A Long Time

It has been so long since I have even checked on my blog. I look back over some of the post and think about where I have been and what I have been doing. It seems like I haven't been doing very much. But I have. You ever feel that way?

There have been days that I had to make myself get out of bed. There have been so many days that I have just lost track of them. I suppose I had no idea how my life would change when I made a few decisions. Yes - you all know by now about our adoption. That really was one of the largest life changing experiences that I have ever had. Until...

I quit smoking! I cannot believe how much I depended on those nasty cigarettes. A few diet cokes and a pack of cigarettes and I was set for the day. Oh yeah - I would snack here and snack there but sit down to a meal. I didn't have time! A smoke and a coke.

Not anymore. Now I have to eat. LOL
Anyway...Since I quit smoking, I gained weight. I have never been that big in my entire life! 150 pounds by the docs scale! I never, ever imagined that I would weigh that much. Not me! I knew I had to do something. And something I did...

I got mean! I'm not joking! Oh yeah - that was hormones. Yeah - the menopausal hormones. Horrible little things! But I am all fixed up now. I got me some hormones in a bottle! Yeppers, all fixed up now. LMBO

Lethargic? No, not at all. Just plain darn lazy! You couldn't melt and pour me out of the house. I think my dear husband must have thought that the aliens had taken the real me one night while he slept and replaced me with some, some, something... Something horrible! And then...

I remembered the doc had requested that I also take a multi-vitamin. Oh yeah, I was thinking...Pump me up with hormones and vitamins. I'll eat more than the boys and never see my size 5 jeans ever again. But...Spring is here and the aliens have returned me.

I'm walking at least 1 mile almost ever day, I'm eating better, I'm active again, I'm laughing again and I'm loosing weight. Size 5 jeans - look out cause I'm on the way!

Well hormones or not my dear, I am so glad you are still alive and kicking! I have missed you! Its been so long. I have also been avoiding the computer a bit these days, mainly because everytime I get used to a computer, I have to give it to one of the kids and start again! LOL!

You will be glad to hear you are not the only one who has gained weight, Im not game to step on the scales, but my clothes are all tight and the pants that swam on me last year fit snug now so I am thinking I need to get off my butt and do something about it.

You will have to upload some pictures of the boys, they must have grown so much in the past year. I know mine have. Take care, glad you are back.

Hugs and smoochies xxxoooxxx

You are so kind! I have been thinking that I will have to give up the computer pretty soon to the boys. They have come so far mentally that it really surprises me. It is so hard for me to believe that one of them is about to turn 15 years old. Time has flown! Yes, I will have to post some pictures of them. I now look up to 2 of them.

Sorry to hear that you have gained but it is nice to know that it isn't just me that the pants are snugger on. I have managed to cut back on what I eat. I have really cut back on the meat. I really just don't like the taste of it that much anymore. My biggest downfall is sweets. But yogurt sure does help me in that area. I walk at least a mile a day and that has also helped. I am starting to get active again.

Thank you for all the love that you send!
