Fun,Fun,Fun and Weight Loss

Boy oh boy what a great weekend we had! I'm still laughing! Saturday we attended a benefit for the Canadian Cancer Society in a country dance bar called the Honky Tonk. Money was raised by selling raffle tickets, entrance fee including a spaghetti dinner and you could pay a sherriff to send someone in jail for 2 minutes. That was really fun! Of course you would try to be covert so the future jailee was unaware....So a lot of hijinxs followed!

One of the raffles was a bird house similar to this....I'm glad I didn't win it.... 

Our dance teacher was really proud that half the money raised from the jail came from her students (we were around 15). Of course between jail sentences we would dance our feet off!

Yesterday SD came to visit. We took her to our dance class-it was really hard to dance with her watching but I kept reminding myself that I danced in front of 150-200 people the night before so....And we went for good old french fries..Do you realize how long it was since I had french fries???

Speaking of which: On January 18th  embarked on a journey to get rid of the bulge. It's been a parade of low fat, low carb, high protein foods....So far I've lost more than 4 of these:

Or you could say I've lost more than one of these....

Let's not talk about Peanut's weight....ok?

It's basically the half way point. Now I'm starting the transition to the GI diet which will give me more options. I was really excited to read I would be able to eat beans and carrots. OMG! I was so giddy when I read that!!!  And the recipes look SOOOOO good! I can't wait to dig in!

Have a great week!
