New Clothes

I love where life is taking me

I am proud of myself this week. My energy levels are increasing each day. I have done very good OP and have walked every day... a total of 17 miles thus far. I wake up earlier, but the time does change on Sunday, so we will see how my morning walking schedule plays out.

I love all of the outfits I bought at Lane Bryant this past weekend with my birthday money. They all make me feel good and can see my body shaping up.

Thank you Lord for all of the blessings I have been given. Amen.

I took this picture last night before I was going out. I have lost 48 lbs.

I live for the weekend!

This past week went by so fast and I got through my first week back to work. It is chilly today and Destiny and I went to Pass-a-Grille beach but only lasted about 45 mins. because the wind was blowing so hard that sand was everywhere! It was a good time while we were there. I love her so much and she is growing up so fast right before my eyes. Thank you Lord for answering my prayer and giving me Destiny in my life. She still has a long road ahead but with YOU by our side... we will be just fine.

I gained 4.4 lbs. this past week, but that is the past and I have already got back on track. I am proud of myself for stepping up to the plate and recognizing that I was over eating last week. My friends are so supportive and my friends on the Weight Watchers 200+ Pounds community site. There are so many people battling their weight, but we are all determined to get there... one day at a time.

How Time Flys!

I went back to work on Monday and have been non-stop since. My energy levels are great and I was able to walk 3 miles today and Monday! I have been eating a lot, but not complaining right now since I did not eat for almost 3 weeks with my illness. I feel total control over myself and today will be a healthy eating day for me.

Weekend was great!

Weighed in Saturday morning at Weight Watchers and gained .8 lb., that is not bad considering last week was the first time I ate food for quite sometime! I got to celebrate my birthday at Debi's house Saturday night and we all had a blast! I look forward to getting back into my routine tomorrow. We will see how long it lasts before I am stressed, LOL.

Today did not turn out as planned!

I had my divorce hearing scheduled at 11:15 today and it was uncontested and all that and it got postponed in less than two minutes!! It is hard to understand why things like this happen, but I know it was not the right time for some reason. It definitely deflated my balloon today, but I am still floating!

Follow-up with DR. today

After waiting an hour and a half to see the DR., he spent less than 2 minutes and was happy with the results of the surgery and my wounds! I went out last night and had a total blast, dancing, drinking wine, hanging with friends. I am feeling on top of the world right now and can not imagine how I am going to feel after the divorce tomorrow!!

Watch out world.. here I come!

Feeling Back to Life

I got up this morning and went for a 2.5 mile walk and it felt great! It has been almost 4 weeks since I have gotten to go walk. All of my health issues over ruled my walking. I am feeling much better overall from surgery a week ago! It is amazing how quick the recovery was. The little things that mean so much.

Another day at home

I have never been out of work as long as I have now. This is my third week at home and I am healing well from gall bladder surgery, strep throat, lower back pains and allergies. My energy increases a little bit each day. Being off work while you are sick is not as fun as if I had a three week vacation doing what I wanted to do. I am grateful for my job that I have the flexibility and benefits that keep me going financially.

Off Schedule

I woke up this morning and my runny nose had headed to my chest. Because I have been sick with everything, I got paranoid and called the Dr. Gratefully, it is just allergies and he gave me some drugs. I am going to spend the week at home before returning to work after my surgery.

I have lost a total of 53 pounds and glad I am on my way to my 100 lb. weight loss by Christmas! Weight Watchers is a wonderful program.

First Post

Wow, it is amazing how life takes us on these trips and in a matter of no time, our lives have changed! I have spent the past couple of months dealing with health issues and a divorce. My divorce will be final this Friday, March 17th. I just turned 39 on Thursday, March 9th and that was also the day I came home from the hospital from emergency gall bladder surgery!

I am starting this blog so I can now capture all of the wonderful things I am going to spend learning to live life! I am so excited and look forward to my adventure.
