Visit Scissors Paper Keyboard for My Guest Post

Veggie Hot Pocket

Today I’m guest posting over at Scissors, Paper, Keyboard for my friend Sherry who is on a quest to loose weight.  Heck, I’m on that same quest.

Sherry and I have known each other for years — meeting through PRSA in our professional lives.  On a personal level she understands my dry sense of humor, which is relief because I know I don’t have to worry that she’s going to take offense if I say something flippant. She gets me.

Back in the days we sipped on shakes from Sonic as we studied for an exam. Today we sip on nutritious smoothies as we meet up on-line and conspire about life. So why don’t you join us…just click here..and discover why Sherry makes me laugh. And as a bonus, you’ll find my recipe for Veggie Hot Pockets on her blog.

My Sunday Confession

Rosemary Garlic Duo Pizza is oh, so hard to resist.

Since the beginning of the year I’ve been trying to loose weight, and it hasn’t been easy.

It started off with a bet between my husband, sister-in-law and brother-in-law. Then my friend joined in. We’ve all been using the LoseIt app to help track our calorie in take and exercise. I’ve been trying to stay below 1600 calories a day.

Since then my husband and friend have lost 19 and 15 pounds respectitvely. Me five. I keep losing a pound, then gaining two. Bouncing up and down the five pound scale. My SIL and BIL have dropped out of the competition completely.

I’ve used the LoseIt program before and easily lost 10 lbs. But this year is different. I’ve hit that magic age where the doctor told me that it will be hard to start loosing weight.

When I stay within my 1600 calorie range, I don’t seem to loose weight. I know I’m not drinking enough water. I know it’s all about portion control.

And then nights like this happen — we go to our favorite pizza place and hit up Krispy Kreme Donuts. As I sat there last night, I confided in another friend that I just have no discipline. I’m hardly disciplined with anything in my life. But on the upside, I only ate one donut last night.

Then I weighed in this morning and discovered I lost a pound. For the love of Krispy Kreme, I lost a pound.
