I went on the scale today.
I knew I'd been eating too much.
I always decide that I'll get away with it.
It won't show up.
Not this time.
My old body laughed at me.
I yelled at it .. the scale.
The old body, well, what can I say.
I used to be thin.
As a child.
Then, I had kids.
Never ever recovered from that.
Have always had forty or so to lose.
Every year I wish to be a certain weight.
At the time of year when you do those things.
I gave up doing that a while back.
Taking steroids will do that to you.
Give up on the losing thing.
Only for some reason, I thought,
that maybe it had gone down.
What a silly old lady I am.
The new jeans that I bought
fit though so that's a good thing.
I think I would have lost it.
You know how that goes.
The scale being mean
and the clothes follow.
So, I will now stop eating.
How do you do that ?
Me and the cats on diets.
Yes, even they need to lose a few.
Aren't you glad you're not at this house ?
By the way, I put the new jeans on to
go to the grocery store to get that pecan
pie that had winked at me the other day.
Nope, not happening.
OK, got to go .. Jodie Belle has been a
barking machine today and she's at it again.

The pecan pie is my favorite.
What's your delic pie or cake or ... ?
