Everyone around me is dropping poundage that I’m picking up. Ugh my lack of testosterone. B and Pony don’t even try.

I was trying until today when I decided to go to Sonic Happy hour. I ordered regular and she rang up large but I didn’t correct her. Empty calories were calling my name so sue me. πŸ™ƒ

  1. It’s going around. We have been working in the heat everyday, sweating, hard work, and I haven’t even remembered to eat until in the evening. You would think I would be loosing some weight. Hubby is dropping pounds like no ones business, and he is eating like a teenager due to our situation, we only have a microwave until the kitchen is rebuilt. I got on the scales yesterday, and I GAINED almost 10 pounds. WHAT???? How is that even possible?

    1. The science baffles me and the literature on weight loss is very confusing. I have heard more than once that not eating enough calories is bad too. The body goes into starvation mode and stores fat. I was always thin but not healthy thin. Living off air thin. I do not want to go back to that.

      1. Me either but it was more “economics thin” as I called it. I didn’t have money for food LOL. People would say I was anorexic, and I was. I saw a picture of myself a few years ago from during that time and it scared me. I was skeletal. People said I needed to eat but I was on my own at a very young age, had bills to pay. So it was pay the bills, and have somewhere to live, a vehicle to drive to get to work to make money to pay the bills or food. Hence economics thin. πŸ™‚ Since my house has been ripped to the studs, I just jump up in lets get going mode since no one seems to be honest when they take our money to do the repairs. Eating slips my mind until I am hungry. Which seems to be once we are almost done for the day and I am exhausted. I am like you, I don’t want to go back to the size I was when I was “economics thin” but I feel you are right about the body going into starvation mode and then when I eat it just turns it into fat because it doesn’t know when it will get food again. Things will go back to normal when the house is done, or should I say when me and hubby finish it because we have given all the money to all the people who were suppose to do the work but it is sub-par, and not complete. We still need to install cabinets, flooring, the appliances, clean all the furniture, move it all back in, and on and on. Even though we have paid people for these things, it is going on everywhere here since the hurricane last year. Legally there is nothing that can be done because the courts here are backed up with stories just like ours. We can wait years for legal remedy, or do it ourselves. I know it will get done. I keep trying to have faith that there is a lesson here somewhere πŸ™‚ OH, then last night out of the blue we get a call and hubby was offered a job. He just retired from the military after 30 years. Guess where we would have to move to…the great state of Texas πŸ™‚ Maybe in 8 weeks. Soooooo, I might be here finishing this stuff on my own for a bit and then relocate to your neck of the woods πŸ™‚ What an adventure this year has been πŸ™‚

      2. Oh my goodness friend. Sorry to hear about what you’re going through. Shame that shady contractors would take advantage of hurricane victims. Wrong on so many levels. Texas has been very good to us. You’ll love it here. Cheers to getting back to normal.

      3. I appreciate that my friend. It is what it is. I have filed complaints with the state contractors board, as they seem to be unaware that this is happening here. The lawyers say they are backed up with clients for years, the courts as well. It is a shame but it is such a small area that there aren’t enough people that it matters, if that makes sense. It should matter. There are people who are way worse off than us, older, and can’t do the work themselves, that are living in cars, rv’s, in motels, or with family. There are ones that are younger that have to work, and don’t have the life experience or knowledge because there was always someone to call to handle home stuff. I thought, you know it’s been over a year. This is a tourist area, voted “best little cool town in America”. Where is the attention? But the powers that be would rather push it under the rug, than ruin the cash cow. Sadly.

        I have heard Texas is amazing, and although I have lived here ALL my life, the shine has worn off as of late hahaha πŸ™‚

        Hubby wasn’t planning on going back to work after retirement. We worked hard to pay off our house, and have no debt so when he retired we could spend all the time together that we have missed BUT hahaha retirement hasn’t turned out to be the fun laid back time with all this stuff going on, so we thought well, it’s a great opportunity, and there is lots of travel involved. Maybe this is what all this has been leading up to. If we weren’t going through what we are going through, we might not be open to this new opportunity. Little Miss silver lining over here hahaha.

      4. Little Miss silver lining is healthy coping in my opinion. It’s all perspective. Attitude is everything and will see you through.

      5. Thank you my friend for the positive encouragement. πŸ™‚ I don’t know why I always feel the need to over share with you. I think it stems from when I first started the blog, you were one of the first people I talked with consistently. One of the 3 people that that I have always commented on regularly, and felt a true connection. No judgment, you are always receptive, and always cared. For that I am thankful Jill πŸ™‚
