new jeans

So today was the first day I wore my new levis, I haven't worn levis in like 3 or 4 years.

I got on the scales today and hit the 80lb mark. I can't believe I have lost 80lbs. I still have a ways to go but I am happy with the results.

Well the Chicago trip has been canceled. I guess maybe there will be another one planned for next year sometime. Vegas for New Years is still on the books. I look at it this way, I will be able to save more money for Vegas now. Plus that gives me more time to lose more pounds/inches before my friends that haven't seen me in a year see me. If that even makes sense. I haven't lost any in the past week or so but I think I might have lost some inches. I take the stairs more also. Sunday, I tried on a pair of jeans that wouldn't even button the week before. guess what? They buttoned and zipped up. They were a little tight but it's not like I am wearing them. I will wait till they get a little more comfortable. The odd thing about these jeans is that the first time around they seemed tight in the thigh area and now when I tried them on, they were actually too lose in that area. I have a feeling I am going to have a hard time finding jeans that fit perfect. Oh well, as long as they keeping getting smaller in size, I don't care.

Last Saturday I did the walk from obesity. It was fun. I wish I lived closer to the city, I would that walk every weekend morning. I didn't think to take pics, maybe somebody did from our team and I can get some from them. I also won a free fill from my doc's office. Yay!!!

Well I had my third fill on September 8th. So now I am now down 73lbs. Energy started to come back to me. I take the stairs as much as possible at work. Then some days I am just lazy. I am looking forward to my trip to Chicago, so much to see there and so many places to walk around. I hope I will need some new clothes by then.

Well six months in, I am now down 66lbs. It really made my day. To celebrate, I treated myself to a movie. I saw Hamlet 2. Loved it! Steve Coogan is amazing. So I took some pics before I left for the movie.

I also tried the Vivano (spelling may be off) from Starbucks. The Banana Chocolate was pretty good.

My weekend

Well my friend Kris is engaged so we all went out to celebrate. Bar food is so not healthy so I ordered chicken tenders. I really wanted a beer though. I got water instead. Still at 61lbs gone. I need a jumpstart or something. I am not complaining though. Here are a few pics of that night.

Saturday we went to the movies. Tropic Thunder is worth seeing. I admit, I love Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. I have never laughed out loud so much during a movie. After that we decided to see Mummy 3. It was fun for what it was. Plus, Jet Li and Russell Wong!! I was in heaven.

Been keeping my calorie intake at or around 800-900. Worked in the yard and stuff too.

Country Pest

Living in the country, you come to learn to deal with a lot of pest and stuff. Well we have new pests. Sunday morning I woke up to cows in my yard! About 20 of them. I miss city life.

I took these pics with my new phone (pink palm centro!!)

Magic Mirror

We saw this mirror at the Mall Sunday and we thought it was a fun house mirror that made us look smaller, turned out it was a real mirror. My mom has lost weight too, now her legs are all skinny.

stuffy Saturday

I got up this morning, my head all stuffy and a little fever. Or maybe my fever came from seeing James Franco in Flyboys.

Well yesterday I tried honey mustard chicken wings, I ate 2 small wings. They were ok, but I think I will stick to boneless wings or chicken tenders. The guys at work just love chicken wings so I wanted to see what the fuss was. Well now I know I am not a wing girl. To make up for my lunch that was less than thrilling, I made a low carb pizza using low carb fajita wheat tortilla, mushrooms, turkey pepperoni, tablespoon of pizza sauce and low fat mozzarella. It was delish. I'm glad I found turkey pepperoni.

It is now 3:45PM and all I had today was half a bowl of multigrain cheerios. Think for dinner tonight it will pinto beans and baked chicken breast. I am so glad I can handle chicken. There are some people that have the band that can't handle chicken. I found out that I can't handle eggs, pineapples, regular sliced bread, and baked ruffles anymore.

Ok I guess I should post a couple of pics

Here is me and some friends at New Year's Eve, I had pretty much given up on life and faked being happy around everyone

Now this pic was taken around May 08, 40lbs down

sorry its blurry but I am a blurry person. I am now down 55lbs. I still have a ways to go but I no longer fake being happy cos I am.

I would love to lose another 30-40lbs by October 24th when I go to Chicago to see the queen (Madonna)

The first post is the deepest

Well first off, I had lapband surgery March 18, 2008. I decided that I should start blogging as a way to help myself be more accountable for my actions during my weightloss journey and life. So let me start by saying that I have lost 55lbs, yay!! Now I kind of feel I am at a slowing down point which I don't want. My goal is to blog at least once a day, we will see how that goes.
