Folks, the editors here are kicking me to the curb. They said I didn’t lose enough weight for them to allow me to continue. I was so depressed, I baked a cake and ate the whole thing.
Again, I’m both happy and sad Christmas is over. I love all the build up to The Big Day. The malls, the music, the wrapping paper, the decorations, the solemnity of candles in celebration of the holy day.
It’s late, and this is the first time I’ve set foot in my home since 7:30 a.m. – 15 hours ago. That would sound unusual if it weren’t Christmastime.
I love, love, love the Christmas season, and don’t want it to ever end.
On a promo poster for A&E’s upcoming show Heavy, there’s a photo of a large woman, natch, against a stark, dark background. At the top it states, “From the network that brought you Intervention.” In other words, “We know how to edit to squeeze the most drama out of every moment and every last drop from your tear…
Red Lobster, you’re on notice: I find it nearly impossible to resist your calamari, so I’m going to sue you for unfairly tempting me beyond my control.
The new year always signals a new beginning, whether you want it to or not.
I’m kidding, of course. I know there are diets out there now with special cookies that are loaded with fiber to fill you up, but I can’t say I know anything about them.
Let me see if I understand this correctly: Allergan Inc., makers of the Lap-Band medical device, successfully petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to lower the weight limit for lap-band obesity surgery. In addition, the head of the FDA advisory panel petitioned by Allergan owns stock in (drum roll,…
I’d fully intended to talk about the FDA’s recent OK of lap-band surgery for smaller people, but at the end of my workday Tuesday I heard the shocking news about Elizabeth Edwards’ death, and really haven’t been able to focus on anything else, since. It wasn’t the fact she died of breast cancer I found so distracting,…
Me neither, but that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend. On Black Friday my daughter and I were out for 10 hours at the new outlets and Kenwood Mall in Cincinnati, and that evening we hit the Dayton Mall to play with the puppies at Fetch. (You know how easily a dachshund puppy could fit into the packet of my hoodie?) I…
You know how I just love studies. A new one declares just being a little overweight raises your risk of premature death. I’m thinking that if I’d read this before my after-work walkout, I’d have put in an extra mile.
All that’s missing is a white sale.
Time to switch to heavy sweats.
I am so incredibly glad Thanksgiving is over.
Most of the bad things in life, you might think, only happen to other people. Never you, because you know better. You’re responsible, careful and smart. And if, for example, you and your family must drive 500 miles to get to your mother’s house for the holiday, you’ll make sure everyone is 100 percent ready for…
I don’t know why this is all over the news, because I swear I just read about this not too long ago: A recent study shows that one in four overweight women believe they have an average figure.
I’m seriously not even trying. There’s something about The Eating Season that makes people bring in rich breads, cakes and all manner of treats for coworkers and friends. The holidays are upon us whether we think it’s too early or not, and all the Susie Homemakers of the world are positively giddy about the…
I emailed the list of grocery items I’ll need for the holiday to my sister in Dayton, and cc’d my mother. As far as I know, they completed the shopping yesterday. At least I hope they did. I’m still down for the count with this heinous cold, but I heard the grocery stores are packed today.
