This is my last Final 15 weigh in before my body lift surgery on Tuesday. My goal was to be 72.5 kilos (159.5lbs) for surgery, but that pesky surgeon moved my date forward by two and a half weeks, making it impossible for me to get to goal without hacking off a limb. Oh well, I am just happy to be seeing a 73 on the scale and I am really pleased that I made it so close to my goal.

Another goal I didn't meet was fitting into the dress that I bought for the Derby Day races tomorrow. God damn I hate not being able to fit into clothes from normal sized shops!!! Don't worry, I won't be going naked like I previously threatened, I scrounged around and borrowed a dress from my mum (that sounds a little sad). I had some other dresses I could wear, but the theme for Derby Day is black and white and I am not one to break a fashion rule!

The above photo is the fascinator that I wanted to buy for Derby Day... but it was hundreds of dollars so I bought an el cheapo from Target for $30 instead. I figure that is money I saved to place some bets on the horse! I happen to live right near the race track, so we are having brunch and mimosas at my place while we get glammed up. I have put AJ on stand-by to serve us drinks and help curl our hair. I did ask him to dress as a topless waiter too but he really wasn't into that.

I had a bit of a beautifying incident late last week when I went to a famous brow bar for a wax and they accidentally tore off all my skin under my eyebrows. Holy crap did that hurt! By the time it scabbed up I looked like I two split eyelids from a bar fight. Thank goodness it has pretty much healed by now and it at least coverable by make up!

OK, now I just have to pray that I manage to get through the day without getting sunburnt, blisters on my feet or passing out from too much champagne.


  1. Oh that's terrible! I get mine waxed every 3 weeks and I've never known that happen to anyone. I hope they gave you something pretty amazing as an apology. xx

  2. Oh my goodness, i'm sure I know the brow bar you went to. Same thing happened to me after driving all the way from Geelong just for the experience.

  3. OMG they better not have charged you!!!!!!!!!! I've not been but think I know where you are talking about. I think I'll stick to lovely waxing lady who has a salon at home!!!

    Enjoy the races & all the very best of luck (not that you need it!!!! for next week!!! xoxoxo

  4. That is exactly why I pluck now. That happened to me several years back, it was horrible!! Good luck on Tuesday!!
