Starbucks is Fattening and So is Everything Else I Love!

My wonderful roommates — India and Brittany– gave me a Wii Fit for Mother’s Day. So now I am obligated to try to lose 10 pounds. My initial assessment of the Wii Fit is that it pretends to be all sweet and nice, but deep down it is the devil.  After it asks you so sweetly to step on the board,  it tells you your physical age??!! Horror! Let me just say the Wii Fit thinks my Mama lied about my birth date.

All of this made me think of my quilt called Starbucks is Fattening. This quilt was conceived because the ladies in my office always showed up at Friday staff meeting with a large Starbucks concoction while continuing to talk about losing weight.  I just wanted to remind them that the two things are related.

By the way, feel free to comment and tell me I look great fro my age. It would make me feel better! 😦

  1. You look great for your age!

    Starbucks certainly can be fattening but it can also be wonderful. In the summertime, I love their Shaken Iced Teas. A grande unsweetened blak tea only has 80 calories (add Splenda!).
