Weight Issues: a reblog

Another fun poem contained herein about dieting.
Last four lines sum it up nicely.


Oh, this is such an everyday topic in the media. The latest is certain celebrities are up in arms as their names are being associated with a set of scales without their permission (read ‘can’t make a buck’) . The manufacturer’s idea is to calculate the total weight loss required in order for the user to be the same size as their idols (said celebrities) .
Note I say ‘size’ here. Shape is a totally different issue, but I don’t think people are thinking in that direction. Size obviously matters.

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Since I’ve bern in a wheelchair and my back continues to deteriorate, shrinking my posture into a middle zone, I’ve given up on calculating weights and heights and all the crap that goes with it. The self loathing, the comparisons, the diets, I’ve bern there and am not going back.

    • I’m sorry to read you’re in a wheelchair. I’m with you on the crap of heights and weight charts. Not conforming to a ‘tick list’ always put my back up and the second word was ‘….off ‘ to a GP who told me I needed to go on a diet of 300 calories a day when I left his office (and surgery for good). Now I am happy to be as I am. So what if I’m heavier than they say I should be? I’m 64, not 12!!
      I sincerely hope you are otherwise well in yourself?

    And had to get the flu and not eat the last five days to reach the goal. The bottom line is nothing in my life changed.
