Controlling the Beast that Eats [Mar. 22nd, 2011|11:13 am]
terribleturnip
So, I've managed to lose 6 pounds over the last several weeks. That is, I consider those 6 pounds pretty much gone -- I've technically speaking lost more, but gained back, then lost -- but the minus six seems to be where I wind up.

(Am I the only person whose weight will vary as much as four pounds from morning until night? That goes to show you how much of my body is made of Diet Mountain Dew I suppose.)

(Oh, and that was NOT a request to hear about your bowel movements. Jeezus. Please, for the love of all that's holey, consider that a rhetorical questions.)

(Yes, holey on purpose. Because I care nothing for God, but certainly love swiss cheese, doughnuts, and those sweatpants that are broken in juuuuust right.)

Anyway -- today was weigh-in day at work and I celebrated the 5% loss in body weight by eating an entire package of pink peeps. Because, Self-Sabotage, I am your EMPRESS. Sigh.

nope ... and the odd part about it from my perspective is it doesn't seem to matter what I eat or drink, the weight difference still happens

I'm currently a comfy 195 ... my doctor wants me back to the 175 I was when I first went to that office right out of the Air Force .. I chalk that up as an amusing, but not serious, goal

Doctors really have a fetish about weight. It's pretty ridiculous. Yes, obesity causes a lot of health problems, but that's being overweight by 50 pounds or more... not 20. Give me a break.

I only weigh once a day at the same time each day. That means I get the dubious pleasure of starving myself and watching the scale not move.

Self Sabotage:

1) find out that a position you designed has been given to someone outside of the company
2) further discover said person will need to be trained by you in order to supervise you
3) go buy pack of cigarettes and lighter

It was either that or storm out in a blaze of glory. I figure the smokes are cheaper and frankly I'm worth more dead than alive at the moment (always subject to change)
