OK ---I know you have heard me say this before but I must repeat it.


Even in prior jobs, I would be given a secretary, because I do have some very necessary skills, but computers and typing are not part of them. I am one of those that starts pushing buttons when I can't make something happen! SCARY!!

I want to post pictures, I want to have a roommate in Chicago, I want, I want-----

Going on vacation!

OK ---It's getting close enough for me to start bragging about going to Kauai for 2 weeks. We leave in a week so the pressure is on to get all our ducks in a row. We are so excited---DH and I need a vacation.

Went in for WL blood work this morning. 7 vials, seems like a lot? Results come after we return. I'll post on that later.

Don't have a lot of restriction but trying to keep the exercise going. We are going out this Friday night with some neighbors for a fancy Italian, wine pairing dinner.
Great way to start a vacation!

Wish me luck---It will be hard not to over indulge for the next 3 weeks. Maybe I will be like Sandy and my band will get tight on the airplane-----MAYBE!!!!

Is the "sweet spot" soooo precise? Does 10.1 put me over the edge while 9.6 does so little? Just so you know the acid reflux went away instantly. I have restriction but can still eat quite a bit and find my self circling the kitchen, far too often! It has taken me 2 weeks to lose the 4 lbs, that I gained back instantly --NO FAIR!!. My doctor is going on vacation so they extended my last visit for 10 days. Maybe at that point I will get .25cc's---

What do you think?

It will be my last prepaid visit. I'm having my first blood work done also, that will be interesting.

On another note---great things are happening here--

1)We are leaving on March 2 for two weeks in Kauai-----

2) My future daughter in law??? who has been mostly living with us for the past 1 1/2 years, past her Nursing Exams and has moved back with my son.

3)Our other son is doing well in college and just got a part time job---and told me the other night that he was feeling basic contentment lately---which is good because he has been depressed in the past.

4)I've lost 44 pounds and feel better most everyday!!!!

5) We're all going to CHICAGO!!!!!!
