I wish everything was as easy as gaining weight. Seriously, I am the only person I know who can literally gain five pounds overnight because of a rogue crouton that was hidden under a piece of ranch-drenched romaine. But there has been a lot of those pesky hidden breadcrumbs over the last few years and I have gotten quite pudgy. It’s one of those things that creeps up on you. Or in my case, you realize you’ve put on a few pounds but have every intention of getting the weight off as soon as some holiday passes. Then, you look at the calendar and realize your husband and Mama have their birthdays just days apart, so there will be cake – twice.
