And the winner is....





That says Diane. I typed up the names of everyone who commented and put them in a bowl and my son Devon chose this one. It pays to de-lurk! I love that Diane won! She commented yesterday and I went over to her blog and found out some amazing things about her! You should all click over and check her out!

Diane, e-mail me at jolene593 (at) msn (dot) com and send me your mailing address and I will send you the gift card! OR come to lunch at Costa Vida on Friday!! It would be fun to meet you!

I want to announce another win - a small personal victory. I hit the 40 pounds lost today! I was so happy! And no, I did not go to In-N-Out to celebrate - I came home and ate a salad with chicken breast and homemade hummus. I am saving my extra calories for Friday! This is all going to sound so silly I know but I feel like I have a waist again. I can put my hands on my hips and feel hips - not just stomach. I'm loving it!

I'm thinking about buying this dress as a reward or maybe this one (it is quite a bit cheaper). I don't typically wear a lot of prints but I really like this one and this one. The good thing is - I know what shoes I would wear with each one - I just can't decide. Please vote!

Congrats on the 4o lbs. I want the recipe for your hummus. I Love BFG's Hummus and tried making my own but YUCK. So please share your recipe with me.

And my pick for the dress would be #4. I do like #s 1 & 3 but definitely not #2. Solid color lightweight fabrics tend to show the unflattering things we are trying to hide! I always grab something like that at the store to try on and then my self esteem is shot afterwards. Good luck!

I love #1 and #4. There's not many things that are better than a great black dress. But I love the colors of the last one. Congrats!!

They are all cute, I like #4 the best. I like that website, I may go back and look through it. It has been fun visiting your blog lately! Way to go on losing weight! See you tonight. I have a few more pages to read in that book!! :)

Ok I REALLY love the first one, but if it's too pricey I also like the yellow and brown one. (I think it's the 4th one.) And way to go on the 40lbs. Wow!

You look fantastic Jolene- way to go!! Your blog looks great too... it's been awhile since I've visited blogs.You should've announced this at our book club on Wed., we could've done a little victory dance - it could have been just like camp! :)

deana said...

Oh... and Happy Birthday my friend! See you later today!

Dangit. I missed the giveaway and your party (party might still be going on as I comment). Going out of town with no computer is a bad idea.

BTW, you are looking GOOD and FOXY! INNOUT burgers aren't so bad for you if you don't eat the fries. I plan one a week. Your weight loss has inspired me. I have lost 7 pounds! (I thought 10 would be good, but turns out my skinny pants still don't fit, so I need to keep going. I was apparently chubbier than I suspected.)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Can't wait to see you in either hot dress #'s 1,2,3 or 4. You deserve all of them. Hope your day is fun filled yet relaxing. (haha)

Happy Happy Birthday, Hope your "last" birthday is amazing! I know Costa Vidas was great. I love that place.
