Fuck I'm fat. Really bloated big beer-bellied ugly fat ugly pig fat.
Europe Zurich seems so trim and healthy, fair and good-looking, it's pissing me right off! I stand out like I'm Vietnam, where I'm usually the largest person in the country.
Here? They're all munching on twenty-seven different types of bread-rolls, scofffing huge plates of meusli for breakfast and quaffing countless beers, white wines and coffee as they munch their kuchen like crazy people, in the afternoon sun, yet they're slim and gorgeous.
Maybe it's because they're all rich. I saw an article somewhere linking obesity with low income. Here's another. Maybe it's because all these Bentley sports-car drivers can afford to eat *good* bread and *good* cakes, and drink *good* beer and *good* coffee they don't get fat.
If this is true, then I need to get a shit-load richer because I've got a several hundred shit-loads of weight to loose, right?
Also blurfing from Sav, I stumbled across this guy's blog - he was 124kg when he started on a diet 2 years ago. That's my exact weight Right Now, troopers, though you might remember when I was only 115kgs just over a year ago... Fuck, I've gone to hell in a food-basket and added 10kg in a year, whereas he's lost 40kg in 2 years... E@L hangs head in shame... Brilliant work by bearded Kim! Bad E@L ...
OK I really gotta do something...
After dinner. *Good* beer anyone?
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
vacation is NOT the time to consider a diet * I KNOW this..i was i paris, 2 weeks ago, remember?* anyway...i was impressed by kim's saga, too...a real motivator, but like anything else...you have to be ready..and you have to be kind to yourself, sugar! btw, i finally quit smoking...2 months ago..clean ever since...how did i break the habit you might ask? (or not cos you know i'll tell you anyway) doc said, if i didn't quit...next time i caught a cold or the flu...he was damn near postive i'd end up in hospital with pneumonia...AND my health insurance already cost me 40fuckin% more because i smoked...10 months more of clean living...that cost drops...all this to say: when you're ready, you'll do it.
I'm with Sav on this one, you don't diet on a vacation. You sample the local cuisine and stuff yourself silly.
Speaking of Zurich, I know someone from there. Healthy, so trim he had an arse you could crack walnuts with. And abs you could use to wash your clothes. Mmmmm.
ok, ok, ok..this is so about me..i DID IT!!! check out my site *twirling* *beaming* *and ever so delighted*
Sav: mmm that beer last night at the jazz club was *good*... I'm just going through one of those phases. p.s. well done!
VPS: Obviously I can eat as much Swiss food as I like becasue it's so not fattening, looking at the people around me! And um, think I'll skip the walnuts if they've been up someone's arse!
I blame Asia and the all work no play life - or at least the limited understanding of play. Every expat I know has started gaining weight after their move.
I blame everyone except myself... But I feel better here in Austria, there are a lot of other fat people here!
I'll buy you a beer or three when you get back...and you should know in your absence I have been losing weight...proof not all expats get fat ~grin~
