I'm on a mission to eat healthier and lose weight. Visiting my family for the past week and a half plus attending two weddings and three receptions has not helped. No indeed.
My family, bless their hearts, have a comfortable relationship with food.
We're happy. Have some food!
I haven't seen you in ten years. Have some food!
It's a wedding. Come eat food!
It's a party. Eat! Eat!
Aunty said you're looking chubby. Eat some food to drown your sorrows!
Strawberries are on sale. Let's make pie!
You're on vacation. Eat some food!
Please do not blog your delicious brownies because I will have to make my own-- complete with cream cheese-- and proceed to eat half the pan by myself.
Please do not blog horrible in-laws stories or potty-training nightmares-- because it will give me anxiety and I will return to the pan of brownies and proceed to drown out my anxiety with another piece.
Don't tell me about the deals you got on Cheetos using a coupon or whatnot. I'll have to "save" too by adding to my waistline.
Choose to follow me in my journey and leave comments filled with awesome low-fat meals that are frugally minded too
Leave encouraging comments that will boost me up and keep me going
Come visit me so I feel the "omigosh my bestest blogging pal is going to meet me in real life and now I seriously need to lose weight" encouragement.
So, now that you're all curious, and likely will go back through 800ish posts to find a picture of me (good luck), I have 85 pounds to lose. 85!
Even if you don't need to lose or maybe just want to lose 10 lbs. or less, I appreciate all encouragement and LOVE to hear success stories and what worked for you, or your neighbor. ;)
