Weigh In Wednesday And I have a Nemesis and It's Name is Peanut Butter M&M's

Well Helloooooooo everyone.  I have been decidedly absent for the last week from Blog world.  My bad!! 

Good news on the WL front - it seems weight loss has found me again.  I have lost another 2 pounds, so now I am down 44 pounds.  Me likey!!

Casey and I have gone to the drive in movies the last 2 Saturday nights.  I love it!  Casey says the best thing about the drive in is you're in your own space - and if you want to talk or laugh loud or fart, it's ok.  He regretted giving me permission on that last one...LOL!!  Sorry, gross, I know!  But this is where the PB M&M's come in.  Movies = candy and popcorn.  And I have been craving chocolate and peanut butter SOOOOO much.  Well, needless to say this ended badly!!  But I'm not kicking myself, and I am still on track.

I have been crazy busy at work.  My receptionist/customer service person is getting a promotion, so I am interviewing and now will have to spend all my time training.  YUK YUK YUK!!! 

The gym is going well.  I feel like I am never at home anymore - I'm either at work or the gym.  I still need to work on getting my cardio in every day.  My treadmill laughs at me from the corner of my home office!!  I think my main problem is...oh, wait!  I can't tell you that cause it's one of my 7 things.  Here we go:

1. I met Casey online.  Way before e-harmony and all that.  I met his best friend in a chat room on AOL Instant Messenger and then met Casey thru his best friend.  So now you know a successful internet couple.  Our 10 year anniversary is next Wednesday, so I think we are a success!

2. I hate shoes.  This is what I was going to say above.  I think I don't like the gym or the treadmill because it means I have to wear shoes.  LOL.  I am such a weirdo.

3. I have two best friends.  Tara is my OBF (Orlando best friend) and Heather is my BFF from high school.  I don't know what I would do without them.

4. I love to cook.  And I am having the BEST time finding good things to cook now that I have the band.  I made the best "Beijing Chicken Wings" on Sunday.  Let me know if you want the recipe.

5. I am a stickler for customer service.  I grew up working in my parent's store, and I can not stand to get or see someone else receive poor customer service.  I will drop a store in a heartbeat if I don't feel I am treated right.  I mean, it's my money, don't I deserve it??

6. I have no desire to have kids. 

7. I am extremely buoyant.  I don't know if it's excess body fat, but my dad is the same way.  I hope it doesn't go away as I lose weight.  I can tread water for hours, and you never know when this might come in handy.

Thanks to everyone who nominated me for my blogger award.  Love you guys!!
I really want to say again - thanks for all of your support.  You guys have made this "bandster hell" so much easier.  My fill is on Monday.  I am going to see if they will let Casey take pics while she does it so I can post them. 

I hope you are all doing well.

Oh - one more thing.  Did you guys see the thing on HLN about the 4 women who died from complications after Lap-Band surgery?  We were in Red Lobster when it came on and I started crying.  And then I got really mad becasue some supposed "expert" was going on and on about how WLS is not the solution to a weight problem.  I wanted to pucnh him in his face. 


  1. So what movies did you see? I love going to the movies. We have a drive-in too but havent been there in awhile.
    I didn't hear about that report but I really think there is more information out there that is for WLS than opposed.

  2. Dang now I want some M&Ms! I haven't heard the report do you have a link? Also, check out this link for really funny customer service stories.

  3. Seems like alot of people are absent from blogland lately. I wish everyone would "band" (get it? :D) together when some of us are struggling. :( I know I definitely am.

    Anyway, congrats on the 2 lb loss this week, keep up the good work!
