We are BACK,....

from the girls getaway to Disney and Universal.

Boy was it hot.....but it was lots of fun. Aviva had a blast with my friend's daughter. They were the same age but did not really know each other. But they would walk around the parks holding hands and loved doing rides together.

It was nice for me to have a friend to talk to and understand what I was going through.

It was very hot...but everyone was sweating too. The Universal parks had misters so it was great to stand under them and cool off. The girls loved getting wet on some of the rides.

Hard to believe we go back to Disney (just Disney this trip) in a little over 5 weeks and staying at Animal Kingdom Villas. Aviva does not know we have a Savannah view so we will see animals out our balcony.

Cannot wait for that trip.

TWO days early.....

are you wondering what it could be?

Well, my goal before the surgery was to lose 70 lbs by my 3 month surgiversary. I was not sure that was going to happen because the scale was playing tricks on my the past few days.

But low and behold, this morning I am PROUD to say that I am now down 70 lbs or as I like to say 280 sticks of butter.

It is still hard to believe how my life has change. I am happy and so much healthier.

Though the past few days have been a bit rough. I have been having a few low blood sugars. Yesterday morning woke up in a sweat and my sugar was 59. Last night before Aviva was out of the shower my sugar was 53. I ran out of Glucose Tablets so my terrific DH ran out and got my a huge bottle of them. And again this morning was 59. But then later on in the day today it got to 195 so go figure.

Otherwise those incidents I feel great.

It has been awhile.....

Well....Aviva is loving camp...she was a little scared Sunday night but when I picked her up Monday she was very happy and telling me about her great day.

Wednesday they went bowling, yesterday they went swimming and she passed her swimming test. She even jumped off the high diving board. And today they are going to Plaster Castle.

She has 3 trips next week and one day they are having McDonalds for lunch.

In 11 days we are going on our Girls Getaway to Disney and Universal/Islands of Adventure. We are so excited. We are flying even though it is is close, it works out cheaper.

And I am now down 68 lbs and not even 3 months out yet (that will be on the 20th). I am feeling great.

UPDATE from my visit to the surgeon....

It went really well. They are very happy with my progress...Not even 11 weeks out and down 63 lbs and dropped my BMI by 11 points. All my vitamin levels were good...the B ones were a little high so they want to watch that. Go for more blood work in one month. My A1C dropped even more to 6.5...which is great considering where it started.

I get to add veggies to my diet...eating is hard enough but I am trying. I ate 2 meals a day and drink 2 protein shakes a day as well. I average about 750 calories which they say is fine.

I do the Wii Fit 5 to 6 times a week, walk 3 times a week and play tennis 1 to 3 times a week. Who would believe that!!

I feel great and so much healthier which is what is so important. Just wanted to share my good news.
