good morning .... I mean afternoon

I had many errands to do today and finally I'm done. Today my car window decided not to go up and down any more (of course this happened this morning) shortly before it was 11 am. why on a hot day I have no ideal, it could have waited until this weekend. I mean really why couldn't it have been a bit more patient for me?
But that aside today I had some running around to do and I had to join weight watcher cause my doc said so in a very nice way. Ugh let the pissing and morning begin. I'm not very excited about it but we will see is all I'm going to say. I will say that I KNOW that it is unrealistic for them to tell me I need to weigh 111 to 147 pounds uh... on what planet? Preferably one with zero gravity I'm sure. I mean if I eat once every thee or four weeks maybe it could happen. The last time I weighed 130 I was a junior in high school and about 5'1 maybe 5'2 and I was a size 10 but that was before my "girls" came along. Yes then I was not flat chested but a modest c not what i am now. Now I know one thing for sure I'm not going to get that skinny cause I'm not having plastic surgery to remove the "extra". I'm a chicken when it comes to needles, operating rooms and hospitals oh my. I just want to keep from gaining anything and if I loose some weight in the mix OK great that would be very very nice. I hope this works I'm not a fan of un natural foods I only eat whole wheat breads, and try not to eat white flour pasta, I only use olive oil, and things of that nature. I just don't know if this is going to work, I'm allergic to most of the sweeteners because they cause massive very bad headaches. We will see time will tell, of course I'll give you my opinion on it in the future but for now we will sit tight.

Bendy flexie ruler- as most of you know bo bunny makes the cutest pink flex ruler well at 11.99 a pop. And at that price I've not bought one, and don't intend to for a while. I'm on a scrapbook purchasing sabbatical until September 9th (self in forced of course). Any who at office depot they sell a blue bendie flex ruler for 7.99 so when my time is up that is where I'm headed. just thought I would share the knowledge.

OK not that I wanted today to be focused on the human body but I'm going to comment on something I've seen the last few trips to the mall that is irritating me to the un tempted degree. I'm a big woman I know it and don't deny it. I also don't think I'm a prude when it comes to modern fashion some skin is acceptable. What is it with overweight people letting there belly stick out between there shirt and pants at the waist line area? I'm not talking about the I'm young and don't know any better I'm talking about the 40 year old woman who is letting 2 inches of her belly show. I can not stand it. I cover my navel and proudly cover it. I don't think that anyone needs to see it and I don't want to share it and I don't want to see yours. A summer or to back a cute commercial was out that featured cute attractive talking/singing, that was great but if your my size you do not have any need to show the world you belly. Now if you are pregnant and showing your belly to your family that is the one and only exception I can think of at this point in time. Remember my belly button ideal for retreat and then one of you very wise women said "I'm not showing my belly" I said OK I forgot about that part no way am I going to0 show my belly so keep your belly to yourselves BG .

Your cracking me up!!

I'm right there with you - I'm doing the SB diet and joining BG Women's Fitness Center-same shopping center as HL. So I have no excuses not to get in there a couple times of week.

Have you got any print cartridges that are empty? OD will give you $3.00 credit for every cartridge you turn in. However, there are a few exclusions on the brands they take.

Angie, drop me an email and tell me when/ where you are attending WW. I might be motivated to re-join if I could do it with a friend. A few years ago I lost 75 pounds and achieved life time membership. I gained it all back with the KY move, I am such a stress eater, and I lost my support system. It's scary, but very do-able. Let me know.

As for bo-bunny ruler, I have one if you ever want to borrow it. They are used for drafting, so you can probably find one cheaper at the hardware or art store as well. I have never used mine, but maybe I'll be motivated this weekend!

Bellys showing, ugh. I am very self contious of my weight and cover up as much as possible. You did see the news, KY is in the top 4 overweight states...along with Louisianna, Mississippi, and TN....all the places that have the best BBQ!
