Philly is supposed to be home to Soul, not the Blues.

Well, I don't have much to say.... which is why I haven't been blogging but I guess I could tell you a few things that have been bothering me.

  • I have been hungry alot lately... I am not sure why, but I am pretty sure I need a fill, big time.

  • I thought I was doing ok since I have been eating like crap and not gaining weight... but I am on this journey to lose, not maintain.

  • I have PBed once and a while but I haven't been as careful: eating too fast, and not chewing enough.

  • I am feeling sorta depressed lately... since my George is struggling to find a job and we are almost completely out of savings, I feel like he will grow to resent me because I begged for this move. I know it has only been a few weeks and maybe we could have been more careful with our spending but It seemed like he had a job lined up so I figured that more money would be heading our way soon. Hopefully, that job or another will turn up soon, because there is nothing a breadwinner hates more than having his or her spouse support them.

  • Bread is so much better up here... and my band disagrees with my findings... and insists that I stop experimenting with it.

  • I ate a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich on white bread today, I haven't had white bread in years and it transported me mentally to my childhood. It was Yum! but I know it wasn't a good choice. Why do things from our childhoods always taste better in their original form? Grilled cheese tastes good on white bread too... I need to get over my current bread obsession.

  • 75% off Easter Candy railroaded me... Literally.

  • My nephews are the sunshine of my life, which is good since I left the Sunshine State for them.

  • Rahshell sent me some awesome Capris that I hope my fat ass fits in them by summer(At this rate, maybe not?)... I love Rahshell... If you don't follow her blog: Check it out... Band'it for my babies

  • I am not drinking anything near my regular water intake, at first I didn't worry since It's very high and I wouldn't miss a few ounces but now it's way too low... so I am counting bottles tomorrow for sure.

  • I haven't been to the gym since I got here... WTF? I know, I have been distracted but I have been here for several weeks.

  • I love ON DEMAND... It is one of my new drugs, I had Directv in Florida so no ON DEMAND but I am all over it up here... and I watch WAY too much TV.

  • My youngest nephew Blake will be one in 2 days... I can't believe it but It stings so much less since I see him every week at least once, and I will be at his party next weekend. Bittersweet, No?

  • Maybe It is a good time to revisit... ATKINS, but I'm thinking about it.

  • I tried some Capri Leggings the other day... not a total success but I may get some full length ones.

  • I have been reading all your blogs but not commenting as much as I should... I will try harder.

This week, I am going to get to the gym, try to limit my bad food choices as much as possible, and blog at least twice. I am also going to make sure I am getting at least 64 ounces of water a day... I know these sound like wimpy goals but BABY STEPS... People, Baby Steps!


  1. Hey Tootsie, did you get my email. Would you like to meet up with Sandy and me at KOP on Sunday? we would love to see you.. CHIN UP!!

    hAVE George check out indeed.com its a job search engine that is really quite wonderful..

    Good luck, maybe if I know what he is looking for I can help out to the extent I can..

  2. Super jealous of your PB&J sandwich. I know that's not all I should be thinking after reading that, but for some reason... LOL

    I know your hubby will find a job soon. *hugs* :)

  3. I think those are great baby steps - and they do not sound in the least wimpy!

    Hope your husband finds a job soon.

  4. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and George! And I can tell you that Atkins was the boost I needed to get back on the losing track again.

  5. I will send George all my job finding karma and I hope you get out of your case of the blahs soon. Things will turn out alright!!! Damn it if you didn't fling a total craving for PB&J on Soft white bread. Unfortunately, i might as well have cement oured down my throat!!! Hugs to you!

  6. hah! I nominated you too!!! Too bad I'm all old and slow and you beat me to it- go check out your nomination :) http://justfoolinblogdesigns.blogspot.com
    PS- thanks for the good vibes, I'll post as soon as I know anything at all (or I might call you if I need more support...) I'm a little scared right now, we are about to walk out the door to my appt.

  7. What is going on with us!? I am struggling sooooooooo much with my weight right now. I have fallen off the wagon. BAD.
    I also have such a case of the blahs too...
    Thank you for sharing this .
