Worth their weight in gold*

In conversation with girlfriends who also have 'weight issues':

CS: I don't really care about getting fit, all *I* want is to be thin!
Girlfriends in chorus: Oh gosh! Me too!

Conclusion: Growing old doesn't make us any wiser; it just makes us more honest about – and oddly, more accepting of – how shallow we are.

*Friends who have the same amount depth (or the lack of it) as you. :)

Considering that you actually GET UP in the morning and go is great! I'm equally shallow (read- desperate to lose weight) but I don't even try. And NEVER get up on time :(

oh you mean discussing weighty issues with girlfriends often - maybe over snacks (insert favorite ones here) - does not actually make one thin??!! omg, how can that be??!! :)

from: also shallow, who wishes she would not displace quite as much water ;)

Rachna: Oh I've only been going since this tactless girl at work thoughfully remarked how my 'butt is getting bigger with each passing day'.

Charmers I have in my office, I tell you. (Still, she got me going so maybe I should be thankful. Don't you just hate it when you have to be thankful to bitches?)

Mudra: Woman, that had better be a fellowship-of-the-shallow-women smile! :D

Anon urf Also Shallow: Honey, we drown our weight-sorrows in alcohol. Snacks come into the picture now and then, but why get only fat when you can get drunk and fat?

Ooo! That could totally be our motto!

Oh it is! Believe me it is! :D Awesome blog of yours, by the way, I don't remember if I've commented before.

Mudra: Oh my, thank you! *blushes fiercely*

And no, I don't think I've seen you around here before, so welcome!
And what will you be drinking? :D
