What a great commentary on what sticking to it can do for anyone who does the work.  Congratulations on the wedding.  I remember the organized chaos well.

I didn't realize that a Stag & Doe is a regional thing to Southern Ontario according to Wikipedia.  It is like a big party where everyone gathers to help the wedding couple raise money to help get them started or pay for a honeymoon (or sometimes pay for the wedding).  It is for both men & women with raffles, games and penny sale, music, food and drinks.  People buy a ticket for $5 each which usually includes admission, a buffet meal (food provided by friends and relatives) and a door prize ticket.  Quite often people just buy a ticket to help out whether they are going or not, or even if they don't know the wedding couple.  Some places call it a Jack & Jill and some call it a Buck & Doe.  Friends and family try to sell as many tickets as possible to cover any out-of-pocket expenses so any profits go directly to the Bride & Groom.  It's not like a wedding or shower that you have to be invited, you can even buy a ticket at the door, the more the merrier.  It works well in small towns because everyone knows everyone and it is usually a great place to run into people you haven't seen for a while. 

My daughter and her fiance had lots of people attend and made a good chunk of money to put towards a downpayment on a house.

Hello everyone.  Sorry I haven't been around much, I have been busy enjoying life and haven't had much time for sitting at the computer lately.  I am still following the FTS lifestyle and eating low carb.  It has become an everyday way of life for me. 

Since I last posted my daughter got married in June.  The wedding was beautiful and it was so wonderful to be able to concentrate on her and not have to stress that I was not comfortable with my weight.  I will add a picture from then as well as a picture of me from mid October when I was on a winery tour in Niagara-on-the-Lake with my female family members.  Just got back from a vacation in Florida but I was always the one with the camera in my had and I guess my husband never took any pictures of me. 

I have been enjoying seeing the progress everyone has been making.  Keep it up, you are doing great.  I'm going back to work in a few weeks but will try to pop on the forum from time to time.

I agree with Shawn!

You look wonderful! :) :)
The bride is beautiful, and it's apparent where that beauty came from!

We do miss you around here.  Please do check in from time to time.
