Here I go again.....

Well, the other morning I was tickled to step on the scale and see that I went down to 165!!! For the last few days, I've been bouncing between 167 and day I'm up the next I'm down. Sheesh...can't I just loose weight consistently without going back up a little first. I'm certainly hoping that by Monday I'll have lost more and that it won't bounce up and down. It's just so irritating. I know that I'm getting on the scale to often, but I've been so excited to see the losses that I just can't wait to see it again. I think I'm going to go back to just Wednesday weigh in's or something.

Bob left this morning to go up to Pennsylvania for a few days to get some things done with his Sister and his Mother. I think he'll be back on Tuesday. It's sure going to be a lonely and quiet weekend. It will be lonely working out at the gym for the next few days too.

My Son arrives here next weekend. I'm looking forward to that. We haven't seen each other since November when I flew to San Antonio for his Army Medic Graduation. He and I will be traveling to Ohio in 2 weeks to see my Daughter and the Grandkids. It's coming soon.

I was asked for new photos to show my weight loss. I'm not thrilled with these photos, but they'll do for this post. I'll start with the before and then the "now". I also discovered a new bra at Kohl's. It's about time I spent some good money for something so important. It's also more fun to buy a new bra when you're down to a 36 "C" from a 40 "D" ! After all, the "girls" aren't as young as they once were and need good support these days. I still have (and I think I always will have) the "Stanger" hips, but I'm slowly getting a waistline again. My new top is a medium (a size my upper body hasn't worn in ages) and my new shorts are a size 10. I bought 3 pair of 10's today and one pair of 12's that were a different style. It's great to be making this progress.

Going down..........

This is so cool......I'm down 2 more pounds....weighing in now at 166!!!

What's even better....I bought 2 new pair of shorts the other day they are size 10. I still can't get into my size 12 jeans comfortably yet. Must just be the different style of pants. It feels great!!

Update on my Son.........

My Son is being deployed over to Iraq. I'm not sure when as the military tells them different things all the time. The best information I have, is that they are to "touch boots down" on August 1st. He was granted leave and will arrive here in Maryland on June 21st. He and I will then leave here to make a weekend trip to Ohio on June 26th through June 29th and head back here on the 3oth. He will be here with me until July 7th. At that point and time, it will be the last time I see him for quite some time. I do not know yet just how long their deployment is. I've heard they can be gone for as long as 15 months. When I know more from him, I'll post it.
