"The Delicious"

So last weekend I finally gave in to the lure of facebook (had a cool group form while auditioning for Biggest Loser[more stories about this coming soon!] and wanted to keep up with them) and then while trying to see what Mafia Wars was all about (still don't know because I couldn't get past the name screen) I had to figure out a mafia name (because Jolene is just not villainous enough) so I went to the Sopranos Mafia Name Website and apparently my Mafia Nickname is: The Delicious. This cracks me up for two, it has food undertones (Tony Soprano really does know me afterall) and two, it makes all the times I told someone to "bite me" worthwhile.....because I AM "The Delicious"....if you mess with me you might come away with a wierd taste of chocolate and 100 calorie treats!

Now I know that Tony Soprano really isn't watching me....however it was quite a blow to have a "food name" come up for a nickname (so much so that I still haven't gotten past the name screen....yes, I could pick something else but...) and it has me thinking about how much food rules my life. As a food addict, I think, dream, breathe, and process in food. It is one of the first things I think about and while finishing one meal I am already thinking about what I am going to eat next, I even "speak" fluent food. As my 'new normal' I am trying to get this under control and put food in the category it fuel for my body to function but not as a end all be all and certainly not as an entertainment, comfort, lover and friend! I have many wonderful role models in this quest, lots of friends who have lost over 100 pounds and kept them off---Marina, Nick, Nicole, and Kris to name a few, plus many more who are on this journey. Need to remember that food is just food. SO TAKE THAT TONY SOPRANO! Image and video hosting by TinyPic

  1. LOL "The Delicious"!! That's ironic and hilarious, you're right, on so many levels. My husband always asks me how I can think about food when I haven't even finished my current meal. LOL
