An Expert

With all of the time I have spent on vacation (and with my family while they've been on vacation) lately, it has been hard to stay on any sort of schedule. With this lack of schedule comes a lack of meal planning (not to mention sleep!). Also, for some reason, I tend to eat more junk food while family is around and, of course, we eat out a lot more often. While I had family visiting from out of state a few months ago I gained 5 pounds. I was disappointed, but lost it soon after I returned to my regular eating habits. It also took me about 3 weeks to gain the 5 pounds, so that wasn't too bad. This last week, though, while spending time with Shaun's family and my parents I gained SEVEN pounds. In one week! I guess this proves that I need to exercise more (although I didn't really need any further proof). I have been wanting to lose a few pounds and this definitely doesn't help. I have decided that I am an expert in the art of gaining large amounts of body weight in short amounts of time. I hereby offer my services for a small fee to anyone who would like to know the secret to gaining 7 pounds in one week. I could probably even make you gain more, actually. Do I have any takers?... Anyone?... No? Oh, well. I guess I'm not the first to figure out how to do it. Maybe I could get some celebrities that have to play a "fat" person in their next movie to hire me. I wonder how much they would pay me?

I bet they would pay you enough to go out to eat a few times...and gain another seven pounds!
Good luck with your new business. :)

Ah, yes. I'm sort of an expert on that, too.

Ya, I don't really need help in that particular area... however, if you know how to lose 7 lbs in a week your services would be much appreciated! I think you look great tho! Did you have an easy time losing the baby weight with baby 1 and 2? That was my downfall.

I taught her this trade.

You know the scriptures teach that every man is given a gift... maybe this yours. Just because the D&C doesn't mention rapid weight gain in its list of various spiritual gifts doesn't mean it's not special, too. :)
