Divorce, Dives, and Bad Decisions (206.4)

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

SO, I get my annual well woman appointment each year on my birthday so I can remember I have to do it. Last year I was 258 pounds and this year I am 206 pounds. If mine eyes doth not deceive me THEN I have lost 52 pounds in one year. I have also lost: one husband, one apartment, one printer, one mind, five dates, and three jobs.

If you had told me that the only success I would have found in the year 2013 was with weight loss, then I would have laughed in your face. As it is, I think now I would have cried in your face. Life hurts and extreme weight loss is small solace. Plus, as it turns out, at 206 pounds, I AM STILL A BIG GIRL. Who knew?

With the divorce I am thrust trembling into the awesome world of dating and I cannot seem to find anyone with teeth. Is this a reflection of my own lack of feelings of self-worth? Looks aren't everything but these guys are cheap and mean to boot. I refuse to go to online dating sites but now I think maybe I should. My second favorite sport is pool and the guys I am digging up at the pool hall should probably crawl on their bellies like reptiles back into the shallow end of the gene pool from whence they came. I console myself with the fact that my game is improving because they CAN indeed shoot pool and I am learning tips even as I degrade myself. Just the other night I ran three balls to the eight and did a perfect bank.

    52 pounds is so awesome...I am extremely jealous! lol

    I have been divorced...twice. And I am married now, about to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. I love him very much, but I do wish that I would have just taken time out for myself, and enjoyed my single life a little longer. I went from one marriage to another, with just a little dating in-between.

    Take time, enjoy this part of your life. The right man will come along naturally. But have the 'girl' time, like 'Sex in the City', and enjoy just hanging out with your friends. I sure wish I did.

    emoticon again on your emoticon weight loss for the year.

    So envious! emoticon

    It's pretty amazing that you've had this success with weight loss in spite of everything going on. Stress like that would make me pack on 50 pounds.

    I would say online dating sites might be worth a try. I know some folks who have had very good success going that route. It's still not easy, but it's something to try.

    There do tend to be some sketchy characters at some pool halls. But I have seen a few decent ones as well, is there another place nearby that you can try out instead? Different bar, different crowd. Maybe try out a new activity to meet a new crowd.

    Good work on the Weight loss you've had a good year in that department. Don't make it seem like less than it is by comparing it to the negative things. LEt it stand alone as a shining achievement.

    Keep up the good work, and don't worry the decent men with teeth are out there. (although I havn't found one yet either) If you find one ask if he has a brother!
