I was doing some reading up on the diet supplement Alli.  I’ve seen it on TV a bunch and just wanted to see what it was about.  

I found a message board for women who take Alli and talk about it and give each other advice.  They were talking about the side effects that occur if your meals contain more than 15g of fat.  Just some nasty nasty stuff…  digestive system wise.   And just, ew. 

So needless to say they all were talking about how closely theykeep an eye on their fat intake.  Oh, they’re also amazed about how normally they lose like a half pound a week and they’re loosing like 2 or 3 a week now. 

Um, could it be because you’re being all psycho about your fat intake?  And it actually has very little, if anything, to do with the Alli?

So I think I’ve made a decision.  I’m going to save myself the $60+ and just watch the fat intake.  I’m pretty sure it’ll work just as well and is a hell of a lot cheaper.

Still here… just busy…

So I decided like 3 days ago to pick up crocheting again.  And decided yesterday to make a baby blanket for a friend whose Baby Sprinkle… (has anyone heard of this?  Apparently all the rage for 2nd and after babies)… is at the beginning of March.  I’ve made 2 of 49 squares and then I have to put them together and then make a border.  Holy lot of work!  

The breakfast for dinner thing seems to be working out well.  I’m down, finally.  I’m starting to see a difference…  on the scale, not physically yet, of course.

I forgot my sneakers at work the past two days, oh and much to my chagrin given the 3 inches of snow we had on the ground this morning.  But sadly this means the treadmill hasn’t been treaded for a few days.  

But I didn’t want anyone to think I disappeared or gave up.  I’m still here.  Hands flying over yarn as fast as I’m physically able…
