Once upon a time, not very long ago I could eat as much as I wanted, whenever I wanted, and not gain weight. Lest you be a member of my family and say "Oh, pssh, Sierra! I never saw you eat!" let me tell you about eating.
When I was at UT I ate a LOT. For breakfast every morning I would have an omelette with cheese, ham, tomatoes, and salsa. I would also have a bowl of cereal and a piece of fruit and a glass of juice. Every single morning of the week! Once a week I would go by this wonderful cafeteria where they had chain restaurants. I would get three breadsticks from Pizza Hut, a six piece nugget box from Chik-Fil-A, and a caramel dulce de leche milkshake from Edy's. If I stayed the weekend, which was very rare, I would eat half of a Papa John's spinach alfredo pizza and half a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream for supper on Saturday night. Sunday was the big meal, boy oh boy. Here we go. I would eat four kinds of cereal (half a bowl each), a donut, a brownie, eggs (either scrambled or an omelette), bacon, ham, hasbrowns, a biscuit with either jelly or gravy, sometimes both, fruit, juice, and water. Then I would roll down the stairs. I could also eat Pop Tarts and Debbie Cakes anytime I wanted. And absolutely nothing gave me indigestion. Ahhhh, the good ol days!
Today I had an oatmeal creme pie for breakfast, three pieces of ham and half a slice of pumpkin roll for lunch, chicken noodle and veggie soup for dinner, and 1/2 a serving of ice cream for snack. Not awesome, but not exactly the calories of days gone by. And yet!! I weigh twenty-five pounds more today than I did at UT. TWENTY-FREAKIN'-FIVE!!! And I get indigestion. And I try not to keep Pop Tarts in the house. Where is the justice I ask you???
Here I am skinny:
(Don't worry, my makeup is a lot better now. I had danced it all off that night)
Here I am not so skinny:
I have chinSSS as in plural! I am Chin Girl!
Siiiiiigggggghhhh. It has to stop. I can't be Chin Girl. Any suggestions for getting my metabolism back would be awesome because I really want some more ice cream, but I'm afraid another chin would appear overnight.
