I am not the basic homemaker. I can't stand laundry and cooking and cleaning and my kids get on my nerves like crazy, but I can see how much better they are doing with their mom at home to care for them. I have a small furniture refinishing business, but mostly I enjoy reading moderately dirty romance novels. I suffer from a deep boredom from not interacting with people who can finish a complete sentence and not physically working at anything. I enjoy many small things in my life, but I abhore the neglect of being a wife and mom.

17 day diet
I don't know if any of you watched the entire Dr Phil, but they do say that this book was originally written to get people through the holiday season without gaining the extra 12 lbs that is normal.
From there the book became a full 'cycle' diet plan. The cycle lasts for 17 days and then starts over. You can stay on the plan for as long as you need to lose weight without the normal plateaus that everybody gets.
Then, if you paid any attention during the plan, you shouldn't have a problem continuing to exercise and eat healthy and keep the weight off.
I was impressed with the fact that it is not just a 17 day plan and I want to know if it really does elliminate plateaus.

What was the catalyst that made you decide to lose weight?
All of my worlds seemed to collide over the last couple of years. We lost most of our income, our health insurance was gone, we almost lost our home, and then my husband found out he had cancer. I had already been heavier, but over the last two years I piled on 20 lbs of complete stress.
My husband is almost fully recovered, our home is safe, and we have work; so it is time for me to take charge of my life and not let the stress continue to affect my life.
The tipping point for me was visiting my sisters this year. It was the first time in a while that we had had enough money to do anything besides pay bills. It was good to see them, but it sucked being the heaviest one there.

Bought a new scale...
Nice! Thanks for the giggle. I wish I had a scale that would talk to me in Antonio Banderas' voice that told me how 'caliente' I am looking today. That would make stepping on the scale sooo worth it.
