Hope your Holiday was grand.
My family reunion was fabO! My family was fantastic. I couldn’t not have asked for a more blessed event. So many were able to make it and the weather (which was forecast to be horrible) held out and allowed us a gloriously sunny event and only started to rain as we were wrapping things up. I seriously had a most wonderful time with my family. We are a lively and slightly motly crew of people … smart and wickedly funny … even if I do say so myself. 😉
To add icing to an already yummy cake … I had a serendipitous meeting with some of my mother’s family who I had not seen for about 15 years in person. It was amazing! The reunion was for my father’s 7 sibblings and their offspring–so the other was an unexpected treat.
Notice the food reference?? Well … things kinda went down hill for me in the weight department. This is where the happy post ends … and the Rant and the use of copious ……. dot dot dots begin. Please indluge me in my rant … won’t you??? I promise I will return to my normal happy self …. most likely tomorrow.
My weight loss was not, and I did not cheat. I am in a horribly foul mood as a result. Not that I think I look bad or that I feel like all my efforts are for naught, but I am sick (insert favorite swear word here) and tired of flatlines of any kind. I was BLANKIN’ good. I didn’t CHEAT … I watched people eat YUMMY food. I smelled biscuits cooking–every BLANKIN’ day–while I ate my BLANKIN’ portions faithfully while the scales remained FLAT!
I am NOT in a very good mood. I smelled cheese cakes bake, fudge-caramel-pecan-cheese cake-brownies bake, I smelled my favorite potatoes bake …. and my favorite sweet potato casserole … smelled hams grillin’, chicken grillin’, beef brisket grillin’ ….. and I ate my portioned food as planned. NOT one ounce down … in fact I bounced up!!! Days of flatline and then I bounce up. I am ready to pull the walls down and shout swear words so profane the sailors will blush.
I’m just sayin’ … when a girl suffers this bad … she should be rewarded. I think that is only fair. I want this blasted deal to be OVER already — it will NEVER be over with all this stallin’ goin’ on!
I know, I know … look how far I have come. Sorry … but I am having a tantrum right now, and you will have to wait for the sane Shonnie to return tomorrow. I am BLANKIN’ hungry, and there is no room in my calorie allotment for ANY THING else! I don’t wanna be happy right now. I am Blankin’ Angry.
It’s my blog and I’ll cry if I want to … cry if I want too! You would cry too if it happened too you …. S
