Back in Business BABY!

Wow, it's been a REALLY REALLY REALLY long time since I last signed in on here. So much has happened since 2009, I don't even know where to start. I guess I'll start with my biggest accomplishment; on December 30th, 2009, I made the decision to have Bariatric Surgery. And here I am, 125 pounds lighter, with no regrets. GOD has been good!! It was a LOT of work, I'll admit that, but so worth it. And I'll be the first to admit, too, it was the scariest time of my life. I cried up until they wheeled me down to the OR! Here's my official "before" picture, taken just a week before the procedure. And below it is a picture that was taken a few months ago. It's still hard for me to grasp that this is really me! In my eyes, I'll always be that extra fluffy girl, that hid behind the baggy clothes and fake smiles.

My son Mikey was the main reason I did this, I want to live for him. I want to live to see my Grandbabies, and be active with them. I want to grow old with my husband, and just enjoy life.

Mikey will be turning 8 years old in less than two months, I can't believe it. I'm saddened by how quickly he's growing up, I truly wish there was a "pause" button. It's no longer "cool" for me to walk him to his classroom, no more kisses goodbye. It breaks my heart, I want to keep him 4 years old forever!!!

Well, this is all I have for right now, I have a few things I need to get done so I can go back to work tomorrow. I will post again shortly though, I have a lot more to update, and some new projects I've worked on!
