My SO arrives on Tuesday! I just finished baking oatmeal cinnamon cookies for him, so the house smells great. I had a very small one just to check as it is a new recipe for me. Otherwise, I have to share. As of today, I have lost thirty pounds! I am so excited for him to see me. Since he left, I’ve lost another ten or so and started back at the gym. Gotta love strenght training.
His email today was so sweet. Talked about how much he can’t wait to see me and how much he’s looking forward to a nice dinner out (the food on the ship is iffy). He also asked me many questions about my opinions on Catholicism. I have been visiting his church with him and attending mass on my own while he’s gone. I know he wants me to convert, so I figure he wants to know if I am willing. I think it’s sweet he’s trying to get an idea before he comes home.

Oh my gosh, SO exciting!
First of all, congrats on the weight loss!!!! How did you do it? How often did you work out and how did you change your diet? (lol sorry, always looking for new ideas)
Second, I love cinnamon cookies! Snickerdoodles are my favorite!!!!! yummy.
Third, I bet you will have a new sparkly on your finger very, very soon!
Cheers to waiting and weight loss!

Oh, the sparkly may take some time.
As far as the weight, promise not to laugh, I got hypnotized. I eat only occasional sugary things (aside from fig newtons) and I eat a lot of fruit. I don’t snack. I only recently kicked in with the gym, but I try to go everyday, but that doesn’t happen all the time.

Haha! Thats funny! I totally believe in hypnotism because i got hypnotized in vegas on one of those shows. People dont believe me but it was weird… I knew what I was doing, but it was like I didnt care what anyone thought!
Maybe I should try that, it seems like a cool helper hehe

I am giddy now. It’s only 26 hours or so until he is home. I don’t hear from him the days he is traveling because he is flying from Africa to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to DC. It tends to make for two very long days, but his last email indicated that he is so excited to see me soon. I am just thrilled.
I also took the diamonds I have for my engagement ring to the jewelry store today and left them in their care. That way, when he decides he’s ready to get the ring, he doesn’t have to get the diamonds from me and it can be a surprise.
Gosh I hope that he doesn’t wait forever.
