Bummed out

Some sad news here.

First of all, I’ve been diagnosed as pre-diabetic.

Also, my blood pressure is intermittently high.

So there’s that.

Of course, instead of changing the medication I’m on which causes weight gain and all it’s lovely side effects, my doctors have opted to put me on a DIET.

I hate that word.

They’ve enrolled me in the most successful program they have – an 82 week MEAL REPLACEMENT plan.

Oh, don’t worry!

It’s not like I have to survive on shakes for 82 weeks.

No.

It’s only 4 FUCKING MONTHS OF MEAL REPLACEMENTS.

Then I get to start eating real food again.

Oy vey!

How am I going to do this?

Well, I’ll tell you one thing – I’m not going to try to do it over the holidays.

No.

That’s like setting myself up for failure.

I start on January 8th – the day my abstinence comes to a close.

Wouldn’t you know it?

Go off one diet, start another!

The other sad news I have is that I’ve been passed over for a promotion in my department.

I’m rather bummed because I felt that the position was PERFECT for me and would provide me with new challenges and opportunities to excel in my work.

Sadly, that is not the case.

So needless to say with all this bad news, I’m a little sad.

Bummed out, so to speak.

If you’re inclined, send a kind thought my way.

I could sure use them!

  1. Positive thoughts to yoy. Your blog is great and I’m sure you will enjoy experience of finding new and interesting foods after the first part. Good luck with the second half of your abstinence and good luck with the new challenge!!!

  2. I am definitely sending good thoughts your way.
    If you can do sexual abstinence, you can do food. I understand that saying that is easier than it sounds, but those were your words for the period of celibacy you have embarked on.
    So, basically, You got this.
    As for work. Bummer for sure, but don’t let it get you down. There is an opportunity out there for you and it will reveal itself soon. I believe it.
