Taking Control of My Life!

It has been a while. I am now past my original goal date. I am disappointed in myself. I let life around me take over my choices. No more!!! I am making a plan and I am going to lose the last 25ish lbs. by the end of this calendar year.

I am going to remove wheat from my life, increase my fruits and veggies, and get back into exercising!!!! My plans are simple. I am blessed to have an elliptical and a treadmill. I have dvd's and now to carve time out of the day for myself ...

In all aspects of life we are endlessly training ~ by Me. ^_~

I have come so far. I have lost 60 lbs since January 2010. I started at size18 tight and 20 comfortable. I stumbled onto SP by the will of God. It has saved my life and helped me to teach my kids about food. How make better choices, eat without regret, moderation in ALL things, owning our mistakes, and just enjoying life. Diet and fat are words NOT allowed in my house.

I hope to run the Disney's Princess 1/2thon by the time I am 40 or at least a few weeks after since my bday is just before the marathon.

I do struggle with food, motivation, and life. I have learned to go with the life and just do MY BEST.

Since my journey started I have inspired my mom, sister, teachers at my kids school, my neighbor across the way, and parents at the bus stop. mI love going to school functions and running into a mom I have not seen in a awhile and hear them say....."if you can do it so can I!"

My main reasons for trying to be healthy is for my kids. Also, I do not want to be my mom's age and have health issues due to my weight.

I am always training for life as a mom, wife, Catholic, runner, daughter, sister....I am not perfect and I will NOT try to be.

________________________________________
I am determined to be a healthy and happy person.

I am Becky and I am a SAHM mom to three kids. I have dd1 Brittney 9yrs, ds Xander 7ys, and dd2 Bailie 5y in August. My dh, PACMANLIVES, is a geek and a very good geek.

I am a closest eatter and I love food when stressed out.

I want to be a mom fit for my kids and if I happen to be a size 8 (and stay) before I am 40....woohoo for me.

Coffee is my life line just ask my family. I can drink it any time and where just as long as it is good. Mocha, Lattes, Cappicinos, Frappes, Decaf. from the pot, ....just name your poison.

So sorry to hear about Brittney :( I hope she bounces back really quickly.
Sorry about Xander as well; can totally relate...soooo not looking forward to possible similar issues w/y ds once full days start (he doesn't like using the bathrooms in school and that starts the whole gi problems that happen during the year and miraculously go away during extended school holidays and summer break- being able to use the bathroom at home instead of holding it ).

Hope you get your 2nd car back soon and also hope you have a good night my friend!

Hope the kids had a great 1st day of school!

I had a long day- oral surgeon appt- had the tooth extracted (from the 2 failed apicos) and a bone graft and the implant put in. Thankfully I was put under w/ general anesthia. I hated going for this- this is the 1st tooth I ever had pulled and the worst part was there was nothing wrong with the tooth. It ended up that the tooth and an extra root way up under my sinus' and fractured at some point (could have been many years ago) and now kept causing draingng & infections. The surgeon tried two apicos (gum surgeries to remove the very tips of the roots and put filler in)- on xrays it looked perfect but over the last year the infection just kept coming back- which meant fracture & there is absolutely no way to save a fracture.
Normally an implant procedure can take up to a year to complete but I got lucky & my bone was strong enough to do a direct implant (w/out the 3-6 mo 1st step bone grafting). he extracted the tooth, put in the implant (the titanium rod) and put extra bone grafting around it. If all goes well, in 3 months it'll all be set and solid in place and I'll get the abuttment put on (the part the crown will attach to), then a week or two later the crown will be put on and I'll have a shiny new permanent tooth (instead of the sore empty hole full of many stitches and a titanium rod that i have now...lol... Thankfully it's a back tooth.

I'm really, really sore and tired. I just took my pain meds- so I'm going to ice it and try to sleep a little.

sweet dreams
