Randoms flying through my brain.

  • This morning when I got on the scales, I was under 190 lbs.  Not much under, but it was enough to make me grin from ear to ear.  I realize that 190 lbs is far from slim yet – in fact, still considered obese by many - but for me, it’s a victory.  Onwards & upwards! (Er… downwards, I guess I should say.)
  • I have so many pictures I want to share with you all, from so many fun events in the past few weeks.  But my brother THIEVED my laptop from me over a week ago, and thus I have no way of uploading my pictures.  So no photo dump yet, unfortunately.  But trust me… there have been good times.
  • Remember the time I told you guys I kinda gave up booze?  Well… it’s still happening.  I’m still Dry Jill.  I wasn’t sure how long I could keep it up, and gave serious consideration to waiving that restriction this past weekend.  But as it turns out?  I still had a blast on Saturday night, even without the rum.  Imagine.
  • At the evening of celebration for the Kennedy family on Saturday, one of the Kennedy children that was there was Billy’s daughter, Sadie-Anne.  And you wouldn’t believe the number of times I’d hear someone say “Sadie”, and my head would pop up thinking they were calling me.  I had to keep reminding myself that I’m no longer “Sadie”!! LOL!
  • The Ottawa Senators are giving me an ulcer.  And that’s all I’m going to say about that.
  • Still can’t get into Sons of Anarchy.  STILL.  I’m seriously contemplating just re-watching Prison Break, even though that would be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done.

  • Jokes. I’m pretty sure I’ve done way more ridiculous shit than that in my time.
  • But still.  It’s pretty ridiculous.  Not to mention… unhealthy.
  • It’s a peach of a day out there today… a peach of a day.  The sun is shining, and it’s finally warming up.  My mind keeps drifting to my cousin Jeff.  Today is his birthday, and I’d like to think he sent this beauty of a day down here just for his family & friends who miss him so much.  Happy Birthday Jeff!

Look at you, losing and stuff! Congrats!
Wish we could get one of those peachy days. Maybe next month.

Giving up the sauce will help whittle that waist even more! Keep it up!

Steph said...

You are doing awesome! I can't believe you are still on the wagon. :)

My scale finally started moving again.

So so awesome about your weight loss! I hate not being able to upload my pictures. I remember when we were in Utah away from home when Ryder was born early, I had my camera but none of my cords to hook up and get the pictures off, I remember crying to Eric one night that I just wanted to get my pictures. I think the stress of the whole situation and everything going on just made me want to be able to see and have something I love doing.

I"m so proud of your weight loss and your sobriety Jill!!

You rock!

Congrats on the weight loss! Progress is progress, regardless of how much or how slow!

Also, going dry is fantastic. It'll help you drop weight AND resets your alcohol tolerance, so it saves you money on booze, too. :)

Um... I watch Friend's over and over and over again, so what would be the difference with Prison Break? Now you're making me want to get it and watch it. I wish you lived around me, I'd give you my old laptop :)
