Good Times with more to come! Some Pics

Last weekend was probably one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. Start to finish is was awesome. The St Patty's parade I went to was amazing. I definitely drank way to much though. lol

Since losing all this weight, I am a totally different person. Especially with my confidence and how I carry myself. I don't know if it's because I'm much thinner or because of how I carry myself now, but for the first time in a LONG time men were actually hitting on me! Buying me drinks, chatting me up. One guy practically never left my side the entire night. It was flattering but also so foreign to me. I am not used to it. On guy actually asked me to go home with him that night!

I said no of course. I will never be that kind of person to sleep with random people. I even sang Karaoke that night! haha. I mean I was totally gone by that point, but even in the past I would have never done that.

It's just so great now. I feel so much lighter, and not physically though. I mean I am so much more relaxed now. Whenever I used to go out, I would be awkward. And worried about finding a place to sit, and thinking about when I can finally go home, and if I will be able to pass by people to go to the bathroom. Now I just go with the flow. I don't over analyze situations anymore and it's just so freeing.

This weekend I have a 5K to look forward to. Hoping to get under 30 finally! And then I'm going out to dinner with some friends and then going out for another friends' birthday. In the past I would have never loaded up my day with so much activity. Now I love it! I am looking forward to just so much more good times. I cannot wait for this summer, I have a feeling it's going to be a blast!

Out at the bar.

Singing Karaoke! lol

Enjoy all the attention - you worked your ass off (no pun intended) for it.
