Weighty Issues

Dear weighing scale,

How could you do this to me? It is SO not fair, snifff... I made gulab jamoons, kaju katli, poha payasa and murukku for Diwali. How many did I eat? 1 of each. How many did J eat? 10-15 pieces of each. Last Sunday I made onion pakodas, you know rainy day, tea time snacks. I ate half a pakoda only to check if the seasonings are ok. J ate 9. Thats right, N-I-N-E.

What does he munch in his office? Raisins, no not the ordinary ones the man only eats chocolate covered raisins. What do I munch at home, 7 baby carrots with 1Tbsp hummus at 11pm then 1 apple at 3pm. J's exercise 25 steps from the door to the lift and 17 steps to his car then some 100 odd steps through the day, then punching the keyboard. Me, I bust my ass from 4.30 to 5.30am doing this,
laundry ok ok I don't handwash the clothes the machine does it, but I still hand fold them, washing dishes, cooking, vacuuming and the most calorie burning of it all-running after my hyper 16mo( what you didn't know I had a 16mo? Are you not my FB friend :D).

Even after all this how could you tell J- 'you have lost 1.8lbs since your last weigh-in' and tell me 'you have gained 1.8 lbs'?!

Sigh, I don't know what else to tell you except, I hate you.
Yours Insincerely,
