It's Go Time!

Too long a story. I was hit by a car once. Gained way too much weight. Kept gaining. Jan 6, 2009 I was 394 and began my weight loss journey. By Nov 7, 2009 I had lost 100lbs and by May 2010 I had lost 125 lbs. Unfortunately life took over. We bought a money-pit of a house and had another child. I am a stay at home Dad. The stress got to me and now on Jan 6, 2013 I am at my heaviest, 4lbs more then in 2009, now at 398lbs. Obviously I can do it. I have done it. And I am looking forward to getting ...

Thank you for all the support you have given me in the past and in the future as I know you will. Here I am Jan 6th 2014. Approximately 415. I don't know for sure because my scale only goes up to 400lbs.

Boo!
Ya know, I really have no idea why they started so early. They just have longer breaks now at like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter. Oh, they finish a week earlier than normal, but graduation is still a week later because of Memorial Day. Silly if you ask me.

Oh well. Hope all is going well with you! When do you leave for Panama?
Let me know what's new!

Hugs,
Beth

Hi there!
I feel ya, I've been pretty much the same way here. Well, I'm not sure I've made it 100% through one day. I'll be active all morning, eat a great breakfast and lunch, and then by mid afternoon I start the self destruction process. I think some of it is boredom. I mean, yes, I have a house to clean and Carly to take care of, but it's not as challenging as what I've been use to. Just taking time to adjust, I guess. Honestly, I'm ready to get back to work, just waiting for the right position (and pay) to come along.
As for your question on why I started my family so early, well it wasn't exactly planned that way. I had Em just after my 17th birthday. Because I had her, I thought I needed to get married and start a family. So right after my 21st I had Chad. Then that relationship ended when he was around 2 1/2.
When I met my now husband of 6 years, he didn't have children, and wanted one of his own, hence Preston :-)
And since I was home for at least 2 more years, we decided to have one last child (fingers crossed for a girl) and hence we have miss Carly.
There, that should fill you in, LOL!

I get why you're not so excited about Panama. Sounds like this trip must have been totally K's idea? Well, since it's already gonna happen, put on a happy face and try to make the best of it. Yes, it's a 3rd world country, but it could be a great experience for the kids, ya know? That's the optimist in me, what can I say.

Yesterday Preston went under IV sedation to have 6 cavities filled and crowned. He did great and went back to school this morning. He's a trooper.

Alright, that's today's novel. Hope you have a great weekend, any plans? We have off school Monday, so we're having a 3 day weekend. Nothing really planned. College football Saturday (go Ohio State!) and of course Steelers on Sunday. Love this time of year for that reason. And our first preseason hockey game was the other night...won't be much longer!

Take care!!
Hugs,
Beth
