I really am appalled at the press conference that was given by Tiger Woods. It makes me feel like we are back in the day when the villagers all gathered around to watch a public hanging or to throw stones or even worse the guillotine. In my humble opinion, Tiger owes only two apologies, one to his family and one to the companies that pay for him to have a clean image. Why, don’t we just leave the guy alone, I do not think that America needs to know who he sleeps with, and yes this is how I really feel.

On another topic, I will be heading off to Atlanta to speak at the America Diabetes Association Expo on March 27th 2010. I am so very happy to be part of such an important topic which affects so many people. One of the things I will be sharing is how after my bariatric surgery my Type 2 Diabetes was completely resolved. So to all my friends and fans in the Atlanta area or even out of the Atlanta area, be sure to check my website for location. You can also check out for updates. I would love to see you all there. Have a great week, with love Stacey

The two men in my life

In my entire life I have only celebrated Valentine’s Day twice and this year made it the second time. My boyfriend and I did it New York style, which means brunch. I was so impressed when Eddie showed up in a nice suit and carrying a gift in hand. I really appreciated all the thought he put into making this day special for me. I am not used to anyone caring for me in that way. He gave me a gift that was great and so useful to me; it was a pocket camcorder, because he knows how much I want to document my camp experience this summer. In the meantime I’ll take lot of movies of Tushy.

Valentine’s Day used to only mean one thing to me and that was candy on sale the next day. Now today, Valentine’s Day, is no longer about candy, it is about love and learning to accept love in an intimate way and feeling that you are deserving of it. With that I am still a work in progress. Wishing you all love this year, Stacey Ps. What does Valentine’s Day mean to you?

Let it snow

Let it snow… Let it snow… Let it snow… Yes, folks the streets of Manhattan are paved with snow. It’s beautiful for today and I love it. Tomorrow everything in the city will black including my dog Tushy he will be black and that’s the way things are in the city.

This was Tushys first big snowstorm and he loved it. At first he looked at me like “Mommy, what is this?”, and then he took off in a blanket of whiteness.

It’s hard to believe, that in four and a half months we will be in camp and it will be hot and I will be hopefully be in a pool doing all the aerobic exercises that I cannot do on the land due to my knee. I got at least three calls yesterday, from people who lived in the suburbs telling me to stock up on food and supplies cause there is a blizzard coming. I do not think people in the suburbs understand that in the city all we have to do is walk to the corner and we can have everything. New Yorkers never panic over snow we are a tough bunch. Stay warm everyone, with love Stacey

george from seinfeld is on a diet

I laughed my head off, when I saw that Jason Alexander was going to be the new Jenny Craig spokesman. I saw the commercial for the very first time last night, he asks Valerie Bertinelli to help him lose 30 lbs.

Imagine George Costanza on Jenny Craig! It would have made for a few very funny Seinfeld episodes. He should have called Tommy Lasorda and got some advice, after all he was the slim fast man for awhile. It’s fun to think of who will make the next spokesperson after George, I don't think Lou Grant would be interested! lol

Tough Decisions

Decisions... Decisions... Decisions. I have been given a wonderful opportunity, a very reputable weight loss camp has asked me if I would come this summer and help motivate the kids and at the same time help me meet my weight loss goals.

Of course, I won't go into the weight part portion, as I promised you to stay off that topic for one month and this is week number two. The owner of the camp saw me speaking at one of my engagements and came up to me and said "Did you go to weight watchers camp in Pennsylvania when you were a kid?" I said "Yes when I was 13." He said "I was your waiter!" My mouth hung open. "Are you kidding me?" I said. How did you recognize me after all these years? For some reason he did and now he wants me to be part of his camp experience.

The first thing I asked was can my dog come and he said yes. What a thrill to be given a chance to be part of a child's life that is in this weight war. It would be for six weeks in North Carolina. I thought, wow this could be a chance to get off those extra pounds that bother me so much and to have a real effect on a child's life. I wish when I went to camp, I had a woman like me to talk to. Trust me I have a lot I could share with them. For some reason I have not said a full yes as of yet. I am a bit hesitant and I cannot figure out why. I am going to take the rest of the weekend to think about it and I'll let you know.

By the way if you want to hear a fabulous story about a women who beat the odds with her weight go to , you will be amazed at this story and they will continue updates following her amazing life through this battle. Well I have some decisions to make and will keep you updated. Let me know what you think of Dana's story.

With love,
