That’s right people I lost 7.8 pounds this week.  I actually was a little in shock  after the weigh in.  I know some of it is water weight but who cares,  it counts.  I know I won’t do that every week but it’s a nice start.

I wrote down every single drop of food that went into my mouth including 1 tablespoon of Quiche that I had made for Sarah and her hubby.  I also went out to lunch today with the family and Lilah’s other grandmother.  I had a grilled chicken sandwich and actually had them hold the cheese.  I love cheese.  It’s in my top 5 foods I love.  I could have had it and counted the points but I kept thinking how much food I could have later for the same number of points.  It became a no brainer.

Of course the leader of the meeting brought up my weight loss to everyone in the room which means I have to lose something this week so I don’t look like a wuss. 


 I used the spell checker on this and according to the checker the word “weigh” is spelled wrong.  I really can’t come up with any other way to spell it.



Watching the Weight

Aren’t we all weight watchers?  I don’t know of one woman who doesn’t watch her weight.  Even the real, how do I put this delicately,  “FATTIES”, watch their weight.  They don’t necessarily do anything about it.  They just watch it.  Even if they don’t have a scale they still watch their weight.  They have to look in the mirror occasionally and when they do you know damn well they are watching their weight in that truthful mirror. How do I know this?  I know this because I am still a “FATTY” and I have watched my weight for years. 

I don’t know who this woman is but I wish I had good eyesight like she does.




I watched it when I was thin so I wouldn’t get fat and I watched it when I was fat ( not to say that I’m not fat now)  just in case some miracle happened during the night.  Yes, I still believe in miracles but the weight loss miracle eludes me.  30 years and the miracle of weight loss is like a pie in the sky.  It ain’t gonna happen and if it does I want chocolate cream pie, please.

So I’m back to weight watchers again and this time I mean the real “Weight Watcher”  program  You know the one.  The one with the meetings and points and low-fat everything.

I haven’t been to weight watchers in a while and my scale proves that.  I have tried going back a few times but I always found an excuse to not attend meetings.  No meetings–no weight loss.

I went to the meeting last Monday and I have been counting points all week.  I go again tomorrow .  I’ll let you know what happened.

Oh, one more thing–you know how everyone says they are losing weight for their health–HELL NO!!  I want to look hot!!


Halloween is Coming!

After I wrote my last post and before I watched that trashy movie , I thought about nothing.  Remember my meditation thing I had going yesterday?  I really shouldn’t think of nothing.  Nothing confuses me. Nothing is an indefinite pronoun which means nothing refers to something.   That means when I was thinking about nothing I was really thinking about something and that something was nothing.

Nothing freaks me out and I don’t mean that no things freak me out I mean that the idea of nothing freaks me out.  The idea of nothing seems so,  well, nothing.

So if someone asks you “What’s cool with you? ” and you say “Nothing”  does that mean nothing is cool and if nothing is cool does that mean everyone is going to want it and if everyone wants it should I start selling it?

What does nothing look like?


I’m wondering what I should charge for nothing?  I’m seeing dollar signs $$$$$$$$$$$.  It’s got to be packaged nicely.  Packaging always helps to sell something except I’m selling nothing so the packaging confuses me.  I really thought nothing confused me.

Can you put a ribbon around nothing?   I’m thinking red and green here folks (Christmas).  I’ve always wanted to give my friends and family nothing for Christmas and I think this is the perfect year for that.  Wow, shopping is going to be easy though the wrapping may be tough.  I can’t decide what color goes well with nothing. 

I think this packaging is too commercial.  I want my nothing to look homemade.


Nothing has given me so much to think about. 

You’ve heard the saying “Get Something for Nothing”  How about “Get Nothing for Something”. 

Now that you’ve read about nothing I think I will not think of nothing and watch a trashy movie.




One last thing before the movie—-there is a lot of crap out there about nothing but I will have you know that all the crap I wrote here about nothing came from the emptiness of my own mind. Consider Nothing copywrited by me.

A Post About Nothing

I honestly can’t think of a thing to write.  Sarah and the baby have gone off island to a wedding shower leaving me to my own devices.  I love the little one but it’s nice to have a day off.

You know how you are supposed to clear your mind when you meditate?  I did that.  Now what? My brain is empty.









I think I will go watch a movie and fill my brain with trash.
