This and That

My son and I in Garden of the Gods in Colorado on our vacation
 (Note the I have a collar bone sticking out ! )

Well as of yesterday I am 38 yrs old ! A year ago I felt like i was 60 with all the aches and pains I had thanks to my lap band . Now Its slowly getting better, I have some muscle aches here and there  from time to time but i think its actually "normal" because it usually happens after work .

I started back to school a few weeks ago . Taking my pre requisites for nursing . I have wanted to be a nurse since I was 11 yrs old. I should have started a long time ago , i could have been done by now but I'm stating at least !

Weight loss wise things are about the same . 40 lbs lost . Stalled for a while now . I decided to "Take a break " from obsessing about weight , what i eat and weighting myself daily . It was driving me crazy . I did that for about 2 weeks before i went on vacation to visit my brother in Colorado and lost 2 lbs before I left ! I kept it off , one good thing about the revision is once the weight is off it doesn't come back on .

Now that my schedule is a bit more set with school and work Im going back to the gym next week .
Focusing more on what i eat. I have not been eating badly , watching what i eat but have not been obsessing, tracking everything i put in my mouth . But I need to get back to good habits, I really want this weight off , the rest of it SOON ! While I think realistically its going to take me another 6 months to get the remaining 50 lbs off I am ok if it takes longer. I go back for my final "year " visit with my doc next week . After that I go every 6 months . I hope he's happy with my weight loss . He's told me before Im doing great. So we shall see !


  1. Hey, you were in my "neighborhood" (I'm in Denver) so that is cool. GOG is such a beautiful place, glad you got a chance to visit...and totally loving that collarbone shot!
