Who knew that a simple omelette could cause so much trouble? A couple of evenings ago I got a serious case of the munchies. In my defence, I hadn’t gotten out of bed until quite late in the day after hurting my knee on my treadmill, and therefore hadn’t had breakfast or lunch. It hit 10pm and I really wanted food. My wonderful other half thinks that ignoring my food-talk will make it go away, but it just makes it worse. As I was contemplating a McDonalds Drive-Thru, he suggested making me an omelette – very sweet of him you may think. Off he went, into the kitchen to rustle it up, whilst I sat there getting more and more stressed out. The omelette arrived – cheese and mushroom – and the first few bites were lovely until I noticed ‘IT!’. ‘IT!’ was a pubic hair, delicately garnishing the edge of my place. I hit the roof and so did the omelette!! After much screaming and shouting on my part, and a lack of acknowledgement and eye contact on his, I proceeded to tell him that I’d show him what his poor hygiene practices did to me by taking a dump on his beloved iPad the following day. It was at this point that I almost burst out laughing…how bloody ridiculous?! Luckily he didn’t notice my grin – and luckily I didn’t follow through with my plan!!!
It’s amazing what being my size does to your mind. Interestingly, I found out not so long ago that the fatter you are, the more hormones you have…you can start feeling sorry for my other half now! I do suffer from terrible mood swings, and find myself laughing hysterically after a good argument – which generally start as a result of a food-related incident. I also find myself crying during these ‘episodes’ though – how did I let it get to this, and how do I stop it? As a fairly intelligent person – Post Grad Diploma and Masters Degree – who has had a good career managing teams of people and saving companies hundreds of thousands of £££s, what led me to letting myself get so out of control when it comes to my eating habits?
