August 12th (full entry)

Hi Handsome! Hi Beautiful! I have missed you! 

I am starting to see a theme with my postings which is to combine Saturday & Sunday into one post and call it my “Weekend Round-Up.” That phrase is definitely corny but it feels right.

Additionally, I feel very comfortable realizing that this blog has definitely turned into weight loss blogging mixed with general life musings. Hopefully you are ok with that 🙂


It was my cousin’s 18th birthday so my brother and I went down and saw him before he went to his birthday party (laser tag with his friends from 11pm-7am) and then we hung out with our aunt. It was really nice to spend time with my family considering it really doesn’t happen that often which is kind of sad considering we all live within 35 miles of each other.

Food Intake for the Day

  1. 1/2 of a serving of Apple Cinnamon oatmeal: 1.5 points 
  2. Plum = o points 
  3. Turkey sandwich, 1 piece of cheddar cheese, 2 pieces of white bread, small amount of mustard and mayo & water= 14 points (normally I cut down on points by only eating one piece of bread AND making sure it’s wheat but I wanted a plain ol’ white bread sandwich, don’t judge.) I will admit that this is A LOT of points for one sandwich so I wouldn’t recommend doing this everyday.
  4. Banana: 0 points
  5. I had 16 points left for dinner and I’m pretty sure I used them all when my family and I went to the Cheesecake Factory. Side note: The Cheesecake Factory now have their “Skinnylicious Menu” which have low-calorie options for food & alcoholic beverages 🙂
  6. I ordered the Ahi Tuna TarTare which is just avocado and raw tuna and the menu said it was 250 calories. It was filling and amazing and I would eat that stuff every day if I could. I ate 3 bites of bread and 2 avocado rolls with water…lots and lots of water. I am pretty sure that meal added up to 16 points. I might have used a few flex points on this meal but I am not positive.


I spent the night at my brother’s new place on Saturday night and as usual I woke up super early and made him go on a walk with me to Starbucks and then around the area. I got a Chai Tea Latte (Grande with Soy) = 5 points. Before I woke him up though I looked through this book I bought him a few years ago. The book is called “What White People Like” and it is super depressing how much I find myself in it. I created this picture of a few things that represent me with great accuracy.

I was excited to see my brother was already awake by the time I was finished laughing my way through that book so we left the house and went on a walk.

Here are a few pictures from our stroll around town:

I have always wanted to go over to this installment but never made it until today. This is a collection of 202 restored cast-iron street lamps from all over Los Angeles. Pretty rad.

I loved how this tiny Radio Flyer was locked with such a big chain.

Seeing no cars on a normally busy street in Los Angeles was super weird. I felt like we were alone in the world or possibly a remake of the movie “I am Legend”

When we came back to the house my brother showed me this really weird “game” called Clop. It’s basically a unicorn that you try to make walk or run and it is EXTREMELY awkward to do, in addition to being hilarious.

Here is my first attempt at it. RIDICULOUS:

I tried it a few more times when I came home from having lunch with my friends and it was equally embarrassing. You should try it out and tell me how you did.


I went and hung out with my beautiful Graduate school friends Amber, Rosey & Linda for lunch down in Orange County. Amber’s husband Neri and their 2 amazingly perfect children came, in addition to Linda’s beautiful new girlfriend, Lori (they are going to get married. I am calling it right here in my blog.)

Amber & Neri’s four-year-old Jude is my little buddy and I seriously would move mountains for this child. Jude is also a new big brother! Amber is my friend who allowed me to be with her while she gave birth to their second child, Jasper.  So now that introductions are over with I will get to what we ate……

We went to get Mexican Food and I shared a “wet” shrimp burrito (no cheese) with beans and rice with my friend Rosey. I have no clue how many points that thing was but considering I barely ate half of it I can’t imagine it was more than 10-14 points. 

We also took some pictures because that’s what girls do:

Jude has called me Princess Deanna for the past 2 years and refuses to call me anything different. I can’t handle how adorable he is.

My friends are beautiful.


Rosey looks topless hahahaha

Now I am home and I am sitting here blogging. I also ate a peach = 0 points, a serving of Veggie Chips= 4 points and a cookie that I officially regret eating because it was 5 points and it wasn’t even that good. Oh well, you live and learn.

That’s about it for now. I will leave you with this quote I found a few days ago that I find super relevant to my life right now. I enjoy it and maybe you will too 🙂

“In life, it’s rarely about getting a chance; it’s about taking a chance. You’ll never be 100% sure it will work, but you can always be 100% sure doing nothing wont work. Most of the time you just have to go for it! And no matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something. Win-Win.”

Song I blogged to tonight: “Ai Du” by Ali Farka Toure & Ry Cooder 


I forgot to post this

My brother and his new bracelet 🙂

A few people have asked me how my brother responded to me finding a replacement to the bracelet that accidentally got cut off his arm a few days ago. I thought the bracelet was from 5 years ago but my brother informed me that it was actually 8 years ago! I seriously can’t believe I found out.  He was very thankful and really shocked. It made me feel really good that I could do this for him. I love my brother very very much and will do anything for people I care for and love with all my heart.

About FunnyGirlweightloss

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.
