I’m a loser.

In an active sense, anyway.  I lose things ALL THE TIME!  I’m the most disorganized person in the entire world.  In fact, I probably owe lots of people lots of books, but I either lost the emails/fb messages/etc.  So if you’re waiting on a shipment that you haven’t received from me, chances are I lost it.  Just email me a reminder to colleenhoover@live.com with the subject line: Hey dumbass!

Speaking of losing things, I lost my wedding ring about four years ago.  I hated that I lost it, because I had fashioned it out of my grandmother’s wedding ring and it meant a lot to me.  Not long after I lost it, I accidentally sucked my husband’s wedding ring up in the car wash vacuum.  He wasn’t that sad, though…he hates jewelry.

So I went to our local Diamonds & Designs and sat down with the jeweler, who was just the nicest man.  I told him I wanted a floating diamond and I somehow walked out of there having ordered THREE floating diamonds.  One for each kid.  Just got the ring back today and here it is!

I’m going to try not to lose this one.  It’s taking some getting used to since I never wear jewelry.  Thank you, husband.

And since we’re on the subject of losing, me and husband started Weight Watchers today.  My goal is to lose 25 pounds by Chicago, which is only 24 days away.  I don’t know if it’s possible, but I’m gonna try.  😀  Husband will probably lose 25 pounds by tomorrow morning.  Men suck!

  1. Good luck with the ring… And the wright loss! Want a piece of free advice? (whether or not you want it, you have probably already guessed that I’m offering it anyway) : download a calorie counter such as the one from fat secret or my fitness pal. If you can stick to (or below) the calorie allowances they recommend, I’m willing to bet you won’t be disappointed. I lost almost 30 pounds in about 6 weeks with the help of the good Lord and those programs.

  2. If by loser you mean author of the best books I’ve ever read? You’re right… TOTAL loser. I hope I can be as big of a loser as you one day 🙂

  3. Well, I just finished your book, “Slammed” last night and it was fabulous!! It was the quickest I’ve read a book in years, having 2 kids and working this past weekend!! I can’t wait to read more of your books, knowing that I picked it up on a whim by reading some great reviews on Amazon. Stay true to self, and don’t try to write to please others. I am already recommending you to my friends: )

  4. Love the ring!!

    P.S. Men do suck! I had a baby 11 weeks ago… I have 7lbs to go, and my husband doesn’t need to lose weight (he needs to gain muscle!!), but he some how lost the 7lbs I am trying to lose!!!
