  • i was told by my sister i was the "queen of unrealistic expectations" and that she just didnt want to see me disappointed. I told her that no thank you I would prefer to be hopeful and optimistic and that if I listened to her I would be more likely to quit. You can't point out to me how far I have to go and expect me to take it as a compliment. I'm the type of person that needs congratulations on how far they've come in order to keep going. Maybe I'm a compliment whore, and I like cuddles and hand holding but dayum give a girl some credit. I used to be a fantastic couch potato who couldn't even do five regular pushups. Now i can do 75 regular pushups. In just three months I have done things i never thought I could do. And thats what keeps me going. My accomplishments. They can all shove it.

      Too many cooks in the kitchen when it comes to my diet and weightloss. I've been working out really hard for 3 months and I've lost a lot of inches and about ten pounds but my diet wasn't under control. Now that I'm working on my diet and working out all I hear from my mother, my sister, my hairdresser: "Well don't get too excited, you still have thirty pounds to go before you can buy that romper and look good in it" or "Well get on it girl! That weight isn't going to lose itself" or "Don't go try on those size 6 jeans to see if they might fit, you're only going to disapppoint yourself"

      Seriously? Can I just get a "great job Maureen, if you keep going like you're going, the weight will come off in no time!" or a "Yeah go try on jeans I bet that will make you feel great about how far you've come!"

      Nope. Its like they want me to obsess about my weight and become anorexic. I look great now people. I can almost see my top abs. I have cut my side fat (the kind that pokes out when you wear a tight bra) almost down to nothing. Please just encourage me in a productive way.
      I will say it, Maureen - YOU ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB AND EVEN MORE SO CONSIDERING ALL THE SHITTY COMMENTS FROM THOSE IN YOIR LIFE WHO SHOULD BE YOUR BIGGEST FANS!!

      Geez, I hate that - frickin' family members who just think it is their place to put you in your place. And did you notice that the haters are all WOMEN?! I should really start a thread asking the guys of the MDA if they get the same crap in the same way and amount when they get healthy and hot. Harrumph.

              • Fucking pigs who can't fill their fucking quotas. That is the only reason I got pulled over and TICKETED for a expired inspection sticker in west Texas on the last day of the month. I hope he doesn't get his damn quota. Son of bitch father fucking mother stabber.

                • GOTD...

                  Actual programs here in Utah where:

                  1. A 7-11 in Provo, Utah will give a Slurpee to a kid if they read a book and tell a 7-11 employee about it.

                  *facepalm*

                  (To be generous, the kid could get a balloon instead. But which do you think they're going to pick?)

                  2. Dads go to their kid's elementary schools and read to them. They are rewarded with donuts. Really. "Donuts with Dad".

                    • i'd love to hear the explanation for ticketing an expired tag when it's still in the due month

                        Well, it depends on the tag. Here in AZ for example some expire on the last day of the month where as others expire on the 15th. If yours expires on the 15th you can get ticketed on the 16th. That said, usually the ticket is relatively small, until it is 30+ days expired in which case it jumps up to something obscene like $500+

                        • It was out of date, by over 6 months (unemployment shifts your priorities, as does out and out forgetting.) I'm not bitching that he pulled me over for it, I'm bitching that I got a $145 ticket for it when there was some jackass in front of me doing 50 in a 25.

                            6 months expired? Sorry buddy, but that is an easy, obvious ticket.

                            Speeding tickets people can fight. It is hard to fight something expired by 6 months. Also, the dept could be putting pressure on the cops to enforce the stickers. We get hit with that shit all the time... "Enforce seat belts this month because <insert blah General> is all about seat belts right now..."

                            • I know. I'm still pissed that he pulled me over for it. I actually would not have had as much an issue with him calling out my brake lights (discovered they were out yesterday, bought the bulbs, and was going to fix them tonight) as I do with the damn inspection sticker ticket. He had to have been straining in his rearview window to read that sticker.

                                Yeah, that is rather impressive. I can see him seeing your out brake lights, pulling you over for that and then seeing the sticker but seeing it in his rear-view is impressive.
