I promised I would not succumb to vanity, so here you see what eating too much pie looks like. My belly was so bloated from a weekend-long pie binge, my friend Alison thought we should take before and after measurements. What you see is two inches added to my normal 31-inch waist. And this is BEFORE we cut into Alison’s blueberry crumble pie! (That’s her pie in my right hand.) Because I refuse to own a scale, I have no idea how many extra pounds this translates to. But however much weight I put on, every bite of strawberry pie, blueberry pie, and banana cream pie was worth it! Remember, it’s just fruit. Even so, it’s back to boot camp on the hiking trails I go.
