Hello Lovelies!

Hey Guys!  Things have been good.  I went to Dr. Ren on Tuesday to get a little tweek and she was great, as usual.  She totally agreed that I could use a little bump.  I received 1 full cc and felt pretty good when I left the office.  I was able to drink my cup of water and was very excited about the prospect of feeling restriction!  However; it is never that easy!  I had to go back to the office a few days later because I was having trouble eating.  It was taking me over an hour to eat ONE softly scrambled egg or 1/4 oz of soup - crazy!  It was getting really uncomfortable for me to eat anything, I just always seemed to have this stuck feeling, no sliming, just uncomfortable in my chest.  Gasper took out the teeniest bit and now I feel great!  It is amazing how slow I have to eat now compared to before, it really makes a difference from being comfortable and uncomfortable while eating.

My weight has been a little crazy lately - I lost 7 lbs in two week after my original fill with Dr. Ren on the 12th and then I gained 3, so when I went back to Dr. Ren on the 30th she had me down as losing 4 in two weeks, not too bad.  However; when Gasper weighed me this past week he saw that I had lost 8 lbs - in a couple of days!  I didn't count that weight because it is their scale and it was not Monday - but boy do I wish I could have!  This morning was my official weigh in for the week and I am happy to report that I am down 4 lbs, making my total 34.  I am happy with this and feel that the band is finally pitching in!

Saturday I went to New York & Co because they were having a huge 50% off sale - off of EVERYTHING in the store!  I am so excited that I can finally fit into their XL shirts/sweaters again.  It has been a while.  I bought a couple of cute tees, cardigans, sunglasses and some jewelry.  Now I just need to purchase some crop pants and bathing suits for my cruise on the 25th.  Oh, and I have to have all of my dresses altered - it seems that I never noticed that they are all too long!  I am short - 5.2 - which would constitute as petite, however I always find it difficult to find plus sized petite clothing.  Anyway, I realized the other day that I look so much older because they are way past my knees, so I am going to fix this problem!

I have been BAD on the exercise front, I think that running outside has totally bummed me out.  It is so much harder and now I feel so behind.  My 6k is on the 18th!!!!!!  I had to go back to the end of week three and I was almost done week six!  I started to get nervous because I won't be able to finish the program in time for the race - then in true Colleen style - I decided that I would pout about it...  UGH

I want to post a blog (**Updated - meant to say Vlog!) soon - hopefully tomorrow night!  Until then, have a great Monday!

First of all I love your layout and I don't know if it's always been this way but it's gorgeous!

Yay for fills, but I'm glad you're not feeling too tight - that sort of constant icky throaty feeling is one I'm familiar with, and I'm glad you're done with it!

Keep up the good work!

Congrats on the loss. It seems there are a few of us walking the fine line between too tight and just right.

Love the signature at the bottom!

we are twins! 1) I love NY & Co. and one of my biggest NSV's, was when I started fitting into there clothes again. 2) I am only 5 ft 1, and have the hardest time finding pants that fit...I hate it! What size are you in? Maybe I could send you my shortened pants?

Glad everything is working out well with Dr.Ren, you are doing fantastic!
