Friday, April 11, 2008      4 comments

Ok, so basically I'm referring to my last two blogs so you can read those if you want background information. I recently complained about weight watcher's muffins. I e-mailed them asking why they are now smaller and fall apart. I actually... Read more

Ok, so a couple of the stories I've read in the Chicken Soup for the Dieter's Soul are pretty good. But I was really thrown off by the first one! In it, the woman is obese at 290 pounds. She is unhappy with herself, but only changes becau... Read more

Ok, I went to the library yesterday. (Yes, of course, and?) I saw Chicken Soup for the Dieter's Soul. Seriously? Do they make a chicken soup for EVERYTHING? Apparently so! So I had to pick it up. This feels a little premature because ... Read more

"Weird" eating
Monday, March 10, 2008      9 comments

So I started a new book. I know, surprise surprise. It's called "Life Inside the 'Thin' Cage." It's pretty good so far, but a chapter on "weird" eating caught my attention today. With topics like high-sugar low-fat dieting, the nibbl... Read more

So it's 12:20 and I'm watching the food network. I'm usually up at this time, but apparently I need to go to bed! They introduced the secret ingredient "elf." I've literally watched this for 20 minutes and just NOW realized they didn't sa... Read more

Thursday, February 28, 2008      3 comments

Well if you're reading this, just a warning, you might think it's cheesy! I was singing along to a song yesterday not really thinking about it and the words got to me. I started thinking about them not being sung to a guy, but sung to all ... Read more

So I've gotten into a kick of reading. I've been to the library quite a few times within the past couple of months. I've placed holds on various books. But it's a little overwhelming when they all come at once! I got an e-mail saying a b... Read more
