A-Weigh We Go

So much for an early bed time!  The family came home from their dinner and the conversation was quite comical:  

Oldest son enters:  Dinner was yummy!!!  (walks away)
Turkish daughter enters:  Be glad you didn't go, Mom!  It was disgusting!  Terrible!  Horrible!  
Me:  Really?  Oldest son said it was yummy!!!
Turkish daughter:  <yells Oldest son's name>!!!  What did we just talk about in the car?!?  You broke the rules already!  

It was cute.  :)  

We spent some family time playing Rory's Story Cubes which brought a lot of laughter.  I'm glad that there wasn't an early bed time.

A couple of last-minute things I wanted to do - one of which was getting new pictures to compare to where I was in February when I last took some and use as comparison for post-op.  As I mentioned yesterday, I'm down 25.4 so I was anxious to see the side by side comparison.  I have definitely felt the difference in my clothes, but I'm not so sure that it's visible yet.  But here we go...

(hair looks better!!!)

 This one is for CME...because he's been so great.  His "work it girl" comment resulted in this silliness!

Looking at the pictures I can see some change.  What I see the most is the difference in the face...not necessarily size-wise, but smile-wise.  Yes...laughter was good tonight..and yes, I'm excited for the new chapter in my life!
"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14


  1. I think you are looking great! Keep up the good work.

  2. With your mind as your weapon and the Word as your Sword.
