It’s time to weigh in on the weight loss challenge. Everyone has pretty much gone off their diets and then come back on it, only to go off them again. Twelve-year old Pumpkin has a goal to gain weight. She wants to weigh 250 pounds – I know she is 12 and therefore obnoxious, but I really can’t tell if she is joking.
She has gained 6 pounds so she is on her way to realizing that goal, June is not pleased with the goal. Pumpkin then goes on to say she also plans to have her butthole pierced. OK, I love this kid! I also love June’s reaction to the piercing announcement:
Jessica has lost 3 pounds. She doesn’t like being fat and is petulant about her lack of success. June lost 1.6 pounds overall and considers it a start. As a reward for the “hard work” they put into losing weight, June decides to take them to the water park in Statesboro.
Thoughts of June in a bathing suit swarm my head and I wonder if I can actually take it. But, I will say this for June, she is aware of her size and doesn’t subject us to any inappropriate swim wear. And she keeps her socks on even while in the water.
Alana says that her life jacket makes her look like a chunky lemon, and June immediately responds that it makes her look beautiful. I love this family! I get the health concerns with the family’s weight. I truly do. But, I love that June still encourages them to feel good about themselves no matter what size they are.
The official spokesperson for healthy body image!
The family has a great time in the water and on the water slides. Chubbs wants to go down the largest slide and June forbids it. The girls make a deal with June. If she will show them her forklift foot, they won’t go down the slide. June doesn’t want to show it – explaining again that she is embarrassed by it. But, she eventually does.
Since I’m not showing the picture, I will describe it for you. It looks like an ingrown toenail with black streaks around it. And, for some reason, gnats are buzzing around it. I’m not sure why there are suddenly gnats since there weren’t any buzzing around her sock, and I’m sure there weren’t any IN her sock when she pulled it off.
Anyway, everyone heads home relaxed and ready to focus on the Rockstar Pageant. June gives Alana a spray tan and Alana reminds her to make sure she gets under the fat roll. And, we get our first actual on air fart of the season when Alana lets one rip and is shocked at how bad it smells. Then, she announces that she has to go poo poo.
