Had to revise my weight golas, as losing 11 lbs in 1 week is no longer realistic.

Shoveling went a long way to getting me exercise this weekend though :)

Mel - do you need to revise your goals at all? Hows it cookin good lookin?

You all know how I love the dress shopping...

but this time I had a really good excuse! Everything today was cancelled due to weather, including Mel coming to Rochester and trying on dresses for/with me!

These are the two I liked. #1 has the option of customizing the color of the straps and the 3 tiers of material at the neckline.

#2 was very comfortable, has a flattering neckline and the beads on the bust are just a bit of dazzle, which I liked.

Option #1: After seeing the other two we decided that the clear beads at the bottom of the top was not quite enough.
Option #2) We would have this in a tea length skirt, they would all have to be hemmed anywyas, so may as well hem to tea length!
Option #3) pair this with a satin or that other fabric skirt, also tea length. The skirt and top main color would be the medium green and the sash would be a lighter green (lettuce I believe it was called).

I have yet to ask for prices on any of these... that will be step 2.

Dress Shopping Saturday Feb 17th

Thanks Karen for coming dress shopping with me and for remembering to bring a camera (at the last second).

I will post my 2 favorite dresses and the top 3 bridesmaid dresses (picture them all in a medium green color).

For my health I have started up with working out again. 1/2 hour on the treadmill tonight with hand weights :) Starting slowly as its been a few months.

Weekend Calorie Fest

I ate a lot this weekend, and was too busy to get much in for exercise.

My weight loss has completely stagnated and while I eat a tinsy bit healthier than I did before, I still do not stop myself from multiple days of overindulgence.

Last week I tried a 10 min of exercise per day, and then forgot to keep track of walks and such by about Thursday when my busy weekend was begining.

Not proposing any solutions yet, or new goals, but Just Telling The World.

Mel, how is your 'birthday indulgence' recovery plan? Have you got one? Step 1 was to make me take home the leftover pizza and the ice cream cake.

Someone Else's Wedding Blog

I had fun reading about the origins of tradition, throwing shoes at the bride and groom... replaced with throwing confetti, good trade....
