Jenny Craig Day 16 - Why do I hate Kate Moss?
Today's Jenny Craig Tips:
* Taking dieting advice from Kate Moss only works if you have room in your budget for cocaine.
* A dieter will quickly become an expert at rationalizing cheating.
And now, here are the details of my 16th day on the Jenny Craig Diet Plan...
What I Weighed Today: 189.5 lbs. (8am)
I haven’t heard from Howard today. Refusing to panic. I texted him a couple of times but got nothing back. There are a million reasons for this and they are not all bad. I will calm the voices in my head and wait to hear from him.
I was reading an article on Kate Moss today and she said, “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.” F*ck her! According to the pictures that were published of her last year, apparently cocaine tastes pretty good to her too. I love how these people love to pretend they don’t struggle. I don’t know if this is a purposeful attempt to place themselves on a higher rung than the rest of us or if they truly don’t realize what effect their words have. First of all, I do believe that this woman is as thin as she is because of genetics and I would prefer she say that than pretend she struggles with her food intake. No one needs diet advice from this stupid, coked-out cow. I have more respect for celebrities who admit that they have the bodies they have because their mom and dad were hot.

And here is my other pet peeve: non-celebrities who say, “Well, if I had time to spend all day in the gym I would look great, too” are idiots. OF COURSE YOU WOULD LOOK GREAT TOO, THAT’S THE POINT DUMBASS! Most celebrities understand that their job is to spend 2 hours a day in a gym, if need be, to create a silhouette that is pure fantasy for most of the rest of us. We pay them to create a beautiful fantasy for us. And by the way, I don’t think we should condemn these people if they pad up a bit when they are not working.
What I Ate Today:
Breakfast: Jenny Craig Sunshine Sandwich, 2 cups Coffee w/4 tablespoons sugar-free Hazelnut creamer
Snack 1: Jenny Cookies & Cream Anytime Bar
Lunch: Jenny Craig Cheesy Enchilada, 2 oz. String Cheese, Tomato w/Fat-Free Mayo
Snack: 2 apples
Dinner: Jenny Craig Turkey w/ Gravy, 3 oz. String Cheese, homemade Soupetizer, Cucumbers
Snack: Jenny Craig Toffee Cookies, 3 oz. String Cheese
Now this next opinion may not go over very well, but I do think that if we make a celebrity popular for looking a certain way, we have the right to not pay to look at them if they change significantly. I know how that sounds but here is my reasoning. The whole acting / music / fashion community is based on such shallow standards that there are very few truly talented and deserving individuals working in these industries today. The true test of an artist is someone that people continue to follow no matter their age, weight, hair color or even their sexual orientation. The celebrity that finds that no one wants to pay to see them in a movie after they gain weight or get a little grey should not blame society but take a serious look at their abilities. As far as I’m concerned, it’s karma for having earned millions simply because you have a great ass and a pretty face and never investing any of that money in getting better at the craft you are claiming as a career.
I’m no model, lady. A model’s just an imitation of the real thing. —Mae West
Back to my life. Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels??? Bullsh*t! Depending on the day, my emotional state, my hormone levels and my workload, there are TONS of things that taste just as good if not better than thin feels in that moment. I am making progress. I don’t give in as often. I know that I will be free to indulge once every 28 days, which is helpful. But the last thing I need is to be looked down upon by some talentless b*tch whose idea of a diet is cutting her gram of coke in half. I’m angry today. I’m hungry today. The food is good, we know that, I’ve repeated it often. But it is not always enough to satiate my emotional needs. It’s not enough to quiet the demons in my head that say, “I want, I want, I want!” Sometimes the demons say, “I need, I need, I NEED!” Those are the most dangerous days because I am rationalizing cheating. I am telling myself that I need something specific for my mental or physical health. I am the queen of rationalization. I could convince myself that I needed to have chocolate cake because I had not had enough antioxidants in my diet and the dark chocolate would give me a good dose. Let Kate Moss struggle with that kind of thinking while she’s looking at 200 pounds in the mirror. Let her struggle back from that to the weight she is at now and then, and only then, will I let her utter the words, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” without getting slapped soundly upside her head.
* Jenny Craig Sunshine Sandwich
YUM! This is still a great sammich. I put the ‘Ranchero’ sauce on it and added string cheese and it was really filling.
* Jenny Craig Cheesy Enchilada
Meh. Still don’t like this. It is completely tasteless. I tried adding salt which only made it edible but certainly not enjoyable.
* Jenny Craig Turkey w/ Gravy
YUM! We like this, it is still one of our favorites. It is comfort food done right. Filling and satisfying, physically and emotionally.
* Jenny Craig Toffee Cookies
YUM! God, I wish I could sit with a whole bag of these in my lap and just pound them down while I watch Desperate Housewives. So freakin’ good!
