Disaster with the decorator - Page 4

post #46 of 77
I gained 75# with both of my kids, thanks to my lack of self control. The rest of me is okay, but my poor abs will never be the same. It's like a deflated, flabby, saggy balloon. I've found that if you show enough cleavage, nobody will notice the gut. icon_lol.gif I've been looking for a waist cincher/corset type thing to rein in my gut when necessary.

I guess skinny bakers/cooks can't be trusted!

As long as ya'll keep putting smiley's behind these comments I won't get offended.

Come on now. Those sayings are getting a little old. How many buttons would I push if I said, "She must be a great baker because she so fat" icon_biggrin.gif (does it make it better with the smiley?). We all know a dress size doesn't constitute how good of baker you are.

If you feel like you're gaining weight due to sampling, cut back. I don't sample everything I make because I make it based on a recipe and I know if I made it and tasted it the first 5 times, chances are it still tastes the same. If you really need to taste test, make your DH do it, so he can gain the weight (that's the other route I go).

I went up to a size 16 when I was pregnant with my twins (from a size 6) and the whole time I still thought I looked fabulous. When I started dropping the weight, I kept saying, "Still fabulous". You make or break how good you look. If you're on the pudgy side, WORK IT! You're as fabulous as you want to be.

Amen! The truth is I'm happy with the size I am, BUT I have a long, beautiful gown I have to wear in June and it's a wee bit too tight. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't give a rip! (Although, I do know the return policy at the store and I can exchange if necessary, but I don't want to.)

What you said earlier was right on target. thumbs_up.gif

Personally, I don't think I have gained weight from cake eating. Over the past 10 years I have gone from 90 pounds to 135 pounds. I'm 5'6" so I am still a healthy size and I do exercise almost daily. Yet it is still a struggle not to get bigger. I think it has a lot to do with age, genes, things we eat other than cake and just plain stress of life in general. As it is I don't really eat too much cake anymore, but I do have a serious chocolate addiction. If it weren't for my hours of cardio every week, I might not be able to make it through the door! But that addiction was there even when I weighed 90 pounds and desperately wanted to gain some weight. It never happened until I started getting older. I'm 35 now and realizing that indeed, if my body were a car, I wouldn't buy it. Too much maintenance! Too much!

Sharon, I think there is a lot to what you say. My mom is 5'7" and was barely over 110, EVER, until she went on prednisone and she was in her mid-40's then. She was tall and lean and she is not fat at all, just a small belly. I, on the other hand, take after my dad, short and fat. I've always fought my weight but getting older and sitting in an office take a toll on me. When we go on vacation or I just take a week off, I always lose weight but then I go back to the office. I have to take it off now or I'm going to have to go on blood pressure medicine. So, wish me luck because I do NOT EVER want to go on blood pressure medicine.

WOW! That is amazing! I had to take prednisone a while back too! It put everything out of whack for me! Never again! My doctor said that sometimes some people take over a year to completely get over it.
As for your situation, what I can suggest for you is the book: The ABs Diet. (A bright orange-colored book) It will change your life/lifestyle! Seriously. I am never into those kinds of books, but this one was more than just a diet book! Its information that can save a life!

All this is making me hungry! I'm getting a spoon and the bowl of buttercream from the fridge. Anyone want some?

This is too funny, I lost 60lbs when I threw my husband out, it was called "new men are going to see me naked" then cakes, and buttercream came into my life. My uncle asked me, oh I see you've been sampling quite a few of those cakes. I almost bitch-slapped the guy.

Ok..off to get my spoon, anyone? anyone?
