LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! :) - pic of this little person... :)

I had an awesome weekend. I watched my older son's school choir sign at the mall then he and my older daughter had an ice skate party with other school kids. This mall is awesome and the ice skate rink is right there in the mall so we spent a LONg day there with the little kids visiting Santa as the older kids were skating, then the performance... And I was WALKING around ALL day and it was GREAT! I have to keep reminding myself that even if I never lose another pound, I am sooooo grateful to be walking. It's amazing. Of the food front, my new "shakes" came in the mail so I am going to try these instead of the Costco brand to see if they keep me fuller-longer. I have an appt with the surgeon after the 1st of the year to get my options for a revision surgery based on what the tissue does during this "mostly" liquid phase. Whatever. I am so happy with what I have already, anything else is icing on the cake. My real challenge is still my back. I can't express how painful it is to lay down or try and get out of bed and I have to do that several times a night with the baby. :) My ins. changed and started all over so I can't afford the $75 per visit co-pay to go to PT three times per week. We will have to make it once per month and the PT will give me mostly a home plan. :( It's still better than nothing.

I mostly lurk around here but I just wanted to acknowledge what a beautiful and courageous thing you have done - not only for yourself but for your kids. And to have the courage to bring another little one into your life... you're amazing. Somebody needed to tell you that... and today, it's me!

I haven't visited blogs in quite a while and when I came back to yours, I was blown away! Such a change! You look fantastic. I understand what you mean about not caring if you ever lose another pound. So far I have lost 129 pounds and I weight ten pounds more than you right now. I do want to lose another 60 pounds but right now I'm not losing, I've been maintaining while still toning and losing some inches. I am perfectly happy right now and I could probably stay happy but after a few months of being at this weight, I think I'm finally ready for the home stretch. I think after being so obese, our bodies and minds have to make a huge adjustment before making any more steps forward. We may make giant steps forward or actually decide we're fine where we're at. At any rate, the important thing is that we're living full and happy lives. My best to you and your new baby! :)
