...because it makes me smile!
I understand all about the emotional eating, and your reasons behind it are PRIMO.
Playing with family is fun, how about some Wii games like Wii Play or Wii Sports?


Oh, you are an emotional eater too! I remember you writing about this a while ago...I was wondering how you were doing as of late. I find that I am the kind of person that eats for each phase of my life....happy times, sad times, stressful times....not a good thing.
I hope you win the wii and I hope you enjoy it!
We have a channel called FIT TV. It is 24 hours a day work out stuff. I have tivo'ed a few different shows and try to do them a few times a week. It keeps it from getting boring, you know, doing the same thing each day.
good luck Jenn....


Having lost my parents and sister myself, I understand the emotional eating. (Oh, and my husband just spent 5 mos out of work w/a bad back.)

I had gastric bypass surgery 6 years ago. I lost 125 lbs, did remarkably well, and yet I still wouldn't recommend it. I know it's life-saving for many, but for me personally, I have never felt good since. And? I was so vitamin deficient for about two years (ended up doing 8 weeks' worth of IV infusions to get my iron levels back up) that I ate everything in sight. It was like being pregnant. Oh, and I gained 40 lbs that I still haven't gotten off. And? I still feel like hell.


Just saying I feel your pain. What an uplifting comment I just left! Way to make your day, right?

Smalltown Mom

I don't have any excuse for my 30 pounds, just laziness and bad habits.


2008 has seriously sucked eggs!!


Shoot! I also meant to say I hope you win. :)

Green Girl

You deserve the Wii Fit. I hope you win it.


I'll kiip my fingers crossed for you. I hope you win it. And you've got mii seriiously thinking of searching for a DiiViiDii or several to motivate myself. I have about 25 lbs that niid to disappear. I hope wii both manage to riich our goals. ;)

Manic Mommy

I've got the Nutrisystems website open on another tab. I'm fat through medication but still can't stand it. We're going to Disney in less than two months and I will fit into my summer clothes - and maybe they'll even be a little loose!


The Wii Fit is good fun. Time goes by so quickly you don't even notice that you're working out. Good luck!


as I am sure your husband says to you, you look terrific to me!


I do hope you win and I hope 2009 is a better year for you.


mes gots to gets me ones of those (I've got an /s/ problem today).


2008 is your annus horribilus - next year is going to be better...
....and we are willing it to be so.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

I should just give you my Wii Fit. It's been sitting in the box for a month, or ore. What does it say about a person who is too lazy to open her Wii Fit box? Not good . . . And now that I have only nine working toes . . . there's little hope for me.

Good luck! I hope you win your Wii Fit, and that when you do, you open the box, which I'm sure you will, because you're you, not me.



I hear ya sister! I think your story is perfect. If I were choosing you'd win!

I feel your fat. I mean, my fat. But yes, I can relate. I have never experienced the satisfaction of losing anywhere near 30lbs, having steadily gained a few pounds to ten pounds per decade. So I can't imagine how frustrating to gain back such an amazing loss. But maybe you know you've done it before, you've had that success once, and you know you can do it again?

And yes, if you discover the nirvana of combining TV watching.. no... better ... blogging and weight loss, please fill me in.

Blogging should come with a warning about weight gain.

texasholly @ June Cleaver Nirvana

I hope you win. We love ours. The kids can play it forever. I, on the other hand, can out-hula hoop any of them. Yep, it is quite a skill honed over time...


I hear ya. I do the same thing. And due to losses in the past few years, I've gained a lot of weight!!!

I hope you win!


I can't think of a nicer woman who deserves a good win!! Thinking good thoughts for you. Come ON Nintendo.


You're a strong woman, you can do it, and boy do you deserve it!

Melanie @ MelADramatic Mommy

The Fit is definitely fun. I need to get back into it. FYI Losangelista is having a giveaway for one.
