Z"L "70 pounds to go"

I killed my other blog. It only had two posts and was suffering from “failure to thrive.” I’m only mentioning it here since I got a couple e-mails when it went away. The best one was the woman who said: “If you were pregnant with a Downs syndrome baby, you wouldn’t get rid of it, would you?”

Thanks for comparing my blog to a pregnancy. To her credit, I don’t think she knew what my “other blog” was about.

In a nutshell: I need to lose 70 pounds to be a “healthy weight” and I actually gained 20 on WeightWatchers. WeightWatchers is not my friend.

That’s pretty much all the blog said. I’ve added a ticker at the bottom of the main page that will track my weight loss (or — eek — gain), for those of you who are interested.

Oh: Z”L stands for zichrono livracha – or roughly, may it’s memory be for a blessing. I guess you could say it’s the Jewish equivalent of rest in peace.

Edited to add: “rest in peace,” not “rest in peach” like I originally wrote. Though I guess there could be worse places to rest.

  1. I gained a lot of weight on Weight Watchers, because to make the minimum number of points, I had to eat MORE than usual. It just wasn’t for me. Weight Watchers fanatics tell me I must have been doing something wrong, but I don’t believe them.
