tumblr takes Europe?! COME WITH US (Alisa & me)!
Oh, also, if I go to Greece, I dunno if I’m coming back either heh
Alisa, ultimate goal weight trip? You (the boy), me, the rest of tumblr? Sounds fantasssstic…. :-D
So I got this questions:
Hello I love your blog. I want to try all your recipes soon! Let me tell you a quickie story about myself.. before highschool I was never over 100 lbs..this was in 2006. Now I am 120 lbs, my heaviest was 130. I LOVE food and can’t seem to control what I eat. I will never want to give up hot cheetos, and I love eating the fat off of meat, and I hate to excercise..it doesn’t make me feel good at all. I would like to make more healthy stuff though but I don’t have the funds cuz I find healthier is more expensive. SO I buy great value stuff and lotsa top ramen or those skillet dinners. I make chicken a lot and rice(spanish rice, chipotle rice), for breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, has browns), sometimes that special K haha omg so as you can see I need major advice. I was trying to see how to message you privately but oh well haha… tell me what you think and any advice will help :)
And I have a lot to say about this, so here I go.
This is. The. Best. Idea. Ever.
You forgot about the pumpkin pancakes. :-)
Bestest. vlogs. ever.
this made me laugh so hard I almost peed. Thanks a lot. :-P hahahaha
Additionally, has anyone ever told you that you and your brother kinda look like David Arquette (circa Never Been Kissed)?
A smoothie probably would help, but that’s one more thing for me to make in the morning hahaha.
Yeah, I have a lot of problems swallowing pills, I have a pretty sensitive gag reflex and the smell of the multi-vitamin tends to get to me too. I can’t hide it in my food though cause I literally have to chew everything (even ice cream & frozen yogurt) My brain is ridiculous.
I know a lot of people use lemon juice, but I, personally, put the seed back in and put it in a baggy. The seed helps it from turning brown so fast. The do still get a little brown, but mainly just a little on the top that you can easily scoop out.
Also, even though I’m only having an 1/8 I usually go through 1/2 an avocado a day because of me, Husband, mom & dad all eating it. hahahaha
hyperbolicdiet asked: Psssst Sarah, I haz a question.
My mom just bought some frozen yogurt from Edy's. It looks pretty delicious. However the label says that it contains "corn syrup" but it doesn't say that it is "High Fructose Corn Syrup". Is there a major difference? If so how? Also if a train is traveling from station A at a rate of 50mph and another train is leaving from station B at 63mph and the total distance is 105 miles, at what point will the two trains meet? Please phrase your answer in the form of a question.
- Matt :D
Psssssst Matt, I have an answer. For the corn syrup question, screw the trains. they can just wait for each other!
Anyway, corn syrup is different then high fructose corn syrup in that high fructose corn syrup has, well, more fructose, and hfcs are therefore much sweeter. It is nearly impossible to avoid things that have corn syrup (not HFCs), so while I alway say stay way from high fructose corn syrup, for this (corn syrup) I would say use in moderation only.
So. HFCs = no, never. Corn Syrup = lite use, in moderation only.
Basically, the more whole foods/real food in your diet the better. So ingredient wise, your food should have words that you can read & that can be found in nature (there isn’t a corn syrup plant, so it’s a processed food, so just be careful)
Ugh, so rambley, sorry :-/
crossingtheasymptote-deactivate asked: Sorry to be a bother again, but how come hfc's are bad for you? and what are they?
I'm reallllly curious ahaha
HFCs = High Fructose Corn Syrup. Which means Corn Syrup with more fructose then regular corn syrup.
The reason it’s bad. It’s synthetic. Your body can’t process it. Which means it just sticks around. There is a lot of scientific debate about HFCs and if they are bad for you or not. The ones who say it’s fine for you, do admit that it’s a LOT sweeter then sugar, which makes your body crave it and makes you want to eat more, thus making you gain more weight.
Companies started using HFCs over sugar when the price on sugar was raised (I don’t remember exactly what happened there) and they could use high fructose corn syrup for a fraction of the price. And we all know they are all about the bottom line. Also, to have a product that causes an addiction is nice for them too *coughBASTARDScough*
However, I have a more personal story about it. When I gave up HFCs, I lost 5 lbs. I didn’t do ANYTHING else, just stopped eating food with hfcs. That’s it. 5 lbs and 1 inch off the biggest part of my stomach. To me, that’s proof, but some people are still skeptical.
The thing is, is no matter how you look at it, it’s obviously easier for your body to process real foods (even sugar) then something that is a chemical.
As trackmyfit said, HFCs are the cancer of the food world. And I LOVE that statement. They are everywhere and in WAY too many things, you literally have to read EVERY label.
Edit: Husband wants to change it to the STD of the food world, so whatever floats your boat :-P
So, I hope this answered your question :-)
First, SOOO sorry to be flooding your guys dash!
Second, @shrink-wrap, @thebetterme, @leanmeanlauren, @200kin2011, @effthisdiet, @1shyfox, @chocolatecocoaaddict, @thehealthexperiment, @mycollectionofskins, @thefatass, @smarthealth, @my-fat-self

YES! Totally talking about Earth Wind & Fire! Mmmmm
AWW!!! Aren’t you a sweetheart! I was beyond excited, so I guess I’m a good writer? Hahaha (my dads a writer, so I hope something rubbed off on me….)
Interesting…you must be one of those glass is half full types of people, cause it seems like those were mostly fails…hahaha. :-P but yeah, I did a half successful August!

Yessssss I <3 progress.
I KNOW RIGHT?! Stupid house. LUCKILY I have an awesome daddy & hubby who went and got me soup & crackers & lemon-lime soda (all organic/all-natural)
I love you so.
YES! BEE’S KNEE! Ack I freakin love that saying! And now love you more….IS THAT POSSIBLE?!
Hahaha! Yeah, that’s part of why Husband & I joke about having little ewok babies. I am a giant and he is a mega giant. Also, aw shucks. no creepy, you’re the bestest.
Need to figure out logistics then. There is a wall in front of the stove, so could only shoot video from the side, which would be hard to show certain things…
Is it weird to say I love you? I mean you have a girlfriend and I’m married… so it’s obviously platonic. Whatever, i love you. you’re a complete bad ass.
So i read this out loud to my dad & Husband, you made them both laugh. This is awesome. You’re fantastic. And I AM TOTALLY grateful to you! You got this WHOLE thing rolling when I totally never even though I would raise $150! I am ETERNALLY grateful to you. Not above & beyond, just the truth. I actually think the whole situation is a little comical. But thank you, seriously.
AW! Thank you! To each his own? I dunno, everyone is allowed their own opinions and to be honest there are A LOT of people who don’t like me. So, до свидания.
OH! AND THANK YOU EVERYONE who gave me such an amazing “round of applause” so to speak about today’s weigh in. It was super heartwarming. <3 you all SO much!
OK! I promise I will stop flooding the hell out of all of your dashes now!

Exxxxxceeeeellllllent! My evil plan to make you all think I’m adorable is working perfectly! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Sophie IS adorable. Just for that, Sophie picture! BWahahaha cute face! Also, art projects!
The pizza is SO easy! Once you get the hand of it, you can totally knock the pizza out in like 10 minutes!
YESSSS!!!! Yes to it all!!
Haha why? You totally deserve to be there!
Perfect! Cause I love you too!
Yeah, my husband is not American. Hahaha, even though his accent has toned down a little some people still give me looks when he talks, like they can’t understand him, which is ridiculous. Also, he still does very Scottish/British things.
He’s from a really small town in England, that’s on the border of Scotland, which is why I feel like he’s more Scottish some days.
YES! I have actually done that quite a few times…it’s really the spice combination & baking, rather then frying that I’m advocating.
YAY! I’m so excited! I love people making my food & experimenting with food & cooking…well, actually I love almost everything associated with food!
Thank you! The navy looked amazing against my sister’s pale skin, it’s part of why I picked the color. That and it was a winter wedding and the blue looked AHmazing.
And feel free to ask anything! Did you know the average cost for a wedding is $20,000? I did mine for $5,000….so I definitely know some tips haha
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh man, you’re too funny! I “lol” over this each time I read it. But thank you. Goal 1 is to get back to the weight I was there. Still have 40 lbs to go :-/
Aw shucks! Thanks you guys!
Hahahaha way to go babe. And thanks :-D
Thanks, David’s Bridal haha
No, it’s not cause you’re blond, I really don’t think you can comment on an actual blog post….and thanks :-D
Ok, as long as you know you need to eat 1200 calories a day, we’re good, no hand smacks necessary. But I do understand the down motivation. This month has been really hard in the motivational department, especially with being sick & periods from hell haha
Definitely Healthy & Happy now. So thank you. :-)
Whats the point of being upset? It actually just messes with your weight loss more. So I’m really happy I didn’t gain, so I’m still going in the right direction.
Thank you, encouragement is awesome! Tough week…tough couple of weeks….tough month hahaha, so as long as it’s not a gain, Sarah is super happy :-P
I PROMISE to NEVER go this long before answering questions again! Phew! *wipes brow*
Sometimes….but basically I think that everyone deserves to know that their posts have been read…buuuuuut thank you!
