Stuff Weight Losers Do and Say

No matter what industry, business or hobby you are into, there is always a vernacular that goes with it. For instance, if you work in retail and you have customer with a chip card, you tell them to "put it all the way in." You might hear this in a lot of other situations in which you wish you hadn't. Hey it sure beats "strip down, please."

There is also stuff we do. Some of it doesn't make sense. I used to get a small portion and then get seconds. Yup, I did that.

So here is my list of stuff for weight losers only.

- You poop before you weigh in - twice!
- You wear stretchy pants because you forgot how to read size tags.
- You eat salads for lunch everyday.
- If you have one mini candy bar, the bag needs to be taped to the outside of a window 60 floors up or it's gone.
- You say, I'm going for a run, but it's really to the liquor store.
- Your favorite part of Couch to 5K is the couch.
- You eat broccoli with your Everything Burger because it's healthier.
- A heaping teaspoon of peanut butter counts the same as a level one.
- You eat a donut and tell yourself "today will be better."
- You suck it in for your progress pictures.
- You save your best profanity for the scale.

Did I miss any?

Thanks for the votes and comments. Friend me at your own risk!

Health update: I spoke with the surgeon and he and I agreed that despite the latest news, I can wait until January. This is causing a change of plans. I will not running the Dublin Marathon. I have chosen to spend a week in California with my loved ones. The job front continues to be discouraging and I am seriously contemplating starting my own business. I mean, I have to eat, right? :)

So true and gave me a laugh as well. Hope your week in California goes smoothly, and starting your own business is stressful (speaking from experience here) but totally absorbing, exciting, challenging and rewarding. Do your research, think, get a business mentor and go for it! Prayers are with you.
