Butter, bacon, pork fat

Hot buttered popcorn. Homemade bread slathered with cold, fresh butter. Cheesecake. Potato chips. Fried zucchini. Just to name a few.

Gloria Gaynor spoke to me at the gym today. I am sure she wasn't thinking about all my favorite foods. I was though. I was pumping away on the elliptical and thought how perfect her lyrics described what I was thinking about my love for fatty foods.

Sing it sister!

At first I was afraid, I was petrified. I kept thinking I could never live without you by my side. But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong, and I grew strong! I learned how to get along.

Now go, walk out the door. Just turn around now cuz you're not welcome anymore. Weren't you the one that tried to hurt me with goodbye? You think I'd crumble? You think I'd lay down and die? Oh no not I. I will survive.

I've got all my life to live. It took all the strength I had not to fall apart, kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart and I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself I used to cry. Now I hold my head up high and you see me, somebody new. I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you and so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free but now I'm saving all my loving for someone who's loving me.

So, go away fatty food.

I love myself more than you.

My elliptical loves me more than you.

I don't need you any more.
