  1. Nearly 6 Months Out From Surgery

    It has been a whirlwind of a ride since March's surgery. But I began my new way of life, 3 months before when my pre-op diet began.

    This 'montage' sums it all up. (You might have to highlight and right click and paste.)

  2. 5.5 months out

    It's been five and a half months from surgery and am ONE pound away from my original goal weight of losing 95 pounds.

    In that time, I have lost 44.5 inches from all over this body (10.5"-14" inches from each area: chest, waist and hips).

    What I have found that works for me is some form of exercise. I am not a gym rat by any stretch of the word, but I do like to dance around to loud music so Zumba classes are my vice. I'd much prefer them to machines. I still ...

    Four-Month Surgiversary!
    When I started the process in December 2016 to "go for it", and take control of my out of control weight, I couldn't possibly have imagined that I'd be wearing a size MEDIUM by summertime and feeling 20 years younger! But by God I am wearing a medium AND feel 20 years younger.

    My BMI index was over 40 in January (41 in December) and itís now 26.5. I have gone from 2 and 3x in tops to a Large (which are now too large) and my pant size went ...
  4. Made It Through The 4th Of July-- Part 2 pics

    I TRIED for the life of me to attach the pictures to my original blog, but it wouldn't let me do it.
    Thank You ladies! I was probably the only person NOT hungry at the party. I made so many different dips and salsa's and had made 17 pounds of bar b q'd beef, pasta salad, potato salad, cucumber salad, ambrosia, lots of desserts, baked beans and I even bar b q'd hot dogs for the finicky kids who wouldn't eat the other foods, and then one friend brought a big crock pot of chile verde, homemade ...
  5. Made It Through The 4th Of July

    Our house is the 'holiday party house' and this year, as always, was our 4th of July bash. I haven't eaten at any function since my surgery in March (I always nibbled on my morsels of so called food in front of people since then) but yesterday, I got to fit in! Mind you... my 'fitting in' entailed me eating 1 teaspoon of this or 1 teaspoon of that, all totaling up to about 1 cup, so it was a strange looking plate of food. I made so much food even though I knew I wouldn't be able to indulge in most ...
