Loose Ends

Clearing my notepad…

Turn out the lights, the party’s over!
HUGE THANKS to all who joined the Virtual Holiday Potluck!! Liz at Shedding the Fat Suit brought us a tasty souffle for our final dish. Thanks, Liz! I’ll be leaving a button up in my sidebar to access all the recipes.

I thought this went well for our first virtual potluck, so well that I think we’ll do a Virtual Summer Barbecue in June! Stay tuned! :) Meanwhile, Jules at BigGirlBombshell has kindly invited us to a virtual potluck to help her celebrate welcoming the Big 5-0.

Blissdom, Anyone?
If you haven’t heard of it, Blissdom is a blogging conference being held in Nashville, TN on January 26-28. I’ll be there, sponsored or not, and I just found out yesterday that these very fun & interesting people will be there, too: MizFit, bookieboo, Mrs. Fatass, and Mom to the Screaming Masses. Will you be joining us? Please?

The EatSmart Bathroom scale giveaway is open until Thursday, 1/5/11!
Note the date difference. I mistakenly typed 1/3/11 (with a calendar right in front of me) in the original entry, which has since been corrected.

Lots of folks showing up to enter the giveaway and promising not to weigh themselves a dozen times a day if they win. (I suspect some of them had their fingers crossed.) One comment has me wishing I’d included promising not to throw it, smash it with a hammer, take it to the firing range, or run over it with your car. I guess I thought that was implied. :) (Wouldn’t it be awful if the kind and generous EatSmart people suddenly started getting bad reviews because their scale couldn’t withstand a 20-story balcony drop?)

Seriously, thanks to all who took the time to stop by and enter. I wish you great success with whatever scale you use in the new year. If I can ever do anything to help the process along, please let me know! I live to help! (Plus, it keeps me off the streets.)

If you’d like to hedge your bets, Karen at Waisting Time will be kicking off her own scale giveaway tomorrow!

With that, I’m off to walk outside for a bit which will be a nice change from the gym.

Wishing you all one terrific Tuesday!

  1. Hi Cammy,
    How FUN that you are going to Nashville!!! I’ll be there vicariously with you! :)
    Have a great day!!!

  2. Hi Cammy

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments – fellow Leo. I see, by your profile, that you’ve lost 100 pounds. Congrats. That is so inspirational to someone like me who has a lot to lose. New follower here.

  3. Cam my, I always read with envy of the big healthy blogger meet up conferences you have in the USA. They don’t seem to have them here. Unfortunately from Australia, it is a bit far to come :-(

  4. I would love to go to a blogging conference. A bit far away for me, though (like Andrew).
    Look forward to reading your report on it, though. Have fun!

  5. Thanks for the mention:) I would love to go to fitbloggin in May but it is the same week as my son’s HS graduation. Maybe next year.

  6. I’d LOVE to come to this conference, but I’d be totally intimidated. I’d never thought of going to a blogging conference before, but it sounds like fun. Are there usually a lot of people like me or would I be like a lost soul in a sea of experts? Nashville is almost too convenient for me to pass up!!

  7. I got that scale last year and love it. When the company said they could have me give one away, I never knew I would get one too! My other one (probably 15 years old?!) had 5 different readings at any given moment, with about a 15 pound difference!

  8. thanks for the mention! won’t be able to go to the blogging conference but i’m looking forward to reading about it when you do :)

  9. Cammy thanks for checking in on me. You are so inspirational to me. Thanks for the encouragement. I am on my way to keep on losin’.
    Thursday is my weigh-in day…I’m crossing my fingers! It will be the first weigh-in of the year for me.

  10. No money to go anywhere right now so have fun & looking forward to reading about it!

    I wanted to enter for the scale but I do have a decent one so thought best to leave for those that really need a new one…

  11. Oh, Cammy it would be so great to go to that conference – if it wasn’t more than 11 hours away :( I’d love to be able to meet some of my bloggie friends in person. Will look forward to hearing how it went!
