New York State Of Mind

Well, the time has come and at 3am this morning, my friend David will be picking me up to head to the airport with several friends so we can go to New York! I am SO FRIGGIN’ EXCITED!!! I won’t be blogging on Tuesday as I will be frolicking around Greenwich Village but I will return Friday to post pictures of my adventures. My blog will be watered down the next couple of weeks as I travel but I’ll get one in the next two Friday’s. I weighed this morning and I was down another 1.3 pounds which brings my total loss to 104.9! I exceeded my mini goal by almost 3 pounds which means I am feeling great about indulging the next week and a half. My next mini-goal will have me down about 8 more pounds by August 12th. That gives me almost 2 months to lose 8 pounds plus recover from my upcoming New York, Nashville and New Orleans trips so I think I can do it if I work hard while I’m not travelling.

Since I won’t be here Sunday for Father’s Day, I wanted to make sure and give a shout out to my dad. We kind of celebrated a bit last week and I gave him a card, mug and made him caramel corn and this dessert he really likes but I know he wishes I could be there on Sunday. I love you dad and I hope you have a great Father’s Day! You are the best!!!

I started the trend last week of posting old vs. new pictures of myself on Friday to serve as a reminder that even if I’m having a bad day or feeling like I can’t tell I’ve lost weight…that I have and I should be proud. Those out there who are losing should be proud too! I hope these pictures come off inspirational and not annoying and again, if anyone ever has any pictures to share…send ‘em my way at and I’ll post them if you want. :)

I know that I am falling down on my weight loss theme and I promise I will get back on track in a couple weeks but if you don’t want to see pictures of lavish food, I’d wait a couple weeks before reading as I may be posting pictures that you won’t want to see next week.

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun filled and safe weekend/week. I hope the same for myself and if you all could be sending well wishes for my safe departure and arrival, that would be fantastic. Happy Birthday David! I can’t wait to celebrate your 50th in the BIG APPLE!

Talk with you soon!


“I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind.” New York State Of Mind-Billy Joel
