228.2 and I still feel great.
So last night I went clothes shopping with JoLynn, Scott and Adam. Vegas is coming up in a few days, and I’ve lost 37ish pounds since I bought any clothes so I was in great need. Anyway, we went to Plato’s Closet where nothing fit me, but Scott found some stuff and then we ended up at The Jones Store. They had all kinds of stuff on sale and I picked up several nice, button down shirts for under $10. Got a bunch of new jeans too, since all the ones I had looked like clown pants on me. All in all I ended up spending like $320 which is probably more than I’ve ever spent on clothes in a single year, let alone a single night.
So, yea, Vegas! Fazed @ Vegas starts for us Kansas City folk next Tuesday night and goes through Sunday. Gonna be a good, good time. Seems like the turnout isn’t as great this year, but that’s okay. There were so many people last year that it was difficult to keep up with everyone. This year we’ve got a party suite for everyone to hang out in which should make finding everyone a lot easier. At least we won’t have to coordinate via mobile phone the entire time.
Diet continues to go well. I have finally recovered from the weekend and the weight is starting to drop again. All the booze from the party last weekend totally screwed me for the first part of this week. I didn’t gain, but I wasn’t losing either.
The big secret from the other day is that it looks like the company where I work is going to hire me for a permanent position. I’m a contractor right now. That’s pretty good news, and comes as a welcome relief from worrying about extending my contract every three months.
