Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Day 56

Posted by Edward Ernest | Oct 17, 2017 | Body Image, Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | 0 |

Today was a travel day, and I didn’t get my usual big step count, and this wasn’t a great sign after my eating binge.

The first thing I did when I got home from my trip was jump on the scale, and I did that before I ordered some dinner too. I’m no dummy. I only wanted to feel slightly inadequate, and I didn’t need the extra calories to make my day worse.

I ran up to the bathroom, pulled the scale to flat ground, which is tough, and I know you know what I mean. Then I ripped off all my clothes, including my Fitbit, then just before I stepped on the scale…….. I gave pause….. I thought, if you go to the bathroom right now, do you have a shit in you? I didn’t want to sit on the toilet busting a vein in my head for an hour just for this weigh in, yet at the same time, I really did want to take the time. I mean, I always do my best reading and thinking while on the toilet, which is one of the many reasons why I pee sitting down.

So I hopped into the bathroom and gave it a go. The good news was there was no vein busting needed; the bad news was that I only got out a pinch and had nothing left. Not even a fart.


Anyway, I cleaned up fast and walked to the scale like I was walking the plank…..And then, to my surprise, when I stood on the scale, the number 173 popped up. I couldn’t believe it. I was elated for a second and then thought it had to be wrong. I checked the scale again to see if it was on flat ground and it was, then hopped back on. And yet again, it told me that I was 173 pounds. Still, I didn’t believe after how poorly I ate in Florida and needed to do a triple check.

So I picked up the scale and took it downstairs to another piece of flat ground. I put the scale down, made sure it was level, then hopped on one more time.

And yet again, it stated that I was 173 pounds.

173 pounds!!!

I was ecstatic, shocked, surprised, every fucking synonym you want to throw out there, I was at that moment.

173 pounds motherfuckers!

I was on top of the world, and nothing was going to get me down.

And then I ate ordered fajitas with all the toppings, and it was glorious.

173!!!!! Boom.
