Quick Update

Just a quick update, since I'm about the head out for lunch, shopping, and movie with a friend. Have y'all seen Austenland? It's adorable. In fact, it's so cute, I'm going to see it again. If you're a Pride and Prejudice fan, it's kind of a must.

My weight is still hovering around 186.2. I finally decided to switch to biweekly weigh-ins since the weight loss is slower and/or more sporadic the closer I get to goal. These 5lbs to my next mini goal are taking FOREVER. But I'm trying not to stress about it, because then I just get stuck or say "screw it, I'm having chips". Things around here are busy enough without that nonsense. Even if the scale isn't moving, my clothes are bigger all the time. It's probably time to buy new bras and underwear - again. And people who haven't seen me in even just a few weeks, exclaim about how much smaller I look. So maybe things are just shifting around, even if the number isn't technically dropping? But man, would I like to be down 100lbs by the end of the month.

Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary. We're meeting for lunch at Maggiano's Little Italy. Yes, Italian, that's what this diet needs. Oh well, it's not like I can eat all that much anyway.

Trying to catch up on all your blogs, and hoping you're all doing well. Even if I'm not blogging, or behind on your posts, I still think about you guys and hope you're happy and successful.

Thursday Weigh-In and My Least Favorite Photo

Starting weight: 281 lbs
Surgery day: 261 lbs

Thursday's weight: 186.2

-  1 lb loss

-74.8 lb loss since surgery
-94.8 lb loss overall

I do weigh in Thursday mornings, but I'm finding I'm too busy on Thursdays to actually post it. Good thing I'm the only one who cares about that.

This photo has been tormenting me on facebook for a year. My best friend posted it and even tagged me in it, because it's a picture of her oldest friend holding her new baby daughter. So I get it, but man, do those rolls kill me.

Last weekend, we celebrated her daughter's first birthday and I celebrate having fewer rolls to hate.
This is me yesterday, newly brunette and feeling sassy about it.
