Pipe down... I haven't forgotten...

What's been going on? I wish I had more to report... The Golden Globes were last night & The Bachelor is on tonight so I. AM. BUSY. Okay, not that busy and I do have Tivo so what's my excuse? I've not been doling out the Blogger Love lately and for that, I apologize. Believe it or not, there are times I don't have much to say. Unless you're the @ss wipe who I passed the other day when I was running errands. I was in the turn lane (so I was OBVIOUSLY turning, left) and he was going straight. He pulled up beside my car, slowly, and motioned for me to roll my window down. I did & he said "your turn signal isn't working" and since I was caught off guard I said "oh... thanks..." as I was driving away. Then I realized he was chastising me for not having my turn signal on & I went from being appreciative to wanting to hunt him down and ram the side of his "rig" with my Toyota mini van. I crack myself up, driving a mini van. I was jamming out to "Rage Against the Machine" the other day while Corbin was sitting in his car seat, shaking his booty. When I was 20 & doing some serious dancing in the clubs I would have never imagined THAT moment. I was too cool, back then. Now I'm too cool, in my mini van.

I DIGRESS. Weight loss... weight loss... Okay~ I'm back. Things are going well! I have still been working out with Nikki & I think I'll post some new "Before Nikki/Today" pics by the end of this month to see how my shape is changing. I ran across a paper the other day that was dated 12/5/08 and my weight was 195. Today it's 194. I'm really sick of the 190's and am so ready to move on. I've even started running on the treadmill a little because I've heard that running WILL get the weight off. What will the 180's feel like? And then the 170's? Will I be able to stand myself? Will the people around me be able to take it?? (Internet, you have no idea how obnoxious I am.)




TOMORROW is weigh in day. I'll be back to let you all know the latest number. Until then, here's a photo tip:

Always make sure that anyone who takes your picture is standing well ABOVE you. The angle gives you a lovely jaw line.
(Eric is so well trained, he stands on a chair for me. I'm a lucky gal.)

I wait in anticipation for tomorrow's numbers, 193, 192, I don't know, the anticipation is killing me....
Anyway, I know what your talking about. Last year I was on the bypass and I had to slow down because a deer was in the road. A couple of guys in the car next to me started flipping me off and telling me I was crazy for slowing down on the bypass. Apparently, they didn't see the deer. I haven't felt that mad in years! I pulled up next to them for the next 100 yards gesturing for them to roll down their window so I could tell them what I thought of their gestures. Apparently I was somewhat scarey in my mini-van and they wouldn't do it. What a bunch of pansies!

Oh my GOSH Molly, that made me laugh. Eric even said "that's a new image of Molly, for me- chasing down some guys in a mini van." LOL! Let me tell you (and since you know me in REAL life, I'm sure you can picture this) I will follow any little smart driver into a parking lot in a hot minute & school them about driving etiquette. Which is why I will end up getting shot by some lunatic one day. Something about being a mama in a mini van can make you very empowered AND cranky. Bad combination.

I would give anything to be in the 190's if that makes you feel any better. I'm going down slowly, but all I'm eating is shrimp, hummus, and veggies. (I guess I can't complain!) You are, however, very lovely at 190ish, and I will have to be far below that weight to get lovely!

I need to train my husband on that!!!

Amy, do you take your measurements? Although you're only one pound lower than you were a month ago I bet your measurements have changed.

I want to invent a blinking electronic sign for my car that I can have many phrases to choose from. I want to be able to REALLY tell the other drivers what I think of their driving ability and rude driving etiquette. Since the sign doesn't exist I still let them know but only the unfortunate people in my own car get to hear it.

KiKi~ I HAVE done measurements! As a matter of fact, when Nikki started working with me she did a LOT of measurements, more then I had ever done. (like calves, forearms) So when I post NEW body pics the end of this month I'll include those measurements. Unless I'm bigger and mushy-er... then I'll pretend this conversation never happened... : )

Miss K said...

Amy!! I can't wait to see how you've changed. Man, those not losing pounds is really discouraging. I'm right there with ya!! I'm stuck right now! grrrr.

Ok, ok, you twisted my arm. Not only are we on a weight loss quest (I hate you, you weigh 4 lbs. less than me) but, you are right, we could be BFF. Thanks for finding me!
