VSG surgery Separation and Independence

 ? I weighed today but the number has long since fallen out of my head. I'm at about 134 lbs to date. I'm still technically obese. BMI charts can burn in hell!

Low carb has really been treating me well. My insatiable appetite for all things cake is now just a long distance love affair. I know that Cake is there and I can have her one day, but there is nothing I can do about it right now other than love her from afar. Well, we do have sexting and XXX Skype Night on Tuesdays and she can do some nasty things with sheet of fondant. Super Freak!! Anyway, the separation has been really hard on her. She'll call me blubbering and sobbing like some rose ceremony rejectee wailing at me "WHY DON'T YOU LOVE MEEEEEE?!?!?!" I just put my pimp hat on and brush it off. I love her but a real playa can't let their true feelings show. I still have a really special place in my heart for my second love, Cake. Crank calling my grandma and pretending to be Chinese is my first.

My mom is here and she seriously has some sort mind control over me. I swear its like I'm wearing an invisible gnomish mind control cap (5 points if you know where that came from) I've always been the kind of daughter that does what my mom wants no matter how tired I am or how much  I have to move my own schedule around. I do it out of obligation to the debt that I owe her for being such an incredible mom, so most of the time, I don't really mind.
Go to Braums at 10 o'clock pm? Fine.
Shop for curtains at 1 in the morning? Fine
Drive all over the Metroplex so she can buy pillows? Fine.
Drive all over the Metroplex to buy pillows and then go aaaall the way back to the first store that we were at where I told her to get the pillows in the first damn place? *sigh* Fine.
I've acquiesced to most of her requests, but this go around I've stood my ground and made some requests of my own.
"Mama, I need to go to the gym before we do anything at all tomorrow."
"You went yesterday, you don't wanna go too much."
"Well, I need to stick with it while I have the motivation and the drive to get it done, so I'm gonna go. I need to do this for me"
And you know what? The Earth didn't stop spinning, Mama didn't sprout serpentine locks, and I didn't stop being fabulous turn into stone. It was life as usual. It felt really good to find that fine line between being my Mama's child and being able to voice my needs.
Now if somebody can just tell me how to get out of doing her feet.


  1. LOLOLOL @ prank calling grandma! Classic!
    Aweee mom's is enjoying having her little waning woman around. Cherish the time, and put some extry time in on them feets! I cant wait to get home and see my moms. And yep she is a midnighteverythingisagowalmartshoppaholic as well!

  2. One of the things I miss the most about living in the Tulsa area is Braum's Ice Cream. Granted, it's been almost 20 years since I lived there, so I don't know if I've sensationalized it in my mind so much that the actual taste would pale by comparison, but that was one of my faves. Glad you were able to stand your ground without turning to stone. Rock-hard buns, yes. Buns made of actual rock? Not so much. ;-)

  3. Laugh!! Oh, you were a fantastic way to wake up this morning! Thanks for a hilarious start to the day. :)

  4. @JT Then you know EXACTLY how I feel. You got a Black mama, so you know how they are. lol

    @Kelshei, I used to miss Braum's, Whataburger, and Tex-Mex when I was in NYC.

    @Freejulie, you're welcome. I am to please. I aim to puh-leeze.

  5. Gnomish Mind Control Cap is an item from World of Warcraft.

  6. Ooooh, I could have a love affair with cake everyday too. I saw her this weekend but it was brief and we had to end it before things got really good.

    Glad you got some me, er, GYM time Moms definitely posses a certain power over us don't they? Um, can you send mom for a pedicure??? I have always said a good pedicure is worth EVERY penny!!

  7. Cake. As long as I don't see her, I don't need her! Way to hang tough!

  8. Mama's do have that power. I've had to stand my ground recently and in a situation that I never thought I could. I know how hard it is, but we have to do what's best for us in the long run. So glad you have the motivation to move. I know how hard it is to tell yourself what you need to do to be successful. It's even harder to do it. Love you girl, keep on rocking. I wanna be like you when I grow up!

  9. You know the saying for Lays potato chips "can't eat just one" well I can not just have "one" piece of cake. Just thinking about cake makes me weak in the knees.

    Anyhow... I look forward to your posts (almost) as much as cake, no offense ;) Keep fighting the good fight.

  10. @Digitarii- 5 points for you! You Horde or Alliance?

    @sheila I'm surprised at my dedication to going to the gym. Momdusa is a formidable adversary.

    @MM Do you think we're seeing the same girl?

    @Angel You are my sister from another mister and its like whatever I'm going through, you're right there behind me

    @Lisa How could I ever take offense to that?!? Comparing me to cake is the highest compliment ever. Its almost like being Cleopatra.


I love feedback more than cake. Make my day!
