BYOC & My small NSV

BYOC - here we go again! A couple of questions to get to know each other better. Copy and paste into your own blog if you want to play!

1. If you could be a flower, which one would it be and why?
It would have to be my all time favorite flower: a hyacinth. Because they are so pretty and colorful and smell good.

2. Which Sex and The City Character do you most relate to? (Thanks Jenny)

I would have to say Samantha... yea she sleeps around a bit but she is outgoing and funny and knows what she wants and gets it. Oh, and she says what she thinks. I love it when the girls are talking about coloring and Samantha says she wants to color with every crayon in the box. LOL loved it.

3. If you had a crystal ball or could know one thing about the future - what would it be?

I would have to say what would be the outcome of the weight loss. What will I look like when I get to whatever I determine as my goal.

4. What's your biggest fear in your weight loss journey?

That when I get to my not determined goal yet that I won't like how I look and think I looked better bigger.

5. Repeat question: Whose blog or comment spoke to you the most this week and why?

It was Drazil's blog this week. I hear ya girl about the heat. I am about to start running in the morning and then going to the gym after work starting tuesday.

I just figured it out that I have to loose about 5 pounds a week till the river trip to reach my goal. Let me repeat that 5 pounds. I can't believe it. I thought that this would be easier to get the that goal by the river. It is already discouraging me that I feel like I'm not going to be able to make it. I am gonna try my hardest though to do it. I haven't given up the goal yet. Now ask me at the end of next week and see if my story has changed. :) Onto my NSV.So, got my bathing suit in today and tried it on in the bathroom and it fit. It was a lil snug but it fit. I am going to be trying to make that look better too by the river. So, only lost .6 pounds this week I really gotta step up my game.

Until Later TATA.

O.K. don't know if this happens to anyone else when they workout but it does to me. When I do any ab excersises my stomach hurts where my port is located. I keep telling myself well it is stitched into my muscles there so maybe that is the reason it hurts. But, I don't know. It is just a really weird feeling.

Moving on... yesterday I bought a bathing suit top off of the net and it is a smaller size I'm not sure how much smaller than what I am now, but I guess on Friday I will find out. I had to have it though. It is super cute. And, if it doesn't fit then that is going to be my goal to get into it by the river. I will work day and night to get into it by then. That is my extreme goal if it goesn't fit. Here is a picture of it:

Cute huh?? I am hoping it fits. And, I hope if I get to wear it.. I mean when I get to wear it that my tatas don't pop out the top if I bend over or anything that would be a little embarrasing and funny at the same time.
Well saw some pictures off of my friends camera and when we get them off of there and onto my computer hopefully tomorrow then I will put them onto here.

Until later TATA

O.K. Today-True Blood Season 2 release and so excited for it to get to my house. I have to give it to Jess cause she doesn't get HBO so she doesn't get to watch it till I buy it. So I have no one really to talk to about what was going on. And, nineth True Blood Season 3 teaser poster:

Nothing really else is going on except I have done devoured two pieces of Cayla's mom's banana nut bread. However she makes it is the best I have ever had. It is so moist and sccrumptous..... That made me really bad today and I am trying to be good b/c like everyone knows that Memorial Day weekend is coming up and a couple of friends and me are going to the beach, a friend on mine owns a beach house out at Crystal Beach. Hopefully gonna get some sun and relax a little.

Eating wise I have been doing really good. And, have been getting fuller faster.. Fill I think worked out nicely...

Well Until Later TATA

TGIF... and Weigh Day!!!

So, just wanted to thank everyone who sent the hugs. I really needed them. I was really depressed that day about Tank. But, it is time to move on and up.. Just I know now no more dogs. Nope!!!! And if anything happens to my babbies which are my cats no more of them either.

Well, today was weigh day and I got on the scale expecting it to go up for some reason. I just didn't think it would have moved cause I really don't feel any different. But the scale said.... dun dun dun..... 278.6... I couldn't believe my eyes. I don't even remember the last time I was in the 70's. I am so ecstatic.... Can't believe it.

Moving on...a NSV I discovered yesterday. I have this button up shirt that I wear to work and I can't button the button on the sleeve cause my arm is so big. Well yesterday I decided to try it and you know what not only did it button but i had extra room in the sleeve also. So yea for me. Don't have any recent pics at this time but will get some posted soon.

Oh and almost forgot the poster for True Blood this week...

Until Later TATA.

So, today is a sad day. I woke up this morning and Tank is dead. He wasn't looking right last night and acting funny. I am soooo upset I was crying all morning. I think he was poisoned or something. I don't know. I just know that ir really pisses me off...
Moving on, went to the dr. yesterday and got another fill. Now up to 4.8 cc's in my band. That is cool. The only thing that sucks is that again I am on liquids. I absolutely hate them. Yesterday I was trying to talk myself out of getting a fill because I knew I would be on liquids but I didn't I got one. Now hopefully I won't have to get another.
Oh on Saturday we went to this Hibatchi Steak House. It was really neat watching them prepare the food and suprisingly it was extremely good. I even ate some of the rice but not even half of it so I thought that was good. The steak was really great. So have to plan another trip there.

Well that's all for now. Until Later TATA...

Sorry for not posting for awhile. Been a lil busy at work and at home. Helped my brother move last night to a new place and could he own anything heavier. I told him if he planned on moving again buy lighter stuff. His headboard to his bed I know had to weigh over a hundred pounds. That thing prolly busted my hernia again. LOL. Well moving on... So it was weigh day and it is 283.8 So yea!!! Anyways, so this morning Jess came to pick me up cause we ride to work together on Friday and she said as she was pulling out of my driveway that there was a bird that wasn't scarred away by the car. I said yea it has been there all week and doesn't move. I said it prolly laid it's eggs there. Needless to say yep it did. right in the driveway. So, I had to text everyone that would possibly come to the house and say to stay to the other side of the driveway so that no one would run them over. It was so sweet how the momma bird was trying to protect the babies. here is a pic the eggs are to the left of her. They blend in with the rocks really well.

Ok onto a funny story about my Dad who is stubborn and won't take his meds. Well since my mom is off of work and able to watch him. She has been putting the meds into his milk in the morning. It is so funny cause he doesn't even know that he is taking it. He asked my mom yesterday why the milk tasted funny and she said was it bad and he said no it just tasted funny. But he has been drinking it all week and hasn't even noticed. HAHA..And, hopefully it starts working and he starts feeling better. He fell again on Wednesday and we had to help him up. And again on Thursday when I got home he was on the floor and I had to help him back onto the couch. Oh I hope the meds start working fast.

Until Later TATA

OK To Get To The Point....

So, gonna start from the beginning... As a child me and my Dad never really spoke. The only time we did I was in trouble for something. He was really strict. When I was in 7th grade he started having heart problems. I came home from school one day and no one was home. So I made me some dinner and watched tv and it got later and later. My brother came over and told me that Dad was in the hospital and I had to go stay down the road at my friend's house. Well, we got up and got ready for school the next day and got on the bus where my step nephew at the time decided to inform me that. "Did you know that your Dad was pronounced dead 3 times??" Yea there go the water works. When I got to school I ran to the office and called my Mom. She said yea that was true and then got my brother to pick me up and we all went to the hospital. That was really hard seeing my Dad like that. Well ever since then he softened up and we are now really closer. Below, him and my mom.

Well, that's not it. So, we thought that we were out of the woods and on Christmas of that year. Everyone's at the house celebrating and I am on the phone with Jess in my bedroom when my Mom busts in there and tells me that the ambulance is on the way to get my dad because he isn't looking good. Well ofcourse there I am breaking down and Jess trying to comfort me on the other line... In the hospital they had to give him a defibrillator for his heart.

So, we think everything is cool. In February of the following year my grandmother past. I had to be the one to go tell my sister what had happened. When I got to her house she opened the door and I tried to hug her and not to cry but it just started coming out. When I reached to grab her she jumped backwards and pointed at me and yelled don't you say one word. Well that made me cry even more. My sis-n-law at the time told her Bobby passed(that was my grandmother). She hit the floor with saddness and relief because she thought I was coming to tell her our Dad had died. So we were both just devestated.
Well, about every year now something happens to my Dad that is bad. He has a pace maker also. And, it is just aweful. That is what made me want the lap band. All my Dad's health problems because of being overweight and he wasn't even overweight his whole life. However I have been. My brothers are already having to take blood pressure medicine and they are only in their 30's, and they were all skinny practically their whole lives. I don't want to end up like that.

I mean just this weekend my dad was having problems with his ammonia levels. They were really high. If they get too high he could go into a coma. Well, he is so stubborn that he doesn't want to take the meds. They make you have to go to the bathroom alot. Well, because his ammonia levels are so high he gets disoriented and falls alot. On Wednesday he was walking to the dining room and I saw that he was starting to fall so I ran over there and grabbed his hand as he was going down and thank goodness I did or he would have hit his head right on the point of my mother's hutch. It was aweful. I had to call my brother to come over to help me get him up. And, he just hates that we have to help him and him to look so vernerable. Then on Saturday night no one could get him on the phone so I am rushing home and he lied to me and said that he was in the bathroom and that is why he didn't answer anyone's calls. but then my brother called right after that and said that he just left there and he had fallen out of the bed and was on the floor. So, yea I am just grateful that my mother is a nurse and knows all about that kind of stuff. But, it has been a trial and I know that if I don't do something now that that is what could happen to me. That is about all I can write right now. So thanks for reading.

OK this morning got on the scale and I'm gonna start weighing every friday till the river trip. Goal is 50lbs. lost by July 8, 2010. I know I can do this. Well the scale said 285.4. So that is a lose of 8.8 lbs. So, 41.2 to go. Yeah!!!! Moving on last night me and Jess went to chili's and had a drink and dinner it was so much fun.
Just wanted to put that out there. Now for the

BYOC Friday! For any of my new followers this means we answer 5 questions you wouldn't normally blog about – some fun, some serious – in an effort to get to know each other better. You’ll see BYOC blogs all over blogland today so join the party if you wish!

1. Do you have any nicknames? (Thanks for this question Joey)

Maybe like 2. When we were younger it was MIMI and my friends kids call me Aunt MOMO.

2. What was your “last straw”? The incident/situation that made you decide to get a lap band or commit to losing weight via any plan this time?
(This is for anyone on a weight loss journey and is from Heather who will recently be lap-banded.)

It was my dad. I'll have to elaborate more about that in another blog some other time. Really don't feel up to being upset right now.

3. What’s your favorite joke or funny story? (This is from Sandy – she needs some laughter to start the weekend and requested this one.)

Ok funny story I'm not gonna mention names. So I was watching this comedy show it was a guy and he said you have to be careful with your girlfriends if they say that they are going out with a "friend" because FRIEND stands for=FEELING REALLY IRRITATED EMERGENCY NEED D*CK!! LOL. Well that ain't the funny part. So, at are christmas banquet for work we are laughing about the joke and a friend said something about yea you need FRIENDS I said no FRIEND cause if you have FRIENDS then you might get something AJAX won't wash off. Then a friend said hey I used AJAX last night. It was hilarious we were all dying laughing. She wasn't paying attention to the whole conversation. Then she was like I'm not talking to ya'll anymore. LOL

4. If you could be a TV dinner – what flavor would you be?

I would prolly be one of the mexican ones.

5. The question we do every week so everyone can be a little famous without having to do an official blog award….what blog or comment stuck with you or spoke to you the most this week and why?

I am going to be a lil biased and pick Jess. Love ya girlie.

Well, I have been a lil busy here lately so I am posting fast. The sixth True Blood poster. It is a glimpse that we might be seeing some more people like Sam which is always good. Hopefully.:)

Caution: The next part of this blog is a lil gross...

Moving on, so last night had a total scare. My mom made hamburgers for dinner and I went to walmart to get a few things. Isn't it nice when you go for a couple of things there and buy half the store. Yeah. Me too... Anyway, I bought a rotisseri chicken. When i got home I got one of the legs and I was going to have half o the hamburger patty with some tomatoes and onions. I was trying to be good and not have any bread. Well I ate the skin off the chicken then took a bite of the hamburger and oh boy!!!!! I felt it for the first time----I was stuck. It felt like I had a rhino on my chest. Well I didn't even have time to think I ran out the door and started barfing all over the ground off my back porch. Yeah it wasn't a pretty sight and Tank didn't like it either. He was barking at me the whole time I was hurling. Now that part didn't hurt. Then I thought I was finish and walked back inside where my mom and dad were both looking at me crazy. Right when I shut the door I had to sling it open and run out again and hurl some more. I was like thank goodness I wasn't at a resturant or anything. Cause I wouldn't have made it to the bathroom.
And, just to add on that. I don't ever want to feel that again.

Now, about the gym me and Jess joined on Monday. That was fun. We worked out for about 30-40 minutes we did the elliptical machine and the bike. We skipped Tuesday but it is back on today for some more cardio and some weights. Gotta get rid of the giggly arms. :) Weigh day is Friday and I am starting on making my 50lbs lost goal by July 8th. So I am hoping I can do it.

Until Later TATA

So, last night I had a breakdown and binged on some icecream. It was a total struggle too. I opened the freezer saw it in there and kept telling myself to just close the door and go to bed. Well of course that didn't happen and I ate it and cried the whole time that I was eating it. I know bad!!!! But, while I was doing that I was trying to justify it in my head with I was joining the gym today so it was ok. But that didn't comfort me.

Moving on... Went and saw the new A Nightmare On Elm Street. Yeah, was totally not good. I mean if you have never seen the original then it was ok, but if you have see the original than you know that Robert Englund is the only FREDDY!!!! It just wasn't good.

Like I said before Me and Jess are joining the gym today super excited about that. It is right in town too so there is no excuse not to go everyday. We will see how that goes.

Until later TATA
