“I just ate less…among other things…” #111

“Be Careful What You Ask For…”

You know how it is when you’re driving your car…perhaps on a long trip and you get a little tired?

Or you’re coming home late at night from either a party or a late shift at work and your head starts to nod?


Well that is what “kind of” happened to me with my boring 138.6 weight.

For WEEKS my weight had remained the same…so, so boring…even though I had given up those beloved Hershey bars and was starting to walk on more days than not…

BUT this morning I got up and walked to the scale and it said:  (Actually it seemed to SHOUT!!)

139.4 !!!!!!

Let me tell you folks, I weighed myself about 15 times.  I adjusted the placement of the scale.  I stood on it backwards.  I held onto the counter and then slowly let go. I exhaled until I thought I was going to faint.

(It even occurred to me to jog around the living room a couple of times…but I realized in a swift moment of brilliance that doing so could possibly injure me…so I did not.)

NOTHING CHANGED.  STILL 139.4!!!!  What the fuck???

Of course this resulted in a thorough analysis of my life…took about 10 seconds.

This process resulted in the thought that maybe the homemade, delicious  chocolate chip cookie I ate  every morning was to blame.  (I’m actually looking at the cookie jar right now as we speak…)

Or maybe I have been putting just a “tad” more food on my plate the last couple of days…

I find this whole thing challenging and quite interesting and I am so on it…   Think Sherlock Holmes…with me as Dr. Watson…of course.

I will get back to you as soon as I get my “bumper repaired”…so to speak.

Have a nice day…

  1. Never take joy in eating. Eat well to be well and fit. And remember food is fuel for the body and a medicine against hunger and dis-ease.

    And I must follow my own advice to shed 70 lbs.

    Good luck to all dieters! Yes, we can go low! And don’t forget to exercise/pray/meditate too.
