So my new number is 213.2!Can you believe I weighed 221.8 only 2 weeks ago?!?!?!?!?!? YAY! Speaking of being a nerd, my daughter (formerly an anti-nerd) has fully embraced her inner nerd over the last month or so. We started playing Dungeons and Dragons (I know! How nerdy!) because it was a dream of mine since Junior High when the boys in my neighborhood wouldn't let me play (pouts). I was chatting with a new co-worker a couple of months ago and he mentioned that he plays and I begged (BEGGED) him to let me play. He explained to me that established groups don't typicaly like to take on newbies (double pout), but he said he would DM (be the Dungeon Master for) my very own group. So, I had to recruit people to do it with me, becuase, really, there aren't that many people around clamoring to play D&D when you're 32 years old...(not, at least, in my experience). This meant that I had to coerce Forest and Katie to play with me. Katie's friend Grace was ALL FOR IT (she has a Geek Streak, luckily) and they invited their friend Mitch from school. So that is our little band of nerds :-)
Then there's Star Trek. Katie was formerly very dismissive of Star Trek...until she saw the new movie and became smitten with Spock (how cute is that!?). Now she's seen the movie twice, is listening to the audiobook, begged me to go to Burger King so she could get a Star Trek action figure (she got Spock!), and made Spock her computer backdrop. Then, yesterday, she watched 5 episodes of The Big Bang Theory we had saved on the DVR. I think the nerd transformation is complete, don't you?
Anyway, 2.2 pounds is my progress for the week. I don't think that quite merits a reverse belly pic, but when I get to my 5% goal (only 3 more pounds to go!) I am rewarding myself with my very first pedicure and I will post a picture of the 210 pound me with pretty toes (er...at least with painted toes...it would take more than a pedicure to actually make them pretty). Caio, bellas!!!
