My weight this morning.
To be honest, I don't recall this weight or the last time I weighed it...I remember 179, the next time I stepped on a scale it read 190.
This was the great gray area between, "I'm okay" and "oh gosh, I'm 10 lbs away from 200".
I weighed 190 in october 2000 when I got pregnant with my sophie...so, Approximately 9 years and a few months. I weighed 179 in Germany in 1998.
I am about 46 lbs from a normal bmi. 48 lbs from the weight I was when I met my husband in the military. I have lost 76.4 lbs.
I have never lost this amount of weight, and still felt this committed, ever.
I have a little story for those of you wondering if this whole weight loss thing is worth the effort.
I went to fedex kinkos today.
I have been in there many times, today I went in a new outfit.
I looked pretty good...looking thinner even than a 16 would suggest.
I love black pants.
I walk in, and lo and behold some dude comes out from behind the desk and comes over...
I hadn't even set my purse down...
I hadn't even picked a machine.
He goes, Ma'am can I help you? You look confused.
(I am not confused...i have made copies many many many times before...in fact, I always do it in this establishment...in fact the first time I came in I waited at the counter for ten to twenty minutes for some help. that was nearly 80 lbs ago)
I say I was just going to make some copies.
! He takes my one lousy piece of paper and says "Let me show you how to do that the easy way!
He putsit on the top of the copier and proceeds to 'show' me.
Then he says "So, what are making copies for?"
I sat Girls scouts.
He says "I used to lead a boy scout troop, those kids are something aren't they?
I'm all like 'Yeah, they are.'
Then he says "Do you do a lot of copying?" I say "quite a bit".
He says "I miss doing scouts, have you been a leader long...."
I let that lie there, cause he is smiling and acting very friendly.
He says "would you like to know how to get a receipt"
(as I get the seven copies we just copied)
He goes and takes my card, and gets me a receipt...for .56 cents.
I said, wow...I didn't know you can do that.
He goes, yeah..alot of people don't know that
(and he hitches his pants up o.O..then says, maybe you can use it for tax purposes)
Then he walks me to the door, and said 'have a great day, hope to see you again)
I have been in that fed ex kinkos at least 20 times.
No, I was not the only person in there.
No, I did not have a large purchase.
That DUDE WAS FLIRTING with me.
Touching my arm and the whole nine yards.
I don't even know what to do when that happens.
When I was really fat, I had to hunt people down.
This is the second time i have had a noticeable difference in service, you will recall the geek squad incident.
The world, fellow bloggers, can be a cold and shallow place.
I still remember standing there while I was completely ignored.
Granted, I don't remember the people involved....but I have never in the last ten years of my existence been treated that way over a 56 cent purchase.
If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and swims like a duck...it's a duck.
That being said, I have a lovely husband....
Good to see you.
Hate to be going...but 179 is waiting.
Have a great night.
