puffy pictures


I am wearing jeans for the first time since surgery and I had a BATH today! AH, to feel human again!!

Here are some pics of me today. These are my size 6 jeans (man am I ever glad I didn't get rid of my 6s yet!! I hope to shrink back to my 4s soon, but in the meantime, these come in handy).

I'm definitely puffier than I would like to be but hey - I'm not going to bitch. A size 6 is still freakin' awesome. I expect when it's all said and done, my 4s will slip on just fine. I'm basically eating P3 style and counting calories so I don't have an unpleasant surprise when the swelling is gone. I've not ordered my HCG yet, but will, just in cases. If I need to, I'll start a new round this fall.

Speaking of 6s, I am so happy that I have 4 pair of fancy pants that I'd had in a box to donate. Tuesday, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon  will officially announce his candidacy for Utah Governor. He's the one (if you've followed this blog) who had a meet and greet in my home when he was running for re-election as Mayor. I think he is one of the most impressive politicians of our time. His cousin is Howard Dean, by the way.

All that aside, I've been working along side another activist in drafting him as a candidate for Governor via a facebook page, and yesterday it was confirmed that he is throwing his hat in the ring! I am so thrilled. I was told to be available when the official announcement happens so I went through those pants and found just the outfit that will be perfect. It was even a little loose. :)

Have a great weekend! I'm going to check to see what YOU'RE up to now... :)

Wow! You look mah-velous! You sexy thang- I'll just bet Mr. helderheid is very happy with your new figure!!! Isn't it funny how, with just taking a bath, you start to feel a bit more human again? I'm so glad you got to do that today.

BIG congratulations on Corroon's candidacy! I know you put a lot of hard work and energy into getting him on the ticket-- it all paid off!!

I can tell you're feeling a bit better today. Hugs to you, my friend!
