6 months today

23 May 2011

I am 6 months out today :)

I am down 86 pounds!
no mini goals at the moment

I am reached my second goal of 160 on May 12

I have 18 pounds left to go to get to Goal

I wear a size 10 jeans but they are getting loose..

and my BMI has gone from 41.8 to 27.1
Extremely obese to Overweight

All in all I dont care if I dont lose another pound, everything I've ever wanted to be able to do I can do.. I love being able to go into a store and find my size in anything I chose and not worrying if its too tight or makes me look bad.. I wear dresses and skirts.. which I have never done unless I had to.. 

My husband piggy backed me around the house for the first time ever it was a thrilling experience and nice for him to say that I am light as a feather, I better be careful or I will blow away haha.. 

I eat whatever I want without any problems, I dont eat rice or noodles because they fill me up to much.. I can however eat sushi rolls with no problem I can have about 2-3 of those.. I also dont eat many sweets.. Sunflower seeds are still and have become more of an addiction of mine.. and I am also now addicted to Thrift stores It has been my best friend while losing the weight..

The weight loss has slowed a lot.. but I am not complaining at all.. I am the happiest I have been in a looooooong time :)

So I entered a contest at Decorate This and I won!

I will receive:
  • 1 dozen handmade pinwheel cupcake wrappers
  • 1 dozen handmade flower cupcake wrappers
  • 4 extra large piping tips
  • 1 heavy duty 16" piping bag
  • 1 cupcake dummy for practicing
  • A variety of sprinkles and sugars for decorating!

I am so excited, and it was perfect timing because I am dabbling into baking, Vanessa is getting older I know I will be making more treats and snacks as the years go by so I need to sharpen my skills..

Nailin' Thursdays

19 May 2011

I want to start Nailin Thursday's

I am getting into doing my nails more, so when I do decide to re do them I will post something on the following Thursday.. I am also in the process of buying everything I need *professional* to do acrylic nails I think when its all said and done I will probably spend about a good $300..

So far I received 
Debra Lynn Professional 10 pcs. Acrylics Nail Brush Set

This is just to get me started, theres a #08 brush I really want to get but it made more sense to get a whole pack of brushes then just 1 single brush at the moment

Here is the design that I am currently sporting

I decided to go with a tiger pattern and some glitter, my friend Monica thought I put decals on my fingers it was funny.. I guess that means I did a good job..

and this is what I used:

I really liked E.L.F Purple pleasure, not too dark not too light..

Weekend fun!

10 May 2011

So Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the Mom's, My Bday was on Mother's day we celebrated Friday night with a huge BBQ and all my neighbors came :) I was so happy.. There was roughly about 20 people there not including everyone's kids, Everyone sang Happy Birthday to me it was so embarrassing! The dress I wore looked like this one:

I ended up sewing the front closed a little more because it was really revealing lol

My dad sent me money to buy the camera I have been wanting for my Birthday I am getting my first DSLR Nikon D13000 (or Nokia inside joke with Ash)
