This past week was fun. Well, I guess not so much the week, but the weekend. One of my best friends, Becca, got married. Yay! She married Brandon Deane in a private ceremony somewhere where there was an orchard. I say somewhere because it was, as stated, a private ceremony, with only immediate family present. The reception was a bit more public. It was held at the American Legion Hall in Madison. It was so much fun! I danced my butt off! It was hot, so I got a wee bit sweaty, but it was so much fun. There was the Chicken Dance, the Cupid Shuffle, the Electric Slide, the Cha Cha Slide, YMCA, the Twist. Everyone was hurting after the Twist! I got to wear the wrap dress that I had mentioned a while back and I got a lot of compliments on it! It was such a great time, and I didn't eat too much food. And there was A LOT of great food. There was salad, potatoes in herbed butter, chicken, prime rib, and dinner rolls. I had a good salad, with a small amount of potatoes and a piece of chicken. They also had a chocolate fondue fountain, which I had some marshmallows, pound cake, and strawberries. Then there was the cake...the CHOCOLATE cake. Beccas really likes her chocolate! (which is fine, because Brandon likes his meat, having three plates of prime rib!) The wedding cake was chocolate, with alternating layers of chocolate fudge filling and chocolate mousse filling. I had the chocolate mousse filling. I figured it'd be less damaging than fudge.
And after all this...my weight. Okay, I know I've been going up and down these past couple weeks. I've slipped and gotten back up. I've gotten back into the gym after my back injury and have kept with it (in fact, I think I may end up going on Tuesdays now, too, just to up the ante). It's been really hard going through this journey. So, prepare yourself for my weight...
235!!!! Yes! I have broken through! I know it's only one pound, but it's lower than it has been in nine weeks! Can I keep it down next week?
(P.S. Eric...Kim Berry (used to be Russell) says hi. Her husband (Todd Berry) was the one who catered)
