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!

Ten Things Thursday

It is Thursday and that means.....................Ten Things Thursday, brought to you courtesy of the lovely, kind and always funny Laura at Beer, Dogs, and Getting Healthier.  I say this all the time but really, if you aren't a follower of Laura's.............well, go over there right now.  You won't be sorry!

  1. This weekend is lovingly refereed to Hannahpalooza around my house.  With Halloween and my daughter's 11th birthday on Tuesday, we are having 4 days of partying and non stop fun!  I am a little worried about the candy.  I LOVE chocolate.  I pick through the kids candy every year. If they want to go Trick or Treating they have to pay up in Fun Size Snickers!  This year, as I am so close to Onederland, I don't want to indulge to much! Oh, the dilemma!
  2. It is cold here.  Don't laugh.  It is 55 degrees.  In Texas, that is Arctic.  I had to wear a scarf to walk this morning.  The wind was whipping me around!
  3. Yesterday, I reconnected with a friend that I have not talked to in about 8 yrs.  She saw my blog and said I look the same as I did before having my 3 kids.  THANK YOU LAP-BAND!!!!  It feels strange because I have kept people out of my life for so long due to the fact I was embarrassed about my weight.  Now, I can't wait to meet her for lunch one day!  What a great feeling.
  4. I really want to get to Onederland.  Like, I can't stand it!  I don't have a lot of patience.  I know it will be very soon but, I am ready to be there.
  5. Momma dog and all 7 babies are doing great!  Most will have the squashed up pug face.  Right now she is resting with at least 4 puppies attached to her.  My poor baby!  I can't imagine having 7 kids all sucking on you at once! 
  6. We have added a new friend to our walks.  I love that she had gastric bypass about 3 years ago and can relate to the emotional part of the weight loss journey.  It helps to know I am not crazy and everything I am going through emotionally is normal.
  7. I have to break it to my soon to be 11 year old that she will need booster shots.  Dear God in Heaven........she is all drama.  It should be a really fun talk!!
  8. I have very little appetite.  I think it is due to my nervousness about getting to Onederland.  I guess whatever works to get me there!  I will take it!
  9. I think since it is a breezy 55 degrees I will make a pot of chili for dinner.  Turkey chili. Ssssshhhhhh!  Don't tell the hubs as he swears he can tell ground turkey from ground beef (really he can't!).
  10. If you get a chance, pop over to Laura's  blog and watch that video.  I am still giggling.  People are insane!
That is all...............Have a great Thursday!!!


  1. I know what you mean about wanting to get to Onederland...you and I are so close, girl!!

    You really need to post some pics of the puppies...I can't wait to see them!!

    Happy Birthday to Hannah...I hope you all have a great weekend!!

  2. Ahhh, thanks darling for all the great things you write!

    Halloween is the worst for me! I've purposely stayed out of the stores because candy corn always ends up in my cart. magically of course. because I sure as shit don't put it there!

    Happy early Bday to Hannah! I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!

    And I know Onederland is just around the corner for you!

  3. I totally feel your pain on Ohneederland!! I was 1.4lbs away and then went out of town and gained 6lbs back-- I feel like it is mocking me! I am also impatient.

  4. I would have such a hard time staying away from the candy if I had kids in the house! Plus birthday cake! You can do it!

    I'm with you on the push to onderland. 10 pounds to go!!!

  5. I just know you're gonna get to onederland soon, you're doing too awesome. :)

    And I hear ya, Texas is freezing. Why, sweet baby Ray, why?!
