In Shock!!

I am so happy to report I am now 50lb down!!! I am amazed! that is half of a hundred and almost half way there!! Just about 60 more lbs and I will be at my goal! I my dip lower since it is said you gain some back. But I feel so blessed that I was able to have the surgery and get my life back! I never know how good it would feel to be where I am. On another note I am happy to report I really enjoy Japan. The culture is amazing, friendly and always smiling. I have felt so at ease. The only thing that saddens me is I miss all my friend and family. I miss my church! We found one we like here and they have so many of the values and wording as my church home but it is still not home. I am glad we found one we like already that holds true to the word so far and that is inviting. Well this is shot for now since I have no PC in our home but as soon as we do I will be posting more often and writing more as well!

67 day post op.....

Woohoo I am finally under 230!! 224 to be exact! And I can see it, I hit it a few weeks back and even though I have not lost anything since I can see my body catching up to the weight loss!! And even though I still am not in smaller jeans.. I was pushing it in my old jeans, they sure look better on. Anyhow I am so happy I have such supportive friends and family that make me feel loved and encouraged! '

We are now in Seattle til the 19 and then we start a new chapter in Japan! We miss our friends/family back in CO so much! I had a lot of swelling some of you had read and it is thought the low protein was the cause. I am much better now and those 6 lbs were just water retention!

I started doing the Jillian Michael's 30-day Shred and I am feeling it I missed today but first thing in the morning I am doing! I can't believe it took me 2 months to update i will do better.. our place in Japan is ready to move into and most of our furniture will be there before me and the boys join CC. Hopefully our express shipment makes it soon!

Things have been good for the most part. We did however loose our pastor about a week ago he was an awesome man of God and like a dad, we called him Papa Joe and I know he is in a better place and feeling good and cancer free but I still miss him and the thought of not hearing him preach or call and check on me making sure I am doing right hurts my heart, I know that is selfish of me but it is the truth. He will be missed by so many who loved him. I am sad i was not able to afford to fly back for his coming home.

Well I am off to bed soon! Thanks for reading!
