The latest...

Alright...so officially my family are members of the YMCA.  So that item is checked off on my list for getting into a gym.  The hubby signed us up on Sunday.  We haven't gone yet because I had my therapy appointment yesterday...or so I thought.  Went there to find out its next week.  I'm doing them every other week and forget we skipped an extra week.  I think its going to change to once a month.  I kind of feel like there's nothing else to say.  I know we're all work in progress but at this point in my life, it actually feels like things are going well and I'm doing okay.  No major stresses.  So back to the YMCA thing, we will probably go for the first time on Thursday or Friday.  Well maybe this weekend.  The weather is suppose to be really bad this week and I don't want to get out on ice or with crazy drivers, etc.  

No word on the Weight Watchers thing.  Last heard, we only had 11 people and HR extended it until this Wednesday for sign ups.  If no one else signs up for at least 15 people, looks like no Weight Watchers meetings at work.  Thats okay, because I'll just do it on my own either online or a meeting nearby.  I'm going to do something to keep myself accountable.  Also my husband wants to do this together, he has his own weight to lose.  Especially since his plan is to start classes in fall to get his Texas Peace Officer Certification to become a police officer.  So eventually he is going to have to lose the weight for the physical portion.  LOL.

As for other things, we had the party for the two oldest kids on Sunday.  Oh my goodness!  We're still exhausted from it.  We were there from 3pm until 8pm.  The kids didn't want to leave and I wanted to make good use out of the wrist bands we paid for.  We had fun and it went by so fast. 

Here's a pic of the kids before singing happy birthday.  A cookie cake for Aries and a Tinkerbell cake for Naty.  The crazy thing, everyone wanted to eat the cookie cake.  So we have a ton of cake at home.  Haha.  Thats okay, their working on it for desert after dinner every night until its gone.

In the meantime, I'm happy to add that I've managed to get most of my laundry done and keeping the house clean.  You have no idea how bad it has been over the past few months.  That has been a major issue for me.  When my house is tore up I feel like my life is in chaos.  I have also been cutting back on doing overtime at work.  I notice when I'm not here, things just do not get done.  Its a hard balance being a woman these days, maintaining home and working.  I definitely have to stay on top of my family to keep things in order and its working so far.  We'll see how it works once I have to start doing overtime again.  But I have missed being at home.  Spending quality time with my children.  One thing that my oldest asked me last Thursday was "why are no longer working late anymore".  Its crazy that he asks me that because he's become so accustomed to the routine.  I just told him I want to spend more time at home with them.  He was happy with that.

So as of this moment...just happy.  By the way, I'm still having good restriction with 6.5 cc's in my 10 cc band.  You think its gone but its still there.  I do have worries at times that I've stretched my band out.  It kind of sucks when you know there are no actual symptoms of doing this to know if you did it.  Only way to know is if I go do a Barium Swallow under the X-ray machine.  I'm waiting until June to do that and follow up with True Results.  I'm hoping by that point I can come in with a good loss.  Oh yeah, I'll also make sure to post up some updated progress pics since I haven't really done any since first starting the weight loss thing last year after surgery.
