Date Night! and Comparison Face Shot

Sept. 2009
John and Me, Jan. 2011
John and I finally had a date night.  Besides the fact that he works out of town quite a bit of the time, he works 12 hours 7 days a week when he is home.  He is leaving again on Tuesday for 6 weeks    :-(
Thankfully, we had some time to go out to dinner.  It was lovely and I wore my newest dress I bought this week.  It fit great and I felt great.


My new $15 dress from TJ MAXX
What I can't get over, is how different I look!  I had to find a comparison shot to check out the changes in my face.  I have lost my triple chin and half of my cheeks!  I am so grateful for my band.

While John is gone I will be very busy with my new real estate job.  Thank goodness.  It can get very lonely and quiet around here with just 1 person in the house.  I will continue going to the gym and my new Rottie keeps me jogging at least twice a day.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Miss Vickie

  11. Woo woo (that's me whistling like a construction worker). Hot diggity dog!! Love the dress. I have to say I love the windows in the background also. And the name John (my older son's name). Some call it plain. I call it classic, timeless, and handsome. :) My other son is Rex for what it's worth, ha!

  23. Holy hotness! You barely look like the woman in that first picture. Isn't it so much fun to be able to buy cute clothes off of a sale rack? Feeling more "normal" has also given me lots of confidence in my job. I LOVE my band, too. So happy for YOU!
