Carry That Weight

My recent bilateral toenailectomy has had an unfortunate side effect entirely unrelated to the masked man who hacked at my feet with his interesting mini crowbar and scalpel combination.

Though both weeping wounds have long since stopped weeping, and the skin is returning to its standard "Scotland in February" corned-beef tones, the areas where the nails used to be are still a tad tender.

Unfortunately, this has left me unable to play football (some might argue that it has had no bearing on my inability to play football, but that's a debate for another day).

Even more unforunately, two games of football a week is about the only exercise I get. And now it has been temporarily removed from my schedule.

Which means that my weight is slowly but steadily creeping upwards, and I am in danger of reaching a weight I have never reached before.

I'm not quite there yet, but another week or two of couch-based chocolate guzzling would pretty much do it, I'm sure.

When exactly do you expect to breech the 20 stone barrier.

20 stone is still a wee bit away, but 14 is moving steadily into view as we speak.

I've put myself on a salad for lunch everyday regiment for exactly that reason, she says as she throws a piece of black forest chocolate cake with vanilla icing in her mouth.

Hope your toes mend soon... and how many stones in a kilogram, or is it kilograms in a stone?

Groanin' Jock said...

Thanks Rob - and 14 stone is around 89 kilograms...
