I finally did it! I now weight 178lbs! While I won’t too much about my weight today, all I can say is the greatest reward is when you are going shopping for new clothes. You know all the shirts or pants you liked but couldn’t buy them as they didn’t fit well on you? Well I went shopping a few weeks ago and I was able to buy anything I liked. That had an amazing impact on my self esteem but a terrific impact on my credit card… I must confess; I am a “under control” shopaholic! When I get in a store, I take everything I feel like and I don’t even look at the price… this sometimes gives be headaches 😉 But the feeling of buying is so much fun!

This is a very big weekend for our online company as we are making important changes. We are officially buying another PF Blog: Gather Little By Little! This is quite a challenge as GLBL is one of the most respected PF Blog in the blogosphere. So as of Monday morning, you will be able to read me on The Financial Blogger and Gather Little By Little! I really like GLBL style and I don’t intend to change it too much. Hence, you will probably learn a new perspective about me that was not explored through my main blog.

I have 6 weeks left before I start my 4 days a week schedule at my day job. I just can wait to see how it will go 😉 In the meantime, I am starting to think about my vacation coming in August… We rent a vacation property for a week and we will spend the other week at home, enjoying the pool and going to the zoo. This will be a lot of fun 😀

Here are a few great articles for this weekend:
