Oscars

One Bullet

I have been watching all the movies that won the Oscar for Best Picture. The next on my list was the 1978 winner, The Deer Hunter, directed by Michael Cimino and starring Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, and Meryl Streep. I first watched this movie about 10 years ago.


The Deer Hunter is a dark drama about a group of friends from an Ohio steel town and how the Vietenam War impacts their lives. This film can be difficult to watch because of its unflinching look at the brutality of war.


The other Best Picture nominees that year were Coming Home, Heaven Can Wait, Midnight Express, and An Unmarried Woman. The Deer Hunter also won Oscars for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Walken), Best Director, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound.

Camera-Phone Diet - Wednesday, September 9

Until I reach my goal of losing 15 pounds (which will put me where I was on my wedding day), I'm doing something called the "Camera-Phone Diet," where you photograph everything you eat. Wednesday for dinner, I finished off left-overs from the diner. While I did lose two pounds this week, the net result is still up because of gaining both previous weeks.


Here's what I ate:


Wednesday, September 9 - Breakfast  Wednesday, September 9 - Muscle Milk  Wednesday, September 9 - Lunch  Wednesday, September 9 - Dinner  Wednesday, September 9 - Cider  Wednesday, September 9 - Coffee  Wednesday, September 9 - Mini Pizza  Wednesday, September 9 - Pudding

Camera-Phone Diet - Thursday, September 10

Until I reach my goal of losing 15 pounds (which will put me where I was on my wedding day), I'm doing something called the "Camera-Phone Diet," where you photograph everything you eat.

Here's what I ate:


Thursday, September 10 - Breakfast  Thursday, September 10 - Muscle Milk  Thursday, September 10 - Lunch  Thursday, September 10 - Dinner  Thursday, September 10 - Coffee  Thursday, September 10 - Yogurt  Thursday, September 10 - Popcorn  Thursday, September 10 - Ice Cream
