  1. Ok, so this is my 2nd attempt to try to post. I would love the biggest loser cookbook. Yay for a contest and YAY FOR GETTING UNDER 220!!! CONGRATS!!

  2. -Ok so now that I know that that one went through I can finish what I am supposed to do. Heehee..Healthy eating is a must for me. I am currently about 130lbs overweight so limited calorie intake + lots of fruits and veggies and NO JUNKY FOODS is how I am going about it.
    - my favorite biggest loser contestant was hands down Ashley of the pink team in the most recent season. She was the biggest and started with little drive and little self confidence and ended beautiful and healthy and strong and confident. Sam comes in a CLOSE SECOND THOUGH because I thought he was GORGEOUS! LOL
    - A joke huh? OK, um
    A few days after Christmas, a mother was working in the kitchen listening to her young son playing with his new electric train in the living room. She heard the train stop and her son said, "All of you sons of bitches who want off, get the hell off now, cause this is the last stop! And all of you sons of bitches who are getting on, get your asses in the train, cause we're going down the tracks."

    The mother went nuts and told her son, "We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and you are to stay there for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language."

    Two hours later, the son comes out of the bedroom and resumes playing with his train. Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, "All passengers who are disembarking from the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for riding with us today and hope your trip was a pleasant one. We hope you will ride with us again soon." She hears the little boy continue, "For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing journey with us today."

    As the mother began to smile, the child added, "For those of you who are pissed off about the TWO HOUR delay, please see the bitch in the kitchen."

    - and I'm heading over to my blog right now to link to this post. :)

    Joke: What do you call cheese that isn't yours?

    Answer: NACHO Cheese! hee hee

  4. My favourite BL contestant was Danny - how do you not love him. I eat Chili all the time - Chili and Subway are my safety net. As you can see - I really need that cookbook!

  5. Ok already a follower......

    Husband and wife decide to make a password for sex, they decide on ‘washing machine’.

    Later in bed that night the husband says, “Washing machine.”His Wife replies, “Not tonight darling, I have a sore head.”

    Half an hour passes and she feels guilty so she says, “Washing machine.”

    This time the husband replies, “Too late, it was only a small load so I decided to do it by hand”.

    I would love this book as it's hard to get them here in Aus.

    My fave contestant would be this year's winner Mike. He just seemed like a really good guy.

    I've started increasing the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables I eat, and decreasing the amount of starches/carbs. Not that I've eliminated them completely, but definitely reduced to just one serving!

    I've never watched the Biggest Loser, but have plans to start next season!

  7. I'm a follower already but I have NO jokes. Sorry...even if I told one I'd mess it up somehow so be glad I'm not even going to attempt it. :)

    I switched from eating so many processed food to eating mostly veggies, fruits, and lean meats. I do have the occasional 100 Cal snack or Jello treat but for the most part I try to eat food in it's natural state. It's a constant battle tho! My weakness is bread and pasta at least now it's whole grain/whole wheat though. :)

  8. I am SO proud of you for hitting your first goal!!! YOU ROCK!!!

    Of course I'm a stalker ... I mean, follower :)

    Healthy eating: I don't keep "junk food" visible. If we're in a snacky mood the first thing we head for is typically fruit because it's the most visible!

    Favorite TBL contestant: I've got a two-fer and am going with Matt & Suzy from Season 2. They're SO sweet and open to their fans and openly share the struggles they've had (especially Suzy's after having their two adorable boys).

    Joke: (heard at John's preschool) Why did the chicken cross the playground?

    To get to the other SLIDE!!!

  9. I just posted it!

  10. -Im a follower!!!

    -I try and make eating fun. For me its all about finding the balance between what i like and what is good for me, and holding onto those foods for dear life!!

    -I havent watched too much BL (i do now thanks to my DVR)but I really like Ron & Mike since they were from around my hometown!!

    -What do you call a bear with no teeth- "A gummy bear!!!" I worked at Cedar Point as a Paddlewheel Captain and told corny jokes for two summers- so im full of them :)
