The call of the cookie jar..

Last year, and the year before the last.. and the year before that..

No, that doesn't sound right. Let me start again. For the past 19 years of my life, the first thing I did as soon as I walked into a departmental store would be running to the chocolate, ice-cream and cookie section. I'd run haywire in the shop, pick up bars and tubs of poison and stuff my already overstuffed face with it all.. without sharing it with anyone. I shared Joey's philosophy on food. I did not share.

For the past 2 years though, all that has changed. I joined a gym and the harsh reality of being 12 kilos overweight hit me hard. So, i quit food. I started the anti-food movement with a good friend of mine (who was skin and bones already, but she is, a paranoid person and thinks she resembles a walrus) We barely ate and over-excercised. Things were going smoothly and as per our plan until our health's got in the way. We started loosing our resistance. We fell sick more often, had fainting spells now and then (my coolest fainting spell was in the loo.. i felt i was flying, until my head hit the bathroom tile) and threw up certain things we ate.

I wanted this post to be a little funny.. But the flow of words have taken a different direction. Children.. Ladies especially, reading this post. Do not starve and deprive yourself of food. It is uncool and stupid.

Eat the occasional chocolate chip cookie and glug a whole glass of coffee with tons of cream on it.. You can sin. It's human to sin.

Yesterday my uncle picked up tons of Oatmeal cookies covered in chocolate sause. I tried not to eat them, but the cookie jar looked at me accusingly and seemed to say, "After all these years, can you honestly look me in the eye and tell me that you don't love me anymore" I hugged the jar and whispered back with moist eyes; "I still love you with all my heart" and before I knew what I was doing, I ate 2 whole cookies and ran as fast and far as my legs could carry me.

I repeat.. It's human to sin. Eat that cookie without hesitation. You know you deserve it.

Thank God, I have no such problems. I hog like a pig but I am still trim. I eat whatever I like. I don't even think that it is sin.

It's all about choice.

Awwwweee...!! That bit about the cookie jar asking you if you loved 'him' was so cute!!! I have been junk food swimming for the past two weeks (this time excuse: exams!!) And now, my clothes are tight around the wrong (or right..depends..;)) places! Cant wait to trim those inches off - again!!

Wooo ... believe me ... this holds good not only for girls and women .. there are those poor dudes who dream of v-shaped torso and t-shirt-tearing-lean-muscle (colored in guilt ... i happen to be one of the lot too :-(). But u know ...(pardon me for donning the Guru's hat) I have often found a good mix of dieting and good work out helps best ... of course .. I do cheat on my diets now and then to keep me going. ~;-)~

If you really want to lose your weight, you should follow my 3 simple steps:
1) Eat fattening foods like crazy
2) Play hardcore badminton
3) Use only public transport

I swear, i'll eat my pair of socks if this doesnt work. maybe i should patent this formula :P

Trinity said...

my policy is eat you fill and exercise... tho i dont end up doing it!

So now my altered policy is eat, but only little...dont starve or overeat so you dont have to exercise :) but still i have to exercise my excess 6 kilos.
The part of your anurexic friend and her idea of her looking like a walrus was funny

Missed you at the bloggers meet

Karthik said...

I am a Potato Chip man and I completely agree with you. 'Its human to sin and I deserve my bag of chips :)'

Ekta said...

I am sooo glad to read the post..and agree with EVERY word here..
I too have gone on the losing weight spree but always been wary of not going overboard..have NEVER starved myself and never will...but am careful abt not overdoing and regular gymming..
and hey..Chocolates still continue to be my first love..and am not gonna run after this!

oh try eating a full meal and then purging it out- put your finger in and throw up. that way nothing sticks in, the acid regurgitates screwing up your food pipe, and you even get a cool änorexic disorder plus an all expense payed trip to the shrink!!

girls world over- go psycho! the world needs more of you!
