Weighing In On the Subject

At the banquet
Had a lovely evening, although it was a long one. Here is a picture I took of myself. I had someone else try but I did not like the results so you at least get to see the pattern on the blouse.  I got SO many compliments! I usually don't wear eyeshadow but decided to wear it last night and people really noticed.  I also posted it on Facebook (the pic) and I got some wonderful comments! Made me feel so good!

I did not get home until close to 11:00 p.m. Times have sure changed. Younger Katie J would have partied the night away but not anymore. I was ready for bed at 9:00! The food was good and I ended up eating the dessert. It was a raspberry mousse with a lemon glaze drizzled with chocolate.

I got on the scale this morning and I lost 1 lb. this week so I am down to 254. Only two pounds away from my lowest thus far. Everything after that will be new territory! It is interesting to me that I don't remember weighing this weight before. I can remember when the scale went above 200 in my early 20s (and of course 300 in 2008) but other then that. Part of it was denial I am sure and also I did not have a scale and would only know when I went in to the doctor but even then.  I look forward to the day where there is a 1-- weight!  I am hoping by the end of this year.

Plans for the weekend are to go to the gym on Saturday and do some sorting of clothes and the like. Sunday I will be getting my "new" car. I have decided that I will be selling my "old" car to my neighbors, Lu and Joe. They are really in need of a car (have two kids) and it has a lot of life left in it so I am happy to see it go to good use. I just need to figure out a mutually agreeable amount. Hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...
