Celebratory Thoughts

I have a few random thoughts to celebrate today.

First off, I showed my kids a picture of me from 4th of July last year and they said I should post a comparison photo on my blog.

July 2009 ...30 lbs and many workouts later... July 2010

Secondly, I received this in an email and just had to share it with everyone for a good laugh in weight loss blogland:

I don't want to brag or make anybody jealous or anything,
but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

When all else fails, just tell someone this. It's bound to brighten any "bad" weight loss day. *GIGGLE*

And finally, I created and sent out a 4th of July digital scrapbooked card with photos of usto our friends and family in email and got these two compliments back:

"And might I mention that Leah is looking a little thinner in the face? "

"You look RADIANT and thin too!"

Now, you know that just helped to make my weekend even more special! Oh, and my average weight for the last seven days.... 199 lbs. :)

Have a great week everyone!
