Welcome to Snarkfest

Welcome to my snarky corner of the web. Join me as I discuss everything from wine to chocolate. There may be a few other topics mixed in there too. I talk a bunch about my amazing offspring, 19 and 17. I sometimes go on and on about my secret crush on the amazing Mike Rowe. I talk about things that irritate me or things that make me happy. Sometimes I just talk to hear myself talk. Feedback is always appreciated but please make sure it's respectable. No nudity or profanity. I'm the only one allowed to be profane. But any and all snark is welcome and appreciated!

Snarkfat - My Journey

9/29/2014 UPDATE:  Wow it's been too long since I updated this page. What a lazy slacking blogger I am! Well if you've read today's blog you'll see that I am officially down 30 lbs. No pics to post. I'll post a few full shots once I've hit another goal (like my final goal, maybe) because I haven't got the stones to get partially naked again like I did last June and post for pics.  But anyway, 30 lbs down so far!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6/20/13 UPDATE: Be afraid. Be very afraid. What I'm about to post may scare small children and cause animals to run into the forest, never to be seen or heard from again. Don't say you haven't been warned.

Here are my BEFORE pics. My curly hair is just a rat's nest and yes, you can see my kitchen garbage can, but don't concentrate on that. Keep your eyes on the rolls and lumps and bumps that, hopefully, will be gone sooner rather than later.



The LeanMoms.com plan, Soft to Sculpted, is very easy to follow and, much to my surprise, I'm NOT hungry for hours after I eat. Yesterday I had cottage cheese with a cut up nectarine in it, and 1/2 cup of oatmeal for breakfast. That was at 7:30. I didn't eat again until after 1:00 p.m. because I was so full. That, like, NEVER happens. So the plan has definitely curved my desire to snack on stuff, either out of boredom or hunger, because now I don't really FEEL like shoving anything into my piehole when I'm bored.

So here you are, Day 4, this is what I look like now. You don't need to know my number, it's frightening enough that I'm showing you this much. But soon, there will be less of me, and more toned muscle to see. So stay tuned. And go try to find the dog, he's probably hiding in the woods behind a tree.

6/17/13 UPDATE: I was offered the opportunity to try the LeanMoms.com plan to get fit and get my butt back in gear on losing weight. What have I got to lose other than about 45 more unwanted pounds? It's healthy eating and regular exercising. A no-brainer, right? Yes, but sticking to a plan has never really been my strong point. So I'm jumping in and promising to stick to this 12 week program to get my body back into some form of 'healthy'. I'll post updates here on this page and maybe even a picture or two. I'll start tomorrow once I scare the children by making them take pics of me in just.....gulp, a sports bra and shorts. Those of you prone to motion sickness or who don't like the sight of bone-white flesh should look away!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2/22/13 UPDATE: So I'm down another pound. I'm not getting on the scale consistently because I hate the scale. With a passion. The scale ranks right up there with those asshats at the Westboro Baptist Church. But my clothes have been fitting looser, and that's what I've been basing everything on. I get on the scale when I feel a change in the way my pants fit. 7 lbs is okay I guess but it's been almost 2 months since I started back up and I want to see big changes. But yeah, that's only going to happen if I get my ass back to the gym regularly. So for all of you who are following my progress, there you have it. How are YOU doing in attaining your goals?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I've added this new page to begin (again) my journey towards being healthier, in better shape and yes, smaller in size. In October 2010 our local newspaper, The Shepherdstown Chronicle printed a story on my last weight loss effort. I had lost about 64 lbs and was really looking and feeling good. I started in April 2009 and I ran the Marine Corps Marathon in 2010. One of the biggest reasons I was able to lose so much weight in that time was because I was running. And I had lots of time to run because my husband was not working, so he had lots of time to run the kids here and there, and it freed me up to get my workouts in. He started a new job and I got lazy. Fast forward to present day Snarkfest and here I sit, on my ample buttocks just about 25 lbs shy of where I started back in 2009. I will post occasional pics and discuss my progress here. I've gone back to Myfitnesspal.com to track my food intake and my exercise and once again I will climb on the weight loss horse and ride it as far as I can.

  2. I'm so glad you posted this. I've been trying to find someone else to lose weight with. Down 19 pounds since the end of November. It's always motivating for me to see someone else doing the same.

  6. You've done so well! Keep it up. In my experience I always get where I want to be then a few years later I'm asking what the heck happened. Break the pattern. I wish you continued success!

  7. I think it's strange that looking back on this page, NO ONE has mentioned anything about how that pic that was taken in August of 2010 is me in front of a Christmas tree. A CHRISTMAS TREE in August. Anyone??

  8. Hey - Teri - Why are you standing in front of a Christmas in August? That's really strange! I can't believe no one has mentioned it yet.

    1. Hey Tracy, my next door neighbor likes to jump on the Christmas bandwagon early, so she decorated the house just for me to take that picture!!

      Actually, she still hadn't taken the tree down from the Christmas before. :)

I do read all comments and try to respond to them. Unless you're trying to get me to visit your website: Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags. Then you can go pound sand.
