I know I know, It's not Friday... but I'm getting my weigh in's when I can since I'm kinda homeless right now!! lol 

I have to say Thank You... seriously... to all of you. Your comments and messages after my last post REALLY mean a lot to me. This is hard... it sux... But it will get better and life will settle down...and it will be great. I have to give a HUGE shout out to one of my bandy besties Michelle... LOVE YOU GIRL!!! Your words have meant the world to me!!! 
This all just goes to show that you really never know what's going on in someones life by the outside. I promise one day I will talk about this more and describe the hurt I feel but now is not that time. I really have a family here in blogland, even when I'm MIA for a while I know you guys are still thinking about me and just waiting for me to check in.. that means soooo much to me. 

I have to admit... through all this I have let the stress get the best of me... Don't be fooled by my big losses, it really must be because of stress because I'm not eating good right now. It's probably because my band doesn't like this stress and only allows me to eat a few bites at a time before I feel the pressure in my chest. I don't really have a "home" right now so I don't get to eat many home cooked meals which SUCKS because I love to cook. I haven't really had the time/place to exercise either. 

I'm starting to notice a lot of loose skin... I can't wait to start hitting it hard at the gym and try to tone some of this up... 

I'm also looking forward to my next monthly update since I missed the last one... I'm excited to measure again and see what's up in that arena. 

Sorry this seems so scattered but tis' my life right now!!! 

Thank you all again sooooo much it's so awesome to know that you all are there for me even when i'm not here that much. It makes my day to see all your comments... that you haven't forgotten about me!! 

Here is a pic of me today, I had a great day...really..don't know what it was just a great day (I think seeing 189 on the scale helped a smidge lol)


  1. So glad you had a better day. It is the best feeling to reach out for support, and realize it is there. :-) I'm really sorry about the challenge of finding a home - I hope you find the right place soon.

  2. You rock in my book Dandy! Us curvy girls have it soooooooo going on, who knew? Well apparently everyone but us. Love you to death, keep it up!

  3. wow in the 180's that is totally awesome..that would put me in a good mood!

  4. Hugs to you! And, a loss is a loss is a loss, even if it's from stress. :)

  5. Glad you had a great day! You're looking amazing by the way!
