I’m Fiiiiiiiiiine.

Thank you, sweet family and friends and virtual strangers, and online friends alike.  Sorry to have worried you.  I mentioned, in passing, that food isn’t really doing a lot for me lately. And that I’ve given up most chocolate.  You’re perfectly wonderful, proactive, caring individuals to start calling and emailing me about eating disorders. Really! I appreciate it! Now please let me explain a little, be reassured, and then stop, ‘kay?

I could hardly eat anything for awhile. My jaw hurt way too much. Plain m&ms were the first thing to go, followed by anything else crunchy, then anything solid.  I CAN eat solid food now, and do – but I never went back to the m&ms.  During that whole OW, MY JAW phase, it was the perfect time to evaluate what and how I was eating. I gave up all emotional/recreational eating.  I had no idea I was such an emotional eater!  Soooo not going back to that!

I think I’m more physically healthy than I have been in years and am working quite hard at continuing in that direction. Lots of exercise, and I’m back to the free weights. I just love a good barbell.  To keep up with all that exerise, I try to eat enough. It isn’t easy for some reason, but I’m hanging in there with protein bars and icky  shakes and lots of grilled chicken.

I’m WORKING at eating – not wasting away, I promise. Drinking lots of water, giving up Diet Coke (why not? if M&Ms are gone, I can do anything), taking calcium, and doing a few other big things for my health that I can’t tell you about for perfectly funny reasons.  But I wish that I could, becuase Oh! the posts!   

Workout Barbie is on my case about food, protein, weight and muscle mass at least twice a week. She has a scale and these awful pinch-y things that measure muscle mass and tickle the crap out of me, and she will nag me on your behalf whenever she thinks it is necessary – she already does. 

So. I’m fiiiiine.  Thank you so much. I usually think about how things I write here will be interpreted, and have gotten fairly good at guessing. I missed it this time, and I’m sorry.

And Jeff is nowhere to be found today. Yea!

Sounds like a colon cleanse or enema to me. Just kidding! I’m laughing anyway just because it’s funny. I”ll have to ask Thomas if he’s talked to Mike lately. Wonder if HE’s heard the new healthy body technique you’re using. ROFL!!!

No chocolate? Eating well? You don’t sound fiiiine to me… Where is my friend Kelsey and what have you done with her?

Now that we’re all breast conscious, are you going to make us flab conscious too? Oh my lands, I don’t think my body could take that kind of loving without a complete rebellion…

(But kudos for you for doing something that you want to do. You’re quite the inspiration.)

I can understand giving up the diet coke…die with a T coke that is. But never can I condone such an isolationalist attitude towards M&Ms! I mean really without M&Ms we no longer have the lovely terms listed below…

M&Melimination – the process of removing m’s from the pile and eating them rapidly

M&Melation – the joyous feeling after eating a bag of M’s only to find out that you have another bag in your desk drawer

M&Memesis – that evil co worker or friend or family member who is always prodding you to give up or share your m’s

Therefore I recom&mend to you some M&Medication of at least a bag a week to prevent you from going M&Mad!

Thanks again for the Total T advice and best wishes ~ Dave

I love muddin’ too. Unfortunately, after I rolled my hubby’s CJ-7 we don’t get to go anymore! Maybe someday!
