Busy weekend. Usual gym visit then a wedding. Pastor's 20th Anniversary celebration followed by a shopping trip to the mall. Only 9 days left to DragonCon and still so much to do. Did manage to find some stockings for the SteamPunk outifit and a bullet belt for the vampire slayer. Both of which were not on my "to do" list. All the lists have gotten longer as I progressed through my preparations. My weapons are still being painted. I put on a new coat every time I think about it. Managed to find a new smaller corset for the slayer outfit and it will get here on time. Thank you, Amazon Prime.

My biggest success this weekend was my visit to the weight-loss center. A few already know this but I've been working on losing the excess (baby-weight) for the last four years. I reached my goal on Saturday with a few ounces to share. Four years ago I was 285 and though I'm a sort of tall girl (5'10") I was still very heavy and it was affect my joints especially my knees. I had doctors talking surgery and said no way so I decided to lose the weight. With the help of some very special LJ ladies I began the journey. I went from a size 22 to size 10. From 285 to 159.4 and from a 44 waist to a 30. I haven't gotten all my final measurements yet. I'm going to get those next week but what I see in the mirror is enough. I'll post some pictures after the convention of some before and after. Some are half way there but you'll get the idea.

I have a busy week ahead with work, two board meetings, gym visits and lots more prep for the con but hopefully by Saturday most of the items will be crossed off and only the packing will remain. Have a lovely week everyone no matter what is on your schedule.

One of these years you must try to find the time to go again.

Couldn't have done it without my support group. They were very much a part of it and will be for while yet. I need to maintain now.
