Hello ladies. We are back and just chillin until we head to see fireworks tonight. I learned something today. Apparently after losing 65 lbs, you should practice caution while wearing a dress around your husband.

Graduation party was good. My friend couldn't get over how great I looked. When we walked in she gave me a hug and said now go eat because I'm jealous. So I did. Had a huge salad and some roast beef. I think I might have overdid it on the roast beef though. I don't feel that great, I'm not sure why though. It is kind of hot so I don't know if thats it or what.

Danielle~ Thanks. I hope you have a great day too.

Jenna~ Thanks, it was fun. We need to get together more often with them. It was nice seeing them.

Southerner~ Thank you so much. I still can't believe it. I was telling DH today on the way to the party that I feel like such a new person.

Hi Melanie,

Glad the party was great. Something was indeed hot, I'm sure, and I'm not talking about the weather...YOU!! I'm sure you looked gorgeous in that dress.

Have a great night at the fireworks, lady!

Hugs, Jenna

Ha! About wearing the dress around your hubby. It's amazing how great we feel after shedding the extra lbs. May we always be amazed with ourselves & never forget how hard the journey was to get here!!!

Good morning ladies. Had a great weekend. Stayed on plan and went to ZUMBA yesterday. Went swimming and was in the sun yesterday so I'm a little bloated. Drank lots of water, but not enough apparently. I need to go to the store to get the stuff for my lc birthday cake.

Jenna~ Aww thanks. I felt pretty good, but apparently DH loved it.

Faithful~ Thank you. I am feeling pretty good. Still got to keep working to get to goal though.

Southerner~Exactly!!!! I never want to be back where I was!!! NEVER!!!!

Lexi~ You will be!!!!

So I need to get my butt in gear. I need to go get my plates renewed and then we are going swimming with my cousin and her girls. Have a great day everyone!!!

Hello wonderful friends!!!!!! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!!!!! I had an AWESOME day!!!! Went and got my hair done while my mom watched the kids. Then went shopping with my mom and the girls. I was amazed at how many stores I have to shop in now that I can wear an XL top. Its wonderful. I found a cute blue shirt at Macy's for today. I was looking for something new patriotic. I was also looking for a pair of new tennis shoes to work out in. I found a really cute pair I liked but the left one fit right but the right one didn't. The right one fit like an 11. That was the only pair so I had to pass.

Went back to my mom and dads. Had dinner with my mom and dad, my cousin, the girls and DH. We had steaks on the grill, mushrooms, and salad. Then my mom made my birthday cake. Angel food cake with cool whip and strawberries. It was delicous.

I was 195.8 this morning!!!! New number!!!

WE have another fun filled day today. Going to my grandmas for 4th of July festivities. Swimming and picnic. I'm taking a veggie tray and another sugar free angel food cake. Then this evening we will go in town to watch fireworks!!!! FUN FUN and no plans of not being on plan.

Have a wonderful 4th of July with your families!!!!

I'm so glad you had a great birthday! the cake sounds delish!

Wearing regular sizes is one of my most anticipated goals. Seriously I might cry in the dressing room when xl things fit. I'm so glad you are there and enjoying your new world of clothing options. You deserve it!!

Thanks girls!!! Had a great day. Ate on plan!!! WOO HOO!!! Drank all my water. Boy was it hot though!!! Yikes. Hung out in the shade as much as possible. Should have went swimming with the kids, but didn't feel like it. I wanted to visit more with family and really didn't do that all that much. Sat around and listened to everyone else talk. Went in town for fireworks and was not impressed. They were not the normal good fireworks. They stunk. Girls had a blast swimming and playing with their cousins. They are passed out, I need to head that way soon because we have to get up early so I can take my car in to the shop to get fixed from that fender bender from before.

Later girlies!!!

Hi Melanie,

Great that you had a busy but fun day yesterday. My DS was also exhausted by the events of last night, baseball game and fireworks after the game. We didn't get home until just before midnight. Luckily, we could all sleep in today.

Good luck with the car this morning. We are all still so glad that no one was hurt in your fender bender!

Have a great day,

Jenna

Hello all. Nothing new or exciting to report. Holding steady at 196.2. A little bloated today, Went to ZUMBA last night and had a great workout. Family is in from out of state this weekend so we will be hanging out alot with them.

Heading out soon to spend some of my birthday money. Looking to get a new pair of workout shoes. My sister sent me a text message this morning and she is coming in this evening. She said to be ready for a workout in the morning. We are going in town to football stadium, doing interval running and running the stadium steps..... Can I say I am a little skeered. I however will try my hardest to keep up with her just to show her I can!!!!

Melanie I would be skeered too! Hey lady you have been working out good so I am sure you will do fine. I cleaned at my church today for 2 hours and it was hot and I climbed up and down these huge stairs and about died! Melanie I so Zumba and I am glad you are having fun with it to. I feel like I am not even working out because it is so much fun. Hubby and I don't go dancing so I look at it like my dance class. My hubby has been listening to Latin music here at home at night and all I want to do is start dancing to the music like we do in class. He likey!!! I hope your bloateness goes down I always hate that when it happens to me. I need some new workout shoes as well, I hope you find a pair that you like.

Have a beautiful Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Good morning girls. Oh what a night. My mom watched the girls and I went to a local rodeo with my sister, cousin, cousins bf and his brother. My sister and I used to go to this rodeo years ago with our cousins when we were in High school. We hadn't been there in years and my one cousin that we used to go with was supposed to go with us, but he backed out so we still went. Stopped to get beer for cooler to take in with us. My sister wanted coors light. 5 carbs per beer. I had three..... Then before I knew it when we went for dinner afterwards I was ordering a small pizza. I had a good time and enjoyed myself. Scale is up to 197. Plan for today is pound the water and stay on plan at hopefully the last picnic for awhile. We have family in from out of town and its been one picnic after another lately. I do not regret my evening and I was right back at it this morning. Had my Atkins shake for breakfast.
Best line of the night was when I said, "Well that was a six pack of fun". To which my sister said, you mean "Your 3 pack of fun"...You had to be there, but my cousin and I laughed. I laughed so much I had tears in my eyes. Apparently when eating low carb I am a lightweight. I don't drink that much anymore.

It was way too hot this morning to go do our workout. Disapointed because I really wanted to. We are going to go to the pool instead and then going to melt at the picnic later. YIKES!!! Nest time when she is home and its cooler.

Southerner~ Thanks. I wish we would have went. But my sister backed out.

Maggie~ up and down steps is such a good workout. I do love my ZUMBA glad you do too. How fun to bring your dance moves home and for hubby to be enjoying them. I did find a good pair. Thanks for reminding me I want to find a picture. Looking forward to using them at ZUMBA on Sunday.

That sounds like a really great night! I'm also a lightweight when lowcarbing. I get silly fast. . Those two pounds will be gone fast and sound totally worth it!
