Weigh-in Wednesday

Do you think that if I cook my way through Supermarket Vegan, and blog about my experiences, they'll make a movie about me?

Doesn't that have a nice ring to it? Cha-ching!!

Well, movie or not, I have been working my way through this great cookbook, and apparently the recipes are agreeing with me -- I lost two more pounds this week. That brings me to 25 pounds lost since March 7!

I'm really excited about that.

I'm also excited about another book I'm reading, and if you came across this blog because, like me, you have had "issues" with food, then you should pick up a copy. I haven't finished it yet, but I can already tell you I'll be reading Women Food and God at least one more time. I've been a big fan of Geneen Roth's for ages. And when I say ages, I mean I've been reading her stuff since the late 80's. So when I'd heard she was coming out with a new book, and then learned she'd be discussing it on Oprah, I was very interested.

This book is most certainly speaking to me. Her others did, too, but maybe I wasn't in the right place yet to hear what they were saying? I mean, I just told you I've been reading her stuff for 20+ years, but I clearly still don't have a handle on my weight nor have I managed to lose weight and actually keep it off. But, I'm listening now, and I'd love to discuss some of Geneen's ideas with you. Let me know if you are reading or have read this exceptional book!

I just finished reading it last week and posted about it on my blog.

I liked it. Will it help? Feels like I've heard it all before but I'm hopeful :)

Congratulations! 25 pounds is fantastic. How about you cook your way through my book? You could call it..."Beets and Peas?"

Have a great day!!!
