The BIG Diet (Or What Happens When You Deprive Yourself of Luscious Delights)--Week 6

First time on “The BIG Diet”? Start here . Brian. Brian. Brian. What a wonderful name. I swear he’s coming on to me. Happens every time I start to lose weight. Men see me differently. When he checked my chart and saw that I have lost over 20 pounds since last month, he looked into my eyes with those big liquid, brown eyes and said, “Terrific job, Sam.” I don’t usually like when people call me Sam, but Brian has such a sexy way of saying it. There’s something beguiling about Brian--my heart does a flip whenever he walks into the room.... But I’m being silly. I’m an old married woman. This diet would be more tolerable if I could just eat one small meal a day. I feel so depressed when I come home from school, and I know I can’t eat anything. A gap in my life: there’s something social about eating, breaking bread, and I miss that. My marriage suffers because Shel and I don’t eat together. I run my concoction through the blender and retreat to the living room, and Shel hides in the kitchen.
