Ex-Boyfriend Fat

August 27, 2009

I work with some great ladies. One in particular complimented me several times today.

“Well, don’t you look nice today? What a snappy dress,” Tanya said. “Oh and those shoes are so fifties.”

“Yeah, thanks,” I said. And then I admitted, ‘I’ll be wearing dresses a lot in the next few weeks – I only have two pairs of pants that fit right now, and one of them is a pair of jeans.”

“Oh,” Tanya said knowingly and with a bit of a laugh. You see, we can’t wear jeans to work. “Well, either way, you look nice.”

That was this morning. This afternoon I admitted my jean situation to my supervisor.

“I think it’s ex-boyfriend fat,” I said. “I’m not proud of it, but I’m single again and I’m craving chocolate almost constantly – and I make this great microwave fudge.”

He laughed pretty loudly at that.

And I guess it would be funny, if it wasn’t an extra 10 pounds around my middle.

Okay it’s funny. But I also need to quit eating so much. And I definitely need to quit eating so much fudge – right after I finish the pan that is sitting on my kitchen table.
