five.

The day is almost over, but I had to jump on here and acknowledge what today is. Today is this little blog’s FIFTH birthday.  I never remember and I always think it’s the 13th. I’m a shitty blog runner/ blog mom. I also promised that it wouldn’t turn into a weight loss only deal and, well, look around.  Blogging has…

Part of the issue of me not getting a routine post up is that, as I said in my last post, I fall into a YouTube hole, or I’m catching up on my other stories and since I only have one screen, I could only focus on one thing at a time. My stories usually win out and my adoring…

I’m going to be real with you guys. Part of my absence was because time just got away from me and all of a sudden it’s like 3 weeks and I haven’t put up an update. The other part was that October was not the greatest month on this journey for me. In total, I’ve lost 5.2 pounds for the…

If there’s one thing I have enjoyed during this weight loss journey, it’s comparing the weight I’ve lost to actual things in the real world. Short of piling pounds of fat into a Radio Flyer wagon and pulling it around with me, a la Oprah, this gives me a way to almost make my weight loss tangible. It also puts…

I have some good news and I have some “bad” news. The good news is that I lost another 1.1 lbs this week, which makes my total lost 47.6 lbs. So that’s good. The “bad” news is that I didn’t make it into the next decade. I’m so close that I would bet if I weighed myself tomorrow morning, I’d…

Sorry I missed last week and left you hanging. Did she lose the PMS weight? Was it really PMS? Did she fall off the wagon? WHEN WILL WE FIND OUT??!! Yes/ I assume so/ Nope/Eventually, calm down. Last week I lost all of the PMS weight and then some. I was down 3.6 pounds, so, for the math challenged out…

I’ve been on a makeup buying rager lately. I think it’s a side effect of my weight loss because maybe I’m seeing more results that I actually realize. But, I also have to point a finger at YouTube. Watching beauty videos have been part of my nightly routine for almost 10 years now. Over the years, the faces on my…

Ok, this is going to be a quick update because I’m at work & on my phone, with my boss right next to me and I don’t want to go on the computer because he’s the type to ask questions and if I don’t do this now, I probably won’t later… How’s that for a run on sentence? Anyway, last…

In a small turn of events, I actually planned to not write a post for the week before last. I knew it wasn’t going to be the greatest weigh in and I really didn’t want to over exert myself. This is basically my only hobby and I haven’t done a GD thing this summer, obviously, I need a break. Anyway,…

If I’m being honest, I didn’t realize I missed last week’s update until this afternoon when my legion of fan (hey Libby!) asked for one and I was like wow, this is what Kim Kardashian must feel like. Anyway, my block party* was two weeks ago. *i’m not sure if this is regional and/or if i’ve explained this before, but…
