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!

Gratitude.................Day 2

Day 2 of the 30 days of gratitude............

I am grateful that I live in a country that has education available to all genders.

I was watching the news this morning and saw a clip about persecution of girls in the Middle East because they are pursuing education.

It made me think about my 3 girls and how I rarely think twice about their educational opportunities.  In fact, I would have to say I take for granted that education is available to them.

Education is a gift and something I am very grateful for.

On a lighter note, I am thankful that the horse size vitamin I stupidly took this morning has finally dropped into my stomach after lingering above my band for a few hours.

Of course, it finally dropped after making me so nauseous that I couldn't even breathe.  Rookie mistake on my part.  Sometimes I forget that my band is there. 

Anyway, find something (no matter how small) to be grateful for today!!!

Happy Friday.


  1. Oh, I hate that feeling of a pill stuck...sometimes we get lulled into that sensation that eating is not a problem...I do that quite often..glad it dropped! and yes, I too forget how lucky we are over here sometimes!
