magazines at grocery checkout

No, this is not a rant against scantily clad cover models, sensationalist celebrity gossip, R rated teasers, constant Obama mania stories, but my own personal addition to them:

Lose 17 pounds in 1 week!
Eat all you want and still lose weight!
Cookies, cakes, ice cream diet!

*in tiny print on page 32: must be willing to gain 35 pounds over previous 9 months. As a bonus gift for using our weight loss method you will receive a brand new adorable baby.

I highly recommend the overnight baby diet. There's nothing quite like losing 10 lbs. in a couple of hours. Of course, it IS hard work - probably as much works as a month of daily gym workouts, condensed.

Of course, then there's the "someone else did the cooking baby weight gain diet" that follows...

Good one. Still looking forward to this diet. Any day now. sigh.

Katherine, where did you find maternity clothes? Mine are getting old! Thanks, Alicia

Alicia, I too am starting to have to pitch worn out maternity clothes because the elastic is getting worn out. I have found great stuff at the thrift shop, including a pomegranate colored zippered sweatshirt that went over everything. I don't like the new style of low slung pants, I want my belly covered!
