Happy bday to me!

Last Wednesday was my bday.  I turned 39. sigh.  More on this in a bit...

Monday morning stats (it ain't pretty)
weigh-in: 180.8lbs
up 1b from last week.  my first gain in this journey - at least this time I noticed!
I'll admit that I've lost a bit of focus in the last week or two...snacking, adding back carbs, not enough exercise, not enough water.....guess I need to jump back on the band wagon.

My bday was also my 4-month bandiversary so here are pics & measurements:

12/20/10 - start

4/20/11 - down 45lbs

12/20/10 - start
4/20/11 - down 45 lbs

 I see the most difference on the side shots - maybe because I don't spend a whole lot of time staring at my ass.  These pants are also way loose - still too afraid of skin tight anything.  These pics help remind me that I am making progress....but I also have more to go!  I am so off to the gym tonight.

I'm also taking measurements every other month.  For any newbies out there - I know pics & measurements are hard in the beginning but I highly recommend doing it!  Look at this success!

                         12/18/10               2/20/11               4/20/11

butt                      49.0"                     44.0"                  42.0"  

So, I'm another year older.  I did have a fantastic bday!  I played hooky from work so I could spend the entire day hanging out with the hubs.  He really is my favorite person in the whole world.  Gross - I know!  I travel so much that I just cherish the little moments with him.  We golfed in the morning (it was freezing!!! I was wrapped up in a blanket in the golf cart).  We both totally suck - even after lessons last year - but its still always fun.  Went for some hot chocolate to warm up & then played cards for a few hours til the kid came home from school.   I always work late (or now, at the gym late) so I wanted to go to a happy hour.  It may not sound like much but it was a treat for me to hang out at a local pub, have a few drinks, eat dinner & still be home around 8pm.
