Wow, thanks, ladies!!!! What a great way to start the day with all your compliments.
I understand I don't actually need to lose my 3 - 5 lbs more, but the thing is the bulk of my clothes fit best at that weight since that's what I weighed when I bought them. It's free to lose 5 lbs, but super expensive to replace all my clothes so there's the bottom line. Thanks for the encouragement and support!
Speaking of cheap dresses, mm, I have bought quite a few formal dresses at consignment shops, one for my brother's black tie wedding in San Francisco. I paid $40. I'm SURE that dress cost $$$$ for whoever bought it first (and probably wore it once). If you go to a shop in a ritzy town where people generally spend a LOT on clothes, the dress selection will be of that caliber, too. If you start looking weekly, I bet you'll find something lovely for under $50 (maybe FAR under) for the wedding.
Pingo, I wish we had a Costco around here. Our local yocal grocery store does rotisserie chickens, but they are brined to the point that they are inedible. I've talked to them, but apparently DH and I are in the minority thinking they are disgustingly salty. So, if we are to have roasted chix, I've got to do it. No problem; I enjoyed myself yesterday. Today, I'll be getting all the meat off and then making a stock for soup.
Supposed to be warm today - woo hoo! Gracie and I will definitely be taking advantage since I took a 2 day break.
Enjoy the Springlike day, everyone, and thanks, again for all the kind words.
