I should be making big journalistic bucks!

Click on this link to E! On line and read the article about Katie Holmes...if you read my previous blog, you will love this:

I posted a rant about the mis-use of the word amazing. It means, and I quote from Websters, "to affect with surprise or great wonder". Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise use this word alot about each other. I have 'great wonder' for the idiotic way that Tom Cruise is behaving.

So, next time I have a great rant, I'm going to submit it to E! Entertainment and start my new career as a journalist...and then I'm going to sell everyone my ocean front property in Arizona....

Humorous item from newspaper...

Gotta pass this one on. I couldn't find the link, but weekly in the GF Tribune, they post things found on the newstand...the 'Trash Talk' from the tabloids. The 'obligatory bizarro story of the week' was this:
Mini pirates attack ship in a bottle'...isn't that a hilarious mental picture?! Loved that one! BB

Before picture....

Here is a picture of big beautiful me. In the next few days I will post my eating plan and do my first official weigh in and begin my journey to a slimmer me. A year ago I started doing this and kind of went off the wagon, so this time I hope to find a permanent solution instead of a temporary 4 or 5 month solution.

When I was in high school I weighed between 98 and 105. I stayed pretty much around 105 until I had my first child. Then it was around 115, which was still a pretty good weight for me. After child number 2, I was up between 125-130. Every year or two I'd creep up a few pounds, until now, and I'm pushing 170. If I was 6 feet tall, that'd probably be okay, but I'm 5'3", hopefully I can get some will power and find a solution that I can live with.

My biggest challenges: I love Coca cola and I hate salads. I also crave chocolate and love fast food. So, I have pretty much laid it all out there for the whole world. Probably not a great idea, but this is for me...not anyone who has a snide comment.

So, anyway, that's where I am at. BB

All I want for Christmas is a new ride!

Ran across this awhile ago, and thought, 'I wish my kids were little again...I'd love to do this'. This is an example of what my car looks like now:

And this is an example of my DREAM CAR:

Isn't that classic? I love it! Someone could make a fortune on customized Little Tyke Coupes! You could have the most stylin' 3 year old on the block!

So, I am wondering if there are other creative people out there posting great things on the internet. Whoever did are VERY TALENTED!

Finally done with my shopping!

I am finally done with my shopping. My Dad was the hardest to buy for. I'd think of something, search it out, and then, he won't like that. Then I start over. Ended up going to a bunch of different stores, and then went back to the first one and got his gift. It's actually kind of for everybody. My parents will be spending Christmas Day at our house with my husband and 2 girls, so I got my Dad a Texas Hold 'Em Plug & Play game so everyone can play poker with him.

I added a weight loss tickler to my blog. Right now it says I haven't lost any's a good thing I didn't let it gain, or I'd be going up...up...UP! So, after the holidays are over, I'll repost my eating plan rules and begin, and hopefully I will see that tickler steadily move!

I will also post a 'before' picture once I go back to work and start my plan. Then you hopefully will be able to see the incredible shrinking woman!

Good morning to all my new buddies!

I think the hardest part of starting a blog is finding a user name and title that hasn't already been taken. I must have tried 10 names before I got one that would work. So, if you think that my post name and blog name are pretty corney, well they are because all the good ones were already taken!

So, what is this all about? Whatever I decide to post. After the new year, it will be a log of my battle with dieting. Last year I was fortunate enough to lose 15 pounds on an eating plan that I kind of worked up on my own. Unfortunately, I have gained back 10 of those 15 pounds, because I haven't been able to keep up with the dieting and exercising. This time, I am determined to modify what I have done in the past to make it last.

I also have a family and I work full time, so I will probably blog about those also. So, be prepared for just about anything! bestbuddie!
