"ILVTOFU" Too Dirty for the Road

Apr 15th 2009 11:15AM Hahaha. I love that one, Mark. I'll give commenters a day or two, and if no one can figure out the first one, I'll print the answer.

Tea Parties Are an Inexpensive Birthday Hit

Jan 21st 2009 10:01AM MarMar,

Good point. We struggled with that too, but ultimately just ended up inviting the girls. (There are 7 girls, 13 boys, so it worked for us.) I do feel badly, because she's been invited to several of the boys' parties. We made sure to send the invitations by mail, to prevent chatter about the party at school. We considered a "Princess and Pirates" tea for a while, but it's just too many kids.

Thanks for commenting!

Inauguration Day - How to Celebrate With Your Kids

Jan 14th 2009 9:24AM Oh, Nina, I knew when I wrote that someone would complain!

Of course I realize we aren't the only free country in the world ... it was simply meant to be tongue-in-cheek, not a history lesson.

Lifelong Fitness Beats Team Sports

Jan 12th 2009 7:07PM As a person who could cause major damage (and major embarrassment to herself) with a volleyball, I am 100% in favor if this idea. Love, love, LOVE it!

Peanut Allergies - Have We Gone Too Far?

Jan 6th 2009 4:57PM Katie -- I think you said it perfectly with that last sentiment. I think that's probably why the bus driver evacuated the entire bus. When you're responsible for someone else's child, you just can't take risks.

Are You Suffering from "Oprah Syndrome?"

Dec 31st 2008 11:06AM I've lost a significant amount of weight (10% or more of my body weight) four times. Three of those times, I gained it right back. I can honestly say that when I slid back into my old eating habits, the number one emotion I felt was relief. Change is hard. Giving up can feel easier (but not better).

This time is different, though. Now, when I feel myself slipping into those old, bad habits, I feel awful and immediately get "back on track." I honestly don't know what's different this time, but I think it has to do with the fact that I'm not as hard on myself when I do indulge.

When we go out to eat, I don't order the healthiest thing on the menu, on weekends, I increase my calorie allotment by about 200-300 calories, but I do make up for it during the week by cutting calories and being more active.

I think that the answer, for me, was coming up with a plan I could live with. All of those other times, I restricted things so much that I couldn't wait for the diet to be over. Now it's not really a diet ... I can't imagine now eating the way I used to again.

Just my thoughts!

It's so interesting to me that you mention anxiety, because that was a big part of my withdrawal from sugar too.
