Finding the New Me

I had LapBand surgery in January, 2008 and am well on my way to finding the new me! I feel great and look even better :) I have lost about 90 pounds and have about 30 to go to goal! My life has taken many turns over this last year and I am so happy with the direction it is heading in - not only am I looking and feeling better physically but I am also happier and more emotionally stable! I am dating a wonderful guy right now who likes me for who I am and doesn't care how much I weigh. We ...

We have a great time together and I am enjoying getting to know him - as I have had to get to know myself!

Fitness Minutes: 17,305

My Goals:
I want to learn how to eat better, lose some weight in a healthy manner, and in general become more healthy.

My Program:
I am still learning to use my band as a tool. I know that I have to watch what and how much goes into my mouth. I have to make the right choices and do what is necessary to keep the weight off.

Personal Information:
I have been divorced for almost 3 years now (wow! I can't believe it's been that long)... I have recently started dating a really great guy and am loving being with someone who cares for me just as I am without qualifications...

Other Information:
I like to read, do hand-crafts, sew, garden, and learn new things. I have started archery as a way to tone my arms and whatever else it will help :) And my new BF likes to hike in the woods so we are doing a more of that - I even bought some hiking boots so I am getting more prepared for hitting the great outdoors!

Thank you for your comment about not being able to have children. When my sister told me she was pregnant I congratulated her and hung up the phone and cried. Yes I know adoption is an answer but never being able to be pregnant few understand. I wish you well on your journey! emoticon

Thanks for leaving a comment on my knitting blog. I admire anyone who can crochet as I am trying to teach myself. I'm making some progress, but think knitting will always seem more natural to me.

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

When I first read this it was at a time when it really hit home.
I ran across it again on another website. I feel like I would like to share it with my friends.
