Weigh In Wednesday [ Insert Menacing Music]

So I have fallen off the wagon and lost site of my mission, again. And by fall of the wagon I mean fell off, stop dropped and rolled then ran to the nearest fast food restaurant. We all know how easy it is to put everyone else before us, cook their dinner, wipe their asses, clean the house and so on. Before you know it- it's 11 at night and there has been no time for you. I wish I could claim those but alas, I have just been lazy. We're moving, again. So it's just easier to to eat out and grab something on the go. And the best on the go food is something yummy, with cheese and wrapped in a warm tortilla. Unfortuneatly, those are so calorie heavy I should just rub the damn taco on my thighs and hips because that is where they will end up. Fucking evil tacos. So good going in but never leave. Ever. 

Also, I will be 4-fuckity-zero in two months, Kittens! Just two months and I swear to all that is freaking holy, pink, sparkly and awesome that I will NOT be in the 200 club on that day. Even if I have to lop an arm off. Serious freak out is happening right now! Right. Now. No more prancing about and celebrating -2 pounds- the crying over +3 pounds- then celebrating -1 pounds. All done with riding the crazy train (well, when it comes to the weight issues...I'm still the Engineer driving  all other things crazy train).

 So my punishment is Weigh In Wednesdays. How fucking fun is this going to be! My hope is that some of you who are in a saddle bag-tummy sag- floppy bird arm wrestle with your weight will follow along and post your journey daily fucking torture to the comments. Who wants to play along? Anyone- come on don't leave me hanging out there like a wet ignored Cat! Or you can just read along and giggle at my nightmare while you eat ice cream (I will secretly hate you if you do that).

So here are the rules:
  • Every Wednesday a new picture of me and my ass- hope you have a wide screen!
  • Every day- on that weeks Wed. post-  I have to post what I ate and let the world see the good, the bad and the 4 bottles of wine and possible package of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that somehow fell into my mouth. While I was sleeping.
  • There is one cheat day- my day varies as Carrie doesn't have a set no kid day- and my cheat day will be spent on the patio of Mexican restaurant with her and  margaritas. And a taco. Maybe some chips. Definitely salsa because that's like drinkable salad.
  • Same for exercise- or lack there of.
  • Every last Wednesday of the month we have a summary and a , dear I say it, line graph. If you starve along with me , I will make a chart for you, too. So we can all hug and cry and then go have a margarita. Or kill something.
Wed. 6/1
218.5 Lbs

What's on the menu today:
  • 2 Slim Fast Cappuccino Delights (which are surprisingly yummy)
  • 1 Fruit 2Day Pomegranate/Blueberry drink thingies (drink carefully- chunks of fruit inside)
  • 1 Odwalla Serious Energy drink

  • A whole bunch of free office coffee w/ soy milk in it
  • Chicken, okra & tomato gumbo & a Shiner Bock

So, who's in? If you don't want to suffer along- please encourage those that do. This is hard shit for sure. Honey Badgers have to prop each other up and clap or call a party foul when we get off course. Balls out, Ladies and Men People! Balls out!

6/2 Food


  1. I know you are going to hate me for this, but I have this fantastic ability to just 'will' the pounds away. So, why do I have a muffin top and a ghetto booty? Because I have to be happy with my life for it to happen, and right now, it's just not I will make you a deal. I will ALSO weigh in on wednesdays and see what happens. RIght now, I weigh 143, BUT I am only 5 feet tall, so that, according to the fantastic BMI calculator, is Obese.

  2. lipo suction on july 7th is my cure.

  3. They say misery loves company so thanks for making me feel welcome. LOL.

    I am in. I spent 3/4 of my life weighing 105 lbs. I am 18 months to the day shy of Fuckity fuck fuck fifty and weigh 159 lbs. I have no idea who that broad is in the mirror, but it sure as fuck isn't me!

    Breakfast: Hardee's sausage biscuit, hash browns and coffee - my usual. They are my tacos.

    Lunch: Garden salad with fat-free dressing and maybe some mango yogurt for dessert.

    Dinner: No idea yet. Maybe some oatmeal with dried cranberries and almonds.

    They you go, Sista! We are in it to thin it!!

  4. BEEP BEEP BEEP Newbie Alert!
    I was kicking myself for falling off the wagon etc. and then I read this post....I know the struggle...I feel the struggle also; I'm turning the 4-fuckity-zero in one year and two months with 40+ pounds to drop.

    I have refused to step on the scale for the last 6 months but I know by my measurements I’m about 170 at 5’7” BUT because I’m all about saving your arm I’m in. I am defiantly here to encourage and be encouraged …not sure about the picture taking though :)

    OK…wasn’t prepared but here it is I promise to the diet Gods I will do better *lightning stikes*

    Breakfast: Steak and Egg Biscuit (500 calories)
    Snack: Apple
    Worked out with Trainer + 15 min elliptical (does that cancel out the bad breakfast?)
    Lunch: Salad (Lettuce, egg, carrots, cheese, turkey, ham) dressing (Target no clue)
    Snack: Banana
    Dinner: No clue..spent all my Grocery $$ on “bad” Memorial day food….

  5. Your starting off at about the same weight I was when I started trying to lose weight back almost 18 months ago.

    I managed to lose over 60lbs and then managed to think that once they came off I could go back to my less then healthy way of eating... agh was I wrong. I gained back 20 lbs in just a few months and I have to kick my ass because I know better.

    So now I am trying to lose it again and find more control to keep it off. :S

    Best of luck ladies!
