It's Everyone Can Bite Me Friday!

This is the 'old' Martha Jane and Celebrity Fit Club's Ant. It was taken over 2 years ago here in LA. MJ is a friend of mine who lives in Honolulu and always signs off her comments with Aloha. She's also the longest reader of my blog, poor thing. (that sentence is crafted poorly so bite me)MJ's really acting in the picture below because Ant? She's not a fan. Look at her eyes boring into me saying I HATE YOU because I made them stand together and I KNEW she had a problem with him. But it made for a better picture, no? Something to laugh at later? Hello? Anyone? This is the 'new' Martha Jane. She just lost 50 pounds and got a new haircut.

" I have no problem w/you putting in the “fat photo” from the comedy reunion. Oh, and you might want to say that what really “stunned” me was when I was at Costco trying to load a 40-pound box of cat litter into the market basket. I could barely hoist it. Then it dawned on me. I HAD BEEN CARRYING AROUND 10 MORE POUNDS THAN THAT! WHAT HAD I DONE TO MYSELF?

How did this all happen? Basically, I have figured out that aliens invaded my brain, insidiously like spyware or a computer virus, causing me to ignore my body. Mercifully, the aliens apparently retreated and maybe went to someone else’s brain (perhaps Kirstie Alley’s, I don’t know).

The way I did it was Weight Watchers, which as you may know, has a plan that does not forbid adult beverages. You just have to count their points. Some people like their other plan which is all-you-can-eat-of-certain-foods-but-no-booze. Puh-leezzzeee. I’ve never been one who is into suffering of any kind. But it’s taken me over a year and a half to do it and I have 20 more to go."

Cheers MJ!

  1. Congrats MJ! My friend was doing weight watchers and she used to take her points calculator with her to the liquor store to figure the points on different wines. It was hysterical.

  3. I love the first photo, the look of I'm going to kill you is classic! Congrats to your weight loss! I'm a firm believer in WW, carrying on extra 35lb around like a new baby. Good luck with your last little bit left you look amazing.

  4. A true transformation. I also agree that WW is the only weightloss system that works. It helped me lose 50 lbs. of baby weight.

    Looking great!

  5. Way to go, Martha Jane! That's impressive. And I love how your comments are always signed with Aloha. Makes me happy.

  6. Mizz MJ, your expression in that first photo is priceless...a sort of "Hurry up and take the damn shot!" combined with "I can shoot lasers out of my eyes..." and "Where's my magnifying glass...I see an ant..."

    Well done, ma'am, on the weight loss - but could you please take back your aliens? I think they're burrowing into my brain, and I really don't need my fifty-acre ass back...I like it better when it's forty-six acres. Now you can't park a bus in its shadow, just a small camper.

    Shade and Sweetwater,
    K (who also smiles at the "Aloha", for what it's worth)

  11. Aloha indeed! Way to go MJ. I'm back on the diet wagon myself - low carb for me and my bitch-arse Polycystic Ovary Body. I had lost 80lbs - had two kids and regained 30 so now - 30 to go! Pfff! (and yes, back ON the carbs put the weight back on). Anyone read this far? $100 for you.

    Boss Of Everything Except Carbs xxoo

  14. Wow she looks great, but I think the aliens invaded my brain. I gained 30 lbs in one month a couple of years ago and it is taking me 30 years to loose 1 pound.

    Wow!
    Thanks everybody, I am going to use your enthusiasm to get the other 20 off! One trick that I learned (and God knows if it's really scientific, but it has been working for me) is that you should eat your major carbs mid-day. Okay, so I have a pasta lunch (or major sandwich for lunch) frequently, but then I have dinner which is basically veg and protein (and, of course, wine, for cholesteral-lowering-purposes only HA). I guess the thing is that you then have a lot of hours to work off the carbs, even if it's only going from the computer to the fridge for another Diet 7-Up or whatever.
    Aloha,
    MJ

  20. TOTALLY thought that was Erik Estrada.

    Twenty years ago.

    Thirty years ago.

    Yeay MJ!

  21. Erik Estrada? Ok. That's my line in the sand...Congrats MJ...and Suzi, I never ever knew MJ had an issue with me...that should speak volumes.
