Well.Hello all!!! I hope all is going well and the pounds are dropping off. It has been awhile since my last post but I try not to forget the one place that helped me through my journey. So what have I been up to lately? well I'm in graduate school at UCS. GO! TROJANS. That is a another story for another time but a happy one. I have found myself. It took awhile but I have found the person that I was meant to be. Don't get me wrong I'm the same person just a person who is comfortable with herself and the choices I make. Well I wanted to vent and to say I will not give up the fight because I have come to far to go back!!.
YES I WILL, YES I CAN, AND YES I HAVE

Hello My Oh Family,
It has been way to long and I know that it is hard for you to come and visit once you have lost the weight because you are doing and living through things you were either unable or not willing to do. But I have made it my mission to no abandoned you or any new comers because when I needed one of you your stories and progress helped me through. So thank you!!
So what have I been doing. I have been loosing the weight and have maintained it at my goal which is 151 lbs. I still keep the same diet as directed. I think I do because it works for me. I do have a chocolate bar every now and then but this time I listen to my body and not my mind saying "umm this is good, eat it all"lol. I don't jog or exercise like others, I do however walk and dance it off. I will dance a pound off like no other. DMBO. Hey!! do what works for you if exercising works then exercise, if walking well hey you get it DO YOU!
I have enrolled in Grad school and will be graduating in 2014. I'm becoming a social worker among other things I have been in school for ever I just love trying new things. However I will say this is my last school run and I will plant my feet and make a bigger difference then what I have been already. So has life been working for me? Yes!!! Did the surgery have anything to do with it? Yes!! It gave me my life back. A life to run and have energy to play with my girls, a thrive to feel sexy to completely hold nothing back from my husband, and let me tell you too good toooo good.
So I leave you with this... I not only dropped the weight, I dropped things in my life that were doing me harm as well. This surgery is a new start, a new way to live so while you are waiting for the pounds to still drop or you are happy where you are now... change what you want and keep what you must but live for you, don't allow anything to stand in your way. Love you all!!!

It has been a long time since I have been on here so just doing my update. I'm currently at 160lbs and wear a size 8 in woman's and 11 in juniors. I enjoy the feeling that I have found myself again. Its as though I never gained weight after my children although photos still remind me of where I came from and where I don't want to go. I like the size I'm at although many people think I'm smaller then I really am. I plan on getting my "girls" done next year. Just to give them their life back as well. Not trying to go real big just to a full c. I have to say I enjoy life. I still maintain my same diet don't eat sweets and stay away from large portions. Although the vitamins are a need to remember thing. But what can I do I traded one problem in for another and I have to say the vitamin problem is not that bad. Well I have moved and enrolled my girls in public school which is working out well. I enjoy everything the Lord has blessed me with. I could not have wished for a more blessed or enjoyable life then the one I have. I do hope all of you are still working toward a goal and shedding or maintain the weight. My new goal is to get a job using my sociology degree. Well until next time Stay thin and healthy.

Just stopping by to say everything is going great. I'm getting those "ur too skinny comments and looks but I say the hell with them. Comment now when I'm loosing the weight snicker behind my back when I was two tons of fun. I'm doing me and loving it. I hope you all remember why you got the surgery and keep it as the motivation you will need to put "those" people in their place.
Well I just want to say I wish all a happy holiday and hope ur goals are still in place. May you have a blessed New Year and continue to work towards your goal. Happy Holidays

I hope all of you have a reason to why you don't want to go back and hang on to it. Get a lot of support and hang on to it. begin to know yourself again. Begin to love yourself again inside and out. Begin to live life like it was always meant to be. Because baby I'm going to live every pound I lost you hear me! So I'm yelling high "I MADE IT, I HAVE LOST 100+ AND I'M NEVER GOING BACK" And I'm saying never. Till next tilme Oh FAM.

The only problem I have now is knowing how much I want to loose and I think at the moment I want to loose 20 more lbs but the doctors want me to loose 50lbs more. I like were I'm at now. I wear a size medium in shirts and a size 11 in pants. I'm 5'7 and don't want to be walking around like a pole so I'm going to continue to work on toning it up and shaping up the butt. Other then that I have come full circle in my journey.
I do wish all of you the best in your journey and hope you find the weight goal that suits you best.
