I won tickets from Harrah’s Casino to see the Bret Michaels concert tomorrow night!!!! Woo-Hoo. I am going! It is about 90 miles away. Gonna play a lil poker while there. I love poker!!
Dreams Do Come True.
It has been 16 years since we saw him in concert.. also been 16 years since we have attend ANY Rock Concert. Rosie and I are so excited!
I am back to the weight I was the last time I went to a big concert.
I have been wearing heels, stockings, and short dresses for the past week. Got my sexy legs back. WOO-HOO!
I am so grateful for God helping me lose weight and for the doctors and surgeons who assisted me along the way. Still would like to lose 50+ lbs. God willing.
I have completed a mani and pedi. I used Opi’s Happy Anniversary.
Been shaved, plucked and even pruned today. LOL!
Still unsure what I am gonna wear to the show. I do know I am wearing black fishnet stockings and either knee-high black leather boots or perhaps black 3″ wedge sandals. Did a test run with the new sandals today as we ran errands and was pleasantly surprised that I could walk in them comfortably. One of my goals after gastric bypass was to be able to wear shoes with over an 1″ heel and I now am up to 3″…. gonna try even higher ones when I find a pair on sale.
I have been taking care of my skin, hair, nails, and body much better over the last few months. My fave moisturizer is butter flavored crisco. YES! Crisco. I use it over my entire face and body. A few times a week I put it on my feet and then cover that up with a thick layer of vaseline and heavy socks and sleep in it. My feet are totally different now… in a positive way. Smooth instead of crusty and calloused. WINNING! LOL. Also been using grape seed and apricot oil on my face, hair and body on occasion.
I chopped off 12″ of my hair last April…. I had already cut a few inches prior to that. Since then my hair has grown about 12″. Not bad at all. Better than average. So pleased.
My current nape hair is 12″. From widows peak to the back length is 22″ now. I was almost 32″ in Sept 2009. Getting there! After Gastric Bypass I lost about 30% of my hair so I chopped it off. It is now growing back thicker and curlier. :-)

I have purchased some Human Hair extensions from EBAY and Hair Sisters. I have a sets in 24″, 20″, 18″, 12″ and 8″. I adore my extensions. They are so comfy and looks like my hair did prior to the chop. Since the extensions are human hair I can color and curl them as I wish. I also have a few synthetic pieces, a bun, a ponytail, a 3/4 wig and others… I wore the bun today and it looked spectacular. So quick and easy to use. I had slept in grape seed oil on my hair last night to condition it and didn’t have time to rinse it out… So I gathered it all up in a ponytail and slapped a synthetic hair bun and I was ready to go.
My hair and Rosie’s hair is rolled in Pillow Curlers tonight. Great comfy and long lasting curls.
Tomorrow I will prolly wear my 20″ 100% human hair extensions…. curled…. with a half pouf aka beehive aka a snookie on top.
My current hair color is dark brown almost black. I get all sorts of compliments on it. I adore all the male attention I am receiving but it still scares me.
The last 5 pics showcase my real hair. Rest of the pix have hair extensions in them.
I have found some terrific bargains on clothes this month online and in stores. Got around 10 dresses. All were at least 75% off. Sizes range from a 10 to a 14. Two years ago I was wearing a 24-to-28 in jeans. Currently I am wearing size 12 jeans… but probably can get into size 10 STRETCH denims with lycra.
Just remembered I got a short black mini-skirt last week… gonna go find it and I may wear that tomorrow. Hmmm…. so many decisions. I do know I am gonna wear a dark smokey eye, cat eye liner, pink blush and glittery fuchsia lips. I might even wear a corset with that skirt.
Sleep? I wish I could sleep well EVERY night. Some nights I sleep 2 hours , next night I will sleep 12 hours! Dr Ahmed put me on restoril. My sleep study showed mild sleep apnea. I quit breathing 6 times an hour which is not bad enough for a cpap machine. I found out I also snored 41 times a night. not bad considering some people snore 1000′s of times nightly. Dr wants me to stay on Trazodone, and TRY restoril. I honestly think restoril keeps me awake some nights. Only taking trazodone tonight. He also has me on a low dose xanax and a high dose lortab. He said that along with my fibromyalgia I have chronic fatigue syndrome. UGH!
I am enjoying driving more and more but Still HATE it. Gonna try get my drivers license in the next few months. Wish me luck!
Looks like Rosie won’t be having Gastric Bypass till June or so. Waiting on some of her docs to send it their paperwork. Rosie has lost a clothing size already and can prolly even get a smaller size than that now. So proud of her. Love her so much.
Gonna call Dr Boyce in regards to a tummy tuck. Really have way too much excess skin flab in my tummy area. .. always have carried the majority of my weight in my stomach region.
Sugar is doing well. Still off my insulin pump. I am taking 1.2 mg of Victoza daily and 2 Glipizide daily. So far so good.
Gonna put on a top coat of GELOUS. The best top coat and nail strengthener I have ever found. LOVE IT!
I have very puny, weak and pale eyelashes & eyebrows. Always have… Last week I started using ARDELL LASH AND BROW EXCEL I also started using ARDELL BROW & LASH GROWTH ACCELERATOR yesterday. I have noticed a major change already. Longer, Stronger, Thicker and Darker lashes and brows. Joyous! Still gonna wear fake eyelashes to the Bret Michaels Concert tomorrow.
Still need to do a facial prior to going to bed. Already exfoliated. Still need to tone with witch hazel, use clindamycin gel or desonide gel, and then moisturize and then use my Ardell Lash and Brow Growth Serums.
It takes a lot of time. effort and money to look this cheap. LOL!
Gonna go read the news and gossip online .
Sending love, prayers, and support to everyone especially my friend Dreama and her family.
