Did he eat too much Christmas dinner and leftovers therefrom?

Like throwing a deck chair off the Titanic… ;-)
HIPPY NEW YEAR!!!
the struggle is real
Many, many years ago I made a resolution to never make resolutions. It took me a year to succeed at it and have been successful ever since.
I’m a plugger. I gave up trying to loose weight and now just try not to GAIN. just a tad easier ; )
New Years resolutions are made to go in one year and out the other.
One slice of toast instead of two. One serving of mashed potatoes instead of two. One beer instead of …
I think the kangaroo lady is the only non-obese Plugger in this strip.
did he fail the math in the express lane or couldn’t read the sign
Also, “Happy New Year” means something different to a Plugger than to a young’un. (Maybe the last one?)
Hey! I resemble that remark!!
I’m three pounds less than I was at the end of 2020, so I’m taking that as a win.
Gettin’ kinda tired & bored with the “Plugger Pin-Cushion”-routine here lately. Yeah, most of us come here to “celebrate” our imperfections, rather than let someone lambast us with THEIR-own imaginations of grandeur-perfection.
So, how’s about run or two ’bout the “soon-to-be equals to us in avoirdupois-challenged”-millenials, or even younger, as they are going to be our-future?
Mad? Disgruntled?? Yes, at-MYSELF, for the shape I’ve become! During the 60’s/early-70’s, I was USDA-Prime Beef, buddy!
But I didn’t return to society as “cleanly” as I’d hoped, and got dissed by(some, but far from all)of the very-folks whom I was raised around. If not for meeting an-understanding young lady to whom I still will defend with my-life? I’d been found face-down, in that-gutter where NO-race, creed, color, or, MONEY, ever-existed nor likely ever will. Sometimes, one-needs only the care/compassion, regardless of your choice of life-partner, be it male, female…I dunno, whatever provides the spark to light that fire…that gets your butt-outta that gutter we speak of! As that young-man of the 60’s/70’s, I could kill you with one short thrust.
But now as that old, worn machine of today? I could also lose the battle,m with that-accidental, careless, “never gonna happen to me”-final fall on a dark-icy/muddy cold night. Be you obese or “normal”, whatever that is? Old worn hips, joints, bodies-in-general, still-break and not a thing you can say or do about it!!!……………………………………………………………………………………………….WHEW! A-MEN! And, a final-farewell to a young-lady by the name of Betty White, today. Dang it, she missed the Century mark by a few-literal days.
I’ll stop now. Danged-mind tends to remember too-much of one, an’ not ’nuff the other…
Best way to lose weight seems to be – stay at home during a pandemic and cut the food one and one’s spouse eats by 1/3 to 1/2 so one does not run out and need to go out shopping.
Each lost over 15 lbs during same – of course when could shop again (and stores had food again) it all came back. So back to high school weight now and the 84 lbs I lost sometime before the pandemic.
