Wordless Wednesday!!

The other day I picked up Mom's Musings's kids from school. Ruby, who is a friend of Grace, had fun carrying Faith on her back, on a backpack!

Weight-Loss Journey!! Down 61 lbs!!

So, I meant to blog at 60 lbs lost but I sort of missed that point!!  After breakfast yesterday, I stepped on the scale and to my excited surprise, I discovered that I passed that little goal by a full pound!!

As promised, here is my pics!  Clearly, I need to buy some smaller clothes but these ones will work for now!

My Son's Facebook Status Today.

My son had a really profound status on Facebook today.  I think it was well written and worth the share.  Coming from someone who is only 18, and was the age group he is talking about not long ago, could have a greater impact on kids nowadays.  Makes me a proud mamma!

"The future generation is starting to disgust me. All kids are worrying about now are getting laid at 12 and being proud for smoking and drinking at 11. What the hell happened where the kids started thinking they are adults? Half of them have "girlfriends" and "boyfriends" and talk about how in love they are. Bullcrap. Most of them can only even spell "relationship" because the Facebook statuses. Don't even get me started with the lack of enthusiasm about what they want for a future. I knew what I wanted to be since grade 7 and kids now a days could careless and are only concerned with knowing if there is a party next weekend. A future is built upon who we leave it in the hands of and what we make of it now. If you ask me, we're screwed. Thank you society, you're also to blame."

Weight-loss Journey...Yuck, tuna, never again!

So last week, I thought I'd try a bit of tuna.  BIG MISTAKE... It must have not been moist enough or my tummy wasn't ready for it, but I had pain...a lot of pain.  It was horrible. I only had to tiny bites of it and I broke in to a cold sweat and my stomach began to do flips and spasms, so I had to send my Veteran to the surgery friend, Danielle and my friend who just had the surgery a text message to find out what to do about it.  They were both very helpful at calming me down. I'm sure my anxiety was sky rocketing and was adding to the problem but they both advised me to relax, the pain doesn't last forever. In end, I had to purge to get rid of it, because it was intensifying and I could see no end.  I seriously felt like I was gonna die.

So, not long after I tossed my cookies, the pain subsided and I was grateful for that. I think it will be a very long time before I will try tuna again.  For some reason, when it comes back up, its a major turn off.
I had an issue with chicken the next night that was much more mild than the tuna, but since those two things I have been much more vigilant about the texture of my foods.  Everything is very soft and moist and chewed to an applesauce consistency.  Following those rules, and everything is smooth sailing.

Today, after stepping on the scale, I discovered after being plateaued at 57 lbs lost for the last few days, that I am just 1 pound away from 60 lbs down!  When I get there, its time for a picture!!
