Loser Mom FAIL

Up three more pounds.

I am officially four pounds lighter than the heaviest I have ever been (not including being pregnant with twins.)

Maybe bathing suit season will get me off of my fat ass.

Does anyone have any tips on how they get motivated to start a diet?

My friend, it isn't coincidence that foodieism rhymes with Judaism. Happy Passover!

When Passover hits, I keep it for the entire 8 days, I clear out all the bread, pasta and yeast from our pantry. For weeks prior to Passover I search online and in my cookbooks for Passover recipes. But we don't keep Kosher the rest of the year, I don't use different plates than the ones we use every day. We've even welcomed tortilla's into our life as "unleavened bread."

I've also been known to announce we are having Sephardic Night so we can go ahead and eat corn and rice during Passover which is something Ashkenazi Jews don't customarily do.

So it was no wonder I had the following exchange with my younger son today as we were discussing tonight's dinner menu:

Son Two: Can we make Shrimp Scampi for dinner?
Me: Sure. But we're going to make the recipe from Cooking Light.
Son Two: It's the recipe using the long flat noodles. Right?
Me: Yes, but we're having the Scampi over rice because we can't have noodles since it's still Passover.
Son Two: stares at me. Hard.

Suffice it to say Matzo Ball Soup made it back onto the menu this evening. And I even made it with broth that did not include "yeast extract."

I am a walking, talking and cooking contradiction.

Trying to Get Back on The Wagon

Spring Break... it was so easy not to exercise.

I was at my brother's house, driving 10 hours each way, eating McDonalds. Ugh.

Then I went to the WNBA Draft and I ate pizza and cheese steak. It was wonderful, but I think I need to get back on the wagon.

I'm scared to get on my scale. According to my brother's scale I lost 14 pound in two days just by eating McDonalds and bagels. But if he is telling the truth and it is actually an issue of eights looking like sixes in the tens place I may have gained six pounds which is a much more likely scenario.


Jillian, I'm coming home to you. Please don't hurt me to much.

How NOT to Do It

I touched on this issue briefly on my personal blog, but I would like to talk about it a little bit here as well.

If you are trying to lose weight, or even if you are merely trying not to be obscenely bloated, I am going to recommend not eating an entire bag of Cheddar Chex Mix in a single sitting.

Really you shouldn't polish one of these bad boys off in an entire day.

Holy Sodium, Batman!

It turns out that Chex Mix is one of my trigger foods. You know, you start eating it and you can't stop?

(My other trigger foods? Doritos, Tootsie Rolls, bacon, cheese and crackers, Oreos, french fries, pizza, brownies, cheetohs... the list goes on an on).

I know what I have to do. I cannot have this food in my house anymore. It IS that simple.

And take it from me. It tasted good while it lasted, but I feel like a pile a shit right about now, mentally and physically.

Now, if you will excuse me, I am off to drink my 30th glass of water this afternoon. I can't imagine why I am so thirsty.
