My Boys

Should I be worried?

How about now?

Will may have gotten more of Grandpa Benton's genes than I thought.

Ready to start again

I am back from my two week break, ready to continue with my eating goals. I am happy to report that I held my ground over Spring Break. Check back next Friday for my weekly report!

The List

So the other day, I am listening to a radio show while folding clothes. The hosts are reading two top ten lists. Apparently, 1000 women in Britain were polled on the correlation between a man's name and his "size" (if you know what I mean). The first list contains the names of men who are , how do I put this.... perceived to be on the large side. The second list is names of men who are perceived to be on the small side.

So, I am lazily listening while folding clothes, not really thinking much of these lists either way.

The large list starts getting read.... again, not really paying much attention.

#10 Dan

#9 Richard

#8 Andy

#7 Chris

#6 Robert

#5 Mark

#4 James

#3 Steve

#2 Paul

And the # 1 name on the "BIG" list is....


I am slightly amused at this list and just keep folding clothes.

Now the "small" list gets read:

#10 Nick

# 9 Dennis

# 8 Barry

#7 Josh

#6 Jeremy

#5 Keith

# 4 Frank

# 3 Nigel

# 2 Brian

At this point the hosts of the show stop for a moment and question whether they really should say the number one name that women correlate with a "small package". They don't want to offend any of their listeners. My interest is now peaked a little and I am glad that they decide that they have to read it.

The number one name that is correlated with "falling short in that department" is.....






















I just busted up laughing.....

Just add that last post right back on. I think I know the cause of why I am up this week, FOOD!I am taking next week off for spring break. So my next weigh in isn't until the 28th. I just need to have a mental break from this. Hopefully it won't put me too far behind!

Results for the week


I am happy to have a loss this week, but one pound a week is a little slower than I would like. I know that I need to also count fat grams to speed up the process. But why mess with something that is working right??

I went to my massage therapist this week, ( by that I mean the lady at the massage school a block away from us) and while she was massaging me she was like, "wow, you have really lost a lot of weight, it is so much easier to work on your back now". So, was she saying I had a ton of back fat????

The Wig

This is what Ray wore into work the other day.

Some people couldn't even look at him because they thought he was serious.

I am SO glad he wasn't.

Every Prayer Counts

My sister-in-law Erika has recently had surgery to remove a low grade tumor from the side of her brain. Doctors expect a full recovery. It is just the recovering part that is proving difficult on her and her family. If you could keep them in your prayers tonight that would be wonderful. I know that every prayer counts!

We love you guys!

The results are finally in....

Our internet has been out since Thursday night. I am sure you have all been biting your nails waiting for the results. It was girl scout cookie week. That is all I have to say....
