Happy New Year

When we last left off, our intrepid hero Charlie and his faithful sidekick Sad Puppy had just wrapped up a troublesome year with the bathroom scale on the rise. Our dastardly villain, the evil Professor Seefood, had made an unexpected comeback after the triumphant defeat of Bob Hoskins Linoleum.

Our hero swore that, after the longest and most painful “diet” ever, he would never, EVER let Professor Seefood get the best of him again. There was simply no way that he would bury this (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime opportunity under forty pounds of Chex Mix in the twelfth month.

Yet there he was, at the end of the year, tired, miserable, and back above the 0.1 ton mark.

But just then, in his darkest hour, the cavalry arrived. And they brought along the most important weapon in all of dieting: The Switch. And it was in the “on” position. Because when The Switch is on, those extra pounds don’t stand a chance. Diet #109 had begun.

Charlie applied the Greatest Dieting Secret Ever. It’s what’s commonly known in the medical community as Stop Eating Everything You See. And then, just like 108 times before, this diet worked:

Not without its ups and downs, of course. But fortunately the downs outweighed the ups and our hero was right back on track.

Or was he?

Tune in again next week for another action-packed episode of Little Orphan Annie. Er, . . . I mean, Back to the Fridge.

The precursor to the dreaded Season of Chex Mix? Halloween candy.

I decided not to hand candy out this year after reading about the effects of sugars on the body. But then I put together a small bag of sweets for family members. Not sure what that says about me – that I’ll only knowingly poison the ones I love?

Mostly trying to avoid facing a pile of leftover candy that we would (if past years taught us anything) sit and mindlessly binge on until it is gone.

And YAY for the switch. Long may it remain on!

I had to laugh at Deb’s comment!

It’s probably a good thing that we don’t have any trick or treaters at our house – I’ve pretty much deemed all candy “insulin worthy!”

Have a great weekend Chowlee!

Love, your prettier sister, Biz

[…] close to just snoozing it for another 30 minutes and going back to bed.  But I didn’t.  My brother calls this “the switch.”  It’s either on or off.   And for whatever reason, my “switch” has been on […]
