Four Inches

Monday, July 22, 2013

No, it's not a punch line. My employer does annual "metabolic testing" which is a rather quick procedure--they get your blood pressure, weight, height, and cholesterol and measure your waist---which as we know is a "dangerous" place to have inches.

My waist is still not great but it is 4 inches less than it was 11 months ago. And for perhaps the first time in some 25 years my waist has fewer inches than my hips!

I have been a perfect oblong or rectangle with bust, waist, and hips all at the same unflattering number. They are now three different numbers! Could this be the beginning of a figure?

My employer takes these measurements which are not mandatory but which take $15.00 for an individual or $30.00 for a family off the monthly health insurance payment. I know it is a big Big Brother but you would get the $30.00 off per month even if you had an 80 inch waist. Of course they raise the rates so often, that one can smell many many rats!
