Kidnapped my Mom over the weekend...WATER TORTURE!!!

HA!!  NOT EXACTLY TORTURE!!  My sweet Mom lives about 3.5 hrs away and i hadn't seen her in over 3 months!  I made reservations at an AMAZING B&B...(got to check this out if you're ever in the area  www.stardustinn.com )  we had an INCREDIBLE TIME!  My Mom is 73, but about as young at heart as they come...and I surprised her with the trip to the lake, and a jet ski rental!  She tore the lake up!  We had so much fun!  A weekend of lake fun, great food, and meeting new folks...it could not have been better!  I felt so strong, and I know I'm not even back up to my old strength yet from 6 years ago before I put all of this weight back on.  I'm down 33 pounds since the lap band...but this weekend gave me such a boost of fitness motivation!  I think I'm going to start watching the scale a little closer...i've been letting it slide, and it's time to pay attention.  I've got some plans...AND rode my bike to work this morning...was running late so I rode fast!!  It was so fun...and i got there one time!!!  Wow...i'm all over the place...so here...some pics from the weekend!!
