How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Vacation is awesome!

First things first ... today, my weigh in: 181! That's a loss of 2 pounds last week, and a total loss of 105 pounds! Yay!

I love my BodyBugg! It really makes me want to keep moving. I love seeing the "Calories Burned" number move higher and higher :) Talk about motivation. It has helped so much in my re-kick-start!

As I'm sure you all remember, I went to see Duran Duran at Winstar Casino in Oklahoma with my BFF Debora on Friday night. It. Was. INCREDIBLE! They are so good in concert, the fans are super fun and the venue was actually pretty cool. We had VIP seats so we were pretty close to the front anyway, but then after the concert started, just about everyone in those seats sorta rushed the stage. We finally realized that this is what happens at Winstar so we joined the crowd! I inched my way up until I was so close to the stage I could just about touch it. We danced and sang and screamed and clapped, my voice was just about gone and we had a fantastic time!

Here are a few pictures! I didn't know we were allowed to take actual cameras into the show, so all I had was my phone. These aren't the best quality, but I still love them :)

So far today, my first day of vacation, I slept in (a little bit), played around on the computer, am working on cleaning the kitchen, doing some laundry, then I decided to take a ride on my bike. My local Smoothie King isn't too far away so I hopped on my bike and rode up there to have a smoothie. I've become friends with a couple of the girls who work there, so they didn't mind that I hung out and chatted while I had my smoothie. After I was done, I hopped back on my bike and rode home. I probably rode about 4 miles total, not terribly far, but with the wind today the ride home was pretty strenuous.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and will have a great week. I am off to do more dishes and more laundry!
