6 months out follow-up appointment

According to the Dr. I am not losing as fast as others, but I am on track and I will need to bump up the physical activity now. My hormones are RAGING because I am getting my period back which is good because it means I am getting "normal" again but not good because PMS sucks. :) So, in order to start "bumping things up" I walked my son to school this morning! It was sooo awesome! I loved the crisp air, pushing the stroller (for my 2 year old), watching my big boy walk in front of me... :) I am loving my new walking shoes and plan to use them everyday!

I have a friend from church who walks her daughter to school and we are going to walk together every morning. Tomorrow my oldest daughter gets to play with the local high school marching band during the half time show (she is in 7th grade band) so I plan to wear my awesome shoes tomorrow night to help me navigate the large football stadium. I am a freak for pictures so I will no doubt be running all over the place trying to get the best shot of her on the field. I am excited that I get to go and watch her do something she enjoys so much. I am so glad that she gets a mom who is able to attend instead of the old mom who would have had to stay home.

On another note, I took this pic as we were walking out to the van to go to church on Sunday. My 5 year old LOVES to "help" my 2 year old and he is always looking out for her. I love how close they are. :)

My sympathies on the raging hormones -- I'm losing my period (perimenopausal) and let me tell you, it's ugly over here, LOL.

Your kids are just darling, and you're doing great! :)

Hi Lisa,

I've been reading your blog for so long, but was unable to read it since last year. Today, I was updating my blog bookmarks and clicked your link to see if it needed deleting.. And I am so glad I did! I am so happy for you!! The last time I read your blog was when you were still contemplating WTS and now a year later you look amazing! You worked hard and the results are simply wonderful!
Inspirational! :)
