I will not talk about the election...I will not talk about the election...I will not talk about the election...



I promise, I will not get all worked up over the results of the election last night. I have just decided that, regardless of who won or lost, we need to pray for our country. That is all I have to say about that...

Well, I would be over-the-top excited about Thanksgiving, but I have a confession to make...I am on Jenny Craig and I am afraid that my turkey day will consist of a box of turkey and all of the sides (sounds rather depressing), but their food is actually really good! I may have to sneak a little goody on the big day, but I will be good. I never thought that these words would come out of my mouth, but...here goes...I want to look like Valerie Bertinelli.



Seriously, she is so cute & skinny. Not "scary-got-get-yourself-a-sandwich" skinny, but "I-have-been-on-Jenny-Craig-and-look-fab" skinny. Actually, I can think of a few other people that I would rather look like (e.g. Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, that scary trainer "Jillian" from the Biggest Loser, Jenny McCarthy, Reece Witherspoon, Gisele Bunchen, J.Lo., Victoria Beckham (without the sourpuss face, of course), that chick from "Chuck" (did you know she was Australia?), Tyra Banks (I am an equal opportunity gal), Cindy Crawford (now, or in her supermodel hayday), Elle MacPherson...should I continue?) but Valerie is my JC hero.
Anywho, I am going to be having a GIVEAWAY soon, so keep your peepers open & check back frequently...

8 brilliant things my peeps said about this:

You go girl! I know, doesn't Valerie look amazing? She is a healthy weight and not super skinny. Wishing you total success with Jenny Craig. I have heard that the food is really quite good. Amy :)

Hey there!
You are so funny, and it's impossible to NOT be cheerful when I read your posts! :) You remind me that I am supposed to do those horrid sit-ups today. I need to get back on the exercise bandwagon! :)

I hope you are doing well! :)
Have a great day!

Val does look great, and is an awesome role model! Congrats on your diet and good luck, have you checked out the JC forums yet? You're not the only one with holiday food worries. It always helps to know people are there for you!

Hi there, I just was reading over this post. Good luck on getting healthier, but remember...those girls who are super thin don't always have a "fast metabolism". I'd love to look like them too, but I know that It would have to be done by being unhealthy and that's not good. Take care and I'll be thinking about you during turkey day. :-) It's all a state of mind. My aunt just lost 150 lbs. The first year she ate nothing... only shakes. I couldn't even imagine it.
