I broke up with Scale....and hooked up with Ben & Jerry.  It was just a rebound thing. Nothing serious. But I know when I'm beat.  I gave "eating junk in moderation" a real try.  I think I did pretty good for the first 2 weeks.  And then...then...I couldn't even tell you.

I feel like a witness to a hit and run accident.  Everything was a blur. It all happened so fast.  There was a lot of screaming...

However, when I walked into BigLots and walked out with a bag of salt & vinegar potato chips and a family pack of Rice Krispy treats, I knew it was time to hit the reset button.  Let's just start over.

Hello Fat Smash Diet: Phase 1..... it's been a while. Good to see you again.

That means I'm having this for breakfast.

Steel Cut Oats with Berries

I made Split Pea Soup, Avgolemono Soup, and Coconut Lime Soup for lunch. And I'm having veggie stir fry for dinner.

Basically the most exciting thing in my lunch box is this....


These little guys look like the love child of an orange and an olive. They look like super tiny oranges.

And you eat the skin and everything. They are super sour yet sweet.  Kinda like a healthy WarHead.

On a happy note, my 50 Pound Reward is HERE!!!

It's so pretty!  I admit that I have a hard time with self control (Big surprise, I know...) and I did wear it already.  Ironically, the clasp kept coming undone....making the watch almost fly off my wrist a few times.  I brought it to a really cool jewelry store up the street and he tightened the clasp (for freeee) and that fixed it.  But I tucked it safely in my jewelry drawer.

Hopefully come June 1st when Scale and I reunite, I will be down to 225 pounds and can slap that sucker on my wrist!!


  1. I've seen kumquats around, but never gotten to try them. Sour yet sweet sounds brilliant!

    Love the watch!

    Now you're back on track, and that is all that matters. Don't look back!

  2. Very cute watch! I've never seen or ate a kumquat. Are they good? I don't think I could eat the skin.

  3. Loving the rebound joke but I do really hope you are back in with the good old scales heehee Everyone wobbles, so good luck to you :D


Here's your chance to address that Pink Elephant in the room....
