Believing in yourself no matter what

"The mighty oak was once a little nut that stood its ground.  -Unknown"

I am not perfect...I make poor choices at times...don't always eat right...don't always get all of my exercise in...but I know that I will be successful in reaching my target weight next year and gaining good health through the process.

120 Days Since Surgery

The last month has not been the best for me in the weight loss area, but I know what I have done and what I have not done and will fix that this month.  I did lose six lbs this month, but it should have been more.  I have eaten some things with a bit higher fat content and I have not been exercising the way I am supposed to on a daily basis.  Well, I know what I am not doing right so I will fix that this month.  I have picked up my exercise a little bit, but I have not gotten it where it needs to be, so I will do that this week.  I will be on travel for work so I will be able to work out at the hotel.  I also know what I am eating that I am not supposed to eat and I have already made those changes.  Again, with being on travel I will do pretty good with this because it makes no sense for me to buy food at a restaurant just for myself, so fat free refried beans will help me get through the three days on travel and get me back on track.

See, the sleeve surgery is not a miracle maker, it just helps you, you still have to make the right choices and exercise.

Well, here is my 120 day picture and I added a few pics I found from 2007 when I was taking before pics.

Halloween 2011

Our town had a community carnival for Halloween.  So, we chose to go to that, donating one can good per person, and not do trick or treating.  It was a nice night and Izza had fun playing the games, dancing and getting in the jump house.  She got a moderate amount of candy that will fit in a lunch size paper plate, which is perfect as we restrict candy in our house.

It was a great memory for our first Halloween together.  Here are some pics...
