5 months and 60 POUNDS!!

I started my journey on January 2nd of 2009. It has been VERY rewarding, and I have learned to like (and dislike) a few things. But, things that I can accept. Here is a picture of what I looked like last July at my nephews birthday party. Yes it was at a pool, and NO I would NOT put a swimsuit on!

During the months of March and April, I did not lose a pound. AT ALL! But, I re-evaluated and got myself and picked my behind back up, and started back on progress. I looked at this as a positive, because I didn't gain anything either. Just held on to the plateau, as much as that is aggrivating.Once, I got back to the exercising, the weight started falling off again. =) yes, I was excited to see that I could lose more.

We took my kids to the coast, a couple of weeks ago, so they could play in some sand. I put a bathing suit on, and thought my hubby was gonna HIT THE FLOOR! He was in shock to say the least. I love to take pictures, and there was this really nice guy that came up and said, Ya'll get together, I'll take you a family picture, soyou will have one with you all together. It was a very nice thing for him to do, otherwise, I'd never had one. And this is the pic...


I have 31 days until my surgery! YAY! I am getting so excited and nervous like you would NEVER know. I want to lose around 16 more pounds before this, and I think I can do it. Because it is attainable! I'll take more though, if I lose more! I'm just keeping my head up and reaching for the stars!!

Have a GREAT week!
