I don't have kids but…does the way she rewards or treats the boys to food a good idea since both she & the husband have weight issues? 

 "Noah is at a sleepover tonight, so I wanted to do something special with just Eli." So they went out to eat.  She didn't post his meal but it's usually some huge plateful.  

I'm not surprised that she rewards the boys with sugary shit. After all, this is a woman who pulls her kids out of school (on separate days, no less) so they can skip school and she can treat them to a 'special' day. One of the boys even told Katie that he didn't want to skip school because he didn't want his teacher to be mad. So Katie e-mailed the teacher to get her 'OK' so that he could skip. WT-LIVING-F. This is infuriating and insulting to any educator out there. angry  sangry

I couldn't agree more. Katie rewarding and treating her kids to large amounts of junk food sets a bad example. I hope her children don't end up with health issues down the road.

Anyone remember when Katie first put ads on her blog? She used Google Adsense and vowed to share the details on how much money she was making. Katie said something along the lines of wanting to share her ad income because nobody else really does. I clearly recall posts where Katie broke down her daily earnings. Those posts have since been removed. I found a couple interesting posts though. The day she found out her Adsense was yanked and a post where a reader basically asks how much Katie is making off her blog. She gives a pretty vague answer. I suppose it would be harder to whine about not having money if your readers know you're pulling in an okay second income.

Katie kinda seems like a sell out now. She used to say she had no interest in Facebook or Twitter and now I think she's on both. I used to really like Katie but something is off about her now. I think she tries to come across humble but I don't see it that way anymore.

I've never understood why bloggers are so vague about how much money they make. A lot of them will say they are going to disclose or write a post about it 'later' and then later never comes. I would respect them more if they wrote something like 'I feel that this is too personal of a question and it is not something I want or am obligated to share with the public. Thank you for understanding.' instead of their bullshit promises to 'disclose' that never transpire. 

She is definitely a sell-out. But more than that, I'll make the same point again. I fear the day that she just can't bear to run one more mile (because she 'dreads' it 90% of the time) or gets an injury and has NO. OTHER. EXERCISE. TO. TURN. TO to maintain her unhealthy eating habits. I don't care if she claims to have a 'love-hate' relationship with running. Anyone who reads her often enough knows she HATES RUNNING and only does it to eat like shit. Nobody can keep up those unhealthy habits for the rest of their life.

Agreed.  If she spent a couple of afternoons a week doing a weight training or cross training or yoga DVD, she'd be less dependent on getting all her *Points* from running.  I run and I don't enjoy it.  I do it because it's the hardest damned exercise I do and the one that is probably giving me the most benefits.  I can understand her feelings.  But there are days when I just say, "Eh, no.  Not today" and that's o.k., because I do other stuff.  And I don't have a blog where I b***h and whine about running every. single. day.

I know nothing about Weight Watchers – however, I understand the appeal is that you can eat fairly normally, you just have to track it.  With that said, I would think she'd strive to eat healthier in general not only for herself, but because of her kids.  Since she and her husband have both had weight problems, it's o.k. to set limits or monitor your kids food intake.  One thing I've noticed that REALLY bugs me:  if someone else is having a treat/dessert, she MUST have one, too.  Um, you're a grown up.  If you're so concerned about eating and weight, be that grown up and pass on the ice cream and cake.

I forgot about that! Couldn't a "special day" be scheduled on a weekend or during vacations?  I really don't understand her or the goofy things she does.  Evidently the husband goes along with it.

I get the feeling that she's the one running the show. Her goofy husband doesn't really seem to have any sort of opinion or influence.

Sorry, but that is stupid bullshit criticism. My mother, who is also an "educator," routinely let me take "mental health days" in elementary school (one year I missed 19 days of classes, just under the legal limit) bc she knew I was smart (I maintained a 4.0 throughout my entire time in school) and she knew that school was really boring and stressful for me (I was teased a lot for being smart and "uncool"). My mom would also take a day off once a year for us to have a "special" day with her. And it was pretty effing special. I'll never forget those special days or my mother prioritizing her kids' health and happiness. So I'm going to WK the shit out of RfC for doing that.

I was an educator as well. While school is important, I think you guys are overestimating what kids do in school- especially elementary. Between all the transitions, recesses, lunch and specials (music, art, gym) there are maybe 2 hours of actual learning. 

If you want to snark, I say find something worth snarking on. dance

Does anyone else get annoyed with her constant complaints about the weather? It was 72 today. SEVENTY-TWO DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. That's several degrees cooler than my gym and much cooler than my house. Seriously, how do you complain about 72 degrees? That's like ideal weather right there.

I understand that they're pretty far north, but even up there, 72 is pretty f**king far from hot or uncomfortable.

Yes.  

The weather, the treadmill, the cats waking her up, her hair, weigh ins, weight watchers meetings, the receptionist at ww, the Mayflies. 

I'm getting tired just thinking about all the things she b***hes about.  

She's a stay at home blogger with kids in school, Jesus thank your lucky stars your husband makes enough so you can dink around the house all day and quit complaining.  (actually this applies to most of the bloggers)
