Day 1 of DIEt

11 Nov

 God help us here at the Hotel Thompson.

Dad just called mommy at the worky place to check on her and how she is doing on day 1 of the great DIEt.  She snarled.  No really.  She snarled.  She told daddy quote, “This detox crap sucks to the high *$*!))”  Yep, I can’t repeat that last part.  Poor mom.

She’s eating but visions of what she wants versus what she is getting is not putting pictures of sugar plum in her mind.  If only carrots tasted like her favorite food – then all would be well in the world.

I’m thinking daddy may have to fix her a big drink and have it ready when she gets home.  Something that is not fattening but something that she likes… pondering.  Perhaps a Bloody Mary with green olives.  Tomato juice is good, vodka is good and who wouldn’t want that mixture together after a first day?  Thoughts?

    Boo! Diet. The worst four letter word ever. Seriously. I’ve tried them all. Nothing really works but eating less and moving more. I quit dieting to eat what makes my body feel good, which means almost no wheat products. Bread, pasta, crackers, cereal…minimal to none. One day at a time.

      I completely get you. Mommy needs to find a good in between. I don’t like it when she turns into devil mommy. I’ll have to be extra nice to her tonight. XOXo – Bacon

    Me and Nellie know all about this DIEt lark. Last year Nellie had to go on an anti-whale diet. According to our VET on a scale of 1 – 9, one being starving and 9 being a whale. Nellie scored an 8, hence the diet. No more tasty, yummy calorie laden dog roll. Oh no, We were reduced to doggy biscuits, carefully counted out. Five for Nellie and eight for Me, twice a day. BUt We must say that now We have nice doggy figures and the VET is very pleased with our weights. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

      I’m thinking I’m going to have to ration out mom’s biscuits then. Some food is better than going cold turkey for her. She’s a bear without her food. Worse than me! Can you believe that? XOXO – Bacon

    Uh-oh. Mama says that alcohol is sugar so best avoided to lose weight. She says very dark chocolate would be a good treat cuz it is low fat and low sugar. Mama says me and Nalle have been getting an awful lot of treats lately (how can treats be awful?) and we may have to go treat less for a bit. Oh NOooowoooooooo!

      That is true. I just don’t get it. Mommy stepped on the scales this past Saturday and they said get off! Personally, I think it sounded an awful like daddy but mommy took it to heart. She went through the house this weekend getting rid of all of the ‘good stuff’. What she didn’t toss, she made daddy hide from her. This can’t end well my friend. XOXO – Bacon

    Bloody Mary sounds actually good, and most important the red stuff is a veg, so it must be healthy and good for you :-0
    give a big hug to Mum, diets aren’t fun

      That’s what daddy says. She has to eat more veggies – why not sip them instead? snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Drink Bloody Mary’s til you can’t stand up then you won’t think about food. I was on a diet and I just chased squirrels and barked my head off till I was to pooped to move, than never though about food just sleep till the next Day!

      hhmm – I wonder if mom can chase her guys around at work? She’s already barking her head off at them – snorts XOXO – Bacon

    Yes, yes, Bacon. A HUGE drink! But be careful, and walk on eggshell hooves! Things could be strange for a while!

    • PigLove

      11/11/2013 at 6:48 pm

      Very strange indeed. She’s like the devil and angel combined. Kind of like when she calls me sweet Bacon and deviled ham – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Mummy needs to go on one of those too, but we are all too afraid of how she’ll cope on chocolate withdrawal – it could be bad!!
    Good luck to your mummy xx

    • PigLove

      11/11/2013 at 6:49 pm

      Mom had no chocolate and no soda today. Both of those withdrawals in the same day = shivers. I’m sure she was a bear at work with the big boys. I kind of felt sorry for them. XOXO – Bacon

    It isn’t fair gaining weight is easy for most people but losing it hard!!!
    I definitely believe in a “20 min walk, 3 times a weeks” makes a big difference!

    • PigLove

      I think mom will get there…maybe next week. Baby steps for her. I’m giving her extra loving tonight. XOXO – Bacon

    Tell your mom to walk out her frustrations. I’m a part of a walking program at work where our goal is 10,000 steps a day. Detox may not be best, maybe she can do baby steps and do portion control.

    • PigLove

      11/12/2013 at 7:14 am

      I think you may be right my friend. Baby steps, smaller portions and more walking. I think I’m going to suggest that to her. Thanks!! XOXO – Bacon

      • peacelovenwhiskers

        She can try to track her food and workouts on for free. I’m using it.

      • PigLove

        11/12/2013 at 7:25 am

        That’s fantastic! Thanks my friend. I will definitely give her this information. It might be very helpful to her. Thanks! XOXO – Bacon

        Let me know if she joins I can friend her.

    I am definitely for the tomato juice, vodka and green olives. Oh, and moving more. Walk walk walk.

    • PigLove

      11/12/2013 at 7:16 am

      Yep. She walked tonight… While drinking her Bloody Mary. Okay – we are getting half way there. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    The Hotel Thompson is waaayyyyy too funny! Ima love your family’s sense of funny Bacon. I never considered drinking my afternoon 5 ounce glass of wine for my ticker while doing my heart healthy laps. Maybe I could put the wine in a sippy cup. Walk Sip Walk Sip Walk Sip Sip *snorts*

    • PigLove

      11/12/2013 at 7:39 am

      Uh-oh. I think mommy has started a new kind of diet huh? Snorts. I love it. She did come back home after her walk a lot happier. XOXO – Bacon

    I feel with you… girls on diet are like a natural disaster and you can do nothing expect to give them a wide berth. Mom condemned dad to be her “partner in crime” and we had the biggest core melt accident ever as she caught him in the act during a eating orgy in front of the fridge.

    • PigLove

      11/12/2013 at 11:20 am

      Oh no. That reminds me of the last time mom went on this ridiculous DIEt ordeal. I caught her eating a chocolate pudding pop straight from the fridge. The light from the fridge made her angelic but I busted her in the process. We can’t have another melt down like that… especially without me. XOXO – Bacon

    What I have learned is to do what is sustainable, long term. “Slow and steady wins the race.” And a bloody mary might help! Or the sugar rush from the alcohol will cause you to float to the atmosphere. Either way, right? ;oP

      Snorts. I’m glad to report that mom has tweaked her way of living and is (A) cutting back and not going cold turkey – thank goodness for all of us that have to live with her here at the Hotel Thompson 🙂 and (B) accepting life. It’s a good thing. She is watching what she eats in moderation. I am so glad to see it. She’s worked hard on her pot belly and well I’m kind of fond of it – snorts. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
