Quickie Before Work


It's July 22nd, 2015 and I wish I was in bed right now. It's back to reality today, BOOO. I've been on vacation since last Wednesday and boy has it been nice! I don't wanna go back to work =(

I'm suppose to weigh in today on my scale but I can't find the darn thing? I vaguely remember throwing it away...........I think??
I guess I will have to buy a new one. I'm going to go by my doctors weight from yesterday which was the same weight I started with back in May, when I first started taking Phentermine - 248lbs. (sigh) So I gained all the weight back from that stinking diet pill. No more diet pills!!!

ok, off to work

Good Things to Come :)

Good afternoon ya'll,

It's been a pretty dramatic day for me. It started with my female exam. As expected, my doctor wasn't happy with my weight gain over the past three years. She asked if I wanted to try a diet pill? I asked "well, what ya got?" She suggested Phentermine I said very kindly 'no thank you' she asked if I wanted try Belviq free for 15 days? I agreed too, But after getting back home and reading reviews  I decided to not take it. I don't need a diet pill - I can do this by myself. The side effects just out weigh the benefits. IMO
She also suggested that I eat 1250 calories a day for weight loss. I said OK but I know that's not realistic for me. 1700 is what MFP gives me and thats what I will start with. I'm getting back on the horse tomorrow with my calories.

But wait, that wasn't the dramatic part of my day!! 

So after seeing the doctor I stopped at a gas station for some gas and a drink and that's when I discovered I didn't have any money, my hubby had my debit card!! I had no money on me and my car was on empty!?!   I decided to try and get in touch with my husband but his phone kept going straight to voice mail. Then our home phone went straight to voice mail. ( I later found out that they were both dead) So I tried to contact him through face book and this time it was my phone that was giving me fits. It kept going to a black screen? WTF?

OMG are you effing kidding me? And did I mention its like 100 degree's here in GA? 

So I turn my phone off and turn it back on and that seemed to do the trick...I got in contact with him and he was there 30 mins later to my rescue.

I tell ya what, I was on the verge of tears before I contacted him. I honestly didn't know what to do? I felt so helpless.. and I don't often feel like that. It's a sucky kind of feeling!

Anyways, I'm ok now...home safe and sound.

Back From the Beach

Good afternoon guys and gals, 

We are back from our little 3 day get away and doing good. We went to the Florida coast to kick back and unwind a bit. It was fun...but damn was it HOT!  I can remember thinking as I lay on the beach, listening to the wind and seagulls that "This is so nice, so peaceful...I wish it wasn't so hot, sigh"  But we had a good time. I was so glad to see my bed though...its always nice to be home.

So, no news on weight loss or workouts except that there seems to be a strong lack of both!! LOL
 I don't know why? I just don't care at the moment to push myself...I'm still on vacation for Christ sake! Actually, I haven't really done a damn thing since I've been off work, except eat, watch TV and sleep. I figure that I only get one vacation from work a year so I might as well sit on my behind and enjoy it!

I have the dreaded 'paper gown appointment' tomorrow. Sigh..ugh. I don't know what's more frightening? The exam or the look on my doctors face when she see's how much weight I've put on, she hasn't seen me in over 3 years :/

Anyways.... I decided to NOT go on MFP unless I want to update my ticker that is featured on my blog. I don't know why I find it almost distracting to go on there? Or maybe it's the thought of having to 'log on and click all those damn buttons' just to log my food?  I decided to go back to writing down my calories and weighing once a week. It's the only thing that has worked in the past.  I'm going to buy a snazzy new book tomorrow to write in ( or to just tote around in my purse to remind myself that I need to write in it)

At least that's what I decided to do today :-P


August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
