Wow that is pretty shocking, I think I ate more yesterday than the day before. Breakfast was my butter and olive oil sauteed veggies of peppers, onions, zucchini, eggplant and shredded skinless rotisserie chicken. Snack was melba toast and Laughing Cow full fat swiss cheese wedges (3) and a piece of chocolate with peanut butter. Dinner was a ribeye steak with Jack cheese (at the request of my daughter), sauteed mushrooms and onions. Later for a before bedtime snack, I had a rotisserie chicken thigh since I won't be able to have dark meat chicken starting today. Just don't want that chicken to go to waste, ya know? I was experiencing some hip pain this morning but I think it has more to do with stress. Well, my mom finally called me yesterday evening to wish me a happy birthday, sheesh Mom, 2 days late! Oh, well at least she finally called, right?

Okay, I took my injection this morning and it took forever!! I tried to give it to myself on my bum, but I started getting nervous. I have always given them to myself there but today I just couldn't. I ended up injecting in my thigh and I was still a little hesitant but I did it. I think Aunt Flo dropped by to visit my daughter yesterday so that means, she will be visiting me very soon. She and I seemed to have synchronized recently so that is how I am able to tell. Works for me because TOM is usually every 5 weeks for me and now its every 4 weeks like it should be.

Anyway, a few years ago I bought a mobile home and my father and his wife co-signed for me. When I bought my current house, I could not find a buyer that could pay up front so I had to do a rent to own basis. Everything was going great the first year, then she got married and she was deported to Mexico for being her illegally, yikes. Her husband has done his best to keep up with the payments but now we are 3 payments behind. Now there is only 2 years left on that loan but there is no way for me to come up with that money on my own. I pay my mortgage first before that mobile home. So this lender is calling everyday and is calling my father and his wife as well. Now I'm in a bind and don't know what to do. I don't want to take out another loan to pay for that balance because I will still have to make that payment. So I am up in the air. If anyone has any experience or some way to guide me in what to do or know someone that can help me, I would appreciate it tremendously. I was thinking of doing a commercial like Ms. Lili did but I don't know if that would work for this situation.

  • Biz, there it is, that thorn in my side, the nightmare that never ends, etc. Yesterday's menu was just as nummy. Sorry about the baloney and hot dog, just had to have it and now that is out of my system for a while.
  • Jen, thanks for the heads up on the soft cheeses, now I gotta figure out what to do with that 6 pack of cream cheese. Oh, maybe I can make those pumpkin double layer cheesecakes and freeze those!!
  • Becca, yes, I am going in the wrong direction but its due to my mini break that happened so early in the game. I'm back on track today, so we'll see what tomorrow's weigh in holds for me!! Did you get plenty of rain? We've only gotten a sprinkling and I'm sad about that. My poor palm trees look pathetic.

I feel your pain! I have a home that has been on the market for 1.5years. My husband and I relocated, bought a new home and thought that the old home would "sell anyday". Well, that was over a year ago and we have been making mortgage payments on TWO homes. It is so frustrating, but we don't have any other options but to keep paying & praying!

We are listing the new home with a different real estate agency today. Hopefully this will breathe new life into the listing.

Have you considered calling the mortgage company, explain your situation and then either sell/re-rent the home? With only 2 years left on the home, I'd hate for you to lose it! AMY is in the mortgage business but she has not updated her blog since 12/31. She is the only one in our community that I know about.

Good Luck. I know how tough it can be. Been there, doing that!

One more thing, Tngal80 is in the rental (real estate) business, she might can offer you some advice...

Putting out your problem will get people thinking Mary and I am sure someone will come up with an answer, but not me, don't know much.

First day back on VLCD! Good for you! WOW! You are not doing too bad for your planned interruption!!! So how much total did you gain for your break?

Renee said...

Congrats on being back on P2! Anxious to see your numbers drop...drop...dropping once again!

I hope your financial situation clears up soon as well. Real estate is a total bear right now and everyone is feeling the crunch of this horrific economy. Big hugs and good vibes to you.

Okay, you better be get back on P2 because I don't think I could take another day of all the deliciousness you were partaking of-you sound like such a good cook!

I too, have no advice but I'm glad you shared that with us-put it out there and "don't worry...about a thing...cuz every little thing is gonna be alright..." Bob Marley always has the right words!

I don't know how you do the injections yourself...what a mental challenge it goes against our human instinct to hurt ourselves! Ed and I enjoy torturing eachother and the days when it hurts it's fun to be able to take it out on him!

Welcome back to Protoland!

all that food and no weight gain? Awesome. Sorry 'bout the financial stress, I don't know if I can relate exactly but I can relate to financial stress, as we all can.

Sorry, I don't know enough to help either. I have friends in the business though so I can ask. But I'm sure they'll say the renters have defaulted and you can take it back over. Just will be a hassle to go through that process and then find new renters. The advice about talking to the lenders is a good one. Now with all the foreclosures going on they may do anything to work with you and not have another bad debt.
