On being married....and a few other random things

Today is my 17th wedding anniversary. I know what you all are thinking…but you have kids who are 17, 18 & 20 (Hubby has a 36 y/o too) and you would be correct.We did have all three children prior to getting married. I’ve always said that and then followed up with all the reasons (valid ones) as to why it played out that way but today I am not going to explain…it just worked out that way and I am okay with it :)

We would normally celebrate by going out to dinner and having cake (I plan to make him a blackberry pie because I picked another gallon of blackberries this weekend) Seems like a waste to go out for a meal. Guess we could always share.

Had a cool NSV this weekend. I have had a goal shirt hanging in my closet since about two weeks before I was banded. It is a western shirt with a Texas Long Horn on the back and it really cute...Got my boots, got my belt...needed the shirt. When it arrived I couldn't move when I got it on my shoulders and I could not snap it closed. I pulled it out on Sunday and thought long and hard about trying it on.....and so I did. Although, still a little tight to wear out anywhere it fit way better than the first try. I snapped the whole thing and it was very exciting. I cried! Hubby tried to make me feel better by telling me that it fit this time because my boobs are gone. Anyway, it is about a month away from fitting perfectly. Did I mention it was a Large marked 12/14 inside... NOT A SINGLE X BY IT!

I don’t have much to post about. Holding steady on the weight loss. I think I am at 41 lbs lost. I am a little over 6 weeks banded. I say I "think" because my scale does not always produce the same number as the one at the doctors. I will be going in for my third fill on Wed. and will get an official weight for my 7th week banded. I have decided to use the number I get there for updating my ticker or my "realize my success" page.

That's all I got :)

PS- Cara, you will be missed! Enjoy your trip.
