Happy New Year!!
Jan 01, 2009So 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!
