This week has been an exciting and great week for me. First off, my best friend Sarah K. had a beautiful baby girl on Saturday, April 20. She is just so beautiful and sweet and perfect. I am so happy for Sarah and her husband Rob. They deserve all the happiness in the world!

Second good thing is my amazing weight loss this week. I lost exactly 4 lbs which is HUGE for me. I was so shocked, especially since I have not had the time to walk as much. I’m thrilled with that number. I hope I can keep it up. I am the lowest I’ve been since right after high school. Probably around 2005 (I graduated in 2004). And I am so close to Onderland, I can smell victory! 🙂 I’m hoping by week 8 I reach it.

And the third thing… Tomorrow I go for my 7 week check up to see if I am cleared to do more exercises than just walk. I’m sure I’ll be ok. I ran a little the other day and was so proud of myself but this spring time allergy season is killing me. I may have to take my runs in doors until the pollen season has died down.

Oh yea! I went to target and bought a zip-up athletic jacket/shirt and it was in a size LARGE!!! Holy cow! Never did I think I’d see that size again in my adult life. Eeeek! I’m so excited.
