What, You're Still Reading This Stuff?

Well, I’m not ready for a serious update yet. But I will say I have tried hard to be more aware of what I am eating. And why.
Mindless consuming seems to be my biggest issue but bad food choices rank right up there too.

We were more active than usual thanks to Cousin’s visit. Tikki definitely benefited. We did take Cousin to Peter’s Drive In before he hopped on his motorcycle and rode back home. A trip to our fair city is not complete without a trip to Peter’s. But I didn't polish off the left-over french fries and onion rings. I threw them out.

Cousin froze on the way home but at least he beat the rainstorm that descended within a couple hours of his departure. Cold isn't great but soaking wet is miserable! Especially at 110 km per hour.

He plans to be back in 2 weeks so we’re all looking forward to that. Maybe I will even have a noticeable weight loss by then. We will even get some fun activities lined up. And the crap room cleaned up. And achieve world peace.

I always wonder what to say when a big person loses a small amount of weight. Let’s see, I started at 206, lost 4 lbs so now what do you say?

“You’re a rake, baby!”
“Careful you don’t lose too much!”
“As it turns out, you don’t have 'such a pretty face'.”

Anyhoo, I will weigh in tomorrow with real numbers. I also promise you, the whole world wide web, in addition to all my other pledges which, let's face it, may or may not come to fruition, this week I will learn to post photos. And edit my previous posts so they are all the same font and text size. And clean up the typos. And that world peace thingy too.

No, really, I will.

If my calculations are correct, my apidexin should be here by Aug. 8th.

Look Out Internet!
There's a skinny girl trapped in here, dying to get out. I should know, I'm the one who ate her.


  1. Whty is cousin coming when Dad got the speakers hung?? Sorry, forgot to ask when we talked.

  2. Because we wouldn't give him back his keys until he promised. And because we begged him.

    We begged him because we thought it would be nice to have a young person around to spend time with, visit and go do things.

  3. Ahhh, threats, witholding and intimidation.

    That's my girl!
