Weigh In!

So I weighed today for the first time since I left the hospital almost 3 weeks ago and to be honest I was terrified to get on the scales. I left the hospital weighing 147 lbs which was up 10 pounds. I knew alot of that was fluid but I also have not been able to exercise or anything. I have also not been in a pair of jeans that were not made out of that streghty material and at least a size or two bigger than what I have been wearing because anything that actually fits hurts my tummy. I honestly have been wearing work out pant the majorety of the time. Then the kids were home for over a week and then we had Thanksgivin and my momma is the best cook in the world. I really did try not to overeat. When I got on the scales tonight I weighed 138. So I was pleased, now if I could just get over this stupid soreness so I could get back to exercising. My Dr. released me to go back to work yesterday and I feel like it set me back more than a week as far as the pain, or there is somethin…
PLEASE GO AWAY!!!

We have had a sick kid everyday for a week and I want this to go away. I got out of the hospital last friday and that evening had to go back to the pharmacy to pick up some medication. Eli went with us(he had an extremely had time with me being gone but that's another blog) he was standing down the aisle from where Donnie and I were and I looked down at him and I told Donnie he's got fever go feel of him. I was moving really slow it was easier for him to do it. He said he does feel kinda hot, so I grabbed some motrin and a themometer and we headed home. His temp was almost 103 and we are talking about a kid that don't run fever, he has to be nearly dead to have a fever. So this went on all weekend, I took him into the peditrician on Monday and they said it was croup and did a quick strep swap on him. The strep came back negative but with everything he had going on they put him on antibiotics to get him cleared up. They always sent there quick streps out to…
My kiddo's are making me hurt myself!

Today we went bargain hunting and I have to say we did find some pretty good deals. I got a really big suit case, really nice too for $5.00. The boys are now using it to entertain themselves. I am lying in my bed and I hear Eli scream Jordan I'm upside down, I'm upside down. Eli had gotten inside the suitcase and Jordan had zipped him in there and had picked it up into position to pull it on the wheels and it toppled him on his head cause he got in it backwards for that. I didn't even have to get up and go look I knew what they had done and I was lying laughing or trying to because the first chuckle and I nearly fell out I couldn't believe that it was so painful. Oh my goodness there must be stitches on the inside or something cause when I laughed oh lets just say I hope they don't do anything funny again for a couple more weeks. No I'm just kidding I like my kids to have a good time.

We also got a new computer for the ki…

You asked and here they are! Here are a few pictures taken probably about 6 weeks ago.




Here I am working, I love my new lap top. I got this for my birthday in September.







These were taken after my hysterectomy, man am I pale. I'm thinkin I may need some Vitamins. My tummy is still pretty swollen. uggg



Peace, Quiet, Stillness and yet why can't I enjoy it.....

It's Sunday morning and I have sent my family off to church is why... I am so suppose to be with them but after the last few day I know that I cannot sit through Sunday School and then morning worship.. My body for one is so sore and stiff it would never make it. I feel like a old lady( no offense to anyone out there but this is for the birds). Secondly I fall asleep at the drop of a hat and I believe that would be quite embarrassing. So I sent my Hubby and boys off this morning without me. I knew I had a great husband but he has really proved himself over the last few days (not that he had to). I had my hysterectomy on Thursday morning and so not to interrupt the boys schedules to much I got up early that morning and went over and had my mom drive me to the hospital. Donnie stayed home so he could get the boys off to school and he got to the hospital in plenty of time before I went back to surgery. He and mom were the fi…

So I went to go pre-register for my surgery for next week and they wanted my driver's license. She looks at it and after a few minutes she said "I really had to study this a few times to tell whether or not this was even you, you really need to have this redone." So I took her advice and here is the before and after.
This was taken yesterday, after 52 lbs of weight loss!!!


This was taken in September of last year. What can I say, this was just plain awful. Thank God I decided to get healthier and more fit.
