Here it is folks, the best blog on the internets!

So here I am, starting yet another blog. Another blog about my fat ass and making it smaller. I think this is the third time now I have done this in the past year. One on MySpace, one on, and now this one. NIIIICE. I obviously have given up on the other two.

But I am committed to this blog. I have to be. See, I'm afraid I'll die young. I'm afraid my jeans won't fit tomorrow. I am afraid my stretch marks will pop right open. And I'm afraid my husband will open his eyes one day and realize I am not well proportioned due to my awesome genes and just have big boobs and a round ass because I'm fat. (Although I freaking love it that he is still attracted to me.)

I'm tired, I'm lazy, I'm out of shape, and I'm MISERABLE. So I have committed to change.

I decided to go a different route this time. I decided to go to Jenny Craig. I called, I made the appointment, and I dusted off the ol' platinum MasterCard because Jesus H, Jenny is an expensive date. This will be my second go-round with her. She won the first battle, but I am determined to win the war. That means no (well, much less) beer this time and I can not reward myself with fast food from 3 different places on the way home from my weigh ins. Yes. I seriously used to do that.

I weighed in at Jenny Craig yesterday at 278.



278 point something, and it is a number I have NEVER seen on the scale before. It scares the shit out of me. I literally kissed it goodbye (then wished I had at least sanitized the display screen first) and started the program today. The food is actually good, filling, and for the most part, satisfying. It is not nearly cheesy enough, and man! Do I want a piece of toast with real butter or what?! I will probably turn into a salad by the end of the month.

I am going to use this space to reflect, probably journal my foods from time to time, post pictures, give weekly weigh in updates, and eventually, when I physically can become more active, keep track of my activity levels.

Wish me luck people, because god knows I need it!

BTW... I have some "Before" pics to post. The lame-o at JC (that is Jenny Craig from this point on now) must have some issues. They are both blurry. Then lame-o me forgot to put them into my Photobucket this morning. I'll be damned if I didn't post a picture of my makeup today, but couldn't remember the important stuff!


  1. Oh sister, I know just where you are coming from! I look in the mirror and wonder "How did this happen?". Obviously, it was one bite at a time. I am an emotional eater and boy, I am just one big emotional rollercoaster!

    Consider me your own personal cheering squad. I want you to succeed...because that will give me hope that I too can succeed.

  2. Thanks TG! You're the bomb! I'll be looking forward to seeing you around.

  3. Congratulations and I need to get serious about my eating habits. Three cheers for you!
