I’ve been participating in Weight Watchers for almost 2 months and love it. Initially I joined to help gain some control in the eating department; my marriage has been hitting snag after snag and I was attempting to eat my way through the rough patch. I kept telling myself that I’d eat better the next day, but I’d have one last hoorah. Let’s just say I had many hoorahs and until I joined Weight Watchers, not very many control days. I really like the system, not only does it help me control my urge to partake of all things deep fried but I’ve lost almost 12 pounds! I’m officially a size 6! I even had to buy a new bra today. What I’m most happy about though, is that I’m making much healthier choices about what I eat and how much. I’ve actually fallen rather hard for clementines and roasted cauliflower!
I’m reading a book about Ronald Reagan this week. It’s by a man named Dinesh and from what I can gather everyone thought Reagan was a complete idiot but he was an idiot with many visions. Stranger still, the author is a fan of President Reagan and also seems to think he was slow but lofty. Now, I’m not done with the book so maybe Dinesh decides Reagan is more than just a pretty face, time will tell. I also have decided that Sarah Palin is no Ronald Reagan. She’s like a card board cut out of Ronald Reagan without the substance and personality. She doesn’t do him justice.
I’ve been working on hamsterbeans this week, a quick and vastly amusing project.
