    Last Minute Musings

    I'm all packed and mostly ready to go to Vegas. Somehow I ended up with the tiny suitcase and Mr. Sign got the large one. This only drives my point home that he is high maintenance.

    I've always been an excellent packer. When I was in high school, I made a trip to Europe. One of the chaperons told us to lay all of our clothes out on the bed before packing them. She said to then only take half of what you think you need. That has always worked for me. That was a priceless little gem that has helped me many times.

    My feet have been giving me grief. It seems that I'm walking so much more than I ever did (5-7 miles a day), that the skin is wearing off my feet. I walk on the balls of my feet and they are peeling and painful. I bought some shoe inserts to help relieve the pressure. I just hope my feet hold out for this trip.

    I'm also hoping to lose weight while I'm gone. I need to lose one more pound to have lost a total of 150 pounds. That is almost unfathomable. I've lost 39% of my body weight and am 73% to my goal. I have 55 pounds more to go. I've lost an average of 3.4 pounds a week since October. Of course this has slowed down greatly in the last couple of months. It's all good!

    Speaking of weight loss, I've put up a poll over in the side bar about whether or not you want to hear about my weight loss. Let me know what you really think.

    Well, I'll be back with hopefully many great pictures and stories. But remember, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

    Here's a picture my daughter took of me with her cell phone so you don't forget what I look like, LMAO!

    Now just hold on a minute, missy! What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, unless.......you are a blogger. Then you have to spill it. Don't look at me. I didn't make it up. It's blogger rules.

    That's awful about your feet. You need to figure out a way heal those puppies. I'm not even going to tell you to be sure you have walking shoes cause I know you're smart enough to have already done that. Which leaves me with no advice. Imagine!

    To lose over 3 pounds a week is mind boggling to me. And you know part of the reason your numbers are slowing down has to be because your gaining muscle mass. those walks really build up your leg muscles.

    Ouch, you're feet sound like they hurt so much!! Be sure to doctor them up with Neosporin or something similar every night so that you don't get them infected. Huge hugs to you!!

    Have an awesome time on your trip!! Enjoy!! With all the walking you've been doing, you'll be prepped for sure!! :)

    And me, personally, I love hearing about your weight loss.

    We'll miss you!

    If you are anything like me, you don't wear the best support shoes. I live in flip flops and sandals. If I walk to much in them; my feet are horrible.

    Maybe get a cute little pair of walking shoes (keds type?) for the trip?

    You look GREAT! Have fun.

    Gurl. . . baby your feet. . . . soak em. . . buy some scrubs. . . put socks on at night with either vasoline or a thick lotion.
    Have fun in Vegas. . .

    If you do not have a pair of walking shoes obviously get a pair. If you do then maybe you can get some jelly inserts ro something that will help to some extent. Good luck on that because exercise is so important.

    Boy you look better and better every day. And only a hop skip and a jump from 150. You realize that is probably as much or more than most women should weigh (just a guess when you consider all those women at 105-120). You lost a whole person.

    Please do not stop writing about your weight loss effort. I love to hear about it. I love to see the results are I am sure you are an inspiration to many a person. I love to hear anything you write about (especially casino trips and...) but it just would not be the same without you stories about losing weight. Please, please, please do not stop.

    Have a blast in Vegas and take care of those tootsies.
