Staying Above the Yellow Line

Here is an unflattering photo of me in a shirt I haven't worn in public since circa 2007. This is because I became too skinny for the shirt. Now, as the picture clearly shows, the shirt has shrunk.

Or, I have grown.

In a conversation with my sister, we joked that I was the perfect candidate for a commercial:

"After getting married, I just lost motivation. I gained weight and got to the point where no matter what I did, I wasn't capable of summoning the strength to work it off."

The REAL joke, however, was that I've only been married 3.5 months. 3.5 months and I'm already a walking, talking infomercial. Apparently, I fall off the wagon hard and fast.

But there's good news! I once again have a reason to loose weight. But it's top secret.

(More info coming later . . .)


  1. Amanda, you're still looking great! I have these issues as well, and after Tom's sister-in-law posted a number of photos of facebook of our family visit, I suddenly found extreme motivation...gaaah! And I admire your August writing commitment!

  3. Is that Tad in the back, drawing you?

  4. What's the secret? What's the secret?!

  5. Thanks, Sara! And I think you too should write daily!

    Chip - haha. actually, Tad was drawing a Mech. Which is like a robot thing. But I'm not entirely sure.
