A day in the life

Nephew Nerf war


Life has been good lately.  Like that 'doing the happy dance every day in the shower' kind of good.  
My nephew moving back to NC has brought so much happiness into my life.
He makes me smile.
He makes me feel so loved.
He brings laughter and childish fun back into my life.

Things with Mr. Banker have actually been relatively good.  He's been trying so much harder lately.  I'm disappointed he will be out of town for Valentine's day, but it's just one day.  Last weekend I was visiting my parents, so we decided he would take the train down to go out in Charlotte.  I hadn't planned for him to meet my family, but my sister had an interview and I was still watching my nephew when Mr. Banker's train arrived.  So Mr. Banker met my nephew and my sister on Saturday briefly.  That was a big deal to me.  

We did have a nice time in Charlotte.
I hope that things just keep getting better and better.

Weight Loss Update

Hi blog family!

I don't have much exciting news, but wanted to give you all an update.

I'm losing weight at a snail's pace, and it's entirely my fault.  I eat too many things I shouldn't, too often.  Now, it's not like I'm sitting around with candy bars and icecream (holy recipe for dumping batman!), but I go out to eat too often and that needs to quit.

I'm going in for my 6-month revision follow-up today. Yes, it's a month early but it's a combined appointment for my gallbladder removal.

I'm pretty sure I'm sitting around the same place today as I was when I saw my PA 2 months ago.  I tend to bounce between 225-230 depending on the day.  It's still a downward trend so I'm not as worried about it as I probably should be. Considering I started at 344.4 though, 225-230 doesn't FEEL that bad.  And not trying to sound conceited, but I feel like it looks pretty damn good.  I feel confident and sexy and most like 'me' than I have in so long.

I fought SO hard to get my revision though and I should be making the most of it.  I should be busting my ass in the gym every single day.  Ugh.  I need to get on that.
Just me before going out last weekend

Over the weekend I took my nephew to a drive through zoo.
Haven't lost any, but I got those jeans for Christmas and they're looking a tiny bit big.

Got this dress for a fundraiser in March.
I would've never worn this at 344 pounds.  No one would've wanted me to either!
