Hi everyone!

I posted this on the maintainers thread but thought I should make a new post so people who aren't maintaining would see it too:

I've been being a badd JUDDD Buddd.

I'm around, haven't been reading on the board at all. I HAVE been doing rotations, like clockwork and have been maintaining really well. I'm living sort of between 166 and 163, which is just fine. I can see that some time in the future I think I might want to take off a few more pounds, but right now things are just far far too crazy for that.

We are packing up our house, in six days (counting today) the movers show up and will move all of our stuff into a storage unit. So we have to have everything packed up by next Tuesday night. We are taking clothing, personal items, computers and camping equipment with us. Oh, and our bikes. Everything else goes into storage, either the storage unit or my parent's basement (for stuff that can't take heat or cold, like paints and candles).

So I'm living with a plethora of cardboard boxes as far as the eye can see. We're preparing for the trip with great anticipation and quite a few freak-out moments. I'm updating the blog, so if you want to hear more about what's going on on the personal front, you can go there. I'd love to hear from you if you do, leave me a comment or send me a message and let me know you're reading. It gives me a lift.

I am glad to see that you all are doing well. I've probably missed tons of milestones, I'm sorry about that. But I just thought I'd pop in and say hi. I love you all even though I don't show it by being around much. But I do think of you all and wish you the greatest of successes.

I want to thank each of you for the role you've had in my success--the encouragement, the humor, the being in the same boat. You all rock.

This is not goodbye, it is just popping in to say I love you. I will try to pop in at least one more time before we leave for South Africa on September 15th. Meanwhile, like I said before, the blog is the best way to get my attention, since I just don't have time to read here like I used to. Life gets in the way, darn it!

Love you all. Thanks for being my Buddds.

Well, we're all moved out and my scale is in storage! I know exactly where it is but it's totally impossible for me to get to within a couple of hours. So. I'm using my jeans--deliberately packed one of my more uncomfortable pairs of jeans to make sure I'm not expanding out of them. I'm wearing them right now and they're okay.

Right now we're staying with a friend in Lawrence, KS. We leave later today to head toward Texas, where we're staying at my parents' house in Bryan. We visit family and get to meet a few new friends that we be traveling to South Africa while we're there.

Life is pretty good.

Thanks so much for all the compliments and kind words. You all are amazing, special and wonderful! I am so lucky to have such friends.

We fly out in ten days. Yikes! Ten days doesn't seem very long. I'll try to check in again before we leave.

Love, love, love!!!!!!

Dawn, I absolutely will.

Kissa, thank you. I've been fascinated by the stuff I've been learning. It's eerie how accurate it's been for both DH and I.

Luna, I love to hear how your adventure is developing! I wish you both the time of your life as you help so many who are in need!

Also, you just reminded me about the baggy pants that our good friend "Sheridan" advised us to do. I think this is a wonderful method of avoiding the scale and thrilled that you thought of this!
