So proud of ya girl...lookin good in those jeans! Love the cake!!!

So funny about scales.... my old one(my favorite) goes wonky occasionally...a few months back I finally bought a new one which I absolutely hate...so I use the old one New scales are just so scary with the threat of higher numbers!

I went shop yesterday and I treated myself to a new dress and a watch. Here are pics of me in my new dress.







You can't tell from the pics but the dress goes to the ankles. It's flowy and comfy.

Aww thanks ladies! I felt so good yesterday. I really feel like I found ME again.

Here's a picture of me at my heaviest. This girl put on smile for everyone but was unhappy inside.



Today is my weigh in day, 188.2, I'll take it.

Thanks for the ladies!

It doesn't look like we are going to get to go home for the visit next month. Dan can't get the time off work. They are too short handed.

May will be 15 years that Dan and I have been married. He asked me if I would like us to renew our vows. We never had a wedding, we just went the court house. So I know nothing about planning a wedding. Good thing there is all kinds of info online. If y'all have any ideas then please let me know. This is going to be fun!

Oh Nikki do it, you deserve to wear a beautiful gown and show off your new figure and have a wonderful wedding ceremony.

A lot of the islands do wedding renewals free when you vacation there, if you can swing a big trip, but maybe you want to do it at home where everyone can see you? Look at pretty parks and things in your area???

Good morning friends!

I was going to plan it for here but I don't think many of my family and friends will be able to make it from Oklahoma. And since I didn't get to go home to visit this summer like planned I would like to do it there. We live in Louisiana and I want to have the renewal in Oklahoma. Not sure how to plan all of it. It wont be anything big just family and close friends.

Yesterday was my weigh in 188. Got on the scale this morning and it said 187.6. So glad to see it going down.

I think it's wonderful that you get to plan a renewal, and to celebrate it with all your family will be amazing!! How freakin exciting! Is there anyone there locally that would be willing to help you?

Great new avi pic, btw! Love it!

Nikki! I have said it before - you are such an inspiration - I've fallen on my journey and am trying to pick myself up. Not sure what WOE I'll follow but no matter, you still inspire all of us. Thank you.

Hi ladies!

Ellgee, I'm glad your back. Whatever plan you pick, I'll be here cheering you on.

Yesterday was my weigh in and I'm down 2.6 lbs yay!

I went to the dentist this morning and he wants to do a root canal. I'm so scared!

My dentist wanted to do one over 20 years ago.... I am still putting him off.... He quit asking about it since the problem has never increased... But he did cap those two teeth!
