I’m on to you!

I’ve a suspicion that for a few months now I’m being “subtweeted” by a guy on Twitter.

For those of you that don’t know, subtweeting is where you post a status that is targeted at someone without actually mentioning (or tagging) them. It’s often because you want to mock them or because you disagree with something they’ve said and you’re not brave enough to say it outright. Occasionally it’s done on purpose to prove a point and without any ambiguity, but still not tagging the person.

This has been going on for a few months, in fact probably it’s more like twelve months since I first noticed it.

What happens is I tweet something and a week or so later he posts something that contradicts or mocks what I’ve put. There is, of course, the very real chance it’s coincidence but it’s happened too often for me to be comfortable with that idea.

Lets say I post “I love using yellow highlighters” then a week or so later he’ll post “People who love using yellow highlighters are such a cliche,” but will continue with a diatribe about why he feels this way.

It happens about once a month.

I’m not going to give direct examples, or even name the guy, because hey, if he can subtweet then so can I.

I’m expecting, maybe next week, a status from him saying “People who post blog posts about people who subtweet are so out of touch!” Or something like that.

We’ll see.

And so it begins… again.

I’ve rejoined the gym.

During lockdown I gained almost two and half stone and am absolutely disgusted with myself. That being said, if the scales are right this morning, since realising my stupidity and monitoring my food intake I’m not down a stone and a half.

Currently, and I’m ashamed to say this, I’m 21st. I keep saying I need to do something about yet I’m my own worst enemy. I know what I need to do I just don’t do it! And I genuinely don’t know why.

I know where I go wrong and I know how to stop it. I know the right things to do and I know when and where to do it. I know where to get help and I know who I can turn to. So with all that in mind why do I constantly sabotage myself? Why do I do so well at Weight Watchers or at the gym for a few months and then, just when I’m showing some progress I let it all go.

I do not know why I do this. If you know then please tell me!
