BYOC and sheer disgust!

1. If you could be a flower, which one would it be and why?

I would say a hibiscus because they are full of color and life and super tropical looking, which is where I would like to live...somewhere tropical!
2. Which Sex and The City Character do you most relate to?
I guess Charlotte. I think Miranda is mean as hell and she gets on my nerves so it sure isn't her. Samantha sleeps around too much for my taste and Carrie seems like she never really knows what she wants in life. So that leaves Charlotte who is the more, put together of them all. (shrugs)
3. If you had a crystal ball or could know one thing about the future - what would it be?

I would want to know how man children I will have in my lifetime, if any.
4. What's your biggest fear in your weight loss journey?

That I will reach my goal and will not be happy with myself still. I am already starting to do the whole "Yeah I know I have gotten smaller but now I am flabbier" crap. Just replacing one problem with another. That and I am afraid that I will make goal and then bounce back to where I started within a year.
5. Repeat question: Whose blog or comment spoke to you the most this week and why?

Once again, I didn't get to read that many this week as I have been working on finishing blogs from start to finish but I did happen to see the post that Band Groupie posted with her in her new bathing suit. I thought that was brave showing us the parts of her that she hates the most (which honestly didn't look bad at all, IMO!) Way to go BG!
So I have been reading Southern Belle's blog all week trying to finish it (it's a looong one) haha. But so far so good. I am hoping to finish it today so I can start a new one. So I list her for #5 too! I have loved reading her Blog. She posts tons of good pictures!
Now on to my sheer disgust! Ok I have conducted this little experiment this week food wise. So on Tuesday for lunch,  I had a grilled shrimp baked potato with butter, cheese, sauteed mushrooms, and jalapenos. CARBS! I had no carbs at dinner though. In fact I didn't eat much at dinner at all. What happened? You guessed it! When I hopped on the scale the next morning I had gained .6lbs! Ok so then Wednesday I had NO CARBS....except for my oatmeal for breakfast and what happens??? Yup, I weighed the next morning and lost .6lbs!!! So I had bought this Palermo ultra thin crust supreme pizza with an all natural crust and ate like 3 small slices for lunch and then ate the other 3 slices for dinner (this pizza is barely medium sized, btw) and that's all I had all day besides my oatmeal for breakfast and guess what???? Yup, that's right! I weighed this morning and gained back the stupid .6lbs!!! WTF??? So it's proven, on the days I ate a good amount of carbs I gain and days that I don't I lose! That is crap! I love carbs, dang it! It's not fair! Carbs just stick to me! :***( poop what to do?
Ah well, have a super duper weekend everyone!

Oh I almost forgot to mention that I got Zumba in the mail yesterday at work and one of my friends from work and I looked at the basics to learn some of the moves and it looked very interesting. So when I got home I did the basics all the way through (took a whole HOUR!) and it busted my butt!!! I was pouring sweat at the end and was about to pass out. It wore me out so bad that I actually went to bed at like 7:30 last night when I usually stay awake until 11 or 12midnight. How out of shape am I???? Geesh!


  1. Carbs are the devil! where did you find the Zumba DVD?

  2. YAY on the Zumba - good for you!

  3. I found the whole zumba series on ebay.

    thanks Draz!

  4. Keep up the good work Jess! I too am a lover of all Carbs but my band not so much. You might find as you get more fill you can't tolerate them and then the band will make that decision for you and it makes life substantially easier I admit :)


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
