GUESS WHAT!!!!!!!! 


Now for the bad news…….Mountain Troll still has her job and I am sure she will be aggressively up-selling everyone all throughout the week

Today is my day off and I started it by going on a walk with Tessa (+2 Activity points). Then I drove my Grandma over to Jamba to get us our 16 ounce juices= 4 points on our way down to my brother’s house so that we could take him to the hospital. Today he is having surgery on his hand. I kind of hope that once he recovers he will realize that in the middle of surgery they actually reconstructed his hand to be something out of the Wolverine movie. At the very least I would settle for this: 

This morning as we were driving down to my brother’s I was listening to Kiss Fm with annoying Ryan Seacrest because every morning I try to win the Birthday Giveaway Game. What is the Birthday Giveaway Game? I will tell you:

Every morning at 8:10am they call out a birthday month. If it’s your birthday month you dial into the radio station and pray that someone picks up. You get $102 for having your birthday in the month that they called but if your birthday is on the exact day that they reveal once you are on air with them then you win $10,000.

I have been listening for years and for some reason every time they play this game when I am listening they NEVER EVER EVER EVER call out September. I told my Grandma this and she was like “Well maybe today will be the day they do.” 8:10am happened and they called out September. I dialed in AND IT RANG!!!!!!!…..AND RANG….AND RANGGGGGG….AND RANGGGGGGGG. My heart was BURSTING OUT OF MY CHEST. I really thought “Holy GOD, TODAY IS GOING TO BE THE DAY I WIN!” HAHAHAHHHA. Then all of a sudden the ringing went to a busy signal.

I’m not kidding. I nearly threw my phone out the window. I turned to my Grandma and said “Grandma…..if they call out September 2nd it has been really nice knowing you but I am going to be forced to drive off a cliff with you and Tessa in the car.” OF COURSE I WAS KIDDING but I would have been SERIOUSLY BUMMED if that is what happened.

So the birthday day they were looking for was September 10th so everything was restored in the Universe after I heard the big reveal. THAT WAS STRESSFUL! JEEZ!!!!!!

……………………………………………. (2 hour break) ……………………………………….

I need a new swimsuit and I found this one on the Nordstroms & Bloomingdales website that I really like. So I went over to the Beverly Center while my brother was in surgery to see if they had it.

This was a really big mistake. I have a really strong aversion to “fancy” stores. I just don’t like them. I don’t think I would even like them if I was a billionaire UNLESS I fired everyone that works there and only employed people who were hilarious and personable and didn’t look as if they were judging me and not even trying to hide it.

Apparently swimsuit season is over despite it being hot as balls out and California always being in state of Summer time. I realize that the fashion industry doesn’t give a rat’s ass about what geographical location you are living in but I just think it’s hilarious that it’s 102 degrees outside and they are now rolling out the racks of leather jackets and fuzzy sweaters.

So I guess I will be purchasing that swimsuit online and crossing my fingers that it fits.

…………………………………………(1 hour later) …………………………………………………

I have been attempting to write this post all morning and now it’s 2:30pm. Here is what I have eaten so far:

  1. Jamba Juice 16 ounce Berry Banana Light = 4 points 
  2. Banana = 0 points 
  3. A few pretzel sticks = 1 point
  4. Approx. 8 tiny wittle bite size mini pb cups from Trader Joes= 2 points 
  5. Glass of Mango/Orange Juice= 3 points 
  6. I have 20 points left for the day and it is almost 3pm. I am going to try and push it till dinner because I am in my brother’s area again and I really want to go to The Counter with my Grandma. It’s not everyday that I am near this restaurant and although its not “healthy” I have enough points to go enjoy some sweet potato fries and a slider with a big glass O’ water.

Also, in case you are wondering my brother is out of surgery and he is doing fine. 

Lastly, I saw the following gif last night and it made me laugh. When I went and had lunch with my friends on Sunday we were discussing how The Spice Girls were going to be performing for the closing ceremony of the Olympics. My friend Amber and I were making jokes about how boring Posh Spice is and how we fully expected her to just stand on stage and do next to nothing. Welp, we were right. The caption of this was “Look at Posh Spice really giving it her all.” I laugh at it every time I look

Stay out of the heat everyone!


Song I blogged to today “Start Wearing Purple” by Gogol Bordello    <—-This song is SO WEIRD and I am really excited about it because they are playing at the StopOver Music Festival I will be going to next week. This is one of those songs that you definitely start jumping around and dancing with strangers. Game On.

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.
