Gee Thanks Mom, Those Things Sure Help With My Diet

I don't personally do the grocery shopping for our home, 
so I have no say over the things that are bought.

Sure I can ask for specific things that I would like to have around maybe some fresh fruits or vegetables (which are currently lacking in this home).

Well these are some of the things in my kitchen right at this very moment that are beckoning me.

"Come to us, it's midnight and you are so very hungry and thirsty!"
"No" I say to these deliciously loathsome snack foods. "You are not good for my IRWTSMN diet."

Barq's Root Beer is my kryptonite.

It has chocolate mousse and a chocolate cookie crust under that cream. I want to cry :(
PS: None of those missing pieces are from me, no really, I'm serious!

I would get one healthy part out of this snack. Milk, well only the milk that gets soaked up in the cookie.
Like I would ever drink milk that was dunked in.

I could eat the whole bag in one sitting, but I will not touch them.
My brother and his friends can eat all the chips in the house. I don't want them *sigh*

Really 2 Boxes of Fruity Pebbles, 2 Boxes of Cocoa puff's (one is generic)
MutherEffing Cookie Crisp, I used to beg and beg for these cereals, when I was 5, now I only eat the Cheerios

Look's innocent enough, raisins are healthy and it even has 50% more of them, sadly this bread is not.

I'm trying my damnedest to stick to my IRWTSMN diet plan. It's working but it is very hard to stay away from these delicious food offerings. It also doesn't help when my BFF calls me up, she can break my resolve with one conversation and this is one we just had two days ago
BFF- "Let's get Tastee Freeze" (local ice cream place, that rocks, btw)
Me- "No I'm on this 'If Rob Were to See Me Naked' diet."
BFF- "WTF is that, you can't be serious, let's get ice cream it's 98% Fat Free!"
(It doesn't help that she's a twi-hater and doesn't get the appeal of the pretay! Ugh!!!)

I am going to be honest here and tell you all how that conversation ended. Me with a strawberry sunday practically licking the cup clean and by practically I mean literally, I'm so ashamed.

I feel my resolve crumbling every day but then I see this

And I think to myself, "Self, Rob is right step away from the Root Beer and Pie and everything will be alright."

The ice cream was one slip up and now the above pic of Rob is placed strategically above my calendar so I will see it on my way to the fridge or on my way out the door and with the power of Rob I shall get through.

FA (fat ass) Goals

Hey!  It's Tess, from TNT!  
I would like to thank the Twilight Junkies girls for inviting us over here!  
This should be a great partnership with our diet plan...IRWTSMN™.  

Have you asked yourself that "what if" question today?  
Well, if not, then you should.  
It will make you drop that donut, push away from the pasta, and move your ass.  
It's a fail proof way of becoming a tad less voluptuous.  
Trix and I have been using this method for a while now and if used consistently, 
it really does work!  
I've made some motivational pictures for myself.  
I'll share a few of them with you today...

Please feel free to use these in anyway you see fit.  Review mirror in your car.  Refrigerator (if you can get by with hubby frowned on this idea).  Bathroom mirror.  Desk at work. Etc, Etc.
I'll have some more for you guys on this week's IRWTSMN™ post this Thursday.

Don't forget about your goals for the small or big as they may be.

My individual goals are:
1. Drink more water.
2.  Eat out less for lunch.

Simple enough.  Hopefully, I can succeed.

Good luck, girls!

If you are heading over here from my Twilight Junkies Anonymous blog, then you already know about IRWTSMN on Trixie and Tess's blog!  If not - then head on over there and read all about it.

This is blog that my sister Barb and I put together back in January when were turning over our New Year's leaf.  If you are interested in using this blog as a place to vent or talk about diety/Twilight things please let me know.    Just drop me an email at
As you can see, my last post was in June.  
But since we are all starting the IRWTSMN diet, I thought I should try to start posting here again.
