Fat Attack: Bikini season is right around the corner, but all I’m looking for is an ankle-length turtleneck!

I knew that it would happen. I’ve been there before and I feared I’d be there again. I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and I was fat.

I should have seen it coming from a thousand miles away. I should have known that as soon as I started ignoring my body that it would start asking for attention.

I’m no stranger to the losing weight. In fact, if you’re a faithful reader than you know that this isn’t my first time in a battle with bulge.

The extra pounds come and go from time to time and it’s a part of my life that I’ve accepted. I just wish I had the willpower to gain control of the situation.

And I probably do ... I just find more reasons to not workout or hit the gym.

I live less than three blocks from the West Bank Bridge Park, yet I have never taken advantage of the free walking trail.

I’ve been craving a treadmill, yet I’ve never made that purchase.

I even tell myself that I’ve gained weight because the past year has been medically stressful and that it’s OK.

But the truth is that it’s not OK. I don’t like the extra pudge and I’m beginning to feel uncomfortable.

Here we are, less than two months away from the first day of summer and I’m running from the swimsuits, not jumping in them.

I’m always slim and trim during the winter and hiding behind a beach towel in the summer.

So, I suppose it’s time to grab the bull by the horns and end this charade - mostly because I know better.

I know my body. I know what I need to eat and what I need to do to not only lose the weight, but to be healthy.

The last thing I need is a new diagnosis that closely relates to my mid-section.
