It's been a long blogging time!!!

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Hello all!!!

Well to whoever looks at this lol. I haven't made a blog in like forever so it's about time. Soooo a bit on what's going on in Mel's life. I am working now full time and this is why my sparking hasn't been up to par like it has been. I am slowly getting back into my old groove though.

I must say that I am truly happy right now and things are going great. I am seeing a dietitian and I am on a low carb diet. I think it is going great and my hubby is doing it with me which is great because it's good to have his support. Also the support from the girls at my work and friends as well so I have no people trying to sabotage me.

I will make a blog every Tuesday from now on updating my weight loss. I'm also happy because I get time off in July to go see my dad and family there which will be so nice.

I must admit this diet is not easy and it does make you feel like your startving but I know this doctor knows his stuff my family doc wouldn't have sent me otherwise! It's just hard to give up everything you are use to eating I mean when I was dieting before I was still eating carbs maybe that's why it took me a year to lose 40 lbs!

Well I am very excited for this journey and hope you all stick with me through this. I will have tough days but I am soooo strong and ready for a new life for me and my family.

Oh and HAPPY Mother's Day!!!!! to all my mom's out there!!!!

I'll be posting on Tuesday to let you all know how the weigh in on Tuesday goes I'm excited!!!!!

Finally planning my wedding

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Isn't that pic lovely?? I took it at the Canadian bridal show. Me and my friend went to it and it was huge and amazing. Although I didn't get many ideas I got to see what kind of cake I like. But other than that got 4 bags of info that I still need to go through. I also got to enter contests and try some cake ( I was a good girl and only had 2).

It made me finally happy to realize that I am finally planning this and it's going to be happening. We have been engaged for 3 years so I felt like we never would do it. I am determined now though. I know I am doing everything backwards having kids then getting married but I never palled it. Most people will say what's the point now ...well I know I want to spend the rest of my life with this person and also for our kids.

I do want them to know marriage is important. Even though we are getting married after we had them all that matters is we believe in the vows of marriage. We were living our lives as if we are married so all that will be different is a piece of paper oh and I can finally buy husband cards instead of romantic cards. If my ladies who aren't married you know what I mean when looking for a bday or valentines card!

I am doing the wedding next year may and we are doing it in Niagara falls. They have awesome deals so why not?? We were going to do it this year but my dad had heart surgery so he can't afford to pitch in this is why I'm waiting. I am hoping I can at least I will lose 55 pounds by new years. So that is 1 pound a week. I think this is achievable if I stay on the focused path I'm on. I've done it before I'll do it again!!! I'd love to be in a size 12 or 11 for my wedding day.

Well the eating is going great and so is the exercise I can now get to 40 minutes on the treadmill without my shoulder hurting. Okay ya so for the past 3 weeks my shoulder has been bugging me it's not like a muscle pain like when you move it it doesn't hurt. It's inside like when I breathe I feel it so that's what worries me. I'm going to go see the doc on wed. and see what's up.

Anywho I will blog more next week I'm pretty sure I found my venue, and my ceremony now I'm looking at bouquets and bridesmaid dresses I'll post a pic up next week of the ones I chose hope you all have a great week!!!

New year ya New me!!!

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Soooo...this is a few days late ya I know so sue me lol. So I am going to say that the start to 2011 has been great in just a few days...who can say that often??? Well I look at it this way....

-I got a wonderful fiance and 2 beautiful children
-wonderful friends and family(the ones who matter)
-I am working on my health I feel healthier so that is good
-I have a roof over my head and food in my belly (not bad food though lol)
-I am starting to get my confidence back that I had before when I lost 40 pounds!
-I AM going to be a healthier and happier me!!!

So look at that what's not to be happy about? people take too many things for granted and I am no longer going to do that I am going to LIVE yes LIVE for once and not complain anymore so many people have it worse than me so I should not be whining! So I say to all of you reading this make most of what opportunities you have be daring be bold and LIVE!

So saying all that here is what is planned for the new year:

-Planning my wedding it is for may 26, 2012
-get healthier and I don't mean lose weight I mean eat right put good things in me love my body
-lose weight I am hoping in this year to be down 50 pounds AT LEAST hopefully 70!!
-go back to school and finish my medical office admin. YA going in Sept.!
-Go on a family vacation we have never gone anywhere and it is time!!!!
-Buy a car yes we are losers and have no car and with 2 kids you can imagine!

That is all for now hehehe......

So I hope you all do the same as I and go through what you want to accomplish this year and post it and let me know you did it so I can see what you posted! I will come back to this list and check everything off I did and show you all I did it!!!

Rough weekend

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Well this is a quick blog to talk about my weekend...well it was scary and then good. So on Saturday did some Christmas shopping and then came home made dinner and then watched some movies then it was bed time. Well Dorian who is 4 months old likes to sleep between us on the bed.

He is always a good baby and sleeps throughout the night. Well at 3:30 a.m. I heard him make this awful noise basically like a huge breath. It woke me up and I started rubbing him and calling his name. Then mike woke up hearing me and said what's wrong. I said mike Dorain's not moving he's not breathing. We both started calling his name and then mike picked him up and was rubbing him and then his eyes opened.

Dorian had stopped breathing for 30 seconds and it was the most scariest 30 seconds of my life! I could not stop crying and mike was crying we were both so scared. We took him to the ER so we had to wake up keira too. I wanted to be safe and make sure nothing was wrong.

We waited 45 minutes even before someone took my health card no one was even around! it was awful then the nurse had the nerve to ask me what took me so long and I was very mad but didn't ring her out I was too tired lol. So we were there till 8:30 a.m. and he is fine all it was is babies sometimes have regurgitation where the milk gets stuck in the esophagus. all we have to do it keep him upright for an hour after feeding and he should be good..

So needless to say very scary night cannot even describe what I was feeling and still am but my little man is good. Well other than that had a dinner with friends sunday and went good and all my xmas shopping is done. Well the diet and exercise is going great and am well on my way to almost 20 pounds gone! Well take care all and have a good week!

    oh my gosh!! How terrifying! I would have been a hysterical mess. My youngest is 3 1/2 months old. So she and Dorian are close in age. That is one of my HUGEST fears. I still check my five year old during the night sometimes to make sure she is still breathing
