Biggest C&R Loser 2013


Welcome to the 9th week of Biggest C&R Loser 2013! This year we’ll be keeping all of the results and placings secret until the end of the contest. We’ll also be pooling our cash to award the 2013 winner the largest prize we’ve ever awarded … a whopping $40!  This week’s theme is “THE LITTLE THINGS YOU HATE” – Everyone is annoyed by something. What’s one of the ‘little things’ that bother our contestants? Maybe it’s the blobby fat hanging over their waist bands or the way that diet food always tastes awful. Let’s find out what bothers them!



The little things. Little tiny portions. Seriously, look on the package of some of your fave snack foods. 120 calories… for 8 chips. WTF? No one in their right mind eats 8 chips or 1 cookie. Get a grip manufacturers.



Annoyances? I’m annoyed that my weight seems stuck, just fluctuating between two numbers for week after week. And I’m annoyed that I keep forgetting that there’s a blurb due on Wednesdays, so I’m always dealing with these at the 11th hour.



Ya know what bugs me? The fact that junk food is delicious and yet it makes me feel bad about myself! I need liposuction and/or Lap-Band surgery. Too bad I spent my last $5 on this stupid contest.

I hate that I have to wear jeans and long sleeved shirts when it’s 90 degrees because I can’t fit into my shorts and tshirts. So maybe I better get going on this weight loss thing. Summer is just around the corner (especially in San Diego).


little things

Little things that drive me crazy??? Numbers! All I do now for my diet is think about numbers: calories, grams, and amount of time moving. The only numbers that are not small that are driving me crazy are my weight and my pant size. THE HUNGER IS TO BIG TO BE A LITTLE ANNOYING THING.

I hate my job! Was that the question? I’m sick of people and I don’t even have time to diet these days. Somebody pay me to nap and be happy!!



The little thing I hate the most is my own laziness! There is so much that I could accomplish if I were less lazy (the least of which is getting more done for this competition).



This week it’s the little things we hate about the contest. Hmm, I don’t think any of them are little. I HATE being fat in the first place. I hate having to diet. I hate having to exercise when I feel like blobbing on the couch. I hate that the food I’m suppose to eat, I don’t like, and the food I LOVE is bad for me. I hate not looking like a male fashion model. I hate Congressional Republicans and their policies. Wait….I digress….

What I hate most, I think, is the guilt. When I go to bed at night and I realize I haven’t walked, even though I had the time. Or when I order a regular Pepsi at a restaurant instead of just water. Or when I eat a whole freaking (small-sized) pizza instead of a salad. I hate the guilt the comes with it. But I’m used to guilt…I kill it by eating a Cadbury caramel egg!

Thanks to Craig, for basically writing this entire post!

The Perfect Crimes

I’ve always had a guilty conscious.  In elementary school when the teacher would scold the whole class for Nancy’s eraser, I’d feel guilty.  Of course I hadn’t stolen it, but I’d sit there as my face became hotter and hotter, avoiding eye contact.  I probably looked so guilty that the teacher just assumed it was me.

Little did she know that I’ve never done anything wrong in my whole life.  (Aside from a few moving violations,) I’ve never cheated on a test, stolen a candy bar, or snuck into a movie.  I even tell the check-out person when I notice that they forgot to ring one of my items.  If I was to do something wrong, the guilt would probably overwhelm me.  I’d either curl into the fetal position and cry or my head would simply just explode.

That isn’t to say that I haven’t planned perfect crimes in my mind.  I just don’t carry them out.  Here’s three of my favorite Perfect Crimes:

The Reusable Shopping Bag Caper
If you’re like me, you drag those reusable shopping bags along with you every time that you go to the grocery store.  Next time your fingers are feeling slippery, just bring a few extra bags.  Let’s say that you’re buying enough groceries to fill two bags.  Bring four.  As you shop, pick out a few pricey items that come in slim packaging (memory cards, video games, DVD, Blu-ray discs, music CDs, etc.).  Discreetly locate and remove their magnetic alarm tags and slip them into the bottom of your unused bags. Fold up the bags around the soon-to-be-free merchandise and toss them back into your cart.  When you check out your groceries, just be sure not to use those bags.  “Oops, I guess I bought too many bags!”

The Case of the Ship Center Smuggler
Most people that work at office supply stores do their stealing through the front door.  They load up their purses and backpacks and walk out the door.  Pesky managers are always on the lookout for this common swiping technique.  Instead, get a job at the store and request to work at the ship center.  Then you can simply package up your stolen goods!  Have an accomplice come to the store and ship the items to their own house (you don’t want your own name showing up on the evening Ship Center log).  Wait a few days for the shipper to act as your middle-man, and then enjoy your free stolen goods as they’re delivered straight to your door!

A Chilling Case For Murder
I’ve mentioned this on C&R before, but the perfect way to murder someone is with an icicle.  I don’t know why they don’t do it more often on Law & Order!  Think about it — ice doesn’t hold on to your finger prints and it melts!  It’s an untraceable weapon. And don’t worry if it’s too warm outside to find your murder weapon. Just buy an icicle ice cube tray, and you can murder all summer long!

Oh wait — did I just give you step by step instructions for how to steal and murder?  I didn’t mean to!  Please don’t steal anything or murder anyone I like… I’ll feel too guilty.  Instead, tell me all about your perfect crimes in the comments!

Just Another Manic Monday

I’m sick of Facebook.  I think I’d delete my account if it wasn’t my only means of communication with so many people.

I wish the Home Depot in Flemington, NJ was open later than 8pm on Sundays.

Woah, it’s 68 degrees outside!

I’m in the mood for Ritas.

Boca Spicy Chik’n Patties are delicious.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with seedless watermelon.

I’m so proud of myself for not forgetting to take any of my antibiotic pills for seven days straight.  Three more days to go!

I wish I could stop coughing.

After the move, my car was a disaster.  I spent nine dollars at the car wash to vacuum and clean every square inch, inside and out.  Then it rained.

I went to 6 stores yesterday looking for a cheap 8000 BTU window unit air conditioner.  I bought nothing in each of the stores, but managed to abandon a cart in each one of the store’s air conditioner rows.  Sorry 😦

I bought one today at BJ’s Wholesale Club.  $170 felt like the deal of a lifetime.

I moved almost a week ago and am ALMOST finished unpacking.  I’m so lazy for taking so long to unpack!

I need to start dating before I die of old age.

I watched Marley & Me today and balled my eyes out.  It’s a good thing that Spring is immortal.

I finally bought curtains for my living room at Target on Friday.  Now I can walk naked around the whole apartment and no one will ever see me.

Does anyone else feel guilty for using the dishwasher?

I’m tired.

I love my new Kindle.  I finished Sarah Silverman’s The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee and just started Kathy Griffin’s Official Book Club Selection.

My friend told me that Jennifer Aniston’s wardrobe in Marley & Me was supposed to be great.  I didn’t notice at all … does that make me a bad gay?  Oh wait, my new green curtains match two of my throw pillows and a picture on the wall.  I’m good.

Both the Celebrity Apprentice Limited Edition Snapple teas are disgusting.  How hard could it have been?  I could have designed a better flavor than Bret Michaels and Holly Robinson Peete.  I should be the Celebrity Apprentice!

My new apartment smells funny.

I can’t believe that I’m going to be 30 in less than a month.

Have you seen Rainbow Poo yet??

BreathSavers Spearmint 3-Hour Mints are delicious. If I crunch the whole package in 5 minutes, will my breath smell good for days?

Inception looks awesome.

Get Him to the Greek was pretty funny.

In 2 weeks, this ginger will be at the beach for a week.  Someone please ready the vegan sunscreen, SPF 1,000,000.

Fuck you, BP.

Yay, True Blood: season 3 starts next Sunday!

OMG so many thoughts!  It must be a Manic Monday!
