Weekend Roundup

I’m feeling much better!

Saturday morning I realized that I had to get new jeans. My old ones are just not fitting, but I’ve been afraid to buy new jeans, like I’ll somehow jinx myself and suddenly gain back the weight I’ve lost.

But I decided to be brave.  So I went to the store,  picked up  a few pairs, and went into shock when I found a pair that fit.  A full size smaller than I was.  In skinny jeans! I was so surprised I tried on more jeans in that size to be sure.  I bought two pairs, rushed home and told Wizard.

He grins, and says, “Let’s go out tonight to celebrate! I’ll take you to steak and lobster.”

Um, yeah, I know–eating to celebrating is part of the reason I gained in the first place, LOL!

So later, I put on my jeans and said, “Hey Wizard, take a picture of me in my new jeans in case I can never wear them again. Because I’m STILL not believing it. I want a record. He snaps a few pictures with my camera, and we go off we went to dinner.

That night, I loaded the pics onto my computer and noticed that Wizard entirely missed the point. Do you see my jeans here?


No! Wizard entirely missed the whole point of the picture! I told him that, and he looked surprised. “Oh you wanted a full body shot?”

Sigh…men just don’t understand!

How was your weekend?

    Ha Ha – you have to love guys :wink: . They’re too much.
    Congratulations! You look fantastic. It is funny how we celebrate weight loss with food. I think we all do it too.

    My weekend was pretty good. Went to a niece’s wedding on Saturday. Sunday was just stuff around the house. I did get hubs to grill a turkey breast – YUM! Also, most of the packing fell off in my mouth yesterday. It feels a bit better but looks nasty.

    Viki, grilled turkey breast sounds good!

    Oh, you still had packing in your mouth? From the first procedure? I don’t know how you’re doing it. I’ve had a lot of painful things, but that just makes me shudder.

    And thank you :-)

    Shiloh, you are working so hard, but it’s all going to pay off! And your kids will be so proud of you :-)

    Wonderful that your mom kept the kids so you could study.

    Thanks. I don’t look that great, but I do feel better.

    Awwww. Love the shots of you! And that first pic is awesome, even if Wiz missed the point! Congrats on the new jeans. Isn’t that just the most fun?!? Now…where’s Linc? I need appletinis and cookies, STAT! ;)

    Zoe, great to see you here! I know you’ve been super busy, but really hope you’ll make time for us when you can!

    Trust me, it took a long time for me to work up the will power, and how knows how long it’ll last. I’m one brownie away from losing all self control :-)

    Silver, thanks. You had to see the whole thing–I could NOT figure out what he was doing. I kept tell him, stop using the zoom, not realizing he was mostly taking head and shoulder shots.

    I’m all for virtual cookies and appletinis. I don’t think Linc is even speaking to me right now :-(

    And this is what happens when I wake up too early… I’m late to all the best blogs. =o\

    You look terrific, Jen, even if the Wizard missed your lower half. I’m so proud of you – both for losing the weight and for being brave enough to buy new jeans. =o)

    Michigan won. That’s a good weekend for me. Oh, and I’m back to working in full swing now. It feels so good. Other than that, missing the kid like crazy. I don’t have anyone to talk trash with at home, and she’s the one who tells me the names of people when I forget. I think it’s taking longer for me to adjust than for her. LOL
