In honor of my finally getting the hostess page back up and styled properly, today’s self-serving post is:

Hostess Shots gone horribly wrong!

I cleared a lot of junk off of my pc this weekend, and I stumbled across hostess shots that were never used.

I have NO idea when this one was taken…had to be at the very beginning of my site. The file name is called “swan” for some wacky reason. Mama, don’t let your babies grow up to have webcams.

Here’s another big-haired one from 2001…I had various websites at various addresses for the last 10 years. This one I look like…like…I’m trying to position myself for a freaking middle managment job. Be careful what you wish for, lady…

October 2003. On my way to a Disney vacation, I suppose. Did you have any doubt that I owned a pair of Mouse ears?

And finally December 03…the Allen Iverson look. Remember my ‘blonde chunky highlights” phase? Looks cute down. Back? Not so good.

Hair grows back, people. Be thankful.

The diet’s going well…without weighting myself it’s hard to tell what’s going on. Maybe next week I’ll get on the scale. Today’s menu consisted of…

Breakfast: Yogurt smoothie (90 cal)
Lunch: Gardenburger Meatless Meatloaf (actually not-so-bad, 180 cal), 1 serving sugar free Jell-o (10 cal, v good)
Drive home snack: 1 snack sized bag of smartfood popcorn (100 cal, yum!)
Dinner: 1 serving spaghetti (200 cal…love carbs!) with 1/2 cup gravy (100 cal…yes, I call it gravy).
Dessert: 1 Silhouette ice cream sandwich (decadent, 130 cal)

So if I have a ‘good’ day, I give myself dessert. But that makes no sense because if I have a ‘bad’ day like yesterday [Whopper Jr w/cheese (430 cal, decadent), with a medium fries (360 cal…Holy Hell!), and a bunch of Godiva chocolate from work.] it ends up that I eat better tasting things than my good day’s dessert anyway. Irony.

That all puts at 810 for the day. I want to take in about 200 more. Because I don’t want to starve myself. But I’ll make sure it’s healthy.

Because if one wants to wear some of these come summer, one must be svelte.

    Um, nothing personal, but why are you on a diet? You look fine by me. Downright cute, in fact. And smart.

    But anyway, good luck…and remember that a change in [food] lifestyle and daily exercise are the best ways to keep it off 🙂 P.S.: Found this site via

    I concur with Dave above! I’m not getting it. I can understand trying to avoid the French Fries, but in general I think you are fine.
