I've hit a MILESTONE... and private concert with Los Lonely Boys... WOW!

Boy oh BOY, do I have a milestone to share with you today!  BUT FIRST... Jeff and I went out on an unexpected date last night!  Jeff won tickets to a private listener concert at Valley View Casino. 

His favorite station, KPRI, put on an AMAZINGLY DECADENT event for around 200 listeners.  We were greeted at the door with flowing champagne and wonderful appetizers.  The private room was at the corner of the hotel... up on a hill... with walls of windows that showed off the beauty of Northern San Diego... beautiful skies with remnant clouds casting delightful shadows on the hills... and the most wonderful sunset... as we were sitting 10 feet away from...

I didn't know a lot about this band, with the exception of this song that I love.  THEY... WERE... FANTASTIC!  Their live performance was perfection... every chord... every harmony... they were fun with the crowd and their music was GREAT!  They have a new album out and I will be buying it this week!!!

With all the weight that I've lost, our 21-year-old daughter, Jessica, and friend, Mindy, helped me get dressed for the concert.  (They decided that my first outfit was too frumpy and I needed to spice it up... be my husband's girlfriend... and all that!)  I have to admit, they spiced me up and I felt confident and sexy in this outfit... oh... and JEFF... LOVED... IT!!!  (tee, hee, hee!)

NOW... I know what you are here for... DRUM ROLL PLEASE...  In the past week, I lost 2.2 pounds... bringing my 10 week total to... 
216.6 pounds

218.8 pounds

20.4 pounds!!! 
WOOO HOOOO!  Even better... when I hit 214, I WILL NO LONGER BE OBESE...
just severely overweight (according to my Body Mass Index!) 
 Ha, ha, ha... who ever thought I would be sharing my weight with the world,
my BMI and the fact that I'm SO EXCITED for this next milestone!!!

On a friend side note... there are so many of you following along and becoming your husband's girlfriends!!!  CONGRATS to Gloria, who has just crossed over into ONE-derland (she is under 200 pounds!)  And friend Emily, who is down 16 pounds in the past 2 months... and looking GREAT, I must add!!!  Keep up the AWESOME and INSPIRING work!  And keep the comments coming... public or private emails, I LOVE to hear how you are doing!   MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!!!

You look gorgeous! It is easy to forget how you look after you have lost the weight you were working on. I've lost 52 lbs. recently and I forget almost daily that I can (and should) dress accordingly. Your outfit rocks! Glad to see that you showed off what you've worked so hard for! Way to go!

Dave... we sure do have a TON to celebrate! See you in a few weeks... Anna can't wait to color eggs with Shaney! Melissa... 52 POUNDS! You ROCK STAR, YOU!!! All I can say is that size 16 feels MUCH better than almost 20... and that 14 is right around the corner!!! Catherine... THANK YOU! And you know what is so cute... my husband is becoming my boyfriend again, too!!! ;-)

Tracey, you look fab! Congrats on over 20 lbs lost! You are such an inspiration to me! I am fighting for every ounce lost, but it will be worth it in the end! Thanks for the shout out! Down to 198 from 211. 13 lost, hoping for that 20 before Mother's Day. {wink}
