So last Thursday night my cousin and I went to Atlanta for the Jingle Jam concert! I dont know if any of yall are familiar with that but every year they have this concert in Atlanta and there are about six bands that perform! This year they had Jordin Sparks, Leona Lewis, Cobra Starship, Justin Bieber, The Fray and OwlCity :) They are were really good but my two favorite were probably Justin Bieber and Jordin Sparks! I actually had seen and met Jordin about two years ago when she won American Idol! She's my girl! My cousin and I went to the American Idol concert and got backstage passes after the show! We met the top 10 that year and had like sit down, one-on-one conversations with all of them. I could totally make a blog just on that experience...it was so much fun! But anyways, got a little side tracked...but the Jingle Jam was super fun!! We spent the night in Atlanta and went shopping all day Friday! Long story short, I spent way too much money especially right before Christmas, but we had a great time :)
Then last night I went to my cousin's ornament shower. My cousin Lindsay, who is pretty much like a sister to me, is getting married in March and all her showers have begun! She had one a few weeks ago with her fiancee's side of the family and last night the whole wedding party got together for an ornament shower :) There was tons of food, fellowship and fun! I felt like I didnt eat too much although I did try a little bit of everything! I will post some pictures for yall!
As for weight loss, I have been pretty steady around 231 pounds for the past week! I can tell that I have very little restriction. Bread still gives me some restriction so I try to stay away from thick bread. But other than that I feel like I can eat a horse at times! I go back for my second fill December 30th so I am looking forward to that! I feel like I am wanting to snack between my meals which I havent done since surgery but I am fighting the urge not to. I have been doing good about just drinking water and eating smaller portions but I definitely am needing more restriction to help me with this. I wanted to have lost 30 pounds by Christmas but I doubt I will be down 4 pounds in the next 3 days haha :)
So here are some pictures from last nights ornament shower! Hope you enjoy!!
