I am continuing on the My Husband Is A F#$!head Diet. I have lost 10 lbs. This is aided by the realization that if I need to stop obsessing I should go for a walk outside. Why walking outside can stop my brain from obsessing when it obsesses so nicely whilst pacing inside is something I haven’t quite figured out but it works. I don’t necessarily stop thinking about things but I stop obsessing. Subtle difference but important for my sanity.

Anyway, I’ve been walking to the end of my road and back. That’s a total of 2 miles. Sometimes I need to do it twice a day. I’m basically strolling for sanity and not striding for fitness but it is still 2 to 4 miles a day.

Today I ran to Goodwill on the way to work because I was in dire need of a belt to stop my pants from collapsing. I also grabbed a pair of size 12 jeans. These are proper size 12s with no stretch material to be forgiving. I tried them on when I got home and they fit perfectly! So some good is coming of all this stress.

    Yeah for the weightloss!!!!! I suspect you stop obsessing when you’re outside because the vastness of the outdoors subconsciously puts your problem in real perspective. (And gods does that sound pretensious. No, not implying that in the scheme of YOUR life that the dissolvement of your marriage isn’t very important, but being outside allows you to see the world, and therefore the other problems -and joys- present in that world.)

    If you don’t mind my asking, what is your goal weight/pant-size???

What Do You Think?
