I am NOT afraid of the dryer anymore?!@!!!!

I just realized, that in the past I had always blamed hot water washing or the heat in the dryer for the fact that my clothes were tighter after being washed....

Today I realized that I am no longer afraid of that, I have no fear when my husband does the laundry.  Actually, I enjoy my jeans fresh out of the dryer, they tend to stay on now...after a few hours they sag in the but or start falling down....so.......

I just wanted to share.....never fear....one of these days you will no longer be scared of the monster that lives in the dryer and shrinks your clothes.....

Trampoline and wedding!!!

So it's been about a week.....

I made a lighting fast flight to H-town to my baby sisters wedding.  This was my first time having my family see me after surgery so I was excited to show off.....

The first night I was there I stayed at my sisters house....she has 2 little girls that are the awesome....we hung out and I jumped on a trampoline.....seriously...I hadn't been on a trampoline since I was around 10 years old....boy let me tell you, it is more work than I remember.....here's proof!

Then we hung out, we went shopping at Kohl's, I had never or hardly ever been able to fit into anything at Kohl's and this time I had to send stuff back and switch it out for a smaller size.....I'm in 20's and some 18's.....also wearing 1x shirts.....that button and don't snag....for the first time I was able to just pull on a pair of pants.....yay!

Then off to my mom's and then the wedding....my baby sister looked so pretty and so happy.....long story, and there was a lot of emotional stuff happening around this event, but it went off without a hitch....check them out dancing their first dance......

And here I am making silly faces with my niece....she is such a girl now....can't wait to see what she's like when she hits her teen years!

In the meantime I am down another 2lbs making it close to 58!  Christmas is around the corner and I can't wait for my Xmas present this year.....it's off to Vegas Baby!!!!!

Awesome Day!

So today I got an awesome job offer....ok will have to move from Cali to Florida, but they'll move me.

Stepped on the scale, lost 3.5 lbs....so I am 56lbs total

Worked out like a dog, was able to do new stuff!

Went out to dinner.  Ordered a Rib-eye, had the rib, left the eye...brought it home and will put into the leftover grilled meat pile...I'll cook down tomorrow and make a "slime" with different meats, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, etc.....love it!

I am loving today!~

Chinese food today....

So....I hadn't been out to lunch in a while.

Hubs and I went out for Chinese and then grocery shopping.  I go in and they sit us in a booth.  My heart immediately started beating faster, and I felt the anxiety of not fitting or trying to wedge in....and guess what!  I slid right in, with room to spare...like 1/2 a foot to spare.....Yay!

So I ordered off the lunch menu.....Mongolian Beef, hold the beef, and give me chicken instead, steamed rice, hot and sour soup.....

So here comes the soup....I took 3-4 sips.....

Then came the meal....I ate 1/2 of a wanton, and 1/2 of the spring roll.....then I had maybe 3-4 bites of the meal itself.....and that was it!

I have Chinese food leftovers to last me through the end of the week!

I was actually surprised....and then thought to myself....wow! I used to be able to eat all of it, clean plate for sure!  and still have room for fortune cookie, and maybe be hungry a few hours later.....
