These Aren’t Skinny Jeans, I’m Just Fat


Someone asked me the other day if I was wearing skinny jeans. What do you do with that question if the answer is “no.”

I smiled, shook my head, and replied, “No, these aren’t skinny jeans, I’m just fat.”

Disclaimer 1: (I owe my response to comedian Jim Gaffigan)

Disclaimer 2: (No, that’s not me in the picture above)

The Skinny Jeans Comment, as I’ve come to call it, was one of the catalysts helping me back on the health, fitness, and weight loss wagon. Well, I’m at least running behind the wagon. Ok, I’m walking behind the wagon hoping it will slow down.


To jump start my health initiative, I decided to reduce my soda (or Coca-Cola) intake. People have asked me what I was trying to avoid by stopping my soda intake.

They ask, “Is it the calories the carbonation, or the caffeine?

My answer: Yes.

So, as of this morning, I am officially off of soda (although today would be a really good day for a Coke).

I’ll post an update in the morning as to whether or not I made it through today without one.
