Scale Addiction And The Addict It Controls

Day 9 - 2Week Atkins Induction - Owning Unsuccessful Behaviors, The First Step Toward Change 

Spicy Zucchini Hash, Fried Egg and Turkey Pan Sausage
Hello, my name is SusieT, and I’m an addict.

They say the first step is admitting you have an addiction. “They” say that confession frees the soul and mind. They say the first step will lead to more steps.

Well, I'm here because I'm an addict.

The scale owns me. Except my soul. That’s firmly in our Lord’s control. But I’m pretty sure the rest of me owes my behonkus to the scale.

I am the scale's little bitch.

My moods, commitment, dedication, pretty much everything is often controlled by success or failure on the scale. When the scale went up to 236 again earlier this week, I had a temper tantrum. Very close to throwing myself on the floor nekkid, kicking, screaming, wailing.

Here is the Morning Scale Ritual. –
*Snoozing…with any luck
Step On Scale
See the Reading
Blaspheme the Scale’s Parentage
Step Off Scale
Step Back On Scale to Make Sure It’s Not Lying
Step Off Scale
Decide What Mood I’m In After Adding The Scale Factor
Get Washed Up and Dressed*

Pour Coffee. Sit at the Computer in PJs...
Start Work after 30Minutes
Eat Breakfast at Some Point

Go Poopy if I’m Lucky

Get Back Undressed
Step On Scale
See The Reading
Blaspheme the Scale’s Parentage
Step Off Scale
Step Back On Scale to Make Sure It’s Not Lying
Step Off Scale
Put PJs Back On and Go To Work

(*Who am I kidding here? “They” say the next step after the first step where you cop a confession is to quit lying. I don’t “dress.” I re-dress for the office in the same pjs I wore to bed the night before!

My PJs sometime have a spot or two from dinner remaining on the shirt front. I can’t figure out what’s up with that or how I STILL get spots of food on my non-existent bosom. I don’t have a drip-stopper anymore, no shelf or rack to conveniently catch things. And yet, I get spots on my shirt. Meh, I'm quite certain the mystery will be revealed to me in the afterlife, along with the locations of all the socks gone missing from the dryer.)

More Food Porn from Day 9

Poaching egg in piping hot kale soup allows you to keep the sofl yolk
sack in tact to break for a unctuous surprise!

Break the yolk for a creamy surprise.

Stir creamy yolk into hot soup. Your reward is creamy, rich soup!

Add parmesan cheese and shaving of lemon zest and a drop of lemon
juice or spicy vinegar and you have a cheap, gourmet meal that packs
a nutritional wallop!!

Cutting Revolutionary Wraps into noodles and simmering in the broth
adds protein and extra body to the rich bone broth!

Stay tuned for recipes soon! I will be posting the recipe for the spicy Zucchini Hash as well as the recipe for the Egg and Kale Soup!
