Am I in the Fun House??

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Still no movement on the scale! This is super annoying, especially considering its nasty attitude. Crouching there, sneering at me as I slowly approach, removing everything that might weigh an extra ounce. And that evil chuckle as I step sadly off, disappointed again.

Even worse, since I've been stuck in the same place so long, I'm beginning to notice other things that are also making me grumpy. As long as the scale was slowly receding down past the little numbers, I was excited, and pleased with myself. Now that there is no downward movement to celebrate, I have found other things to be critical of. For instance, why did I have to lose first in my face? People come up to me and ask, "Have you been sick, honey?" Really, is that supposed to be encouraging? And why has my bust decreased? That just makes that spare tire around my middle even more noticeable!! Whose bright idea was that, Mother Nature??

And another thing; if this keeps up, I won't have to wear an apron when working in the kitchen....I have my own homegrown one always there, if you get my drift. It's hard enough to stay positive while waiting for that blasted needle to move. It's just more than flesh and blood can bear to feel like I'm looking like one of those fun house mirrors that make parts of you expand and contract in weird ways!

I tell you, it makes me long for the good old days when I had knobby knees and elbows and ran everywhere because walking was too slow! Of course, I was only a kid then. Not a grumpy grammy with a stubborn scale. Oh well, at least that evil little needle hasn't moved back up any. That would be a real reason to be grumpy! So back to business, nose to the grindstone. I will not eat a pound of dark chocolate, or a can of cashews. I will munch on some celery and be thankful for small blessings!

    I'm so sorry that your scale is not moving and that you are so disappointed, but by the same token I laughed through your entire blog!! Please don't get me wrong, I take your predicament very seriously but you are just so funny and have such a way with words!! With that being said, how can good things not happen to a strong woman who is so determined and wants to be successful? I don't think you are a grumpy grandma. Hang tough and stay on track and I promise you good things will happen. PS promise me that you will eat more than celery! Enjoy the holiday celebration... all things good in moderation emoticon emoticon

    Sorry to hear about a death in your church. I have been to some really sad ones and some really joyous ones. One difference in the two - we rejoice with the loved ones of those whose names is written in the Lamb's Book of LIfe.
Have a great Easter! emoticon
