Say yes to a dress, say no effing way to those shorts….


I was thinking I wanted to lose a few pounds, you know, shed the extra winter weight that inevitably comes from too many lethargic nights on the couch when it was -38C and the wind was whipping by my windows at 60 km/h.

It’s tough to get out of a comfortable routine, especially when you fully comprehend the new routine will require getting your arse off the couch and making it do some exercise.  I start each day with the best of intentions and then somehow the bad habits are happening before I even realize it.

Facebook has been a bit of a thorn in my side lately.  Were it not for posting my blog to it as frequently as possible, I would probably eradicate its evilness from my life.  But then I saw this in my Facebook news feed……

….possibly the best motivational tool for weight loss I have seen yet.  While it is highly improbable, no, completely preposterous to imagine I would even attempt to dress like that, let alone go out in public, this glaring reminder of shrinking clothing versus expanding fat cells slapped me in the face.

Next time I feel the need to snack on that late night popcorn or make that relatively innocent cream sauce for my chicken this image will gallop to the front of my cerebral cortex and blind me with its perceptual awareness.  Salad anyone?

  1. That photo is wrong on so many levels. I’ve seen some bad stuff- but not that bad- and it makes me wonder two things: 1) can they not feel the tingling of the nerve damage from the restricted circulation, and 2) do they not own a mirror?!

  2. I am always torn, when I see people walking around in mystifying outfits, between admiration for their complete acceptance of their bodies and horror at their lack of friends.

  3. So, so wrong! Interesting that she appears to be in a fast food place…..with a couple of skinny butts standing beside her 🙂 and the Tramp Stamp is the finishing touch!!!
