About Me

I am a proud wife and mother of 3 girls, 2 dogs, & 3 cats. I lost my job last year, due to budget cuts in education. I feel sick over the loss. I have decided to overcome my depression and weight gain, by turning my life around. First item - weight loss. I want to feel better, have more energy, see my kids grow up and meet my grand-kids. I don't want to be embarrassed about my size, if I don't get the job, I don't want to wonder - Is it because I am fat? I want to find me.


I'm glad you stopped by, and hope you find some connection or a bit of enjoyment in my musings of uncovering my true self; a lighter, happier, mother and wife. Leave a comment, support the sponsors, follow my blog, but most of all, be inspired and know you are not alone!

Day 78 – Weigh In, 243.2 lbs.

I have lost 31.8 lbs. That's pretty cool. Why don't I feel like I have lost it? My clothes feel a little looser, but I thought I'd see it in my face more. You know, my goal was to lose my double chin…lol. I just thought I would be a bit more slim-looking in the mirror. Don't get me wrong, I "feel" better…I have more energy and my depression seems to be in check, but I just thought I would notice more of a change in my body. Today is my 35th birthday. Yikes, I'm closer to 40 now than 30. (Remember, I'm all about the numerical rules for rounding…) I know this journey isn't going to get an easier, so I'm glad I'm doing it now instead of at 45. But I wish I would have done it at 25, instead of now…

I got a new scale for my birthday! I was so excited to use it. (Don't worry I have compared the new to the old and have calibrated them to match. J) It has weight to the tenth of a pound, body fat, % water, bone density and can save up to 4 users. I opened it and tried to set it up for User 1 (me, of course!) and it wouldn't let me program it with my height, age, etc. I am so frustrated. I really was excited about it… It does the regular function of weighing me, but I wanted so much more…So I'm off to Bed, Bath and Beyond to exchange it. I hope the next one works right.

Well, nothing much different here…Just finishing up Christmas shopping and cleaning the house for my parents who will be with us for about 10 days…from Christmas Eve thru Jan 2nd or so.
