    Margaritas, Anyone?

    I had a great time this weekend. Friday night was spent at a girls' margarita party with my family. A few of us ended up spending the night. There was more food than any group of 38 could ever have eaten.

    My aunt's Chihuahua was our mascot for the evening:

    This is my aunt making the good stuff:

    My mom on the left and a friend that
    she worked with 20 years ago
    (half of my grandma is on the far left):

    My friend and her mom on the swing.
    Isn't it cute how they cross their legs the same?

    My friend (from kindergarten) me all sweaty and gross (It was 98% humidity and about 90 degrees out in my defense. A lot of jello shots later, I realize that when I'm drunk, I smile so big you can see my gums), and friend's mom.
    Can you say drunktards?

    This was taken a little earlier in the evening, but
    I still have that gum thing happening:

    The following night I got to attend a pig roast. The food was to die for. I've never seen such a spread. I ate until I nearly burst.

    If you are offended easily, don't view the picture of
    what was left of the pig:

    This is me before we left for the barbecue.

    I bought a size 12 short and a large top. This was mind blowing considering when I started this journey, I was wearing a size 36 pant (that's 11 sizes!) and a size 5X shirt. For the first time ever, I actually felt like I looked ok.

    I felt almost confident when I walked into the party even though I hardly knew anyone. No one knew my secret that I was normally the fattest person in the room.

    I was recently going through the pictures from my Michigan trip. You don't look like the same person. If I hadn't seen the pictures of you here, I wouldn't recognize you if you knocked on my door. I'm proud of you.
