Becoming the Pin-Up Girl

I'm on a journey from obesity to health.. and I'm hoping to reveal my inner Pin-Up Girl along the way ;-)

OH Baby, it's cold outside...

...and I'm feeling ill. I wish that I could have stayed in my warm bed with the covers pulled up tight around me. I'm not sure what's up with Phyllis - I've been severely nauseous for about four days now. I spent three straight hours on Sunday with dry heaves, and then another hour last night. My whole torso (especially my neck and back) hurts.. and I can't keep any of my pain meds down. I have a feeling that it's the pain meds that have irritated my stomach to begin with. I hope Phyllis calms down soon .. I'm supposed to help my Mom cook in two days.

In other news, I've decided to attend an OH (ObesityHelp) event on Saturday, December 6, at the Marriott in San Ramon, CA. I haven't been on the OH site in over a year, but when I found out that two fellow blogsisters, Melting Mama and Eggface, were going to be there, I decided to give it a try. I could definitely use some support and renewed motivation - especially since I have a dress to buy soon! If you're in my neck of the woods, you should think about attending. You can even get a $15 discount off the ticket price - just enter "GOLDEN08" for reduced price tickets.

He popped the question...

and I said "YES!"

It's official.. Chris and I are engaged. I've been walking around all day like a big dork with a cheesy grin on my face. I'm just so happy and excited.. I don't know how I'm going to make it through this day of work.

It was sweet and simple - he surprised me at work with flowers and chocolate covered almonds. And from the silly look on his face, I knew what was up. I told him "not here" and I started to blush. So we went for a walk by my office. He sat me down on the marble steps of the Federal Reserve Bank.. he got down on one knee.. and he sweetly asked me to marry him. I will remember the look in his eyes for the rest of my life.

There's no date yet. I'm just excited to have made it this far. For now, I'm content in using the word "fiancee" and showing off my ring. Oh yeah - the ring! Here's a pic:

I love it - I can't stop looking at it. I can't stop thinking about our future. I can't stop smiling!
