Drinks with Girls

I can't wait to go out tonight!  It's been such a long week; I can't wait to unwind.  My weight is the exact same as yesterday.  I'm devising a plan of attack on the diet situation.  I'll let you know when it's ready to be implemented.  Which will be by tomorrow or Monday.  I'm thinking of some sort of 30 day challenge for myself.  Details to follow. 

How many calories does a concert burn?

Well, I can't answer that for sure but I can tell you that at a Bon Jovi concert I burned more calories in those 2 hours than I have in any one given time in the last 2 years!  WOW!  What a night!  Dancing, jumping, singing, dancing, jumping, rocking, did I say dancing???  LOL

OMG!  I have decided if I could attend at least one concert per week then I would be GREAT on losing weight.  Unfortunately, I don't think my budget would hold up too well!

Oh well!  To live in the moment of Thursday night again!  Bye Bye you demon cupcakes! (Haha!  There I said that word again!)  Your fat can't sit on this ass! 

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Jon Bon Jovi!!!!!!!!!!!

Irish Eyes Are Fat (they look like their smiling, but it's really just a squint)

Well, after that fantastic freakin Irish-American meal last night I still went down 4 oz.  Hey, I'll take it.  I'm happy that I was able to partake in the festivities but I have really been struggling with Weight Watchers this week.  I was out of town due to my Grandpa's death, so being on the road and in a hotel made it a little harder to eat well.  That and I didn't get near enough water.  The water in their town is disgusting and I hate buying bottled water: It's expensive.  Too much plastic being disposed.  It's not as good for us as tap.  So I barely drank anything over those 4 days.  I did drink tea occasionally, but southern sweet tea tastes like sugar with a hint of tea in it.  Bleh! I am highly contemplating combining the dietitian's diet, Mediterranean diet and Weight Watchers all in one.  I need to be a little stricter than just Weight Watcher's (just for a few weeks until I build momentum) then I can just focus on counting points.  This has been a really great maintenance program but the point is to actually lose some freakin weight.  It's not WW's fault, I'm just letting life get in my way.  I've gotta stop, or I'm going to be wearing moo-moos for the rest of my life...

*I actually do not wear moo-moos but I look like a moo moo...

Nothing Gained, Nothing Lost

I managed to actually just maintain my fat weight while traveling over the past few days.  I'm amazed because everything in the South is still fried or has butter added to it.  Apparently they haven't gotten the memo that this shit is bad for you.  And yet, all my freakin cousins are exactly 1/4 the size of me.  Thanks Mom and Dad for exactly all the right genes to truly wonder if I am distantly related to a beluga.  Will be back on track and losing again soon.  As for today I'm eating cornbeef, drinking beer and thanking God that I'm not a Southern Baptist, but an Irish Catholic!  Cheers!

Cupcake 1

I would just like to point out that the word "cupcake" was used so many times that blogger created a user/contributor to our site named Cupcake 1.  How's that for irony?!  Cupcakes, in fact, have been a contributor to the existence of this blog.  It contributes to my ass, jiggly arms and size Fat jeans.  It is appropriate that Cupcake takes its proper place on our Fat Blog.

Facing the music

Ok ladies, here it is: The day of acknowledgment.  You knew it would come and so did I.  After the recent cupcake all out pig gorge fest I have no more cupcakes and I must take a stand!  NO MORE CUPCAKES!  Not only in the physical sense of no more of those luscious, moist sweet piles of cake sitting in the fridge screaming calling my name but also the mental sense of I CAN'T possibly think about them anymore! 

I must purge my thoughts, my body, my soul from those disastrous mounds of deliciousness.  Gawd!  This will be hard!

I took the first step (after polishing off almost a clean dozen of those little suckers in 2 1/2 days flat!) and have myself on nothing but water and healthy food today.  Also, I have purged my closet of the previous wardrobe because while I did gorge and surely gain a few pounds from the before mentioned cupcakes I still have lost weight over all and GAWD I look horrible in my fat clothes! 

Looking back at the videos and pictures taken Saturday night at the hubs bday party my clothes are at least 2 sizes too big and I can't allow myself to look like that OR have the clothes sitting in my closet being used as my comfort zone.  I mean if they are hanging there I don't think I will work as hard to lose the weight as I would knowing they are there "if" more like when I got that big again.  So, I am giving them away.  Hoping that the knowledge that the big clothes are no longer there then I will work harder to stay away from needing them again. 

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh  Today is a new day.  NO CUPCAKES!

No cupcakes here

Well, I haven't had cupcakes, no sir! However, I have had a fourth meal every night between 9 and 12. So I still weigh EXACTLY the same as last Tues. My relationship with food keeps me in a desperate state. I am so frustrated with myself. Here's to trying for a better day (week) tomorrow!

Cupcake update

Ok a small update on the cupcake front here..........

I have demolished two more cupcakes left over from the party Saturday night.  I am down to just one single lonely cupcake in the fridge and oh it's so lonely.  I most likely will have to put it out of it's misery before the night is over.


Cupcakes are happening.........

I am in denial.  I love these cupcakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  OMG they are so goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddddddddddddddd and Elles Belles you do not live close enough to stop me! HAHAHAHHAHA!

Ohhhh, but there is a small voice from somewhere far away reminding me of the calories they have.

Jonsie checking in

Here I am ladies.  Recovering from the big party weekend.  Yikes what a ride!  I will blog more on my own blog later so go check that out after I get that posted.  So many miracles happened it was FANTASTIC!  More than I could EVER imagine!  I am still just coming down from the figurative high. 

I haven't jumped on a scale.  Mainly because I am afraid I will crush it.  Although I must tell you of a shocking moment.  My step daughter who I had not seen in awhile now (she lives in another town) sent me a truly amazing message after the party to say that I looked so good!  Her words: You look 10 years younger! 

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am back on the figurative high again thinking about that one!  She is now my favorite step daughter!  LOL

Then I get a message from my other step daughter today saying how much she enjoyed the party AND staying after the next day to talk with us! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  PLUS she posted a message on facebook making reference to my younger daughters (step to her) referring to them as her LITTLE SISTERS which I have NEVER heard her refer to them in that manner! OMG this party was truly a HUGE experience!  SOOOOOO many bridges were finished being built!

So surely with all this it was ok that I ate 2 cupcakes last night and then I honestly will be eating the other 8 of them by myself in the next day or so because I am the only gluten free person in the house with the girls gone on vacation now.  That will be ok right??????????/  Justifying here.  I know.  BUT SCREW IT!  I NEED denial a little longer!!!!!!!
