Hello my friends – this is Bacon’s mom June here. Today is my first Monday checking in. Over the weekend, I purged the Hotel Thompson of sugary foods – cookies, soda’s, chips – all of the ‘great’ things we lean upon in a rush. I even got on the scales and weighed myself – thus the scale image of HELP! LOL. At the family meeting last night, we even discussed the game plan and what was in store. Not a DIEt but a change in our lifestyle eating. My husband is even aboard with the exception of Thanksgiving Day. He feels that this holiday is once a year and plans have been made for that day – expensive plans that involve eating at a nice upscale restaurant downtown. So we compromised on that one day.
Other than that, I pledge to eat clean. I pledge to walk more for exercise. I pledge to weigh only once a week on Saturday mornings. I pledge to be honest here on my weekly blog postings. If I have a great week, I will share. If I stumbled and tripped, I will also share.
This journey is not only about losing weight, which I need, but it’s about getting some blood count numbers where they need to be. My cholesterol and LDL are perfect. However, my HDL and A1C are not. As of September, my HDL is a 39 and needs to be over 50. My A1C came back at 9.3 which is high. In order not to take insulin shots, my A1C needs to be at a 7 or below. My next blood work will be in January/February 2016. I CAN DO THIS!
With your help, guidance, hugs and/or a swift kick in the bum, I CAN DO THIS! Losing weight will help towards these goals. In reality, I would love to lose 100 pounds. Is this possible – sure – slow and steady wins the race, right? So my friends, now you know what’s in store.
Are you up to the challenge of helping me and being my support system?
Much love ❤ June ❤

Mommy said the strangest thing to me last night. Mommy said that I was a member of the clean plate club. I wasn’t sure what she meant until daddy explained it me mumbling something about eating him out of house and home. Rolls piggy eyes – he so exaggerates.
But of course I am a member of the Clean Plate Club. I mean really, I’m a pig. I ain’t leaving nothing behind food wise. Sometimes when I eat my apples in the front room one will roll up underneath the couch or fireplace ledge. Heck, you should see me going after. There should be no food left behind in my trough – I mean plate.
Momma even calls me her little hoover. I go around the floor sniffing out any scrap of a crumb. Dad says I’m better than vacuuming. If it’s out there – it’s in my tummy!
Are you a member of this elite Clean Plate Club?

My friend Fozzie and I were talking the other night about shopping prices from around the world and how different they are. Don’t forget to do your posting tomorrow, Wednesday, April 30, 2014. Post what you can – have fun!
It should be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over. Show your prices for the following:
- Loaf of bread
- Gallon of milk
- Dozen eggs
- Gas per gallon
- Movie ticket
- At the movies, how much are the concessions?
- McDonald’s cheeseburger
- Jar of peanut butter
- A can of Fancy Feast cat food
Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, April 30, 2014.
And work with the list however you can. If you don’t have gallons, show what you do have. Have fun my friends and I’ll see you tomorrow!
