    I am saying goodbye to that girl forever! This has been an incredible journey! I have officially lost 84 lbs since my surgery, 125 since I started really caring about my health (when I had my first back surgery 4/23/15) and 144 lbs overall. I will never turn back! If you are too scared to take this journey, don't be. It is is not the easy road, I'm here to tell you, but it will help you tremendously! I am so excited to see where my life is headed. Nowhere but up from here!

    Taking care of six kids IS exercise!
    Wow, Michelle, you are doing great!
    Unbelievable that you lost all this weight in only six months.
    You rock girl!
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Omgoodness SO MUCH YES TO THAT! Lol
    We've been out of our normal routine since my current family issue started but I'm learning to just deal with it and not let it stress me to no end. They are a huge part of my grief sometimes but they are more so my best blessing! Thank you!
