I've got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell

I know I've already extolled the virtues of Fitday, but like others have noted, that site now owns my ass. My noticeably smaller ass, if I may. I don't normally obsess over weight, but I am a big homo, so there are certain body issues. I have mostly this site to thank for the focusing my gustatory selections. In less than three weeks I've lost over ten pounds, guys. Those abs I yammer on about? Not such a pipedream anymore. They may be as little as five pounds away. I have some concerns, though. You might find this surprising, but I have a tendency to get a bit obsessive about things. For instance, when I was on Atkin's in the 90's (I'm very early adopter), there was an episode at Midnight Mass on Christmas where I considered palming the holy host cuz, well, unleavened bread is pure carbs, yo.* So I'll have to monitor myself closely to quell any feverish thoughts that threaten to emaciate me. Kwashiorkor is not hawt.

While I'm repetitive with the extolled virtues, I have to praise the neti. Since I've been gettin' neti in the shower every morning (4 weeks), I haven't had a single sinus headache. I'll just say it. Nasal douching is the bomb.

OK, with that, I'm outta here. I'll give my love to the wee Cullum for y'all. Lata.

*Relax Catholics. No holy hosts were harmed during that episode or in the making of this post.

Congrats on the weight loss! I don't know if I've lost any. I only get weighed once a year, at my physical, and I have a month til that. We'll see if there's a difference between this year and last year. Please, please, please, let there be at least a tiny amount lost.

I did have the nice experience of buying a skirt the other day in my regular size and when I tried it on at home, it was a bit big. I don't think I could go down to the next smaller - which is my goal - quite yet, so I washed it in warm water instead. Heh. I have a feeling this particular skirt was cut big, though.

Why am I babbling like this? I must be hungry.

To quote Nathan Lane "Where are the polaroids? What am I, a mind reader?"

Congratulations, that's quite a lot in a short period of time! (What, is this the Biggest Loser or something? Or have you become a Hollywood starlet?) I've lost about 11 pounds in the past 6 weeks and feeling MUCH better for it.

Yeah, thanks to your advice - I'm a slave to Fitday as well. I think the amazing thing was the amount of sodium in my diet!

Color me bummed. I left a 'comment' here earlier today and see it did not register. I forgot what I said; and now, frankly--I need an intervention as I'm typing this pecking-style as I shove 'scoop' FRITOS dipped in salsa into my face at this very moment.

MG, none of us around here react to rejection all that well.
