Day 36: Back up into the skies after Sandy...

Blog Post created by SkyGirl on Nov 1, 2012

Seems like I've been stuck on the ground forever!  This trip is DC-Seattle-Houston-Las Vegas-DC over the next 48 hours or so.

BUT, my uniform is too tight.  I know I joked about gaining weight a couple of weeks ago, and everyone said not to worry.  But this is getting almost frightening, the speed at which I'm enlarging.  I'm not eating in a manner that would cause this.  It's hard to believe that nicotine was suppressing my appetite and increasing my metabolism so much that THIS is the result of removing nicotine from my system.  And I'm not being vain, here, folks; I'm not moaning over a few lbs.  The scales say I've gained 21 lbs in just 36 days.  That is horrifying.

I feel like crying.  I won't, because I don't have time.  I guess I'll just wear the United Airlines sweater over my uniform and hope nobody sees how badly this uniform is (not) fitting.  And no, I can't order a new uniform.  We merged with Continental and no more uniform pieces are available until the new uniform comes out in January.

Ok, off to serve coffee and tea in the "Greyhound in the sky"...  Not feeling happy at ALL.   I guess I also have to say "I won't smoke" so nobody will have to tell me not smoke.  I don't even feel like it.  THAT'S how bad I'm feeling about this.
