Weigh in Wednesday!!

Ok, so I know it's Thursday and I'm a day late, but let's just pretend.

This week has been crazy.  Work is really stressful right now. I discovered last night that my band does not like stress and anger mixed together.  I had a little verbal altercation with one of our salesmen, and I was so mad!!  Well, when I hung up the phone I was almost doubled over from my stomach hurting.  You know the expression "my stomach is in knots"?  I never understood that till last night.

 I have gained 4 pounds.  Let me explain...last Friday we decided to go out for some drinks.  And some drinks turned into LOTS of drinks.  When I weighed on Saturday I was back up SEVEN pounds!!  LMAO!! 

So I've lost 3 of those pounds during the week, and I am not kicking myself.  But I know I have to not do that again (I had a totally awesome time though!)

I haven't posted any pictures for a while, and I have never taken shots of myself to show body shape and stuff, so here we go.

Her's a pic of my scars.  The fill doctor told me I had healed really well, and I agree.  And no one but Casey is ever going to see this in person...

Stretch marks are stylish...if we keep saying that, maybe it will catch on!!

So I just took these and I am in my gym clothes, so excuse my Hot-Mess-Ness.

I SUPER DUPER hate the side view, but I am a work in progress, and soon enough I will be "High School Fine" as we like to say in my office.  Even though I was fat in high school, so I think I'd like to be "Finer than High School Fine"  LOL!
I think I am going to have to have the panniculectomy once I lose my weight.  I already feel like I have a big sagging fold of skin from just the weight I have lost.  I don't even want to think about what it will be like in the future.  But I'm not scared of cosmetic surgery (except for the price tag.)

Casey and I are going on a weekend cruise to the Bahamas at the end of April - the beach I want to go to in Nassau is a mile and a half walk from the ship.  So I am walking 1.5 on the treadmill every day between now and then to prepare.  It's a good goal 'cause at the end I get the beach!!

So - lessons learned this week...
#1 - Though drinking is fun, it is not a good match when you are trying to lose weight!
#2 - Maintain low stress/anger levels = happy band
#3 - Don't look at pictures of yourself in your workout clothes if you ever want to wear them to the gym again (LOL)

Love and kisses from Sunny FL - Good night beautiful ladies!!


  1. Ha! Good lessons. :) In no time, you are going to be glad you have those pictures because you will be amazed when you start comparing them to future ones!!

  2. Yes it is good to take the pictures. I want to see you wearing the same clothes when you lose another 46, that will be cool to see. I took some pictures in a sun-type dress, I think I am going to post them.

  3. Take lots of pics even if you hate to. I am so glad I did. I put my first ones up yesterday and really see the difference now!

  4. Those clothes will never look the same on you because you are shrinking. I hope your week gets better!!!!!!

  5. Hi Melissa Mae!

    I am a new Follower of yours, and I agree with the others, don't fret about how you look in the before photos. Just think about how great you will feel when you are able to post before and after photos side by side!

    A lot of us Bandster's post our before photo with current photos, at about 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, etc, etc, etc. LOL!! Trust me, when you see them side by side, you WILL see a difference and will be very happy!!
