Bucket List – I Can Finally Say It!!



Of course, like 19 and 25 lbs on my last attempt, and my recent 30 lbs this must be celebrated with a fish!  This fish weighs exactly 50 lbs 2 oz, which is how much I have lost as of this morning!  What a relief!  I was beginning to think that pound was never going to go.

You know what else weighs 50 lbs?


The average Siberian Husky. How freakin’ beautiful are they?  Gawd…

Almost this many sticks of butter.  This is 208 sticks, I have lost 200 sticks worth of butter… imagine carrying that up three flights of stairs to your apartment!  That’s a lot of butter!

You get the point.

Now I just have to do it twice more…  Oh how daunting!  I so look forward to the day I get to post that 150 pound fish though.  For now, I’ll make the push to 60.  Baby steps!

Now I get to order my Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock t-shirt for my 50 lb reward to myself!  I can’t wait!  I feel like I’ve been waiting forever!  The t-shirt is from The Big Bang Theory if you don’t know that already.  Which you should, by the way… if you read my blog I’ve already told you numerous times to watch it.  Pay attention, people!

P.S. Just realized this was on my 101 List too!
