Oh me Oh my! What a difference a year makes!

Last night, I decided to start categorizing the photos in my computer. The biggest album has to be my 20 day trip to Vietnam and Cambodia taken mid-July to August of last year (2011). Beautiful pictures! I loved that trip! However, I was shocked when looking at those pictures! Is that girl really me?

A blonde version of me, yes… it is… It’s funny because I don’t remember thinking I was fat or bigger then… I was comfortable in my skin. I knew I had gained weight, I wore spanks more often, I was a giant next to the Asians I met that summer, but never had I realised — until comparing pictures of that summer to some of this past summer — how I had kind of lost myself a tad…

My jaw just dropped… and ironically, I started remembering many moments of that summer where I did not feel as comfortable in my skin as I normally had… That summer is when I started looking into weight loss programs. I took me 6 months for me to finally meet Lise at Food Wise Weight Loss.

I started Lise’s program in March 2012 and this is what I looked like in May (yellow dress) while on another trip to Italy. What a difference… and yes, I was shopping for a designer dress to reward my weight loss… 40lbs!

I’ve been on the maintenance stage of the diet since August now and gained back a few pounds, but nothing big. I blame the Halloween chocolate! This picture is totally going to be motivation to eat well during the holidays… and for the rest of my life!

Well, this doesn’t come as a surprise! Even though we would like to think that our men knows everything about us, we know deep down that it’s just not true! Now science has proven it!

A new survey found that 40% of couple have fought over the fact that the guy can’t remember super important details. But let’s make this a tad more shocking… here is exactly what he doesn’t remember about you:

     ** 12% of men don’t remember their other half’s birthday

     ** 39% don’t remember your bra size

     **10% have no clue what you do for a job (Um…wow guys. Really?!)

     ** 54% don’t know your cell phone number (I can understand this one — no one memorizes phone numbers anymore)

Maybe it’s time to have a heart-to-heart with your guy to make sure he actually knows stuff about you. And if that fails? Make flashcards and quiz him on it grade school-style—with a sexy reward for getting the answers right! Then he will remember!!

Fess up: Do you really know the important details about your guy?

Thanks Cosmo Magazine

All of you know how much of a sap I am… I cry so easily! I always joke that I can cry at commercials or even the Price is Right! Ok… I might have once! 

There are two commercials that I always refer to when I talk about them making me cry… One was at Christmas, a pregnant lady talking to her mom, saying she will be ok alone for the holidays and gets a call on the other line — it’s her hubby…. he’s at the door! I am sad that I could not find it on youtube…

This is the second one, try not to choke up! Appropriately so, this one is about Dieppe and the war:

LOVE it!
