Whether you choose to see a shrink or succumb to drug, alcohol or any kind of addiction, it is all the same. They’re all just different forms of escapism.

No matter what you give into, at the end of the day you are the only person who can help you self.

Dentists and weight loss – two things that seem to be unrelated, at least to me. But a lot of people tend to connect the two, especially when it comes to people who horizontally challenged (just a nicer way saying ‘fat’! 🙂 ) and have braces!

Well, in an earlier post I had mentioned a cute dentist and four missing teeth. If you haven’t realized I am the one with the four missing teeth! OK, I know I’m a little too old for braces!!

Anyway, after all the “oh my god” and the guffaws, everyone who saw me with braces had only one thing to say, “You’re gonna loose a lotta weight now!” . And I just gave them my metallic smile. *sigh*

I know people who have lost weight while they had braces and too an extent I can understand why. Initially, all you can eat are things that are semi solid. But that doesn’t have to be the case in the long run.

Weighty-issues

I’ve been eating like I used to without a problem. I know they would have gone back to their normal eating habits too, eventually. But they loose oodles of weight and me, well, not an inch !

Couple of days back I was chatting with a lady at the gym and I happened to mention to her that I had gone back to India to study and that I was staying by myself for a couple of years the. The look on her face was, well, pretty amusing actually and she says “Then how come you’re soooo fat?!?!?!“. And I give her another metallic smile. She goes on to say, ” My son too had gone to India to study and he has lost sooo much weight. Even if he eats a lot now, he doesn’t put on weight! “.

It makes you cry

Some people are just so darn lucky!

Some people don’t have to bother about weighty-issues, eat all they want and still don’t put on an inch. Some people just have to do stuff like, well, go to India ! or get braces and poof ! they’ve lost all the extra pounds. And me, well, I’m gonna have to work my butt of to get rid of all that I’ve acquired over the years.

Wonder if I’ll ever get to see a skinny me !

I guess not.

 

In my last post I’d mentioned that I’d be going to Kerala. Well, yeah, that happened. Didn’t get to do much there. Thanks to the monsoons. Came face-to-face with one of my biggest fears (More about that in another post).

Got back from Kerala and now… I’m in Oman. Was a little apprehensive about coming here, apprehensive about seeing what had become of this country. I must say, life has gone back to normal for most of the people, especially for those who weren’t affected to that great an extent. I heard that besides all the infrastructure damage, which was mentioned by the main stream media, not much has been said about all the lives lost. I remember one of the news channels mentioning a 20+ figure but here they say it is definitely in the thousands. I don’t know if that is a good thing or bad (here I’m not talking about the fact that lives were lost…but the fact that the full extent of the damage done was not explicitly stated anywhere).

Work is on full swing to restore all the damage done. There are only very few parts within the city where you will actually see any remnants of what had happened. Its still quite depressing to see the Qurum area. Shops are slowly re-opening now. Things are getting back to normal.

The Muscat Municipality and other concerned authorities have been working their butts off! Doing this kind of work in this kind of heat!! Hats off to them.

Well, besides that… our phone line’s gone kaput, which means no internet! It was only last night that I figured out that I could use my cell phone connection to access the internet. Woo hoo!

You’ll be seeing more of me now! 🙂

“Days Go By” – Dirty Vegas 

You
You

You are still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That’s pulling at my skin

You leave me when I’m at my worst
Feeling as if I’ve been cursed
Bitter cold within

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Without you
Without you

You are still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That’s pulling at my skin

You leave me when I’m at my worst
Feeling as if I’ve been cursed
Bitter cold within

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Without you
Without you

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Without you
Without you
Without you
Without you
Without you
