If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Biggest Loser **SPOILER**

Ron is driving me NUTS.

First thought, I have to give him kudos. He accepted responsibility when Mike talked to him about his choices. That whole segment made me pause the tv and have a conversation with my son, Logan. It made me cry when Mike said "sure they took me to buffets, but I was the one that chose my food". I said to Logan, "you can be sure as shit his choices weren't a double cheeseburger versus a spinach salad". I proceeded to talk to Logan about the choices I made in life and diet and how it affected him, and how grateful I am that he jumped on board the healthy eating bandwagon (he didn't have a whole lot of choice at 13) and embraced it. He's healthier, fitter, and dare I say, better looking for it. He's already going through the trials and tribulations of teenage angst, how much worse would it be if he were fat and pimply?

But I digress... Ron did a good thing, stepping up to his responsibility with Mike, and the parent in me applauds him. But then he blew all my love away with his sneaky underhandedness with Kristen. And she knew it. I get that he is only for his son. And that is admirable. Being a low down snake in the grass and a two faced bastard is not. The only reason he was able to keep his vow to Kathy was because of the percentage issue. That jerk got to save face and that's bullshit in my books. Be a man and fess up. There's more pride in standing by your son than there is in pretending to be something you are not. I'd rather a snake stood up and said "I'm a snake and I'm going to protect my brood, like it or not" than "I'm a magic fairy who always has your back, just like I promised" then bites you in a way you can't see coming.


Ahhhhhh, that feels better.

Yesterday I had lunch with my workout buddy. I had her over and prepared her a salad with garlic cheese toast. The salad had a serving of tofu, marinated in sweet chili sauce then pan seared. On the baby greens was half an apple each, a tablespoon of Romano Cheese, a serving of dry cottage cheese, and a sprinkle of Salad Elegance (damn, I wish we could get that stuff in Canada). The garlic cheese toast was Dempster's Flax Bread, a spray (from my Misto) of olive oil and an ounce of light mozza.

Thanks for listening,

Yum - that salad looks awesome! Can I come for lunch next time???

I agree, Ron is a WEINER.

Oh, how I wish you could!

Linda said...

I was rather irritated with Ron and his stmts at the elimination!

Linda said...

And their cockiness that Mike was going to win!

Krista "Phoenix" said...

I still haven't watched that show... I feel like I'm missing out! Sigh... I don't want to jump in mid season though, so I guess I'll wait till next cycle!

OK, that tofu looks delish, I've tried suggesting having it one day around here, but my dad turned his nose up at the idea and Shawn gave me the "Are you NUTS" look... hmmm I'll have to ponder how to sneak it in cuz I'm totally curious about trying it!

Krista "Phoenix" said...

OH, and I love your little "Favourite Snack" picture box! awesome idea... mind if I copy?! ;)

I gave Ron the bennifit of the doubt at first, because I felt that he needed to be there to loose the weight for his son's. Mike is a great kid and I do like him. But after last night I wanted and do want RON TO go HOME and mike pissed me of with his Cockiness and taking the easy way out!!!! U know I think you knew along that Ron shiesty. I want Helen to go to, she drives me nuts and I was sad that Kristen went, but I want TARA to win anyways lol... I love you food, it always looks scrumptions and the presentation is awesome to. Wish I could be as creative... I been hooked on pita pockets now thanks to u... I LOVE IT!!

♥ Dee ♥ said...

Go ahead, Krista!

Becca, I could never really articulate why I hated Ron so much. Sooo, not like me. But he just rubbed me the wrong way from the moment he said "It's Mandy's turn to go home".

Mike is a teenager. Of course he's cocky. I get that. And I'm cool with it.

I still don't want Tara to win! I know she's the hands down favourite, but I'd like to see someone else come up from behind and do it. Doesn't even matter to me who. As long as it's not Ron or Helen. Helen pissed me off when she sacrificed her daughter (who is still big, btw, so obv COULDn't do it from home, and who would do that to their kid????).

Oh, how emotionally involved we get with these shows, huh? LOL

spunkysuzi said...

Honestly i had to stop watching that show as it would get me soooo mad!!

sarah said...

Yeah, Ron is a total douche.

charmed i'm sure said...
