What Brown Did For Me

My UPS guy dropped off the Biggest Loser scale I won in a giveaway recently held by Lady Lap Band. The box was so well packed, Bed Bath and Beyond really go out of their way to package their shipments. Under all of the packing material was pretty white tissue paper printed all over with soft purple stars. The scale, it's self was wrapped in pretty wrap and tied with a purple satin ribbon and bow. There was also a lovely little gift card with a message. It was lovely and like receiving a present.

The scale is nice. It is small and low profile, which I love, it makes it easy to use and store in my tiny kitchen. It works great and, has enough features to be very useful but is easy, peasy to use. A must for this tech challenged chica. :D

 My scale, all wrapped in pretty paper and ribbon. 

In use. Weighing my apple pear. (All apple pears that come into this house are mine. lol)

It is a cool day, breezy and clouds rolling in. I am hoping for more rain. :D

Food is okay... I am sitting at just over 900 calories, so far. I would be happier with myself if it were a bit lower. But it is by no means a catastrophe. I will still come in on target for the day and that is what counts. :D

I have housework to do but I am being a lazy slag and not doing it. I did make my bed and run my dishwasher. But not much else is getting done. I'll get at it, tomorrow. I am just not in the mood, today. 

My head is bad, again. I was getting flashing pindots and bigger, coloured circles in front of my eyes yesterday and last night and today, it is all rock and roll in my brain. Urgh! I had a few days break, tho for which I am grateful. This last head storm was a long, rough one. I am hoping that this one isn't as bad. We'll see.

Okay, I think I will go troll my blogroll and read everyone's updates. Later, lovies. :D


  1. Awesome. I've got a cheap little scale that I bought years ago that isn't very accurate. I hope you feel better. I used to get really bad miagranes and they suck.

  2. My new goal is to weigh myself on that scale !! A little too much, ya think...

  3. Sounds like a nice, relaxing day. Love it! And I'm super jealous of the new scale AND the apple great! I tried my first apple pear a week or two ago and fell in love. MMMM!!

  4. Lovey - what do you take for your migraines? I hate that you get them so much!

  5. Allen, Bwahahahaha!

    Stacey, a food scale really does make a difference. I was madder than a hornet when my old dial one died on me. I used it all the time.

    Dizzy, I am addicted to apple pears and I nom as many as I can get my hot little hands on while they are in season. Nobody gets between me and my apple pear! :D

    Draz, I don't take anything. I just grin and bear them. If I take a pain reliever for another purpose, my hips, for example, it might help take the edge off my head, too. But the rebound isn't worth the slight, temporary relief. I am better off just rolling through them as best I can. I am used to them and most of the time I can function. Sometimes they will put me down, tho. *shrug* It is what it is.

  6. I left an award for you on my blog.

  7. ok, i don't mean to out myself, but wtf is an applepear? is that like the bisexual of fruit or what?

  8. Cool scale. I've never tried a pear apple. Maybe now is the time to try 'em!

  9. RNTG, an apple pear is an Asian pear. It is kind of a cross between apples and pears. They are very crisp, juicy and sweet with a unique, lovely flavour. They are coming into season, right now and are pretty widely available and priced well, too. I encourage you to try them. :D

    Lanie, you must get some! They are fab. :)

  10. Awe it was packaged so pretty BBY did a good job lol. You take nice photographs as well!!!!


  11. It was such a pretty package! My scale definitely didn't come in such a cute way! Yea, for new toys.
