    I have 5 kids...son - 23, daughter (married) - 21, son - 18, daughter- 15, son - 12. The youngest three are still home.
  5. LOL yes you are! I miss the green of midwest, but when we went back one summer we were like..OMG there are sooo many bugs! Guess we didn't notice the lack of that here. My husband is awesome, he has a metabolism where he can eat and eat so he is trying to be good ..he has VERY bad eating habits but he is trying for sure. He loves me no matter what, just wants me to be healthy and happy. I have two girls age 14 and 12....*sigh* teenage girls...pretty much. They are very very supportive and happy to make any adjustments they need to to help me. I think my girls are more excited than my husband...I think he's worried about any change. He also had a mini cow when I went through a stage that I quit wearing contacts and wore glasses for a year or two. Men are weird!

    I am the woman!~ heehee! We are in Iowa...with chances of snow this weekend.
    I have family in Phoenix and love it out there, although it is always so beautiful to come back to the lush green of the midwest. Tell me about you and yours. Do you have a lot of support? My husband has been great....and my kids (especially my girls) have been excited and encouraging.

    I went ahead and did the myfitnesspal.com too....It is more friendly it seems, then sparkpeople.com. Sparkpeople won't let me put in my low calorie count. Thanks for the heads up on that!
    I am not doing well with exercising...I need to start getting out. After the first snow, my husband will start snowshoeing REGULARLY so I know I will be getting out then. For better or worse....ANd that is such good exercise! I played kickball on Thanksgiving day with the family! Only fell on my face once. (goodgrief!!!) I haven't run for years, I think.....oh well, at least I played with my family unlike the rest of the women!

    I have seen theworldaccordingtoeggface! such a good site to get options that are tasty and healthy and protein rich.
    What do you do with the cravings? You mentioned cupcakes....I know I have eaten more carbs over this long holiday weekend and I think it might be affecting my weight loss. (not that I'm freaking out...I know it will all even out...)
    Do you keep track of what you eat? I ahve been using sparkpeople.com.
    But not over this long holiday weekend...Will get back on track with that on Monday.
    How did Thanksgiving go for you? Mine was really nice...can't believe all the conversation I was able to offer when I wasn't busy eating. I might have even been irritating to the eaters at my table.

    Hello!! I'm having surgery with Dr. Reynoso soon. I was initially going to have surgery with Blackstone but Reynoso could get me in sooner. I seen on the post you had Dr. Reynoso! Were you scared at first?

    That is so good! My loss has been strictly pre-op and post-op. I kind of "mardi gras'd" before the pre op diet...stuffing it in.
    I knew the first day of pre-op was the first day of the rest of my new life.

    I admire that you did so much to prepare for the surgery! That is great!

still losing!

by janetlea1973 on 03-12-2013 at 01:25 PM
I just want to encourage everyone, those who are thinking about it and those who just had surger...and those who are slowing down. I am 17 months out and although I have slipped up here and there along the way - especially during the holidays - I am still losing. I try to track what I'm eating on myfitnesspal....I've had times of good exercise and times of mediocore exercise. I'm excited that I'm able to go hiking with my daughter now and ENJOY it and feel like I'm working it hard and not DYING!

8 months out --- still not eating a whole lot at one time -- woo hoo!!

by janetlea1973 on 06-09-2012 at 05:09 PM
I'm 8 months out from surgery and I still can't eat a whole lot at one time. I mean....to me some days it seems like a whole lot...but then my kids laugh at me and say "mom..seriously, you barely eat anything". My normal breakfast is a string cheese and 1/2 a premier protein bar at about 8....and I'm good til lunch. Hubby and I just got fried chicken (I think a first for me since surgery) I had a leg and I'm done. I cannot say enough about how much this is a life changing wonderful thing

Down 102lbs! YAHOO!!!

by janetlea1973 on 03-12-2012 at 02:40 PM
So first of all, yesterday I was trying to wear this one top...it just wasn't working for me so I decided to try on a 1x that someone gave me when I first started losing weight...I told them at the time that I had a LONG way to go before I could fit into that. Low and behold, just on a whim I decided to try it on and IT FIT!!! I'm gonna upload the pics cause I'm sooo excited! Today my daughter was weighing herself and I thought -- well let me just see....and I'm down 102lbs from when I first started

Long time...no post

by janetlea1973 on 02-27-2012 at 04:34 PM
WOW, just realized I hadn't posted since November! So today I was sitting in the breakroom with a co worker talking and I CROSSED MY LEGS and sat that way the entire 15 minutes! OMG I just gotta say I feel soooo soooo soooo good. I have some sort of cold that is zapping my energy right now, but even with that I have SO much more energy than I used to! Since the beginning of my journey to get this weight off I've lost 93lbs, still have 7 to go to reach my goal, and about 30 of that was pre surgery,
