Conversations with the Inner Brat – Weigh In After the Storm

It’s Weigh In Day.  Which of course means Olivia starts in the moment I woke up this morning.

Oooooh!  You’re going to get it!  You have to step on that scale today!

Yes, Olivia, I know. And by the way, we’re going to walk to the meeting.

WALK?  Are you nuts?  It’s cold! Really, really cold!

Not cold enough to stop us, Olivia.  Besides, the sun is shining! Isn’t it grand?

Yeahbut, last week you didn’t get any serious exercise except for Monday because of the ice and snow.  And you ‘indulged’ in a lot of treats.  Like Italian Wedding Soup.  And tortilla chips.  And beer!

I know, Olivia.  That’s why today we’re facing the music, embracing our defeat.  We’re stepping on that scale and moving on.

As we’re waiting in line…

Just tell the nice lady we don’t want to weigh in today.  Just to listen to Terri, share with everyone else and discuss the topic.

No, Olivia. I’m taking off my shoes right now.

[She Steps on the Scale.]

 Zero.  No loss, no gain.

     We’ll take it.

  1. Sounds like you have a good handle on olivia. Glad I'm not the only one with an inner brat who likes to talk back. No gain is always a good thing, congrats!Oh, and tortilla chips should be a food group of thier own. I'm such a softy when it comes to tortilla chips, especially if we have salsa.
