went wedding dress shopping with Kris last night. the girl oozes beauty I swear. she'd try on a dress, regardless of whether or not she liked it, and still looked stunning. it was fun.
brings me to another point. there were mirrors everywhere in the bridal shop and i happen to catch a glimpse of myself. hmmmm. i could probably stand to lose another 20-30lbs. don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to be down on myself - i'm really not - i just realize i need to work at it a little harder. i'm still on the south beach but i've been on a plateau for the last few weeks. as it seems, i'm not gaining or losing anything - despite the food i eat. i guess this is normal according to the few other people i know who've tried this diet. they tell me i should get back on a workout schedule and i should be fine. that makes me feel a little better.
my mom freaked me out this morning. ok first, i don't like diseases, particularly the kind that take surgery to fix/cure whatever. i mean, i'm not a germ freak or anything, i just don't like knowing that you can get a disease simply by having a variation in your gene(s) or chromosome(s). it freaks me out. for example, breast cancer. i read somewhere that it's a multifactoral inheritance thing -- any woman could just have it and not know it yet. that makes me shutter.
anyway, so my mom tells me that my dad has this throat thing similar to what my grandma had a couple of years ago. she had to have surgery to get rid of this thing. i wish i could remember the name of it. damn. anyhoo yea.......but i asked her if it's hereditary and she's like "yep". lame! it sucked having my grandma in the hospital and it would suck having my dad in the hospital and it would suck if any of my siblings had to go to the hospital --- uncool man, uncool.
