DID YOU READ THAT!!! I lost 7 Freakin pounds this month.....(and I do contribute a % of that to my Brown event yesterday seriously).. Just got back from my fill and visit with my Dr. and I am thrilled.

I did get 0.5 cc which now brings me up to 8.5CC in my 11cc band.

I thought I was at 7cc's before but when he pulled out the volume I was really at 8cc.. So the doc said it is a matter of tweaking this time. He gave me .5 and asked me to listen to my body.. but I really think this will truly put me in my green zone sweet spot..... I think I have arrived!!

I am SOOOO freaking happy right now.. I am FINALLY on this WL journey... I am finally at the point where I feel good about alot of things..

NSV's - This morning I easily slipped on regular size 16 capri's and I have my size 14's all lined up for summer.. (I have been down to size 12 so I have quite a collection of skirts and summer stuff). It seems not so much thin clothes for winter, I must have hibernation genes and tend to stoke up calories for the long winter days..

1. If you ever won the lottery – what’s the very first thing you’d do?
Honestly... I have been blessed 1000x over, so the first thing I would do is to make sure my immediate family members were all comfortable. I am a big believer in supporting well thought out causes..so I would very much like to contribute to their goal. (I know this isn't crazy pie in the sky dreaming, but remember one of my rules is to "Get Rid of Stuff". I would make sure Amy W is on a plane for the CHicago trip..

2. What is your favorite curse word?
It would have to be sh*t. Reason is that I was never allowed to say that word as a child, and now I say it every opportunity I get. I treat the word as a verb, and try to pair it with an adverb e.g., Tough S, Holy S, No S. are but a few of my favorite expressions.

3. What is your favorite holiday and why
Here is something interesting about me, I am not a fan of religious or traditional holidays. I like the 4th of July, mainly because there is little to no obligation with that one.. you just chill out. I also have alot of good memories with family on the 4th.

4. What turns you on?
Nothing related to sex.. and no I am not asexual.. this is going to sound lame, but I love to decorate and change things up.. I think I have an illness in this area. I once had my DH re wallpaper a hallway three times in one year. I get antsy very easily.

5. Whose blog spoke to you, stayed with you, meant the most to you, stands out to you this week and why?
There were actually a few... I loved seeing Gen and her collarbones, Debi's post was very heartfelt, but Amy W.... she made me cry... I was serious about the BOOB cupcake sale!!

Alright, it is Friday... and I have so much to catch up on at work.. but I jsut wanted you all to know that my spirits have not been this high in a long, long time... have a great weekend everyone!!! XXX Hugs XXX


  1. I'm so happy for you. Makes me even more excited about getting the band in a few months. Hope it keeps getting better and better.

  2. So glad you are having an up week! Hope it continues. And 7 pounds -minus brown is still 7 pounds. Woo Hoo.

    I grew up with my dad saying your favorite work but we weren't allowed to swear either. Oh how life changes.

    Are you coming to Chicago-I can't wait!

  3. Wow girl! I am so happy for you!!! Keep it up and enjoy the green zone! I know I am. ;)

  4. Great job! I hope this fill brings you to your sweet spot.

  5. Yeah 7 lbs that is fantabulous.

  6. Wowser - that is so great!

  7. That's awesome...sounds like you're in the "zone". Keep up the good work.

  8. I just caught up on your older posts and saw your photo at Citizen's Bank Park...go Phils. Me and the hubby are season ticket (Sundays) holders for 3 years now...section 319...going tomorrow.
    Maybe we'll hook up there one day. I think you're my closest (geographically) bandster buddy.

  9. Congrats and the loss and the fill.
