Li'l Update

I've had a couple of nights off from class. My DC instructor had to go to Florida on business (yeah, right) and we didn't have class Wednesday or Thursday. I used that time to do my online algebra assignment for the week and now I'm FREE for the weekend and I am just beside myself with joy. :) I got off work today and went by the grocery store and got some stuff for our Mother's Day dinner for Mama Sunday. I'm making green beans and taking the fixin's for a big salad. I'm also going to make a grape salad and I'm thinking about getting up Sunday morning and frying some okra to take, too. I've been craving fried okra all of a sudden. That's the Southern girl in me missing some real food.

I've lost 42 pounds now and when I got dressed today, I put on my most favorite Old Navy jeans that I couldn't even get on past my hips Christmas and they were loose this morning. Those jeans hung in my closet for TWO YEARS 'cause I couldn't even get them on. On my
best day, they've never been loose when I put them on. I weigh less now than I have in over 20 years. I met my husband weighing more than this. All of this is so exciting!! I wish I had time to exercise and walk more but I do what I can. School and work take up most of my time these days. We have started doing yoga at work a couple of days a week and that's so much fun and relaxing at the same time. Dr. P is an awesome instructor!

So I came home today, put my groceries up and went outside and enjoyed the sunshine and my first free afternoon in a month. I cut my grass (with scissors! I have very little grass. Ha!) and weeded my little flower beds. It was nice to get a few things done outside. I've been feeling a little overwhelmed not being able to get it all done.

We're halfway through the quarter now. June 15th is finals. The next week's my birthday and the week after that, my vacation. It'll be here before I know it. First quarter will be over and I'll be well on my way to doing whatever it is that I think I want to do when I grow up. I'll be glad when I figure it all out.


  1. Daddy said Where is your weedeater? See you Sunday. Love you

  2. It's out of string and I've been too lazy to go to Lowe's!! :) And also too lazy to get my lawnmower out. Scissors worked this time. It wasn't very high. Love you!!!

  3. Congratulations. So happy for you. The best part about losing weight is fitting in clothes and having people say "have you lost weight", "you look terrific". I need to lose 50 plus myself. You are a good motivator.
