Carly's Copycat

Hello everyone--

My real name is Cynthia but at a restaurant the other night, I overheard a hostess telling what turned out to be my server, "You go wait on "fattypatty" over there and I'll catch the next customer"....

Well to be perfectly honest I was devastated yet the experience forced me to come to terms on the reality of my obesity and to finally make a wholehearted effort to finally win this war against overeating...

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for sympathy, just a little encouragement and help staying accountable as I have finally hit rock bottom and will be copying (in as much as I can) Carly's magnificent transformation in body, mind and spirit...


And Carly I sure hope you don't mind as you truly an inspiration and my hero


So, without any further adieu, here are my stats on this gorgeous July 1st in beautiful, sunny Florida:

Weight: 233.5
Height: 5'3"
Age: 52
Diabetes: Yes, Type 2: Blood Glucose reading this morning at 8am was
135
Blood Pressure: 151/102 (Highest I have EVER had and very disturbing)


Also, went to the store and bought a rebounder (mini trampoline) and will use that in conjunction with taking water aerobics 3x a week and playing tennis (doubles) 3x a week...


FYI: all my life I weighed around 105-110 lbs. but because of a near fatal car accident that left me disfigured, depressed and unable to exercise for well over a year, I've ballooned to over 230 pounds and now struggle with impaired mobility, joint pain and a mild case of depression...



Signed,
FattyPatty

Nice to meet you Cynthia! I think that's more lovely name than FattyPatty! You might have to change it to SkinnyMinny soon!
I think I would have written something on the bill like, "zero tip for you and i will be emailing your manager, signed FattyPatty". Nobody should be calling anyone names! I'm so sorry some people are jerks!

Hi Cynthia!

Carly *is* awesome, and what a tribute to her hard work and success your journal title is!

I just wanted to say that I'm horrified by that hostess' comment, and if it were me, I would notify the manager/owner. That is completely unprofessional even if you had not overheard.

Best of luck on your journey! JUDDD is the only diet that has ever worked for me long term! I'm not at goal yet, but so happy about how far I've come.

Thanks everyone for the kind words and warm welcome


And yes I strongly considered going to management and complaining about the "fattypatty" comment but in the end decided I just wanted to go home...


Today is Wednesday the 2nd and according to the diet, it's a DD for me so I will have to keep my caloric intake down to below 500...

Have a great day everyone and I'll check in after tennis this am with a progress report...


FP

Sometimes a slight nudge is all we need. The server was WRONG to say that. Plain and simple. You will see great success with JUDDD it is a great plan! Simple and you eat whatever you want either days....you just count it!

Just got home from tennis...had a great time...won the first set 7-5 and lost the second 6-4 but decided to not play a 3rd because of the brutal heat.


Haven't had a thing to eat all day...and it's now 12:30pm and I'm fine...man if DD's are going to be this easy for me, then wooohoooo I think I can do this...


Weighed this morning and the scale didn't move at all...still 233.5 but I checked my BP as tennis and it's come down a lot since yesterday: 134/84

Will check my Blood Sugar later tonight...

If the scale hasn't moved, that means no bounce after your UD yesterday. That's terrific!

As a restaurant manager I would want to know that happened. We would be mortified. People make comments without taking into account how mean they are.

The hostess may deny saying that (and the server may or may not tell the truth) but at least she'll know she was caught being mean and dumb.

Hey FP! I'm honored that you want to be my copy cat!
