Weighty matters

Ten minutes ago, I was elated: by finally deigning to use one of those infernal treadmills at my physiotherapist's, and noticing that it displayed weight, heart rate and time in flickering red LEDs, I found out I currently weigh in at 75 kg exactly. 75 kilos*! That means that over the summer, I've lost 15!

That was before I logged on to the web and calculated that my BMI is 26, which means that I'm still overweight. Apparently, there's another 15 to come off before I reach the ideal weight for my height. :(

* 75 kg= 165.3466966387 lb; 15 kg = 33.0693393277 lb

Will I even recognize you now?

I don't think you need worry about that. I'm sure that stood next to you in all your tall, slim perfection, I'll still be the short, dumpy one. ;-)

Seriously, though: I look at myself in the mirror, and I don't see that much of a change. I am slimmer, yes; but I'm still stocky and I always will be...and I'm alright with that.

What I'm not alright with, is that none of the clothes we've bought together fit anymore -- do you feel up to another shopping spree in the sales?

Sales, yes. Earlier - not so much. Feeling like it, oh yeah, but I need to work off a kind of huge shopaholic spree thing.

Hi, I'm B., and I'm a shopaholic. For real, yo.

Right. It's a date, then!

Next to that stork person you'll be the one on the fabulous high-heeled shoes....

Ah...but that may still take a while. I tried heels yesterday, because I'm childish and wanted to prove a point to my physiotherapist, but it wasn't a huge success. I barely lasted half an hour, and it felt really awkward...

Baby steps, eh? They'll get me there, eventually.
