In which i’m sorta following


Remember I told you that I went on a diet 10 days ago? Of course you remember, I was starving to death and bitching and moaning about it.  Well, the initial period of starving to death four days was shortened to 3 due to the fact that I was starving to death and what the hell do you want from me.


So, I’ve been doing pretty well in my own sort of way for 10 days now.  I’ve lost 2 ½ pounds and while that’s not great, I’m not complaining. Well not really complaining.


I’ve been doing this with Keely, which is both good and bad, mostly bad.  Good because … well it’s good for her but she’s constantly giving me shit. Take yesterday for example:


Keely:             I’m not really losing weight on this diet

Me:                  it’s not that hard

Keely:             that’s because you’re not really following it

Me:                  yes I am

Keely:             you don’t do the breakfast right?

Me:                  ummmm…I have to have my protein shake

Keely:             and you don’t do the lunch right?

Me:                  I didn’t feel like their lunch

Keely:             and you’re planning on a frozen yogurt tonight?

Me:                  I miss my chocolate

Keely:             so you see mom, you’re totally not doing the diet

Me:                  yes I am

Keely:             how so?

Me:                  I’m really watching what I eat

Keely:             but not at all the “flat belly” way

Me:                  well, my belly feels much flatter

Keely:             you’ve only lost 2 ½ pounds

Me:                  I only wanna lose 5 before California

Keely:             you have no self discipline

Me:                  well, not much I grant you that

Keely:             I meanwhile, have been following it

Me:                  and

Keely:             and am not impressed

Me:                  maybe that’s cuz you’re not drinking enough water

Keely:             I have drunk so much water that I’m floating

Me:                  but not CUCUMBER water

Keely:             that was awful

Me:                  it was awful

Keely:             you quit making it

Me:                  because it was awful

Keely:             so you see mom, you are once again not really following what you think you are

Me:                  to me Keely, barely following is as good as following

Keely:             what?

Me:                  see you can’t even follow me


And there you are.  I’m dieting somewhat…eating better and all.  I really only wanna lose 10 pounds overall because I have no desire to be skinny anymore.  I just want to be comfortable in my clothes.  Whatever… I hate instructions and rules and directions and honestly, I do poorly with all of them.

    Uhhhh …. 2 1/2 pounds in ten days is good. One to two pounds a week is about all you can safely lose. More than that, and you’re just setting yourself up for bad health or else to gain it right back. I’m at fifteen pounds two months into my diet. Which ain’t half bad by my math. AND I HATE DIETS.
