If there was a fruit topping on that cupcake it would have been all right. I think vaughnrl2003 has a good idea. I think I could stick to a diet like that until I lost the 30 extra lbs I am carrying around. Mmmmm bacon and cheese.
I did not understand the complaints about portion sizes until we started travelling into the States. Then I understood. A couple we spend time with after our annual conference in Phoenix usually order one meal and split it. Just wished my wife and I liked the same foods so we could do that. Actually we did try that once with a roast beef order at the Keg – even with half the meal each neither one of us could finish our plate. Yup, portion sizes are frequently WAY to big.
Time to gear up for a great weekend!
You are not alone. My wife eats almost constantly – at least twice as much as I do in a day – but does not gain weight. Fortunately she is in the 110 lb range which is not too thin for her. I suspect the calories she eats are somehow transferred to me.
All this leaves the question – how do you pull yourself up by your bootstraps if you don’t wear boots?
That is enough thought for a beautiful mid week day. I hope everyone is enjoying today.
We are lucky our neighbours are a little further away. Plus we build a cedar hut around the tub – lots of windows but there are shades on them just in case. I don’t worry as I am usually in the tub around midnight and keep the lights off so I can see the stars – at least when it is not cloudy.
Plain water and celery sticks is a start but I doubt it would have much of a long term effect for Cathy and her friends.
Have a great Tuesday!
Wearing a suit in the hot tub is only done when we have guests sharing the tub.
Overeating when stressed is the cause of my extra weight. When I try to eat smaller meals (the only diet that works for me) my wife, of good Germanic descent, worries that I am not eating enough. I know she comes by that honestly as her mother (who I miss as much as my mother) was not happy unless everyone was eating. Guess that came out of the lack of food when she was a little girl growing up in Germany during the 2nd World War.
Happy Monday again. Please enjoy the day.
A mother (or father) who is always there for you is a good parent. Of course being there for you might mean administering punishment when required.
Happy Mothers’ Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and future mothers – that covers almost 50% of the worlds population.For the rest of us, enjoy this fine Sunday.
vaughnrl2003 is right! Mothers’ Day, Religious holidays, National holidays, vacation time, and any other cause for celebration is definitely not a time for a diet. Of course, on some of those days, chocolate (substitute your favourite poison) has no calories anyway.
Have a good Saturday!
