This time two years ago was the beginning of the end of the relationship that gave me the idea for the script. The clues were all there but it was a shiny new year. I had a boyfriend, something I hadn’t had in ten years. So I just went with it and hoped for the best. Of course that never works.
I didn’t realise it at first. That the relationship was doomed. Realization wouldn’t come until later. I was just having fun. All I knew was a man wanted to spend time with me despite my weight. How awesome is that? What *Barry did teach me is that women pay too much attention to their weight. He didn’t care how much I weighed. I cared. It’s more important to be healthy. If you’re healthy at a heavier weight don’t sweat it.
But even though my brain didn’t see the signs my body did. I knew the break-up was coming and my body started to go into that break-up mode. For me that means I don’t feel as hungry. I started to crave food that was good for me. I know, weird, huh? With *Barry I ate too much junk food so I guess my body was craving food that was good for me.
When I finally decided to break up with him I got the idea for the script and I immediately texted *Betty with the title. Now that I’m starting a real diet tomorrow I want to write the script not just keep making notes on it.
I’m off to bed shortly. Tomorrow I offically start my diet. I’m going to dust off the Wii Fit and hope it doesn’t laugh at me when I step on that board.
