Fatty Fat Fat

Starling has been a bit of a piggy lately.   She gobbles down the carrot I let her have after school, and I once even caught her eating half a slice of cheese when she thought I wasn’t looking.  She has no idea how quickly her metabolism will catch up with her, obviously.

Right now I have her on a strict diet because, as beautiful as she is, she is kind of “sturdy”.

It is hard for lil’ girls.  Their friends are all cruel and make fun of them for the slightest thing.  I would hate for Starling’s friends to see her eating a big ol’ handful of celery or maybe a carb filled cracker, and make fun of how fat her thighs are.  I want to protect her from the cruelties of childhood.

Exactly how hard is it to resist a fat filled cake?  I have no idea why she cried for over an hour.  I was able to resist it easily.

This afternoon we ended up over at the Sullivans, and Karen had made a cake for the children.  Starling wanted a piece but, excuse me, she doesn’t need any cake.  She needs a few laps around the reservoir.  Merlin was getting a second helping (boys are so lucky, no one cares what they look like) and she started crying and begging me for a tiny taste of icing.  I told her that she was acting like a big fat baby, and to knock it off.

We ended up having to leave early because of her terrible behavior.  You would think she would be thanking me for caring about her enough to say, “No.”

I did let her have a slice of apple later as a treat, but she had to spit it out after she chewed it.

And, as soon as she has a proper thigh gap, she can be on a maintenance diet.

    And what is she thinking, wearing horizontal stripes?! Ugh, it’s like she didn’t inherit your fashion genes at all. And that that boring hair and no makeup look just draws attention to her neck pudge. Could you show her a nice updo, pluck her eyebrows and use some contour blush to fake cheekbones until she loses enough weight to develop real ones?

    It has got to be hard for you, mama, having to deal with this – she looks more like her brothers than her thin, supperhero mama!

      Great ideas, Pesky! I have her wearing Spanx now, so she doesn’t get teased. I tell her it is long underwear, for warmth, but I don’t know how I will handle it if she doesn’t lose a lil’ weight soon. Shapewear can be hot in the summer.

    I’m so proud of you for instilling healthy eating habits in your precious children! Apples and celery have so many health benefits! Antioxidants and free radicals and steel belted radials, all the goodies including stuff we don’t even know about yet! She may be too young to thank you now, but look for a huge heartfelt hug from her in your future! Such a darling child, who cares if she’s more Porky Pig than Olive Oyl.

    Does she get outside for exercise? Perhaps she could do some classes at your gym? Maybe that would be better than a starvation diet. I have heard a lot in the news lately about restrictive eating disorders and orthorexia. It’s a big problem not only among young girls but with adult women in their 40’s as well. And I have heard (from a friend of course) that treatment for that stuff is very costly and difficult. Just sayin.

    Make sure the school is on board! My daughter was on a diet and then her good for nothing teacher RUINED it by letting her eat a cupcake on a classmates birthday. I told the school that she had a gluten albs peanut allergies so they would stop feeding her. (And the rest of the class can’t bring in treats either! It’s a win for us all.)

    Why would you want to treat that? Not eating is how you stay thin. Who cares if you faint sometimes. Sounds like the treatements are run by weak- willed fatties.
