Loving life but not the weight

I am happily married (2 years on October 4, 2013) to the love of my life. I am working full-time while attending online college (which is not easy). I am pursuing a double bachelor degree (Early Childhood Education and Organizational Management). I had gastric bypass surgery 7-9-2009. At that point, I weighed 364 pounds (2 weeks prior to surgery). My highest weight was 384 lbs.

Patricia,
I am going for my degree for ECE online at Ashford University. I will have to take an in-state post-baccalaureate teacher prep program in order to meet the additional requirements for state certification (these programs are for students that already have degrees). I am looking into that now. I like being able to go for my Bachelor's online since it saves gas and you do on your own time.

I read that you are studying to be a teacher! May I ask where you are taking your degrees? Our granddaughter wants to be an teacher and is thinking of the U of Delaware!

Hi again! I have taken the summer off and am now ready to resume my journey. I have lost a little ground (meaning gained back a couple pounds) but I have truly enjoyed a summer of family fun and lots of golf. Time to get back on the bandwagon! When I saw you had added me as a friend that really motivated me to come back. Thanks for that and hope that things are going well for you!! emoticon

Hi!
How's that food journal going? I find that logging my meals here works even better than the journals I used to keep. Writing down everything I eat has always helped me lose weight.
Now that I am back on SparkPeople, it is working again.
The new chill in the weather has given my 12 year old little dog some pep, maybe it can do the same for us. Enjoy the autumn.
Good luck on your journey.
