Weight and Watch

A long long time ago, long before watching one's weight reached fashionable proportions, we used to have a simple routine at home, that of measuring our weight every month...
Having hovered around the twenty and thirty kg mark for a long time, crossing the 50 kg mark was a big priority in my wishlist... But we humans are funny folk.. its been a long time since i crossed the magic figure, and now i exercise so that i can keep it somewhere close to that figure.. like the saying goes, the more things change the more they remain the same...in childhood, it was about increasing the weight till it reached there, and now its about decreasing it...
however, i have always wondered when exactly the body weight increases, when exactly was it that i crossed from 49 kg to 50 kg.... like the movement of the hour hand of a clock, we never manage to know the exact moment... not for any particular purpose, just curiosity...
until next time, wait a second, and think about it....

I was looking at your Blog,Agent Orange is one I'm trying to get together. I have a long way to go, it involves Companies producing Agent Orange and various things like that. Check it out if you get a chance.

quite like asking oneself..."when did i grow up?".
We know it has happened (and keeps happening), but what was that moment?

until next time, run around losing weight, but not sleep over it :)

It was long before I crossed from 49 to 50.

pallavi: weighty issues :)

Poornima said...

When I was younger and was weighed I thought it was to sell me off- like the old newspapers that my mother dealt away with, when I reached a sellabe weight! So I hardly ate...

Prerona said...

i was never weighed as a kid! :(
atleast not that i remember. actually i was so huge even then (all my nicks focussed on my size / weight, both at home and among friends) that maybe they didnt wanna take the risk and get upset :)

manuscrypts said...

poornima: u r a riot!! :)

prerona: welcome... so long as u r cool with ur weight, its all okay :)

Stone said...

I'm under weight by 2-3kgs, and my waist size is obscene wrt to weight :(( :((
grrr...I hate this increasing paunch :(( :((

For the record, I never liked Maltova. It was the youngest of the Su sisters, the big Srikkanth fan, who liked it.

Complan is supposed to make one grow. And I always managed to be a little taller than you. :-D

Talking about parents, they never had anything else to do other than pit us against each other, did they?

Stone, you are not alone. I am underweight by a few kilograms but have an incrementing paunch. Like one of my classmates who told me the other day, "You are the same boy I knew at school. Except that now you have a more matured face and a slight paunch."

Mature and paunch do not go well together, do they?

:D
The struggle is only but a few months new to me... I sympathise now with the 30 something woman jogging around my apartment morning n night!

manuscrypts said...

stone: any revealing pre/post marriage statistics?? :)

TCWB: i still believe all those stuff have steroid content :)

manuscrypts said...

TCWB: mature face!!! LOL

nupur: it all begins with sympathy..then we move on to empathy.. :)

aqua said...

okay so i still have not crossed over the magic figure yet..? eew :)

Anonymous said...

More matured face, when you compare me 10 years ago with me now. Nothing funny!

And if Complan and Maltova did contain steroids, I should have grown a lot faster. I think they have anti-steroids in them.

phatichar said...

Boy, do I envy you!! Only 50 kg????

Anonymous said...

Envy not Phatichar, the half-century happened over a decade ago!

--TCWB.

manuscrypts said...

aqua: the magic figure is a very customised one..:)

TCWB: actually you might be resistant to steroids :)

manuscrypts said...

phatichar: slightly more...

TCWB: a decade!! rot!! anyways am still within 6-7 kgs of that, so its ok :)

Mirage said...

I remember a photograph that was taken when you landed here for your entrance exams. I was struggling to cross 49, and you weighed well over that. Atleast, that is how you looked.

So you are claiming you weight less than me? Less than 60? Rot!

As for steroids, what do you think attributed to the recent weight gain? :->

The nation's statistics on weight problems are posted in round figues. :-)

W = mg.

Women = Man's brain * Girl's body.

Or is that Weight ?

Parna said...

interesting. :) you always seem to pick on some topic which brings out a memory associated with childhood. this one - standing in line to be weighed. and you are bang on - trying to lose it now. come full circle we have it seems.

manuscrypts said...

mirage: used to, sometime back :)

cynic: :))

manuscrypts said...

JW: yup, could have guessed as much :)

TCWB: u weigh more than 60!!..:))), 57 and lovin it...

manuscrypts said...

stone: is also a measure of weight :)

V: so isnt there a concept of 'woman's brain' at all ? :).. ah, but maybe we are speaking of a higher conscience level, its only the body thats different...

manuscrypts said...

parna: we usually do :)

My dear fellow, you cannot be 57. Your scales must be mis-numbered or broken!
