As I sit at my desk, munching on some organic/gluten-free/fat-free/non-GMO twigs and berries, all the while secretly craving a donut, I am harshly reminded with every bland bite that my least-favorite time of year is in full swing again – pre-bikini season. April, for many, is spent trying to lose our winter weight before we have to lose our winter clothing and, if you’re anything like me (a lover of sugar and despiser of the StairMaster), that’s not always an easy feat to accomplish.
Thankfully, however, we are not alone in our struggle. Many GoComics characters are also on the quest for skinniness and they, unlike my twigs, make dieting much more entertaining!
Sarah’s Scribbles makes me feel much better about those potato chips that I cheated on my diet with yesterday.
Like me, Garfield would rather do just about anything than cut back on his lasagna intake.
Ink Pen proposed this innovative workout plan (where do I sign up?):
Adam showed me that, as someone who lives on the top floor of an apartment building and has to walk to the basement every time I need to do laundry, I’m getting more exercise than I ever realized! Talk about a day-maker!
Thin Lines reminds us that, despite what those daytime commercials say, there really is no miracle substitute for good, old-fashioned exercise (sadly).
So, in the end, no matter how much you may hate pre-bikini season, just know that you can always come to GoComics for a healthy dose of dieting humor to get you through. Your favorite comic characters and I feel your pain.
