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!

Don't Tell...........


This is a secret so don't tell.

My sister made me cry on the phone the other day.  Not in the bad way,  but in the I know she is proud of me way.  Did I say I adore my sis? 

I was talking blog design (she is a graphic artist) with her .  I explained to her that I wanted to create a button to link my blog to my FB page.  Which is a huge NSV because most of my FB friends have no idea how much weight I had gained or the fact that I am now banded (now they know!).  She said she assumed I had told my secret.

I told her it was because I wanted to make sure I would succeed at this.  I have failed so many diets before.  I didn't want the pressure.  I told her that I wanted to reach my goal before going majorly "public".

She paused and said....................

You have already succeeded.  You have lost 88 lbs.

I explained my fear of being stuck here, at this number.  Maybe I couldn't loose anymore, then what?

You know what she said?

She said, hand to heart, YOU ALREADY LOST 88 LBS!!!!  YOU ARE A SUCCESS!

My sister told me I had succeeded.  Me..............succeeded!  Sometimes, we just need to hear that encouragement from the people we love the most.


  1. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful moment that you'll cherish the memory of for the rest of your life. I'm so glad you followed so that it would lead me here.

  2. You are sooo right!!! Congrats on the NSV!!!

  3. She is right, you ARE a success!! 88 pounds is absolutely fantastic and you should be proud of your amazing accomplishment!!

  4. awesome!!!!! :) I only hope I do as well as you!

  5. Isn't it funny that no matter how much we accomplish that we can't see ourselves as successful all alone. I am glad you have a sister that will point it out to you.

  6. It is so nice to realize that other people recognize your accomplishments. Be proud...you're doing a great job!!

  7. Another great NSV !! 88 lbs !! Be your own pal and pat yourself on your slim back :) LOVE the new photo .. so much younger !

  8. I love it! What a great sister. :)
