Happy New Year!!

Jan 01, 2009

So far, 2009 has gotten off to a great start. 

I'm down 101 pounds since I first began my journey in February of 2008, 75 of which is just since surgery on September 3rd 2008. 

I've gotten my haircut, shorter than I ever imagined in my life.  With that I almost cried, because I was actually shedding my past and moving on with the new, improved me.  Nonetheless, I held my composure and enjoyed every minute of having all my long curls cut off.  AND to make the event even more momentous, I kept part of my hair, so that I could donate it to Locks of Love. 

For Christmas, I got Wii Fit.  I'm totally ecstatic about that.  Now I can really work out and keep working on my new figure.

New Year's Eve proved to be even more wonderful than expected with the arrival of my step-daughter Brooklyn and her new Navy Corpsman boyfriend from Camp Lejuene in North Carolina to surprise her dad and spend the holiday with us!

The thing that I am most proud of, though, is the fact that even though it's the holiday season and time to be merry (with food and drink)  I still kept my consumption to a minimum and managed to hit my goal of losing 100 pounds in 2008!

Hope everyone had as wonderful a holiday is I! 

Here's to 2009!
