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.

Scrambled Brains

I can't believe BOOBs is in 2 days. I still feel like I have a billion things to do before then - both at work and at home!

We've got a pretty big website update scheduled for Monday the 3rd which means I have to have everything done before I leave at noon on Thursday. I'm getting close to being done and I'm sure I'll make my deadline, I just don't like having to rush.

I haven't even started packing yet! But I usually don't until the day before. And since I'm not a clothes horse like a lot of you I won't be bringing 14 bags with every single piece of clothing I own. Hee hee :) Although, I have had a few assurances from the likes of Beth, Dawnya and Krystal that they will make sure I don't leave the hotel looking like enemy #1 on the fashion police's most wanted list.

Tonight I am going to my monthly Knitting Guild meeting. It is our first meeting of the season and I have to say that I'm not 100% thrilled to be going. The group is quite stagnant and if it wasn't for the fact that my BFF Debora is going to be there, I probably would skip it all together.

Last night I went to yoga, I've graduated to the Foundations level. No more Raw Beginner for me - whooooopie!!!!! It was pretty good and I think it is the place for me to be right now. I'm not quite there yet with my confidence and stamina for All Levels, but I've definitely outgrown Beginner. Plus now I will get exposure to some different teachers and start to meet some other people, so that is exciting!

Tomorrow night I am meeting up with some friends for more knitting. This time it is just a little informal group of girls that I hang out with some times. 2 of them had babies recently (one girl had twins) so we'd been taking a break to let them all get settled in with the new kiddos. I'll be glad to have that time with my pals again. I've missed them!

I got my hair trimmed and colored the other day .. I'm attaching a picture for your viewing pleasure. I seem to always be wearing the same shirt whenever I take a picture of myself! I swear I do own more shirts than just that one purple and gray one.

Have a great day everyone! And I'll see a lot of you on Thursday (or Friday) YAY!!!
