One Year Ago Today.....

I was a scale whore....
These days I'm faithful to just one.....

Yes, a year ago today, I declared it as the day that I officially lost 50 pounds. That was one year ago?
I don't know if I should give myself a round of applause or throw tomatoes at myself. If I am doing the math right--it took me a little less than 4 months (August 10-December 5) to lose 50 pounds last year BUT it took me a year to lose 34 since. Alright, alright. Spare me the explanations and support and rationale. I get it. I'm just saying....

Here's the thing...you would think that as time went on, I'd just get better and better at this lapbanded life thing and this losing weight thing. Which would translate into more weight loss. Yes, I suppose it did. At least I feel that way---on most days except today! I mean--34 pounds is nothing to sneeze at. But, it's not 50. And, I guess if I look at the bright side--I could have just stopped at 50 and still be at 50. Or, if I really wanted to look at it differently--I could say that if I didn't make the decision to get my lapband....I could be 84 pounds heavier (which is entirely possible). I mean--no matter what--it's all good. Right? So, why is it that I'm not feeling the love today?


Chalk it all up to this funk that I am in. Because seriously folks...I am in a funk. I've been in funks before and all it took was a little time to wiggle my way out of it. So, I'm banking on that happening this funk-go-around. Hey....look at Britney (Spears, that is). One year ago, that girl was in a major funk....for all the world to see. And now she's got the whole world celebrating her birthday with her and she's got killer abs and her hair grew back to boot! Not only that--she's got moms like me rushing to get pricey tickets for her world tour. Despite the fact that she did all those things while she was in her grand funk. The world is supporting her, applauding her and giving her millions of dollars to help the cause. Yet....no one is doing the same for poor Amy Winehouse. I mean that girl never even shaved her head....although maybe she should have! I guess life is better for blondes....



Oh well...enough for the woe is me.
It's Friday. I am going to decorate for Christmas, do a little shopping, drink some wine....
Yep, that's what this -84 pound girl is going to do

Ok girlie, you need to go to the state store and get a good bottle of wine. Put on White Christmas and decorate your house while downing bottle of wine. Or really splurge and get a good bottle of champaine.
Guaranteed to get you funk-less.
