Friday Confessional: Weight Smaight

Hi guys.  Aren't you sick of me yet?!  I mean I've been here every day for weeks now!  Mad props to those of you sticking with me.  Maybe I should make some cookies or something.  Anyway, onto this week's confessional.

  • I have fallen off the wagon.
  • Again.
  • I was doing so dang good on the diet,
  • losing weight
  • looking good better
  • but I only have so much willpower I suppose.
  • And, after all, I do have my reasons,
  • and they are pretty good, I think.
  • I mean for one, for awhile there I was eating only shakes and yogurt
  • as a result of the wisdom teeth removal.
  • So, perhaps, I lost a few lbs because I wasn't eating regularly
  • and then when I resumed, I gained 'em right back.
  • So technically, it's like they were always there.
  • Yeah?
  • I think I'm going with that.
  • Plus, well, I'm basically eating crap.
  • And by crap, I mean crap.
  • Not poo
  • Crap.
  • So really, what do I expect?
  • Bah it will all come out in the wash, I suppose.
  • Speaking of eating like crap, Thanksgiving is coming up
  • I'm excited.
  • Big family event this year.
  • I love it!
  • We seriously are a troop.
  • We have to have dinner at a church.
  • I've got 8 aunts and uncles.
  • And 48-ish cousins
  • plus spouces
  • and kids.
  • It's a PARTY!!
  • And I haven't seen a lot of them in a really long time!
  • So yipee!
  • I think Izacc and I are making some crafts tomorrow to bring.
  • You know, some place cards, maybe a turkey cup or something.
  • I don't know, the kid has been dying to do them all week.
  • I've been putting him off
  • not because I don't want to do it
  • but because I'm afraid of the lifespan of such things in our house.
  • Baby Ian is a bit of a terrorist
  • albeit a cute terrorist
  • a terrorist nonetheless.
  • He likes to rip Izacc's preschool work 
  • and pull the glued on parts off
  • and basically torments him relentlessly.
  • Baby Ian.
  • Izacc's school is having a freaking sweet Thanksgiving Feast on Monday.
  • I have to bring 10 lbs of diced potatoes.
  • I looked at the menu.
  • I don't think there was a thing on there that the boy will eat.
  • And I think he's supposed to dress up like a pilgrim or Indian.
  • I think he should be a turkey.
  • I suggested it.
  • He rolled his eyes and said, "Maw-hm! (two syllables)  Turkey don't wear clothes!"
  • True dat, boy, they sure don't.
  • Good point.
  • The boy's four year old I tell you.
  • It's really all downhill from here.
  • Oh boy, I'm doomed.
  • Where did I put those Doritos?!
So go read.  And play.  You won't regret it!  Promise!!

Who diets during the Holidays? Sheez
Just be like all us normal people and do the whole New Years Resolution weight loss thing on Jan 1.

And just for the record, your boys are simply adorable! I raised three of those little monsters into adult hood....and survived!!

Them as well as me!

10 pounds of potatoes? Sorry :( It sounds like your family Thanksgiving will be rocking! As for the diet, just give your self a break, you're only human, and much is being demanded of you, and you can only do SO'll be okay, I promise :)

When they do Thanksgiving feasts at kids' schools they really should just serve mac n cheese and fruit snack. Much easier, and the kids will actually eat it!

STOP IT!! You have to give me just a second during your posts to catch my breath. Good grief lady. . . have you ever thought about doing stand up? I love you. And I also need to say that I have been frequenting your blog - even though I don't comment. I love you and I've always thought you were pretty amazing, but now. . . well, let's just say, you're SUPERFANTABULASTIC! I love you and I always will. Cousins. . . sisters. . . friends. . . always.
