Weigh in

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I had a great day yesterday. I wasn't able to host Thanksgiving, because my dining room furniture arrived damaged and had to be returned. The location changed to my parent's house and it was perfect. My mom found recipes on Oprah's website and decided to use them for the Turkey, stuffing and sweet potatoes. We all kept joking that if everything turned out bad it was Oprah's fault and we were going to write a letter.

Everything turned out wonderful and then the joke turned into we are eating exactly what Oprah's is eating right now. How cool are we.

This morning I woke super early. Must be due to all my little cat naps yesterday and I had the pleasure of a leisurely morning reading all of my celeb filled magazines.

I found this latest website in my reading this morning and I don't know whether or not to think this site is cool or completely horrible.

You can now log on to Weight View and upload a picture of yourself for free and this site will make your image thinner by 50 pounds. Part of me thought it was a clever tool to try and help you lose weight. Instead of posting pictures up of models you want to look like. You can post a picture of the new you to help you maintain your goal of weight loss. Another part of me was completely out-raged over how obsessed we are with weight and the issues that woman have with their bodies.

I'm still not sure about how I feel about it. I haven't logged on to check out my pic, but I'm still tempted to do it and see what I would look like 50 pounds lighter.

Way to mess with a girls mind.

50 pounds??? That's quite a bit- usually it's the "10-20 pounds" that you are always talking about losing! 50 pounds?! I'd probably have to go on Survivor to ever lose that.

Here's the problem I have with all these so-called before and after pics - is that they don't show you the after after pics when you've gone on some or other ridiculous diet regime just to lose the weight and then had it all rebound right back again.

Camila, I know there is no way you need to see yourself 50 pounds lighter.

I'm glad that you had a great Thanksgiving, Oprah would be proud!
