In Seattle

Just popping on to say Hi real quick! I am up in Seattle right now, until this Wednesday, then it is back to the rat race for one more month...then AHHHHH surgery! It's really coming up.

I am having a great time out here visiting with my brother-in-law and his boyfriend. They are absolutely amazing. I have been trying foods I have never tried before, and doing lots of walking around the city. So far I haven't lost weight, but I also haven't gained anything either, hehe.

I feel like this really is my tummy's last hurrah, with all the cool stuff and all the delicious Seattle coffee that I have been trying. Despite the fact that I wished I was tinier before we came here I am still going to cherish all the memories, pics and vids we've taken here.

I told Robert that they will also make great before pics too hehe. Maybe after goal we can come back here to visit again. Despite all the damn hills and inclines (they really give your calves a workout!) I would totally love to move out here one day. Definitely wouldn't happen any time soon...but maybe one day. It's a beautiful city. I included a pic in front of Pike's Market. I had some amazing clam chowder from there! Can you believe I have never had clam chowder before? hehe. By the way, that is my hubby in the grey hoodie.

Welcome to Seattle! Glad you are having a great visit! Also good that we had a break in the weather yesterday, it was a lovely evening, too.

Ah, yes, the hills. Ack, they're everywhere. And it's "Pike Place Market," or "the Market" if you want to talk like a local. ;) Never "Pike's Market!" I'm glad you're getting a good tour of the city, it is a wonderful place!

Also, if you want a bird's eye view of the city while you're downtown, the Columbia Center (tallest building in Seattle) has an observation deck you can visit for a few dollars. Or my building, the second tallest, just across the street, is a public building. You can ride up to the 40th floor and there are fantastic views. You can go into any of the conference rooms that are empty and check out the surrounding views. Have a wonderful visit! I'm so glad you are enjoying it.

Hope you are having a GREAT trip. I went to Hawaii about 2 months before being sleeved and I enjoyed every single one of those macadamia nuts. I only gained 2lbs on the trip (shocking actually.) YES!! Definitely take lots of BEFORE pictures. I thought I had a lot but really I don' enjoy and take pictures! Next time you go back you are bound to be skinnier!

Julie, LOL I actually meant to put Pike Place Market. I think i was just exhausted from all the sight-seeing. We didnt get a chance to do Columbia tower but still had a lot of fun!

Sheila, I think I may have gained that much, but that's it. I actually checked my brother-in-law's scale every few days to keep myself in check but did indulge here and there. I also got some cool stuff I am going to share in my next vlog. I love Seattle, but I have to say I am glad to be back home with my furbabies :D
