Am I the only one who thinks those sound like a new type of chubby toy?

Like Teletubbies, but much nastier?

So, I finally heard back from my nutritionist on the dreaded obesegens.

Here's what she had to say:

"There is some truth in this article – about endocrine disruptors (Nicholas Kristof at the Times has written extensively on that), the dangers of plastic and phthalates, in particular. But, they really overstate the case about these chemicals as a cause of obesity. Something to blame, an easy answer. Well, there are no easy answers, which you probably knew. And, there certainly isn’t enough evidence AT PRESENT to support some of the claims made. Future research may shed more light on these compounds and probably, the less the better. But, the old calorie equations (in vs. out) still reigns supreme when it comes to weight control."

I read that and thought, OOHhhgreat.

So there is something to it, but not too much. Oy vey.

Sometimes you just want to smack your head into a wall over this weight loss stuff. It's so frustrating!

Biked to and from work today, and it felt great.

Still no dress for the wedding, but hair appointment tomorrow.

One step at a time, right?

Lori suggested a body shaper, I may go that route. It really depends on the heat here in NYC. If it's over 90 degrees again, I don't think I could take it.
