Share Your World 1-27-2020

Melanie is our hostess for the Share Your World questions.
Check it out here:

QUESTIONS:

1.  What age would you like to live to?
I don’t want to put a number on it, but once the faculties start to go, I become a burden and I can’t do the simplest things for myself, then I hope my departure from this life to the next isn’t too drawn out. I’m in no hurry though.

2.  What mystery do you wish you knew the answer to?
How people can eat anything and everything they want without repercussions!

3.  Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?
Definitely (and yes I read David Baldacci’s book as well as saw the film).
Those in power CGAF about the less fortunate, and the more power they have over those lives, the more they want to squash them. I would love for the tables to be turned.

4.  What outdoor activity haven’t you tried, but would like to?
Gliding. Would love to be up there with the birds.

GRATITUDE SECTION (Not mandatory)
I’ve only gained a pound in the two weeks since starting my new meds, so I am well pleased with that as I am still within my target parameters.
(Time to get back on the diet programme to lose it though and a few of its chums!)

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Curious me – read your answers to a fun share about your life. After a few I figured out the meaning of the acronym in answer #3 – gliding would be fun (don’t look down) and the bonus question’s picture so cute. 🙂 I discovered last week why it’s suggested one place a scale on a flat surface. I put mine on the carpet and it read a huge loss – weighed in at 113 which is my early teens. (if only)

    • I’ve got a good picture where you lie on your back with your feet in the air and the scales are balanced on top. I’ve used it a lot in my blog as I have quite a few funnies as I battle the bulges! My scales are in the bathroom which has a lino floor and my weight on those is pretty constant. I weigh myself in the morning, but weigh in at group is at 6pm so I’ve had all day to wait (or should I say weight? LOL)! Starving myself doesn’t work either, so I’m just careful and try to be aware of what I’m eating. It’s been hard these past few months but I’m getting back into it (I think!)

      • What a visual 🙂 My old scale in the bathroom is ready for the dumpster. It reads Errr even with new batteries thus the new scale awaits. I did remove it from its’ box and placed it on the carpet. 🙂 Morning seems to be the best time for weigh-ins. Once a gal at Weight Watchers came in wearing a bikini under her coat in order to meet her goal weight. Imagine! When one gets older ‘yes’ tis hard to lose and maintain especially if there is need for meds. You sound determined with a positive attitude (a plus).

      • I hit my target in August last year and have stayed within the 6 pound boundary since except once when I dipped under by a couple of pounds. I’m almost at the top of the bracket this week so have to go back on the strict plan (I can eat loads though) and lose some. I confess I wear the same clothes, which are lightweight. Me in a bikini would frighten everyone away!!!

      • You have done well. I get close to target and I start to sabotage the plan so have to re-start – schedule more exercise and measure – measure. Your last sentence – a funny.

      • My exercise (walking the dog) went for a bucket of chalk after my surgery, but the little scales are out and I shall be weighing what I should be and not guessing, no more biscuits, and plenty of veg.

    I too am fighting the battle of the bulge! I wonder if I will ever stop doing it.

  4. Thank you Di for Sharing Your World! I got the acronym to the corruptable power question, and wondered if it should be “Don’t GAF”. All I could think of was “Can’t GAF?” Just me and the threads I tend to ravel… O_o I’m glad to hear of your weight maintenance. In the day when I used to diet (gave it up one year because of frustration and just never looked back. Respect to you!) the most often said ‘rule’ was that true weight loss is when you keep it off like you have. Congratulations!
