It’s been 4 months since my last…confession? HaHa. No just a blog post. I guess this is like a confessional. It’s a means to expunge my brain of its constant chatter.
In keeping up with my weight loss progress, I am still struggling yet still persevering. It has taken these past four months to lose 10 pounds. I now weigh 208 pounds and have 32 more pounds to reach my 200 pound weight loss goal.
The past month had a 4 pound gain. I was devastated. I actually broke down and cried at the weight loss center and then had a nice little panic attack. Hyperventilating and all. This was a week ago. I managed to pull myself together and went back to the weight loss center to strategize the best way to get the downward trend going again. I have lost 1 pound this past week. Not really cartwheel inducing, but hey it’s something.
My body has decided it likes itself the way it is. I am not satisfied, so we are at odds with each other. I no longer see the difference in my body from when I started, except my boobs are smaller. Those were the best things I had going before. My nice plump D cups are now tennis ball in sock B’s. Thank the stars for push up bras. I know my clothing sizes have gone down considerably. Yet I see the bulges that I still have and want gone.
I will not give up and I will continue with proper nutrition and exercise.
I am going back to my running. I really felt like that had more positive impact on my body shape than any of the other exercising I have been doing. That viewpoint may not be the most popular in the current exercise trend of strength training versus aerobic exercise. So once again, I am not part of the popular crowd. I am more comfortable that way anyhow. Introverts Unite.
Enough of my indulgence in talking about myself. There are more important things going on in this world.
Like this ridiculous 2016 presidential election.
We have a female candidate who maybe a criminal married to an adulterer who publically humiliated her in the most public house of this country. Instead of progressing women’s lib by leaving him and standing on her own two feet. She stayed with him for the political gain.
Then we have a male candidate that is a misogynist pig who will say anything that comes to his mind and not accept any responsibility for his actions nor accept criticism, constructive or otherwise. He is the biggest bully in the world, not even the most infamous dictators compare…maybe Hitler does. He is married to a woman that announced she plans to fight bullying as her first lady platform. I am sure someone told her to say that, after all she has been nothing but a talking parrot including a plagiarized speech from the current FLOTUS.
Will any future elections be better? Will there ever be candidates who are decent human beings? Either Left Wing or Right Wing, Conservative or Liberal we deserve worthwhile candidates to represent our country to the world and set a leadership role for our government.
As a member of Generation X, I hate to say this but just maybe the Millennials can get it right. They seem to have a handle on playing fair. Everyone gets a trophy.
I do not have any trophies and I certainly don’t have a choice when it comes to voting for President in 2016. Maybe I will write in Claire Fraser with her running mate of James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser.
