Family Support?

Monday, January 14, 2008

My brother and I helped my daughter move to Atlanta this weekend. He drove the loaded cargo van down while my daughter and I followed in her car. All was well, on the trip down but the trip back HOLY HAMBURGER BATMAN! My brother is a big guy himself, with a ROBUST appetite. At every stop for gas, he bought snacks. Honey buns, ice cream sandwiches, candy bars, freaking Yoo-Hoo. Who the hell still drinks Yoo-Hoo any more? Apparently my brother thatís who! A 45 year old man should not be drinking freaking Yoo-Hoo....COME ON! He also pulled into fast food restaurants getting large juicy hamburgers, fries, shakes and pies for dessert. I tried not to drool as the yummy scents of salty fries and greasy cheese burgers drifted over to my side of the van. I kept my eyes on the road and ate my yogurt oat bar trying to imagine it was a whopper while fantasying a stiff wind whipping into the van and ripping the food from by brothers hands. But hey, I made it! Didnít cheat not once! Super size that McDonalds! Having it my way Burger King! HA!

    Oh isn't it sooooo hard to stick to your diet when others around you are eating something that smells sooooo good and tastes yummy too????

I am pleased that you were able to stay strong enough not to cheat.

Keep up the good work.

    WOOOHOOOO! Good for you! That's an accomplishment, passing the fast foods and snacks on a road trip while someone else in the vehicle is partaking!
Good job!
