Done from the inside
Where it barely shows on the outside
We don't have to suffer, we're the best batch yet
Baked in special, we're the best batch yet

Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.”
Please allow me to confess, and get this off my bifurcated chest. There was a cookie, a small cookie, with a silly name, slathered in dulce de Leche. I dreamed of this cookie for two days, it being the last cookie. Dare I break my self imposed hiatus from these temptations or simply misplace the manual for a short time? “There seems to an edit in the tape, an 18 minute gap. He said it was his secretary Miss Woods, who through no maliciousness, accidentally turned off the machine for about 18 minutes. This brief interlude provided sufficient time to consume the said snickerdoodle, so none’s the wiser. Keep this on the hush-hush.
OK. Nobody is perfect. I will own that one. But for the sake of the long program, the small temptation has been removed, as I removed it. Truth be told I shared it with my sister, who made said cookie and Dulce de Leche. It was delicious and the memory haunts me to this day.
“It is true, we shall be monsters, cut off from all the world; but on that account we shall be more attached to one another.”

It is amazing just how much closer I have become to my darling love. How fortunate I have been to enjoy her nutritious meals and love and encouragement.
I recall the early days back from the hospital when she hand washed me in the shower, me sitting on a chair so I did not fall down.
There is less of me to love, as I am about 20 lbs lighter. The bags under my eyes must have weighed a few lbs, but they are disappearing too.
And everyday, a few more steps. Now the muscles and skin and other secondary concerns are undergoing changes, with some pains and difficulty as expected, but all of this is acceptable as part of the process to build this new monster.
Please note, I am accepting friend requests, ( except the Soviet porn girls that Zuckerberg keeps suggesting) real calls, texts, bowls of soup, money, NFTs, bitcoin.
If I am tired, I will simply tell you, and you can come back another time.

Fun fact: New monster doesn’t drink.
If you owe me $, now is a good time (living on 50%).
