Wii Have a Wiinner

Wii finally got around to picking a wiinner.

* Not sponsored by Doritos. We needed a bag. Fortunately Unfortunately there were still some chips left and we were forced to handle the situation as we saw fit.

We'll diet next year. Wii hope you will join us.

Happy New Year to all of you other losers out there in Loser Mom Land!

The Suspense is Killing Us

I just wanted to let you all know we did not forget about our contest. The holidays seem to have gotten in the way of Devra and I actually getting together to pick a winner.

We will be picking the winning of our Wii Fit tomorrow morning if all goes well.

We may even get some video if we're lucky.

And organized.

Good luck to everyone who entered!

Wii Want To Know What Inspires You To Exercise Contest

Look, regardless of whether or not any of us are observing a holiday, the foods are out there and on the table. Pie Hole Control will be challenged daily, if not hourly or by the minute. At work, at home. Even in your own head as we think "What about just one cookie? I can get on the treadmill tonight and do extra minutes."

Only those extra minutes become added to the 24 hours that are already spoken for by other things we're doing. And since no one has figured out how to create a 25th hour, those extra minutes for exercise? Non existent. Total fantasy.

So, we want to know how you get inspired to work out. How do you keep the love alive for exercise and not get bored out of your freakin' mind? Is it music? A special routine? A mantra? Something you read? Heard? Saw that scared the ever-livin' crap out of you? What?? We want to know! (And we bet others will benefit too!)

This is a contest, the Grand Prize is a brand new in the box Wii Fit.

Please make sure to leave us your email address in addition to your inspirational comment. All entries will be put into a Giant Plastic Measuring cup my son used to wear on his head as a hat and we will draw a winner at random. Contest ends December 22nd at 6PM EST.

Inspire us! NOW!

Need dose of reality? Roll the tape! (and a little something about a contest)

I can sit and deny it as much as I like, but there is nothing, but nothing that will bring reality right into my face like seeing myself on film. I understand the camera adds pounds, but not 75 of them. More like 10. So when I recently watched myself on the PBS Youtube channel:

I sound fine and Kristen makes for a fabulous interviewer, but was horrified by my appearance. Not because I'm vain, this is a health issue. There is no way I can continue to be this heavy. I am risking a stroke ya'll.

Time to take action. And I don't mean breaking into my dentist's office, holding the spit sucker to his neck and demanding he wire my jaws shut for the holiday season. I'd probably get arrested. And if I were to be arrested? We all know Jenny Craig isn't a jail house caterer. Besides, I've seen many episodes of Dateline on ID as well as 48 Hours on We . People who go to jail gain weight. I know they have AA meetings in prison, but Weight Watcher's? I doubt it. Nope, I needed to get me some conviction, but not of a felonious sort. So I made like a Nike ad, and Just Did It.

Today I used the Wii Fit to jog for 10 minutes. It's a beginning...

Next week wii'll bii having a contest and give-away. Sii you here next wiik!

Trigger Foods

Trigger foods, we all have them.

You know, the food that you eat some of and then you can't stop eating? They trigger a binge.

Potato chips are the perfect example. Lays has a whole ad campaign based on this concept.

In fact, I'm pretty sure the foods on Weight Watchers core program are foods that don't cause binging. I think that is why they are considered safe.

I do actually have a point here.

Cereal is a trigger food for me. I'm not sure why. And it seems like it can be any kind of cereal. Count Chocula (my favorite), Cheerios, Corn Flakes - it doesn't matter. I can just eat a small serving of cereal because I am not hungry and I know I need to eat breakfast and then I am famished. I want three more bowls.

Cereal is my perfect appetizer.

Does this happen to anyone else? Can anyone explain this?
