The past few weeks I have been desperately trying to shed some weight and for the life of me, it's just not in the cards. I've cut out diet coke, have been trying to eat every few hours, have gone to the gym, took an incredibly difficult body toning class, and yet, when I attempted to put on my favorite jeans or a skirt that was swimming on me last year after my successful run with Jenny Craig, everything is tight.
Actually, everything is really tight. And I'm not happy about it. I don't know why I always manage to sabotage myself right when the weather starts getting nice and now I'm trying to figure out the best way to shrink the belly, thigh and knee fat that have taken up permanent residence in body. I've got friends doing Nutropia, but I ditched that after a week. My mom is a Weight Watchers success story. I just found out that Freshology, the diet that Ricki Lake lost tons of weight on is now in my area. And another mom told me about the Master Cleanse - which guarantees that you'll lose at least six pounds and rid your body of all the toxic crap you've been ingesting over the last few months.
While I'm usually not a magic potion drinker, there is something interesting about that Master Cleanse thing. I mean, maybe that is what my body needs. An inside out car wash if you will. Let's clean out the splenda, mono sodium glutamate, white wine, chocolate cake and all the other junk I've been eating while trying to lose the same 10 pounds I battle every single year.
Of course, I'm sure that after I lose the six pounds, I'll probably gain it right back but if I can at least get a kick start and fit back into my formerly comfy jeans (notice how I don't say skinny jeans), I'll at least be back on the road to sveltesville.
