Weight Watcher Saturday and Big Birthday Bash Tomorrow For Me!!!

I lost 1.6 pounds this week for a total of 77 pounds. Hoorah!!! I’m wearing my new capris that I bought at the fat ladies’ store. I had no clue what size I was anymore. I was a size 32 jeans and now I am in a size 26.

The kids are putting on a big birthday cookout for me tomorrow. They’ve invited about 30 people. I didn’t know I knew that many people. My birthday is actually Monday but obviously Sunday is a better day for a party. The weather is supposed to be good. I wish my son could come but he has to work and he probably couldn’t afford the gas all the way from Buffalo and back. I haven’t seen him since Christmas and I miss him so much.


I have to clean my bedroom, make potato salad I can’t eat, do the dishes and clean off the kitchen counters and my chores will be done. Tomorrow I expect to be waited on. No chores. I will take lots of photos which I will post on Monday. I doubt I will post tomorrow unless I do drunk blogging in the late evening. I’ve never done drunk blogging. Could be interesting.

I’m saving all my extra weight watcher points for tomorrow which means I will have to be extra good the rest of the week.

    Way to go on the WW loss! How cool you are wearing capris. I will do that as soon as I make myself a pair. LOL. I hope you have a great party tomorrow. Looking forward to tons of pics!

    Have a ball tomorrow at the party! I don’t think I know that many people either. And like Little Miss said, take some pics for us!

    Joan, that is such wonderful news about your tremendous weight loss. Keep it going, girl. I wish I could have plastic surgery. It’s so phony and superficial and if it didn’t cost so much money, I would do it instantly. So much for growing old gracefully. [screw that]

    happy birthday too

    Excellent job on the weight loss. I still haven’t dropped enough weight to get down to a lower size (*sigh*), but I’m still working on it. Hope you have a great party and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

    Yay you, Joan, for the continued weight loss and getting into those pants!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Enjoy the cookout (I’m thinking that is the equivalent to your BBQ/barbeque/barby?)

    Well, I just don’t believe this. Actually I do. My birthday is June 8. I like the little gemini graphic. We twins seem to be able to get on well with one another. And with the virgos (my wife is a virgo). Not that I really believe in this astrology crap or anything. But on the dual-minded indecisiveness that description fits me to a T.

    People tell me I’m indecisive, but I don’t know …

    Happy birthday Joan and congrats on the 77lbs! 😀

    @ Little Miss
    I can’t believe I have capris and will actually wear them without feeling self conscious. Oh, you sewer. I wish I Iiked sewing. Oh lord, I think I just called you a septic system. Oh, you sew person. Oh I know, seamstress. I will put on lots of pics.

    @ birdpress
    I feel like I’ve been on the phone talking to you all day. It’s wicked cool. There will be lots of pics. I may even try video.

    @ Becky
    I know I’ll never have plastic surgery but I can pretend, can’t I? I’m thinking more in the lines of tape for a facelift.

    Well, it only took me 15 months because I’m slow at everything I do. But WTF, I’m doing it.

    @ shornsheep

    Cookout = Barby. I’m excited for tomorrow and thanks for the birthday well wisher. I love my new capris. There will be photos.

    @ David
    I don’t really believe in all the astrology stuff. I am more into astronomy. But it’s cool that are birthdays are a day apart. What are you doing for yours?
    “Please tell me I’m indecisive, but I don’t know…” Now that is funny.
    Thanks for the congrats. I need all the support I can get.

    @ Kaylee
    Thank you Kaylee. How are things going? We all want to know what you cooked when you got home?

    @ Peter
    Thanks Peter!! I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I am making the potato salad as I type. It’s my own special recipe that everyone loves but I can’t have any because it has so much fucking fat in it. I have to make some fucking fat free version of it. Yuck!!!

    J to the H! Joan Harvest ~ Have a wonderful Birthday weekend with your family and friends; wish I could be there to see you in all your glory 😉 You are a sexy bitch now, you don’t have to wait until you “loose all your weight”- I’m proud of your weight loss, you are amazing but you don’t have to be skinny to be a sexy bitch! I love you just the way you are (song by Billy Joel). Keep going girl! You are doing great! Happy pre-b-day!

    Your celebration sounds fantastic, I wish I could be there. And I’m really shocked that you (and David) are Geminis because I’m usually scared of Gemini people. Seriously…I am shocked at this revelation. I would have pegged you as Aquarius. This changes everything.

    Happy birthday!!

    I’ve been lurking your blog and enjoying it for weeks but I couldn’t let your birthday go by without a comment. I wish you another year of success and happiness in all you do!

    Oh please, I want to read some drunk blogging! I once said that I feel ever so Ernest Hemingwayish after a few bourbons and I think some of my better posts were written while I was a little tipsy! Have tons of fun at your party!!

    Geminis RULE! Hey, Wendy, I’m a Gemini, too!

    @ Sueellen
    I don’t think I’m going to do as well at WW tomorrow because I got carried away with all the birthday food.

    @ thebeadden

    I did stay away from the potato salad but that night after everyone left I think I had a few bites of stuff I shouldn’t have. I should have had them take their food home with them or had my daughter lock it in her room.

    I’ll have to try drunk blogging when I am actually awake

    @ JavaQueen

    I don’t know about being a sexy bitch yet . Bitch, yes but I’m working on the sexy part.

    @ Hannah

    I was surprised at how many sizes I went down on.

    @ Odette
    I was sorry my son couldn’t be there. I miss him a lot.

    @ Carol

    Come lurk some more. I love lurkers. And Thanks for the kind wishes. I am late on my responses to this post. My birthday really through me off my routine.

    @ mrsvierkant
    I don’t think WW will go so well tomorrow. Too much birthday celebrating this week.

    @ Laura
    I’ll have to drunk blog when I’m drunk and not tired.

    @ CuriousC

    Oh God, we’re going to give Wendy a stroke– another Gemini.

    @ Red

    Yea, my boy is a cutie. The girls love him because he has a sensitive side.
