TTT---- Big Update Edition

Holy balls it's been a while since I did one of these things! Thanks to the ever beautiful, wonderfully sarcastic, glowing and expecting Laura Belle from Beer, Dogs, and Getting Healthier. I have been MIA for a while so I hope this helps you understand why. I think i'm ready to share.

1. Life has been real cray cray. I haven't really had access to a computer a lot because I haven't been staying at home a lot.

2. Home, I say home... but I don't really have a home right now.

3. You have probably connected the dots already but if you haven't.... Me and The Hubs are becoming "Me and The Ex Hubs" There... I said it... I guess that makes it real. I'm not going to bash him... I loved him... A lot... for a long time. Maybe in the future I will go into more detail when things aren't so fresh for everyone involved. I don't want to hurt anyone. I'm the one who decided to do it, however as time goes by things keep coming out that make me realize it was for the best. I think the hardest thing for me is finding out that he hasn't been attracted to me and morbid obesity for many years.

4. I think all the stress finally caught up with me last night.... My mom took me to the E.R. at 2 am. I thought I was having a stroke... no joke... lol I guess it was just a migraine since they said my brain looked perfect (I could have told them I had a perfect brain without a ct scan lol) I actually passed out on the ottoman with the girls... I woke up to The Doots trying to force a childrens chewable tylenol in my mouth saying "mommy, shhh...just take the tylenol, it will make you feel better!" And then there's Shoogs...walking around the house with a GIANT bag of frosted cheerios just munching. They gave me some morphine...which was NOICE! I'm feeling better now but when I bend over or move quickly it still hurts. They did give me some meds though so that works... Sucks I had to miss work though... I HATE missing work!

5.I haven't been weighing myself a lot lately so i'm not sure how i'm doing... eating has also been weird due to my situation...but I think i'm doing ok still. I'm going to weigh in tomorrow but it won't be on my normal scale... oh well, we'll see what happens.

6.I think all this stress has my band SUPER tight. It seems like almost every meal hurts. I know I should go to the Dr. but with all this... and no insurance yet because of my new job i just don't have the funds. I'm going to be better with my choices...try doing shakes and softer foods until this all calms down a bit and hopefully it will loosen up a bit.

7.My meds are kicking in for the night so excuse me if things get a little weird lol its hard for my brain to think right meow!

8. UMMMMMMMMM A big, humongous, ginormus CONGRATS!!!! To Miss Laura Belle, if you've been living under a rock and don't know, she's having a wittle baby!!! So happy for her and can't wait to read all her updates!!!

9.I missed a monthly update with all that's going on but I promise I will have Feb's progress pics and update...cross my heart lol

10.How about we just make 10 some pictures shall we? Nothing crazy... just some pics from the last few weeks... cute kids always make things better :)

My little gymnast! She looks SOOOO big! 
Froyo after a bad day..makes it all better! :)

Weigh In! (Friday...or Sunday...Whatevs!)

Starting weight: 261 lbs
Surgery day: 234.4 lbs

Last weigh in: 195.8 lbs
Todays weight: 193.6 lbs

-2.2 lb loss

-40.8 lb loss since surgery
-67.4 lb loss overall


Ok that weigh in is from Monday... Things have been crazy and I've just now been able to get on a computer. 

Onederland is nice folks...real nice.. not gonna lie! But now my eye is on the prize... only 44 lbs to go to reach my goal...seems like nothing!!! lol

It's still really weird going into a store and walking to the regular sizes instead of the plus sizes. WEEEUUURDD I tell ya. It's even weirder trying on a size large thinking "there's no way this is going to fit" and low and behold the EmEffer fits...perfectly!!! 

It's Uhmayzing... fo reals. Whats not amazing is I think this may develop a shopping addiction!!!! I'm actually getting ready to go clothes shopping right now! Good thing I'm a bargain shopper, that's for sure. The other day I got a sweater, a shirt and a pair of earrings for 14 bucks...couldn't beat that with a stick! 

I promise everyone I will start posting more once things stabilize in my life a little. I will post later about what's going on... just know that my life has changed in EVERY way in the past year. I want to wait to post until I can really sit down and concentrate, I don't want to just blurt it out and have it be all cray cray. Just know that I am OK, really. 

Better go help out with Sunday dinner.... Venison hashbrown casserole, peas and salad...can't frikken wait!!!

Friday Weigh In!!

Starting weight: 261 lbs
Surgery day: 234.4 lbs

Last weigh in: 199.9 lbs
Todays weight: 195.8 lbs

-4.1 lb loss

-38.6 lb loss since surgery
-65.2 lb loss overall


SAY WHAT?!?!?! I am rocking and rolling in onederland people!!!!

Yes, yes, I know it's Sunday evening... But this weigh in was done on Friday morning I PROMISE! And I had a busy weekend, couldn't get to a computer and for some reason can't get blogger to work on my phone. BUT better late than never I guess! 

Last saturday was the holiday party for my new work. I worked up the courage to wear something I have NEVER wore... A tight fitting dress. When I first put it on I was uncomfortable because you brain still thinks I weigh 261 lbs. But I braved it...even snapped a photo! Here is the pic for those of you who isn't my FRAN on the ole FB. 

That is a size LARGE dress from the regular size section!!! I'm soooooo glad I decided to wear it because I got sooooooo many compliments from complete strangers. It was such a boost and confirmation of my weight loss!

I have been really absent for a while and for that I apologize. There are some major changes going on in my life right now. I'm not really ready to share but I promise I will let you all know when the time is right. My life has changed sooooooo much in the last year, in every.single.way.

By you seeing that pic up there then you can see that I now have a phone with a working camera again sooooo... it's back to pic overload!!!! Not yet... I will spare you on this post but just beware... The pic queen is baaackkk!!

I will leave you with 1 more pic.... Sunday dinner tonight was Oh-em-gee delish! My cuz made a stuffed, bacon wrapped chicken breast that was TO DIE FOR!!!! With some Asian green beans and panko crusted crab mac-n-cheese. I can't even describe how delicious it was...

Photo: Seriously the best thing i have ate in a long time....
