My life in a nutshell!

Well, I am really enjoying Geneen Roth's "When Food is Love..." actually, I'm almost done. I have been practicing some of her guidelines too and they are helping me get the cravings under control... somewhat. She says that eating slowly and savoring your meals while sitting down with no distractions is a good way to learn to enjoy your food more and I have found that that is very true but It is difficult to not eat watching TV or eat too fast since I have been hungry lately. I am attempting to lower my daily calories and somedays it goes better than other days... We'll see at the end of the month, how much difference that makes in my weight loss. Yesterday, My husband and I went to the movies and saw a couple great movies... We love to go to the movies and have pretty much gone at least once a week since we met 19 years ago. We saw The Last Airbender and the A Team and they were both very good. Last week, we saw Knight & Day and Grown ups also very good. I love the movie popcorn but I chew the taste out of it and spit it out to keep from getting the carbs/calories, weird, huh? I am trying to get off Chocolate and it has been the hardest thing to give up. I eat sugar-free chocolate and never eat much of it but I really love Chocolate. Chocolate!!!!!! On family holidays, I really miss my family. They had a big family get together yesterday and we live 1000 miles away from Philly, our hometown. Since My George works for DisneyWorld, it is hard for him to get off on holidays so we are never up there at any holidays, oh well... such is life. We do love living down here... In Orlando, Florida for this last decade... but I wish we didn't have to be so far from our family. I hope you all enjoyed your Independence Day... or if you're not an American, your weekend. I am figuring out a list of long term and short term goals and I will probably post again tomorrow night. *Maria*


  1. You do know that C&S (chewing and spitting) still allows over 1/2 of the calories in the food to be absorbed?

  2. Wasn't the A-Team good?? I loved it! I wish I got out to more movies...but the movie popcorn is the DEVIL for me! Here, on Tuesdays, you get the movie, popcorn and a drink for $10! How do you say no to THAT?? Karma clearly wants me to have the popcorn!

    How do you handle the humidity in Orlando?? We went to Disney in July once...I thought I was going to DIE!!!

  3. I would think C&S would work but Stephanie says that 1/2 the cals are absorbed! Ugh...that stinks!

    I am jealous that you guys go to the movies so often. I LOVE movies but don't get to go as often as I would like!
