Damn cats.

So one of my cats chewed up the tiny little cord for the Wii remote sensor. I hadn't weighed myself in awhile anyways, then when I finally decided to, I couldn't. During this time I was traveling each weekend, visited the state fair (mmm, fried pickles....) and was just overall uneasy about the result on my weight. I tried weighing myself on an old scale we had lying around, but the result was completely unreliable...First it told me I lost a pound, then 20 seconds later I tried again and it told me I gained 11. Next try it told me I gained 5. So...obviously not accurate in the least.

This weekend, we finally replaced our Wii remote sensor and I just now weighed in for the first time in a couple of weeks. The result? Unfortunately I did not lose any weight, BUT the good new is that I haven't gained either! I am thrilled about that, and now I am going to work hard this week to kickstart the weight loss again. It was a rough month with my schedule being different and being out of town every single weekend (often to places where I was more likely to eat crappy).

In other news, I finally took the plunge and got my hair cut and colored. It was way overdue! I lost about 7-8 inches of hair and the color went from fairly flat, boring ash brownish or dark dishwater blondish (hard to describe, but not the most beautiful color whatever it was) to multi dimensional with chunky high lights and low lights. Here is the result (this is also a good pic of my face after 43 lb weight loss):

For comparison, below is a pic of me "before". But with my hair up (which is how I always ended up wearing it when it was long). This pic was probably taken fall of 2010. It isn't the best pic of my face and it's a little blurry, but it's what I have right now.

  1. Who are you? Your face is so long now. I wouldn't recognize you if I walked by you in town
