    Loved this post!

  21. When the spouse starts taking pictures of meals for you ... Husband did that last week. It tripped me out.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sadly, I will never have a problem with:
    •You ask your doctor if he can give you something for “blogger’s block”?

    I can always chatter about something--and do.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Random everyday occurrences prompt your spouse to ask, "You're not going to put this on the internet, are you?"

    ReplyDelete
  24. My partner calls you all my fake friends. You're not fake, are you?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ha ha!!!! So true, I probably need blog addiction therapy, although, I fear my case is likely hopeless ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. WOW... this is hillarious. I love it. I think the scariest of them all is that I know what six random people ate for not only breakfast, but for lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts. I think I have a problem... thanks for pointing it out :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOL. LOL. Are you Jack Tw*t Getting Fit on Twitter?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hilarious! And I'm sooooo guilty of some of these!

    Might as well face it, I'm addicted to blog.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hey, I resemble those remarks!

  37. Every time I mention a "friend" my boyfriend asks me "facebook or blog ... and have you ever actually MET them?"

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's me to a T! I'm forever making notes about things to blog and tweet about!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's especially bad when you refer to other weight loss bloggers as your "friends". As in, while telling a story to other people about something, you grab an example from a blogger and refer to them as your friend.

    I gotta stop that.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I must say, I am happy to know I am not the only blogger that is completely addicted to other peoples dieting blogs. I am addicted to weight loss and I think I need help! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Weight loss is no joke. It's everywhere. Everyone wants to do it. And everyone's talking about it. Weight loss is the "in" thing. I think :P

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh my heck! I've done a bunch of these!
