i, too, really feel your response to the diet police article! my mother did basically the same thing growing up - so rather than having a bit of dessert after dinner like my sister, for fear of her comments i'd gorge on an entire package of oreos in secret. she still does it - i was bragging about a 6-mile walking/biking/obstacle course that i'm about to do with a friend, and how excited we were. what part did my mom choose to latch onto? that part where i mentioned we got free beer afterwards. 'hmmmmm. i thought you were running to lose weight.' YES MOTHER, a few beers after 6 miles of physical activity will absolutely derail all of my weight loss efforts.
mother knows best, huh? best of luck to you in all of your weight loss efforts, it was just really nice to read about someone who experienced pretty much the same thing that i did. 1915 days ago
Hi Heather! I'm here to encourage you to blog more! I read your Culinary Adventures of a Recovering Fat Girl blog and your SparkPeople blog and I love your writing! If you do get enough material to write a Valerie Bertinelli type tell-all, I will buy it!
Please write more! I'll be looking for you on the message boards, because it looks like you have great ideas for recipes. I'll also be waiting to read more blog posts.
Great Ideas on the Guacamole! And other snacks! However got a good kick for ya try avacado, boiled egg (whites only), tomatoes 1/2 c, cilantro, a sqeeze lemon, and fresh minced onion (to taste) and salt! OMG, it was killer at my last pot luck at work! Everyone loved it! A girl told me, I don't even eat avacados and I LOVE your guacamole! Jeje 2680 days ago
