6 weeks post-op today...

and I feel FANTASTIC!!! Fantastic is my new word! I love it. It's FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!

Last week I set a goal for myself. Since i was so close to 30 pounds, I wanted to lose 3o by my 6 week bandiversary. I didn't meet the goal but I am closer! I'm down 29.5...well one scale said 29.5 the other said 29. Let's be honest ladies, the lower scale is always right!!

So I've had a great morning even with it taking me an hour and twenty minutes to make it to work. I'm at a closer bulding today, it should have taken me 40 minutes MAX! Oh well. I stopped this morning to get cigarettes...Let me stop here...I know smoking is bad. I know that I'm a dirty dirty smelly yucky smoker! I want to quit, I really do but it's super hard. I quit while pregnant and while nursing but I picked it right back up again and now I'm having a really hard time putting those dirty stinky sticks down. Don't get on me about smoking...I know, I know,I know! One thing at a time...first weight, then the cancer sticks.

Ok so I stop at the gas station and I decide to get some lotto scratch tickets since I have $3 in my wallet, I got $3 worth. I'm walking out of the gas station and there's a penny on the ground. I picked it up. Come on now! I just bought lotto tickets, I lost 29+ pounds AND I find a penny?!?! I'm totally winning a gazillion dollars on these scratch tickets! I didn't. I won $4 but hey, I'm up a dollar!

I stopped at crackbucks and got my crack...I mean I stopped at starbucks and got my coffee and now I am at work.

In traffic this morning,I decided it was a pefect photo op. I took out my handy dandy Crackberry (black berry) and snapped a picture of me for my 6 week, 29.5 pounds lost gift to myself! I look BEAUTIFUL!! I just got my hair done on friday too so my red is super bright!




My lunch bag is in the car seat. Gotta keep that protein packed food safe!!!


Let me tell you where I see changes in my face...First my eyes are deepset and now, you can really tell. Even though I did take the picture from the "fat girl, don't show my chins" angle, I can acutally see my chin structure...I didn't know there was bone there!! Let's see if I can find a before picture from the same angle....
This is me and the peanut August or september of 2009. Hello chubby chins!

I want to invite you all to be my friend on Facebook. I wasn't telling anyone about my surgery and now I tell everyone. I'm way to excited and happy to keep this wonderfullness in!
