Filed Under...

... I don't want to hear about it!

Now this girl seriously needs to lose some weight, don't you think?

But, get this, I caught the flu bug that was going around, and had the worst of it last weekend, but for whatever reason, my stomach just hasn't been able to get back on track, so I've hardly eaten anything for a week.  And in that time of eating significantly less food than usual, I've lost --

Are you ready?


I've lost...

 all of two whole pounds.



So, well...  I guess I'm not giving up, but I must say it's downright discouraging!

I went to my naturopath and told her about my lack of weight loss problem and she said, "Welcome to the world of perimenopause."  But then she did some thyroid testing, too, so maybe that can be my new excuse. =sigh=  In the meantime, my sis, Nina and I have a pact that we will at least not gain any weight during the holidays.  Then, in the way of New Year's Resolutions...  well...  I guess we'll figure that out when the time come.  But the idea is that all the New Year's weight loss ads might get us psyched to do some real dieting.

Mmmmm...  Well, may be.

But now I have to get through Thanksgiving without gaining more than the two pounds I lost this past week.

Yeah, riiiiiight.

You know, of course, that just smelling the pies the children will be making is going to add at least two pounds to my plumpling middle-aged figure.

Again, I =sigh===

It may be a lost cause.
