Let It Snow!!

…on my blog anyway.  🙂  Getting my snow fix without the cold or the shoveling. 🙂 🙂

It has been a while once again since I have written on my little spot on the web.  I was looking back at how long I have kept this up and it is going on 11 years.

So why am I considering contacting the people of WordPress to delete all my previous posts and start this blog all over again?

Clean slate and fresh start…some of the stuff that I have written I just don’t want to remember or dwell upon ever again.

Oh well…I will think about it.

Moving on…I got on the scale this morning and almost fell of the scale not once but twice.  I would have fallen off three times if I could have stand what I saw.  Let’s just say I need to lose…say…40ish pounds.  Let’s go for the nice round number of 46 (my age for the next 6 months) to lose.  I think that is possible even with me being the menopausal mama that I am.  On the menopause note…anybody that says that they ENJOY this time of their lives is a goddamned liar or rich (they can afford all the supplements and special meals they need to stay sane).  I have been doing the menopausal mambo for 18 torturous months.  I was on HRT for the past 17 months and I found that:

  1. YOU GAIN WEIGHT…unexplained stomach weight that will not come off no matter what you do
  2. YOUR HAIR FALLS OUT…that is along with the added weight gain
  4. STILL GET PERIODS…if you have your uterus and ovaries…what is the point of going through the damned menopause
  5. YOU STILL HAVE BITCH FLASHES…so the doctors will usually prescribe some form of weight gaining pill like Paxil to keep you from stabbing folks

Now…this has just been my experience and how one Diva handles it does vary but I gained 30 of the 46 (nice round number, huh?) just from taking Premphase for 15 months and the Premarin (a drug produced by the Devil…not only causes weight gain but massive hair loss only from my scalp, my lady mustache is full and luxurious) for 2 months.  I am starting to look like this: walrus 🙂  Bring on the fishes!!  I could become a Pescatarian (it is a word!! LOOK!):

noun: pescatarian; plural noun: pescatarians; noun: pescetarian; plural noun: pescetarians
a person who does not eat meat but does eat fish.

and really blow people’s minds.

Now…there is NOTHING wrong with being a fabulous bikini wearing pescatarian walrus…it is just not for me.  I have canines and like a variety of meats.  Not sure how I will attack this 46 pound battle yet.  I have many different avenues I can take.  I have two months of food from Nutrisystem, then I have 30 days worth of Arbonne, every low carb diet book in print, and Taebo for days on top of the original Turbo Jam.  I shouldn’t be impersonating a Bikini Walrus with all these tools and knowledge at my fingertips.  I blame Poboys, Brothers Fried Chicken, and Drive Thru Daiquiri Shoppe!!!

Real talk though…this is unhealthy and I need to get the weight off.  I am starting to really look tired and bloated.  I don’t mind looking my age…I do mind that I look like a heart attack waiting to happen.  I have already stopped the alcohol and that has made a difference with the bloating.  Alcohol has been replaced with ice cold water (that really helps with the hot flashes) I’m drinking about a gallon a day.  I have stopped all sweets and fried foods.  No bread…which will now become no “white” foods.   I need to get in the exercise…I have started what I call “Taebo Jam”…I have been switching between Taebo and Turbo Jam (if you have done Taebo…then Turbo Jam is Taebo with a perky blonde at the front).  I will utilize my Planet Fitness membership and my Bose headphones (they are the bomb.com) and get my butt back on the elliptical.  I don’t care if it is just for 5 minutes…I will eventually build up my workout time.

Sigh…I’ve done this before…let’s see how I do 10 years later.
