KLONDIKE BARS … MY NO KISS-AND-TELL LOVERS!

This is an excerpt from NO CHEATIN’, JUST EATIN’, a short insight into the crazy world of food and my junk food junkie lifestyle. This excerpt is taken from Chapter 10, Love or Lust. It takes place just as I was getting my feet back under me after going through divorce.

The first thing I did was put the house on the market. That was tough. I’d spent 16 years there, had made many memories there. It had been the dream I’d had for years. Suddenly it was different. Now it was just a house, not a home anymore. I also sold the last two horses, which actually broke my heart more. I just knew I couldn’t keep up a place that size any more. Not by myself.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T WAIT ‘TIL JANUARY TO DIET!

Ok, so Halloween is here and if you haven’t been around candy and goodies yet, you likely will be soon! They’re everywhere! Every office you go into. Every neighbor you visit. Every social gathering you attend. You simply can’t escape it! Then, of course, there’s the candy you buy to give out to the Trick or Treaters … I always buy something I don’t like to minimize my wolfing them down myself. (I always buy Whoppers – don’t like them much. Yet last year there were quite a few left and I polished them all off anyway!)

Chapter 2 from new book “No Cheatin,’ Just Eatin'”

CHAPTER 2 “My God, Girl, Have You Gotten FAT!”

Summer 1976

It was a beautiful summer day as I walked out of the unassuming 7-11 store in tiny, little Whitewater, Wisconsin where I’d spent the first 19 years of my life growing up. Whitewater boasts a population of 12,000 people, a small state university, and lots and lots of farming and milk cows. It was also so small that everyone knew everyone’s business.
