So it has been a little while since my last posting! I have been keeping on; keeping on. The best is yet to come and I can feel it in my bones.
I just got back upstairs from a 40 minute workout in the basement. Tonight I got the hee-bee jee-bee's! I have a lot of my Halloween stuff stored down there and some of my props freak me out! I keep thinking they are going to move and come get me but I suppose it puts the extra pep in my step LOL - Since I have started working out on a regular basis again I cannot believe my mood difference! It's amazing what a little exercise can do for not only the body but also the mind.
I still haven't heard from the Dr.Oz show. I'm thinking it might be a new year's resolution episode or something like that. The producer did tell me over the phone that they would stay in touch with an air date/time but I can't help but be anxious!
I almost have all of my Christmas shopping done. I can't wait! I did some gift exchanges yesterday and I have to say I thoroughly enjoy watching people open their gifts more than I do my own! I spoiled Michael this year; I can't wait for him to open his. I think my Mom is going to do Christmas dinner at her house. We usually have ham, mashed potatoes & all that stuff. It's crazy to think Christmas is less than 2 weeks away! I feel like I just finished cleaning up after Thanksgiving dinner ha-ha.
I need to get my butt in gear with this wedding stuff! I have to get working on sending out our invites/finding addresses. I only have a little over 6 months before the big day! There is so much to do that I rather not think about it. Now it is to the point where I am going to have to start thinking about it and get stuff figured out. So far I have a deposit down on the photographer, the venue booked and the invites in hand ready for addresses & that's it! I'm starting to feel the pressure! June 21st is the day. I hope everything falls into place.
I got 2 new pairs of glasses. The picture below is my sassy pair. I love them! I wish I could do contacts but I just can't. I get all pale in the face and almost pass out and I don't know why! The whole process of inserting it in my eye just skyrockets my anxiety through the roof!
Our tree all set up just missing the presents! I don't put them out until the night before just because my dogs would have them destroyed by now! Plus it adds to the excitement on Christmas morning; even though I'm almost 25, I still believe in Santa ;-)
My dress came in that I got for Christmas. I can't believe how well it fits too. I was expecting it to be a little small but it works! It had a funny sizing chart so I wasn't too sure. Also my Mom surprised me with new shoes to go with it!
My name is Marilyn and I am 27 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life and on May 1st, 2012 I weighed in at 338 pounds. This blog is about my weight-loss journey.
