Life through the Eyes of a Former Fatty, Janice's BLOG. Click to continue.
When the Company transferred me to England, I was shocked to discover that people there love to eat the embryo of certain birds, and slices from the belly of certain animals. And they grind up grass seed, make it into a paste, burn it over a fire, then smear it with a greasy mess they extract from the mammary fluid of certain other animals.
They call it, "a breakfast of bacon and eggs and buttered toast."

Forgive Me for I Have Sinned
I just LOVE cranberry jelly (almost as much as I love my husband) - so while I cooked my Thanksgiving dinner - I 'spooned' an entire can.

Chewing the Fat
Dear OLofWL (Janice) ~ I wrote to you last summer, and as a result of that email, you called me at home. I was really touched by your call. You were so kind and caring. (I'm the person who has Wegener's Granulatmatosis, an auto-immune disease. Been on Prednisone since Feb. 06.)
Since then, I rejoined Weight Watchers, and I'm happy to say that I have lost 5.6 lbs in 4 weeks. I know that's slow, but that's OK with me. At least it's going down, not up! AND, I did not overeat on Thanksgiving! I'm determined to lose this weight, once and for all.
Thank you for that phone call, Janice, and for those inspirational emails I find every Monday morning in my email box, as well as your wonderful book. Love ya, KC, Nashville.
Dear KC ~ YOU are an inspiration. In the face of illness and prednisone, you managed to get it together and make a commitment to yourself! It was truly my pleasure to talk to you last summer. And KC, 5.6 lbs. in 4 weeks is very good. Not slow at all! Congratulations! Keep up the great, great work. ~ OLofWL
Dear OLofWL ~ I was intrigued when reading your blog, particularly the part about the airline rant and the Fruit Ripples that you recently discovered. I went to their website and also to the General Mills website to see where I might find these little gems. They list a bunch of Target stores in my area as the only stores to carry them. I visited at least 3-4 of these stores, and they are not carried there! I live in Danville, CA (94526)...not sure where you are located but wondered where you found them. I even went so far as to write to General Mills and ask them if they would send me a sample so I could try them...nope, won't do it. I'm frustrated because I can't find them or order them anywhere! Any ideas?? Thanks - I love your emails! ~ Judy
Dear Judy ~ Thanks for giving me something new to rant about. Truly, how dumb is that? Making it difficult for people to buy a product - what are they thinking? I probably bought the Fruit Ripples in a health store of some kind or another. I did find a phone number of the Fruit Ripple Site. Here it is: 1-800-248-7310. If you call, tell them Our Lady of Weight Loss sent you. I'm going to call, too! ~ OLofWL
