Scenes from a rainy Sunday:
I talked to my mother-in-law (Tatyana) on Skype today. My father-in-law (Vadim) is visiting and since they were robbed the last time they both came up, she elected to stay at home with the Jack Russell Terrierist.
I had not mentioned my weight loss to them, and so when I came on Skype, Tatyana was quite shocked to see what I look like now. (In a good way!) She asked what I had done to lose the weight (P.S. I have a ways to go yet, process is far from over, but I’ve come a long way and she hasn’t seen me in a year, so it’s pretty dramatic) and I told her the various bits and pieces of changes in my life, the app I use, etc. Finally came to the dairy thing.
Me: So it turns out I’m allergic to dairy, which I didn’t know until last year, but I guess I have been for a long time, which is why I felt sick a lot. So I don’t eat dairy anymore. That actually helps a lot.
She nodded. About fifteen minutes later, I hear the rest of the exchange from justbeast, which went on in Russian after I signed off.
Tatyana: What is Cat doing with her diet? She is only eating berries now? That is not healthy.
Vadim: (Awesomely deadpan) No, you heard it wrong. She is now eating only bear.
Most badass diet, and father-in-law, ever.
