Dear aging metabolism,

We had a deal, dammit. I would walk a zillion miles on our vacation, and you would bounce into overdrive and lose us just a few pounds. Yes, we ate a LOT of good food (and quaffed a few or more pints) during our stay, but the walking was supposed to nullify that; not GAIN six pounds. Now get with the program!

Sincerely, was NOT expecting the scale to tell me that when I got home, to the point I might have to start using that damned gym membership the husband bought a couple months ago.

Dear seatazzz,

Your older and wiser, not a younger gymnist..i try and convice people to use their heads, excercise is a gimick because the big food companys don't want you to cut into their bank account...be smarter, the USDA has a free food db, basiclly everything in everything, except proccessed food, and some third party utilities makes sense of it and do the number crunching with that compared to the RDA's...all it took me was 6-7 months to start beating up grocery store ass! lost 90lbs 13 years ago, kept it off, and i did do one damn thing i have to physically!

Sincerely, Bracc...

(a guy that knows i burn 2820 calories sitting on my ass drinking all day, and a woman only burns ~1800! 😇 😜

but i also know you can meet all you're nutritional needs for 1400, a beer is around 160 or so...still got some drinking room in you!)

Dear @bracconiere,

Never was a gymnast, but until about 10 years ago managed to keep it about 130-140 (I'm 5'2") for the most part. That was when I was working two jobs, one as a bartender on my feet for 6-8 hours running my butt off. Since I've been working at one job where I sit all day, metabolism has decided to pretty much say eff off. Brewing my own tasty beer hasn't helped either. Husband doesn't mind, and I really don't care what other people think of my rather round physique; but the lower backache from just walking a quarter mile is starting to pall. Blood pressure ain't great either. Gotta get some motivation...

Sincerely, tired of being fat.

Dear @bracconiere,

Too many numbers. Where's the magic pill that will make me drop 30lbs in a month???

Sincerely, too lazy to exercise or count calories which is why I am fat.

Dear Amazon,

Thank you for having that nifty little app that lets me turn off and log out my (currently lost on an airplane somewhere) Fire tablet.

Sincerely, worried to death someone will get my info.

And...

Dear Husband,

Yes, I have said some slightly unkind things about you on this forum. But you are my life, my love, my best friend, and my enabler. Thank you for letting me order another tablet so I can have my books, my youtube, and my sanity. I don't care how many bowling balls/golf clubs you have because that's your happiness. Love you long time.

Sincerely, grateful wife who is also kicking herself emphatically for leaving tablet on airplane.
