This is a new weekly feature I am going to try out here. I will post on a weekend night. I may post similar or different from Ana’s Attic, depending on my weekend. This is a place to chat about, men, books, sex, love, kids, shopping….whatever. We can “weigh in” and discuss successes and failures, play games, brag about your kids, and talk frankly. Nothing is off limits! Do you have a suggestion? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, I am just going to weigh in.
I suck. I couldn’t even get through a week of dieting! WTF? I walked one day, rode my recumbent bike one day, and drank a lot of water and ate right for 2 days. Yay me. I tried to get to the diet Dr. on Thursday to re-start the Smart for Life diet, but didn’t get out on time (I was reading a really good book, Fall from Grace by Christine Zolendz (see my review here)) so I never really got officially started.
But I’m so encouraged by all of your comments and support! It’s nice to know I’m not alone when I stand in my closet and cry. This happened last night as I was looking for something to wear to an outdoor event on a rare cold evening in Florida. I had to wear a certain T-shirt that already makes me look like a house, but adding a long sleeve shirt under it– I looked like a house with a 3 car garage.
I will say this–I had a really good week in other ways besides the diet. My husband has been all over me, and throwing compliments my way like crazy. Maybe because I went away and he missed me? I don’t know, but I’ll take it!!! He hasn’t been able to keep his hands off me…to the point that it’s a little much. But that’s OK, it’s good exercise! REALLY GOOD exercise (teehee).
So, if you have any suggestions for a chat next week, bring it on and comment here! Have a game idea? A contest? A top ten list? Whatever, I’m open. If not, this fucked up brain of mine will come up with something.
Either way, weigh in here, and tell about last week, because we all get a fresh start when we are all Starting on Monday!
