how much does a pint of blood weigh?

A few of you have wondered what I had for dinner last night. Here is a copy of an email I just sent – be warned it’s a bit ‘more than you really wanted to know’.

egads Vicki – I completely and totally blew WW to hell yesterday. The day started off with the French Toast, which was delicious & indulgent but still manageable within the whole WW scheme of things. However, Boar and I went for a stroll through a lovely little town by us and I was overcome with a hamburger urge – much in the manner of Wimpy from Popeye.

We went to this place called the American Burger Company and had burgers and fries. They were so damn good and so damn decadent.

I then came home and immediately got my period.

my only hope for weight loss this week is the fact that I seem to be bleeding to death.

  1. I think a gallon of milk weighs 8 pounds… does that help?

    Sometimes you just gotta! ; ) It sounds like you enjoyed it and, hell, it was Mother’s Day!!!

  2. Didn’t you hear? Mother’s Day is free points day, at least that’s what I told myself as I ate my Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream at the movies.

  3. A pint’s a pound the world around.

    However, it would be highly unlikely you’d lose a pint of blood for your period. If so, you need to get to a hospital!

  4. I went through that same issue every month for about five years. Finally went and had the plumbing removed. Best thing I ever did. Oh, there was a medical need for the surgery. I had an issue that was causing the heavy bleeding.

  5. You’ve got to eat those decadent things every so often, just so you don’t feel completely deprived, right? Just not as often as I tend to. Sheeesh!

    How long do you think it will be before all of us knitters synchronize with one another? Heehee. Because it looks like you and I are well on the way.

  6. I’m happy to hear that you got your french toast. When I mentioned the Boar’s dinner plans to my dh he immediately knew what it reminded me of. He knows he’ll never live it down. By the way, my 25th was well over a decade ago!

  7. When I was on W.W. ( many moons ago) I always felt that one good day of cheating actually gave me a Big drop the next day! ?? As for the ole pint- you better get your (skinny) ass to the dr! Ann!
    also you were right near hubbys shop with that burger joint!

  8. Mother’s Day is definitely a Zero Points day. Isn’t it in the manual?

    And you’ll probably lose more this week. I was actually severely annoyed when that happened (although, yeah, overjoyed) because it wrecked my “stick to the pts mindset”.
