I figured I should post something since Norma gave me such a nice shout out. I have no brain power to come up with a post. Allan to the rescue! Allan listed some questions for FMT (Friend Making Tuesday, good thing cuz I prefer to make my friends on Tuesdays).

1) I am how many years old, weigh this much, and aspire to weigh this much....

         I am 43. I weigh 257. I started at 317 on February 27, 2012. My doctor told me he would be   happy if I weighed 170-180. I really have no idea what my goal weight is. Right now I am aiming for 175 and will reevaluate when I get there. FYI, I am 5'10".

2) I am following a great plan, and this is what I do....

        I try to eat foods that don't have ingredients. You know- chicken, eggs, pears, carrots, romaine, etc. I drink a swimming pool worth of water every day.

3) When faced with a decision of whether to eat something in moderation or abstain, I choose to....

     Dude, I weigh 257 pounds, I have to abstain. I know I am not strong enough for moderation right now. If I eat some crap it is very hard for me to get back on track. I admit it, I am weak when it comes to food.

4) I am employed as this, or I am not working but used to be this...

        I am a bookkeeper/accountant. In two months I will have that piece of paper that says I am an accountant. Never mind I've been doing it for 17 years.

5) I have pets, and they are, named....

      I don't have a pet right now. We had to put down our beloved Boxer mix, Bernice, a few months ago. I still miss her. She was the world's best dog, there will never be another dog like her.

6) My favorite snack food is.... and I can eat this many of them...

       I love anything chocolate. I can eat a ton of it. Just because I can doesn't mean I should.

7) I blog because......

         I've been blogging for years but only since February here. I always said blogging was free therapy. I've got a great group of blog buds whom I refer to as my tribe (in my head I call some of them "mah bitchez" I don't do that here because I don't want to offend anyone). I love the support I have here.

Uh, yeah...the end.


  1. It's nice to meet you ;)

    PS you know pears are full of sugar, yes?

  2. " I try to eat foods that don't have ingredients." That's an excellent description.. and it made me LOL ! :oD

    Pears.. Sugar.. ba ha ha ha ha. smack! smack! smack! goes my head.

  3. Thanks for stopping by. Hi Beth. I too abstain, I just can't do in moderation. Someday hopefully. I like your no ingredient foods.
    Take care and God Bless!!

  4. I too eat foods without ingredients, washed down with a swimming pool of water!

  5. LOL at the swimming pool of water...I'm only drinking a bathtub's worth but I think I flush the toilet a swimming pool's worth of wate a day because of it! :)

  6. I agree with the free therapy comment. I have been strengthened many times just reading what others write. We can't have too many friends can we? Take care.

  7. Love it -- well said :) And I totally agree with the free therapy part. I think that's why I blog as well, at least partway.
