Another one of my favorites from Saturday night. These cougars were absolutely gorgeous. Scary, but gorgeous, and secured behind thick glass walls. I can't say that I love the fact that animals are caged for our viewing pleasure, but I have faith that the zoo treats them well.
Today is day 27. I am down 1 pound from the initial weigh in. At this point, I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I'm not going to lose any real weight before the wedding. All I can do is eat healthy and exercise and be happy with the way I am. Because really, I'm not fat and I need to get over this obsession with my weight. I realized yesterday that my entire life revolves around the food I eat and that is so incredibly unhealthy. Especially since diagnosis, I'm more aware than ever of the food that I put in my body. I'm looking forward to going for my appointment tomorrow and talking with the doc about what we're going to do next.
I signed up yesterday to volunteer at this years Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. I have walked in it before but I prefer to volunteer so that's what I'm doing. My aunt continues to fight her battle against breast cancer and so far she's doing great.
My Great-Grandmother, Grandmother, Great Aunt Bernie and Great Aunt Vicki this summer. Vicki is the one with breast cancer. <3
