Whew! I just finished a marathon weeding session out in the garden. While I'm out there in that heat, I like to envision my fat melting off like a rasher of bacon on a skillet. It really the only way I can find it bearable to be out there for hours on end.
Speaking of fat, the doctor told my mother that she needed to lose weight. My mother is 87. Does there ever come a time in our lives when we can stop worrying about our weight?
On the subject of weight, either baseball players must lie about their weight or baseball uniforms are very unflattering.
Tomorrow I have to have some blood work done. The phlebotomist always feels that she must tell me that she has difficulty finding a vein. To be honest, I'd really rather not now this. And it makes me very self conscious of my forearms. Are the veins are buried deep under layers fat? I'm probably the only woman that even thinks about her forearms.
Everyone says they want to lose weight for their health. I'll admit I want to lose weight for vanity. If I could weigh five hundred pounds and be healthy and didn't care how I looked I would weigh five hundred pounds. But unfortunately, I do care about how I look and I like for my husband to find me attractive.
Tomorrow is the first of August. Hurray! I'll be glad to show this summer the back of the door. Been receiving all the fall catalogs. Can't wait to slip on a sweater again. If for no other reason than to wear long sleeves. Doughy arms are not meant for silly little fluffs like cap sleeves and we won't even bring up sleeveless tops. I wonder why manufactures make so many summer clothes with these sleeves? I've noticed that there aren't too many wonderful looking arms out there.
So now you are thinking, "What was the old girl thinking when she wrote this post?". Maybe it's the heat. Just wanted to stop in and tell you all the little shallow thoughts that were running through my mind today!
