Weekly Weigh In: Week 13

                     Weight:  178.6 lbs            Loss: 2.5 lbs

To say I've been busy would be an understatement, so it is nice to see I can still lose weight without being 100% dedicated to it. I am smart enough to know this won't always be the case.

I went to the dr this week to get some allergy meds because lately I have been wanting to scratch my eyes out at night! I randomly mentioned a pain in right side and she ordered me up an ultra sound to check on my gallbladder. My mom had to have hers removed after her weight loss surgery. I hope I don't have to go there. We will see what the ultra sound says.

"Can I still workout?"
"It would be ok for you to take a week off of working out until we know more"
(in almost hysterics) "I can't do that! Tonight is Zumba!"
(blank stares)

I still went to Zumba, but I didn't work out Tues or Wed, and went to Zumba last night and will go in the morning. I figure 3 quality workouts are better than little 20 min everyday. Plus, the pain went away, so I doubt it is anything too serious.

Best friend, Meliss comes into town tomorrow! Yippee!! She is going to the Jason Mraz concert with her hubby, but at least I will get to see her a bit. We had baby boys 2.5 months apart. We have been best friends since 2nd grade. She lives in CT so I never get to see her. We are going to see another one of our besties (another one of my bridesmaids) We have all remained close since high school graduation.There are 5 of us, which I often refer to as the FAB 5.  They are all smart, and successful and the funnest, sweetest girls! They are all SKINNY SKINNY! My friend Kari is a 0 and has never worked out a day in her life and am pretty sure her main diet is break n bake cookies and beer. lol. Jovonna is a size 2 at the most even after having a baby. Sarah and Diana are 6's. Meliss is struggling getting her weight under wraps after having her baby in Feb, but  at her biggest was a 16 and has always been able to loose weight FAST!  Diana is getting married in June and DUDE....I am gonna look awesome!

I owe this blog a better picture, but you can prob see in my face at least I've lost weight. A lot of my clothes are just falling off of me. I seriously have no butt. Never in my life has my butt been so small, even at 150 lbs. So... it's kind weird. Now I just need this belly to follow suit!

Happy Freakin Friday Ladies!!
