Weighin' In

I was hoping Wyatt would ignore that I hadn't posted my weight yet, today. No such luck. I gained three pounds. It isn't necessarily food consumption; it is my body's kick-arse ability to retain fluid that has caused the gain. I tried standing while I waited for my friend to meet me for dinner, but my legs could only handle a half an hour (which is better than feeling the burn after 20 minutes last month). So, I sat all through school and sat until I got home at around 11:00 p.m. last night.

I'm trying to walk more and eat more fluid based foods so that I can work on the retaining issue. Overall, it is caused by a wonky thyroid...one of the symptoms. I am just trying to learn to work with this bad-boy.

I looked in the mirror today, after I weighed myself. (Don't worry, I was dressed and it was from the neck up.) I turned into Stuart Smalley and told myself, "Don't get down about it, you will lose ALL of the weight, eventually. Just keep working at it." At least I keep trying.

Did you just reference Al Frakkin' Franken on your blog???!!!

RT said...

I know. It made me want to hurl--good for the diet, though. HA!

I'll probably get Frankenstrolls, now. They have coodies. I hate coodies.

WOW.

Al Franken; You need some long, long overdue R & R.

At least it was you body this time and not your fork (Usually my case it is the fork and spoon filled with bad stuff.)

Yeah, I'm just tired of being fat and alone. It sucks. I'm kind of hating food these days. It is a good thing. I eat because I have to, not because I really see it as a social mechanism anymore.

Keep on trying, RT, I know you can do it. Look how far you've gotten so far! You lost 65 pounds before this challenge even started. You are the clear winner to me based on that - it is a big accomplishment.

All I can do is try. I can't just magically make it all go away (no matter how much I'd like it to).
