10 pounds down 32 pounds to go!

Tuesday, December 26, 2006


172. lost two pounds over christmas. i'm calling it the russell stover diet. i can't explain it but i'm not complaining. we had a nice christmas...no dramas. i have a lifetime supply of silicone bakeware. which i love. there's something about floppy things that makes me unreasonably happy. and for some reason it's all blue. which is great because it all matches. and that makes my inner martha beam.

you know what is the saddest part of working in banking. i thought it was returning people's oil checks for insufficient funds but i'm starting to think it's seeing how many people use match.com. i have this need to get them all together in a rec hall with some punch. it's heartbreaking.

someone adorable sent me a cookbook of cakes. and when she comes to visit i want to make a pavlova. and we won't tell matt what it is. we'll just make him eat it. and he'll like it. and then we'll teach him about thai food.

oh yeah, and i lost two pounds in a day. that can't possibly be right but it looked really good this morning and i'm sticking with it. i'm pretty excited.

I saw it in Barnes and Noble and I knew that it was for you.

I'm temping in Boston today (whoo-hoo for money!) You know the skyscraper across from the Prudential Tower, the one that looks blue because the exterior is all tinted panes of glass? I'm in the clouds on the 53rd floor answering the phone.

awww, you're almost broadcasting from the top of the pru.

There's a theory that if you eat "bad" foods after you've been dieting, it convinces your body there's not a famine going on and gives it permission to burn your fat cells since food is plentiful. I have no idea if it's true, but I've had similar experiences where I eat like a pig and lose several pounds, so who knows?

Oh, it's the John Hancock building. I should have known that.

I love that - Broadcasting from high atop the Pru, it's Loren and Wally! Or someone. This day has been so frickin long. I still have an hour to go.

Glad you had a good Christmas. I dunno how it's possible to lose 2 pounds, but hey, various sayings involving gift horses and mouths spring to mind.

Hope 2007 brings you an exciting and highly paid job!

Congrats on the two pounds, and the successful Christmas! I'm a sucker for that silicone bakeware, myself.
