25th High School Reunion!!

I had a blast travelling to Central Pennsylvania for my 25th High School Reunion! My ConfidenceMeter was on overload, with all the compliments I received! It made me feel really really good, and just reignited my passion to get to my goal weight.

Here's the ubiquitous 'seat belt' photo that is required on all weight loss blogs!! Look how much extra belt!! I actually fit into a Southwest Airlines seat!!  If you've ever flown Southwest, you know that's saying something!!

These smiles were plastered on our faces the whole trip. Needless to say, I'm sure I gained at least five pounds. I just HAD to sample all my favorite comfort foods from Pennsylvania (read: carbs!)  I think this picture was taken after I had shown my son the joys of a 'Grilled Stickie a la Mode' from Eat-N-Park.
Hope everyone had a great week! This week is back-to-school for us!

Friday Weigh-In....NOT!

There will be no Friday Weigh-In this week, because I'll be travelling to Pennsylvania for my 25th high school reunion!  Of course, that meant shopping for new clothes! I will post pics when I get back.

My Ziplining Adventure!

    Despite my fear of heights, ziplining has been on my bucket list for a while. But the maximum weight limit was 200 lbs, so I really haven't been able to cross this item off until this year. My brother took me for a belated birthday trip to Wimberley, TX.
Me in purple in front, my brother and his gf on left, my son on right.
    As you can see, the view was amazing!! The first step off was a little scary, but after 3 seconds, it was pure exhilaration! This course has a total of ten ziplines, of varying lengths and heights. A bit of hiking was required also (a good workout!)
    We had a blast and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an adventure!

Size Ten!!

   I like my jeans to be a bit 'snug' in the waist, so I don't have the urge to 'suck it in' all the time! My current size 12s were feeling a bit loose lately. So I went shopping today and low and behold...
   Sorry the pic is a bit fuzzy, but that size tag says "10 average". And I am so excited!! Now I'm not fooling myself, I know all jean brands are not the same, I'm sure I couldn't squeeze into a Levi's size ten, but I'll take what I can get. And I did! I bought three pair! LOL
  I haven't been a size ten since....evah!!  I have spent my entire adult life a size twelve or more. I'm just so happy! The other day my son said, "You're shrinking, Mom".
   Today my brother is taking me ziplining for a late birthday celebration... will post pics!!

Friday Weigh-In and It Finally Happened!

It finally happened...

    I officially weigh less than my 13y.o. son!!  This has been one of my goals! Because no mother wants to weigh more than her ninth grader!!

Friday Weigh-In


Yay! The weight loss continues!! I am so excited! My 25th high school reunion is in three weeks, and I am finally at my graduation weight. I really like the way my clothes fit, and I like my reflection in the mirror.
