Clean Slate Day

For those of you who have been reading with me all week, you may have noticed that I’ve been a little low. Not to worry! Because my favorite thing about Weight Watchers is Fridays. Fridays are meeting days. Fridays are weigh-in days. Most importantly, Fridays are clean slate days. I could use a clean slate … Continue reading

Exercise, we’re in a fight

Exercise, we’re in a fight

Dear Exercise, We’ve known each other for a long time now. Off and on for years. There was that long stretch when I was really young where you and I did gymnastics together. Remember? You let me pretend that I was a real competitive gymnast and I stuck with you longer than I wanted to … Continue reading

Pregnant or fat?

So this happened to me. My sister-in-law is expecting (first grandchild in the family, all very exciting!) and in my attempt to be the perfect sister-in-law, I wanted to not only send her a mother’s day card this year, but also include a gift. Never mind that the truly perfect sister-in-law thing to do would … Continue reading

The Crack Addict & The Toddler

The Crack Addict & The Toddler

There’s a famous story in my family called “The Crack Addict and the Toddler.” Alright, nobody’s ever called it that, but I think we all should. The story goes that when I was a wee young lass of about 3, my father took me to Toys ‘R’ Us to purchase a birthday present for another child who’s … Continue reading

Summertime and the livin’ is busy

Summertime and the livin’ is busy

Well I feel gross. The weekend took me down a little. Or rather, I let the weekend take me down. I have found myself back in my old pattern of ginormous weekend consumption followed by super strict eating and lots of exercise during the week to make up for it. And it’s only Monday. Sigh. … Continue reading

Poor Unfortunate Soul

Poor Unfortunate Soul

Alright, let’s get down to brass tax. I don’t really know the origin of this term, but it seems official, and I’d like this to be official. It’s time to officially look at what I have been doing wrong. I’ve thought about it. And I realized that my problem is that I eat too much. Duh! … Continue reading

Push it good.

Push it good.

It happened. Again. I tore a fancy dress on the dance floor. This time straight up my ass.  I’m all class after all. Both times occurred post-dramatic weight loss, which is ironic in an Alanis Morissette sort of way. So I thought it appropriate to examine these black flies in my chardonnay. Rip #1 aka … Continue reading

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.

Yesterday I had the pleasure to attend a housewarming party at a fabulous home in the Hollywood/Studio City Hills. For everyone reading outside of Los Angeles, picture driving up the famous Mulholland Dr. that overlooks the entire city of Los Angeles, following not one, not two, but FOUR Star Tours buses filled with tourists wearing … Continue reading

Sunday Sunday Sunday!

Sunday Sunday Sunday!

Here we are, friends…Sunday morning. And although I hate the fact that Weight Watchers has brainwashed me, I have learned in my meetings that it might be a good move to check in. A few weeks ago I somehow managed to avoid my usual full weekends of lunches with beers and decadent dinners out. It … Continue reading
