It's Go Time!

Too long a story. I was hit by a car once. Gained way too much weight. Kept gaining. Jan 6, 2009 I was 394 and began my weight loss journey. By Nov 7, 2009 I had lost 100lbs and by May 2010 I had lost 125 lbs. Unfortunately life took over. We bought a money-pit of a house and had another child. I am a stay at home Dad. The stress got to me and now on Jan 6, 2013 I am at my heaviest, 4lbs more then in 2009, now at 398lbs. Obviously I can do it. I have done it. And I am looking forward to getting ...

Thank you for all the support you have given me in the past and in the future as I know you will. Here I am Jan 6th 2014. Approximately 415. I don't know for sure because my scale only goes up to 400lbs.

Hi there!
I feel ya, I've been pretty much the same way here. Well, I'm not sure I've made it 100% through one day. I'll be active all morning, eat a great breakfast and lunch, and then by mid afternoon I start the self destruction process. I think some of it is boredom. I mean, yes, I have a house to clean and Carly to take care of, but it's not as challenging as what I've been use to. Just taking time to adjust, I guess. Honestly, I'm ready to get back to work, just waiting for the right position (and pay) to come along.
As for your question on why I started my family so early, well it wasn't exactly planned that way. I had Em just after my 17th birthday. Because I had her, I thought I needed to get married and start a family. So right after my 21st I had Chad. Then that relationship ended when he was around 2 1/2.
When I met my now husband of 6 years, he didn't have children, and wanted one of his own, hence Preston :-)
And since I was home for at least 2 more years, we decided to have one last child (fingers crossed for a girl) and hence we have miss Carly.
There, that should fill you in, LOL!

I get why you're not so excited about Panama. Sounds like this trip must have been totally K's idea? Well, since it's already gonna happen, put on a happy face and try to make the best of it. Yes, it's a 3rd world country, but it could be a great experience for the kids, ya know? That's the optimist in me, what can I say.

Yesterday Preston went under IV sedation to have 6 cavities filled and crowned. He did great and went back to school this morning. He's a trooper.

Alright, that's today's novel. Hope you have a great weekend, any plans? We have off school Monday, so we're having a 3 day weekend. Nothing really planned. College football Saturday (go Ohio State!) and of course Steelers on Sunday. Love this time of year for that reason. And our first preseason hockey game was the other night...won't be much longer!

Take care!!
Hugs,
Beth

Hello! Where are you hiding? I know you're going to Panama, but that's not til October, right? Lucky duck!
So how is everything going? How is K doing? I hope she's adjusting to being back at work.

Alright, gotta get some housework done.
Hugs,
Beth

Hi!
Sorry it's taken me so long. It's been one thing after another this past week. THink this week might be a little more calm. Here is to hoping it will be anyway.
Thank you so much for the goodie and the super kind words in regard to my graduation. Yes, you've been on the 4 year journey with me and then some! Thanks for that. You're one of only a few of my "original" friends here. Love the loyalty!

So I see the Jets won. Steelers did too...although it got a little too close there for a minute. We play Baltimore Thursday night. No Ray Rice either. What a loser. Another reason to hate the Ravens. Idiot. LOL!

Alright, so what's on the fitness schedule this week? I've got to challenge myself more, physically. Also went shopping this morning and bought some of my healthy staples for the kitchen, which will be a big help. I haven't dropped any weight in months. Time to change that! Keep me in check, alright? I'll do the same for you!

Gotta run, presents to wrap before P gets home from school!
Take Care Bud!
Hugs,
Beth

Good morning! The summer has been going well, just very busy! This is the last week to fit in summer time activities as the kids start school on Monday! I'll be around more after that!
How have you been? How are your kiddies doing? Hopefully well!
Thanks for stopping by, as I said I'll be around more very soon & be a better friend :-)
Hugs,
Beth
