Fine! I did it.

Monday, May 31, 2010

Okay, so I got the results of all my tests back from the endocrinologist. Her conclusion was the same as my primary care doctor's.

I'm F-A-T.

And apparently, it's all my fault. You know how I hate to take responsibility for anything so I'm going to blame this on my mother.

For those of you who were following my Stripalicious Challenge, you know that I fell off that wagon and haven't posted in a month. I guess it's time for me to suck it up, realize that I have the snail's pace metabolism of a 40-something year old woman and step up my game to try to get this weight off.

It's ironic because 20 years ago, I went for a consultation to have a boob job and now that I actually have them, they are a HUGE pain in my ass. I like to dress conservatively in my job and it's become a challenge because none of my jackets or blouses button. I've gone from looking like a polished professional to looking like Daisy Duke.

No, you can't click on this to enlarge it, Perv.

I guess I should take SOME responsibility for it. I've always been an emotional eater but no one would ever guess it. I remember years ago, a close friend of mine who was about 60 pounds overweight was shocked that I could eat a whole bag of Chips Ahoy cookies in one sitting.

I was shocked that she couldn't. I mean, c'mon, 1000 chips in every bag!

I suppose I was lucky that I never gained weight by eating all that crap. Although, if I had, maybe I would have learned to deal with the emotional reasons why I do it.

Son of a bitch!

You know what this means, don't you?


I need to "look inside"and figure out why I find comfort in a half gallon of Ruggles M&M Cookie Dough Ice Cream with hot fudge and whipped cream. (deep sigh...)

It's probably because I've given up on finding comfort with a man. A string of bad break ups have made me too afraid to even try anymore.


I think we're making progress!

Oh, I'm sorry. Our time is up for this week. See you next time.


  1. Hey Chrissy! I feel for you, I really do; I find solace in pizza, so in that respect we're very similar. Self image is a tricky thing, and I can't convince you what I'm saying is true, but I think you're fabulous, and I think you'll find most people here (both sexes) feel the same way. By the way, there are good guys out there, even if 99.9% of us are self-absorbed morons. Indigo x

  2. I recently read a book called In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan, and it completely changed my eating habits. I don't eat any less; I just eat better, and my body's naturally adjusted, making me look ultra sexy. Also, because I know that you know that I clicked on your boob picture, I would just like to acknowledge it and say that I have no excuses.

  3. Your first step was admitting what you're doing... can only get better from here. Lots of hard work though.

  4. I said it once I'll say it again. You are smoking hot. Dont change a thing.

  5. I have to agree 100% with Simply Suthern....

    "You are smoking hot. Don't change a thing."

    (((( Chrissy )))))

    X ya, girl!

  6. I could totally eat a whole bag of Chips Ahoy cookies. I'm surprised others can't either!

  7. I can eat a whole bag of almost anything. Good luck to you - so many of us go through the same shit! I am checking into a new book called Women Food and God (featured on Oprah).

  8. Great.
    You've just peer pressured me into putting down my bag of Chips A'Hoy.


  9. Girl I know your pain. I can kill a bag of Oreos not even realizing I ate the whole bag before heading to the kitchen for ice cream. Then I blame the kids for making me buy them in the first place. That's right I blame the kids for my weight gain, it's all their fault, lol.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate (lol)

  10. @IndigoWrath,
    Aw, you always know the just right thing to say. Thanks. :-)

    @C. Andres Alderete,
    Thanks for the recommendation. I can only hope to look half as ultra sexy as you.

    And, of course you did.

    Yep. Baby steps.

    @Simply Suthern & Ron,
    Somehow I never tire of hearing that. Thanks! :-)

    THANK you.

    I'll have to check that out. I think I saw part of that Oprah.

    Please eat them so I can live vicariously through you.

    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
