Confessions of a Weight Loss Junkie

Posted 03-27-2014 at 03:02 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I've been told to make a public confessional.

I'm supposed to do this as a means of motivating myself to stick to a changed lifestyle.

Yes, we no longer "lose weight". We "change lifestyles".

In my case that is a true statement.

I'm perfectly healthy. I've never broken a bone or had more than an occasional cold. I've never had surgery and except for some dental work have never really been on any kind of heavy meds.

But I've battled being "big" for most of my life.

Part of it is my build. I'm "wide". When I was a kid I was always the biggest kid -- never really fat...just bigger than others my age. I wore "husky" sizes, a moniker I always hated, and I usually endured the taunts of childhood bullying because I was the size I was.

But I didn't become overweight, actually, until adulthood.

That came as a result of pure undisciplined eating. And after I married, got busy with the...

Updated 02-22-2014 at 02:23 PM by bigbearfla58 (Updates for Thanksgiving 2014)

Friday August 30, 2013 5:44 p.m. I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy Labor Day Weekend and holiday season yet to come.

I also have one new to me holiday treat to share with all of you.

1. My Grandma's Coffee Cake

I am sure some of you know of My Grandma's from QVC or your local markets. I just found this cake and its the best. Log onto MY Grandmas and find a store in your hometown.

2. We Take The Cake Key Lime Bundt Cake

This cake was featured as one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2003.

3. The Christmas Palace has Christmas every day of the year I love this store.

I love living here in South FL as all three of these places are in my back yard.

This is Labor Day Weekend 2014 now it's time to start my Thanksgiving preparations. This weekend I will be checking out the pantry and re-seasoning my cast iron skillet getting it ready for Thanksgiving.

A January Christmas

Posted 01-28-2013 at 01:30 PM by lauriebear
Updated 01-28-2013 at 01:32 PM by lauriebear (add category)

I was going through some old letters and cards that were in a draw. As I was doing this of course I stopped and read a few, one really caught my attention though, from a neighbor that passed away. It was a little sad and a whole lot glad. I hadn't remembered this letter and couldn't believe my luck at finding it. She wrote, "Dear Laurie, I wanted to thank you for the brownies this past Christmas, it was so nice of you to remember me. It brought back lovely memories of days spent baking with my daughters. One thing we did was bake Christmas Cookies in January. Every January we would set a day aside and gather around to bake and talk. I started this in 1965 when Mindy was 4, and Carol was 9. We so enjoyed having a little Christmas in January that we continued to do it for many years. I do not quite remember when we stopped, but life soon got in the way, I called my girls today and we have a Christmas in January set up for next week, I have you and your lovely brownies to thank....

Wednesday, Septembear 05, 2012 5:38 p.m. I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season yet to come.

Here is part 3 of my Thanksgiving Checklist
(see below)

21. Two weeks before Thanksgiving clean your dishwasher with 1/4 cup vinegar and 5 tbs baking soda.

22. Empty washing machine and dryer ready to wash up the linens and tablecloth the day after Thanksgiving and check for stains.

23. One prepared salad or sandwich to eat for lunch. I make my own chicken salad with celery, grapes and tarragon

24. Get a good nights sleep on Thanksgiving Eve and set up coffee maker to make a fresh pot of coffee tomorrow morning.

25. Two or three great cooks to help you out in the kitchen -- make sure they are GREAT COOKS who have at least 13 years of Thanksgiving experience


27. Two cans of Bar Keepers Friend cleanser to help you clean up after
