Thanksgiving Pig Out / Muffin Top with Shortmama!


Okay, some of you may have already seen this picture. But I saw it for the first time on Thanksgiving - and it freakin' cracked me up! I kept looking at it all day and laughing my head off. (Too bad I couldn't laugh my muffin top off) I know - easily amused.

I'm joining in with Shortmama today for Journey from Muffin Top to Skinny Jeans. I jump in occasionally, although I really want to be consistent, both with my journey, and with blogging about it!

She asked us about Thanksgiving. I believe her exact words were: "Did you only eat small amounts of food? Or were there pig noises coming from your mouth as you scarfed down every morsel? "

Pig noises here. But in my defense - my brother hosted, and so his family (us, my other bro, my parents) AND his wife's whole family came - and EVERYONE brought food! So there was a plethora of scrumdiddlyumptious food to choose from! Only, I didn't really choose, more like I sampled everything. Only, I didn't really sample since that would imply small portions. Like I said - pig noises.

One good thing - I'm not much of a pie fan, so I can honestly say, I didn't pig out on pie! And I have been really good all week! Although I'm a little discouraged, because the scale is NOT reflecting my good behavior this morning. Boo. I'm trying to muster up all my strength, because I'm going to a partay tonight at Tanielle's - which is sure to offer up some tasty temptations. So please, my friends - lets have some encouraging words/ tough talk/ slapping me around - anything to prepare me to be strong and resist the temptation tonight.

How was your Thanksgiving?

If you eat anything at Tanielle's?
Make sure you eat enough for me. 'Kay?
I know, I'm no help.

I wish I could give you words of encouragement, but I have none. I'm in kind of a "sieze the day" kind of place at the moment, and I say ENJOY!
But I'll try to be supportive. It's all about moderation. Have a little bit of each thing.
Did it work?

Stay close to the Veggie tray. that fresh taste and crunchy-ness TOTALLY saves me!!

I'm With Sare. Stick near the veggie tray or fruit. I love to eat too, but I have had to learn how to moderate my portions. I know you can do it too. Remember I'm right there with you, and if you don't eat right I may make you skate with me! HAHAHAHAHA! That'd be funny, you and me skating with hula hoops!

'm so excited to see a post from you that I didn't even read it. I just jumped right to the comment section to say...YEAH YOU"RE BACK!

Ok, read the post...


Umm, here's my advice. Share everything you eat with a friend that way it only counts as half!

So did you manage to make it through the partay without more pig noises?

I'm not a pie eater either. I didn't pig out, but I also haven't worked out but once in a month, so....I'm definitely not losing anything. I'm a bad influence on you! BUT, I gained 8 pounds last year and I haven't gained anything this year, so that's progress, right???
