Now that 2011 is in full swing, I find myself thinking about goals and aspirations.
The overarching goal of my 40th year was to fit into my skinny jeans. An admittedly vain and shallow goal - but quite an adventure, nonetheless. And one I accomplished in the eleventh hour, I should add.
But there was another goal. One that may have slipped by you if you weren't paying close attention.
This goal is a curious one.... One that I have blogged about before...
And one that I will continue to pursue into the new year and beyond.
Jean Nidetch, the founder of Weight Watchers and author of the 1972 Revised WW Program Cookbook, will turn 88 this year. I'm pretty sure she can still whip up a lean, mean gelatine mold, and I spent all of 2010 practicing this skill. If there were a Jean Nidetch fan club--I'd be the President, Secretary and Treasurer. Truth be told: I consider myself officially primed and ready for any Jean Nidetch encounter that may arise.
So Jean--if you're out there--feel free to shoot me a call, text or Tweet, and let's meet up for a good ol' 1972 WW Cook-Off. I'll bring the Knox. It'd be the cherry on top of my Retro WW Experiment!
Until then, I'll be waiting by the phone and polishing my copper molds.
