It's taken a whole year, and I'm not to my "goal weight" yet, but I finally reached the 50 pounds lost milestone.  Thank you to Zaide for introducing us to the "Abascal Way", and to my 4 companions on the weight loss journey --- Pia, Cara, Katie and Tony have stuck with me for a year of eating nothing that was part of our previous diet (RIP pizza, fast food, sugar, flour).

This time last year, I honestly didn't believe I'd ever be able to lose a significant amount of weight.  While my knees are still achy and limit my exercise options, I am thrilled with my progress.


That's me 3rd from the left.  Sorry I don't have a better "before" picture, obviously I wasn't too eager to get my photo taken.


Oh, and the Rogaine is working!  My stylist couldn't believe how quickly my hair had grown in a month yay!

The B and Me

I have probably posted these photos before, but I came across them again today, and I love them so much I'm sharing them again:

I seem to have had a thing for plaid pants (that damn Sam Evans tore the ones in the top photo.  May he rot in hell 4EVER)  B-Z had a thing for "You Can Leave Your Hat On".
