Happy National Doughnut Day?
{darlings, this doughnut day business does me no good}

Bathing suit weather is upon us….
and after celebrations and BBQs galore last weekend,
even my white skinny jeans are intimidating me.

 So, here’s some much needed “thinspiration” from Uncle Karl!

What’s motivating you this weekend?

  1. I don't know if I needed to know it is national donut day. Morning sickness is pretty much a thing of the past and while I am not yet up to my pre-pregnancy weight…I will be soon as every mention of food seems to cause a craving these days! Have a great weekend!

  2. Actually, I like this quote from Karl, it's hilarious and true at the same time. I love the picture above. It reminds me of the burgers at Hotel Costes in Paris. Have a nice day;-)

  3. That quote & ad are hysterical. I'll have to pass on the donut since it's bathing suit season.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  10. What's motivating me is having enough energy to DO everything that I want to in my days! I try to eat nutritiously in order to fuel my brain and body, both of which are going full-blast most of the time. No donuts for me today, although I love a good French cruller once in a blue moon! And I do love McD's fries, as well. Now, if Mr. KL could just get them to change the packaging….! Have a wonderful weekend!

  16. I think this quote is very true! I have a ton of weddings this year so that's some inspiration, to look good in my dresses.

  17. I guess I'll be skipping the Big Mac for lunch today! Great to see this emotion (guilt) displayed so beautifully.

    When I look at Karl lately I can't help but think that he took his own words to the extreme! I am trying to shed the 14 pounds I put on at the holidays…. Still… And the words that always help me through it is the old saying "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels"…. I repeat this mantra over and over in my head while my boys eat their glazed donuts every week…. Hahahah

  25. Seriously, I never thought Memorial Day could be so hazardous to my waistline. It's a little ridiculous.

    Happy Donut Day!

    Oh-my-goodness, I love that quotation! Sooo true, too. I'm on day three of the South Beach Diet right now; doing it with a friend so we can keep ourselves motivated. 🙂 No carbs or sugar for the first two weeks is torturous, though!

  53. I went cold turkey on fast food, doughnuts etc about 15 years ago and don't miss them at all. All one has to do is break the addiction and then we are home free!

  61. Well said Uncle Karl. Isn't it great how Chanel looks good on everything including McD's
    Love your reader's comment that "nothing tastes as good as thin feels". I need some motivation right now for the bikini summer and that just might be it.
