28 Bug Bites.

At least.

I'm covered in bug bites. I have no idea where I was around a ton of mosquitos or red ants or biting microscopic midgets, but I'm covered in miserable, itchy bites. It's worse than when I went camping, you guys. I don't know how this happened.

I'm going to have to go get a giant bottle of clear nail polish. (the "venom" in mosquito bites itches because it interacts with oxygen, so if you seal off the bite with clear nail polish, it won't itch anymore.)

On a side note, I'm down to 196.4 today. That means I've lost roughly 3 pounds over the last 10 days. That feels like a small loss to me, though 10 days is one week plus 3 days. So.. I don't know. I guess I'm just getting used to the faster weight loss and if it slows down I start to freak out. :/~

Oh! And being down to 196.4 means that I only have 5.4 pounds left to lose until I'm no longer OBESE, but am only "OVERWEIGHT." (I'm 5'7")

I'm heading to Grand Junction in a few hours to see my Aunt and Uncle until Friday. They do have internet access, but I'm not sure how much I'll be blogging. It's a very "back to nature" type of retreat for me, so you might not hear from me for a few days unless something happens and I NEED to tell you all. My Uncle is a crazy good cook though, so that might happen. He's told me he will be working up a great low fat fish dish for me, so I hope he does that and does NOT make his famous crepes or anything else like that.

Here in South LA, bug bites are all too common. I never get use to them though. In the summer, I am inside before dark. Those little bastards can do some damage. 'Specially those 'squitos! Have a blast in Grand Junction, low fata fish sounds like a hit!

I'm not really a 'outdoors' girl, but I'm sure you'll have fun...just hopefully less bug bites!

I think a 3 pound loss is fantastic! And I think you win today for most compelling post title :)

Leaving Obese City is huge, but it sounds like you're already packing your bags for the trip.

Keep up the good work!

Have fun on your trip - family time is always great. Oh, and congratulations on your loss. You may find it discouraging, but I thought it was pretty awesome.
