Weekly Weigh-in


So I did really really great this week. Until last night and today. I went to my parents this weekend because a bunch of my friends from high school were in town and we had a little mini-reunion. This was pretty stressful for me because I weigh almost a hundred pounds more than I did in high school. And I just felt self conscious about where I’m at in my life. I’m almost 25. I’ve been married for almost 6 years. I have no kids (which I’m okay with, and almost proud of!). I am a waitress and two different restaurants. I am still in college (7 years after graduation). It’s a little embarrassing. I felt better after we had chatted for awhile though. My friends are doing just a ton better. Most of them have children (one has 4!) and some are divorced. Only one has graduated college yet. 

I did okay on food. Until mom made a sugar cookie cake. I don’t know if y’all have ever had sugar cookie cake, but it’s amazing. And completely NOT diet friendly. Here’s the recipe:

1 stick butter
1/2 c oil
1 cup water
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream ( or mix 1 C milk with 2 tsp vinegar)
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Icing
1 box powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
milk or cream to make spreadable

  1. In a large saucepan, bring butter, oil, and water to a boil.
  2. In bowl mix flour, salt, and sugar.
  3. Pour boiling mixture in bowl and stir batter.
  4. Stir in eggs
  5. Mix baking soda in sour cream then stir it into batter and add vanilla and almond flavoring.
  6. Pour in greased 13X 9 pan, or a cookie sheet with edges and bake at 350* for about 20 minutes.
  7. Ice cake while warm.
  8. Eat and have a mouth-gasm.

It’s seriously one of the best cakes I’ve ever tasted. Like I’ve had dreams about this cake. I ate a really big piece. Like an 800 calorie piece…. 

So I drove back home this morning and weighed in. 222 lbs. I’m pretty happy with this number. I did see lower numbers this week (all the way down to 220!). I’m sure the massive piece of cake didn’t help me stay at 220. But a three pound loss is fine with me! Hopefully I’ll see that 220 again soon!

I’m going to try going to the gym in the morning. (8 am!) Maybe I can make a habit of it. But for now I’m heading to bed. I just finished an 8 hour shift and I’m pooped!
