When I started my weight loss journey just over a year ago I thought that losing 20 lbs would change my life. Well, in essence, it did. But......I realized it wasn't enough. I knew it and Spark People knew it.
I plowed on. I changed my life and my life style. Today, for the first time in over 20 years, I walked into my closet and knew that everything and I mean EVERYTHING would fit me. Actually, some things would be just to big to ever wear again but I would not have that angst of, "What can I wear?? What will fit? (let alone look good)."
I am about a pound and a half from my goal. I can't believe it. Nearly 40 lbs gone, never to return. I went from a size 14/16 to 4/6. Wow.
Can you say WOW!!!
Yesterday, I bought an adorable top, size Petite/Small and it looks great!! (even my teenage daughter said so!).
Life is different, I need to get used to the new me in the mirror but again, can you say WOW!

Hello all my spark people friends. I have been back from Aruba for a couple of weeks now. My tan is fading but my spirits are still in the clouds. I had a wonderful time and to be honest it was even better than expected.
My favorite part of the week was late in the evening. We would end our day at the casino. (yes, we came out ahead for the week!). It was next to the place we were staying. We would take off our shoes and walk through the sand to the water. We'd grab a chair and I would sit in my honey's lap and we would watch the stars and the moon and the waves rolling in. It really was magical and I felt like a young kid again. (yeah, we made out too!!!!!)
Oh, and I didn't gain an ounce and I have to admit I did eat and drink!!
Today I am having my breast lift. I have talked about this before. Having lost nearly 40 lbs now has really taken a toll on the girls. I found a wonderful Dr. who is going to do the procedure. No implants, no enhancements, just a lift. I'm excited. I've really wanted to do this for a long time. Funny thing is that my guy says he really doesn't care and I'm fine the way I am. Well, timing is everything in life, isn't it.
So, wish me luck!! My operation is around 10 am this morning so I'm off to shower!!!
Be back in a few days!

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the week. It is a very difficult, jam packed day but then I'm done.
Wednesday morning I leave for Aruba. I have been trying to think about the last vacation I took without my children. I think it must have been about 10 years ago. Wow, am I ever due!!!
By this time on Wednesday, I will be getting dressed for dinner. We are going to several restaurants while there.
There will be long walks on a moonlit beach.
Mornings by the pool eating fresh fruit and soaking up the sun.
Mid-day siestas with my honey.....oh lala!!!
Afternoon dips in the pool and being lazy and then lazy some more.
Wonderful sunset evenings
Dinners, dancing, casinos and fun!!!
I am a happy lady!!! I doubt I'll be here before I go but will let you all know about my trip when I return.
My boyfriend is already down there and says the weather is beautiful and he misses me.
Doesn't get much better than that!
