Hips pay for lips’ folly

The problem with a mirror is it always reflects the truth and the truth is that truth is bitter.
Four of us entered the elevator and all three, except me, instantly glanced at the mirror and looked pleased. Only I did not care to look. OK. I did. Why don’t you guys allow me to tell a lie once in a while?
What I saw left me aghast.
While my mind always refuses to have a broad outlook, my tummy did. Gosh. A fat, ugly tummy.
As someone said, the hips pay for lips’ folly (in eating. What did you think?).
I remembered how I pulled my friend’s leg when he tried to stand on a weighing machine: “It doesn’t allow more than one person to stand on it.”
I warned him, “eat to live, not live to eat.” Now, what I am not eating is eating me up: The home food. Unhealthy and untimely hotel food can be damaging and it shows on me.
Hey buddies, don’t worry. I have found a solution. I will start cooking myself. That will be good enough reason to stop eating. I will then shed flab, no fat, only fit. Heyyyyy. Yummy idea. Wanna join? I am waiting to cook for you.

  1. First I must clarify that <a href ="http://wisedonkey.blogspot.com/2009/10/do-i-look-fat.html>I don't believe you are fat </a>
    Its a pity you had to share the mirror with those skinny neurotic unhealthy people.

    But yes, home food is a smart solution:) and do be careful with the sambar :)

  20. I love cooking, and I'd say let our fraternity multiply :). Sure, I love sambar! I am sure, you will do a good job at it. I remember your blog post about cooking rice as well. So, that's a good combination :).

    Jokes apart, more than for the looks, do it for your health.

  22. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’ ~Lao Tzu

    Good decision.Easily said than done.Learning good life style is the key,and to hold on to it.Diet alone never works because it is not practical.
    People look at the mirrors in lifts,because suddenly everyone stops conversations, become aware of the closed space and themselves.

  31. I'm so good at lying to myself that I can look into the mirror and fail to see the extra weight. It was when I tried to get back into my autumn clothes that I realized what all the traveling and staying with my mother had done to me. =/ My mothers food makes the extra pounds sneak up on me and then stick like glue.

    Now I'm doing extra healthy cooking to get rid of the weight and the men in the family is not happy about all those extra veggies I'm serving. They say that they thought that they'd get proper food once I got back home again and they are now threatening to move and live with my mother since she still cooks proper food. =)
