Who Do you See in The Mirror?

Who do you see in the mirror?

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the thinnest girl of all?” The day I lost my skinny mirror, my life shattered. Ok, maybe that’s a tad exaggerated, but STILL! Once, my mirror reflected my lumps and bumps as straight lines and smooth surfaces.  I loved this mirror almost as much as I loved my [...]

So, I’ve been on a Diet

Humor over Fashion Trends, namely Skinny Jeans. One girl's battle with big legs and small pants.

You all know I’ve been on a diet, right? Only diet seems to be a four letter word.  It’s a healthy eating plan.  It’s a new outlook, a renewed relationship with food.  It’s for life. That kind of makes me want to jump off the nearest bridge, because it smacks of donut shops with a [...]

A Popping Good Secret

homemade microwave popcorn

I have loved popcorn for as long as I can remember, and when I say love, I mean an arrow shoots me through the heart and causes me to salivate every time I smell a kernel go pop.  Butter makes it extra yummy-delicious. When we were kids, my mom had one of those groovy air [...]

Before & After Weight Loss

weight loss twenty-five pounds

Since I’ve blabbed about my diet for the past four months, I decided to do a little before and after.  Now don’t go getting too excited.  I only lost twenty-six pounds and I didn’t actually take a “Before” or “After”; however, thanks to What I Wore Wednesday, I now have more lousy photographs of myself [...]

An M&M Monday


Sometimes I wish people were more like M&M’s.  I mean, we already come in a variety of colors.  I just want to know why we can’t all be filled with milk (or dark if that’s your preference) chocolate sweetness. A hard candy shell may nice on the outside, but when our center is just as [...]

Liposuction is Looking Better Every Day

Liposuction is Looking Better Every Day - Diet & Weight Loss

  I was walking on the high-school track the other night feeling pretty darn good about my three miles. Heck, I even pumped and arm or two during my imaginary race around the circle. That is, until Granny showed up. This woman, who is considerably older, heavier, and more wrinkly than I, moved faster than [...]

10 Things I’ve Learned about Dieting

Dieting TIps

I’m on a diet.  That should be explanation enough for any weird moods and hallucinations of cheeseburgers. I find myself Googling every yummy food known to man in order to get a calorie count, only to realize I cannot eat it, because diets only let you eat the caloric equivalent of a piece of unbuttered [...]

Oh, so good, even though it’s not good for me.


I don’t allow myself the pleasure often, but when I do, it’s heavenly. As silly as it may be, I’m thankful for Chips, Queso, and Diet Coke. What about you?  Any guilty pleasures? Please do share!

Singing Amazing Grace & Eating a Cherry Pie

“I’m cold and hungry.  I thought this eating healthy thing was supposed to be doing me some good.  I ate two oranges today and I don’t feel one bit better.” This is part of an actual conversation in my home.  I won’t divulge the identity of the speaker.  She would rather remain anonymous. Later in [...]

Eeyore, Green Beans, My Blog, & Murder

I am in a contemplative mood today, more Eeyore and less Tigger.  Maybe it’s the dreariness of the day or the fact that I’m having a terrible time breathing today. I’m not sure. All I know is that I’m spending the entire day in the kitchen feeling a bit melancholy.  Probably because I’m spending the [...]
