Confessions of a Cheating Blogger

Dear my-own blog,

I have to come clean. There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just spit it out.

I had an affair with another blog.

Yes. I cheated on you. I wrote a post for someone else’s blog instead of for you. And I did it not once, but twice. And if that was not bad enough, it was much better than anything I have posted here in quite some time.

Worst of all, I enjoyed it. A lot.


Can you forgive me? I have not been giving you my best, I know.

Not that I’m trying to justify myself or anything because really, how could it ever be okay, but the thing is, it was really good content. And you know, content IS king! It’s a great story, whose tale is still unfolding, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with what we do here together, you and me. So it needed to happen outside of our relationship. But I want you to know I do truly feel terrible about it and I really was thinking about you (some of the time) while I was doing it.

Meanwhile for us here, well let’s face it, this weight loss saga can be a giant yawn. Especially right now. This is pretty much every day so far:

  • Bar
  • About a gallon of half-caf, black coffee
  • Shake
  • Water and then more water
  • Shake
  • Diet Dr. Pepper (just one a day now!)
  • Shake
  • Final water binge before 5pm so I do not pee all night but somehow I do anyway
  • Shake or soup depending on my mood
  • Hot bath to relax and distract myself from wanting to eat
  • Bar around bedtime
  • Chastise myself for lack of exercise
  • Sleep
  • Awake to discover that I have either not lost any weight (effectively) for like 4 days in a row, or then on the 5th day or so, lose like 2 pounds
  • Rinse and repeat

Let’s be clear. It’s working. It’s slow, but it is working. But it’s hardly titillating stuff. I’m not saying it’s in the same class as A Cure for Insomnia, but it’s not as far off as I’d like. And isn’t exactly wildly inspirational for regular new postings.

Here’s the thing… I can’t promise you I won’t stray again, though I’m expecting David will be doing the remainder of any guest blogging around that particular transgression, but no matter what happens, I promise, I’m saving all my love for you!

Though I’ve tried to resist, you being last on my list
No other blog’sĀ gonna do
So I’m saving all my love for you

It’s not very easy, blogging all alone
My friends try and tell me, write a blog of your own
But each time I try, I just break down and cry
Cause I’d rather be home eating stew
So I’m saving all my love for you
