Life is ever changing!
Jul 13, 2008
Im now under 200 pounds! WOW! I havent had much time to enjoy the change in my body. I have been active in a recall of 5 of 7 council members here within AJ. It has taken up so much of my time. I just got a letter today stating they are forwarding them to the next step meaning this whole thing may get to ballet. I have learned much during this time in my life. People are not what they seem and when you think you really know someone they can be the boogy man in the night. I have met some really wonderful people and of course pissed some people off. I can say the city leadership is not at all happy with me. However I could care less what these people think. I live in a small town of 32,000 people. Only 2300 are reg to vote and only 1500 came out to vote the last time. It sucks to think that people really could care less about what our founding fathers fought for. I fear for my kids and grandkids. I worry for what is to come in the US with the people we are putting into power. I pray but at times even that is hard. If you would have asked me a year ago about doing a recall I would have laughed at you and said there's no way. I never read the paper and could care less about going to council meetings. Now with what I know I can not have closed ears any longer. There is no way we are able to sell our home or land at this time and I can see us staying here another 10 years. More later I best be getting to sleep which STILL does not come easy.
229 pound a going! Life is ever changing!

Steve has been so wonderful. He rubs me down every night with cream to help my skin on my tummy and arms. He tells me that I look wonderful. He has noticed Im more active. He is my best friend. He passed out invite's to a huge party Arbonne is having just so I could make my calls for the expo's I'v been doing. I swear it seems there isnt anything this man wouldnt do for me.
Nikki my oldest is doing great with schooling! She has been such a great help with little Emily. She stands next to me as I'm putting on Arbonne and what little makeup I wear in the morning She says she's putting her her prduct too!t... lol her face cream from walmart! She is getting so tall. Growing before my eyes.
Emily is now walking and keeping me very busy, her smiles make me so happy! She is such a good baby. She has learned to yell and is singing it seems.
My family is my life. Im so proud of them.
Arbonne has been keeping me busy as well. I have been getting leads, calls and expo's the last few weeks. My grandma doesnt know what to think about me... She laughs and tells me I dont know how to stay still! She is right.
This new way of living is something else!

I still have a hard time thinking about what I have done! I know I had my bypass done. Im doing good with getting my water, protein and vit's in. Life is just so different is all. I havent had any trouble with head hunger at least not yet. I dont even want a Dr. Pepper! Which I thought I would after the WLS. Im seeing my body change right before my eyes! Im face is thinning.
I have to say its strange to see my double chin leaving. My upper tummy fading and my legs toning. I dont feel like I need a nap mid day either. I have had to live with that most of my life. All these changes in such a short time.
Im happy that Im feeling healthier! Thats why I did this. I wanted a shot at a healthier life then what my mother and her family has had. Tonight my hubby, the girls and I walked a whole 6 or 7 streets to trick or treat and it didnt even faze me. This has always been a fun time of year for me I LOVED EATING CANDY! Itsnt bother me that I could have a candybar!
Im having to learn how to eat slower. Thats the hardest part of me. I pray to get better with that. Im having to learn new foods to eat. Which in many ways is a ton of fun!
And im having such a good time with my girls. My hubby and I's alone time is like nothing I have ever had. I have such drive! Im so in love with him. He is my best friend! And Im forever thankful to and for him.
I'm down 43 pounds and FEELING SOOOO HEALTHLY!

I almost cried today! WOW. Im feeling healthy and awake! 43 pound gone! FOR GOOD!
Also tried a product from GNC flavorless protein. Add it to a drink and its not bad. The lady even said u can cook with it!
People can tell!

Went to Church, I havent been since my WLS. A couple of my friends didnt know what to think it seemed! lol I didnt know what to say. Only a very few knew I went thru WLS. I just smiled and said thank you.
Im feeling better day after day. Seating upright for 3 hours wasnt easy I have to say but I know Im feeling better. And soon I myself will really start to see the changes in my body as well. I cant wait till I can play ball, run and not feel like Im gonna die doing it.
Im planning on running a 10k in the next year. This is a big goal! But I have always wanted to do it. So Im starting to prepare now. Walking as much as I can!
