Ok so. I have just wasted an entire day of my life. Really. It was sad when I first realized it, but then it dawned on me that I have learned something that I could pass onto the younger generation. I then felt better about myself.
I just watched, like, 6 hours of Say Yes to the Dress. I love that show! So much has changed since I was married over 22yrs ago that I’m enthralled with this show. But in this one sitting, it has taught me more things than I could have imagined. Here is the Top Ten in No Particular Order (because I’ve had too much wine to care) (ok wait, 10 is too many right now, I can’t commit to that type of commitment while I’m already committed to my glass of wine. I am not a cheater):
1 - WTF are you thinking bringing 80…ok, I’m exaggerating…60…ok, ok, I tend to stretch the truth…20…crap…alright!…10 broads with you to pick out ONE dress for YOURSELF?? Are you a fucking idiot?! Because that’s all I can think when I see the peeps you chose to accompany you. On national TV. F***! You’re an idiot!
2 - Seriously. You seriously tore out a magazine page? You look nothing like the model and you think you’ll look like her in that dress? And then you cry when you try on that dress and you don’t look like the ad? It’s a f***ing advertisement!! OMG, see the last two sentences of #1 above.
3 - Did you really just bring a hot dog to a taco bar??!?! Leave that f***tard at home! There is NO reason in f*** to bring a dude. And am I the only one that notices the ‘religous’ chicks are marrying the most bossy dudes around? You have a voice too, God gave it to you. Don’t let Man suppress it. F-word (cuz it’s just not proper to cuss after you’ve just said God), you’re an idiot.
4 - The sales person knows their shit. Stop being a f***ng idiot.
But I digress – this is not the purpose of this post. This is supposed to be the beginning of:
Operation Pink Drink – My Not So Secret Secret
Quicksilver and I have decided to do Plexus. I had never heard of it before and after doing some research, thought it might be right up our alley. And then decided to blog our progress because while we have several of the same habits, we are very different people. Would we have the same results?
So, let’s get the boring shit over, shall we?
**Me – naturally pessimistic, skeptical and untrusting. There’s always an ulterior motive, right? I eat pretty healthy most of the time – I’d say 80/20. I’m really into whole30 right now and feel amazing while I’m 100/100 with it, but it’s just not realistic with my lifestyle and hobbies. So, I try to do it as much as possible. I have some heart issues & endometriosis. Uhhh…those are the major health issues. We’ll see if the smaller ones come into play.
**Quicksilver – optimistic person in the truest form. He’s way more active than me too. Pretty healthy dude.
**We are both in our early 40’s, drinkers, work a lot of hours.
What is Plexus? These are some direct quotes from their website:
- Plexus Slim is the most-natural way to lose weight and inches by burning fat, not muscle. Slim also helps keep blood sugar, cholesterol and lipids at healthy levels.
- 95% of all diets and weight loss programs fail.
- 8 out of 10 Americans over the age of 25 are overweight.
- 174 million Americans are overweight or obese.
- The worldwide number is expected to double by 2030.
- 25.8 million children and adults in the United States
(8.3% of the population) have diabetes.

- Finally there is a healthy solution to help you lose weight. The synergistic effect of Plexus Slim and Accelerator taken together can help you lose more weight faster than you ever thought possible. Experience quick re-sults and keep the weight off.
Blah blah blah, right? You can click on my link here www.plexusslim.com/BrandieO to read more or just google the shit.
I’ve had some friends try this and they all say it works. It’s more than just a weight loss system but I’ll get more into that later if it comes up. Most of you are here to see pounds drop so that’s what I’m going to focus on.
So, there it is.
Once I start seeing some changes, I’ll post pictures, but right now I’m not about go down Embarrassing Lane. But I will give you some numbers:
Me – 5’5″ 148lbs Waist measured just under my bellybutton 34in Size 28/29 jeans (waist)
Quicksilver – 6’0″ 44in waist Size 38 jeans and he’s about to go up since this new job
