A weighty matter again
After a day off for sleeping on the couch after work, I finally got around to reading the comments from my post the other day. I thought I would use those for todays post.
Some of you asked if I remembered something called Metrecal. No, can't say that I have.
On the subject of packing up and saving off sized clothes. I wish I would have. I ended up feeling so depressed about my weight that I just knew I would never get back in to some of them and I had to get rid of them all.
How I do this. I substitute 2 meals for shakes. I have a shake for breakfast and one for lunch. Then I have 3 100 calorie snacks per day. I've found a variety of things I can have for snacks such as 100 calorie cereal bars, pudding or fruit cups, yogurt, and even single serve tuna packets. As for the laxative effect, it doesn't bother me too much but I've read that if you didn't have much fiber in your diet prior to using SlimFast that it could give you problems.
Amount of loss? I think the amount of pounds I lost was misrepresented in my last post. It looked like it said twenty two pounds but in fact it actually said two point two pounds. I wish it had been 22 but I'll take anything as long as it's going in the right direction. The actual total is probably higher but from September 1 to September 18 I didn't have a scale to weigh myself.

Q&A from yesterday
There were several questions in the comments yesterday so today I'll answer those.
Sandra asked if this was the fair parade. Yes it was. Even if I don't visit the fair at all, I sit out in my front yard to watch the fair parade on Saturday. I love that it goes right by my house.
Ginny said "I be you didn't even get paid extra. Well I did work overtime so there was OT pay but the first 40 hours were regular pay. I did tell my boss that I should get a bonus. He told me to hold on, walked out and came back with a choice of either a roll of painters tape, a can of flex all or some calking. If nothing else my boss does have a sense of humor.
Ginny also asked about the candy being thrown. Yes, just about every organization that marches in the parade has candy that they throw out to kids.
Anni said she'd rather have a beer while watching the parade. Since I can't even stand the smell of beer I stuck with coffee. She also asked about my having to make sure all orders were ready and out the door. Some were bakery orders others were not. There are two different organizations that order from us for the fair. The Lions Club has a chicken dinner and they order Italian bread from the bakery and they also get pints of milk that they sell as one of their beverage options. The other organization that has a food tent order just about all their stuff from us. They get milk, grocery items, hot dogs, water and a lot of other things too numerous to mention. I also baked pies for them this year.
Now that you've sat through all those answers, here's a short video of the horses that were in the parade.

A post that shouldn't be written
And yet, here I am writing it any way. I'm tired, I'm stressed and anxiety is setting in. When I get like this I feel very alone in the world. It's also when all the things that I can normally deal with seem to become extra large and weigh me down. It isn't any one thing that has me feeling this way. It's a combination of things. If I don't post as much or suddenly do a disappearing act, you'll know I'm experiencing a mini melt down.
So why shouldn't this post be written? Because I don't like my blog to be all "woe is me". And now that I have written this post I feel like I owe you some flowers and candy.

The saga of the cake
I thought yesterdays cake post was a one time deal but since so many were curious about it I thought I would continue the story.
The reason I know about the demise of the cake is because it was for an employee who was celebrating her birthday. She told another employee who told me the story. Let me just say that this girl and her boyfriend are a daytime drama all by themselves. Both are young, as in early 20s. The boyfriend has no job and is supported by the girlfriend. She frequently comes in to work with bruises and tells everyone about how he beat her up. She'll say that she kicked him out but two days later he's back. In the beginning I felt sorry for her but the more I hear I just can't any more. When she's telling the story about how he pushed her around, or tried to choke her or whatever else, she's smiling and laughing about it. Several of us have told her she needs to dump the guy because things will only get worse.
Aside from the boyfriend issues, let me mention about the dog who sat on the cake. She just got the dog. Ok, so what's wrong with that? Who doesn't like to have a pet? Well nothing is wrong with getting an animal if you can afford it. This girl was crying that she didn't have any electric because it had been shut off. Call me crazy but getting the electric turned back on should come before getting a dog.
