Five Speedy Tricks To Get Over A “Fat Day”
We’ve all had that dreaded “fat day.” You wake up and feel…well, fat. Doesn’t matter if you’re pin-thin or curvy…happens to all of us. It’s not so much a number on the scale as it is a mental thing (and midriff thing). You feel like you weigh two thousand pounds…and all two thousand pounds is located smack dab in your middle section. Yep. Nothing fits right or looks right, no matter how many outfits you try on. And while you’re frantically trying to find a pair of pants or skirt that doesn’t make you feel like a sausage, all the while you’re feeling like a big, bloated blob (no sugar coating here).
First things first…put down the stretchy, elastic waisted pants, ladies. Here are five sure-fire, speedy fixes to give your fat day its walking papers:
Pinpoint the culprit. Figure out the cause of your pudgy predicament. Was it the four extra dirty martinis you had during last night’s happy hour? Salt bombs such as those are guaranteed to leave you feeling plump. Or maybe it was that Texas-sized bacon cheeseburger with a double order of fries you had for dinner. No matter. A fat day is usually “mental” or “emotional,” so once you pinpoint the cause (e.g. guilt over finishing every crumb of that cheeseburger) you can move on to alleviating it.
It’s not them, it’s you. Next, know that most of it is in your head. While you might feel as big as a house, no one else is going to notice. Seriously. You could poll ten people you know and every single one of them would tell you that you look the same as you always do. So, relax. Throw on a cute (but comfortable) outfit and some bold lipstick and everyone (but you) will think you look like a million bucks.Continued on the next page
