Wow! 50 followers! And I took the cutest picture of my life (so far)....and got a fill

I can't believe I have 50 followers! That is amazing to me! Thank you all so much for following my wee bitty little blog :)

So this weekend I took the cutest picture of my entire adult life...at least in MY eyes it is (I had to say "adult" cuz my dad pointed out that I had some adorable kid pic's...he so doesn't get it). My friend snapped the first picture BEFORE hair and makeup were done for the party I was hosting, and it turned out so good I thought it was a fluke...so I asked him to take another picture AFTER the hair and makeup were done and I couldn't believe it! Two pictures of my body that I thought looked AMAZING! Look at my legs! By all means, these are not skinny legs, but to me they actually look GOOD. I was on cloud nine the rest of the evening!

And by the way, this was a total "re-purposing" of the SHIRT worn in THIS photo:

I yanked this out of the closet out of sheer desperation cuz I had nothing "cute" to wear to this party. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, my booty has shrunk so much that I can now wear this as a DRESS...albeit a SHORT dress, but it totally worked.

The last couple of weeks have been a struggle with the band in that I have been very hungry and able to eat way more than one should, so today I received my 5th or 6th fill..I've lost track. As usual, they are extremely pleased with my progress. We did just a smidge of a fill (only .25cc's) which of course I won't know for a couple of weeks if it's enough...but I know for sure I needed it. Did I mention I ate about 10  oz's of steak AND 2 pieces of pound cake at a BBQ on friday? Yeah....it was time for a fill.

This weekend I am going to see my family for the first time in months. I was hoping to be under 200 lbs for this, but it's not going to happen. But I'm extremely content with my progress to date and can't wait to see everyone!
