I'm in the aughts!

I can't tell you how happy I am to be out of the teens and solidly in the aughts. I weighed between 210 and 219.9 lbs. (95.3 - 99.74 kg.)since 6/25. It was definitely the "slowest" decade thus far!

I lost 2.6 lbs. (1.18 kg.) last week for a total loss of 72.4 lbs.(32.84 kg.) since February. I now weigh 207.6 lbs. (94.2 kg.).

Next week is a BIG week for me for several reasons. First of all, I will be on vacation. I am sure I will post at least once since I'm not really going anywhere for vacation, but since I don't have internet at home, I probably won't be around much.

Next week is also my SIX MONTH BANDIVERSARY!!!!! I will probably do a post to commemorate this if I can come up with an "after" photo that I like.

Additionally, Monday, August 9th is my 37th birthday! If you write dates the American way, you will notice the date is 8-9-10 which I think is a very cool thing! I love my birthday. I've always loved having a "special day" each year. I don't have any big birthday plans yet, by I imagine my mom or sis will have a BBQ or something.

Finally there is a Friday the 13th next week and that has always been my LUCKY DAY. 13 was always my number as a kid when I played sports and I'm just odd enough to consider everyone else's unluckiest day my luckiest, I guess. I always wanted to get married on Friday, February 13th which would not only be a Friday the 13th, but would also be the day before Valentine's day. The next time that happens is 2015 so SAVE THE DATE! You never know!

So back to my birthday for a moment. Usually my mom and sis would get me a gift card for my (former) favorite store CJ Banks, which is a plus size store. But I don't wear plus sizes anymore so I guess I don't have a favorite store. I need clothes, though so I hope they come up with something!

What else? Not much I guess, but I am feeling chatty!

I'm going to the beach at the end of August! Yea! My family does a reunion every year and it always used to be on the Washington coast. We've gone other places for several years, but this year we are going back to Ocean Park. My girls have never been there (well I guess my oldest was there as a baby, but she has no memory of it). Since I spent four days every summer there as a kid, I am kind of excited to take my kids. But I am scared about the cost. I have a little bit of money put away for my vacation, but I think this weekend trip will cost at least $400. We rented a cabin so we can prepare our meals there for the most part, but it is about 5 hours from our home so I am thinking at least two tanks of gas ($70), cabin($200)
and I know my kids will want to ride go carts and bumper boats and other stuff with their cousins and we will likely eat out while traveling so I may have to hock something to pay for it. Damn, I hate being poor!

Okay, that is too depressing a topic. Did I mention I'm in the aughts? And its almost my birthday? And next Friday is my luck day? And I might be getting married in 4 1/2 years?

Back to work! I'd hate to get fired BEFORE my fabulous vacation gets here!

Liv was born on a Friday the 13th. She loves it so much that her skate number is #F-13. I think it's super special. But having an 8-9-10 birthday (even if only once in your lifetime) is pretty darn swell!

I love that new word-aughts. You are doing fantastic. We are both coming up on our 6 month bandiversary BUT you have lost twice the weight as me. I'm not even jealous (well maybe a bit) because I know how great you are working the band. Happy Birthday (early). Isn't it great to be lighter than last year.
