Senryu : plump

Twiggy was a stick
No ambition to be her
I’d settle for plump

senryu by M. LaFreniere

Not happy with myself today.  I’ve been good about losing weight.  Hit 215.3.  But … ate a pizza today and it jumped up to 219.9.  How does that even happen?  Yes, it was a pizza and yes I ate the whole 11 inches but the damn thing didn’t even weigh a pound so how did it convert into 4?  There is something wrong with the physics of eating.

I made this a couple of days ago — still feeling proud.  I figure by morning, the pizza will be pooped out and I will be on my way again.  Was it worth it?  ummmm… It’s worth a pound, maybe two … but four?   I still thinks there is something wrong with the math when the weight you gain is four times the weight of the food.  I think somebody upstairs has an extremely warped sense of humor.

October 9, 2018 update:  Well, I’m back down to 217! Yay! So it was only a one day blip.  I’ll have to stay away from the salties.
