I Am a Fat Pig!

Watch out you fat pig!
Somewhere along the way it happened, I turned into a fat pig.  Now don’t get me wrong I am not one of those people that you see on The Biggest Loser, but I expect a flock of Angry Birds to be attacking me sometime soon.  Its been a gradual increase over the past ten years and one that has seemed to get out of hand in the last six months or so.  

I actually have some fat pants now because I don’t want to go to the store and get an entirely new wardrobe for fear that I would get too comfortable being THAT big.  What comes after that?  Buying even bigger clothes and I do not want to do that.

So NOT Sexy
I have gone up one pant size in the past 10 years but I am starting to get that belly that hangs over the waistline on my jeans and my feet are starting to disappear.  I don’t even know what color shoes I have on half the time.  I joke about that but I am afraid that's where I am headed without a change in lifestyle. 

I eat too much! 

I make the boys dinner every night and you know how kids are, they eat about a third of what you give them and then who eats the rest?  The fat guy wearing the fleece pants.  While those pants are quite comfortable I have to get out of them.  I need to make better food choices indeed. I notice the change most when I put on those pants I wear every three months, like a suit or dress pants.  The waist just doesn’t seem to close anymore, I am like a half an inch to an inch short.  Its disgusting and I am disgusted in my self, certainly not the father I want to be to my kids.  

No one wants to be the fat father.  

I always prided myself in being able to get down and dirty while playing with my kids, but I just don’t fit into those tunnels at the playground anymore, and the monkey bars, I gave them up years ago. 

Off to the Gym. 

I know that I am not the only man facing this problem as a I can look at a lot of people around me with the same issues.  Its hard to notice a problem when everyone you know has a few more inches on the belly and an extra chin than they used to.  I guess I look normal in comparison.  Maybe I was in denial, so admitting there is a problem is a great first step.  The second step is getting my fat ass to the gym, thats if I can squeeze myself through the front door.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I've noticed that all of my clothes seem to be shrinking in the laundry. I don't know what else could be the cause of them not fitting anymore!
