Pretty Much Everything Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels

I am a big lass, I'm overweight, and you know what? That's ok. I lose weight, I put it on, it never changes me as a person and I can honestly say that, at my thinnest, I was no happier or unhappier than at my biggest. My weight doesn't define me as a person, a friend, a lover or an enemy.

I was looking at the saying, used by many as an inspirational quote when they are trying to lose weight,

"Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" 

Well that is total bollocks. There are MANY MANY MANY things out there that taste as good as skinny feels. Firstly, before I give you a list of foods that will give you a food boner, why are we even comparing eating to body shape? Is it the assumption that all food that tastes good will make you put on weight? Jesus, no wonder we don't know whether we are coming or going? I'm not going to sit here and say that you can eat anything that you want to in moderation, probably because I have the self control of Kim Kardashian when given a mirror and a camera phone....... None, and you don't need me to preach to you what you can and can't eat, your body, your rules, your choice. 

But I digress, I was thinking about food that tastes as good as skinny feels. So here is my list, and I would LOVE to know what yours is too. 

Hot buttered toast and jam. 

Cheeseburgers, preferably with an onion ring or three thrown in. 

Crisp, juicy bright green apples. 

Cake, all cake, I don't mean a slice of cake, if I'd have meant a slice of cake, I'd have said a slice. Give me the cake, and some time. 

Oooooh Brownies, preferably these ones.

(food boner, am I right?) 

Sushi, vegetable Sushi. 



Cheesy bacon. 

I am now hungry. 

What is your food list? Let me know.
