Ladies, ladies, ladies...and gents...I am back. The Band Goddess has returned from Mt. Olympus and she is looking something fierce. I will begin by saying that the last five weeks have been a whirlwind of activity that took me to two weddings, a baptism, and Disneyland. I coordinated several parties, winged an important speech and rode the space mountain roller coaster against my better judgement. I shuttled relatives around to all the important venues, parties and events...providing accurate and friendly translations services so as to ensure the enjoyment of all. I was a superstar! No...I was a phenomenon!! I nearly lost it a few times and even seriously contemplated self-medicating, but alas...I made it! Oh yeah...and I lost a few more pounds...sweet! In fact, at the aforementioned family wedding, I wore a stunning fitted, off the one shoulder dress that garnered me more compliments than I could have even imagined. I felt like a million bucks! I dance for 6 hours straight and even jumped higher than everyone else on the dance floor when "Jump Around" started to play. I had the most fun I've had in ages and it's in very large part due to the new found comfort I have with my slimmer, fitter body. I felt like the girl within. I was me...only now on the outside too! More and more people are starting to comment on my weight loss and it's making me feel so amazing. Deciding to take this journey was definitely the best thing I could have done for myself. I feel as though the sky has opened up, the sun has come out and I am basking in the glory that is life. A life lived as it should be...full of joy, laughter and love. I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity. I am so happy...so very happy.
Now I need to catch up on your blogs. I have really missed you guys. I can't wait to hear about all your wonderful adventures.
