I am in a little bit of a sappy mood today . Plus DH is not here and I cant sleep when he's not home. I realized some things after running into the ex boyfriend this weekend.I actually realized a few things.
1. Time goes by and people change. Sometimes for the good sometimes for the bad.
In my case it was the good mentally , physically it went from bad to good.
That relationship was not a good one even though he will always mean something to me it was not a good one and it was a good thing it ended. But it put me in such a bad place for many yrs .And today i was thinking about how normally if I had seen him , I would be screwed up for days, weeks . But its not like that anymore.
I have changed, Im in a good healthy, happy relationship, with a great husband and great boys.

2. which brings me to my next point. Nearly every day im in owe of my oldest son .
Again the ex brought this to my attention . But I was 16 when i had him , we have been through SO MUCH , we grew up together, he is SUCH A GREAT Kid , (So far knock on wood) that It amazes me nearly every day now how huge he is .
He's so big, yet still my baby . Sometimes i wonder how i got so luck w/ some of the shit I pulled over the yrs . Its a wonder I really did not screw him up .
I look at my youngest and think " I wonder what your going to be like at 16 "
He's 7 now .

3. My next point , idea what ever .
I realized after seeing the ex this weekend JUST HOW Far I have come in the last yr.
Mainly How happy I have become. I was so miserable over weight, I never would have been OUT somewhere at a festival . But I have gone to one of those things TWICE this month , One w/ my oldest son , he would have gone last night if he was feeling well.
But I would not have dragged my big ass out of the house long enough to be SEEN in public at a place like that. Let alone be confident enough to stand around all night and be next to an ex ANY EX . But i was, I had such a great time last night with my best friend and her husband, we laughed, cut up and just acted silly . Its just very , i dont know full filling ? I guess is the word ? I guess after all this what I have realized, is I have got my life back !!!
After almost 9 yrs of being obese , depressed, closed in , shut in , and un sociable I feel like i got my life back and I AM BACK !!!


  1. Hey Mindy! You look great! Your weightloss is something to be proud of!

    Thanks for reading, by the way. It's so gratifying to be writing for public consumption again!


  2. It is so good to see how confident and positive most women get after their weight loss. Thanks for sharing ;)
