Yesterday, My hubby had a colonoscopy (he is fine, no worries) and the nurse, whom we see occasionally for this and that medical treatments, looked at me and said, "Wow! You have lost a LOT of weight!" So I blushed and demurely said, "Yes, I have. Nearly 60 pounds. Thanks for noticing!" And she goes, " Did you have Bypass surgery?"
This is where so many things went running through my mind....
1. Is that the only way people think you can lose weight?
2. I am going to take this as a compliment!
3. She is about to get educated
4. I am going to take this as a compliment
5. I am going to take this as a compliment
Me:"No actually (and I can see hubby cringing cause he saw my spark get lit and he knows I am going to go off for about 10 minutes now...lol). I found this magical way to do it! (Yea I am a smart ass).
Nurse: eagerly turns to see what wonderful technology there must now be "Really? What is it?"
Me: Nutrition and excercise!
Nurse: (disappointed) Oh the old fashioned way.
So then I went on to tell her about sp but I could see she was already tuning out and would not take the website down or pass it on. (Most people do write it down when I tell them). But I was still happy that I have had enough weight loss that someone noticed like that.
I wondered it I had weight loss surgery how I would have answered that question? Would I have taken it as a compliment or been embarrased or not wanted to talk about it? Just another confirmation that I am glad I am doing this "the old fashioned way" and I am proud of all of us who are working hard on it every single day. Carry on.

I want to know what your favorite Christmas song is.
Then, through peer pressure, whining (it is allowed in this case) and general flattery, we are gonna make MEZZOANGEL sing it for us in a VLOG Or sound bite.
I mean, have you heard this girl sing??? It will make your heart happy and brings tears to your eyes. I figure she might not want to do it but if we ALL ask really nice, then she will!
I know it would make my holiday brighter!
So My song is "Silver Bells'. Please Paula???? Please????
Your turn..... Im waiting....

We went to Reno for an annual racing meeting (My hubby is president, I am secretary) and it went really well. We got alot done, very little arguing (with 10 men on the board, ya never know!) got to visit with our Utah and Vegas friends and my sister Becky (texwife) got to come for a few days too! so that means I had a gambling buddy. I didnt win any money but we had fun. We ate pretty well and I only had a few cocktails. We never made it to any dancing which I was bummed cause that is always good for some calorie burning but everyone was pretty mellow and we went to bed before midnight each night. Everyone else left on Saturday but Frank and I had a jacuzzi suite so we decided to stay and enjoy it, just the two of us. Here are some pictures from this morning as we were getting ready to leave.
What I didnt know, is that my hubby had (with the help of my daughters) got me some items from Victoria Secret, a bottle of champagne, candles, bubble bath etc. and had a whole romantic night set up for us on Saturday which was super sweet of him and we had a good time.
I felt self concious in the underthingys but thought, you know what? He will like it so I wore that tiny bra and panties with as much confidence as I could muster and put aside that voice that was saying how much more weight I had to lose and how my fat rolled here or there and I gave it my best shot. Uh, yea. It worked out. lol.
Then today, we had breakfast and headed a few hours down the mountain to where our racing group was going to be in a parade. We intended to stop in and say hello and then get going home. Instead, we walked the entire parade route, waving and passing out candy and petting lots of doggies! It turned out to be over 4.75 miles! Just as we got back to our truck, it began to rain!! Perfect timing!
And because who doesnt like these guys?
I dont think I have ever walked so far. Ever. We walked nonstop for over 2 hours so at least I got some excercise! My knee pain has backed off but I am going to my dr. on tuesday so will give an update on that. All in all, had a good weekend. I was not perfect, but I made progress! All I can ask of myself, right? It's not like I ate a bunch of pastry wrapped BRIE or something! (booyah Maia!!!!) Team Jan!
