New Year, New Me

I'm not the type to make resolutions for the New Year. We don't even really do anything to celebrate the New Year, we sleep right on through midnight ;)

However this year is different.

We are starting tomorrow night at our Pastors house. We will probably leave pretty early because we are old like that ;)

Saturday morning starts our new way of eating. NO MORE EATING OUT! Now of course if we get a giftcard we will use it but we will choose wisely.

My husband and I will begin to eat more high protein, low carb meals. We will eat more fresh fruits and veggies. I'm grateful the hubby is willing to go along with this. So many people who have gone through weight loss surgery have little to no support. I will be eating this way for the rest of my life. I also need to really up my water intake, I used to drink water all day everyday and now it seems I can go all day long without a sip of anything. I also need to stop drinking 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after meals, this is a HUGE challenge for me but again, its neccessary for my surgery. Im also switching to decaff coffee.

I hope this will be a good influence on the kids too. I do not want my kids struggling with their weight the same way I have.

We also bought a few new workout and dance games for the Wii we got for Christmas.

By the end of 2011, I will be a new, thin, healthy person!

May God Bless you all in 2011!

Christmas fun!

Christmas morning at my grandparents new house, as you can see my brats, uh I mean children a little on the spoiled side ;)

And yes we ate too much...way too much. I figure I had to eat what I wanted this year before I have to give it all up next year. Well not really give it up next year, chances are all the sweets will be just too sweet for me, or at least I hope.

And this beautiful sunrise was right outside the living room on the porch of my grandparents house, um yeah, it's kind of awesome!

And another picture taken a few days prior, again at the same spot, right outside their living room. Can you believe how beautiful it is at their new home?!

In other news, all my pre-surgery classes are all complete! TOTALLY DONE! AND I have officially been cleared for surgery from my primary doctor WOOHOO!
Now I wait by the phone for the shrink to call and schedule my written test (totally think its insane that I have to do a written test, but whateva) After that I meet with the shrink and then see the surgeon to schedule surgery. YAY ME!
Soooo close, yet it feels so far away.

To tell or not to tell...

So many folks who go through with Weight Loss Surgery are ashamed over their decision, I cant tell you how many stories I have read of people who have kept this secret from family, friends, even spouses and children. Its not always just kept from skinny friends and family either who do not understand the difficulty of dealing with being overweight, many times its kept from overweight people as well. The backlash many people receive is amazing and not in a good way. You see this decision is not an easy decision. Its not a cure all for weight problems, it is simply a tool to help an overweight person lose weight, just as a gym membership is a tool as well. So many well meaning people will suggest the overweight person should just work out more, go for a walk or eat healthier, choose smaller portions, don't eat out, don't drink soda, don't eat processed foods, blah, blah, blah. If only it were that easy.

I have seen some of the most healthy eaters struggle with their weight. Ive seen families full of healthy eaters that exercise all the time struggle with their weight. The "well meaning" comments like the above often lead the overweight person to feel like a failure because they have tried and never succeeded. THis often leads to more weight gain from depression over failing. Its a vicious cycle.

At my WLS orientation, the doctor stated that once a person hits a certain BMI (and I have hit that BMI years ago and have struggled since then) that 90-95% of people who lose the weight will regain it all.

As for me, I am not ashamed that I have chosen to have the VSG but I'm also not sure I want to go around broadcasting my business to all our friends. I do wish I could be one of those skinny girls that never struggles with their weight, that can eat anything under the sun and never exercise yet stay the same weight, but thats just not how my body is, so I know that having the VSG is a big step in the right direction.

So in comes in the decision, who do I tell about my upcoming surgery? Right now our immediate families know, some people from Church know, my closest friends know and some of my hubbys superiors know as he has had to take time off for appts and will need time off for my surgery and of course anyone who comes across my blog knows too ;)

But do I want to tell people on facebook? Then EVERYONE I know will know. I'm not sure I want to do that. I wonder how to handle surgery day, Id like to ask for prayer for that day on facebook but then people will ask what surgery I'm having. Hmm not sure what to do on that one. People will obviously notice me losing a good amount of weight in a short period of time and if they ask, yes I will tell them about the VSG but should I really tell everyone? The people I haven't seen in years and just read status updates on from time to time? I guess I will cross that bridge post surgery....

My new favorite blog

As I prepare for surgery I have gotten a little nervous over what I will be able to eat, eventually I can practically eat anything just in moderation. In the beginning it is especially important to get LOTS of protein.

Im just not creative in the kitchen

My fear was having to eat the same thing day in and day out...

BUT I found this blog, OH how I love this blog! So many super yummy WLS friendly meals! Make sure to check out her story as well.

ANYWAYS, she is having an awesome giveaway right now for CLICK Espresso Protein so head on over and enter to win this prize at The World According to Eggface :)

Another appt down

Let me just say this...these appts are SOOOOOOOOOOOO boring! I know they are neccessary but really now, we need some life in this meetings I have to keep going to. Slowly but surely Im getting through the appts one by one. Next week alone I have 3 appts, then one more the following week and then on to the most important appts leading up to my meeting with the surgeon. Im trying to not be impatient but anyone who knows me knows that I am an impatient person ;)

On a good note, I went to another support group meeting last week and had a great time. I was able to get some good advice on plastic surgery after weight loss so that was awesome.

We also had a gift exchange. And I got an apron! Again anyone that knows me knows that I have this unnatural obsession with aprons ;) Its crazy how stuff like that works out. I had just been telling the group that I was using aprons I have stored away as my mini-goal rewards, next thing ya know, its my turn to pick a present and sure enough it was an apron. hehe.

Things are moving along at home too. Our little man is back in public school and while it is not my desire for him to be there, he is loving it so far. The girls are doing great with preschool as well. The hubby is super busy though preparing for the next deployment which leaves little time for us but thats the military life for ya.

This picture is the official Christmas picture this year haha, these kids crack me up!

And this picture is from little mans first day of school

Moving right along!

The weather has been awful so there were cancelations, which meant openings for my appt to be moved up to today! yay!

I got a list of appts for me over the next month. Then a meeting with the case manager again, a few more appts and then surgery!

Today I was also able to go to a support group meeting. The bad weather meant only 2 other people besides myself. One of which had gastric bypass 7 months ago and has lost over 130 lbs!!! She also let me know of another support group that meets on Thursdays, she said the group is just amazing so next week I plan to hit that meeting up and meet some ladies who have gone through the same surgery by the same doctors. Never thought I would get so excited to meet new people haha!

The other lady that was there is working up to the VSG as well.

Well thats all for now :)

Here we go!

So much has been going on lately, life is always crazy in our house as it is.

I GOT THE CALL! This upcoming week I will officially begin my VSG journey...can I get a WOOOOHOOOOOOO?!

The first appointment is with the case manager, she will go over all my 9 pages of paperwork and put in the referals for all the doctors appointments I will need to complete prior to surgery.

I also have a few appts already set up, including a goal setting class and stress management class.

Um yeah, Im married to the military, Im fairly certain that I have learned to cope with stress ha. Even more so with ANOTHER deployment this coming year *sigh*

As for goals, well all I want is to be in a single digit size pants. Soooo many people get soo caught up in a certain weight. Most of my life my weight has been far more than most would expect so the weight doesnt matter to me, just the size and fit of my jeans.

If all goes well I expect to go under the knife in January, maybe February. Truth be told, I would do it tomorrow if I could ;)

Hubby is already joking that he wont recognize me upon his return from the next deployment ;) I *should* lose the bulk of the weight before he even goes so thats exciting. Hopefully I will be down enough shortly after to get the skin issues taken care of while hes deployed

In other news, the old people came to visit, they got in a few nights ago, my kids get sooo excited to see their grandparents, actually they are their great-grandparents, kids LOVE to see them. We are gearing up for a busy week of visiting and another big thing...

my son is going back to public school *sigh* Not what I wanted but my husband wants him to try it out again, something about my stress after he leaves and him needing more time around other boys. Most our friends are girls. Talk about upsetting, Im not pleased with his teacher but hoping she is not what she appeared to be today at our meeting. The boy is having mixed feelings but overall he is excited to meet the new kids.

Im not sure how the girls will cope with him being gone all day long, Im not sure how I will cope either, thankfully we know that if once again we are not pleased we will withdrawl him again and keep it that way. We shall see...

The husband and visitors

We had a great time a few weeks ago. My grandparents came to visit, well more like watch the kids while the hubby had surgery for accessory navicular. Surgery went well, he spent the first 2 weeks laid up and now is able to get around more. Hes still limited on what he can and should do but its been nice to have him around. Its amazing how much more I can accomplish when I can run errands kid free. Ive been able to go out with some friends too so thats been amazing. Who would have thought late night Walmart trips could be so much fun ;)

We also got to meet our way too stinkin adorable nephew Brady. His mommy brought him for us to spoil for a few days. It was sooooo nice to have them both around :) It was very sad to see them leave. The kids are still talking about Auntie 'roofy' and baby 'bwady'. Well enjoy the pictures, hopefully I can post more in the next few days :)

Its time to lose this weight!

For years I have struggled, and by struggled, I mean I really have struggled with my weight...for 13 or 14 years. Im over it. Totally beyond over it. I hate being fat. I hate trying to eat healthy, succeeding, losing the weight and gaining it back. Im tired of shopping for unfashionable, old lady looking, fat girl clothes. Im too young for that. Im tired of paying more for ugly clothes just because they are for fat girls. IM OVER IT!

So an unpopular decision was made. I have committed to having weight loss surgery. More specificially the gastric sleeve. I went back and forth on whether I would share this with the world, knowing how many nay-sayers there would be, but ultimately I try to live my life as an open book and really Im not ashamed that I am having the surgery. Unless a person has struggled with their weight in such a way they will not understand anyways. I am NOT taking the easy way out, surgery is never easy and more surgery will be in store in the future as I lose the weight. I already know I am on the list for a panneculectomy after having had 4 kids in just under 2 1/2 years, all by c-section, let me tell you, its not a pretty picture.

Every person in my family has struggled with their weight and I am putting a stop to my struggles, this surgery will force me to gain control over this issue.

Apparently Im the near ideal patient for this too. Im in my 20s, Ive had my children, though I am still safely get pregnant in the future if the Lord sees fit, I am on the very low side of the BMI scale for qualifying for the surgery. And for now my only medical issue that can be seen as weight related is sleep apnea. No hypertention, no diabetes, YET.

That is a big 'yet' too, as all those run in my family. In 2 of my 3 pregnancies I suffered from severe pre-eclampsia, my normally average blood pressure went through the roof, my liver and kidneys began to fail and I was literally dying. Having had pre-eclampsia increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes and all kinds of other medical issues later on in life. Being fat wont help guard me either.

So the ball is rolling. I have gone to my bariatric surgery consult. I have a number on the wait list and now I wait. In the next 2-3 months (hopefully) I should recieve a call to meet with the bariatic surgery nurse. Then a visit to the nutritionist, psychiatrist and my primary care doctor. After that I choose my surgeon and meet with him and should have the surgery within a month of my visit to him YAY!

It looks like the two weeks before surgery I will be on a liquid diet, then after surgery I will continue the liquid diet a few weeks, then a pureed diet, then soft foods and eventually back to eating normal foods. By normal I do mean normal foods. There are not restrictions on what I can eat, I will just be very limited on how much I can eat, my new stomach will not allow for it.

Maybe as I get close to surgery I will get brave enough to post pictures. For now I hide behind the camera but this time next year, if all goes as planned I will finally not be ashamed of how I look and jump right in to those pictures.

Crazy days...

I had intended to be more faithful in has not happened ;)

That's life for you...

Many things going on around here right now. Most important husband started Bible College! How exciting is that?! A friend from church has also started the same program at the same time so the guys can work on it together. Thankfully its a 'work as you have time' type of program, his assignments are up to him when he has time. Perfect for someone in the military that can not always meet specific deadlines.

He is also working on a sermon to preach at the request of our Pastor, how exciting! Weekly I hear him preaching to the little ones in our class Sunday mornings but very excited to hear him preaching to adults soon, a little nerve wracking to him though...

Its amazing to me how much I do enjoy teaching with him on Sunday mornings to 4th-6th graders. As awful as it sounds, prior to this I was just on the nursery schedule, once a month, and I dreaded those days! However now we go to church and I look forward to our class, I guess the nursery is just not my 'calling' right now.

Right now its VBS week! This is my first real experience with VBS, I went once as a child but I don't remember anything but one time sitting in a class while children recited books of the Bible, other than that I have no recollection of it. The theme is "God's Pony Express". I had no idea how much went in to planning these things. Thankfully our Associate Pastor took the lead in it and just told me what to do and let me get creative where needed in creating the paper work that went along with it. Surprisingly I was able to figure out how to design the 'buckaroo bucks' and other things needed. I'm still new to using Publisher, truthfully I had no idea the program even existed prior to taking over the secretary position LOL! I sure can find my way around the Internet but other than that I know nothing of computers ;) Which was very apparent this last week as well while I redesigned the bulletin, it took me HOURS. Thank the Lord for a good husband that is ok with watching our kids plus whatever other kids were at our house those days while I went to work at the church. Much more still to learn and a few more programs to figure out this week but Lord willing, I can pick them up quickly.

Anyways, after all that VBS is going good! We have been running 20-25 kids each night and they all seem to love it. Hoping we can get a few more kids in these last two days. My kids ask every day if they get to go to VBS, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they are so excited to go to church.

In other news we started our homeschool year, its slow-going right now due to crazy schedules but that's the best part of homeschool, we have all the time we need to accomplish what needs to be accomplished :) Our son has started 1st grade and our little ones preschool. They will also do a two day a week preschool at an indoor play space that I work at, a volunteer was needed which included free tuition, PERFECT! Our little man will be a 'junior assistant teacher', hes excited about that.

We are very excited for next week. My grandparents are coming in for a visit and to watch our kids while the husband has surgery. Most folks don't get excited over surgery but it *should* enable him to run again and better yet, walk without pain! He has an overgrown bone in his foot, how and when this happened, we have no idea, but finally after YEARS of physical therapy and several drs one finally saw what was so obviously his problem, its amazing it was not found sooner. He will be in a cast for 6 weeks...praying he handles it well. After that his other foot will be x-rayed and decided if he needs surgery on that foot as well, when you feel it you can feel the same 'extra bone' that is in the other foot, just not as bad.

We will round out the week with my SIL coming in for a visit, I can NOT wait! She just had her first child, an adorable, chubby little man :) He will be 3 months old the day she flies in! Soooo excited to finally get to meet him, we had planned to come down for or around his birth but as usual things came up and we were not able to get the time off, but at least hes coming here for a visit! I'm looking forward to spoiling him and loving him and pinching him and kissing him ♥

Well, 2 of the 3 are up now so I better run and feed them before they starve ;)

Gotta love when life throws you curve balls.

Two weeks after my accident skating, I'm still in pain *sigh* More x-rays were done yesterday, just waiting to find out, hopefully tomorrow, that I'm just being a big ol sissy and that there wasn't some kind of hidden fracture. Apparently its easier to see the healing than fractures themselves in certain areas. I'm certain that I'm just a big baby though.

I ended up being only able to attend one night of the ladies retreat. We had a great time goofing around and then trying not to get in trouble while listening to Debi Pryde while she gave her message, it was just a good time of fellowship and nothing too formal, it was all very relaxed. On the drive home I realized that until this eye issue I'm having is figured out I just cannot drive at night.

Hopefully this week I can get the eye issue figured out too, the eye dr is doing some kind of neurological test. FUN FUN!

Apparently my body thinks its far older than it actually is.

Thursday, June 17, 2010


My wrist is not broken, just badly sprained, praise the Lord! Im still in quite a bit of pain due to my inability to truely let it rest and heal ;) Guess thats part of motherhood.

Today will be a busy day. Right now the kids are out playing. I just finished up brownies. Next up a little thrift store shopping. I L♥VE the thrift store on one of the nearby bases. Just the other day I bought 2 skirts and 2 pairs of capris for me and 2 skirts for my girls for under $15! As we were getting ready to leave, one of the volunteers there let me know they had just gotten a HUGE box of donations in my girls size! YES! Hopefully its all out today :)

After a little shopping we will be going to an end of the year BBQ for our homeschool group. The kids are super excited for this BBQ.

Once that is over, we will do a little more retail therapy to get gifts for some friends birthday joint birthday party this week. Then off to sell a custom KMB tutu.

Once we get home, I will rush to feed the family before heading out to the ladies retreat hosted by our church :) I missed last years retreat as we were preparing for the husband to get home from deployment. This year, due to his work schedule I can only go to the night classes.

Well I better run, its time to get moving :)

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

busy, busy!

more like I was busy til this...

A word of caution, if you have a clutzy child and you get invited to a skating rink

1. refuse to go
2. go and make your child wear walkers (skates with stationary wheels)
3. be brave, put your child in skates but do NOT wear skates yourself unless you enjoy being laughed at by a complete stranger when your butt hits the floor, pain, ER visits, Dr. visits, x-rays, splints, and the possibility of a cast.

Any guesses on which one I choose?

Splints are not fun, tomorrow I find out after my second set of x-rays are read if I will spend most of the summer in a cast.

At least my son haf an awesome time!

Our little girls couldn't be any happier ;)

Tonight kicked off our Missions Conference YAY!

We enjoyed hearing from two church planters tonight, its amazing what something as simple as giving money can accomplish, all those souls saved because people were ready to go and others ready to give.

An amazing thing happened to me, normally I pray daily for people, and I pray for those who ask for it. Rarely do I feel this need to pray for someone without their asking immediately. However that is exactly what happened to me yesterday.

Usually when my husbands alarm goes off, I push him and go right back to sleep. This particular morning I woke up with this desire to pray for missionaries to Mexico, the Casias family. A wonderful husband and wife team whom I had the pleasure of meeting at last years Missions conference. After praying for them I looked online hoping they had a website, they did! I let them know I was praying for them. I assumed my desire had to do with our Missions conference beginning.

Tonight I got an email from Brother Casias. Imagine my surprise to learn he had been heading from the border when a plane crashed on the highway into several cars! He just so happened to be far enough back to not sustain any damage to himself nor to his van.

That right there is just SO God. God is so merciful, God will wake you up knowing a brother or sister in Christ is in need.

God is SO wonderful!

Weight Watchers?!

What?! Whats that?!?

Oh yeah that thing I paid to do, ya know that thing I paid for 3 months up front on...yeah that thing.

My bad.

At least I can start fresh (again) tomorrow...

until our dinner out with the missionaries on Saturday and the international dinner on yeah, there goes my 35 extra points ;)

He can eat!

well almost ;) 5 weeks ago my husband had a surgery called S.A.R.P.E, basically his palette was too small, his teeth really crooked. After years of yearly dental exams FINALLY a denist saw fit to send him to the orthodonist. Upon seeing the orthodonist he decided that he needed surgery, not just one but two *sigh* The next surgery will be in about a year from now, to break his lower jaw and reset it *shivers*.

Once in adulthood your palate hardens, as a child it is soft and a device called an RPE can be put on the roof of a childs mouth to widen it. Since hes an old man now he had to be put out while the oral surgeons made incissions on his gums to get in an loosen the palate, of course the husband could not just be an easy case, his bones were REALLY hard so it took an extra half hour to break it apart. Then we started to turn the RPE twice a day (oh yes I did get to torture him with the turns lol). He went from having his front two teeth crossed over eachother to having a gap big enough to stick a straw through! So for the last 5 weeks he has been on a liquid and 'whatever you can swallow' diet. The man has lost 25 lbs! SO NOT FAIR!

Ok well, I am glad I didnt have to have the surgery but still, he lost 25 lbs!

Yesterday was his LAST appointment with oral surgery YAY! He was given the ok to start chewing again next week, however he is giving it a try now, since the orthodonist said it wouldnt hurt anything he needed to do now, so little by little hes eating REAL whole food.

In a few months he will get his top braces put on to straight out those teeth, about 2 years from now he will be done and have straight teeth just in time to get out of the Army YAY!

Once I find my camera cord I will upload some of his pics :)

Resurrection Sunday

The day started out great :) Imagine the kids surprise when they walked downstairs to find baskets full of goodies, of course this was after I played dumb when my son asked if we had gone to the PX to get some of those 'basket thingys with stuff in them with plastic stuff over them' LOL.

After going through their new stash, we sat down to an easy breakfast of cereal. M and S scarfed down their breakfast, knowing they could play with their new goodies once they finished. B, on the other hand, decided she was not going to eat. We are at that oh so lovely age where she has decided to push every button possible to see just how much she can get away with. Of course the refusal to eat meant a major melt-down, ya know, we are obviously the meanest parents ever wanting her to eat a whopping 1/2 cup of cereal that SHE choose just minutes prior. At any rate, after a battle of wills, she ate, and off we went to church. The husband said the message was really good, as usual, since we have the BEST church ever, however I sat in the nursery, so I missed it all. After the service the kids all got to do an awesome Easter egg hunt, which of course meant lots of temptation to eat all that yummy chocolate ;)

A touching song and video

I cried the first time I watched this video. The song is by Brad Paisely and Sara Evans. Video footage from Passion of the Christ.

Stupid duty

I've been spoiled, its been awhile since my husband had to stand duty, duty is stupid. Even worse is when he has duty on his birthday, which he will do this year *sigh* It tends to land on the days that our children decide to go crazy. Completely crazy. Right now, B is crying, not just a little crying, big huge tears kind of crying. She fell. Again. Its been like this all day, kids taking turns trying to make my hair gray. But I love them and I love my husband so I suck it up and keep on truckin'. Thank goodness for bath time and then bedtime YAY me.

Well i was going to write more about our day today however I cannot take one more meltdown so its bath time YAY!

The classroom

If you homeschool, do yourself a favor and go to the Dollar Tree, OH MY GOODNESS! I cannot believe all the super cute classroom decorations I found, I went a little crazy. I even found stuff for our church cute!

I was so excited when I found this house, the extra room quickly became a toy room and now its the classroom. The kids were impressed this morning, they thought I had put up Easter decorations LOL!

Under that couch cover is the UGLIEST couch you could possibly imagine but works great for us to cuddle up and watch a movie or read books. The desk I have had my eye on for quite awhile and finally broke down and got it from Ikea.

Cutie Pies

These are what I live for...even when they are driving me nuts, like today.

Here goes nothing..

I'm so not a blogger, but I do have a new found addiction of reading blogs, ahhh the life of no cable, I now have nothing better to do than to read blogs of friends and strangers ;) Well I guess I could clean, or cook, or home school, or watch my kids, but hey, reading blogs is so much more fun lol. So now that I have my new addiction I figured I should start my own blog so on the days that no one else is blogging I can come here and keep myself company.

As the name of this blog says, I plan to cover everything from my going from flab to fab and everything in between.

This last week, um I think it was Friday, I started Weight Watchers...again. Off to a good start, so far only a few days in and I'm down 4 1/2 lbs, yeah buddy! That's even after eating my all time fave hot dogs at Costco *an addiction you all will read about many times* Love, love, love the plan, just need to stick with it...forever this time.

Tonight I splurged again, had this wonderful Caramel Fudge Brownie Frapp...YUM! Thank goodness for that extra 35 points I get to use somewhere in each week ;)

Well I guess that's all for lets see how much I can actually keep up on this whole blogging thing. HOLLA!
