Excited……HAPPY…..A Lot Closer to my Goal…

Well, I got on the scales today at the doctor’s office (twice in fact because when we compared what I weighed the last time I was there, we thought we read the scale wrong), and I’m down to 238. So, that means, another huge chunk is GONE for good. I also had to buy smaller size bras today because my other ones were to big, and guess what I got to go down TWO sizes!! It feels so utterly good to be able to say I’m making progress even with Zeva out of me!! I am feeling great and loving the improvements. I ALREADY have more energy and am more flexible. I can’t wait to see how it’s going to be to be my ideal weight and have the family that I’ve always wanted. 🙂 Plus I can buy cute clothes that I would love to have now!! I can’t wait to be able to pick out an outfit without worrying about falling in love with it from a distance only to find out they don’t have it in my size. Plus I will be more confident as a person as a whole. I’m NOT trying to lose this much weight at one time, but I’m being more than blessed by it happening on its own. I knew I was losing weight, but I didn’t think that much had come off. I’m bouncing off the walls with excitement over it. I already feel sexier for my husband.
My screws in my ankle are set at the weight of 235 pounds, and I am actually able to walk so much better now too. I don’t feel pain nor do I have to concentrate on how I’m walking anymore. It actually feels like it’s happening naturally again. It’s so amazing how the body works!!

My youngest son and I get to have a “Vampire Diaries” date tonight. He loves that show as much as I do. So, it’s popcorn and Pepsi night for just him and I tonight. He gave up having a night at his Memma’s to have that with me. Of course, he is going there tomorrow night, but he choose me tonight. 🙂 He’s truly my Momma’s boy and I LOVE it.

My oldest son got all his school work done for the week yesterday, and he did remarkably well on it. He would rather have a LONG day of school work from sun up to sun down and have extra days off than be forced to do a little bit of school work each day. He does way better grades wise and attitude wise when we do it that way. Plus it is way easier on everyone’s schedules when we’re able to do his school work 2-3 days a week verses 4-5 days. That’s one of the reasons why I love him being homeschooled because he can learn his material in a way that works for him!! He’s extremely smart and loves to learn, and I don’t ever want him to lose that. He was starting to do it in the school setting because he was losing interest and being held back from his potential. I’m just praying that we can continue to do this for his sake until he graduates from school.

I just wonder how it’s going to work with my youngest son and daughter. My youngest son is a social beaver like me and thrives on interacting with others and being put in challenging situations. I may hide in the background a lot in large crowds, but it doesn’t mean I don’t observe others and it definitely doesn’t mean that their actions don’t push me to do better.

Zeva is growing like crazy. It amazes me how quickly they grow up. She is the opposite of her brother and has to have name brand diapers. Let me tell you, so far, I’m a huge Huggies fan. I love their clear indicator that she needs changed, and how SOFT their diapers are. Pampers is running a close second, but Huggies feels more like real clothes. If they made Pink demin diapers for Zeva, I do declare Del would have her wearing them. He loves her being in girly colors!!! Of course, I have to admit I do too. I love having a little girl again. I always thought I was only made to be the mother of a boy because there wasn’t many feminine things about me. Of course, Del makes me want to be more feminine though, so that plays a huge toll in too.

Oh yea, if you get the chance to read the book “Lethal” by Sandra Brown, I’m only in Chapter 8 of the book, but it has been a good read. If I had more time, I do declare, I’d be farther along with it. As it stands now, every spare second I get I’m reading it. It’s full of suspense so far. The author has done a great job of making me feel like I’m a fly on the wall in the scenario instead of just reading it, and when an author can do that, to me that’s a great book!!!

Well, I hope this finds you doing well.
