Yep, that’s right! I have hit the 80 pound weight loss mark! Woohoo!

I lost 2 more pounds since last week putting me at 288 so that’s 80 pounds gone…only 20 until the 100 pound mark! My husband mentioned paying for me to get highlights in my hair when I get there and I think that would be a perfect reward. New body, new hairdo, right? 🙂 I can’t wait!

In the meantime, today was the first day of the week long annual book sale at the library and I got a ton of books and about 9 magazines for $8…pretty good deal, right? 🙂 Thinking about going back tomorrow sometime to look some more because it was pretty crowded today and there were still a lot of books in boxes that I couldn’t get to. Thursday evening, the library opens up a second room for members (which I am) with even more books for mainly $1 each with 1st edition books at $3 and some others for mixed prices, like coffee table books and rare books, but I usually stick with the $1 ones.

I also went by a local consignment store called “A Hot Mess” that I mentioned the other day winning a prize from. I went and picked it up and I decided to show pictures of what I won here!

I know I added more stuff than weight loss talk, but hey….sometimes there’s not much to say on that topic! See you next week with another update! Have a great day!


  1. Yay, weight loss, prizes and new books 🙂 you are having a good week and you deserve it. If you see it as making up for some less good times you’ve had recently then you won’t be looking over your shoulder for something bad to balance it like you mentioned the other day. I used to think like that so I know where you’re coming from. Just enjoy the good times while you have them. I love bringing home a pile of new second hand books 🙂


    1. Yes, it has been a great week so far!
      I love that idea of looking at the bad in the past and then the good now instead of looking forward to the next bad…I never considered that this really good time is coming after some tougher times so maybe this good is really just balancing all the bad of the past..I like that! 🙂
