Summer Lovin'

One of my favorite movies EVER is "Rushmore". Have you seen it?

No matter. Anyway -- there is a great dialogue between two of the main characters that happens to be one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. It goes like this:
Herman Blume: What's the secret, Max?
Max Fischer: The secret?
Herman Blume: Yeah, you seem to have it pretty figured out.
Max Fischer: The secret, I don't know... I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then... do it for the rest of your life. For me, it's going to Rushmore.

So what does all this have to do with my blog and the Retro WW Experiment?

Well. You may have noticed I haven't been posting much lately. In fact, it has been over a month since my last post. And a full two months since I have cooked up any Retro WW dishes.

I have received a few emails, Facebook messages and Tweets asking about the blog and wondering where I have been. A few people actually said they miss my posts. That made me feel really warm & fuzzy inside.

So I felt compelled to check in and let everyone know that all is well. And the posts are not going away. This blog is not going away. I am not going away.

I am just REALLY bad at blogging in the Summer. Seriously.

But here's the thing.

Even though you may not see me here for a few weeks or months, it doesn't mean I have "fallen off the wagon" or given up on Weight Watchers -- Retro or otherwise.

I am a Weight Watchers lifetime member. I am a Weight Watchers leader. I am a Weight Watchers ambassador. I am a Weight Watchers blogger.

I love Weight Watchers, and I plan to do it for the rest of my life.

It's MY Rushmore.

Here's to a wonderful Summer vacation for us all! I probably won't be posting much on the blog, but please do look me up on Twitter or Facebook so we can stay in touch! Otherwise, "I'll See You in September" as they say. In the meantime -- Here's a final thought from Jean Nidetch circa 1966...

See ya around!

Hi, I have been searching for a WW recipe for a while. My Grandma was on WW off and on forever ago. She used to make a WW tuna melt on a corn tortilla that I just loved. It was maybe the late 70's. I would really love to have that recipe if you could find it or tell me where to find it. My email is Thanks! Hope you are having a fun summer!
