I saw 196 on the scale this morning! I am a sloooooooow loser but it makes me very, very happy that the first number of my weight has been consistently a "1" for awhile now.
I had a wonderful weekend. My little sister Dana and brother-in-law Mike were in town. I haven't seen them since I was in Boston in March and we had a great time together. Dana is a vegetarian and a serious foodie, so we made an incredible dinner together at my parents' house last night - cold avocado soup, black bean and sweet potato cakes, cumin-lime quinoa with zucchini and corn, sweet pickled jalapenos, beef fajitas for the meat eaters, grilled corn, and Mike's amazing sangria. I didn't eat a ton, but I tasted everything except the grilled corn. The black bean cakes were amazing and I plan to make a large batch of them for the freezer.
Mike made me smile when we were talking about how I want to have another wedding so I can wear a nice dress and look good, and my husband joked that he's already had two weddings and he's done with that unless I want to have a tacky Vegas wedding. Mike suggested that I just have pictures of myself taken in front of a green screen and Photoshopping myself into the old wedding pictures. He then said, "But the only problem is that there will be a big former-Stephanie sized hole in the old pictures since you're half the size you used to be, so that won't really work too well, will it?"
