July 12th

This is EXACTLY how I felt today. 

I am sure NO ONE cares about California people complaining about crappy weather considering this is what our winter’s look like:

I googled “Winter in Southern California” and this was the first image that showed up. Accurate.

….but seriously, it was friggin disgusting outside today. It was sticky, humid, super hot, really cloudy and rainy. WTF was that?! In addition, I straightened my hair so you knowwwww what that means, ladies. FUZZY HEAD GROSS HAIR. The weather today did remind me though how much I would love to be 20 pounds lighter that way I could FINALLY (for the first time ever) be that girl who is like “OMG I LOVE HOT WEATHER! BREAK OUT THE SHORT SHORTS EVERYONE! LET’S GO TO THE BEACH.” For the past 28.75 years I have responded like this when people ask me to go to the beach to lay out and take in the rays:

unless of course there is a huge umbrella, a sheet to lay on, cold drinks and another girl there that is equally uncomfortable about being half naked at the beach and wants to look at magazines with me.

Seriously though, it’s time. It’s time for me to embrace my body no matter what I look like and feeling happy about being in a swimsuit. Note to self: Wearing my swimsuit in a dark room under blankets doesn’t count. This idea is WAYYYY more consistent with my personality which is pretty sociable and happy. I really can’t stand how our bodies hold us back from doing the things we want to do. STUPID BODY! Get off of me. So I guess what I’m trying to say is this:

Dear Terrible Weather, 

Thank you for reminding me how much I want to continue on this healthy path and lose more weight. I already feel better about my body and I would really like to feel like I don’t have to always wear cardigans over my tank tops even when it’s a bizillion degrees outside. 

Love, Deanna

P.S. Tomorrow I weigh in at WW so I will let everyone know if I lost anymore weight.

Hey You! Welcome to my blog, I am happy you stopped by and I hope my struggles make you laugh a little bit....wait, what?....Anywho, this is my weight loss blog where I will be 100% honest and real about my struggles in losing some weight and more importantly, keeping it off. Most people that know me say I am funny (hence, the title of this blog) so I guess the twist is the fact that I am going to be completely candid about how much losing weight can be really tough/hard/awful/daunting/boring, yet eventually amazing and totally worthwhile. Hopefully through my vulnerability and candidness, I help inspire others to lose some weight and stay motivated. https://funnygirlweightloss.wordpress.com/

    I’ve been on my current WW journey for 2.5 years now. The best advice I can give you is to learn how to celebrate your weight successes just as much as your celebrate your other lifestyle successes. Because trust me…the days of losing 2 lbs a week will slow down when your body starts to understand WTF you are doing and you need something else to lean on. Be happy that you are taking a step toward a healthier life, be happy that you have changed bad habits and, celebrate being naked and looking but more importantly FEELING SEXY!

    Now time for me to bitch! I know I am not supposed to get caught up in the number because it will drive me insane but that\’s just what I do. So after a long weekend I weigh myself on Sunday night because I\’m just a complete masochist. I\’m 12 lbs up from my last weigh-in (2 weeks before)! Now I know that is not totally accurate because I never weigh myself at night and I had partied all weekend including wine tasting, shitty food etc. But I just wanted to gauge myself. Then Monday comes and I am only up 9, then Tuesday only up 7, then Wednesday up 5 and then Thursday up 2. Obviously I wasn\’t actually losing that weight but apparently my body just has a long ass recovery time! But if you would have spoken to me on Sunday, I was borderline hysterical. And that my friends is why I hate losing weight. Because I have lost 60 lbs and kept it off for a good amount of time and all it takes is a bad weigh-in (or french fry) to almost completely derail me. Sometimes I really sit back and think about how much I punish myself for gaining 2 lbs in 2 weeks but having a really amazing time doing it!

    So I\’ve now written a novel and told you to stick with it and in the same breath told you it is a fucking NIGHTMARE. Everyone has their battle in life, right?
