It has been an interesting week around here this week. It has been plagued with restless sleep, neck pain, dental work, and the first full week of water aerobics since mid-December. It has also been sprinkled with comforts - connecting again with DH, heated rice packs, flannel sock monkey PJs, handknit socks, good books, and good music.

It has also been a week of triumph. While I've been loosing weight (slowly) since March it hasn't felt very real as there has been no acquisition of better fitting clothes. However, this week new jeans arrived and next week I should also have some new pants arriving. Then, today I went to Longmont to exchange a sweater my mom had given me for Christmas that was not my style and sized for me 30 pounds ago. I came home with another pair of pants and two great sweaters! Nevertheless it has been one looooong week!

Now, this weekend I have things to look forward to - tonight we'll be sharing bowls of chilli and movie(s) with a few friends. Tomorrow I go to a late matinee of Memoirs of a Geisha followed by sushi at what may be the last stop on our Sushi Tour of Fort Collins (though there is rumor of a new or soon opening sushi restaurant). Then Sunday evening we'll be gathering at a friend's house for a pot luck taco bar to celebrate all the January birthdays in our social circle.

Huge congratulations on the weight loss! I'm so happy for you and so jealous! But much more happy! :)

Thanks! It hasn't been fast (only 35 pounds since March), but when all of a sudden you are no longer drowning in your clothes it seems like some stuff happened overnight, LOL! But, it has all been a pretty gradual lifestyle change so I'm feel pretty confident that it can be continued to my goal (another 35 pounds and I'll pretty happy) and maintained. Mostly it has just been water aerobics and being mindful of what I eat moreso than really dieting per se.

I *love* that icon, LOL!

I've been on again/off again with the dieting and right now I'm so disgusted that I'm on again from sheer desperation. I'm back on my stationary bike, 3x a day for 10 minutes each time for now. I will move up gradually. I love that you lost yours slowly. It's the best way. I have to not lose sight of my goals.

Glad you like the icon! It completely cracked me up, too! :)

What's your favorite sushi place thus far? I've only ever been to Jeju, Sushi by Kevin and Suehiro.

I think we've all decided that Nemo's (over in the Campus West area on Elizabeth by Panhandler's Pizza and Village Vidiot) is our favorite, though they have *no* vegetarian options or non-sushi/sashimi options so it's really only for groups where everyone likes sushi.

DH and I often go to Mt. Fuji because they have non-sushi stuff and a fair bit of vegetarian options (both sushi and non-sushi), but they aren't necessarily the best, just the most flexible and likely to appeal to a large group of people. That is where we are going tonight. *Most* of the people going have been there before, but there were a few in our group who haven't been there yet.

Sushi by Kevin has closed I think. Ashley saw a sign for a new place at Lemay and Prospect, but a search on the city restaurant inspection place showed it as having no inspection yet or even a date from which it was under current management so we decided that they may not be open just yet or they may be a bit too new. Plus, with sushi you kind of want a place with some inspection history :-) But, it is called East Moon Bistro I think.
