Sara stepped out of the shower and onto the scale. She frowned at the numbers that screamed out at her as if taunting her.
Winter had not been kind to her weight.
She pinched the extra rolls that jiggled around her stomach. It felt like an extra heavy sweater that she couldn’t remove. How Santa could be jolly with his little round belly was a mystery. Her stomach was just plain gross.
Looking at her full length reflection in the mirror, she felt nauseous. Who was that middle-aged fat lady staring back at her?
She peered into her closet wondering what to wear. All her summer clothes seemed to have shrunk while they’d been in there for the past six months.
That was it. She would join the gym and start a diet right away this very minute.
She peered into the fridge looking for some healthy fruit and vegetables to snack on. There wasn’t much to pick from, a few bruised apples and some limp celery. She would have to go grocery shopping.
Then she spied some chocolate cake left over from Brad’s birthday. She’d better finish that cake off first so she wouldn’t have all that temptation.
Standing over the sink, she managed to gobble up the cake in five minutes flat while the family was still asleep. After wiping the tell tale chocolate off her mouth with her sleeve, she took a broom and quickly swept the cake crumbs off the floor.
She’d wait and start her regime tomorrow.
