Why is my Sunday sexy, you ask? Is it because Mikey and I have escaped to some exotic get away? I am at some hot new show that is a must-do-before-you-die kinda thing? Have I turned a corner in my weight loss that I can exercise to my heart’s content while I still lose 3 pounds a week? Did I discover the fountain of youth, and now I can share with you the secret to ageless beauty? Is it because I look hot covered in goo and wearing cruddy old clothes. Nope. 🙂
It’s sexy because Mikey and I have been wrapping up some loose-end projects, well, almost wrapped up, and a fellow blogger Counting ducks said to me he couldn’t understand the “FAT” in The Diary of an Angry Fat Woman. He also complemented my writing, which always makes me feel beyond good. These are two very sexy things.
The opening picture is of our new kitchen backsplash — SEXY! Why is a backsplash sexy? Well, cuz I have waited almost a year to finish this kitchen remodel. I don’t do waiting well. Why did it take so long–that is a VERY LONG, Very nasty-angry story–one I have no intention of writing. I will share a picture of my completed drawers once they are all put together–they are truly amazing! Love them! What? What did you think I meant? I meant the kind of drawers that go in a cabinet–silly, did you think I was gonna take a pic in my (stealing Beths [click the link to check her out] words) unmentionables?!?! Not this girl. You saw me as raw as I’m a getting (at this time–maybe in the future if I look amazing in a swimsuit) in my workout clothes. I’m just sayin’.
Ducky (click the link to check him out) wrote saying that he didn’t understand the fat in my blog. Haha! Thanks, again and again, man, for saying that. That made me smile from ear to ear. No, you have most likely picked the right woman. You have to remember I am technically classified by the BMI scale as OBESE. My BMI makes me more than just overweight by 1.9 points. I have just under 40 pounds left to lose to put me in a healthy weight range. I am not going for skinny, but I don’t know many women that would consider 150 pounds skinny. That is my goal and a LOT of women start working to lose weight when they are at that weight. I am concerned that much smaller and I would look sickly after so many years as a large woman.
The angry fat blog came about because I was so frustrated that I couldn’t figure out how to get the weight off my body. I started it to hold myself accountable … to keep myself moving forward toward an answer. I found one with OptiFast, and the folks at the EatRight Clinic. So … when I started this, Dearest Ducky, I weighed in at 255. I was still down from 263, but I was very frustrated, because I had lost down to 230, then I started a new medication that caused me to gain back what I had worked for 6 months to lose. In only 2 months time I gained it 25 pounds back. My can-do attitude was breaking apart; I wasn’t sure I would ever be able to beat the battle of obesity. I am still in that battle, but, now, I do feel like I am winning. 🙂
SCREEEECH (think record needle being ripped across a record) …….
My back pain is absolutely NOT sexy, but having Mikey to pic me up and stretch out my spine is incredibly sexy, especially since he tells me how beautiful I am while covered in tile glue and massively oversized work clothes. He even tells me this while I am extremely grumpy because of pain. I have had several injuries to my back and neck that can be cripplingly painful at times. Working on projects seems to aggravate my weak points. I hate that because I LOVE to work on crafty stuff. The pain at this moment has escalated until I have retired to the bedroom with aspirins to write and lay with my feet elevated. This isn’t sexy at ALL!
…. It got worse. Now, hours later, I am finially posting. I had to stop doing anything. Dang it all. This is a NEW and different back pain from the other day. As I said, I have fallen and injured my back in THREE places and now I am hurting in TWO of the Three!! UHG! UHG!
Sexy stopped and pain in the … uh … back took over. Niters S
