An Update from Yesterday's Post...

After a veeeeeeeeery long conversation, Loser Ex-Boyfriend and I have decided to do a "break" on the whole friendship. Meaning that we won't be speaking to each other for a while. It's my own personal strike in life.

Although I am pleased to report that he was impressed by my weight loss. He even commented on how mignonne (cute) I look now. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I thank all of you who left me messages about how to react (or, rather, what I should do), but it's hard to explain things sometimes. Perhaps I may lose some "cred" among you for having talked to him. I can't quite explain what's going on within me, guys. It's not love, that's for sure. But something's going on.

Also: I HAVE A SCALE NOW. And it says that I have now lost 36.74 pounds/ 16,7 kilos!!! ZOMG!!! I am now 51.26 pounds/23.3 kilos away from surpassing Shakira in hotness ranking!

That means that I have lost nearly 4 kilos since I stepped on French soil. Pretty soon, I'll have to shop for new jeans in maybe a month or two.

Jean shopping. IN FRANCE.

o_O" That strikes absolute terror into my heart. More than seeing my Ex again.

Just eight months ago, I was stuck trying to find a pair of jeans that would fit me in Dijon; I FOUND NOTHING. Not even in the incredibly unfashionable old grannies store. I was on the verge of tears but instead called Mom so she could send me a care package with new jeans.

I now hope that things will be different when I do buy new jeans!

(I promise that I will be back to my comedy blogging schedule soon...I got an idea just today, too!)

  1. Be proud! That's amazing!! And doesn't it feel smugly wonderful to know you look that damn good when you see an ex? ;)

  2. good for you. post-breakup friendships are hard enough, but especially hard when your ex was an imbecile.

    You're too good for that.

    And kudos for the weight loss--you go girl!

  3. Congrats on the weight loss! :D I agree with Tricia. xD That's awesome.

  4. My dear French Bean,
    I am absolutely proud of you for realizing your worth and stopping communication with that ex boyfriend of yours. He really does not deserve your time or be honored with your presence because he lost his chance. And I am even more amazed at your weight loss, I knew you could do it just don't push it to extremes please. (don't disappear too quickly :p )

    talk to you soon my friend,
    Coffee Bean

  5. FB....((((hugs)))

    As someone who talked to her ex both yesterday and today and fully knows she is worth FAR more than his time/energy, my heart knows yours.

    Stopping the communication truly is the best thing.

    My fervent hope for you (and me) is that our path to happiness is short and sweet. And that we find something or someone to make us laugh hysterically at the losers we allowed into our hearts. ;)

    Your fellow fan!!

    AND WOO on the weight loss. You can be my inspiration!

    I miss reading your blog, I've been absent for a while. Glad I'm back. :0

  6. Thanks so much, everyone. Stopping communication is the only way I'll be able to move on; not speaking with him for nearly two months truly aided me to just focus on MY own life instead of wondering what was going on with his.

    What's better, I told him EXACTLY what I wanted to say, and he took it. He *knows* that he never deserved me to begin with and he proved it. On more than several occasions.

    Anyway, I'm off for my morning walk. Priorities first: Blog, then real life. ^.^


  7. Hope I didn't sound preachy Barb.

    Good for you for realizing your worth and the fact that you are soooooooooo much better than this dude.

    Congrats on the weight loss, too... just be healthy. And happy!

  8. Enjoying reading your inspiring posts! Keep it up!
