First night of 20 Year Reunion..

Well Tonight was the Alumni Social at the High School in Bountiful. (Bountiful High School)
I still can't believe that that is has been 20 years. I have posted just a couple of picture from tonight. These were my dear friends growing up. I'm still having a hard time looking at pictures if my self.. And next to these skinny minnies makes me look even larger and this is when I dont see the weight loss as much. Aaah just kills me.
Anyway had to do a shout out about these wonferful woman.. Oh and YES I am the only one that is a Grandma (Grandparent) of the whole class. : )

From Left to Right
Tracy (Pledger) Clemmons, Me, Sandi (Christianson) , (Jaymi Ranck) Vocual, Carolee (Flygard)

This is Peggie Hall, her and I hung out together the whole time. I would consider her my best friend in High School. This is the first time seeing and talking to her since High School. Isn't that sad that we lost touch with each other. I could just hit my self for not keeping better in touch with her.

My Full length Image for July 2009

July 15, 2009 I did this shirt because it use to me tight on my arms and around my belly, but now it is getting to big for me and just hangs on me. And the pants use to be stretch pants on me and are now loose. So for me this is a huge improvement. Kinda Fun to see and feel.

And look I am smiling.. Are you proud of me? : )

My 20 year Reunion

Well, I am coming up on the date for my 20 year reunion. I had a goal to be down 50 pounds before Friday the 17th so I weighed my self today and I am at 281 I have 2 more pounds to go to hit my goal and I have 2 days left including today. So I am going to aerobics tonight and hope to loose those last 2 pounds. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I have really been struggling with even going to my reunion, because I am not at the weight that I want to be. But I have had to look at the challenges that I have been faced with, and recognize the achievements that I have done so far. loosing 48 pounds in 2 months (three if you include April pre-surgery diet phase) I just have to deal with it and know that I will be that size 10 this time next year.

Another month Gone!

Well, it is July and I am a looser for not keeping up on this blog. I need to be better at this.

Well I thought I would post my progression images that I have. I just got a new hair cut today and so I took the time to put the images together. I am still working on the Full length images. I have really been having a hard time seeing my full length image. It has been a slower noticeable progression.. I know and feel different and do see a difference, but not as much of a difference that I can see and notice. So here are my face images, you can really see a difference.. I don't have a second chin anymore and you can see that there is a neck there. : )

This first image is from Jan 2009 which is my highest weight and then me today July 2009.

This image is the progression from Jan 2009, and all the other months there after.

Doing better today..

So I went to CJ's Baseball game last night and then after the game, the whole family went to the aquatic center to go swimming. And Steve and Kaeslyn joined me for the 8-9pm Deep Water Class.

It was great, they had in there minds that it was going to be a piece of cake and easy to do.
And as we continued through the class it got harder and harder and they were breathing harder and harder and I just smiled.

Steve was having a hard time with the legs and was using his arms more then his legs, and Kaeslyn was taking breaks every now and then.. to be honest I had a sense of great accomplishment because I was not struggling like they were and stayed at the same pace through out the whole 60 min's. I am loving the water aerobics more and more each day.

This morning I am not as sore and I think if I just keep up the classes everyday I think I will get more strength. I know I can do this and I just have to keep pushing along.

Feeling it today...

So I woke up this morning, to find my self very nauseated lightheaded and extremely dizzy.
My headache is at a 7-8 today so I wasn't sure if everything has something to do with my headache or the fill...

Well, I went to drink some water this morning and my nausea got worse and it kinda came back up a bit. So I think it has to do with the fill. Along with me over doing it last night to. I think my headache increase today has to do with my exercise last night.. I might have over done it, Because I went to the Deep water class and the aqua fit class... so, I worked out from 8 - 10 pm.. I think it just might have done me in today.... So now I know, I can only handle 1 class at a time. LOL.

Looks like it will be a lazy day today, until the headache subsides and I can walk with out spinning. I am laying back in bed as I type this..Gotta love Laptops.
