Day 135--Early weigh day and I am going to a woman's retreat

Zipped up to the clinic and weighed. I lost 3 more pounds which makes the grand total of 54 pounds lost, gone forever. Of course it would have been thrilling to actually go beneath the 300 mark but I will next time I'm sure. I now weigh 302 pounds.
I also got my hair colored today. Yes, I gave myself my Ilost50pounds reward. Also got it cut shorter. I'm so excited I can't believe I actually had the guts to do this. I have never done this before. Not sure what everyone will say but I LOVE IT!
I am leaving tonight to spend the night with my sister then early tomorrow we are heading off to a woman's retreat with her church. Okay I have not spent the night away from home since my Mother (miss you Mom) was dying 6 years ago and I spent every moment I could with her. Those overnights were not necessarily fun. But this will be!
*******Quick signs that make Zaa's heart beat fast*****
  • I put my shoes and socks on while standing up. And I didn't fall over! And I didn't lose my balance.
  • I used the normal sized stall at WM today and I fit excellently and it wasn't until I was wiping (sorry to be grody but oh well) that I realised I was having no problem whatsoever. None.
  • I got down on the floor to scrub up dog vomit--fun I know--and it didn't hurt my knees to be down there AND when I got up it was so incredibly easy I could not believe it. I had to get back down and come back up again just to see if I could!
  • I didn't get out of the hair place til super late and had to zip home to get my daughter from school. I did not one time while I was there think about food. But when I got home I was famished and had some lunch. Okay so why is this in the list? Because there was a time when I would have made darn sure that I ate beFORE I got my hair done so I wouldn't waste away while getting my hair done. Or at least zipped through a drive thru and ate on the way home, who cares if I'm a little late to pick up my daughter I'm hungry!
***********I'm done********
And I really am done, I have zillions of things still that I need to pack before I can leave and I haven't even THOUGHT about dinner.
Exciting days folks. Many changes for Zaababy. Hugs to you all!
