Seriously? ~ Mountain Mama

At the risk of revealing another psychosis but in hopes that someone out there will identify...

When you, as a woman, are sick, flat on your back and incapable of providing any form of care giving to yourself or your loved ones, there is one thought that you cling to. One thought that prevents you from actually wishing your body would just give up:

"I'm probably losing weight right now."

And even though you know that you will gain it all back the first day your body decides six servings of Stouffer's macaroni and cheese makes a fine meal, you have that one day when you finally feel good enough to go out in public and you wear your skinny jeans. Because they fit.

I woke up this morning thinking today was that day. Then I stepped on the scale, slithered back into bed, curled into a fetal position and sucked my thumb.

Because it is so unfair that I can spend four days eating nothing but the graham crackers necessary to keep my medicine down and still not lose a pound.

I'm so mad I could eat six servings of Stouffer's macaroni and cheese.

    its because we are old...booo...glad you are feeling better!!

  2. I'm glad you're feeling better too!

    I wish laughing my a$$ off really worked. Your entry cracked me up! :)

  3. I understand! When I was pregnant with my first son they thought I had Colitis so they wouldn't let me eat any solid food for two weeks in the hospital - just and IV with "healthy stuff" well - I could NOT fit into the jeans I wore to the hopital - and that was the beginning of my eating 63 pounds to 9 months of pregnancy to a son who decided to weigh 10 pounds and was due on 4/8 and pop out via c-section on 4/25!!! P.S. he's 31 now and getting married 12/5 and I'm still trying to lose weight on a daily basis!!! Glad you're feeling better - ice cream helps me when I'm sick :) jennsthreegraces@blogspot
