A Birthday Gift, Tip Tagged and the Fast Food Challenge

My birthday is tomorrow. This may sound odd but for my birthday I want you to do something nice for yourself. You deserve to be treated well now not just when you lose the weight. Do you want to buy a book, or get a pedicure, or go for a walk? If you don’t have a lot of money on you can you use the lotions you do have. Do you have a gift certificate that you were saving but never used because you wanted to use at a special time. Gift certificates can expire. I might spend most of my birthday unpacking my things the movers are coming tomorrow. Knock on wood. I want to use my blender for smoothies and play with my stability ball. There are something’s I decided I don’t want. I love my plus size wedding dress it’s beautiful but I want to bless someone else with it since I don’t plan on using it again. I like the guy I got.

Tip Tag: You’ve been tagged by iportion if you choose to accept put one to tip on your blog. It can be obvious and obscure.

Iportion’s Tip Tag. Not all fats are bad. Try cooking with olive oil, canola oil, sunflower, safflower oil, or corn. If you want to replace canned cooking spray use a plastic bottle and a half teaspoon of oil and a little water. Those spray cans do have calories and lots of them if you do lots of sprays. The servings are just so small they don’t have to list them.

Fast Food Challenges: Thoughts
Tonights homework. Find your favorite fast food place and see if they have nutrition information on line, if not email them.

What I don't get is how fast food places can get way with only having only thin people in it’s commercials. Willard scot as hired was the original Ronald then McDonald’s fired him before they went national because he was fat. I feel fast food composes shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate against the same people who are buying their food. I don’t feel it’s a sin fo someone to be fat. Fat is just fat. A person isn’t good or bad because of their weight. They are good and bad because of how they treat others.

Happy birthday, Iportion! For your birthday I'm going clothes shopping with my husband...which is actually a lot of fun. We both need new work clothes..he's starting a new job and my fall/winter clothes are too big!

I'm going to take you up on your tag tip and I'm going to put one on both my blogs, the Amazon Strength one and the Tri like you get paid one...I just have to think of them first.

Happy Birthday dear!! I hope you have fun with whatever you decide to do. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow as I try to run longer on the treadmill.

I will post my tag tip tonight. I already know what I will share.

I am not sure what I am going to do other than unpack and if I am lucky play with my new video game that I can’t play on this computer.

Living to Feel good, I wonder what your tip will be.
I don’t think I can remember being on a treadmill yet though the gym/activity center has a couple. I have tried a eclipse, and a nautilus and I own a step, body ball, stepper (it’s an old tony little one pre Gisele. Mom got tired of it.) I’ve tried those ab rollers

April thanks, I even notice that clothe some stores don't have pluss sizes yet they also sell candy not fruit.

Michelle you've been busy a lot. :-) Thank you so much for your birthday wishes they mean a lot.

Hi Iportion, Thanks for the v&c. I'm glad you know me if I can't sign in on my name all of the time. That's it you talked me into it. I will have half of the cake. I needed your persistence. I did go back to doing a food journal this week. I wasn't too sure what you meant about a one tag on my blog? I don't have a car so I can't get to a fast food place. With the problems my computer and mouse are posing, I am lucky if I get to post and answer a comment within one day. Have you always been so gung-ho with exercising? Why don't you have a before and after picture here, that is really motivating! Bless you. The mouse takes 20 sec. for each letter, soon the freeze out!!! Bless you.

Hi Iportion and happy birthday!! Hope you have a nice day. Thanks for the tip. Being on ww has given me some resources and let's see one person that has a web site and is on ww program has all (well a lot) or restaurants points figured out and the calories. The web site is and go to the restaurant section. I think it's pretty accurate as I've checked out a lot of fast food web sites or nutritional info too. Let see another tip for me was to read up on emotional eating. Try to get inside my head about why I eat when I'm not really hungry. Worth a try. Take care.

Happy Birthday!
What if one person treats another with McDonalds?
Would that person then be bad? :)

Unfortunately, you're asking a company that is entirely morally/spiritually bankrupt on every level to do the right thing and represent their wide spectrum of clientele. Skinny, fat, black, white, etc. Not going to happen. They're only interested in profits, so they're going to continue to make their horrible product as enticing as possible. I just assume McDonalds be eradicated from our planet, expeditiously.

Happy Birthday Val. I hope you are enjoying your day. I'm not doing anything special persay for *myself* but my grampa is coming for supper and mom is cooking sloppy joe's. I always have that at some point when I visit and I just realized last night when she asked what would I like to eat for the last supper I'll have until my next visit at Christmas and I chose sloppy joe's. She wanted spaghetti but I would prefer Sloppy joe's. I like the way she makes them. I wonder too if this will be the last time I see my grampa. He's got cancer again but this time in the lungs and it will be interesting to see how much longer he'll be alive. He's my late gramma's third husband but they married when i was a baby or maybe before. I'll be busy other wise this afternoon packing up getting ready to leave tomorrow. I'm debating whether to do laundry tonight or in the morning. Tonight might be more prudent.

I also have to do a video tape of instruction for my dad for when he works on his pc and goes to use the digital camera, especially when he transfers and prints. I could show him but he won't remember even if he writes it down.

for your tip what type of bottle do you use? a regular spray bottle or a bottle made for using as a cooking spray.

I'll have to post on my blog the rest. For now I need to go out with my mother. I'm doing the yo yo thing today. hehe

Happy birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day.

I think it is a beautiful thing that you are giving away your plus size wedding dress. Now it will be special for someone else.

I absolutely agree with you that your size doesn't make you a good or bad person. I hate when people say they are a better person than when they were fat, because I personally think I was a really great person when I was fat, I was just unhealthy.

I had fast food yesterday and today. I am pretty proud of how I did. I ordered the healthy options and I logged my food.

Thank you all for your kindness

Arindana I will send you a virtul hug.
I spent my birthday unpacking. I had waited for over a month for my housewheres to come but I knew it would be a long weight. I am still not all the way unpacked.

I hope you all do something nice for yourself. I can't wait to play my birthday video game.

I hope you computer get fixed. I only have mom and pop places around me as well. It doesn't have to be chain place it can be mom and pop what ever place you eat the most at.

hey there - i just wanted to wish you a belated happy birthday. and thanks for the idea about the wedding dress. when i got married, my wedding dress was a size 22. since i am no longer that size...then i think it's time for it to go to someone else. i definitely don't plan on being that size again...or getting married again for that matter. i like the guy i got too! :)

hope you have a great week!
