Devil's Night

Hello my friends....still here???? (minus 2 followers....booooo)

I know my absence has been causing some grief, hence the emails I have been getting about it. I will be back soon I promise. I just need to get my "life" back into the routine that it has been used to.

The last few days I have been sick in bed with a horrible sinus/chest infection, that I'm on medication for. Good news is that this gives me an opportunity to catch you all up. Not that I really have anything exciting to say cause I have done nothing but work and sleep.

So far this is where I am at with my weight loss......219.6lbs.....that's a total loss of 63.4lbs.


I have gone from a size 24 to a size 16. Boy is it hard on the pocket book though, especially with all the new "business" clothes that I had to purchase for my new position.

On the shrinkvivor front, I am still going strong. We are down to 3 tribe members, the rest have been voted off to exile island. We are still tracking minutes of exercise and doing mini-challenges. This weeks is NO CANDY......really???? your gonna pull this shit on Halloween???......this week is tough, not gonna lie. Go team Blue!!!!!



I also received a blogger award during my hiatus from Fat in Suburbia. It is a Versatile Blogger award. I think this is perfect for me.....as I go from one thing to another.....lol



Versatile:  ver-sa-tile [vur-suh-tl] or, especially British, [vur-suh-tahyl]:  capable of, or adapted for, turning easily from one to another various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.:  a versatile writer.


Here is how the award works:
  1. You thank the person who presented you with the award.

  3. You award 5 other newly discovered bloggers.

Thank you Fat In Suburbia for thinking of me.....I love my followers!!!

  3. I've had a knife pulled on me twice, and both times I walked away without a scratch.
  4. I didn't cry at my wedding or the birth of my son....my husband calls me a hardass.
  5. I love designer glasses....I have 8 pairs....I sometimes think people remember me for my frames.
  6. I HATE cake.

Miss Me Yet?

Hello my loyal readers....friends, family, fellow bloggers & shrinkvivor contestants

I am sorry that I have been a bad blogger and been neglecting my duties to you. This is the first time ever since starting my blog that I haven't been regularly updating. I have NO TIME. Since getting this new job, but hanging on to my other one (part-time) I am working a minimum of 57 hours a week, plus working out (my Shrinkvivor team needs me) plus taking care of my family, plus cleaning house, and plus, plus, plus.........

I need to clone myself.....anyone know how to do that?

Please forgive me, and don't leave...it will only be for a short period of time I promise.

What I am going to try to do for now is just do some short and sweet posts, and when my life gets back to normal, I will come back with my more in depth blogs.

I still need to post my 60 pound bra & pantie shot....that will be coming soon!!!

In the Shrinkvivor realm, I made it through another week, but we lost Megan (booooo) I logged 392 minutes of exersize and lost a total of 2.6lbs last week.

I am 222.4lbs!!!!!!
(actually I weighed myself this morning and I was 220 but I'm not making an officially weigh in till wednesday...lol)

Almost in my teens people.....hahahahaha

AND........I have a NSV (non-scale victory) that I would like to share.....I purchased some new pants for my job and they were a size....drum role please....

That means I am officially out of the "fat" stores. I can actually step into clothing stores that I have NEVER been in, or haven't been into in over 12 years......

Well I gotta run as I have to go to work, and have a staff meeting right after.
Love you guys....and although you may not be seeing my usually comments on your pages, rest assured I am still reading them on my breaks at work!!!

Happy Turkey Day Canada!!!



Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends & family....


May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Ok so first off I want to apologize for not being around for like 8 days.....it's been crazy around here.
There has been a few changes in my routine and it has thrown me out of wack. Hopefully by the end of this week I will be more focused.

So what has been so crazy you ask?



I got a new job! Actually I start tomorrow. It is a Accounts Representative position with a Headhunting agency. They have been around for 25 years and well known. I am very excited. Last week was full of interviews, and one-on-ones with the staff. All in all I was offered the position on Friday, so it all happened very fast.

Then I started freaking out cause I was like "What the Hell am I going to wear?"

You see losing 60 lbs puts a damper on all of the "business attire" you own. I basically have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. That's the fun part, the shitty part is spending the money on clothes that hopefully won't fit me in the next couple of months. Then I am going to have to do it all over again.


What helped ease the pain of spending the money a little bit was the $100 cash prize I won in the B.O.O.B.S Back to Basics Challenge. That's right I won 1st place in my category. I lost like 8% between July & September. I was very excited to get the email congratulating me. Then I was told $105 was deposited into my paypal account.....I went ape shit!!! I figured I would get some kind of prize in the mail, boy was I wrong.....
Another positive this week was I made it past Week 1 in Shrinkvivor. Our team didn't win the idol this week, but we did lose our member Erin. I managed to get in 334 minutes of exercise and not one bite of fast food to complete our challenge. This weeks challenge was the same for exercise minutes, but the mini-challenge was to get enough sleep. I definitely don't have a problem doing that! You can keep up on my Shrinkvivor stats by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.

I have decided to start doing my "official" weigh in's on Wednesdays now only because that's when I have to do it for Shrinkvivor. When this is done I will probably move it back to Saturdays.
Let's just say so far this week I'm doing great and it's a loss. Let you know on Wednesday!!!

Ta-Ta for now as I need to start beautifying my face for Thanksgiving with the family. I'm going to have to maintain self control today, at least I don't like pumpkin pie.....that should help somewhat.....lol

Black & Orange

OCTOBER IS HERE!!!!!!.....do you know what that means??????

That's right....it's time for Black & Orange baby......this is my favourite time of the year. Oh and ps....I can carve the shit out of pumpkins. Last year one of my pumpkins made the front page of our city's newspaper. Here is a preview of some of my past pumpkins.....





Not bad for 12 hours worth of carving.....hahahahahah

Also welcoming October with a bang this morning was my red headed friend George.




Well George (or some of you may know him as TOM) has reared his ugly ginger head once again. I am crabby, cranky, miserable, and want to stab someones eye out with a red hot poker......

.....but the one thing that makes this bearable even after all that is that I have lost 1lb. Even with the bloating, and the water retention a pound loss is a great thing. On top of that my weigh in's have moved from Saturday's to Wednesday's due to Shrinkvivor so I still have 4 days to lose....YES!


If you are interested in following what I am doing for Shrinkvivor, and wondering what the weeks challenges are, I have posted a tab at the top of my page labeled Shrinkvivor. Just click on that and all will be revealed.....lol.... and by all means if you are stalking me from a competing team take a look at the tab...be afraid....be very afraid.

Now 60 lbs is just around the corner. I have to lose 1.8lbs to reach that milestone. When I do, I will be posting my measurements again as well as a new Bra & Panty comparison pic.....aren't you excited???.....you know you are, well I know my hubby is at least!

Speaking of hubby, at the moment he is making me some French Toast & Bacon for breakfast cause today is "Treat Day" so I gotta run......

Thanks for the comments, support & motivation peeps....you are what gets me going and through all the humps in this adventure.....
