I have decided when I reach my first "goal" of 200 pounds (which is in about 10 pounds) I am going to buy myself a FitBit, BodyBugg or Body Media. I am not sure which one I want. I spent the better part of last evening doing research on all devices. The conclusion I came to from reading articles and reviews is that each device has a lot of things going for it.
I am leaning towards the FitBit because you don't have to pay to use the website. I really want the most accurate device tho.
If anyone reading this has any of the devices, please share your thoughts with me!!!

this morning (well afternoon, since I didn't get up until after 12:00 - 3rd shifter here!) I decided I wanted a Greek Omelette. The only problem? I can't make an omelette to save my life! It always ends up as scrambled eggs with stuff in them. Either way, it is fantastic tasting. For those of you who read this and have not had WLS, you might want to add more since the portion is very small. For those of you who have had WLS, follow the recipe and you will still not be able to eat it all!
1 large egg
3 cherry tomatoes
1 tsp of chopped onion
3 small spinach leaves
1 tbs feta cheese
mix everything together and cook

The picture on the left was taken March 25th - the picture on the right was taken last week. Honestly, it has been hard for me to really see a difference until I looked at these photos.
I am very pleased with my progress to say the least

The past few days have been pretty busy. On Monday, my BFF Katie and I were going to go to Bariatric Support group, but some how messed up the time, and didn't get to go. We went to Olive Garden for dinner, and it was FANTASTIC! I had soup and stuffed mushrooms. I ate 2 mushrooms and 1/2 of the soup, gave Katie 2 mushrooms, and took the rest home for lunch the next day. The soup was beyond amazing!
We went to play bingo with our very good friend Marc. I didn't win anything, but Katie won $100, which was awesome. She took me to the movies :)
We went to see Rock of Ages. I will admit, I was a little skeptical at first, but it was the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. I laughed until my sides hurt. I would recommend it to anyone. The music was awesome too.
On Tuesday, I spent all day at the library. Summer Reading started, and we had soooo many kids show up! There were over 100! I worked the front desk checking books in and out.
After I came home, I was beat. I spent the night on the couch watching Season 4 of True Blood.
Today, I had to come back to work. It was soooo hot out today, I didn't even want to leave my house. I will be posting a blog tomorrow of progress pics... I hope they are ok, and I am in a sports bra and underwear, but really, I don't think that would be any different that a bikini? I am really proud of myself.
I don't really have much else to say right now

I honestly think my blog title are perfumes from Avon... anyway, I spent yesterday, today and will spend tomorrow volunteering at the Library.
I am totally honest when I say, I truly love volunteering there. It really makes me feel like I am doing something worth while.
I promised myself that I would spend the evening reading. I have every intention of doing that too.
I am supposed to meet with a trainer on Friday, now the gym called and wants to know if I can go to another gym to meet a trainer... oy vey! What a pain in the backside! I suppose I can go to the Altoona, PA facility. That could be alright. I just don't like the thought of driving in there.
I have to be honest, I am not really a fan of my gym. I liked my old gym a lot better. The equipment seemed nicer, and the people weren't as pompous and douchey. I suppose it is the time of day that I go. Maybe I will pick a new time?
I went shopping with my BFF on Monday and it was a lot of fun. I finally found a pair of shoes. They are not exactly what I wanted, but they will do until I can get a better pair this fall.
We ate at Chipotle. It was amazing good. I got a burrito bowl w/ brown rice, chicken, fajita veggies, fresh salsa, black beans, cheese and lettuce. If I would have ate the entire thing it would be over 600 calories, which, considering all the food there, isn't a bad deal at all! I have gotten 4 meals out of it. I am amazed at how wonderful and fresh everything was. I adore their fresh salsa. That stuff it amazing!
I think that is all for now
