An award and some rambling

So this week has been boring, food-wise (save for my little Thanksgiving feast on Friday), so the blog has been a little neglected.  That’s why I pumped her up with a new theme and domain name!     The old Blogspot RSS feed should still work since the blog still lives there for now.

I’m headed in for my 1-week checkup tomorrow to go over my lab results and get weighed (I’ve been weighing at home, and those are the numbers on my little tracker to the right; the scale at the office weighed me 5lbs heavier, so I’m sticking with the one here!).  I’m also FRIGGIN’ STOKED to bump myself up to the next tier of plans, which means I’ll get to eat REAL FOOD!!  FOR THANKSGIVING!!!  WITH MY TEETH!!!!  These shakes taste alright, better than they did before, but this week has been pretty depressing.  I dunno if it’s good or bad that it’s a mark of how uneventful my week has been based on my lack of food.  All’s I know is, I’m ready to cook and try out new recipes!

After my appointment tomorrow, I’m planning on going by the library to see if they have any low-carb cookbooks since that’s kinda what this plan is.  That’s such a fad, short-term diet, I don’t see the sense in dropping money on a book of my own.  Then after that, I’m going dress-shopping with Catherine and another bridesmaid!  I keep arguing with Catherine that they probably won’t have many sample dresses in sizes that will fit me, but I hope I’m wrong.  Even though I won’t feel pretty or want to be looked at in a strapless dress, it sucks even worse to feel left out and have to watch everyone else get to play dress-up without me.

Tonight, Mom and I helped prep some bags of fruit for a local community outreach center’s Thanksgiving meal.  I need to do stuff like this more often, but I’m such a chicken when it comes to that kind of thing.  If I had someone to go with me, I’d be more likely to volunteer my time.  That sounds terrible, and I just need to get my ass out there and stop being such a baby.

Wow, this has turned into more of a journal post than a blog post…

Oooh, some of my clothes are already fitting differently, and yesterday I traipsed around the house in a minidress that used to be too small on me and now it’s too big.  I’ve graduated from my ginormous pair of PJ pants to some that were always too snug for comfortable lounging (though I just checked and they’re the same size…Old Navy is the LEAST consistent with sizes!!).  And tonight when we were at the church listening to instructions, I put my hand on the small of my back and gasped a little.  “Mom!!  Look at my butt!!” I showed my mom how my fingers didn’t follow the giant jutting-out angle my ass used to occupy.  It’s a gentler slope now.     My tummy pooch seems smaller, too! 

I’ve taken a whole slew of “before” pictures – most which will not see the cold, cruel light of Teh Interwebs, and I can’t wait to compare them with some “afters.”  Which reminds me, none of them are really SFW.  I should take some more before I lose too much so I can have something to show the blogosphere.

Love y’all!!


  1. So a couple of you asked, " what am I supposed to do with it?"

    If you want to pass it along, just copy and paste all that into a post and pick 5 other people. If you want to put the little badge on your blog, [this works for Blogger, not sure about WP] right-click-save the little image and then go to the place where you edit your layout, click "add element" or something like that, and there's an option to add a picture from your computer. You can also go to that post [ ] and add your name/website to the list of people who've received the "award." This isn't a big deal, just a fun "pass it along" thing. :)
