Cause it was my Birthday...THAT'S WHY!

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

July 13th, a date that will live in infamy! My Birthday, my BIG FAT Birthday! Why did I do it? Cause it was my Birthday….that’s why! But what was my excuse for the several day’s pre-birthday and post-birthday? Don’t ask me! I have no idea! Yes that is the size of my butt! Stop judging me! I wanted my cake! I wanted to eat my cake too! And I did, so there! I not only ate cake and cake and more cake but there were friends taking me out to breakfast, lunch and dinner. It started Thursday night and didn’t end until today at noon. At least I think it’s ended, I hope it has ended. What have I learned? Not much, but I do have a question to ask. If you eat a 2 pound box of chocolate why do you gain 5 pounds?!?!?

    Happy Belated B-Day Paula! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    WOW you know how to emoticon

    To answer that question that has perplexed women for centuries, let me put on my Scientific hat.....now where's that tin foil.......ummm here it is. OK, hat's all snug. Ahem, the reason that 2 pounds of chocolate becomes 5 pounds of fat is because as you ingest this extra terrestrial food it converts from a solid to a liquid. As a liquid, it's volume begins to expand (have you ever seen melted chocolate on the loose?) Along with the expansion of volume, mass is accumulated causing the density increase. Thus as a liquid, it becomes 10 times it's solid state.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    You know, I've always wondered why putting x-amount pounds of food in your body makes you gain x-more pounds than went in!! It's like everything they told me in science class about the properties of matter--doesn't matter! I love your humorous outlook on things...staying positive and laughing at/with myself REALLY helps! Rock on. And happy belated!

    Birthdays are OUR special day and it is nice to actually go all out and do things we wouldn't normally do. Like eat more than we would normally AND eat things we wouldn't normally eat, cakes, cream etc etc.

    I think the question you have asked will still be asked long, long after we have all been dead and buried many years. I would love to know how you can gain 5 pounds after only eating 2 pounds of anything.

    Don't beat yourself up too much, just settle back down into a routine and try to start losing again. It will happen.

    Take care and Happy belated Birthday.
