Quotable Sunday ~ On Dieting



Happy Sunday! I have chosen quotes about dieting today. I am making a concerted effort to drop my winter layer, which seems to be bulkier than in years past, hmmm. Mr. Blonde joined in the diet festivities this week, and woudn't ya know, the dude has dropped half of the amount of weight I want to lose.... in ONE WEEK!!! I hate men and their ability to drop 10 pounds just by thinking about it. Nothing pisses me off more than hearing him get on the scale and say, "Cool, just dropped another three pounds yesterday." And guess what? If he were to go take a crap, or a BM for those polite folks, he'd hop on the scale and find he'd lost another three to five pounds! I want to be a man just long enough to lose 10 pounds. I could handle two days being a man, couldn't I?


When we lose twenty pounds... we may be losing the twenty best pounds we have! We may be losing the pounds that contain our genius, our humanity, our love and honesty. ~Woody Allen

Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake. ~Author Unknown

I keep trying to lose weight... but it keeps finding me! ~Author Unknown

Rich, fatty foods are like destiny: they too, shape our ends. ~Author Unknown



For More Fabulous Quotable Sunday Head On Over To TONI'S!!


Dieting is wishful shrinking. ~Author Unknown

    I know what you mean. My husband is the only person I have to workout with and it's so depressing that he can lose twice as fast. I think I too might be able to be a man for a couple days just to lose some. Although that might make things between me and hubs a little awkward.

    I'm always trying to lose 5 pounds.
    In fact, my next post is directed at trying to lose those pesky pounds.

    Never thought about becoming a man to do it, though. You may be on to something!

    Who are you telling!!! When we got back from vacay, hubby and I gained five pounds each. Well, he's lost it all and then some! I've lost two. BOO! I hate it.

    My husband is the same way...he thinks about losing weight and it happens...he doesn't really have to do anything. And then it takes me 10x longer than him.
