Conversations with Pinboy…

Here are the highlights from the week:

Pinboy:  We have to work that tricep as deep as we can, because your triceps muscles are long.

Me:  Yeah, I have long upper arms, short forearms, small hands, a long torso, and short legs…and I’m 5’10”.

Pinboy:  Yeah, like that Burger King commercial.

Next day. . .

Me:  I think my face is getting fatter.

Pinboy:  Looking dumbfounded…Uh…no.

Me:  Is it in my head? 

Pinboy:  It’s in your head.

Me:  I was one pound lighter after work than I was before work.

Pinboy:  And that was??? 

Me:  (Told him my weight and then told him that two days ago I weighed two pounds less than I do today.)

Pinboy:  Your body is weird.

Oh, and he totally took advantage my inability to convert kg to lbs.  I was lifting 12 kg kettle bells…26 freakin’ pounds!  He had me convinced they were about 15 lbs.

    Hope you get more time home…after your trip.

    There was humor bantered about in those conversations. He just can’t understand with how I eat 90 percent of the time, and how much I exercise, why the pounds don’t fly off…because with any normal person they would. Then, he knows my weight, that I keep losing inches, but no pounds. It is dumbfounding. I have a lot of fluid weight, and I think that’s what the problem is. That is my thyroid. I read somewhere a while back that losing inches, and not by pounds is how hypothyroid folks should measure success. However, I am dangerously obese, and I’m trying really hard not to be.
