August 28th

I am going to start with food and exercise stuff to get it out-of-the-way and then I will write about my adventure at the DMV this morning.

Food News 

  1.  I received my free drink voucher in the mail from Starbucks for my birthday so I redeemed it for a non-fat Chai Latte. I think this was about 5 points. Not sure.
  2. I was already hungry and on my way to the DMV so against my better judgement I got a piece of “Very berry coffee cake.” I only ate half and kept the other half for my Grandma who loves leftovers = 5 points <—— SERIOUSLY?!?! If I ate the entire piece that would have been 10 points?! EW! 
  3. I also bought a cranberry almond bar for the road. I ended up eating half of that too and giving the other half to Grandma. She has been super stoked about all this leftover food, let me tell you! = 3 points 
  4. Blueberries = 0 points 
  5. I have 17 points left which is kind of a lot for 3pm in the afternoon but I am meeting my friend, Sondi for dinner and I don’t want to have to eat only veggies and chicken breast. Also, she texted me and said…and I quote….”F*** your diet, we are going to eat food and go to the Sugar Factory afterwards.” HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH

Exercise 

  1. After the DMV I went to the mall to return a dress. I was 30 minutes early before the stores opened so I walked around the mall like all the older adults and new moms or pregnant ladies = +1 Activity Points 

    Accurate

2.) I came home and ran around the house for about an hour bending, moving, cleaning, picking up things, dancing with myself, etc. etc. which earns me Activity Points as well. SCORE. I earned = +2 points for this. 

Speaking of the mall……

I took pictures of a problem I have encountered my entire life and I am more than positive there are a few women out there that feel my pain. Here it is…..my boobs are too big compared to my stomach area <—I did not explain that correctly hahaha.

Yah, Yah……I know if you are a straight man reading this you are probably saying “And the problem is????” …….IT IS A PROBLEM. Here’s why: If my stomach area is a medium and my boobs need a large shirt then I am stuck in this awkward situation of either smashing my boobs into a shirt that is too small OR I have to buy a shirt that is huge and sloppy around my stomach to accommodate my boobs. It is probably one of the most annoying things about having a large chest. I found a dress that was 100% my style and I went and tried it on praying to the Heaven’s Above that it would fit. Well lookey here….it did not.

This was to simply show off the dress. I absolutely loved it :/ Side note: It is not zipped up all the way.

How shocking…it only zips up until a certain point. Cool story, zipper.

And now I am showing you what it would do if I actually did zip it up. It would smash my boobs down so bad that it would look like I was in a suit of armor gearing up to go into battle.

Ok seriously, this is bullcrap. I really wanted this dress 😦

The DMV story 

I packed more stuff for this DMV trip then I do when I go on long flights to far away lands. A short rundown of what I brought:

  • Ipad
  • Macbook
  • Noise canceling headphones
  • Phone
  • Bag of papers to organize
  • Snacks
  • Water
  • …………I am ridiculous

I was completely prepared to spend my entire day in there so of course I was pleasantly surprised when it only took 45 minutes to complete everything! I had to get a new driver’s license picture taken so I also went to the appointment looking semi-decent so I didn’t traumatize myself like the first time I took my driver’s license picture when I was 16. 

STORY TIME!!!!!

The first time I took my driver’s license picture I was not prepared at all. I had no make-up on, my hair was pulled back and I’m pretty sure I was in a sweater. They took the picture, it came in the mail and to my horror I looked like a disgruntled 40-year-old cafeteria worker. It also looked like I had a cock-eye. No joke. I have NO IDEA WHY I never went and retook the picture but I didn’t. I had that license for about 6 years until I had to retake it again in 2002 ish. That picture WAS SO BAD that I had people laugh at me, say to me “THIS ISN’T YOU!!!!”, question me about the information on the ID to confirm that it was actually me…..I even had a guy tell me one time “You look terrible in this picture. Please go take another one asap.”

So when I was 22 I got dressed up, went tanning, did my makeup and hair and went and took the picture. Here it is:

I was in a constant state of “tan skin” during this time of my life. Thank you 22-year old self for creating sun/age spots. Was it worth it? No, it wasn’t.

And now I will continue with how this stupid driver’s license story has a twist. When I was 22 and received my new license with a presentable picture I was super stoked. I didn’t realize though that every time I went out in public wearing no makeup and looking like a troll people were going to see this ID picture, look up at me and probably think to themselves, “Holy Sh*t, this girl has really let herself go.” HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAH.

I CANNOT WIN. 

So for the past 6-7 years I have had people do the opposite of my 1st license which was compliment me on what a nice picture I took, only to look up at me with a disconcerting look on their faces wondering why I wasn’t as dressed up as the picture.

I just hope that my picture I took today comes out “ok”….not super great….not super horrible….just average so I don’t have to be sent on an emotional roller coaster every time I get carded for something.

Additional funny things that happened today in the DMV:

  1. I changed my address on my license to my Grandma’s address which is where I temporarily live. 
  2. When I started to do the eye test I started off reading the letters by saying “BDE8JK….oh wait….” Then I realized that I obviously got it wrong because there are no numbers in those eye charts. The DMV guy enjoyed that very much.
  3. I re-registered to vote since I moved to Los Angeles County after 5 years in San Diego and almost 2 years in Orange County. When I came to this question I desperately wanted to write under the “other” option “Unicorn Sparkle Party ” OR  the quote from Sex and the City “I don’t believe in the Republican party or the Democratic party. I just believe in parties.” I should have done it. 

4.) …….. see picture below

Real Talk

5.) Last but not least…..I openly admit that I can’t stand when people take pictures of me. I really really really really really really don’t like it so naturally, having my driver’s license picture taken was torture. I think the guy taking it felt my awkward energy and asked if I wanted to see it. I agreed and looked. It was alright. I joked with him if he had a Instagram filter he could throw on it and he just looked at me like I was nuts.

This morning my friend Christina posted on my Facebook a picture of her looking at this food seductively with the following comment:

“I give you full license to use this picture on your blog. Also I miss you already, also I’m super proud of you, also I ate a cookie for breakfast and I feel great about it. Love you.”

I have radical girlfriends. I am lucky.

I leave you with this quote to think about for a few seconds and then move on with your fantastic life:

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. https://funnygirlweightloss.wordpress.com/

    LOVED this post deanna 🙂 all of it. Especially the part about the boob problem. I get it. Oh do i get it. And the part about the DMV guy and asking if he had an instagram filter he could use. and the part about the things from starbucks being 10 points…it is totally ridiculous…but it makes it really easy to see why so many people in this country are obese…it’s crazy how much crap we eat.
