The Road to Healthier, Happier Me!

I am a 39 year old mom, friend and girlfriend. My daughter is 18 and in her first year of college. She has blossomed and it is time for me to focus on myself so that I can too!

At this point I have lost 44 lbs, gained it back and have since re-lost that 44 and an additional 12. Frustrating since had I not lost that 44 and still lost the additional 56 that I have lost, I would be at goal. Such is life, I did gain it back so I am not at goal but I am more than halfway there and ...

Frustrating since had I not lost that 44 and still lost the additional 56 that I have lost, I would be at goal. Such is life, I did gain it back so I am not at goal but I am more than halfway there and that is a hell of a thing! I am proud of myself and sometimes a lost trying to figure out who this person is that is so much smaller than I was.

Losing weight is a rewarding but the journey can certainly be strange and surreal at times. Even that, you just have to keep plugging along. You become reacquainted with yourself soon enough.

Now, onto the last 1/3 of my goal and to health, the ultimate reward!

I am so glad you were scanned and now know what is causing the pain! Now you have a plan for healing. It sounds like a lot of change for diet but you've lost 50+lbs girl! You can handle diet changes. :)

I hope you feel better soon! emoticon emoticon

Aww man. Sorry work has been a bear for you. I hope it is balancing out now.

That sounds like a great vacation! I know how much you loved going there last time :)

We are taking a long weekend around the 4th of July. That one will be a staycation and we will be looking for ways to do kayaking and fishing.

Over Labor Day we'll be at the Penny Arcade Expo - Gaming Convention in Seattle for 4-5 days. We go every year so we are really excited about that!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I haven't taken measurements since last year. *Wannh wannh* BUT I am going to tomorrow when I weigh in. So I'll know next month if there are inches gone. :)

How are you doing? I hope work isn't so busy now. Do you have a summer vacation planned?

All the best!
