Do you remember that bathing suit? Well, I couldn't even get it over my thighs (commence violin playing.) To be fair to myself and women everywhere trying this particular suit on, there is boning in the bust, making it impossible to fit over hips that might be larger than one's bust. Since my hips are way bigger than my rib cage and I didn't want to risk ripping the suit, back it went to the store. Le sigh.
On that note, yesterday I started on my diet kick again--about a month before our summer vacation and my cousin's wedding. It does not help that things like this pop up on NPR::Kitchen:
I've gained the newlywed nine and am trying to make it the newlywed four. I'm amazed at how many people tell me five pounds is nothing, when it takes me six-eight weeks of eating much, much less than I'm capable of and exercising four-five times a week.
Is anyone else dieting in time for summer? That nutella looks good, doesn't it?
