Wait... loss?

Sometime last year I was told that people who weigh over 100kgs would definately have some sort of a sleeping disorder. Being that I was tired all the time and tipped the scales at just over that mark, I thought perhaps I should do something about it.

So, I changed my diet. Cut out all the bad things. I really couldn't be bothered with excercise though (other than the 10mins walk to and from work, including walking home for lunch and back afterwards each day). I wasn't out to be an athlete here, just to be healthy.

I monitored my progress over about 2 months, and my weight somehow managed to increase. So I gave up.

I stayed with my parents this weekend and noticed the scales on their bathroom floor. I hadn't checked the weight for at least 6 months, but it never changed, so why would it this time?

It did change. Somewhere, somehow, 12 kilograms disappeared. I checked three times over the weekend. Gone.

There is so much loss in my weight loss tale.

I'm at a loss to explain how those kilograms disappeared.
I discussed this with mum, and I thought chances are I have a terminal illness. Those guys lose weight for no reason all the time. Her theory was that if I had a terminal illness, I would probably be ill. She had a point.

I'm at a loss to explain why the kilograms stayed with me when I was eating healthy.
I don't even have a theory on that one.

I'm at a loss to explain where exactly the kilograms disappeared from
The face and stomach all still look the same. The only thing I'm thinking is it's disappeared from my legs because they do all the hard work holding the rest of me up. *Sigh* If I lose another twelve kilograms I won't be able to make those jokes any more, and that would be society's loss.


  1. It disappered because- you cared less. When you pay too much attention on something- you tend to screw it up!

    Tha is what my logic says! So forget weight and it will stop showing! :)

  2. I'm jealous you get to walk to and from work...AND you walk home for lunch!

    Maybe it's your stanky leg?

  3. yourstruly100 - That's what I thought to. Like an annoying bully- if you ignore them, they will go away.

    Stephanie- It could be my stanky leg. Who knows? I like the theory though. The stanky leg is a wonderful thing.

  4. I want to lose weight without doing anything too! this is so unfair :P
    terminal illness? wtf! shutit Scon!
    I'll fly to Australia just to kick your butt!

  5. You wouldn't kick my butt. I would hide behind a wall of koalas and you would never risk harming a koala.

  6. Ok so you have to figure out how you lost all that weight and tell me so I can follow suit. I keep getting stupid comments from old aunts about how pretty I'd look if I just lost a little weight.. which pretty much means I look a tad ugly now but watevs. Doing nothing and shutting them up works very well for me :)

  7. EcK - Diet coke? No thanks

    Endless Randomness- If I work out what the secret is, I'll let you know. But who cares what aunts thing anyway? It's their job to critisize.
