This is the view I will be enjoying from the lanai of a condo in Maui in exactly 38 days.

I would like to lose 8 - 10 lbs. in the intervening 5 1/2 weeks, and towards that end, I am considering signing up for Jenny Craig. I did Jenny before, and I will admit the food is pretty good, the plan is pretty easy to follow, and I did lose weight, some of which I have kept off.

What I HATED was having to sit down with some skinny, tweener, goth chick who was assigned to me as my consultant and answering stupid questions: "so what challenges did you face this week?" Real answer - "making it through the week withoug killing any skinny, tweener, goth chicks?". Answer I likely gave - "ummmm - going out for mexican food with friends?"

All I want is to go in, weigh myself, and get my food . . . if I wanted "support" I'd do Weight Watchers.

Serenity now . . . regardless of my weight when I get on that plane* I will enjoy my week of relaxation - walking, swimming, sunning, reading, snorkelling . . . did I mention eating and drinking?

*wow - have you booked a flight lately? The prices are twice as high as a year ago, and this year I will have to fly out of LAX, rather than the more convenient Orange County airport . . .

Ooooo that sounds like a good vacation. Sun, sand, surf, and sloth. Oh yeah, baby!

Jenny Craig is okay, but I find a vegan diet the most helpful thing in keeping me skinny. Well, that a whole lot of speed.

You can probably avoid the skinny, tweener, goth chicks that way too? Maybe not . . .

I need to book a flight for June and I am terrified to see what its going to cost!

I realized how out of shape I was after my first day of walking in NYC! Its amazing how skinny everyone is there!

maybe the goth part is a way to scare you into action... sounds like a nice vacation, flying is getting higher and also less comfortable--I've debating taking a business trip to SF in June via train--I'd love the time to read and reflect, but I'd have to take personal time for the travel.

And you know darn well the tween didn't use the Jenny diet. She's some naturally thin idiot who memorized a script. So annoying.

But she'll be a distant memory when you're in the land of poi.

I could have used a Hawaii vacation this winter. (But it's a looooong flight from New England.)

Yes, sadly, I have had to fly out of LAX way more often than I have in the previous 14 years living here. I hate it.

What part of Maui will you be in? I love it there.
