I Get To Meet My Bandster Friends!! :)

Scripp's Pier

Hey Ya'll,

*** Well, I have been in contact with a few of our fellow Bandster's and it looks like I will get to actually meet at least 2 of you!!  I will be meeting Tina of Losing It! in Portland, and Amanda of Amanda's Waning, in Eugene!!  And....Maybe Christine of Magic Cat Purrs.  She may be attending a Group Support Meeting while we will be in Medford over night.

So maybe.....we can meet for an early Dinner, or Drinks after.  I am still waiting to hear from her whether we will be able to meet or not.  I am so excited.  I can't wait to meet some more Bandster's!  Since most of you that I communicate with, do not live in the upper West Coast area, I didn't think that I would ever meet anyone!  But I have already met Alexis, of The Swenson Family, and now I will be meeting Tina and Amanda, and maybe...Christine!!  I almost got to meet Karin of the Lap Band Gal, but the night that we could have met, she will be in Chicago with all the BOOB'S!!!  Lucky Gal!

*** On the Band front, I am still losing....but not as fast.  I am down to 181 lbs, so hopefully....I will reach the 170's before we leave for Portland!  I need to purchase some pants and a new Bra for the smaller, Ta Ta's before our trip, but since I am still losing weight, I am going to wait until the week before we leave to make sure I purchase something that fits!  I have two practically brand new Bra's, but the Ta Ta's just swim in them, not to mention they are too loose around!!  But I am not unhappy about this, as I would like to lose even more of my Breast size.

*** Well, we finally got our Trike Wheels here, and I love the color of them!!  They are a beautiful Blue, one of my favorite colors!  We are planning on eventually painting the Bike and Trailer to match them.  Now, we just need to get them attached to the Bike, so we can practice riding with them on.  They say that it is totally different then riding a normal 2 wheeled bike, as it won't lean much.  So it rides more like a car, which is fine by me.  Now I just need learn how to ride it with all its power!  The Bike is a 2000, Gold Wing 1500.

*** We have been having a few more days of 100+ degree days!!  And us trying not to use the Air Conditioner this Summer!  But so far, we have only turned it on one day, in this latest round of heat.  So I think we are doing great!  I would not have been able to handle this Summer without Air Conditioning, before I started losing my weight.

You see, I don't sweat like you should, so my body doesn't cool itself down properly.  Which makes it easier for me to have a Heatstroke.  But this Summer, I have been able to handle the heat so much better.  I guess it is like they say.....I lost a blanket of fat in my weight loss!  I never would have believed it. 

Well, I guess I should go for now.  We need to get going, so...till next time.

Aloha My Friends  :)

That's great you get to meet a few fellow bandsters. Hopefully that make you feel less bummed about not going to Chicago - but I'm bummed I don't get to meet you. Maybe next time.

Thanks Bonnie! I wish I were going too! Maybe next time, or another year.
