Four Kalamata Olives. That’s what I had for dinner a couple of nights ago. I’m not proud of that; I’m just sharing with Team Sybil.
The benefit of having a team for support in a weight loss challenge is that there is someone out there who understands. Ms. Tracy texted me: “Sybil, I am on your team, and last week, I ate a whole jar olives in front of the fridge.” Thank you, Ms. Tracy! On the other hand, others noted the high sodium content of olives, and my friend James texted that the olives were in my martinis. I don’t drink martinis; thank you very much, James. I’m a ‘Zin girl! But not while I’m on the State Farm 50 Million Pound Challenge.
The membership of Team Sybil continues to expand everyday as we are slimming down. Everyone who texts in their email address to 646464 (OHOHOH) to join Team Sybil will be automatically entered in the contest to win a cabin on the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage. Dr. Ian and State Farm will join Tom Tuesday on Tom Joyner’s “Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day” to draw four winners of the cabins. Text, join, lose, win! Just that simple.
What’s not so simple is trying to get as many meals as I should be eating each day. And that’s why I stood in front of my refrigerator the other night just before going to bed, telling myself the olives would fulfill my salt craving, along with the olive oil that provides the good type of cholesterol that I need. And it wasn’t a heavy meal before bedtime. I know, I know — tell yourself what you need to hear.
Here’s what you need to hear: Joining Team Sybil on the State Farm 50 Million Pound Challenge will make us all winners. It’s a win-win! we’re working to get our sexy back, and four lucky winners/losers will set sail with Tom on the largest floating party with a purpose: the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage! The drawing takes place Tuesday, April 7th.
Text Tom your email address at 646464, join Team Sybil, and I may see you at the Martini Bar for a round of olives — for the sake of our hearts!

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
