Ok I seriously believe I eat more when I read a Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum series) Book!

I find myself getting chips,pizza,cheese puff cheetos etc. I think Stephanie Plum is a bad influence because she doesn't gain any weight from her tasty cakes or cluck in a bucket drive thru's BUT I DO!!! lol

So I Blame Stephanie Plum! I think she is making me fat!! lol

So Does anyone else find themselves wanting certain junk foods when reading these books!!

I can't say that reading Plum is making me gain weight.  I think it is sitting here w/laptop AND too much reading that is doing it.  I'll think of you when I get back to the Plum series, though!  You've probably planted a seed in my brain to start salivating when she mentions eating at her mother's, or her junk food.  :D

Oh, koolmnvb, I have to tell you that I love your little doggie's face.  We were grooming our lhasa yesterday and I wanted to do her face like your little one, but I ended up taking too much off, so it isn't quite as cute as yours.

Just finished reading #13. It's those Tastykakes that do it. Fortunately, I know that Tastykakes are not nearly as good as they were 40 years ago, so I can resist.

Just think of Lula. Steph and Lula eat together, and Lula is a "full-figured woman." ;D

Here's my pick for Lula if they ever make a movie. Mo'nique. Think of this when you want a Cluck-in-a-Bucket.

Good one Gertie!  Mo'nique is definitely who I picture when Lula is in the scene!  As to the weight gain - at least we burn a few more calories laughing out loud through the Plum series!

Absolutely!!  I always want to eat when/what Stephanie and Lula do!!  Grandma Mazur even makes the cookies at the funeral home sound wonderful!  :D    And Mo'nique is so Lula!!!!!!

I used to be able to eat the way she does but now I gain weight just reading about it lol.  I always start to crave fried chicken and donuts when I read Stephanie Plum and wish for the days I could eat anything!!

Me, too. The auto-weight gain hit me at about age 36. Now my chicken is boneless, skinless and definitely not fried. I have a donut the day after I get my cholesterol results, and that's only if the results are good. The only cookies I eat are the Hollywood Diet Smart Cookies. Definitely not the macadamia nut white chocolate chip cookies at Stiva's. Then again, I don't have to go to a funeral to get them. :D

LOL, I that's why I stopped eating chicken. Just not the same. My biggest downfall now is peanut butter cookies. It used to be chocolate, donuts, and pasta but I've been diagnosed with bad dairy and chicken egg allergy that I had to give up a ton of favorit foods. You'd think that would help reduce my caloric intake. Nope not one bit. Learned how to make peanut butter cookies with soy and duck eggs and did you know that Oreo cookies are dairy free :eek:!!!! Haven't been able to find a donut I can eat so I break down every now and then expecailly when reading Stephanie eating donuts or tasty cakes.

Okay, I can totally relate to the age/weight gain correlation and it's cholesterol lowering time for me too.  I used to eat 4 pieces of pizza.... now I have one... and it's "healthier pizza" like Papa Murphy's vegetarian instead of the Meat Lovers Super Special Deluxe Supreme with extra cheese.
    But, being a midwest gal....  I need someone to explain tasty cakes to me.... I have always wondered what they are while reading our Miss Stephanie.

Thank you so much! I love him and his little face! We have went to the same groomers for the past 4 years with him and they always cut his face the same exact way, thanks for your comps and I'd love to see a pic of your lhasa!

I have never read Miss Stephanie and now I don't think I will if she encourages weight gain - LOL! But I do know what Tasteycakes are. They are a lot like Hostess Snack cakes only it seems like there were more varieties and I liked them better. I haven't lived near Tastycakes in over 20 years so they may not be as good now, but YUM 20 years ago.

I think tasty cakes are still pretty good! I don't get them very often because of where I live but when I do they always taste pretty YUM to me!

Also I definitely think you should read this series it is so good and funny, but it makes you practice ALOT of self control! lol

I'm so glad we're not the only crazy ones!  A group of us (hmm, like 14 or so) did a girls night out a couple years ago, shortly after one of the new Evanovich books was released.  We spent pretty much the entire evening "casting" a movie based on her books.  I can't even remember who all we ended up with, but we had a great time - and Mo'nique is a perfect choice!

Lulu = Monique
Stephanie = Sandra Bullock

It has been so long since I have read the Plum series... I picture Tim Curry from "Rocky Horror Picture Show" as that bus driving cross dresser... can't remember his name.. rofl!

Luckily for me, Tastykakes aren't available in my area, so there isn't too much temptation for me! (I really want to try them sometime, though!)

I always pictured Sherri Shepherd as Lula ...
