I am wanting to change the name of this blog to something that doesn't have the word 'diet' in it. "Margie's Diet Dialogue" is cute, but its got the "d" word in it so I am looking for something else. This is no longer a "diet" as Thea from Shrinking Jeans so eloquently put it. This is a quest to get healthy. I haven't come up with a new name yet, but it will be changed.

My weight, however, didn't change. I guess that is a good thing since it didn't go up, but I would prefer a loss. I know the reason - no exercise. For whatever reason, my butt didn't make it to the gym or even off the couch for that matter, except to go to work and other necessities. So, now I have to make exercise a necessity.

This is where priorities come in and we have to make them into habits. I would never think of leaving the house without brushing my teeth, so why do I think that "not" exercising is okay? Its not okay and I have to make it part of my daily routine. I know - that's easier said than done, but it is what it is. I have to make it not be a chore. Chores are things that we have to do but may not like and I don't want to look at it as a chore. Exercise should be something I do for my heart just like brushing is something I do for my teeth. Keep them healthy or lose them. Hey, now that may be the way to look at it. Its cool how just sitting here typing my thoughts makes me come up with the right frame of mind. So now I have a new motto - "Keep it Healthy". Maybe that should be the new name for my blog!!

Hope all the Losers at Shrinking Jeans do well this week. Come On Gang - Lets Keep It Healthy.


  1. Hey Margie!! That would be a good name for your blog:)

    After I had me first baby, I wanted to exercise. Now, I am just to lazy. I need to start thinking of it like a must. Just like you said...brushing your teeth.

    Go Team Lime!! Let's Keep It Healthy!!

  2. exercise can be addicting - hopefully you'll find something to do that you love. and good for you for banishing the "D" word!

  3. Totally loving that you're getting rid of the word "diet"! I am of the mindset that "a diet is not something you're on, a diet is how you eat!"

    And get in an exercise routine! You won't regret it!
