“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?

AND THEN YOU HIT A CEMENT WALL?

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.
