About Me

TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

I will begin by saying I am like an ostrich.  When conflict comes I tend to bury my head in the sand.  Or maybe I am like an armadillo.  I curl up and play dead.........or is that a possum?

Anyway, I avoid confrontation at all costs.  This is a trait lovingly passed on by my mother (no offense if you are reading this mom). 

But, today I dealt with confrontation head on.  It is so unlike me!  I think I have a new found courage. 

I would love to tell you all about my confrontation but it is really personal (am I a tease or what?).  All I can say is I am proud of myself for being an adult and taking some responsibility.

I am so proud of myself that I called my hubby at work to tell him.  He is the one person I fear will give me a negative comment.  But he didn't! 

I am hoping next time something big comes up I won't hide.  I am hoping with all my new courage that I will face my fears head on.

That is a lot to hope for.


  1. Good for you to stand up for yourself. Don't you love it that I have no idea what the confrontation was about but I know you were in the right? Blog Friends are amazing like that.

  2. Good for you!! Feeling like you can stand up for yourself is so empowering!!

  3. Great news, Brenda ! It's those moments of bravery that you can call on for the next time !
