And what Has been going on in my life???

and first and for most i've had a wonderful holiday season. One of my favorite times of a year. i can truly say this had to be one of my favorite Christmas' ever. and unless you don't know from my facebook already, this is my bestest present, Katie was able to get her brothers to cooperate in giving me this gift. funny Bill was feeling a little bummed that we didn't have alot of cash flow like we "used" to. but it didn't matter. the kids were more excited to see us open the gifts they bought for each other. of course Albert came out early. i made brunch........ and there was just so much peace. lets see what else.... Sammy is doing great from his shoulder surgery. Bill got surgery and too is doing so well. New Year was quiet, which i am more than happy with. Other than that yucky 24 hour stomach virus i was "blessed" with. i have been feeling really good.
I didn't make any New Years resolutions, but i would like to continue on the same journey. In 2010, i had three goals hike 10 miles, bike to work, and kayak. well I biked to work, i was able to kayak again. and i was able to do several 6-8 mile walks. my foot issue kept me from doing the 1o mile hike in October. so hopefully this year i can give Melody that 10 mile hike :0). She is in no hurry. there were times that I biked more than 20 miles, .... I am sure I can get the weight moving again....... seemed to lose a little and then plateau for a long time, lose a little, then plateau for a long time. In the past year i have learned to not focus on the number. and that has been a huge "weight" lifted off my shoulder *pun intended. I am happy with who i am, but MOST importantly i am feeling so damn good. this coming year Bill is supposed to get a bike so i hope to do more biking in 2011, i'd like to hike different trails in 2011, I'd like to be more understanding of people in 2011, and less judgmental.
Oh and one last thing, I am buddying up with my Bestest friend Christina and joined Weight Watchers with her again. as my support down in Pittsburgh is decreasing and will be completed this year. i am missing the one on one counseling. I have been so used to Calorie King website i was so surprised at the WW online tool sight.... it is amazing, fast and easy. Since WW has changed this year to follow more the plan that my dietitian from Pittsburgh put me on. I find this a good choice. somebody asked me that why would i do that since i have the "lapband"? and I am not sure how to answer this. as i've always thought of the lapband being a tool and not a fix (cure) I've had the free support from the Pittsburgh Study for 3 going on 4 years. I still have to watch what i eat, how much i eat, when i eat...... the Lapband isn't magic. The Lapband is the greatest thing i've done and i can't imagine not having the support it gives me. I will never be able to binge on a meal like i used to..... it just won't allow me.
I am still incredibly content with my job. speaking of which i must get my butt in gear because i do have to work today. well here is a brief update......... have a blessed day
