6 Month Badiversary and Guess WHAT????

According to the Dr.'s scale I have lost 40% of my excess weight!!! You can't see me but I am doing the happy dance! I had no idea that it was so much. The best part about the whole thing is that I haven't gained anthing back. Even at times when I felt I was struggling I was still on track. You have no idea how shocked I was when he gave me the info!

I was telling him and the ladies in the office about the BOOBS trip, and they thought it was as awesome as we did! He suggested that at the next one we contact Allegran (sp?) and see if they would sponsor anything. I couldn't stop myself from telling everyone about the trip and how much we had lost. I find it inspiring.

He gave me a fill, thank god. I feel great restriction in the morning but it wears away after a while. This makes fill #6 for me. Thanks for all the birthday wishes! So far this birthday has been a great one, except that I'm at work!!!!

The Troll

Its really nothing, I'm just frustrated that there is someone out there just putting people down. I found out about the whole thing during the Chicago trip and it really fires me up. I was looking at some of the blog and its just ridiculous. Actually its sad. Its disappointing to me that some of the people I follow stick up for him using excuses for his behavior. I'll be over it shortly-its just that since I just found out its fresh in my head.

I don't want to fire anyone else up either, this was more of a vent/statement than anything else. We've spent the majority of our lives being judged, today on the news another kid killed himself because he was being bullied. I'm not saying that the situation is that drastic here on the blogs, but it shows that what you say/do matters to someone. It never killed anyone to be nice. And maybe thats just a pipe dream, but since my bday is tomorrow you should give it to me!

Trolls and drama

Why do I let myself get sucked in?????

Weekend Wrap Up

I was so nervous about Chicago. I was nervous leaving the kids, nervous that I wouldn't get along with anyone and about a million other things. But I made myself go because I knew that if I didn't I would regret it. And let me just say that I'm glad beyond words that I made myself go.

It was so surreal to meet everyone in person. We have been so intimate on the blogs telling each other some of our inner fears and doubts. Lets face it, these blogs are not only about weight loss they are about our everyday lives. I have never in my life felt so supported than I have these last 6months blogging.

Everyone that I met surprised me. I wish it could have been longer and that we could all just live together! I forget who mentioned it, so I can't give them credit, but one of the ladies compared it to being in a sorority. And it really was. I hope that we can do these types of events again. The women did an amazing job putting all of the details together so I want to give a little shout out to the planning committee. I know that after this weekend I have made some real friendships.

I am so behind!

I have off after today, so I will be catching up on the blogs. Who knew that things could get this crazy before a trip! I gave my husband the weekend off by taking the kids to my sisters, we have not quite recovered. Also I have a major toothache and think I need a root canal. :( I'm trying to get into the dentist but they don't come in until 1pm. Bastards. I've taken 4 advil, orajel and a darvecet (sp?) its not cutting it at all. It's ruining my days off.

So, this weekend, yours truly is attempting to bike 11 miles. WHAT???!! Yes, ladies 11 miles. And no I have not trained, I have not even broken a sweat in months. What the heck am I thinking you might ask? I don't know. LOL

A group of girls at work are getting together to go so I am borrowing my sisters bike and giving it a whirl. I have not been on a bike since I was 11. Good Lord. What if I break her bike? Oh, God. What am I thinking? I hope I don't bite it. That would be embarrassing, of course I've done worse to myself in public.

They have tried to explain it to me but I don't understand why bikes have gears. The last bike I rode had had brakes where you pedaled backwards. What if I forget how to break? I think I'm crazy. One of the girls is a former fatty who got thin/fit the old fashioned way and looks amazing. She has threatened me with push ups if I whine any longer. Did I mention that I hate her?

Actually is it horrible that I like her more since finding out she used to be a fatty?

I feel like a celebrity!

Can I tell you how awesome it is to be featured on the BOOBS blog? Seriously, these ladies have worked so hard to pull this together and I am so appreciative.

Band news: I'm down to 194.8. I should be following the rules better, but its a work in progress! I'm so nervous for BOOBS. I don't know why-I think I'm socially retarded. LOL.

Better get back to work, I'm going to try to vlog later because I dyed my hair, but I feel like its not quite the right color so I want some feedback! Til then.................
