Wrapping up 2012

This year has been a good year overall. I am half way done with my specialist degree program. I am not sure if that puts me loser to getting the administrative job that I wnt but I am hopeful that my time will come.

I am also 1/2 way thru the process of getting my gastric sleeve operation. This has really motivated me to start back to exercising and planning how I will manage the up coming months in terms of prepared for such  wonderful, yet drastic change. I am looking forward to getting back down to a healthier weight.

I have 3 weigh-ins, 1 EKG, and 1 lifestyle assessment to complete. I would love to get everything clear and have surgery in the spring. Dear hubby wants me to wait until the summer. We shall see. In reality, the insurance company is the biggest hurdle. I am off the 2nd week in April so that would be ideal, IMO.

This past week off has been awesome. I have relaxed....watched a dozen or so movies. I am even getting my lesson plans done. MY only real big house project that I have left is the bonus/play room. I know there is so much stuff to get rid of. I am dreading it. The other school/work project besides lessons plans are the patches for my students shirts. I need to suck it up and get them done also.

So here's to a productive and relaxing 2nd week on Holiday.

BTW--I am not making an NYE resolutions, but I am hoping to restart building some better habits....some weight related, some personal, educational, etc.  I will update on those at a later date.


  1. Congrats on your decision for surgery. It's a life changer. Do you read Cry's blog? http://www.cryslosingit.com/. She has lost over 100 lbs with surgery. There is another blogger that is about to have surgery, too... http://fatgirldivesin.blogspot.com/. I know Crys personally, and she has phenomenal advice. Email/message me if you want her contact info.

    Blessings to you in the new year!

  3. You're inching closer and closer and it will be here before you know it. Surgery was the best decison that I could have ever made for myself. I have lost 160 lbs and while life is never a cake walk, it is way easier to navigate on this side
