Parley Tuesday

No screenshot again because I am still not wearing my bodybugg. I did well on food and activity yesterday until dinner time. I was tired and hungry and not in the mood to cook so I ended up going to McDonald's and having a burger and fries. Blech!! This is only the second time this year I have had a fast food burger so I don't feel too totally guilty about it but yuck yuck yuck. My tongue felt like it was coated in lard. The burger was good but I should have gone without the fries. It was definitely a self-sabotaging move but it is done and over with. Hopefully the scale goddess won't be too harsh on me tomorrow.

Thank you for all the comments and support regarding the Dave situation. Shelley, yours especially hit home. The gist of what she said was "I know you know this, but you are not responsible for where Dave lives, and if it is going to be weird for you then stand up for yourself...after all, if you don't put yourself first then WHO will?" I do have a tendency to put other peoples needs and wants before mine so I almost feel selfish you know what I mean?

Totally unrelated but there is this handsome gentleman who started chatting with me on Facebook. We have been messaging back and forth for a few weeks. He is my age, he an engineer and did I say he was handsome? He lives in southern California though... He mentioned coming up for a visit at Christmas. Holy Shamolians! How scary is that??? I have never met anyone in person that I met online. I think I would be open to it and it would be a nice distraction huh?

Reminder that today is the last day for Katie J's 1st Giveaway. I will announce the winner in tomorrow's post. Until next time...


  1. Hiya... If it gives you confidence, I met Craig online! And he's FAR more handsome than you'd think from his pics! Poor guy is NOT photogenic! lol

    Shelley is right... If you're the type to worry about what people think of you (or you're ultra-caring) it's easier to put the needs of others before yours... But I personally think you'll be better able to help Dave (if that's what YOU want to do) if he's not 'invading your territory'...

    Bye for now

  2. I've been in the junk food situation before. You want it, you kid yourself you need it and when you eat the thing you are beyond disappointed!

    Handsome man? That's got to be good! Looking forward to seeing how that develops...

    It's not selfish to care about yourself and at times it is essential to put yourself first. Dave, i'm guessing, is a big boy now...

  3. Hey Katie,
    Don't sweat the burger and fries... oh wait... do sweat it... sweat it out that is! Just get in a little extra exercise this week to make up for it. I know you said you don't feel bad about it, which you shouldn't, but for me, even if I say it, I still think about it. But if I exercise just a bit more everyday, even just ten minutes, it adds up to an extra hour for the week!

    You're doing a great job... keep it up!

  4. Hey Katie,
    I'm just catching up. Sorry to hear you're going through some rough stuff right now. I hope things work out for you and Dave. Just stand up for yourself, and don't back down! You deserve happiness.

  5. I met my hubby online 10 years ago...GOOD LUCK!!

  6. Hi Katie. I just left a comment about Dave on the last post. Make sure you're doing what you really want to do and not what you feel you ought to do.

    Bodybugg! That's all I'm saying ...

  8. I met my hubby online and we've been married for 11 years this coming valentine's day. ;)

  9. Katie J, you really are on your Way now, girl! That is wonderful.


  10. One of my good friends met her husband in one of those dating services. They've been married forever. Husband and I knew the moment we met we were stuck together. :)

  11. Wow, I'm glad what I said got through and please, please remember it, my friend. Hugs to you - and woot on the handsome gentleman! I know several people who have met online and had great relationships!

  12. McDonalds is tempting. But watcht he documentary Supersize Me and you will never eat McDonalds ever again! Thank you for following my blog www.twochins.blogspot.com. I look forward to reading more of your journey.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
