chapter four michelle returnsAfter storming out of the house, Michelle jumps in her car and drives off. She has no idea where she is going, she just starts driving. Chris is also out of town with basketball, so she can't even call him to get his comfort.
"What is she thinking, anyways! Trying to get me to pork up to motivate her to lose some of her excess flab. Why can't she just suck it up and find her own motivation if this is what she truly wants to do?"
"It sounds like she wants to lose weight and lead a more healthy lifestyle to save our family, but at the same time she can't find her own motivation. She wants to feed off my own motivation. I don't believe it, how can she expect that from me? She knows I like my body, other than my breasts and it would be nice to have a bit of curve in my ass, but no, I work hard to keep this figure. I can't imagine just letting myself go for a bit."
With all these thoughts going through her mind, Michelle heads to the local park for a run to try to clear it. While on her run, Michelle starts to think of what it would be like to not focus on all her workouts for a while.
"It does take a lot of work to keep my body in this condition. It would be nice to take a bit of a break from all of that, though. And, it has been forever since I have allowed myself to enjoy a slice of mom's apple pie. Maybe it couldn't hurt to add a few pounds. I am kind of jealous of Lisa's body, and the curves she has. Maybe, if I am lucky, the weight will land on my breasts and ass."
Michelle finishes her run and heads back home to discuss things with her mom.
Upon arriving home three hours after she left, Michelle heads up to her room to gather some last minute thoughts, taking note along the way that all that is left on the dining room table is a stack of empty plates. She strips down to her bra and panties and checks out her figure in her full-size mirror. "I can't believe I am actually considering going through with this. What is Chris going to think when he hears what I am about to do? What can he do, it is not like I am just going to let myself go and get fat permanently. It is only for a short length of time. I know I can always lose the weight after and get back down to my normal weight and maybe even a better body after." She talks herself into what might be the hardest decision so far in her life, gets dressed and heads down to talk with her mom.
Michelle finds her mom in the entertainment room watching TV with a large bag of chips and 2 litre bottle of coke beside her, both nearly empty.
"Mom, we need to talk."
Shawna turns the TV off and turns her attention to her daughter. "What is it, dear?"
"Mom, I've been thinking about what you had asked. I know I have been hard on you and dad for quite some time now over your lifestyles, and with you telling me that dad is turning away from you, I think it would be better for me to try to help rather than always criticize. If you really think that it would help you to lose some of your excess weight if I were with you on the journey losing weight alongside you, I guess it can't hurt me too much. I mean, actresses do the same thing for some of their roles all the time."
"Michelle, I have been thinking as well. I realized that I shouldn't have asked you to do something like this. You don't have to do this if you don't want to. I just have to find the motivation myself to get to a point where your father is attracted to me again. It is my own fault, and I have to take ownership of that and do what is right for me."
"Well mom, you can start by not eating so much junk food all the time, but, seriously, I don't want to see the family broken apart, and if me putting on a few pounds is the worst thing I can do to do my part in saving it, it is the least I can do."
"Are you sure you want to go through with this, honey?"
"Yes, mom. I have thought about it and I truly want to help you to achieve your goals and help you get healthier at the same time. It is something that I pride myself in doing, even helping Lisa and some of my friends now to be their best, I think I can help you as well. I am ready to go through with this."
