Double-Yew Tee Eff!

Guys, I am not joking when I say this is my first day off in about a month.


I don't want to go into the whole long story of how my job is seriously screwing me over on my paycheck right now (it's not on purpose, but someone is messing up bad), so I've been dishing out overtime to try and make up for the bonus they still owe me. I mean, it's the freakin' holidays, man!

Today, I finally don't have to walk my ass into work, and for that, I'm grateful. In fact, Tuesday was supposed to be my first real day off, and I still managed to find myself at work for a few hours. Ugh!

Okay, okay, I need to calm down.


What's up guys? Long time, no see. I have a feeling the blogging world is slowly slipping from my grasp. I really don't want it to, and I'm going to try my best to keep up with it. All of you are such a big support and inspiration, and I don't know where I'd be without you guys!

As of right now, I'm weighing in at around 232.8, which is still going in the right direction! I've been in the 230's for over a month, and that is aaaallll my fault. My weight would bounce up and down because of the shit I would put in my mouth, but I'm happy to say I'm still managing to go down in the right direction.

I saw on Z's blog that she is starting her own Holiday Weight Loss Challenge, and I think I'm going to join. There's nothing like the chance of winning some money to get your ass into gear, right?

As far as the Band, I did get a fill last Monday. I was noticing that nothing was keeping me full for more than a couple of hours at a time, and the PA added 0.8cc to the band. I believe I'm at 7.5 right now. I kinda lost track, lol. I'll figure it out. But the fill has helped, and as long as I eat my protein, I can stay full for about 4 hours at a time.

I'm also super stoked to announce that I can eat all the Wingstop I want and it's totally part of my diet, lol. In fact, I'm in the mood for some mild wings with lemon pepper on them right now.... Mmm, absolutely no carbs and tons of protein, and delicious?! If it didn't bust my wallet so hard, I'd eat it every day!

I also had my very first NSV a couple of weeks ago! A co-worker came up to me at work and asked me, "Are you losing weight?" I got all giddy inside, especially because she knows nothing of my Band.

I know I said I signed up for the Dirty Girl Mud Run, which is coming up this Saturday. In spite of myself, I've decided not to go. I know that it's not timed and not competitive, but I just really, really don't want to go anymore. I think it's because of the downer the Rock N Roll marathon put on me, but I'm not beating myself up over it. I just want to wait longer before I participate in any of these events again. I will (eventually) start the C25K program, and I'll start letting you guys know how that goes!

I hope to be in 220's soon. It's going to be a lot of work on my part, especially the way my weight has been yo-yo-ing in the 230's. I'd say the 220s were what I weighed when my beau and I first started dating, over two years ago. Once I manage to get past that, it will be territory I haven't touched since high school.

I just wanted to say that I'm proud of everyone and their weight loss accomplishments! Everyone is doing such a great job, and I'm happy that we're all working towards our goal of a happier, healthier lifestyle. I know I'm not around as much as I should be, but I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone on here. You're all my inspiration, and I don't know what I'd do without you guys!


  1. Congrats on the NSV. It is ALWAYS wonderful to hear, "are you losing weight?" I think they may be my four favorite words! I know you'll be in the 220s soon. That will be exciting!!

  2. You are getting there! I am so glad you have a day off finally! And I hear you, better to skip the race and not feel down about it...seriously, it's not a bad thing at all.
