The New Holiday Diet

Thanksgiving is behind us and if you were like me you totally overindulged.  My husbands Aunt hosted twenty-one people at her house and had an amazing spread.  It was so good and I thought for sure I had gained ten pounds.  Before the T-day I did attend a spin class where the instructor warned all of us that over the holidays the average person gains seven pounds.  That would definitely up anyone a good dress size.  So I was not expecting to jump on the scale this week to find that I actually lost five pounds over the holiday.  Which is bizarre especially for me.  I guess running after a two year old really helps while shoving your mouth full of stuffing.  Anyway I think I know what did it....wait for it....wait for it.....tight pants.  I have a pair of jeans that I love but were feeling a little snug before Thanksgiving but I thought...if I wear them enough I can stretch them out.  (Come on you all know you do it too).  Yeah didn't happen but then I got to thinking when I had them on I had no desire to eat cookies or anything bad for that matter.  They are "magic" jeans.  Seriously how many times have you put on a pair of pants that were too tight and then run out the door and ate a big mac.  Hell no, you put on tight pants you want to eat a salad and a yogurt or fast on water for a day.  I don't recommend wearing your tight pants outside of the house, no one wants to see that and it could promote chub rub and a yeast infection.  Again don't want to see someone in tight pants itching their crotch.  Not good things.  But in the privacy of your home go on put on those jeans that are a size too small for a week and see how much you weigh after it.  No more "dieting" or "exercising" till you drop.  It's the simpliest method ever. So ladies pull out those "magic" jeans or your "one day" (as in one day I will fit into these again" jeans and try it out.  Let me know how it goes and if you think I could market it?....hmmm Magic jeans promoting chub rub and weight loss.
