I DVR Oprah because its something easy to watch when I get home and just want to relax. Did anyone see Kirstie Alley on yesterday? Coo Coo Bird! Seriously...she is nuts and annoys me on so many levels. Do you remember not too long ago when she was on Jenny Craig and came out in her "bikini" but was totally wearing Spanxs underneath it and you could see the seam?
Anyways...she gained all her weight back. And is certifiable. That's all I have to say about that.
Last week on Oprah they had an episode about weird medical stuff with doctor Oz. They had this lady who was undergoing weight loss surgery...she was only the second in the world to have it done. They shaved her head, drilled holes in her skull, and wired it up to little pacemakers implanted on either side of her chest (sort of above the boobies). After the incisions healed, they turned the pacemakers on and sent a constant stream of electricity to her brain...right into the part that controls hunger. The desired result was that she wouldnt be hungry. It has been like 6 months since she had it done and she has lost 11 pounds. I was thinking THAT SOUNDS CRAZY...but tried to be non-judgemental bc I know that when Lapband and Gastric RnY came out...people probably thought the same thing...and I know some still do!
Now, on to Old Navy. Can I say that I am still bothered by the fact that Old Navy quit carrying their plus sizes in store. It's been over a year. But they have a maternity section! I think there are more fat people in this world than pregnant people. (I totally don't know if that is true, but it sounds good to support my case). There are just a lot of us biggies out in the world that would like some cute clothes!
Final little story. Last night Tracey and I were laying in bed (cue naughty music)...just kidding. We were just laying there talking and Tracey said..."I have something to tell you". Um...yes? He started hesitating and I was getting a little worried. We had been talking about my weight loss and how my body was changing and I thought he was going to say something bad (although he would never do that). He said, "I noticed today that when I hugged you, my arms overlapped and it was easier to hug you. I can really tell your body is changing."
I was like why didnt you want to tell me that? He was afraid I would think he meant that before my weight loss I was fat or something (sshh...we wont tell him I was/am). hahahaha It was just nice to hear :) I told him never to worry about complementing my weight loss...that would always score him bed...I mean brownie points!
