stressed and freaked out

are the two words that explain me a the moment. so many things going on in my life right now and my weight loss is on the back burner which is totally where it should not be right now. it needs to be at the top of my list and in my face. i have to start thinking about me first (yes i am going to be very selfish at this point and time). i am worth putting myself first in my life at this point and time.

so many changes in my life that i really can't talk about even though i really want to but it's just not right time to let everyone know. so i just ask for your thoughts and prayers as i go through this stressful time in my life. i know in the end all will work out for the best.

so today my weight loss is 77 pounds :) that makes me very happy to see that number i have been struggling for so long to get over the 75 pound mark and now that i am there i am looking for the 80 pound mark. today at work i have a client come in and ask me if i have been running and i asked him why? he stated you look like you have lost some weight i said yes i am about half the size that i used to be, i have lost 77 pounds. he was shocked that i have been able to loose that much weight, and he paid me a complement that i look good.


can you believe that this is my the photo was taken September 2006. i just can not get over how much i have changed in this time frame not just on the out side but on the side as well. i feel so much better about myself and who i am as a women that i never knew before. I need a new current photo to post to show the new me.

75 pounds and counting

that's right i have hit 75.6 pounds lost since December 7th, 2006. It has been a long journey with many ups and downs and i am proud of what I have been able to achieve in this journey. i have gained self confidence and an inner strength that i thought i had lost. i am proud of who i am and i know i can do anything that i set my mind to. when i was heavier i would have never done some of the things that i find myself doing right now. i love shopping there are so many cute things out there and i can buy them now i am in a size 12 from a 22. what a change in who i am inside and out. it's amazing how we learn from things that we do in our life time and i am proud that i have taken this lesson i would not change it for anything.

Thanks to everyone who has been with me since the beginning of this journey.
