Chocolates, Marshmallows, and Pancakes

I am feeling so fat right now. I have heard people say I gained weight and my double chin is starting to bulge a little. My arms look so muscular in a flabby way. My legs have been given the name "thunder thighs" by my brother. Oh, brother! Everything else, I am sad to admit, has also grown proportionally. Could this be because of pre-menstrual syndrome? It can't be! It does not fit (something to do with the irregularity of my supposedly "monthly" cycle). This can't be write. It isn't. I meant to say "right."
I have tried to get back into shape (as if) ever since I came from the United States. Everything there was just so lovely and delicious, I could not resist sinking my teeth into them. The chocolates were wrapped in pretty foil and paper and were really huge. I especially loved the one with marshmallows inside (chocomallows will always be a favorite!). I ate to my heart's and taste buds' (I am a Health Science Major, might as well) delight with the excuse that it's vacation time anyway, I can eat whatever I want. Then there was the pancake. I got so excited and jumped hysterically when I saw a sign before me. It read "The International House of Pancakes." I knew in that very moment I was in heaven. Pancakes will forever be my first love and as they say, first love never dies.
Going back to the issue of my current problem, ever since my trip to the United States, I have found it very difficult to lose the weight I gained. For the sake of my readers (I'm revealing myself here!), let's just say I gained 10 pounds more or less. I tried everything to get my weight down! Cardio exercises, gym memberships, sports, dieting, and starving just resulted into my weight fluctuating up and down endlessly. I am in a state of emergency right now. Stress and depression aren't going to help me lose any of the weight either because I eat when I'm stressed or depressed! This is both stressful and depressing at the same time!
Thinking about my weight and the circumferences of my appendages and the puffiness of my cheeks take up most of my time nowadays. Good thing I now have school to think about, too! I hope you sensed the sarcasm in the last sentence. This is bad. This is really bad. When things go from bad to worse, there is only one thing that can get my spirit up - SHOPPING! Because I live in Katipunan, which is relatively far (plus the traffic) from any major malls, I have been left with being content with Rustan's Supermarket and Shoppersville. I bought myself some cookies today. I literally ran away from the Yummy Favorites of Ange aisle as I kept thinking to myself what my brother would say if he was with me. A moment on the lips, forever on the hips. At least now i can munch on cookies in between classes.

New blog URL :D

Hi sir! I changed my blog URL. I found this easier to use than the other one. :)
