Gracie- What’s up?
Kris- Oh, another day another dollar.
G- Hmmmm well you’re just lucky to have a job.
K- Oh yea, I’m not complaining. I don’t mind. I just wish I could concentrate on art more. I have so many ideas going through my head, I feel I don’t have enough time in the day to do everything I wanted.
G- Sounds to me like those high expectations of yourself are coming into play again. You can only do so much.
K- Yea I know, I know.
G- So I was looking at today, day 27.
G- Yea. What’s going on? Why compare us like that?
K- Well yesterday I weighed myself at work.
G- Oh geez. Not a good sign.
K- No it wasn’t. Remember a couple weeks ago, when i said I didn’t want to go above 200 lbs?
G- Ummm yea?
K- Well, I did. Yesterday I weighed 206.7 lbs.
G- Oh you had to add that extra .7 in there did ya?
K- Well, yea!! Although hopefully that is just water weight..haha
G- So why are you telling me this?
K- Oh I don’t know.. because it’s on my mind. I looked back and found in March of this year, I only weighed 165. So I gained 41 lbs.
K- You’re so funny!!
G- Yea, I know 😀 Seriously though, what are you thinking? I mean you had to know that eating all that ice cream and those bags of M&M’s would make you fat. Do you know why I’m not fat?
K- Ummmmm, because you can’t eat?
G- Ok, well besides that fact? By the way, thank you for pointing that out Ms. Smartypants!!
K- Well I guess I have to say, because I don’t want you to be fat.
G- Yes, exactly. Why can’t you use that same thinking for yourself?
K- I know, you’re right, but much easier said than done.
G- Sighs!!! It’s all in your mind. Just think about it.
