Party time!

Today is DS's birthday party, so I'm afraid I won't be able to stay and play long today. I feel like I've hardly had any time to blog. What the hell with real life interfering with me playing here all day?

I lost yet another lb over night. Loving this - even if I am hungry most of the time! I tried solid protein yesterday (chicken salad for lunch, tilapia for dinner), and I just don't get full-feeling. I'm not too stressed over it. I want the band to loosen up a bit more before I freak out about it. It's still super slow going (1/2 c. chicken salad took me 30 min), so I am thinking I'm still a bit too tight to reap the true benefits of the band. If you've been in this spot, please comment and reassure me that it gets better!

Now, as for Chicago. You don't understand how badly I want to go. However, my entire family except for me is in brother-in-law's wedding the following weekend. That means a tux for DH as best man, a dress for DD as flower girl, a mini-tux for DS as ring bearer, 3 or 4 plane tickets, a hotel room for the weekend, gifts, meals out, and so on. I really, really, really am trying to figure out how to get myself to Chicago the weekend before, from both a time and money perspective, but I am afraid I'm going to have to be a game time decision. If we weren't moving, it'd be a no brainer, as I'm less than 4 hours from Chicago here in Ohio. However, it'd be a hell of a drive from Orlando! So, I'll keep you posted...

Finally, a few pics of me and the kids from DS's birthday on Thursday:


  1. Yes, it gets better. I'm sorry you are going through it right totally sucks. Well, except the part about losing weight like crazy!!! (Me=jealous)
    I hope hope hope you can make it to Chicago but yes, you are going to have a ton of expenses that month and it's time away from those 2 gorgeous kiddos!
    LOVE the photos. You are beautiful!

  2. I think as long as you're able to eat 1/2 cup of food without PBing, enjoy the weight loss and just talk to your doctor at the next normally scheduled visit.

    And great job at -50!

  3. Oh I so hope it works out and you can come! We'll miss you! And um way to go on ANOTHER pound - though I secretly hate you! Smooches.

  4. great pics! i have that same hat! You look so happy and relaxed. i understand about chicago....but only because i know soon you will be here in florida!

  5. Are you guys moving to Orlando? I live about an hour and a half from there!

    Great job on the weight loss! Enjoy munchkins party!!
