Frustrated!!

When we first joined UWeight Loss, we paid our starter fee and a maintenance fee. This starter fee included our protein powder, vitamins, detox pills, pedometer, journals and hundreds of recipes. We go and weight in 3 times a week or as much as we can. We finished our detox week last night, but I’ve been calling it my crap free week at home (since I need to really kick my addiction to sugar) Anyways, we went to go weight in last night and to pick up our vitamins for this week and … there’s a hitch! We were told that the vitamins were included in the 350$ starter kit. Since that’s a great deal of money we made sure and asked them if it was included. WELL, we go there today and they tell us that no they were only free for the first week and we have to pay an additional $50 each a week for them!! That’s 100$ a week! . I was in such an outrage that I was almost crying in the room with the lady. I asked her if we had to take the vitamins and if we could do it without them and she said we have to take them to be apart of the program.

So the moral of the story, never join a weight loss place. EVER! There are not there to really help you, they just want your money! So since our Starter fee of 350$ each is non-refundable, we can only get 700$ back if we want to quit. Kyle might stay with the program since he is overweight, but I am not. I didn’t really want to join in the first place, I just really wanted to support him and his decision. He feels terrible of course since I’ve been crying all night. But I guess you learn from your mistakes and move on. We’re still going to follow most of the recipes and work out more to make up for the vitamins I guess? This is all so confusing to me. I hate it.

I really hate it.

Sunday Updates :)

Hello again my lovely friends!

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I was working all day at Fabutan and boy did I get a work out. In the morning I went to go catch my 8:30 bus to be at work for 9 and as I was sitting there, I just happened to look at the other bus stop that was 20 feet away from me and there I saw my bus… drive right past me.. I was freaking out!! I had to be at work at 9 and since we always work alone, I was the one who had to open the salon. Anyways, I ended up calling Kyle in a mad rage, since he was the one who told me to sit at the wrong stop. He told me he would call his mom and see if we could get her car since our beater is in the shop.. well as this was all going on I decided I was going to walk (I am very stuborn) I was not going to wait, but walk the entire way. (It’s like a few miles..lol) and by the time they came and found me walking I was 3/4 the way there.. I am a very fast walked when I’m in a pissy mood. lol But it all worked out, I made it with a minute to spare. πŸ™‚ I’m a little crazy I know.

Anywhoo.. On a good note, I received an award today!! It’s the Sisterhood Award thanks to my good friend Rudy and her GREAT blog, Completely Delicious Life. So I want to pass this award along to 3 of my favorite blogs, which I read daily of course!! πŸ˜‰

Major Temptation Straight Ahead!

Oh Crap..OH CRAP… HOLY CRAP!!!

I totally forgot about my plans for tonight. It’s Kyle’s best friends birthday and the lucky guy is turning 26 (?) I’m horrid, I know. I can never remember how old people are. I have so many friends that are all different ages so it’s like impossible to remember them all.. but holy crap.

We are all supposed to meet at Dylan O’Conner’s where the limo is to get us. Go to DW’s house and pick him and his wife up and then… go out for dinner. For those who have been following my blog lately or even some just finding me now (HELLO!!) I am following a diet from UWeight Loss. This is my first week and we are in detox mode. I have a strict schedule to follow, along with kyle.. and now we have a birthday dinner, and we’re not allowed alcohol! What is a girl to do!!

Would it be right to say I’m not hungry or don’t want to drink?

They are all quite heavy drinkers!! Besides I have to work tomorrow morning at 9 at Fabutan! I would never bail on someones birthday but I know I will be hungry and seeing every temptation known to man kinds.. Will I stick it out?? Will I keep eating the way I have.. or will I fail??

AAAHHHH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I hate times like there where you have to sacrifice something your doing for the enjoyment of others. We will see… on a good note, I will FOR SURE be taking a “before” picture of myself tonight. One with my bathing suit for Leah at Oh She Glows since I entered in her Oh She Glows “Bikini Boot Camp”. Also, a picture of me so all you lovely people can really see what I look like..:)

Hope you all have a great afternoon, I’m headed for my weigh-in. Hopefully I lost another pound or so.. *wish me luck* and talk to you tonight…. lata gatas!

Late Night Post!

Good Evening!

I just got off work at the tanning salon! I am absolutely exhausted. Kyle made me tandori chicken with sweet potatoes. I’ll post the recipe hopefully some time tomorrow… Also, me and Kyle have to be wearing pedometers to measure the amount we walk in an average day. So far it’s been around 7-8 thousand steps, but in my last 4 hour shift at Fabutan, I walked 7,500 alone!! I can’t imagine how many I will walk by tomorrow afternoon at my weight in!.

Well it has been a long night, and I cannot wait to sit down, light up some incense and read some of my book (Watchmen graphic novel..I’m a BIG nerd) and cuddle up in bed. I hope you all have a great evening and I will be talking with you tomorrow!
