In any event, here is my personal take on the crusade against calories. As someone who's childhood was spent shopping for pants in the "HUSKY" section of the store, I have always been an enlisted soldier in the "Battle of the Bulge." For the past 16 years I have been a Vegetarian (strict, but not Vegan -- I do have some dairy, mostly in the form of cheese). Despite my healthy eating habits, I remained the antithesis of the classic skinny Vegetarian stereotype. As the self-imposed "World's Chubbiest Vegetarian" I proudly told people (when they stared at my belly in horror upon learning that I was a veggie), "hey, there's no meat or fish in cookies and ice cream!!!"
That said, I am currently on a "GETTING SHIT DONE" roll, and in that spirit, I have lost 16 pounds so far this year, and am within reach of hitting a 15 year low weight! How? EXERCISE, EATING WELL, and MANAGING MY METABOLISM. In the spirit of FatBlogging, I will write a separate post dealing with my specific thoughts on the process (at least the process that seems to be working for me... )
Meanwhile, what about PHAT BLOGGING! (or, PhatBloggingTM). Forget weight loss, let's blog about getting PHAT!
- Write about how you saved up for your custom gold GRILLS and post pictures of your shiny smile!
- Write about how you took out a second mortgage to pay for the RIMS on your ESCALADE!
- Shoelaces? We don't need no stinkin' shoelaces!
Now that's PHATBLOGGING!!!
