This coming January, Nan is planning on attending The Naked Knitters of America Conference 2013 that is being held in Sarasota, Florida. She has decided to shed a few pounds so she can fit back into her red bikini (for the volleyball tournament at the public beach). I thought that She and I could follow along with Nan to give her some support. SHE says that Nan has quite a large collection of Spanx, girdles and hefty brassieres and doesn't need OUR support. SHE says that if we have to start watching our weight She expects, at least, a new watch.

Even BooBoo needs to lose a pound or two. The Boobster has given up on walking and expects to be carried around in what she thinks is a motorized cat carrier.
Between painting and sewing and collaging and working on custom orders I am trying to make healthy-ish snacks and lovely meals with lots of green things. The fact that SHE loves treats does not help.
HER: Due to the fact that I had the huge green salad, tomatoes and an apple, may I please have dessert.
Me: Sure! (You still have to enjoy your life!)
HER: May I have a cookie?
ME: Well, sure.
HER: May I have two cookies?
ME: Why not?
HER: May I have two cookies and ice cream?
ME: Well, how about just trying the two cookies without ice cream?
HER: TWO RIGHTS DO NOT MAKE A WRONG!
This is going to be hard.
