TODAY is MY DAY to SHINE!!

SITStahs Doing it For Themselves!
First things first, WELCOME! Pull up a seat and SITS right down! So, for those of you not familiar with SITS (The Secret Is in The Sauce), some soSITSticated SITStahs created a blog aimed at supporting fellow bloggers by encouraging others to leave comments and possibly follow. Long story short, each day SITS features a blogger and guess who's basking in the featured blogger ambiance?
ME! Yours Truly!

I invite you: Fellow Blog Buddies, Me So Hongry First-timers, and my Supportive Lurkers to join me on my journey as I share my humorous take on my everyday sometimes zany weight loss exploits.
The Conception of my Baby...Me So Hongry
It all started with THIS picture of me dressed as the not so Eensy Weensy Spider that clogged up the water spout.
THIS picture so vividly displays the reality of my weight problem that I succeeded in ignoring for quite some time. THIS picture delivered the roundhouse kick to the face that I needed to stop being a VICTIM and start being a VICTOR! 

Probably a week after this picture was taken, I joined Weight Watchers (WW) for the umpteenth time, hence the blog subtitle...Misadventure of a Weight Watchers Repeat Offender. So...in keeping with one my WW goals to manage my feelings, I decided to start blogging, which quickly turned in to FREE therapy.

Getting to know me...Getting to know all about me(Well from this title you can tell that I like musicals.)
A few months ago a fellow blogger asked me to write 10 honest statements about myself, and I felt several of those statements revealed the true ME of Me So Hongry. Without further adieu:
  • My guilty pleasures: Wearing fake chest hair and mustaches, Wham! (Yes, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go Wham!), eating peanut butter from the jar (No one else eats the PB, so yes, I double and sometime quadruple dip!), watching iCarly, Avatar: the Last Air Bender, and Zoey 101.
  • Every Christmas my boys (ages 16 and 12) and I look forward to riding through the same hoity toity neighborhood looking at Christmas lights. After viewing lights, we mosey on over to Starbucks for hot cocoa and dessert. I want to create long lasting traditions that I hope my kids plan to pass on to their children.

  • Often I put on high heel shoes and dance like a stripper (upstairs alone in my room of course...and I learned ALL my moves from Carmen Electra's Aerobics Striptease DVD). I sometimes display my private dancing skills when out with friends. Under the right condition, you might find myself and some of my girlfriends swinging around a stop sign or two downtown...yes, as a stripper would.

  • I struggle with my weight loss roller coaster ride on a daily basis. Where's the magic pill? I blame my kids, plain and simple.   
 
  • Pre-Kids I was one JAZZY chick, but you best believe I make the pay by performing random jobs around the house, like: Remote-Control-Go-Getter, Shoe Buckler (during the days when my stomach prohibited self bucking), Get-My-Stuff-Out-Of -The-Car-Retriever, and the most important random job of all....Scapegoat-for-Things-I-Lost. I blame them for things I misplaced usually by saying, "You had it last!!!!!"
  • I am easily annoyed and short tempered. Take for instance: Why do drivers rubberneck when they see a wreck? Do you plan to get out and help? Keep it moving people! Why do you self check your groceries at Wal-Mart when your basket clearly contains over 50 items!!? People, please self check with 15 items or less. Why do you bring items with NO price tag to the register at Ross Dress For Less? PLEASE bring the same or a like item. and, WHY are you writing a check?
  • My Mom, my biggest weight loss cheerleader, says I am mean. And I am, but only when the situation calls for it.
  • I am an only child who at times exhibits only child characteristics: selfishness, self-absorption, and super ultra competitiveness. But on the other hand, I often display resourcefulness, independence, and self-reliance. My more POSITIVE, admirable qualities helped me achieve a weight loss of 45 pounds.

    Speaking of qualities and characteristics, check out these not so admirable qualities...
The lovely ladies at SITS instructed me to choose 3 of my fave post, but it was as though they were asking me to choose a favorite son. In addition to my 3 fave post, I wanted to share some of my greatest weight loss triumphs with you (click the links below):

  7. Whoa -- GREAT job with your weight loss! You must be **SO** proud!! I have to say, though, and I hang my head in shame while doing so, but I admit that I am actually in fact (gasp) one of those rubber-neckers who slows down to stare at something happening on the side of the road. I know! I know! I'm sorry!!

    Happy SITS day, though!! :)

  40. Ok, first off I am LOVIN' this blog babeh! Stopping by from SITS to congrats you on your special day! I too struggle with weight loss and have found (finally!) an eating plan that works for me. But getting pregnant with baby number 4 sidetracked me and now I'm back on the plan. It's slimming world, which is safe when pregnant, it's a healthy eating rather than calorie restriction. Fingers crossed it helps with these last few months of pregger weight!

    I'll be popping into see you from time to time, 45 pounds so far is AMAZING!! you go! x

    ReplyDelete
  41. LMAO! Darn funny? Why did I not read you before?

    Have a fabulous SITs day!

    ReplyDelete
  42. WOW, well done, loosing your weight! Great!
    I don't have weight problem because my motto and action is: do not eat more than you consume.
    If I know that my day is mainly sitting and exploring blogs :) I do not eat as I would when going to have a trip to the pyramids and walk about 6 kilometers! :)
    If I overeat sometimes I go back on track the next day.

    Like you! No diet but a lifestyle!

    Happy SITS day and sunny SITSta greetings from Cairo!

  43. I too have been on WW since after giving birth to my eighth child last June. I do a weekly weigh-in post each Monday and though I managed to lose just over 40lbs so far I've put a couple back on over Christmas. I need to get back on the right road!

    I'll be keeping up with your progress. It's not an easy journey but we can do it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow, you did great last year! Halfway to your goal, and this year your goal is within reach! Looking forward to checking back to see how you're doing! You inspire me!

  50. This really was a great post, and I felt like you gave a really good glimpse into who you are. You also reminded me of this woman who went through the express lane with a full cart (FULL) on Christmas Eve one year. If it hadn't have been Christmas, she would be dead.

    Kidding.

    Sorta.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Coming at U from SITS...

    Wowsers! I am so totally in awe of your weight loss achievement... I got kicked out of WW --- they said I made them look bad... not my fault I can't eat all those points everyday without throwing up... or that all the foods I like to eat are only 1-2 points... their advice to me?
    Exercise for longer periods everyday... like I am a superstar with a trainer and I get PAID to exercise 8 hours a day... I am SO NOT Angelina Jolie or Reese Witherspoon... have a kid and 2 weeks later show up in a bikini... 6 kids got me this way-- yep, I blame them cuz I was just making sure they came out nice and big and healthy! LOL!( btw - they did)
    Oh- and I gotta get me one of them poles!

    ReplyDelete
  60. You go! I lost 70 pounds on Weight Watchers in 2002 and have kept it off...give or take a few pounds. (Mostly give!) I'm trying to lose those few pounds for my wedding in 2 months, so I'm back on it again. Whenever I gain a little, I just join WW Online and it's off in a month or two. I wish they'd let lifetime members join WW Online for free, or at least at a discount.

    Happy SITS day, by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Enjoy your day! I'm a fellow WW... made lifetime last year, but I've fallen off the wagon a bit. Working my way back on!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  65. Happy SITS day!

    I'm on the WW wagon myself - second time around. I now have only 10 more pounds to go and, of course, they are the HARDEST.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congrats on the weight loss already-- I am always "hongry" as you put it too, but so is life! I love how you channeled Chuck Norris with the roundhouse kick to the face. My husband would be so proud.

    I just have to say, when I was stopped in to SITS this morning to see who the FB was, I was smiling. Smiling because I thought my fam was the one who invented the word 'hongry':) My mom started it and we've continued it & it's usually in the sentence.."I be soooo Hongry". LMAO...yeah, we say it like that:)

    Well, a BIG CONGRATS to you on your special day & for all the accomplishments you've had on your journey....keep on.

    ReplyDelete

  81. I do believe that I need to follow your blog because--seriously--15 minutes ago, I weighed in at weight watchers and GAINED. Granted, it was 2.2 lbs (not huge, but still). I need to get back on track and knowing that someone else who is a repeat offender (me too!), may be the missing link!

    ReplyDelete

  85. I think I love you.

    First PLEASE tell me where to find chest hair. Awesome. Second, I am tempted to go find a stop sign to twirl around right now because that may simply be the best idea I've ever heard. Did I mention it's 6 degrees here? And third? I love that you are greatly annoyed at well, everything. Everything greatly annoys me also. Hope you have a fantastical fb day!

  125. Happy SITS day!

    I too am a WW repeat offender. I went to WW after having my second child, lost 40 pounds and made my lifetime membership, then got preganant with my 3rd kid and put it all back on. She will be 6 next month and I just found the motivation to go back to WW a few months ago. However, I'm doing great and I'm almost at my goal!

    Would love to have that progresso package to help keep me on track...just sayin'

  138. I have a picture that reminds me of 'me feeling I like I was at my worst'. I keep it in my dresser drawer. It's motivation, for sure.

  139. Congratulations on not only being SITS featured blogger, but also on your 'lifestyle change'. I LOVE it!

    And I'm adoring your spark, fire, and smiling eyes that could be ones best friend or enemy--ha! I dig your qualities.

    I'm Jo, by the way and I'm a vegan (for moral reasons) and like yourself, I tell people; 'This is a lifestyle--not a diet'.

    So, I congratulate you and wish for you the best in your continued vision for yourself.

    So glad it was your SITS day so I could stop by and be introduced.

    Happy 2010 to you and yours.

    Peace, love, happiness and health,

  146. Good morning and THANK YOU for making my day! As I was reading I caught myself nodding my head, saying "YES!," and LMAO! I too blame my 3 kids for all my short-fallings...after all, you have to have fun as a parent, right? Keep it going, gf! :)

  151. Happy SITS day! Your self-checkout one totally got me.

    I have something along those lines that irritates me. If I'm in a long line at the store and have all 3 of my little darlings hanging off my shopping cart, I do not appreciate the glares from someone behind me who thinks I should let them go ahead just because they only have 10 items.

    I'll let them go if I haven't already been waiting forever, but NOT if there were 5 people in line ahead of me. Sorry, I've got to get my kids out of there.

    AND, they should just go use the self-checkout that has no line!

    Phew! Didn't realize I had such a vent coming!

  152. High five from a SITSta. Ok, that was a tad dorky.
