Two Words

Slim Fast.

Strikes fear into your heart doesn't it? I know. Mine too. Except, it's not that bad really. Mostly becuase I'm not really on a diet, I'm just on a quest to not be so fucking hungry. I figure that if I down a Slim*Fast every now and again, maybe I won't snack so much when I'm at the office. The office has this funny way of making me eat when I shouldn't. I think it's something to do with mundane day to day duties that suck the life out of me and the thought of a Snickers bar is the only that gets me through the day. Anyway, we'll see how it goes.

Also, I quit drinking. Full stop. That should reduce my weekly caloric intake by about a million calories (not quite, but almost. I love my wine). It's okay though, because I'm hoping I'll be pregnant in a little bit and I'm hoping that I will feel better and maybe my boobs will start shrinking (until I get pregnant, at which point I assume they will blot out the sun with their enormity) and maybe I'll sleep better and maybe I'll stop spilling wine all over the neighbors six-year old child (true story). Here's hoping.

Oh, and our vacation was completely lovely. Pictures eventually, maybe from Brett? Although he is suffering from post-vacation cold/immobility due to searing pain in his buttocks, so maybe after that's over (seriously, the poor guy is in a lot of pain and please send him get well thoughts).

Over and out good buddies, for now.

The other nice thing about quitting drinking before you're pregnant is that if you ARE pregnant and not telling people yet, nobody can guess based on the fact that you aren't drinking.

I've never drunk a Slim Fast milkshake but I have eaten their bars and they're pretty good. And filling.

I hope Brett feels better soon!

Well, if I can't find anybody on a 40-day juice fast, I guess I'll have to settle for this. Heh.

I'd like to hear more about this ASS injury too. Um. I think.

More frightening than the words Slim Fast are Stop Drinking.

Homer quit drinking too. That's the one and only thing on his weight-loss plan. He's a beer man, so I suspect he'll be down 20 lbs by the end of the month!

I need to start drinking more so I can stop drinking and lose weight easily. That's a plan, right?

I want to ask about the searing buttock pain, but I'm thinking that I will then look like I haven't been reading the previous posts, and I have, I have.
