Worst day EVER! STUPID THIEVES!!!!!!

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Yesterday I was going over to my friend Cathees house and stopped on the way for a soda..but my debit card kept getting rejected. After four times, I didnt have any cash so I apologized and went over by the slot machines to call my bank and see what was the dealio.

They transferred me to the fraud department and said that there has been suspicious activity on my account. Apparently someone withdrew $300, then $200 dollars Monday in Receda CA. Then yesterday they did a inquiry, saw I was -250 or so and withdrew ANOTHER 300!

I only had 260 in my account. But it was 260 I had been saving since AUGUST! Im a server and lately, I am scraping by, literally. Have to work extra just to pay bills, not affording groceries, gas nothing.

I have been saving my leftover ones every night in a cherry jar above my fridge. I finally saved 300 dollars since august. I had spent forty on small things for people for christmas...and the rest is just....gone.

Who would do such a thing? The bank is going to investigate and hopefully have my money back by the end of December, but Christmas is ruined as far as my buying people gifts.

I am so lucky to have family and friends who understand. For me, Christmas shopping is my favorite thing of the year. I LOVE taking my time and finding just the right gift for each person on my list, I love to shop but never do it for myself. It is so nice to feel able to spend a bit and shop around for other people, and taking that away from me is such a crappy thing. I hope that makes sense.

I just dont get it...WHY?!

I swear when it seems things cant get worse...boy howdy they can.

    Thats horrible. There has been a lot of fraud like this going on. The scammers put in an account number and deduct a small amount like .01 and if the transaction goes throught the deduct as much as possible. I hope everything worked out !

    That sucks!! Sorry that happened.. But Im confused.. How is someone able to withdraw money out of your account if you are in possession of your debit card?? Sounds like some identity theft is going on too.. You may want to alert the authorities and credit bureaus too.. emoticon

    Ugh that is awful. I can't imagine how scary that would be to have someone take everything in a bank account and more. I hope that your bank is able to work things out and reimburse you quickly.

    I am so sorry about that. I don't really know what it's like but I do know what it's like to be broke around Christmas. Keep your chin up and hopefully your bank will resolve it.

Im proud of myself today.

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Last night I went a lil over in calories, but for the week I am way evened out, averaging only 1550 a day. It is usually pretty easy cause I cook at home every night and make stuff that is super low cal so even if I want thirds, I can.

Today the "boys" (some of our guy friends) came over and even though I made soup, Cody decided we should go get pizza. I said I didnt want to go but he wanted me to, even just for a salad. I didnt mind, I miss my friends and have been kinda introverted the past few weeks.

But it was so HARD! We had chicago stuffed pizza and breadsticks and chicken fingers..OMG. I wanted some soo bad. I had an antipasto salad that was pretty good, and filling...but man i wanted some of that cheesy stuffed pizza so bad. :(

I had a NIBBLE of a chicken finger, and of a breadstick. I was going to take a nibble of codys pizza, but then it had sausage on it and im allergic to fennel so NM. Which was good. In my head I kept thinking, it wouldnt hurt to just have a piece, just one piece...blah blah. BUT NO! I know it seems in the short run I can and it will be fine but I am just setting myself up for failure and to keep cheating and going over!!

So I said NO. And I was really proud of myself when we left. I came home, and now I can have some leftover soup or mexican chicken with rice, and be happy.

So yeah...usually it is not that bad and I dont have a hard time being good...but damn, today was a challenge. emoticon

You should be VERY proud of yourself. I'd have never made it through that as all of those foods are my weaknesses. GREAT JOB!!!!!

I have been having weird dreams about food the past two! I keep dreaming I have nothing to eat but crap and I am just going over and over my calories and I dont want frickin weird.

I mean, they arent just food dreams, they come in in some other dream. But I feel guilty in my dreams, even when in reality I havent gone over!

I guess it makes sense, since I can never have sexy dreams cause I always leave the scenario rto shave my legs or something. Maybe I am too proper for my own good about some stuff. emoticon

    thats so funny because a couple nights ago I dreamed I was eating a big plate of meat and potatoes and so many sweets and just gorging myself, and I kept wanting to stop and I couldn't. so in my dream I was just wailing about how I was going to gain back what little weight I've lost, doing that.

then I woke up and felt relieved.

Well, I am not doing atkins anymore. I am tired of feeling like I have nothing to eat, nothing to snack on and feeling hungry all the time. I only eat salads and chicken when im on it, and I have to limit my veggies, because so many are high boyfriend is in sports and knows how to eat healthy and I would rather feel like that. I would rather do brown rice and veggies, fruits and stuff than just salad and eggs. :D

I dont know, it just isnt for me anymore.

God I look so horrible in my Thanksgiving pics...more the reason I want to be motivated!!!!

:( I pigged otu yesterday...not TERRIBLY..but I did have about three pieces of the pumpkin pie cheesecake I made..and I made oreo truffles...THEY WERE AWESOME!!! >.> Yeah I grubbed.

I feel much better that I made this decision on the way to lose the weight, and Cody just gave me a big kiss when I told him, he was really worried about me on the atkins.

So yeah wish me luck!

    The Atkins Diet is one of those .....instant gratification diets for people who want to see almost immediate results. I can't see it as being healthy. I did South Beach and lost [and regained] the same 56 pounds three times. Three times. As soon as you reintroduce carbs back in your life it's like sensory overload and you crave them like a mad woman.

Bottom line can eat anything with moderation. Think portion control. Think about nixing anything that's processed with trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils. Drink lots of water and not soda [not even diet]. And be sure to move, because our bodies are engineered to move on a regular basis. I've lost forty pounds. It's been slow. But the weight has stayed off and I'm working on losing another twenty. Log all of your foods here. Make sure your meals are balanced, remember portion control, and the weight will come off and stay off. Promise!

    I think you've made a very wise decision to change your eating patterns. I've not done Atkins, but my daughter did for quite a few months. I really felt like it was not as healthy as just eating sensibly as you are planning to do!

Good luck on your new eating pattern and in reaching your goals!
