My grandson is here to visit for Spring Break and his birthday was Monday. I love this little guy so much, he's just my heart and soul. I took a "workout break" on Monday so I could spend time with him, but it's back in the pool for Water Aero... Read more

So I've been online daily, just haven't updated my blog. Had some ups and downs over the last three weeks. I struggled for a couple of weeks between taking care of family, bad weather, being ill and just being overwhelmed but I rearrange... Read more

So I'm 71 pounds down since the surgery in mid November. I'm closing in on a number I haven't seen in DECADES! I'm wearing clothes that have languished in the back of my closet for YEARS! And I have to go buy new panties, lol. When I f... Read more

I can see my necklace. I know, it's a very small NSV (Non-Scale Victory for the newbies). I have a necklace with a small pendant that, in the past I've only been able to see in a mirror beause it was up under my chin like a choker. Today I ca... Read more

The weather in Colorado was glorious. Saturday morning I got my water aerobics workout in then picked up the girls and took them to the flea market. We were there for hours and I only had to sit down once! And even that was right at th... Read more

Well, apparently I worked out too hard on Friday and I really hurt my back. It's not so bad today but my legs are still very painful. I had the vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery so my bones and joints wouldn't hurt so much any more - it seem... Read more
Falling off the blog wagon

I'm doing ok in my weight loss/eating/work out routine but so many days I look on here and think "I don't have anything to say!" I guess it's like they say when you have writer's block. Don't worry about what you're writing . . . just write! ... Read more

I'm so glad my surgeon told me that the nausea I experience whenever I eat or drink is normal and even a good thing. It physically feels terrible but mentally it lets me know I'm on track! :-D... Read more

So FINALLY the bad weather broke. We're supposed to get into the high 40's and low 50's for the next several days. Yaaaaaaayyyyyyyy!!! The only problem is that I took a couple of falls during the bad weather and wrenched my left knee so getti... Read more

If you've read any of my previous posts you'll know I just found a gym to get back to after a five year hiatus. NOW the weather is making it impossible to get there!!! One of the saddest parts about it is that I'm blaming myself. Part of ... Read more

I neglected to check my calendar when I scheduled my water aerobics classes and I'm booked this week on Monday (when I was supposed to have gone to my first class) and today (should have been my second class). Fortunately, it's only this week. ... Read more
Another new beginning

I used to go to the gym regularly. Granted, it's been at least five years, but there was a time (yes, even though I was morbidly obese) where I was in the gym at least three to four times per week for at least an hour. Sometimes it was ONLY ca... Read more
