Some Do’s and Don’ts for Thanksgiving

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week.  I feel like the fall just started.   That I just started seeing the leaves change colors.  That I just started wearing a coat.  That I just started drinking my pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. And yet, regardless of me thinking it’s too soon for Thanksgiving to be approaching, the fact of the matter is it is.  And with that said, I’ve compiled a short list of do’s and don’ts for my second favorite holiday.


I’m Thicker and Hate it!

Dear T,

I’m just going to put it on the table.  I’m extremely uncomfortable being naked around my partner.  We’ve been together for about 8 months, and I’ve put on about 18 pounds.  Yes 18.  Heck, the number of pants I can fit these days are few.  While on one hand I’m kind of happy about the butt I never had starting to grow, I can’t deal with the extra stomach.  The love handles aren’t sexy to me.  Now my boyfriend says I’m still sexy to him, and even sexier now that there is a little more cushion for the pushin.  Ironically, I don’t feel confident like I use to during sex. I wear a shirt and the lights stay off.  I know I should go on an Herbal Life slim down or something, but what do I do in the meantime.  It took 8 months to put on the weight, so I know it will take some time to lose it.  Appreciate the help.
