Hi banded bloggers! How are you? How's things?

I am here. I am recovering after a crazy weekend of fun. I am ready to get back in the saddle tomorrow, that is Fo. Sho.

Friday was my cousin's wedding -- it was a crazy good time. We even went out after, which is practically unheard of for me these days. Saturday we went to see Hunger Games and then had an amazing mexican dinner at a place we've never been to before. Brisket tacos! Yum. We will be going back! Today I went to a dear friend's bridal shower, and that was a fun time too. Now I have my kidlets back from my in-laws and hubs and I are getting back into the grind. I have my meals all planned for tomorrow, and I have my workouts planned for the week too. Cuz... failing to plan is planning to fail! Dontcha know.

So, I've been in a serious contemplation phase these last few weeks. It's May, you know. And that means that, sitting at 207, I've been officially maintaining this weight for a WHOLE YEAR. I will be honest with you. It's been fairly easy to maintain here. Like, I'm pretty sure I could hang here for a looooong time without too much effort.



I'm not done. I'm not! I don't want to be done yet! And don't give me any BS about how the bulk of your weight loss happens the first 18 months after surgery because the bulk of mine didn't happen until 3 years out! So, yes, I know I can do this.

So. Time for Action phase. I've got a food plan, I've got a workout plan, I've got you guys, and, most of all, I have a hubby who is supportive of my current mania. It MUST happen. I will MAKE it happen.

First goal: my birthday is in three weeks. I will be 202 by then or there will be no birthday cake. You guys know this girl likes her cake. And especially my birthday cake! So that's it. 202 or no cake.

I didn't realize we were Gemini sisters! My b-day is the 5th.

How did you like the Hunger Games? Did you read the book? I loved it.

You can make your goal! I believe in you!

I love you for calling me out on my BS comment last time. You know I was just trying to be an enabler! But we're going to start e-mailing when we have bad cravings, so we're going to nip the 200's in the bud.

I think it's a great idea to not reward yourself if you've not met your goal by your birthday. I think I shall do the same. If I'm not back to about 162, I won't have any of the delicious pound cake I'm already planning in my mind for my birthday.

Let's keep each other accountable! :)
