She didn't say anything about black and white cookies

I was bitching a couple weeks ago about how I wanted to lose some weight, and my friend, Sarah, who is one of those annoying health nuts who never gains a pound, told me I should:

Give up alcohol
Excercise more
Give up breads
Give up fried food

So, of course, I have given up breads and fried food. (Which, by the way, is killing me - I love my French fries, and I love bread of all types - French, Italian, bagels, Portugese rolls, garlic toast - mmm).

Anyway, I have to admit, it might be working. I put on a pair of khakis today that I usually never bothered wearing a belt with, and I've been walking around all morning holding them up because it feels like they're going to slide off.

Can you imagine if I actually did give up booze and started excercising more? I'd be a Greek God! But, the chances of that happening are about as likely as W. getting inducted into Mensa.

And the no bread or fries thing is probably only going to last another week anyway. I had Italian for dinner last night, and I wanted garlic bread so bad it wasn't even funny.

I think I need to start watching what I eat. I had my thyroid removed in October, and I no longer have that amazingly high metabolism that made all of my friends jealous. :(

I couldn't stand not having bread, though. And give up beer? Fugghedaboudit. (Insert Bally's snarky comment here.) When I was in Chicago, I had Fat Tire! I think it's the first time it's been East of Colorado. I was in heaven.

Good luck on losing weight, J!

I'm guessing it means something different in Spanish, but I wonder if someone should tell that guy (girl?) from Portugal that's maybe not the best name to use around this blog!:)

JBK - you should give up dairy too if you take it. That adds pounds.

How much do you weigh JBK?

I can't even look at french fries without putting on weight. I feel your pain! :)

J said...

ann b. that is, of course, classified information. But I will say I weigh more than 160 but less than 180. I just want to lose about 10-15 pounds - then I will be back to eating fries and bread so fast your head will spin.

I lost 8 pounds last year and had to go out and buy all new clothes. And I loved having to do that! :)

JBK unless your like 5'4 you shouldn't lose 10-15 pounds. That's a lot! But you should eat healthier just because it's better for you.

smooshie, I think I saw before he's 5'10" but I agree with you, that's a lot to lose in one go.

Lotr, it's a fantastic amber ale (beer) that until recently, you could only get in the Southwest. I fell in love with it when I lived in Tucson. Everytime I go to NM to visit my dad, I bring cases home. I just hope we get it in MN soon.

I've had Fat Tire too, Not a Hipster. Lotr it IS great, think maybe Bass Ale from England if you've ever had that ? only not so heavy.
