Where Have I Been ?!?

I have been so busy since Cathy's dad died.  The past week just flew by.  We also had a wedding to go to on Saturday evening and it was beautiful. 

Underneath my boobs are starting to heal !!  Can you hear how excited I am ?!?!  I am so excited !!  My surgery was September 1 and today is Tuesday, October 19th.  I saw my surgeon today, and from last week he said that things are looking up, which I thought they were, and he told me that I don't need to come back for TWO weeks !!  I still change the dressing under both boobs 3 times a day, but the holes, sores and everything are closing and starting to look better !  My mom is kind of not questioning, but asking me why I always go to Cape every week.  Well, it is so natural for me to talk about it and how fun bra shopping is, she still doesn't know that I had my surgery.  *giggles* Which is for the best, if you know my mom.  I will be seeing her soon.  I am going to Florida for a week in November.  Won't that be a huge shocker for her that I had my breast reduction surgery ?!?!  I saw her last in July, when she had her knee replaced.

Oh guess what ?!?!?  I will need your support for this.  You are saying, now what are you doing, right ?!?!  I knew that.  haha  I am entering into a biggest loser competition.  My friend, Lauren, who I have known for a long time, is hosting a virtual biggest loser competition and  I entered in it.  There was a $10 fee and the biggest loser wins the money.  How cool is that ?!?!?  Okay, the contest runs from November 5th thru January 28th.  Right through the holidays !!!!!!  That is okay with me.  We don't have kids.  My mom isn't coming for Thanksgiving or Christmas, so we will be by ourselves.  Right now, my biggest downfall is a no sugar added apple pie that our local grocery store carries.  I can eat the whole pie !!!!  So, no more no sugar added pies at my house.  I don't have a real sweet tooth, so I am hoping that I do win.  Right now, I can't exercise because of the poor healing under my boobs.  But, as I said, things are starting to improve.  I have maintained my 200 pound weight loss for a year now.  I would love to loose 30 more pounds.  So, I need all of your support.  You want me to be the winner, right ?!?!?  I am NOT going to be on TV, but I could be the 'virtual' biggest looser in Lauren's contest !!  :)

The days are getting shorter, cooler and the leaves are turning in my neck of the woods.   Be good !!  :)
