What do you want from me?

What is it with weight? When you’re trying to lose it you can’t. When you think ‘fuck it, I’m not pandering to you any more weight - I refuse to be your victim’ - you lose it. What is that about? Is it some cosmic joke that the universe plays on us? I believe it is. Currently, I seem to be losing weight. I say ‘seem to’ as I’m waiting for the weight to find me again. Am I doing anything special? I dunno. So do I continue with the ‘dunno’ diet or what? What do you want from me universe?

Yep, I blame the universe. It screws with an overweight person’s mind. I’m not sure what the universe does to slim people or blonde people or bald men or politicians - I’m sure there’s a similar mind game going on there – but enough is enough universe. Let us be. Stop toying with us.
