Spring has Sprung!

Well Spring is now officially here in Indiana. It has been in the high 70's for several days now and the daffodils are in bloom and the trees are budding and showing a hint of green. How lovely. Spring is my favorite season. Because everything is coming back to life again after sleeping through the winter.
I am feeling pretty well these days, for the most part. I am sure I could be losing more weight than I am but I am eating too often. At least I am not gaining. I am down to 238 now though.
I went to Goodwill this past Saturday and bought a pair of jeans which are size 22. They are tight but I can get them on :) If I would exercise more and eat better I could probably drop 20 more pounds pretty easily.
Got a little Spring cleaning done today. I woul love to rip up my carpet in the living room though. There is wood floor underneath and I know it would look better than this dirty carpet. I do know that the wood floor looks good around the edges but probably needs to be refinished in the high traffic areas. I think it would increase the value of my house though. I laid laminate flooring in the kitchen right after I moved in. I am going to buy a new fridge and gas stove in stainless steel sometime this year. Want to pay off my Plasma tv first. I bought it mainly to watch the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl :) Sure am glad we won....lol
Well that it is for now. Someday soon I am going to get my son to take my pic on the digital camera so I can post a current photo and older photo so you can see my progress.
Hugs to you and Blessings,

Been Gone Too Long

Hi All,
Sorry I haven't updated my blog in sooo long. I feel so stretched on so many levels. I am still mentoring 3rd graders. I am picking my sister up from her kidney dialysis 3 x's a week and also taking her to the store and other such things. I have one daughter who is fighting a drug addiction, another daughter who is battling severe depression and a 34 year old son who is still living at home and doesn't make life any easier for me. Oh woe is me HuH? Let's have a pity party. Nah don't want a party for pity or any other reason. I am sure there are people who have it much much worse than I do and I should be grateful for all of my many blessings everyday. But anyway blogging just isn't top priority right now.
I am now down to 242.6 since my DS surgery on the 12/13/06. I go see Dr. Inman for my 3 month visit on 2/12/07 which is next week. It does seem like I am hungry most all the time though. But I am sure it is just head hunger and not body hunger. Still doesn't make it easy to live with daily, thinking I am hungry. Wasn't supposed to have any lettuce or salad making until I was 3 months out but was thinking of it all the time so gave in to it and it hasn't hurt me a bit. I am lovin it!! Matter of fact I am sitting here eating a salad I made right now. YUM! My favorite dressing is Red Wine and Vinegar by WishBone.
Well I will try to keep in touch a little better to keep up to date but until then you all take care and I will talk to you soon.
Hugs and Blessings,
