Happy Little Puppy...



I have decided to post a picture of a happy little puppy in honor of Jen!  My picture of the saddest little puppy in my last post was very upsetting, I know!


I am back to losing again, yay, and am only 3.5 lbs from the 199 mark.  I am determined to have this happen by next Monday's weigh in as my birthday is Saturday and that was my original goal.  I should be able to accomplish this.


I have updated my blog a little bit and wanted to share the changes with you all.  I now have my progress information listed on a separate page at the top of my blog.  I have also added my progress pictures to another page as well.  Feel free to check them out, I am pretty happy with the results.


The gallbladder is still here and has seemed to have calmed down a little bit over the past couple of days.  Thanks so much for everyone's kind words last week!  I know that was a a downer of a post.  Two more weeks and it will be out, I can't wait to get it over with.  


As I mentioned, my birthday is Saturday and because of this whole gallbladder issue I have decided to cancel my plans for the weekend.  Dan and I were going to Musikfest in his hometown of Bethlehem, PA.  We haven't gone in years and I was really looking forward to it.  Unfortunately I don't want to chance having another gallbladder attack and I would be forced to eat out all weekend.  "Forced", I mean that is the fun of the fest - hearing great music and sampling great food and beer.  Too much fun could end bad for me at this point.  Oh well, it's not like 31 is a significant age to acknowledge anyway!  We decided that we would combine my birthday with a trip in the fall for our anniversary.  Somewhere with lots of foliage and of course spa treatments!

You are so close to 199! I'm predicting over the weekend (no pressure). Glad the GB is feeling a little better.

Happy almost-birthday! So great that you are just on the cusp of Onederland!! BTW, I think you should go as Joan for Halloween, too . . in your pink & black dress! (Though it will probably be too big by then!) :)

Happy Birthday for yesterday. I just found your blog and I'm sorry to hear about your gallbladder trouble.

Like you say though, in two weeks it'll be gone and you can relax! :)
