especially if it's extra pounds. Sharon over at RedGeraniumCottage recently challenged fellow bloggers to join her as she loses a few pounds. I signed up to join her. I was supposed to post on Mondays. I didn't. I'm like Gabby on Desperate Housewives........signed up but didn't stay committed. I wasn't losing so I had no reason to post either. But Sharon gave us all "what for" on her blog tonight because she went around to check up on us. Oh, dear..........So I popped over to her blog and left her a message ....... "I'm here. Yes, I know I didn't post. I forgot I was supposed to post. The dog ate my keyboard. No I ate the keyboard cause I thought it was chocolate!! To be honest, I hadn't posted because I hadn't lost. I will go and post right now. I wouldn't want to get in trouble with General Geranium. I have found that I am so busy with my blog, my BOM and my Yahoo group that I forget about raiding the kitchen cupboards. This is good!!" And that's the truth, I find I am so busy these days that I don't snack nearly so much. I didn't say I'm not snacking at all. Those cookies I made for TeaAndStitches this past week were sort of good for you because I cut the sugar in half. They were also hard as a rock so could really only be eaten if dunked in tea or coffee. And it's Valentines Day soon and I can't pass a Hershey's Kiss without having one, oops, two......... but, I cut out the colas, upped the carrots and apples, nixed the potato chips, and made my grilled cheese with one of those "good for you butter substitutes". It didn't brown up like the one I cooked for my husband which was made with real butter, but it tasted just fine. And bottom line, I can report this week that I have lost three pounds. Took me three weeks to do it but it's gone. I will be good this week so that I can enjoy Saturday night's dinner at Arlington Haus. There will be no thought of dieting that night. :-)
Okay, Sharon, did I do my homework well enough to keep my place on your list?
Back to working on Valentines.
