Much for Which to Be Thankful. For.

November 19, 2009

Bunny has been perusing her calendar for the next week, and it’s a road full of big potholes:

Wednesday–lunch meeting at work.

Thursday–dinner at Mexican restaurant (read: chips-guac-margarita) for Buff’s birthday.

Friday–dinner with cousins at BBQ restaurant for Buff’s birthday.

Saturday–football extravaganza and tailgating galore, followed by dinner at Italian restaurant with friends for…you guessed it…Buff’s birthday.

Sunday–after-theatre dinner with friends. Did we mention it’s Buff’s birthday?

There are two issues here:  temptation to eat what she shouldn’t, and even if she doesn’t, the challenge of figuring out how many points are in meals that are cooked by selfish people who are not considerate enough to provide a Weight Watchers point count. (Well, it would help!)

This is a challenge Bunny is going to have to learn to face. This is part of life and struggling to lose weight.

Breathe, Bunny, Breathe.

Well, at least she doesn’t have to cook, right?


Monday-Wednesday–prepare for the ultimate assault:  The complete trashing of the kitchen, reorganization of the furniture and full-on attack on Bunny’s mind, soul, back, feet and spirit as she cooks Thanksgiving dinner for 28 people!!!



How on earth does our poor dear Bunny count her points in the midst of such an assault on her eating regime?

We will hold Bunny’s hand and try to help her navigate these treacherous waters.

By the way…it has been suggested that Buff doesn’t do all he can to support Bunny’s effort. We would like to state that Buff, whom we like very much, can’t really be blamed for having a birthday, nor for having friends and family who want to celebrate it with him. Yes, he’s responsible for putting cookies and chips and movie popcorn in Bunny’s immediate vicinity lately, but that’s because he’s struggling with his own weight-loss issues. He has simply found a way around it (the gym), while Bunny has not. Buff is a dear man who loves Bunny very much and has good intentions.

On the other hand, it’s completely his fault that Bunny has to cook Thanksgiving Dinner for his entire family. Bunny doesn’t mind because his family is very special and she loves them too.

Well, she kind of minds. She kind of resents having to do all that work while working full-time. She’s always completely exhausted, and dreads it for about 2 months ahead of time. Plus, she always burns herself at some point.



Let’s get him!!!
