Blogtasrophe! (Weigh-in)


In case you couldn’t hear my screams of anguish echoing over the blogosphere, something was very wrong with my blog today. I was unable to log-in to my blog client, couldn’t post all weekend, couldn’t post all day, it looked all nutty and plain-texty and well… to sum it up, my poor blog-baby was sick. And I was sad and angry and distraught, and it was all directed at the internet as a whole, hahaha. But! Thanks to my amazing brother/webmaster, it’s back and… better than ever? Well, that’s not true, because I’m still working through some issues. But hopefully it works for now.

So that at least explains why this post is coming so very, very late, and it’s coming with (hopeful) brevity because, you know, of that I promise that a real post with hilariousness and complete dog overload will be up bright & early tomorrow — in case you missed out on the tweets and Facebook photos showcasing the dogs’ pool adventures and my sister’s new puppy! Oh, and there may be pictures of me in a swimsuit too. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

So, without further adieu here is my weekend from Friday to Sunday, centered around a trip to Delaware to visit Steve for his birfday before coming back to celebrate my wonderful Papa, in pictures. Of food. Hehe.



Taco Taco Taco!











So there you have it! Lots of delicious food (and this wasn’t all of it, but them’s the highlights fo’ sho’.) Steve and I went to this cute little place called Beseme in Lewes, DE to celebrate his birthday dinner.

Happy Birfday!

It was really delicious, but the service was unfortunately super slow. Oh well, it is a beach town, I guess. Gotta go with the flow, haha. Then when I returned on Sunday, we celebrated Papa’s Day at a manly restaurant for my manly papa: Outback Steakhouse.


Happy (now belated) Father’s Day, Daddy! 🙂

Oh right, that pesky little thing that happens every Monday. Sigh, bring on the weigh-in. Okay, no drawing it out, here you go:

Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 194.0 lbs
This Weigh-in: 192.5 lbs!!
This Week’s Loss: -1.5 lbs
Total Loss-to-Date: 53.5 lbs.


C’mon now, that’s pretty impressive considering all the previously listed decadent weekend food, no? So at least this thus far thoroughly emotionally-and-physically exhausting Monday has been made better by a very nice little bit of weight loss. It’s the small victories, y’know? Hopefully I’m just a hop, skip, and a week or two away from… holy crap. I don’t even think I can say it out loud. It’s just so crazy to think that I could ever actually hit… the 180s!

AHHH! That’s almost like, an acceptable weight! Hahaha. Don’t worry folks, we can celebrate tomorrow, when I announce the winner of my Popchips giveaway! So make sure you get your final entries in toniiiiight!


  1. You’re awesome! Congrats!
    Sorry about the blog drama though. Sounds no fun.

    • Thaaaaanks friend! Thankfully it seems (at least temporarily) resolved…!

  2. You diet in style! Your food always looks so good! I’m jealous…

    • Well, let’s make sure to call a spade a spade. This weekend (as it seems, as with most weekends) is not really diet food… hahahaha

  3. Congrats on the weight loss girl! Boo to technical difficulties though. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

    • This was my first run-in with true blog technical difficulties, and I was NOT handling it well, hahahaha. I guess my ability to roll with the punches could use some work… hehe.

  4. Congrats on a loss! I lost this week too. Doesn’t it feel great? 🙂 You’re right around the corner from the 180’s…that’s so great!

    • It’s the best feeling EVAAARRRRR. Congrats to you too!!!

  5. Aw, I love keeping up with your blog. Thank god it started working again! hehehe and BABE! YOU LOOK GREAT!!!! im so happy for you <3

    • Thank you baobeiii. Next time we’re having a full reunion, kay? I miss you in my liiiife!

  6. I’m sorry, but was that deep fried avocado?!

    Congrats on the weight loss to date! You rawk!

    • Oh ho ho, it most certainly was. Well, pan-fried, not DEEP-fried. So you know, only terribly bad for you instead of GROTESQUELY bad for you, hahaha. And I did share with Steve… um… sort of. 😛

  7. Woo hooo!!! Congrats, girl!

  8. Congrats Gretchen!
    I have to admit to you that I was freaking out a little bit myself about your blog not functioning properly. I was missing my daily Gretchen hilarity and the catch up from the weekend!

    • Hahaha, well I’m not glad to hear that you were freaking out but I AM glad to hear that I’m something you look forward toooo! Hopefully the drama has subsided. 🙂

  9. Way to go!! I am impressed with your continuing results!! Keep up the great work!!

  10. OK, you beat Dan by 0.5lb. Congrats! Can’t wait to see 190 and then 180.

    • Haha, too bad I think he’ll very easily catch up with me. It’s so easy for boys to lose weight! Not fair 😛

  11. So scary! That’s why I’m so crazy about backing up my blog 🙂 Glad you’re back!

  12. SO proud of you! Especially with all the eating out from Delaware travels and Father’s day. YAY! Keep it up!
