Let It Be



Writing Prompt: A restaurant that removed your favorite item from the menu, a bad cover of a great song… Write a post about something that should’ve been left untouched, but wasn’t. Why was the original better?

I am the kind of girl that doesn’t enjoy change. I’ll except it (because I don’t have a choice) but O will bitch about it , and possibly write a strongly worded letter in the process. And one of the things where I refuse change to happen is my food. Please don’t mess with my food. Food companies are always trying to improve something and I hate it. But when it comes to food from one of my favorite restaurants it would be Kam’s Chop Suey. There is not one thing on the menu that I don’t love,  but I will tell you if they changed the way that they make Chinese Fried Chicken I would throw a fit.  Now (This is the fat girl talking) I have had lots of Chinese food, and lots of chicken, my mom has her favorite restaurant and she likes the chicken, but there is no ginger in it (I think I’s ginger), it’s not my Kam’s Chinese chicken. No one wants to hear me sing a sing in protest… but I swear if they change the way they make chicken there will be there in from with a song AND a sign…..



Until Next Time….

Tyra Takes On Weight Watchers -Week 8


This week was a mixed bag, I gained activity points, but I also tapped into some of my 49,  my energy this week was sort of low… only to find out that I had a cold that was brewing in my body. This week I gained 1.2 pounds. My Weight Watchers Leader asked me how I felt about it, and I just shrugged and said, I knew I gained weight, “I felt it”. I understand that 5 pounds is a lot to lose in a week and I accept that that week was a fluke, but I also knew not to expect it this week, so I wasn’t looking to loose any weight this week, so a gain is not all that unexpected to me.

This week I had another revelation. I go to meeting for one reason. In my mind I understand the mechanics and the how’s of weight loss, but it’s hard and every week I need to be reminded of why I’m doing this and what I want my end goal to be. It would be so easy if I went to one meeting got all the tools I needed and went on my way, and was successful, and anyone who’s reading this knows it’s just not the reality of it. You have good weeks and you have bad weeks, and like I said this one was somewhat in the middle. Did I make good choices everyday this week, no, but I had to tools available to me to make the right ones. And one good decision that I make every week is going to a meeting no matter what is going on…and just today I was telling my mom how proud I am when I walk through that door because the pancake house is right next door…and not once have I got to the restaurant after a meeting (or anytime for that matter) and partaked in those extra large portions of food.

This week I want to stay on program and go into the week with a positive outlook, make sure that I get in as much exercise as possible, which I admit will be a bit difficult with a cold… I don’t know about anyone else,. working out while six is a huge challenge; and with all the mouth breathing guzzling down water will be super easy for me. So I won’t be going to the gym at all this week, I will stay at home and work out on the elliptical machine; that way I wont’ infect others and if I need to pass out on the floor I can do it on the comfort of my own home

Since I wasn’t able to do it this week  have a goal of losing 2 pounds… that would get my at my 5% weight loss goal  And that would also put me back on track for those goals that I made: So remember those goals that I made last week (I’m making goals all over the place) That tiny one about losing 7 pounds in 6 weeks… well now  I have 3 more to lose, and I’m 4 pounds down from the 35 pounds I wanted to lose for my July trip…

I have lose weight, I have gained and loss again and through out all of that 78 pounds is gone from my body… and I am very proud of that. I think this pretty much stated what my weight loss has been so far.
