1. As of this morning I've lost 132 lbs. Yeah you read that right! I am 5 months and two days out of surgery and I've lost a whole fricken person! This is a huge reason why I've been absent. In the past few months I find sitting down to be one of my biggest struggles. Removing the weight of one person gives you amazing energy. I now look forward to waking up early, taking a shower and picking out my cute outfit for the day. Six months ago just getting out of bed was a struggle. Sitting down at the computer for more than a few minutes seems like torture now. As a matter of fact I think you all deserve a picture. Here's my most recent (Thank you Daddy for putting it together!). It's about 3 weeks old so expect a new one soon.
2. Sitting down requires a longer explanation. I've got hemorrhoids. Personal and a little too much information I'm sure, however I did promise to share all the nitty gritty though so there you have it. About a month ago I had surgery to remove some of them but it's still a work in progress. So while sitting long enough to write a blog post is torture on my soul it can sometimes be a pain in the rear too.
3. I needed to get back to the basics of being a mommy. As hard as I try to put myself first there is this little guy who walks around here. He needs my attention more than I do. Since school is now in session which means this Mommy has IEP's, functions and homework to help with. My son has ADHD and severe migraines and because of these things he gets extra attention from us. Cooking dinner is normally a whole day process since we don't eat anything processed. Everything I make to eat is fresh and homemade. No food dyes, artificial anything (food dyes, preservatives or enhancers), and nothing premade (yuk). We also practice Positive Behavior Mod which takes more energy than someone can imagine. So needless to say the little guy (although he's not so little anymore) is a huge part of why I don't blog so much anymore.
4. Thanks to this little nifty program I downloaded that was supposed to help make posting easier I lost 3 blog posts. I never even thought to double check to make sure they made it on here.
Like I said up top, I won't be gone this long again. I miss you all. Yeah I know I have a "therapist" and as wonderful as she is theres nothing better than spilling my guts on here. Plus I have tons of new things to tell you about. Rather than fill you're whole screen with nothing other than updates and all the awesomeness that I'm dealing with my way I'll split it up into a few posts.
If you still are in the mood for reading head on over to one of my favorite WLS peeeps blog. She's doing a contest right now for an awesome digital scale. My Switched Scoop!
