Crazy Dieting! & Awards Post!

Why do we do this to ourselves? Tune in to hear some the crazy diets we have tried. Believe it or not, this is the short list! What crazy diet have you tried?

Remember our movie club? We will be posting our "Blind Side" video in the coming week. So grab a friend and go out to see it. The movie is truly fabulous! You won't want to miss it!!
Now it is time to hand out a few awards...

LMJ at I've Been Thinking gave us the Happy 101 Award. We love her honesty about her life, and her adorable little baby girl. Thanks LMJ!

We got this lovely award from iwonderwye. She is the real deal too. I love people that have some hardship under their belt, and from those experiences have gained a positive perspective on what life is really about. She lives from that place and is truly thankful. We love you and thank you!

So as I mentioned last the name of holiday giving...we are offering the following blogs a shopping spree. Pick one of the awards you would most like to have above as a gift from us!

*La Vita e' Bella

We appreciate all of our readers so much. We realize you could spend your time on a thousand other thank you for choosing to hang out with us. Have a terrific weekend!


Martha in PA said...

Ah, thanks! I'm honored!
I really enjoy you two. Wish I could vlog. My voice is terrible (paralyzed vocal cord, sound like I have laryngitis all the time) so no one would want to listen!

ShellSpann said...

Aww thanks! My first blog award, I'm so excited!!!! :)

Ed Adams said...

Thanks Ladies.

I always knew I was Gorgeous, but it's nice to know you agree with the millions of other ladies who constantly tell me I am in my dreams and stuff.

Also, the things you two talk about never cease to amaze me.

Personally, I get all my diet tips from Oprah. She's an expert.

Coincidentally, I also get all my weight gain tips from Oprah. She's an expert.

Kathy said...

Thanks for thinking of us, girls! Seashell and I will be going to the movies soon to see "Blind Side", we have wanted to see it since Thanksgiving.

Midday Escapades said...

Oh man don't get me started on diets. I've tried quite a few myself. I'm glad I found Weight Watchers.

Wow, thanks for my award. I'll keep it a surprise and let you know which one I pick when I post it tomorrow. Come on by 'cause I'll have something for ya right back.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

The only diet I ever use is Weight meetings, just count points when my jeans are tight. I will be counting those points after the holidays for sure! I already should drop will only be worse by January:)


ScoMan said...

I heard of someone doing a South African Sea Water Salt diet or something recently. I'm not exactly sure what it was, but it sounded weird. It just involved drinking a lot of water with this special salt in it, which might come back to the Saltine one.. maybe salt is good for weight loss.

I like the idea of the movie club, but being about 6 months behind in movie released from the States, I'd be talking about some movie and you'd all be like "Yeah, we're over that"

MJ said...

oh boy - a topic near and dear to my heart. I have tried SO many things since I was a Junior in High School. Pills of all kinds. The Cabbage Soup diet, what I termed the Peanut Butter diet (all I ate was PB - well for th most part), Chicken and rice diet. I could go on but I will say a flexible menu I have from Thin and Healthy has been the best because it taught me the right portion sizes and allows some choices.

kys said...

I thought I'd done them all till you said the hot dog diet!

Raoulysgirl said...

* Diet: If I tell you that I never ever did a diet; I am a tall "girl", and have got the same weight since I am 25 years old?? I eat a lot of cookies(!!) and a lot of healthy mediterranean food....!!!, I forgot about the HOLLYWOOD DIET when I was 19 and lived in NY Upstate for studies:
my swedish friend convinced me:
(never ever do's completely crazy!!)
....I didn't have to loose weight and quit soon: the swedish girl lost a few kilos and never ever eat pineapples again.....!!
ciao elvira

Your post highlights why everyone should just "Fire Their Diet!"

Just like you mentioned in the video, you become obsessed with what you are eating, and even worse - what you're not eating!!

So everything in moderation = Good Health!

JennyMac said...

Congrats on your awards and to all the winners. I have one for you two as well. Put on your party dresses and come over to he Awards Bash.

5thsister said...

Decisions, decisions! I'll surprise you all in an upcoming post! Thanks!

Traci said...

Congratulations on the awards and to those you chose. You guys are so terrific.

And I second the call to see "Blind Side". It's terrific!

Corrie Howe said...

Great awards and great blogs. I went with my friend to Blindside last night. Can't want to see your video. Loved the movie. I love Sandra Bullock anyway.

My name is PJ. said...

I can't add to the list of crazy diets; however, I not only enjoyed listening to you guys talk about it, I read some crazy stuff in your comments too!

Faith Imagined said...

BTW, I gave you a you both an award over at my place!

LMJ said...

I took these crazy diet pills that made me lose 13 pounds in one week!!! I got scared and threw them away! It's not healthy to lose that many pounds in such a short time.

I never liked doing diets. I changed my eating habits and began counting calories. I lost 55 pounds in 8 months. I did it the healthy way (healthy meals 5 times a day and exercise).

I took natural diet pills for a whole week, to help me suppress hunger. After that, I did it on my own. I didn't want to depend on anything to lose weight. Of course, I got pregnant and gained 47 pounds. I gotta start all over again--but I'll wait till Christmas is over.

Holly said...

I tried the hot dog diet...I totally remember the saltines and the plain tuna...yuck! I also tried the Thrifty Ice Cream diet...apparently my own invention...workout like crazy for an hour and the eat 1/2 of a 1/2 gallon of mint chip ice cream...
results...just about as good as the hot dog diet.

PS Merry Christmas

I have a little bling to hand out over on my blog. Please come by and retrieve.

Erin said...

I loved the Blind Side, too!!

I can't really add anything to the diet diatribe, but very funny.

Congrats to you on your awards & I'm off to check out some of the new peeps you mentioned!

Jenn Erickson said...

Hi gals, I really like the way you chose to distribute the awards! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to watch the video because I'm trying to sneak a moment to catch up with my favorite blogs for work (and we don't have a video card or a sound card in these old machines). I was thinking today about what fun I had watching your smoothie segment and it gave me an idea. I started selling some of my chocolate transfer sheets in my Etsy store. I'd love to see you guys do some chocolatiering with them in one of your wonderful video segments. If you're ever interested in playing around with a few, let me know. I'll send them, gratis of course. I think your fans would get a huge kick out of it!
