A good friend of ours visited this weekend. We dragged him all over the place, including the new Evergreen Space Museum in McMinnville.

So I just had to do a layout really quick with some of my photos:

I'll get my photos up on Flickr in the next day or two, then post a link to the set.

Good news!

I did my first weigh in after being on the plan for a week, and I lost 4.2 lbs. WOOHOO!

Well, it's been quite an eventful month or so.

The highlights:

On July 4th, my father-in-law passed away. He had congestive heart failure and Type 2 diabetes, as well as a few other things, but started having some gastrointestinal internal bleeding on July 3rd. I did not have a happy 4th - I spent most of it in the Providence Portland Medical ER or Cardiac unit. He passed away at 6:35 p.m. Pacific time. I pretty much stayed in my MIL's house for the next 5 days, finally getting "home" (across the Metro are) yesterday. Sleeping in your own bed is such a pleasure.

Today, I converted my Weight Watchers Online account to a WW Monthly Pass account, so I can attend meetings. I find myself needing the support group atmosphere, as well as the accountability (one of my coworkers is doing it with me).
