I was scrolling through my Instagram and came across this highly relatable and dead honest post by Gayle King, photo above. I also have janky toenails and none of my pants are fitting but I am too scared to post a photo of either my scale or feet, so kudos to her for doing both at the same time. It’s a slideshow where she showed the progression of her weight gain and toenails growing out. I can’t believe she takes photos of her scale! I write it down but it would never occur to me to take a picture of it.
CRISIS! The weight struggle is real! fatter than I’ve been in long time .. & scared to get a pedicure (big sigh) swipe left for the way we were …ideal weight says Dr is 163… not happening anytime soon .. blaming corona quarantine & Halloween candy corns I just bought ! Make it stop!
I doubly relate to her as I have also been mainlining candy (and ice cream). Last week I bought a bag of harvest mix (it was Brach’s, all other brands suck) and a bad of Jelly Bellies and I ate both of them within two days. This is what happens when I go to CVS for something I “need” and just have to pass through the candy aisle. There’s so much stress lately that it’s hard to know what else to do. I do exercise and try to do my favorite things, but it’s hard in this lead-up to the election when we’re stuck at home. I’ll eat healthy-ish one day and the next day half of everything I eat is garbage. I recently ordered some CBD oil though and that seems to be helping a bit.
Anyway I feel you Gayle, hang in there and you do your thing. We’re in this together and I pray we have good news and systemic change coming soon. I’m not going to beat myself up the next time I eat a ton of candy. Halloween is coming up and we’re anxious about dying and the election, we all get a pass.
OOh I forgot that Gayle has a show on Sirius. It’s a call in show and airs Thursdays from 5 to 6pm EST on channel 109. I’m going to listen to that.
