Traveling with Janice by Janice Taylor
Sometimes you’ve just got to laugh … at yourself!
I’m headed out of town this morning for 2.5 days … woo hoo! I love packing up my little suitcase, rolling it and myself out to the curb and hailing a cab. I’m leaving on a jet plane!
Anyway, I packed last night. And this morning, as I added the last of what I’m taking with me and made a quick sweep through my bag, double-checking the essentials, I really had to laugh at myself.
My suitcase is stuffed with the following:

  • a small little plastic container of artificial sweetener (do NOT lecture me, please, about how it’s not good for me)
  • a big box of melba toast rounds
  • 6 tiny boxes of raisins (1 oz. size … they come in 1.5 oz. size boxes, but I stick to the 1 oz. size)
  • 6 fruit strips (from the organic grocery store)
  • 5 real apples
  • 3 healthy power bars (under 150 calories)

In addition, I made breakfast and packed it in my pocketbook. Two English Muffins with scrambled eggs! One for the airport while waiting to board; one for the plane before landing. Plus an additional apple.

  • 3 books (like I’m going to have time to read 3, but I don’t know what I’ll be in the mood for)
  • travel board games
  • i-POD loaded with self-help CD’s

The last time I traveled, I was so intent on bringing enough food with me and stuff to do at night, so I wouldn’t get into food trouble – no kidding – I forgot my pants. I almost did it again, but caught myself this morning and now, yay!! I have pants and underwear packed, too.
So, on the one hand, I am truly laughing at myself. I am a kooky weight loss artist, for sure! A fundamentalist dieter … an orthodox dieter. Call me what you like. Laugh with me, too. BUT, on the other hand, I permanently removed 50 pounds.
Is it worth the effort? You bet it is!
