Determination

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Well I just want to say I'm done being a fat girl! emoticon I know that it's said girls with curves are happier, but I have to say that i'm not! I don't like having to special order bra's because my bust is so much larger than the average. I hate it that when I stand in the mirror I can see all the flaws I have and most are ones i've inflicted on myself.
At one time I was thin and sexy. I had curves in a good way, I was fit, and active. I didn't have to watch closely what I ate because I burned those cal. Now I watch and pray not to be going over. While my son was in school i was doing a 12 mile bike ride. emoticon Now I'm unable to do that so now I've got to get myself into another routine. If i'm going to lose the weight and then maintain, i'm going to need to find my inner strength. Somewhere in there is the real me. Now i've just gotta pull her back out.... emoticon

    You sound very determined and I admire that! If not now, when, eh? You are totally worth the effort that you are putting into yourself. Your health, your physical well-being is of utmost importance.

Being a twin.

Sunday, August 24, 2008

O.k. so I was asked about being a twin, and I was having problems figuring out why I was being asked. Then it hit me. Goofy me, I have a habit of calling my baby sister my twin. It's really a running family joke all because of me being a brat back in school. I was in 5th grade when my teacher told me that I had to write about my family. I thought that it was boring. so me, starting young at writing, decided to write about my fantasy of my family. (yes my mind was making up all sorts of stories when I was young) I wrote a story about how my mother had problems with conception, she had endometriosis, pollops, and scaring on her lining, plus the fact that she only had one egg due to these medical problems. Then I went into the story of our split in the zygote form, and explained that it could only be done due to we had been fraternal twins. I explained about how the cells split and at what level this procedure had been taken. You ask where this would come into play with a 5th grader and her it is, Basically I loved to read and had gotten in to my dad's medical school books. (he was in the middle of nursing school at the time.)

The story goes that my parents conceived us and my mother went through a trial program where she underwent a procedure to cryogenically freeze one of the two fertilized eggs. Since my sister and I were fraternal twins and not identical twins. At this Point I put in a bunch of technical info. This was to account for the 10 year age gap between us. My teacher not dumb asked why my brother was only 4 years my younger and I explained that he was called mommy's little surprise. (I'm guessing this was embarrassing to her so she didn't push this point) To say the least my teacher thought it was the coolest thing and I got an A.

I was so happy about the A I took it home and showed my mom. She read the paper, that I excelled at she called the teacher and explained that it was a great paper but it was a work of fiction. This is the reason to that I have a habit of saying she is my twin. We still look alike but we are not really twins. Sometimes I feel like we are though. I'll be calling her and she be thinking about it. Who knows what God really has in mind. Just one of those things.

So there is my story and I'm sticking to it, LOL! emoticon

    Lori you are a terrific person, and your imagination is definitely a factor in that. I am in awe that you were able to come up with so much at such a young age, but not surprised.

Overtime

Thursday, July 24, 2008

I have lunch from the church today, so I will probably skip dinner. but eat an extra snack. Today I'm working overtime so I'll be sitting from 6am - 530pm// then off to pick up the boys (James and ty) and on to home for laundry and dishes. It seems to have piled up through out the week. Thursday is my magical day to get it done since my husbands at work and Jamers has his friend to entertain him.
If I get the chance then I'll work on some weeds in my garden. It's been rainy and so I know they'll be trying to pop up. I got a new job. It starts in 2 weeks. Instead of doing the back end for the airlines I'll be working the front end at the airport. The GREAT thing is no more sitting for 8 hours a day. It's going to make me so sore. I'll be ticket counter, Gate and luggage. This means that I'll be so sore the first few days. I'm actually happy since I want to lose the weight but I know I'm laZy.

    I'm so happy for you with your new job! I forgot to tell you that I have a very dear friend that works at the airport; his name is Andrew Raines, and he lost so much weight that he was featured on a men's magazine. I'll forward you the link when I get home.
