Coinage

moi gras (mw gr): n. Any occasion when one feels particularly fat, such as when one cannot fit into a favorite pair of pants, or when a previously cute top currently gives one the appearance of a stuffed sausage. Moi gras often leads to declarations of a return to the gym and/or the swearing off of desserts or other calorie-laden foods. In the alternative, moi gras can lead to binge-eating during particular circumstances such as vacations, breakups, or hanging out with girlfriends, or on condition of dieting immediately after such eating. In such cases as these, moi gras may be accompanied by vin gras, the heavy intake of wine or other alcohol.

[French : moi, me + gras, fat]
