Why I have been MOOless?Posted: November 21, 2011
You may have noticed I’ve been a bit mooless for a few days. You may also notice that there was no major weightloss announcement last Friday. I am embarrassed to admit this but I skipped the meeting on Friday. I could say it was because I had to go to two Thanksgiving Feasts at the calves school. I could say that it was because I had to work and clean the house and pack all of us up for our 12 hour “Over the River and Thru the Woods” road trip to Grandma Bovine’s house. I could even say I overslept.
But you know what? It was none of those things. I skipped the meeting and haven’t blogged because I am embarrassed. I got on my own scale and I gained weight last week. 2 pounds. I did it because I ate too much. There was no big party, no major event, not even emotional trauma (unless you count the anticipation of being surrounded by my extended herd for the holiday as emotional trauma which in all honesty it just may be). It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I just ate like the bovine that I am.
I didn’t want to go to the meeting and face my Miraculously Melting neighbor (who is still miraculously melting). I didn’t want the gain recorded in my weight loss booklet. I didn’t want to write about it because it’s humiliating. I have no one to blame but My Inner Bovine.
I have not given up the weightloss bandwagon and I was even back on plan on Saturday and Sunday. During the 12 hour drive I ate apples and Special K cracker chips and didn’t even cheat at Dairy Queen (and if there is any place that is compelling to me, it’s Dairy Queen). And if I have to be completely honest, I figure if I have to record a weight gain at the next meeting, I can always blame Thanksgiving….
