I can't believe it, finally I have accomplished my ultimate journey!!! I have now lost 100 pounds SINCE my surgery, I am now a 2nd time member of the century club with a total weight loss of 122 pounds, wow!

I hit the century club for the first time earlier this year on January 8th, it took until this morning for a terrible stomach virus to hit me to see my goal weight, there is always a silver lining right???????

Now that I am here I will maintain my constant vigilance and committment to a healthy life!!!!!

Life Sucks Sometimes.....

1 freaking pound from my GOAL, 1 pound and i've never been sicker. Found out after a lengthy ER visit last night that I didn't have just a cold, it was a bacterial infection and my white blood cell out was really high.

How diappointing it was to find out all those stupid over the counter meds I was taking was to no avail, I knew there had to be a reason why I continued to get worse (after almost 2 weeks of already being sick).

So the regimine of drugs I have to take includes prednisone which always causes weight gain, just what I need when I am so close to my goal, grrrrrrr!!!

CRAP, come on....I want to be done!!!!!! In other news I found out this week I have to have surgery on my arm and I opted to have it done 30 December, not looking forward to it at ALL!!!!!!!!!!! This will make for the 3rd surgery this year alone, I am hoping that 2010 is a much better year and worry free!

Basics, Basics, Basics!!!!

I am sooo sick of getting *this* close to my goal only for my weight to fluxate again, ugggg!

So, starting today I am tracking EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth ~ going old school on this one ( and I WANT TO BE DONE so I can maintain my loss, I can handle the fluxations but I really, really, REALLY need to see 153 so I can declare my victory of my 2nd time hitting the century club.

Here I go.............

So this is a clothing GRIPE!!!! From the outside people can say/think, wow it's must be GREAT to lose weight and buy new clothes, but in truth it can be an exhausting experience not to mention EXPENSIVE!!!!

Whenever I make a trip home to STL I try to hit up the local Goodwill store but the last few trips have been sooooo disappointing! They don't size their clothing which a HUGE inconvenience so you have to through countless racks looking for your size.

I tried on at least 15 pairs of jeans only to find 1 pair that fit perfectly and another that fits just "okay" but will fit better after another few pounds are gone. All of this for $9.00?!?

I would rather go to Kohl's and find my size and try it out, it's worth the $19.99 for a pair of jeans that fit and I don't spend an hour + looking for, ugggggh!!!!!

Nothing from last fall fits ~ I was in XL and currently I am hovering around a small/medium so once again I have to buy jeans/sweaters/shirts to get me through, I am thankful but it does hit the wallet hard. I also need to buy new pajamas b/c almost all the ones that I have do not fit, I have resorted to wearing hubby's t-shirts which are like drapes on me and my trusty flannel pj bottoms (I only have 2 of them), see what I mean?

Yeah, I am thrilled with my loss (119 pounds) but I do wish that when you have GBS you are given a years worth of clothes with it, LMAO!!!

Okay, done griping!!!!!!

Just a few pounds from goal.....

I need to get around to posting new pics!!!! Things are going good, looking forward to fall, still need to find clothes though ~ last fall I was in 14's (XL or L) and now I am in 6's (S or M) so yet again I need a new wardrobe to get me through. I am set for next summer though, yipppeeeeee!!!!

I have the MRI for my arm on Wednesday and I am PRAYING that I do not have to have surgery again ~ but I will deal with whatever they say. I am still doing PT 3x a week and walking with the kids everyday, we all look forward to our mid-morning walks.

I feel really good right now, if only I could go back to exercising. :(
