Random Photo #9: have you been on a diet?

2021 Random Photo Series

As a way of rounding out the year, I have decided to share 3 random photos from my phone each week, along with a discussion about why I took the picture. This might give you a sense of how I think and who I am.

Random Photo #9:

A meme off the internet that I saved to my phone. It made me laugh.

Have you ever been on a diet?

I don’t know about you, but during the lock downs of 2020 and early 2021, I put on some pandemic weight.

I dealt with the anxiety about the pandemic in two ways: by learning new things that I could use in marketing my business (like how to make videos and post to YouTube), and by eating comfort food.

Lots of comfort food.

Well, that isn’t sustainable, is it? I mean, the learning is okay, but the eating isn’t. Not good for the ol’ bod.

Consequently, I decided to lose weight. Getting a puppy helped to give me a reason to leave the house and go for a walk. I am a serious homebody and would rather do MANY other things than exercise. But the dog needs walking. Okay. I’ll walk the dog.

The other thing I’ve done is cut back on the carbs, and pay more attention to portion sizes. It hasn’t been easy, but I have lost the weight I put on. With continued perseverance, I’m hoping to continue losing weight.

When this meme showed up in my FaceBook feed, it made me laugh out loud. I saved it to my phone. It still makes me laugh.
