My sister's a stick!!

So my sister weighs two fucking pounds!! How am I doing with that one?? Just wonderful. She is so skinny. It's NOT fair. It's so NOT fair. This is gonna be great. I can't deal!! I almost died when I saw her. The very first thing out of my mouth to her was "Your legs are like sticks!! UGH!!

My nephews, I love them SOO much!!

Dear PalmTreeChick,

b)Fight the thoughts.
c)Careful with comments.
d)Your reaction makes me think this is a new development, at least since you went to Europe.
e)A lot of people lose weight during marital turbulence. This is generally not a positive thing.
f)Fight the thoughts.

With care....

I think it has more to do with the fact that she walked around a ton, since moving there, and didn't really like any of the food.

ania said...

Oh, okay.

That's a long time to go without finding food that you care for. I guess she doesn't like to cook?

How are your nephews?

With warmth....

Palmtreechick said...

No, she actually does like to cook and cooked a lot before they moved, she just didn't know what things were there so she didn't know what to buy to cook. Maybe she didn't feel like it either, who knows.

dude, don't forget there's a genetic component to these things and she may very well have the same sort of thoughts banging around in her head that you have.

Palmtreechick said...

Maybe, but I think it's because she lived in Amsterdam for 6 months, hated the food and did much more walking than she ever did. Oh, her divorce probably isn't helping either, though she's the dumb ass who wants it.

Dear PalmTreeChick,

Wow, you sound so aggravated. You and your sister seem very different (especially after reading the recent post).

How much time are you planning to spend at the family home during this month? Do you think it'll be less than you'd originally planned? Or the same?

How are your nephews doing? I really am interested.

Do you ever think about coaching a kid's [something] team?

What a great many questions. You know that as always you can take them or leave them.

Please take care, okay?

With warmth and encouragement....

I am, Ania.
I only plan on spending a few days here with my family. My brother in law will be here as well. It will be maybe a few hours less than I planned.

My nephews are great. They don't know what's going on with my sister. I just had the little one go get my a drink. I thought that was pretty funny. I said "I got you a drink so you should be able to get me one." I just wanted to see what he'd so.

I coached field hockey for 5 years, up until I moved. This was my first season not coaching.

Is it wrong that I'd like to starve myself to be thinner than my sis?

ania said...

Ah, PalmTreeChick.

Wrong? Well, it's worrying. It's an indication that you categorize starving as a possible option. I hope you can make a different choice than further restricting your already strict intake. It only takes one choice to get sucked in. Really. You know that. You also know that you have a better chance if you never start one, than if you start hoping to stop when you're 'done'.

I'm glad that your nephews are doing well. How old is the little one? That's cute about sending him to get you a drink. A few times, I've teased Little Miss that she needed to pick me up.

I remembered you coached, but couldn't remember the age range. I imagine that you would be super-fun.

Oh, my girl - please, fight more unhealthy behaviours while you can.

With care and encouragement....

Hey Ania, they are 4 1/2 and 6 1/2. They are the cutest things and I just want to eat them up. The little one is sleeping in my bed with me and last night I had feet in my face all night. That was fun.

I coached 7th and 8th grade for 2 years and then freshmen in high school for 3.

Funny, the past few weeks I was trying to go in the "right" direction and now I don't want to try any more.
