Threading and 48

I have pretty much been a sloth this week so I was pleasantly pleased when I stepped on the scale this morning and I was down 1 lb. That makes a total of 48 lbs. If I hadn't been so lazy this week I probably could have knocked out those other 2 lbs. to get to 50 but this next week I am going to kick it up a notch and get it done! 50 here I come! In other news... The other day I went to get my eyebrows done. I have them waxed about every 3-4 weeks. I decided to try someone new and a new salon called Bella Bella that is close to my work. Well... I went in expecting to get them waxed and learned that she does threading. I have only had threading done once before but I thought I knew what to expect... I was sorely mistaken! It hurt like the dickens! Imagine plucking pain x 100 and that is what it feels like. They do look good and it was only $10 but I may have to think about having it done again... As for the weekend, tonight there is a Street Dance downtown Santa Clara. I am not going to drink tonight and will be watching the door for Danielle (bar) to make sure no one comes in with outside alcohol. I am working on the closet and my storage on Saturday and I get to see Dave on Sunday. If I attend a 1/2 hour class every Sunday then he can get passes to go off "campus" and we can go to the movies or grab a meal or whatever. I would like to see Ice Age or Harry Potter. We shall see... Hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...



  1. Nothing at all wrong with a pound in a week--it's perfect!

    I didn't think there could be an eyebrow hair removal method that hurts WORSE than waxing. And I have a high pain tolerance. Really, I do, I'm not just saying that to try to get Percocet.

  2. Hey, it's nice to lose weight without having to work all the time at it - congrats!

    Have fun with your visit - a short class in exchange for an off-campus pass sounds like a good deal!

  3. Congrats on that pound! Woo-hoo. Can't wait to celebrate your 50 with you!

    I've never done threading, but I get waxed or wax my own eyebrows. It only hurts for a second, I don't think I'd like to try threading now. lol

    Off campus passes sound wonderful! That will be really nice.

  4. Congrats on your weight loss! You'll hit your 50lb mark before you know it!

    I've done the eyebrow threading before and I didn't care for it too much. I get my eyebrows waxed every 2-3 weeks too and I am not a fan of that either. I do it all for the beauty but I definitely prefer the waxing.

  5. Congrats on the loss, you'll hit that 50 milestone in no time!

    Threading? Gah! I wax. Much nicer.

  6. Good job! I'm one pound away from 40. I hope to get there next week! Two more weeks till I'm off to the beach!

  7. 50 is huge. You gotta knuckle down and get it done this week. Time's awastin'.

  8. A loss is a loss, girl.
    Threading hurts like hell! I did it once, too - never again. I'd rather rip them all out at once then one at a time, thanks very much!

  9. You're so close! Can't wait to wooo hooo you on 50 lbs gone next week.

    I thought I heard of everything ... threading? I just use the tweezers.

  10. Congrats on the 1lb loss! 50 is really close, you'll get there before you know it!

    I actually have a friend who swears threading is less painful than waxing, but I've never tried it. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
