When I went to the clinic to begin my diet 12 days ago, I was weighed and my BMI was calculated. The practitioner wanted to record my goal weight which I immediately told her. Her response was, “Well, let’s see how you’re feeling at that weight to see if you want to reevaluate.” Meaning - maybe you should lose more weight than that.
I cannot stop thinking about this. Understand: My BMI before I even started the diet was in the “healthy” range. There is no health reason that I should be on this diet.
I’m a grown-ass woman and her comment fucked me up. Imagine hearing that from a person in a white coat when you’re 12 or 13 years old…
No wonder we’re so critical of ourselves.
I have two posts in my drafts folder about how much I wish we didn’t get a dog.
I love the dog. He’s a pain in my ass. Don’t get me started.
One of my favorite things right now is an ongoing group text between two of my besties and me. It’s kinda like Twitter only we’re the only ones reading it.
I haven’t had an adult beverage in almost two weeks because of the diet. I like it. I sleep better, I feel good when I wake up, I’m reading like crazy, and I get a buttload of stuff done.
Please don’t unfollow - it won’t last.
The ice machine at the bank where I’m working this week is broken. There is no ice.

This is the building where I’ll be working this week. I’m staying at a hotel that is part of this huge campus of office buildings, condos, hotels, and a cool “town square” with shops and restaurants and fancy gourmet bull shit. I took this when I was exercising this afternoon. Hope the weather holds up in Orlando so I can walk every day.
Probably not the best topics to post on a Saturday night but here goes:
I lost 4.6 lbs in 6 days, 3 lbs of it was FAT. So, yay. I’m hungry plus wired all the time so they switched my meds for this week. I’m cool with the 4.6 since my goal is to lose 15. It’s hard to do this diet on the road.
Tomorrow I’m going to Orlando. For some unknown reason I’m going in the morning at 10:45 - probably because it was cheaper than going later because God knows the shareholders of my firm need more money and $25 makes a difference.
The no-drinking thing (because diet - see 1st paragraph) combined with the speed (because meds - see 1st paragraph) has caused me to devour my reading material.. books, magazines, books, catalogs, books, etc. with a vengeance. Which is cool.
We’ve got to nail down a place for our Vegas wedding so I can do invitations. (Note: I did not say “invites”.) It’s going to be the Saturday after Thanksgiving so consider this your “Save the Date”. :) More to follow on that.
