Diet

*Sigh* ... *Grinds teeth* .... *Massages head*

OK, yes. I am on a diet. There is no escaping the fact that I am overweight. It cannot be hidden any longer. Years of wearing jalabiyya have conned me into thinking I am thin. I am not. Not in any conceivable form. OK, yes there are some tribes in Africa who think my bodyshape is the epitome of womanly beauty, but they are not people I hang out with. In medical terms I am two points off the scale from being officially obese. Yes, people: OBESE.

Now bear in mind that before I got married I was 7stone. Not healthy but damn I looked good. Now my weight has increased to... well let's just say there's a seven in there somewhere...

I have had enough. I want to be thin again. I am tired of wearing jogpants (why is it that the only thing fat people can wear is *jogpants*). I am tired of being round. Goddamn it - I want curves again - and not on my thighs.

So let's see. I've officially been on my diet since 9am this morning and already I feel as though I haven't eaten for 27 days. I am disappointed I haven't yet lost the three-ish stone I want to lose, because it feels by the sheer amount of pain in my head that I should have done...

All fat jokes this way,please...

If you're looking for a get
out clause in this ridiculous torture called *dieting* I have one, and I use it A LOT.

I think it is totally rational that as you are breastfeeding, not long had the bubba and not sleeping you should not be dieting. Eating is what is keeping you going. I don't mean make Mars Bars the staple food of the house but, you know, eating nice food and not feeling guilty about it. And remember what the Best friends guide says (and I can testify to this too) nine months up and nine months down again, reagrdless of what you do.

Now go eat. Bismillah.

Oh P.S those medical charts suck. And are completely false. My Dh is 'fat'. Have you seen him??!!!

Well medical charts or not I want to be thin again. I am fed up of wearing pyjamas and baggy tops. I don't want to be a size 8 again (well yeah I do) - just something that means I can wear *clothes* again and not look like beach ball would be nice.

Baby puking, must go now
