Huge Update

I have been horrible lately and just have not had the time to blog. Sorry guys! So this is going to be one huge post about some things that have been going on.

First off, I have an amazing friend of mine that I have know since the 5th grade, who has been like a sister to me that has been going through some really difficult things lately so I have been trying to help her as much as I can. I spent half of the day on Saturday with her and her family and then again yesterday I spent half of the day with her and her sister, while she took care of some things. She has a little girl who isn't even a year old yet, so I have been trying to support her in anyway that I can.

Second, my mom came into town this weekend. My mom works on the road so we don't see her much, but recently she has been in the state for work. Well her and my step dad received a phone call on  Friday saying that they had to leave for Seattle, WA for work on Tuesday (today), so they came into town for the weekend so that we could see them before they left. So while we were waiting for them to get here on Saturday, my fiance' and I took my nieces to see the movie "Hop". That was a lot of fun, but kind of tiring at the same time because it was the first time that we had taken my four year old and almost three year old nieces to anything like that. They had fun trying to sit still. Later on that day my mom finally got here and we just hung out and had Philly Cheese Steaks for dinner. Yum! We also went bowling later that night, and then spent a good portion of Sunday afternoon together when we had a very early Thanksgiving dinner. It was delicious. I missed my mom's stuffing so bad, haha!

Third, the bestie finally moved to town!!!!!!!! I am so excited that I could scream. So Sunday evening we went over to help her unload the truck. That didn't take too long thankfully. Then yesterday afternoon I went over again and we ran all over town trying to find this piece for her bed frames to work and then finally gave up and went back to rearrange some things. We got pretty far. The only room that wasn't completely unpacked was the living room.

Today has been pretty crazy so far too. I took yesterday off of work and so of course I had a million things piled up on my desk when I got back this morning. It took me most of the day, (until about ten minutes ago) to finish everything. Today has also been kind of frustrating too. I have recently been doing weight watchers to try and lose some weight. I have done it in the past and have been very successful with it. Well, it isn't working as well this time around. I have been doing it for four weeks now and have only managed to lose 3lbs. I had lost 5 but somehow gained 2 back within the last week. Because of this, I have been having a small emotional breakdown today. I am tired of always being a BIG girl and being looked at differently because of my size. It has been like this almost my entire life. In High School my dad used to be my biggest critic about my weight and I think that has a big part to do of why we don't get along very well. So today after feeling disgusted with myself, I have decided to try a different option.

Aran's parents both tried the Bodybugg system and didn't like it, but they still have the Bodybugg so they said that I could have one of them to try it out. My friend Veronica did it before her wedding and lost a lot of weight and she has recently started tracking her food again with it. I found people on eBay that sell the online subscription to track the calories and everything that you need to track, so I think I may just go that way because if you buy it through the actual website it is $80, which I don't have that kind of money right now. I am in the process of emailing people who have already bought a subscription through eBay to see if it really works and so far everybody that has responded has said nothing but positive things about it. So fingers crossed! Hopefully I can start doing this and start losing more weight.

Well, again sorry that it has been so long. I hope that everyone is having a great Tuesday!


  1. Hey Megan, I'm back on the war path with getting my real butt (not my just had a baby butt) back. If you want to be like diet penpals, or phone buddies, I'm totally down for that. I need the support too...sometimes my mixer calls to me from the pantry and tells me to use it to make cookies. I need back up to tell it NO!!

  2. Ali, I didn't know that you had a blog. I just read the one post you did for it and I loved it! The extra support would be great. The whole weight watchers thing hasn't been doing anything for me lately so I want to try something else. I have quit baking all together because I knew that I would eat them if I did. I hope you keep writing on your blog!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
