OD’ed on Sugar

I’m sorry to say that I OD’ed a little bit on sugar yesterday at a bachelorette party for a friend that is getting married next week. Two cupcakes and a spoonful of frosting! Good heavens! It was so much sugar I felt sick to my stomach (and barfed a little bit). Ugh, let’s not repeat that episode again, shall we?  I swear that although my brain has learned that sugar is evil, my tongue sure hasn’t learned that lesson.

 

 

 

Billi will be a beautiful bride!

A tongue tattoo gone awry. That’s supposed to be a bat.

The prerequisite penis cake.

Revelry! What was going on here? A casual game of leapfrog? A little “how to” instruction for late night frolicking?

New product alert!

I LOVE these Oceanspray White Cran-Peach flavor packets! Only 5 calories. Just add to a 12 oz bottle of water. Seriously yum!

However, it is flavored with aspartame, which is known to be harmful (and weigh-loss prohibitive) in large quantities, so use sparingly. (seriously. Click that link above. Great article about aspartame. And if you’re going to poo-poo it for being from a non-reputable source, a lot of the same information can be found here, except the language is a lot more straight-forward in the first article.)

Sugar is the devil!

Well, overall I think the party was a success. The turnout was only mediocre (7 people total) but I think everyone that came over had a good time! Mostly we ate, drank, giggled, talked, played a few board games (Apples to Apples) and giggled some more.  There’s about a trillion empty beer bottles in my kitchen!  I have a refrigerator full of leftover food, which is unfortunate; there’s no way I’ll be able to eat it all!  I am instructing hubby to take the leftover sweets (cupcakes, rice krispies) to work to give away to his co-workers. I don’t need that shit in my house anymore because I’ve done nothing but eat it all day today! BAD CHRISTINE!  Sugar is the devil, I swear. It’s like crack: you try a little, then need a constant dose of it forever after. It’s seriously wretched!  I’ve eaten very little today, but there’s no doubt that I’ve gone over my calorie limit because of the damn sugar-crack.  If it’s not gone tomorrow, I’m going to throw it out!

Tomorrow there’s a showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show! I’ve never been to a showing of it in a theater; I can’t wait! It’s only $5, which is even better! I can’t wait! I wonder if I should go dressed up…?  Columbia was always my favorite, but I definitely don’t have any “costumes” laying around that would fit her character! Boo!

A year ago today I was interviewing for a job (interviewed with the horrible place that I no longer work for!), packing for a trip to California, and I weighed 182 pounds. One year later, I’m down 54 pounds! Awesome!  A post from last year, which shows how desperate I was to get the fills working for me:

Today I nearly forgot that I had a doctor’s visit!!! But I made it there in time. AND HE GAVE ME A FILL! About freaking time! It was fascinating — I could actually feel the band squeeze my tummy. It was a trippy feeling but kinda cool. :-)

I was totally deceptive when I went in for the appointment, too. I wanted to make sure he’d give me a fill, but he wouldn’t if I have lost weight. So I wore heavy clothes (in layers), chugged a bottle of water. I figure it put on 2-3 pounds??? Turns out I was *STILL* down 0.1 pound from my last visit! Anyway, it was enough to convince him to give me another fill. Hooray!!!
