Super Loser (of Weight That Is)

296.5 – I finally got a new belt last night and not a moment too soon. I was on the last hole and my pants were hanging precariously from my hips. I went ahead and got two the next two sizes down to save the hassle of going out again in six months to get a new one (the power of positive thinking, eh?).

I’m still in training, but I missed so much yesterday with work interruptions that I’m a little behind. This morning has been no better. What a scheduling mess. A big project in QA, another big one going into QA on Friday and a new Giganto Project in the requirements phase, all with due dates this week. Oh, and I have a cold. Yes!! The perfect week.

I actually sat down and watched the second half of Joe Millionaire last night. Ok, I get it. It’s horribly mean-spirited and “poor” Evan has to keep this deep dark secret. Watching the girls get all catty, and ruining Zora’s date was pretty funny. But, when you get down to it, it’s capitalizing on their greed and Evan’s willingness to play the bait in this awful farce. When you think about it, it’s pretty despicable even though it makes for great TV. I don’t think I’ll watch it next week.
