Yesterday πŸ™„

It started out good. I went to Walmart to get school supplies for my son and I. His school list is really long and thankfully we have a bunch of the stuff so I only spent $30.

I took Styled to get her hair done and groceries so that was 2 hours. I went to school and got my student ID. It was a 30 minute line and the woman behind me talked on FaceTime THE ENTIRE TIME! And loud too! I finally put on headphones and listened to music while I stood there. That was much better than listening to this woman!

I walked around campus and found that the Starbucks there doesn’t have cold brew. How? I guess they think everyone should drink either hot coffee or high sugar drinks all day. Silly. I did not find the nutrition department. If I don’t hear from them on Monday, I’ll go find them on Tuesday when I have my first Anatomy class. It took me 4 more tries but I got a 100 on the stupid policies test and after opening the next practice test to “review” algebra, I was thinking to myself, “I’m screwed.” This math is going to take a LOT of work but I have to do it. I want to be a nutritionist and work for a weight loss doctor or clinic. That’s my goal.

My mother decided to tell me that she told everyone at her job that I was going back to school and that somebody said I wouldn’t be able to find a job. You think so? Too bad for you! I know that with my story, my surgery, and finally getting to a healthy weight will land me a job where I want. I’ve already talked to 2 clinics that said to come back when I get licensed! Don’t listen to stupid people.

I came home from school to my child being happy and upset. He is upset because his father is coming this morning. He’s happy because he gets to have friends over on Sunday to play. 13 year olds. πŸ™„

I text my cousins wife last night to tell her that I went where she recommended to get bras. Then she starts up on keto stuff since I got her onto it.

Cousin: Nice!! They’ll last for a good while. I keep mine for a couple of years. Good quality!!

No, did not quit Keto but results still VERY slow to none…. I was losing more on WW… But I like the food better on Keto and I’m not hungry all the time and don’t have sugar high and lows… I’m even doing strict Keto – way more than you and still nada…

Who knows…

My thoughts: What the hell??? She doesn’t know what I eat and don’t eat! Way more than me???

My reply: Maybe if you relax a little on it, it might be easier for you and you may lose more? (YEP! I went there! )πŸ˜‚

Come to find out, she’s not eating enough. 1200 calories a day. And she’s not having 20 carbs, more like 10 a day. So her body is in starvation mode. She said she will try it my way and see if it helps.

Cousin: Yeah I want to go to lazy keto but haven’t done the research on how to manage fat and protein and Calories that way vs strict keto… moving more towards counting carbs, no bread, pasta, potatoes etc… but being ok with eating processed foods if needed like packaged shredded cheese, low carb tortillas, Diet Pepsi, deli meat etc…

My thoughts: So I guess I’m LAZY??? Gee thanks cousin! What I’m doing works for me. You have to find what works for you. Don’t listen to other people because they don’t know your body.

For some reason, I didn’t feel that great after my taco dinner and was asleep by 9. I got up at 10 and went to the bathroom and was then out until 4:30 this morning. I’m fine this morning too. BUT I started my monthly so I’m sure that’s why. So today is Saturday and it’s my weigh day. Last week I was at 165 and I had that Twix this week so I didn’t think I would lose anything. BUT…

HOLY COW!!!! No way! How did I drop 5.2 pounds this week??? I’m telling you, the body is a weird thing! After a couple of weeks of barely any loss, BAM!

The reason my ex is coming today is to actually help me. I have a guy that wants to check out the car. Since I don’t know him and he’s this huge guy (I looked up his profile on Facebook), I asked my ex to come with me. My ex is not a huge guy but I would feel better if I wasn’t alone with a stranger. He said he would help so he’s coming here after work this morning, going to nap until 10:30, then we will head out. He knows I cook and that there’s food here too so I’m sure he’s happy to come over.

Y’all have a great Saturday!

  1. Wow – amazing weight loss this week. You’re doing so well!

    Don’t worry about finding cold brew at Starbucks. If they’ve got cold drinks (I think they all do), you can ask for just about anything on ice. I’m usually having an iced Americano when I’m there – just espresso and water poured over ice. You can get regular brewed coffee or espresso shots over ice as well. I’m actually not a fan of cold-brewed coffee. I’m not sure why but the flavour doesn’t seem as good to me. I think it’s a bit smoother and I like my coffee pretty bitter.

    1. Thanks Todd, you’re up early too!
      I wasn’t a fan of the Americano. The only coffee I can stand without sugar is their cold brew. Then again, I rarely drink coffee. I prefer my Stevia β€œsoda”. πŸ˜€

      1. Ah yes. This is actually late for me. I’m often up an hour or two earlier on a work day (we’re an hour later here though). After I passed about 35, my ability to sleep in seems to have disappeared.

        Ah – it seems that what I don’t like about the cold brew is what you like. That makes sense. What a shame they didn’t have it there for you, then. I’m such a caffeine addict I think I would’ve taken whatever I could get πŸ™‚ . Speaking of which, the coffee maker just beeped…

  2. I think it is a great sign that you have already found two people who said “come back” after you graduate. Listen to your instincts. I waited for the bus yesterday to go to the University for when I don’t have a car….it is interesting and a short drive. I am glad I have that alternative but for my other job, I may have to uber it 25 miles away a couple of times. That will be interesting! Enjoy your Sunday.

    1. Eek! Don’t try to ride the bus here unless you are going downtown. It will take you 2-3 hours to get anywhere and you will possibly have to walk a mile to catch the bus and a mile when you finally get off.

      1. Oh, no, I know. This was a bus to the nearby University. We are in the immediate area as it was a back to school week, I did wait a long time returning but upon downloading the app…I had success. I will use the bus an an option but so far, it has been great but they are part of the University system. I know city buses but I haven’t caught a ride with them in a decade!

  3. As much as I wanted to go back to school, I decided against it. I may take some Free Classes online, instead. I just cannot grasp the math to continue.
    Why doesn’t your son want his dad to visit?

  4. Aw why is he sad about his dad coming over? I thought he’d be excited. My brother used to cry for my dad to come pick him up.

    That’s so cute that your mom is telling everyone that you’re going back to school, she’s so proud of you! & yeah, screw that lady, you’ll prove her wrong when you snag a job right away!!

    Your cousin is pretty rude. I don’t even think what you said to her is even close to being mean– she does need to relax. Look at you! You look amazing & are still losing a good amount of weight!

      1. Well, your son is actually really smart if his dad is unreliable. My little brother never started hating my mom or dad for being so neglectful when he totally should have.
