Another Weight Loss Video Blog

It’s been awhile since I updated everyone, so here is the latest in the series of weight loss video blogs I’m calling “ARRRGH! An Abby Gabs Video Blog.” Believe me, it will all make sense eventually. Enjoy.

I’m linking up again with Yeah Write. From what I understand, it’s a little untraditional to submit a video blog for these linky parties. Oh well, I’m nothing if not a rebel. Make sure you stop by later in the week to vote for your 3 favorite blogs that are posted! (I won’t judge you if you don’t pick Abby Gabs. Much.)

**EDIT** Turns out, the song I had in my head had nothing to do with being frustrated. In fact, Offspring was singing about keeping things separated. What can I say? I think my lyrics are better.

    Okay, firstly, isn’t yeah write a little more than a linky party? If I could figure out how to make the yeah write awesomeness work without the linky stigma, believe you me, I would.

    Secondly, I love you.

      It totally is! But I wasn’t sure how else to describe it. What phrase would you use instead? And thanks–the feelings are mutual.

    Ahhh Abby you rock!
    You and Mama Kat are my vlog heroes – the only ones I ever watch.

    BTW, I am with you on scales frustration… but they tell me that MUSCLE weighs more than FAT so i am holding onto that, after all that work i would expect by darn scales to budge even one little number!!!!

      Thank you, m’dear!! I have WAY too much fun with video blogs. Apparently, I know no shame. One day I’ll cross that line, though…I’m guessing people will let me know when it happens because I have no filter. LOL 🙂

    You are GOOD ABBY! VERY GOOD ABBY! Not bad, not bad. You feel stronger and that is amazing. I suggest you trash the scale and go by how you feel and how your clothes fit. (I did that years ago and have had a much better relationship with weight ever since…just a thought.)

    I am new to your blog and your VLog and just have to tell you that I think you are amazing.

    1. Abby

      Wow, thank you Jennifer! I’m always excited by new readers! 🙂 I hope you’ll keep coming back for more. I certainly have had my struggles with the scale over the years. I did try not weighing myself for awhile but wound up being complacent with my exercise after awhile. I figured, so long as I was working out, I must be losing weight, right? Not so much. LOL

    If I could do a vlog and have it turn out as interesting and funny and awesome as yours, I totally would. Because this is one of the best vlogs I’ve ever watched. No lie. I want to stalk you on YouTube now. And I will.

    Anyway, sorry the scale is frustrating this week, but still, it sounds like you’re doing awesome, so don’t beat yourself up too much. You’re doing WAY MORE than me in my recliner. I’ll tell you that now. Way to go!

      Aw, I’m blushin’ over here, Katie! Thanks for the kind words. 🙂 It took me awhile to find a formula that works for the video blogs, and I seem to have found my groove, now. I hope you will find me on YouTube and watch all the silly vids I’ve posted over the last year! 🙂

      I’m learning quickly that I have to learn to make a positive spin on everything dealing with weight loss, otherwise I get bogged down by the negative. Yes, it’s hard. Yes, the scale doesn’t always cooperate. But in the long run, I’m doing this for my health and my future–what could be more important than that?? 🙂

    UMmmm so I watched the whole thing and the separated part is cracking me up. Feeling stronger is healthy. The numbers don’t matter as much as that does. And don’t beat yourself up over the one bad day. We got to live and learn and live the next day too. Yay you!

    1. Abby

      ME too, Jamie—I was so convinced I knew the lyrics of that song. I cackled when my college roomie pointed out I was wrong all along. LOL

    Here’s what I say – Throw your scale away. If you are working out, running, feeling stronger and your pants are falling off, you are doing AWESOME! Drink lots of water and know you are taking good care of yourself and your body will thank you for it. I’ve been through this so much myself. I hate scales. My son just broke ours and I’m kind of glad 🙂 Great post, you are doing great!

    Abby, I big fluffy heart you! Your honesty, your frankness, and your humor make your blog/vlog awesome! By the way, pinned that last clip too, gotta eat that skinny person too!

    1. Abby

      YAY!!! I big fluffy heart you, too! :0) My husband describes me best when he tells people “Abby has never met a stranger.” I ain’t skerred to share my stuff. LOL. So glad you enjoyed the vlog!

    I frickin’ LURVE your face and eye rolling action! You crack me up, Abby! I’m “on a break” from quality time with the wine aisle at my Publix too. We can do it together!

    1. Abby

      I’m so glad you feel that way, because I have to tell you—the feelings are totally mutual. I’m totally rocking “Funky Town” right now. I swear. :0)
