Posting before I change my mind...

I debated on whether or not to post this but I thought to myself, "Fuck it. Making this public as hell might give me the motivation I need to actually do this shit," so here we are.

I FINALLY made an appointment to get my hair cut. It’s been scheduled for March 22nd.


I also need to lose 10 lbs. My 30th birthday (June 21st, excuse me while I go hyperventilate) is coming up and I would like to be smaller by the time the party rolls around. It’s a pool party, WHAT UP! Yeah, I throw my own birthday parties, what’s it to you? You should too.

So by the time my appointment comes around, I hope to have lost 10 lbs by then. That gives me two months to lose 10 lbs. I think I can probably do it. I have done it before but that was with legal speed. Oh Phentermine, how I miss you...

I am not going to tout the awesomeness that is prescription weight loss medication because it is not the way to go. It surely works because it’s basically speed. Well, not basically, it is speed. For sure. But it only works for a short time and when the effects wear off, it’s all coming back unless you make a solid effort to keep it off which I never did. So here we are. I can’t afford Phentermine and it’s not the way to go any way so I am going to attempt to lose it the hard way. Speed free.

How am I going to lose it? Couldn’t tell you. I will figure something out that works for me but I won’t bore anyone on the details unless someone out there really wants to know. I have no plan of action as of today. Drinking less would be a good start (boooo...). That’s not to say that I am going to do that, it’s just the first thing that comes to mind.

And no worries, I am not going to turn this here blog into a health blog or a weight loss blog or anything like that. This will still continue to be about nothing, I assure you. It’s the Seinfeld of blogs only not smart at all and no audience. And I doubt I will even mention my progress on a regular basis.
My reasoning in posting something like this was if I tell the world, I will be more likely to do it so I don’t look like the lazy piece of shit that I am in front of the whole world. If I tell only myself in my head "I am going to lose weight," I can easily ignore that like I never said it to myself and go on about my life. But if I tell all three people that read this, I can’t say I never said it or go back on it as easily. Do you see?

However, if March 22nd comes and goes and I still haven’t told you all "Hey I lost 10 lbs/ 2 lbs/ gained 20 lbs..." if I haven’t mentioned the weight loss or anything like that by that day, one/ all of you out there needs to ask me publicly, "So how much weight have you lost Stacey, huh, Huh, HUH?!?" Post it on this blog. Send me an email. Post it to my Facebook or my Twitter. Call me out on it. You won’t be a dick. I am telling you to do this.

And what’s up, new years resolution to get a hair cut. March 22nd, bitch! I am knocking this shit out!

*There is not a chance in hell I will ever be this small again nor do I really want to be. I just want to be smaller. I was 19 in this picture. There is no way that my old ass will ever look like this again. I am nothing if not realistic. But I won’t lie and say that it’s not motivating.

You can call me out on this too. I am doing shakeology and ordering Chalean Extreme. So you ask me and I will ask you!
Good Luck!

What salon requires an appointment two months in advance? Come with me to Sport Clips tomorrow afternoon. Walk-ins are welcomed, and there's rarely a wait longer than 15 minutes or so.

Stacey Garrett said...

No no, Chris. I purposely made it two months in advance. That way I can afford both a cut and a color.

And I am good on Sport Clips...

Where'd you make your appt at? My hair girl is awesome and I get get you a referral discount. Dunno if the price will compare to whatever you're getting now though.

Also, I am about to start callanetics. $20 on ebay. It's not a crazy intense work out, anyone can do it, and after 10 hours of it (each workout is an hour) people see CRAZY results. Check them out here:

My friend Tiffany has done it and I can tell you uh, second hand, that it really worked for her.

Go sign up at and get the app. They sync well so anything you put on either shows up on both. Track what you eat each day and you'll see where you're going wrong. Helped me lose quite a bit! I used to be 173 and I lost almost 40 pounds dude. FORTY.

Forty fucking pounds, holy potatoes! I may have to look into that.

Thanks for the offer for your "hair girl" (ha) but I seriously doubt that anyone can be as awesome and as affordable as my "hair girl."
