Celebration!

Friday, June 27, 2008

Got up and hitting ye olde Evil E first thing yesterday morning before heading out to my son's surgical residency completion ceremony where I got to hear all the accolades pouring...(proud papa takes a bow! lol) and turned down the dessert (either creme brulee or tiramisu...yummy, so I hear...but "nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels!") .

While I wasn't really planning to "show off" my new improved self, it was a very special occasion in which MANY members of my extended family were present to offer my son support and praise. Even my younger sister, whom I haven't seen since she got married and moved off to the California Coast 22 years ago!Suffice it to say I "wowed" 'em all! :-) Hoping some pics come around that I can share...we'll see.

Part II of the celebrations continues tomorrow at my aunt's place near Kalamazoo...beautiful place on a lake...nice and casual, as opposed to last night which was at a snazzy country club.

Will keep posting away my jam-packed vacation...off to the fitness center for more of that "evil E!"

    Great to hear that you're "wowing" the relatives - that must feel good. WTG on keeping up on the exercise and on taking it easy! I assume you've found a gym where you can visit as a guest - that was such a blessing when I was last in FL. Happy vacation, Michelle

    Yahooo for you - and you're a stronger person than I for skipping the creme brulee. OMG I love that stuff!!!

    Congrats to your son - that's a long, hard road he's traveled.

    Oh yeah ... Is he single?! LOL emoticon

    Proud papa indeed!!!!

    It is great to be surrounded but so many wonderful people who are making this tremendous choice to change their lifestyles and choose a life of health. It makes my days so much easier to know it is possible and to gain inspiration, ideas and motivation.
