It's been five months!

October 22nd 2012 21:52
Well, it's been five months since my surgery and I am happy to say I am still losing. It's only about a pound a week but hey, I'm down 70 pounds and all I need to lose now is 15 pounds! YAY. I don't figure 15 pounds will change my size so much so I have begun a shopping bonanza! It is so much fun buying things in the ladies department and even juniors!

I am now a believer and proponent of lapband surgery. I've struggled my whole life and all it took was a forty minute surgery to change my life completely! No more meds and I feel thirty years younger!

Update on Lapband

September 1st 2012 03:25
Everyone thought I was crazy for getting this surgery done, but I have to tell you it is the best thing I have ever done for myself! I am now down 54 pounds and I've lost 6 sizes. I am so happy. I still want to lose 25 - 30 more pounds to hit my ultimate goal and I plan to do it!

I just feel so good. When my Lupus isn't flaring I go to the gym and walk on the treadmill for an hour and I lift some weights. I'm old, but I still have it in me to accomplish this!

I wonder if it really works

I keep seeing advertisement everywhere about software that can clean up your computer and make it run faster. Most are in the price range of $29 - $49. I guess that's not high, but if it doesn't work, it's a lot. I have been reading online reviews about the different ones. The one I came upon called Iolo computer repair looks pretty good and good ratings. I asked everyone on my contact list if anyone had used it and I didn't get any response. I am curious if any of you have used it and if so, would you recommend it?

I'm so happy I got this lapband

Well my surgery was done on May 12th and since then I have lost 30 pounds! And it has actually been very easy. About the fifth week post op, I started feeling like I need to start exercising. I am going to the gym and working out with weights and such, but the best thing I am doing is zumba . It's hard, but fun at the same time and I'm thinking that has really helped me lose this much so far. I was supposed to do it today, but I think I have a flu or something, I just couldn't muster up the energy.

I like to think I'm fairly hip

When I was young I was cool. That's not my words but others' words. I was always on top of fashion, music, etc. I also always had very cool friends that others wanted to meet. As I got older, those things really seemed to mean less to meand that makes me sad, because the one thing I never thought I'd lose is my interest in music. My sons however are big time into it so it makes it rather easy for me to buy them gifts. My oldest son's birthday is next month and when I asked him what he would like he said a remo key tuned djembe 10. Okay, I guess I'm not as hip as I thought because I had to look it up to see what it was.

Have you seen those commercials?

July 13th 2012 19:29
There is a commerical on tv that just really makes me want to take action. It's the Shari's Berries baskets commericial. It is almost irresistable. Everytime I see it, I go online to their website and almost order. Well, I was thinking today, that since my son and new daughter in law will be back next week from Vegas that it would be nice gift to have waiting for them. They look so huge and ripe and I'm sure they are delicious. That's it, I've made up my mind. I'm ordering some today!

I like it

My son is getting married tonight to a wonderful young lady. I am so happy about this. They have been dating for five years and have lived together for the last three. A few months ago they bought a house and have been working on fixing it up. Before they headed out for Vegas to get married, they furnished the house and I must say that it looks really nice, although it is a totally different style than I would buy. The last thing they went to look at was rustic dining room tables. They picked one that is beautiful and I'm going over to let the delivery men in. Now, when they get back from Vegas everything will be in place. I am so happy, but I already said that, didn't I?

I kind of miss it

A few years back I sold real estate in Florida. It was a difficult job, but I enjoyed it most of the time. I remember when I decided I was going to do it. Everyone told me how hard it was to get your license. Well they didn't lie. The class wasn't bad because it was fairly short, but when I went to take the test, wow, was it hard! Fortunately I passed but then when I hooked up with a broker, I had no idea what kind of money up front I would be spending. Desk fees, cards and errors and omissions insurance cost, the later of which was more affordable than what I thought it would be. Anyway, the second year in, the market started taking a turn for the worse and after five years of struggling, I gave up. I do still miss it though, but I don't think I'd ever do it again.

I'm so proud of him

I am so proud of my nephew that it is difficult to put in words. He had a tough life with absent parents, raised by his grandparents that were never that great at parenting to begin with. Violence and other unpleasant things were part of his life. He made it though high school and then went into the Army so he could get the GI Bill for school. He went to war and came bank with a combat infantry badge and some other ribbons. He is now in college. Keep up the good work son! We are so proud of you!

Cool thngs

I love electronic gadgets and such, but since I am retired I have a hard time justifying new purchases now. I can't say I need it for work, not that anyone would stop me from buying something, it just isn't prudent. Anyway, I don't have a smartphone yet but when my contract is up I'm going to get one. The one thing that I want is an app or an attachment, whatever it is to use. Ah, a barcode scanner is what I'm thinking up. I've seen people using them and it is so cool.
