I'd like to point out that I wasn't really gaining this fast until SOMEONE insisted we do a joint blog together. Now, no one's blogging and I'm getting fatter and fatter. I'd like to say I'll go for a walk at lunch, but that would be a lie. I will make better food decisions.

Now I know what I can drink!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A fruity cocktail may not only be fun to drink but may count as health food, U.S. and Thai researchers said on Thursday.
Adding ethanol -- the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits -- boosted the antioxidant nutrients in strawberries and blackberries, the researchers found.
Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the addition of a splash of alcohol, they report in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture.
Dr. Korakot Chanjirakul and colleagues at Kasetsart University in Thailand and scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture stumbled upon their finding unexpectedly.

They were exploring ways to help keep strawberries fresh during storage. Treating the berries with alcohol increased in antioxidant capacity and free radical scavenging activity, they found.
Any colored fruit or vegetable is rich in antioxidants, which are chemicals that can cancel out the cell-damaging effects of compounds called free radicals.
Berries, for instance, contain compounds known as polyphenols and anthocyanins. People who eat more of these fruits and vegetables have a documented lower risk of cancer, heart disease and some neurological diseases.
The study did not address whether adding a little cocktail umbrella enhanced the effects.

it would be nice if:

i haven't weighed my self yet either. but wouldn't it be nice if marijuana was legal? i bet that most of the population would lose weight because healthy food would taste so much better..

I'm using that number, period-enhanced weightloss, I'm sure, to encourage me to eat the healthy food I brought instead of going out and getting the chicken cutlet wrap I really want.

That and it's still raining.

Still haven't

I still haven't weighed myself. And I'm not sure if that's because I'm sleepy in the mornings and not thinking of it or if it's some subconscious thing I'm doing so that I don't have to deal with the large number I'm sure will be looming out of the tiny clear window between my plump toes. (nice imagery, huh?).

Anyway, I'm trying to eat better, but so far it isn't working all that well.

Today I had a 12 ounce coffee, a peanut butter and fluff sandwich on white toast, and a bowl of Golden Grahams. For my beverage w/lunch I had/am having 24 ounces of green apple Kool-aid.

Not entirely healthy, but better than doritos and m&m's, right?

down a half

Woot! Just kidding. I'm not that excited to be down a half a pound. I did bring sneakers to work and will be taking a half-hour walk a lunch. I'm also drinking a bottle of water, which means I have to go pee right now.

I'm here..

Heh sistas, I finally made it. I'm not sure how much weight I have since Matt doesn't have a scale, so I'm going to go out and buy one. Last time I checked I was @ 202, pretty good since last year I was @ 220 :) YEAH FOR SEXERCISE..

Fat and Yucky

So, yep. It's a fact. I am at my heaviest weight ever. I'm not 100% sure of the actual poundage but I'm in the neighborhood of 225. I will do a weighing in the morning and report in.

I'm not sure about the 2 of you, but I plan on using this blog as more than just a weekly weigh-in. Hopefully we can all feel comfortable enough to post about more than just the numbers. I do. and I will.

Happy "spring"

Okay, I'll go first

This was all Stephie's idea, but I do need some motivation. I'm up to 264. Yep, that's 50 pounds more than when I came back to work after having B. Gross.
