About Me

TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

A Weekend Bullet Style

So much to catch up on that I am doing it bullet style (pronounced BULL-A......it just sounds fancy like that).

  • Thursday I spent all day passing out cookie dough.  If I never see another box of cookie dough it won't make me sad.  At the end of Thursday pickup we still had 2 standing  freezers full!  Needless to say,  I spent Friday organizing and hanging around the school so people could pick up their orders.  I even got to deal with irritated people whose orders were not right.  Remind me again why I accepted the PTO president job....oh yeah, because I am CrAzY in the head!

  • This weekend was a bust.  TOM showed up and lovingly gave me massive cramps and put a kink in any fun I wanted to have.  It was gorgeous outside so I did walk though.  Slowly.  So I wouldn't pass out from the waves of cramping.  It is lovely being a woman.  Natures curse. 
  • Yesterday I went to Sam's and loaded up my van with water and snacks for the school to have during testing this week.  20 HUGE cases of water and about 30 boxes of snacks in bulk.  I loaded them (by myself) onto the flatbed in the store, then into my car.  Then out of my car into the school, divided them up and delivered them to each class.  When I was done, I was sweating like a pig.  A day long workout.  I thought the scale would be nice to me this morning.  I was wrong.  I guess TOM didn't want to cooperate.
  • My sister is coming next week for Easter.  She has not seen me since I lost about 40 more pounds. 
  • People are starting to roll their eyes at me and ask if I am still losing weight. The answer is yes, yes I am.  Get over it. 
  • I had 2 people tell me I look younger.  One said I looked like I had a face-lift.  The other said I look 20 years younger (kind of an exaggeration but it is still nice).  Extra weight sure does age people.  I guess when you are tired all the time you just look old.  I always thought the more collagen and fat you have the more it fills in the wrinkles.  I am finding this is not true.  I guess when you have more energy and look healthier you look younger.  It is a nice NSV.
  • Hannah told me I had bingo arms.  You know, like the little old ladies with saggy arm skin when they are waving their arms and yelling BINGO!  Bleck.  Bingo arms.  Bleck again.
  • I have decided that next week on my bandiversary (hard to believe it has been a year) I am going to donate pet food to a local no kill shelter in the amount of weight I have lost.  My take on paying it forward.  Once when Ming was lost someone found her and turned her in to them.  They are a non-profit and need donations very badly.  It is my way to say thanks for bringing my fur baby home.
  • Speaking of bandiversaries mine is next week.  I have been very reflective this week.  It is a lot to take in.  My life has completely changed in a year. 

I gots nussin else folks.  This chicky is kinda tired.  Have a magnificent day.  As I told Hannah this morning as she was exiting my car (she has a HUGE test today).....May The Force Be With You!


  1. Love this! I'm always flabbergasted what people feel ok with expressing about other people's weight. It's ok for them to tell you you're fat [in whatever form that takes] and then when you're still on your journey, it's ok for them to tell you you've lost enough. Um, thanks - my body, my decision! But thanks ever so for weighing in on it...pun intended! Good for you lady - you totally inspire me!

  2. Smokers! You've lost 148lbs in a YEAR?! I'm sooooo impressed! It is EXACTLY what I needed to hear! It can be done! I've been wondering if my loss to date is a fluke and its going to slow waaaay down but seeing your story........Nope, I can do it too! So glad I found your blog!

  3. I think that is a great way to celebrate your one year.
    You have really been a rockstar this year. I am so impressed; I bet I have mentioned that before.

  4. Bingo arms...ha ha ha, never heard that one before. I think I have bingo arms too :)

  5. Bingo Arm Brigade!!!! Bat Wing Beauties!!! Swing 'em proud!!!! We earned 'em!!!!

  6. You are PTA Pres?? OH wow. That changes everything. I now bow to you! I mean I was already impressed but sheesh!! That is major!! I know how much work that involves. And buying, hauling, dividing, delivering the snacks. You rule! We are doing testing this week as well. My 5th grader has been a stress ball as a result. Congrats on the awesome comments regarding the facelift and aging backwards. Woo hoo!! Except for the batwings...your batwings aint got NOTHING on mine!

  7. Your sister is going to be amazed at how great you look! Love that idea for your baniversary!

  8. Bingo arms? What an evil child.

    You go, woman! The scale will be kind to you soon, I just know it.

    Can't believe your bandiversary is coming up - you've been so successful. So stinkin' proud of you!

  9. Please forgive my chuckle at Bingo arms~LOLOL! That's actually kinda cute, even though we don't want 'em....
