Yep, week 87. I started out in March of 2013 and I am still at it - trying to reach goal. I have 30 and change to go to reach my goal. I sure look unhappy in that picture on the left. I remember frowning as I was going to go for my first swim that morning and donning a swimsuit in public was a bit daunting. Couldn't get into the water fast enough.
Fall trip to Monterey

For Eddie's birthday, we took a trip (on an extreme budget) to Monterey.

This photo was posted on Facebook and I got the OK to use it here. I love the composition!
In Search of Cranberry Splash
Posted October 16, 2014
It's that time of year again...where I obsess over where to find my favorite soft drink - Sierra Mist Diet Cranberry Splash. I went to the where to buy and this is what comes up? Since when do the 49ers run a store at their HQ?

Saw this on Facebook and had to laugh....but you know what, I wanted a bouncy house at my 50th birthday, but finances didn't allow.
Sittin' on a Sulcatta

We went to visit the Castro Valley Turtle & Tortoise rescue where I adopted Augustus, back in June. No every day one gets to sit on a 200 lb tortoise!
Been a While..

I can't remember the last time I rode Thor on the freeway. It felt good!
My Weight Deletion Continues
Posted July 6, 2014
I continue my "weight Deletion" journey - I just ran across this pool photo - I believe it was taken on my birthday last year, which is just 51 weeks ago today. My face was much more full - so I grabbed my phone and did a quick selfie. It's a little grainy but gets the point across (it's sort of dark in my office). Today I put on a pair of size 10 cargo shorts - they are snug but I'M IN THEM!

Brutus looks after Augustus like a guardian. It is very cute. If I am looking for Augustus, Brutus is almost always in the vicinity.

I have always wanted a CA Desert tortoise. My uncle had one and I saved and saved and by the time I had enough money, the sale was outlawed of CA Desert Tortoises. I recently decided to look into adoption as that is legal.
Rock Star for a Day

The annual C.O.W. fest at Westover winery was a blast! 45 pounds ago, you wouldn't have found me up on the stage, let alone DANCING!
Summer Tasteful Shoe Pledge
Posted May 7, 2014
With summer just around the corner, I went and got pedicured today after shamefully wearing socks during last week's heatwave. I was a mess and I won't inflict that upon the world. With that, I bring you the summer shoe pledge!

Made a decision to cut it off. I am amazed at how curly my hair is! It didn't get curly until about 6 years ago. I kept having to cut it - a lot of it - to keep up with the damage the chlorine was doing.
My face is starting to look like my face again
Posted February 4, 2014
I know I've been posting a lot about my lifestyle change...I'm just so happy I did it. I could 'should' all over myself and say I should have started this time last year...

I think when they grow up I won't be able to tell them apart!
