Things that I am thankful for:
*My family *My husband *My kids *My parents
*Our health *My weight loss *Gastric Bypass Surgery
*Music *Friends *My Surgeon *Our House *Joe's job
*Computers *Sleep *Warmth *The Gospel *Being a SAHM
*Strength *Motherhood *Our Van *My Grandma Randall

I know that there is plenty more to be thankful for, but it is late and I am having a hard time thinking. I am so grateful for my family and all that they do for us. My parents are so loving and giving. My Daddy has been sick the last few days with a blood clot, and it makes me so grateful that I have him around. I do not know what I would do without him in my life. He is one of the nicest, sweetest people around. He would do anything for you. He always has a friend no matter where he is. If he doesn't know anyone, he will, and have a life long friend in a few minutes. I love him with all my heart and am so thankful that he had the guts to ask my mom out on a date. And that I came along 13 months after they got married. He has always worked so hard to give us the things that we needed. I am very proud to call him my Daddy. Love you Dad.

WOW moment

Today I went to listen to my niece give her report on her mission. Which she did an excellent job. After the meeting I went to say hi to the rest of my family. I went up to some of my older nephews (in their teens) and gave them a hug and a kiss on the cheek, which is very normal in our family. My sister was standing right there, and later she told me that my nephews asked her who I was after I left. They did not recognize me. They thought it was weird that someone they did not know came up and hugged them and kissed them.

That made my day. I also received a lot of compliments on how great I looked. It made me feel really good about the progress I have made. I guess 97 pounds makes a difference. :)

Is what I have been here on this blog. Sorry. I have been busy with life and haven't been home to much. Life has been pretty good, emotionally I am doing really good. I am working out a lot of issues that have been coming up. Physically I am doing great. I have been on a plateau, which is hard to handle, but I know that my body needs to get used to the weight loss. It is finally going down again. I am almost to 90 pounds lost. I will put up pictures next week.

I have contacts now, so I look different without my glasses.

Some of the emotional issues are pretty hard to get over. Like feeling the need to eat in private, or wondering if people are looking at you when you eat. I still think people are thinking I shouldn't be eating, even when I am only eating 3-4 oz. of food. I realize that most people are not thinking like that, but it is hard not to think about it. But it is getting easier.

Halloween was fun. We walked from my Mom's house down and around our house. So when walked about 2 miles. Mary was very tired when we got home and fell asleep pretty fast. It felt good to be able to walk that far without getting tired. I will post a picture of the kids later.
That's all for now. Have a great day!
