LOSING LORI #60 – December 18, 2013

Hey, it’s me, the slacker! How y’all doin’?

First off, sorry for not blogging last week. I had a case of ‘burning the Lori at both ends.’ Wait, that sounds like some sort of coven meeting with me as the sacrifice. Well, in a way it was… I guess? Enough pseudo-blathering; suffice it to say I had a lot of fun (work?) to do.

That week was great for weight loss. I lost 1.8 pounds, and believe it or not, I think the ‘telling my body to let go of the weight’ plan has some creedence (Clearwater Revival). Stress keeps … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #59 – December 3, 2013

Oh hey, gorgeous!

Last week, I didn’t weigh in, nor did I blog and I felt great about it. A listener phoned in and called me a ‘bad girl’ and said I should’ve taken my lumps and been accountable. Hahaha! Despite that sprinkle of pressure, I held strong.

About an hour before I was running on empty.

I hadn’t had a great week. When I say that, don’t imagine me face first in a tower of cheesecakes surrounded by a moat of poutine I had to eat my way through first. I mean that I was on the road for … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #58 – November 20, 2013

Hello you,

Have I ever mentioned that for the majority of my life, I’m surrounded by dudes? I’m the only gal in my house, i.e. one husband, two sons.  I grew up with one brother and no sisters. I am a comedian in a mostly-male industry. I am a radio host in a mostly-male industry. I do a little TV and a some magazine writing, and that’s pretty much on my own. Do I have a comedy bit about tea-bagging? Damn right I do. I mean, except for the physical discomfort (?) of having dangley bits, I often feel like … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #57 – November 13, 2013

Dear pals o’ mine,

On this wacky weight-loss ride, I am regularly reminded of one thing – I know nothing. That could be construed as a negative, but it’s really not. The saying ‘ignorance is bliss’ has a lot of merit really. I figure as long as I can laugh about it, I’ll stay sane.

This week, I focused on an old standby – calorie counting. And I have a very exciting new motivation. We’re going to Mexico in January and I’d like to arrive at the beach with a little less Lori to stuff in my suit of bathing.  … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #56 – November 6, 2013

What’s up, homies?

Weird food week, I’ll tell ya that for free. There were two birthday cakes and hell no, I didn’t have ‘just a sliver.’ Who am I? Giselle Bundchen? Why is it that day-old birthday cake, particularly eaten when you’re alone watching crap TV, tastes better than licking the inside of a chip bag? Pfft, as if anyone would do that.

Best way to follow up multiple cakes – Halloween, obviously. While I did enjoy a handful of fun-sized chocolate bars, I didn’t spiral out of control. Now if we had been giving out chips… well, those adorable … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #55 – October 30, 2013

BOO!!!  No, not ‘boo’ as in a negative response, but ‘boo’ as in I-just-scared-the-Bejesus-out-of-you-didn’t-I? Happy day between my birthday and Halloween, bishes.

I’m feeling pretty smug about how fabulously I snubbed my abusive boyfriend (the scale) this week. Oh, I could hear him lurking there under the bathroom sink with his sneering good looks, cheap beer and tribal tattoos, but I ignored the dink. As far as my week went in terms of eating, I was pretty stellar… well, until two days ago. It was Scary Movie Club and it’s widely-known that large amounts of popcorn should be shoveled in … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #54 – October 23, 2013

Hey pals o’ mine,

In a fit of pseudo-drama, I almost didn’t write this damn blog because all indications are that I’ve gained this week. Then I decided being candid and likely relating to people on the same wagon was important.

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ll know I’ve had my issues with the scale and how it can eff me up. Thankfully, I am positively not alone in this. But like going back to a bad boyfriend, I hopped on it a few times this week. Right off the bat, ‘a few times this week’ … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #53 – October 16, 2013

Well, hello there! Good to see you. You look good in that colour.

Just chillin’ rather than obsessing.

It’s been 2 weeks back on this here wagon, and I’m enjoying the ride. I realized a few days ago that I had made some adjustments to my weight loss efforts compared to how I was early this year. It’s fair to say right now my eating is a lot more ‘real life’ based. I am not currently attempting to entirely banish white flour and sugar from landing in my mouth. I am not getting so wrapped up in the minutea of … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #52 – October 8, 2013


Well hi! It’s so good to see you again. You look even better from this view. What view, you ask? From on this GD wagon, my friend!

After 3 weeks of false starts, I hurled myself back on the weight loss wagon. I honestly do picture a wagon in this scenario. It’s not a Radio Flyer little red wagon. It’s more of a western wagon. The first week, I got a handhold on the wooden floorboards but then when I tried to sling a leg up, it got caught in the wheel spokes and I fell … Continue reading ->

LOSING LORI #51 – October 2, 2013

On an increasingly-slippery slope. I ate everything in Vancouver this past weekend. I’m having a huge struggle right now which in one sense makes me panic, but in another is virtually inevitable with weight issues. At this point, I need to at least maintain rather than gain. New job starts Tuesday. I’m so excited and nervous and am using food to deal with and/or avoid the emotions. AGH. Any words of wisdom to get back on track would be appreciated.
