Current Weight

288.8 down 5.1 pounds. Woot!

I have to be honest... I don't know how the hell I managed it.  lol I guess just not indulging is so much food fuckery, drinking my water and actually trying to stay on track actually works. Who knew? ;)

It feels really good to have my scale headed in the right direction, again. All the battling and struggling wasn't pleasant but I guess I needed to do it. I am feeling better and encouraged and uplifted. I needed a nice little drop, an affirmation to myself that I am doing the right thing. *whew!* Thank you all for your support and encouragement. <3 I <3 you, all!

It is a pretty day today. Clear and it is supposed to warm up really nicely. The lake trails should be nice and dry, again and you know what that means... Mama can go out and walk the trails, again. The city needs to build covers over all of the trails to keep them nice and dry so that we can walk them, even in the worst of weather. Hell, heat them in the Winter and air condition them in the Summer, too. Now, that is a fantasy made in a sci fi book, yes? :D

I am drinking coffee, then I think I will have brekkie. I am almost out of eggs, so methinks oatmeal is on the menu. Which is fine, I had eggs, yesterday. I have been eating just whites, lately. I normally do one whole egg and two or three whites, (I have normal cholesterol, so the yolks aren't a problem for me) but I can cut the calories by just doing whites. (Duh!!!) I season them with a little salt and pepper, some Tobasco, a pinch of garlic powder, a nice sploodge of yellow mustard (learned that trick from Tammy :D) and soften them with a little splash of fat free half and half. I used to use water, but water just waters out when the eggs cook and that grosses me out, so ff 1/2 &1/2 it is. It works. I do kind of miss the yolk, and I still have one now and again but all egg whites still gives me the protein I need and when I add a little sauteed onion and mushroom and a little light cheese or a wedge of Laughing Cow Light or a T. of light cream cheese, some salsa, it is filling and good and, well... Nom, nom, nom.

It is the first of March. And that means, Spring allergies. My beak is going crazy. My eyes should follow, soon. Bleargh! I am half tempted to try Claritin, this year. I am sooo tired of the symptoms. But Claritin is spendy. I need to see if my Health Fund pays for it. It does pay for certain OTC drugs and so forth. I should also see if it pays for my vitamins, too. Vitamins are expensive, especially when you take a pile of stuff. I don't know why I didn't think of this, before. Dur! Brain dead old battleaxe, I am. :P

Okay. I am hongry, my bed needs to be made and I want a shower, so I am going to release you from the torture of reading this crap, for now.

Later, gators.


  1. I love eggs because there are so many ways to make them delicious and healthy in the mornings!!! My favorite is 1 egg, 2 egg whites, scrambled with salsa. mmmmmmmm :-)

  2. Erika,
    Congrat on the big drop in weight! I am so happy for you. You are doing great. It just takes some patience.

    Thought I would mention that I think Claritin comes in an OTC generic that is fairly inexpensive. My daughter takes it all the time. You can get it at Walgreens or Walmart for less than $10. It is called Loratadine. wish you the best with those allergies. It isn't warm enough for mine to start yet but it wont be long now. Hang in there and enjoy those trails.

  3. Blu, isn't salsa and eggs a match made in heaven?

    Thanks for the head's up, Karen. I'll look for the generic. It should be just as good as the name brand. I hate taking stuff, but I am also so sick of suffering all Spring and Summer long. lol

  4. So following the plan brings joy ? Hmm

  5. YES!! YES YES YES YES!!!!

    I love it when the scale moves and damn, it REALLY MOVED for you! I am just stoked! I wish you could see me leaping about! xoxoxoxooooxoxoxoxoxoxo GP

  6. Oh, man alive! I remember when you broke into the 2's. Now look where you are. Far from that 2 border. Five pounds is fucking GREAT! I'd be dancing so hard I'd lose my mind.

    You're really doing it. I knew it, I knew you'd do it.

    I'm so happy and proud for you, it's as though I did it. Good going, my buddy.

  7. Seriously - this is soooo fun to read. What a freaking HUGE loss. I knew you could do it - I just knew it - not one single doubt here. I love you - you skinny little shit!
