I won't abandon you

I saw Charro today.  I'm supposed to have WIF on Friday and if I'm not 104.5 on her scale, then "we have to take a break."  I sent her an email last night telling her that I didn't think I'd be able to get there.  It was a short email, but I guess it was to the point because today she told me that she "would not 'fire' me, to use your words.  I got your email and don't want to abandon you.  I want to help you.  I will give you until November 17th to do this.  Do you think you can do this?"  

I thought that was really very nice of her.  She cares!  I mean, I know she cares, but this really showed it.  She's going to try weighing me in our regular office too, which means she has to get some wood and bring her scale.  The wood is to put the scale on because she has carpet in there.  If that doesn't work, we'll have to go into the bathroom together.  Woo hoo!!  So, the new WIF will be this Thursday.  We'll see how it goes.

I had WIF last Friday.  It didn't go well, but I expected that because my eating on vacation was not great.  That wasn't my fault.  I spent much of the time driving around to soccer games and practices.  Anyway, I have until next Friday to gain weight.  I may have lost more weight this week while I away on business, but I can't tell because my scale is all messed up.  Regardless, I have a lot of weight to gain before Friday and I'm pretty certain that I won't be the weight Charro says I need to be at.  She gave me good reasons why I need to be that weight, although I don't think it would make a difference in my life.  She said we're done if I'm not at that weight.  She said she was going to make me take everything out of my pockets.  Last week, my wallet and phone were in my sweatshirt pockets.  I wasn't trying to hide them from her and after she weighed me she said, "You have your phone and stuff in your pockets too." I said, "Yes, my phone and wallet."  She told me that all layers are coming off next week and that she was going to make me wear a robe.  I said, "I'm not wearing a robe" and she said, "I can't make you wear a robe anyway."  This is going to be fun!  I told her to have a box of tissues ready for when I cry for not making WIF.  She's certain I will make it, but she thinks I'm 2.5 lbs away.  I think I'm a lot more than that.  I wish my damn scale would work.  Yesterday it said I was 94 lbs, which I know is wrong.  That was the lowest number it gave me, but it gave me about 5 other numbers and they were all in a 4 pound range.  I think it got wet and messed up when our toilets overflowed a few weeks ago.  I was not here for that.  I guess we'll see what happens.  She said she could WIF me in our regular office, but I'd have to go into the hall by the elevator.  I told her that that is NOT happening.  I'll go to the stupid other office.  My other option was to go to my doctor, but I'm not doing that.  "Hi, I have an ED and need to get weighed."  No thanks.

How could I forget this.  Charro goes, "Why don't you ask your mom if she can sew some rocks into your pants?"  I said, "Ya so I can walk around looking like I have a load in my pants."  She said, "some people stick quarters up their...".  I told her that I would not be sticking anything up anything.  That's a lot of quarters!

WIF next Friday

Charro keeps pushing WIF.  So, next Friday we will have WIF.  I'm going away so she's like, "We need to WIF you when you get back."  Um, okay.  I said, "Good because I'm going to starve myself while I'm away."  (I was joking).  I did suggest that we have breakfast too, and she really liked that idea.  Of course I think it's a good idea because I'll be eating right before WIF. :)  There is a method to my madness.

Crap, I need to get some pants hemmed.  I bought them in March and have not gotten them shortened yet.  Ugh, I don't know why that's such a chore, but it is.  It's like taking off nail polish, it takes two seconds but for some reason it's hard to get me to do.

Sweaty HRM

I ran to my sesh with Charro on Monday.  Of course I wore my heart rate monitor.  I was sitting there talking and Charro says, "I can see your heart rate monitor."  I said, "Huh?"  She said "I can see it under your shirt."  Well, no  you can't because it's not under my shirt.  She said, "It's in your bag then."  I said, "Yep, you want it?"  I knew she wouldn't take it because it was sweaty and smelly.  I said, "It's sweaty and smelly.  You can have it."  She wouldn't take it.  HA!  I knew she wouldn't take it because it was gross, which is why I offered it up to her. :)

She brought me some pumpkin bread from Starbucks too.  That was my surprise snack.  It was fine, but my pumpkin bread is better. :)  She said, once again, that she's going to bring me whole milk to drink.  YUCK.  I don't know anyone over 12 who drinks milk.  We'll see when that happens.

WIF or doctor

The sun has not been out since last Monday.  Yuck!  We need rain, but it's not even raining, it's just damp and gloomy.

Charro is all of a sudden into weighing me again.  Last week she said how I'm going to have to come in for WIF soon.  She started to figure out dates and never mentioned this Friday, which is really the only Friday I'm here all month.  She said if I didn't want to come in for WIF I could call my doctor and have her fax my weight to her.  Um, that's NOT going to happen.  She didn't say I had to go get weighed again, just that she had to fax my weight to her.  I got weighed last month by her when I went for my physical so what good would that do?  Regardless, my doctor is not getting involved in this.  

I go on vacation next Friday.  I get back from that and go away for work for 4 days, so I don't think WIF will happen, or she'll forget that she wants to WIF me.  That could happen too. :)

I want some sunshine!
