I couldn't have said it better...

"You want to lose ten pounds but you don't have a personal trainer like the
celebrities do? Well, you will just have to rely on willpower. And of course you
don't HAVE any willpower. If you did, you'd be doing stomach crunches right now,
instead of reading this. But there you sit, lump-like, while the millions of fat
cells in your thighs mate furiously and give birth to gigantic litters." ~Dave Barry, world's funniest writer.

I laughed so hard reading this! Here I am, on a "weight loss mission" to beat the post-partum pudge as well as the pre-pregnancy-pounds and what am I doing? Reading blogs, which are, to the best of my knowledge, not known for their Calorie-burning potential.

I will thank Alexis for her recommendation of "Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell After Pregnancy." Now, if only carrying the book around from room to room in the house counted as weight-bearing exercise... Seriously, for those of us whose fat cells are quite happy as they are, it's a great and realistic mode of attack. I have noticed a difference in myself - a little on the scale, and even more with my health and body-image. It may sound silly, but I'm pleased with the results thus far. Maybe in a few months I'll have more visable results. In the meantime, here I sit reading blogs providing that breeding-ground for those mating fat cells. :)

Okay well, now you have just made me feel guilty. I was planning on going to the gym tonight because I didn't get there this morning but then changed my mind. I decided I would just do double my work out in the morning and so I sit here reading your blog, and well now I know I HAVE to get up in the morning and go, or my mating fat cells will only "reproduce" more. Thank you for that quote I love it.
