my printer...& my ass

a couple people have asked about my printer/printers and here they are....they're both epson printers, I got the one on the left for christmas last year from my peeps!!! and the one on the right I have upgraded to...this summer...the only real difference is the one on the right has a spot for a CD to get pics from...but as far as printing they both rock!!! I found the epson site to show the differences http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/PictureMate/pmHome.jsp?oid=0 the one on the left is the DASH and the one on the right is the ZOOM...I got mine from my lss Scrappy Chic http://www.scrappychiclivonia.com/ ...and they even sell the refills which is nice to be able to pick up some ink..as you're scrapbook shoppin'!!!

another question asked was if I have went down any clothes sizes?? and really I have only went down about 2 sizes...when I first started I was punishing a size 34.....yikes!! and now I am comfy in a 26/28...yep...let's just get it out there...before I had sommer I was a 22/24 so that is my next goal...size wise...Shirts are a different story...I like 'em big...shirts that is......was a 6x..now I buy a 5x..but they're getting baggy...and as my daughter reminds me they look like mini dresses.....Okay now that we got the sizes out in the open...I realized that I don't think I've ever said my weight...on september 9th I weighed in...at (drumroll please) 400 pounds....and that's after losing about 15 pounds since ed passed...and as of last monday I was down to 333....don't know if it's going to move to much tonight.....but I think we are doing measurments because weve all been working out...she doesn't want us to get discouraged if the scale isn't moving...so I think they want us to see if any inches are gone...

Okay this was kinda a question and answer post...ha,ha...anymore questions? let me know...I think I am always willing to put it out there....even if it ain't cute...

Wow you go Staci, you're doing so well. And it looks like you're really down about 3 sizes maybe 4. LOL I used to work in the garment mfg industry. Keep up the good work. I really need to follow in your footsteps!

I glad to see you putting it out there...which is never easy...but if we do, others will follow the lead which is what is healthy and makes us accountable! Looking forward to your monthly photos...after a year you won't believe your progress! You are doing a great job...keep up the good work!

Wow, that looks like a great printer and you don't have to go broke to get it!! Thanks for the info. Congrats on the weight loss! You are doing soooo well. :)

I'm with Carmen, I reckon you're down 4 sizes there! You've done so well it's incredible. And putting your start weight out there is real brave. It's a scary thing. My OH doesn't even know my start weight, I'm so scared if I tell him, he'll be disgusted and leave me. Irrational I know, but the curse of a big person eh! I've got my fingers crossed that you've lost that last 3lb and you're on the Wii Fit now! Can't wait to see which games you like best, I love the skiing and hula hoop!

I so want to get one of these PictureMate printers with my Christmas cash-ola!

I am in awe of your dedication to your weight-loss! You are doing an amazing job. :)

So proud of you and your loss! It is hard to put that out there. Before you know it, you are going to be in tooterville!
My high was 277, I am now down to 165. I don't think I have weighed that since 1986, lol. And that was for only a brief second or two-- I have been over 250 most of my adult life. Keep strong-- you can do this!!! Just take in the lessons they are teaching you, keeping it off is the bigger battle if your eating habits don't change. (I have FINALLY figured this out, roflol, only took me 20 years or so) But I do find it not as difficult as I thought, as long as I stay away from fat, oil, bread cheese and sugar! I use chicken broth to cook with instead of oil, and parchment paper makes a great liner so my oatmeal pancakes don't stick to the pan-- don't even need to use any oil!
ok, well, guess I better move along to the next blog--just wanted to check in on your progress--keep it up!! :D
