“The Devil Made Me Do It!”

A Tasty Tidbit from All Is Forgiven, Move On (hits the stands this Thursday!)
Keeping in mind that there are reasons – and then – there are excuses and that what may be a valid reason for one person may be an excuse for another, tell me … what’s your excuse? Believe me, I have heard them all! Heck, I’ve used them all!
Bad haircut is my own personal favorite. Listen, I can take a lot in life – really! But a bad hair cut is enough to throw me over the edge. And boy did I have one – last year; it’s still growing out. Nevertheless, I managed to take out my frustrations on the walking path and when I hit rock bottom, I binged on carrots until my jaw hurt.
Excuse me! Excuse YOU!
A reason is a noun, pronounced ‘rE-z&n – it is a statement offered in explanation or justification; something that supports a conclusions or explains a fact.
An excuse is a transitive verb, pronunced ik-‘skyüz,- to make apology for; to try to remove flame from; to serve as excuse for: to justify. (Source: Miriam-Webster Dictionary)
What’s your excuse?

Well, everything but the chow wagon. * Being a Mom (triplets no less) * honey, in the spirit of solidarity you need: my mother and I have a teenager * sugar addiction * failed so many times, am afraid to try again * it’s too hot to go out and exercise * it’s too cold to go out and exercise * my TIVO isn’t working and I’ll miss my favorite show * just don’t care anymore * I’m 60 and don’t think it matters anymore if I am 50 pounds overweight…. BUT, really I do * I don’t get enough sleep * I don’t want to * My mother didn’t praise me as a child. * My mother was an over-eater. * All the women in my family are fat. * Quality Control – I’m a Catering Director of a Hotel, constantly around food, talking about food, trying new menu items, etc. My excuse is “it’s my job to taste the food” * The devil made me do it! * I’m big boned! * Most of the above! * All of the above!
Do tell… What IS your excuse? Leave a comment and/or join the Kick in the Tush Club community to discuss!

    Here’s one that just came up for me: A relative passed away, and I won’t have any control over all the food that gets served after the funeral. I’m telling myself in advance, “Eat vegetables, as much as possible!”

    Here are a few more: it’s too much work…I forget I’m trying to lose weight until after I overeat…I have a split personality and one side eats while the other says No! No! and so far the eating side is stronger than the No! No! side…I’m lazy…it ensures that I don’t do the things I ought to be doing so I won’t have to face possible failure…
    This is sickening.
