The Story Of Trying To Eat Healthier Told By Doug The Pug

Really though, this dog is all of us.

Posted on

It was a cold Wednesday afternoon when Doug was sitting in grass thinking about life. He just wasn't happy with how he looked and it was affecting his everyday life a lot.

He came home and decided to start eating healthier as of next Monday. It was the right thing to do. Summer is around the corner and he needed to get in shape.

Of course he had to make sure he indulges in all his favorite foods one more time.

One more time pizza before Monday. The last bite of it was the hardest goodbye he had ever said.

And then Monday had arrived. And he tried eating healthier.

Like, he'd put all this healthy green stuff on his food.

And he felt alright for a couple of days.

But then the reality of missing all the good food hit him.

And he'd feel miserable in the mornings.

He'd cry in the shower every morning remembering that he can't have pancakes for breakfast.

Actually he'd feel miserable all day. All he would think about at work was food.

And his friends always eating unhealthy stuff around him didn't help either.

Sometimes he'd cheat and have a piece of their food while they weren't looking. Those moments were what was holding him together.

But just one bite never felt enough. He was still barely keeping it together.

Doug would go home and just stare at the Nutella jar trying his best not to give up and spoon the whole thing.

He would go to sleep and have nightmares about giant pieces of cake crushing him. Now that he thinks of it, maybe those weren't nightmares after all. Maybe those were blessings.

He would get invited to brunch but all he could do is stare (and cry on the inside).

Like, he would have to just sit there REALLY close to the one and only love of his life, yet he wasn't supposed to hit on her?

He had never felt as empty and lonely in his life as he did in those moments.

So eventually Doug caved in. Nobody is that strong.

And Doug's life was all rainbows and smiles again.

He could surround himself with all of his favorite things and he felt at peace.

He could fall asleep with ease now because the hunger was gone.

Instagram: @itsdougthepug / Via instagram.com

Doug was in his happy place and it felt so damn good.

Plus, he knew that there's always next Monday when he can try again.
