This one still blows my mind.

Bride's Brother, My Brother, Sis-in-Law, Me, my Hubby

So not pretty.  Not saying I'm all that now, but I KNOW I look better than I did less than a year ago.

Sorry was just perusing facebook and came across this and shuddered.  Hooray for progress!

Unofficial (late) weigh in

No picture, and this is a quicky, but on Sunday on my mom's scale (mine is still broken) I weighed 228.5.  So still (slowly) going down! huzzah!

coming up on sunday is a day to resist (yeah right) temptation.  We all have to work fri/sat/sun due to the Occupy _______ (your city here) protesters.  So they're planning a grilled cheese day on friday.  I haven't had grilled cheese in soooo long.  probably even years before surgery.  Sounds sooo good.  *sigh* but i'm pretty sure two pieces of bread won't feel so good.  Ah well.

That's all I've got for now.  I'm "working"  :)

Too young to fall apart!!

Argh!! I though things were supposed to get better as I lose weight!  Last night as I was undressing for bed I did something to my knee.  It still hurts this morning.  It's not "OMG ow!" crippling pain, but it's there every time I try to extend it fully, or move it in any direction other than straight front and back.  My walk to work this morning was, slower and a bit limpy.   Last night it felt almost "mushy" .. that's the first word that came to mind to describe it.   I'm pretty sure this isn't good, but I'm hoping it goes away.

You throw this on top of my right elbow pain that's been going on for maybe a month now, and the plantar fasciitis that still flares up, you'd think my body is conspiring to keep me from moving ever.  blah.

The thing that bugs me about my knee is that i haven't been doing anything fancy.  Just walking mostly, and then i'm undressing (maybe I twisted funny?) and boom!! ow!

Blah, just ranting and annoying is all I am. Sorry bout that.

Still here!

I'm still here, I promise!  been a little busy  lately,  busy at work, busy at home.  Dog walkies take up time in the evenings.  Which is a good thing :)

No weigh in this week. My scale seems to be broken.  Unless I magically lost 230lbs and now weigh 0.0lbs.   I  put a new battery in and everything and 0.0.  This makes me sad.  And also aware of how much of a scale whore I was being.  I actually felt a little be of anxiety the first couple of days of broken scale. *sigh*  I can't find anything in the manual or on the internet  as to why it's stuck on 0 .. or how to fix it.  Looks like a scale might be in the budget for soon.

No scale might not be a bad thing.  On Saturday we went to dinner at a NICE Italian place for my friends birthday.  It's a bit pricey, but OMG was it worth it.  And I splurged. I had a choclatini. it was yummy! And chicken caccatori which was sooooo good.  and a dessert coffee that was probably more alcohol than coffee.  :)  

Tomorrow is the hubby and my 3rd anniversay!!  Holy cow, we're both still alive! hehehe.

Oh and I ordered an iPh*ne 4S.  :D I shall have the precious.  I've wanted an iPh*ne since they came out but have always been on veriz*on family plan, which is too good of a deal to switch.  But now...  yay!!

But that's all I have for now. just a quick check in.  And a quick doggy pic!

Happy Birthday to me! a Weigh in, and a Doggy!

So, yesterday was my birthday.  32.   I feel like I'm getting old-ish.  But it's nice when people at work are saying they would have guessed closer to 22.  Hopefully they're not just being nice. I'd be awesome to have my Mom's genes.  She's 59 and looks late 40's/early 50's.

Weigh in day is going to stay on sunday's.  It's easy.  today was 230.2.  or 5 minutes later it was 231.3.  I'm going with the one I took a picture of.  And I stepped on the scale twice for each weight.   Ah well.  Either way is a  loss!

Also, on friday Chris and I brought home Charlie!  he's our new doggie.  We got him from one of the shelters in the area..ish.  It was about an hour drive. But when I saw his pic online, I was all "awwwwwwwww" and then i showed it to Chris and he was all "awwwwwwwww" .. So yay!  he's 9 months old and a Austrialian Shepherd mix.  He's so pretty.  I'm going to put a photo or two up, but there's more on my facebook if you want to friend me (NOT a desperate plea for friends ;)  )

That's enough for now I think
