    1st 5K!!

    @AustinJ Thank you and good luck in April! That's awesome! @CheeringCJ Thank you! I've already started looking for my next 5K! I signed up for the Great Inflatable Race in November and I'm really looking forward to that one. I'm hoping I will be able to run a little more on my next one!

    1st 5K!!

    I did it y'all! I may have walked the majority of it, but I finished and that was all that mattered to me! I may have even shed a few tears afterwards. My mom, brother, and sister-in-law did it with me. (I'm the one in the green socks.)

    1st 5K!!

    Thank you guys! I will definitely let you know how it goes!
  11. I have my very first 5K on February 24th!! I've always wanted to do a color run and I am finally at the point where I feel like I can actually do it. I'm so excited!!!!! My brother and sis-in-law are going to be doing it with me. I've been so lucky to have a great support system in my entire family.
  12. I am so thankful for my new tool. I cleaned out my closet a couple of weekends ago and I had to get rid of more stuff than I kept because it was all too big! I have more energy and I just feel better about myself in general. For anyone contemplating weight loss surgery, I say go for it! October 2017 February 2018

    I joined the loser's bench this morning!!

    So sorry I haven't been around! I am feeling really good! I had some gas pain after surgery that lasted a few days, but those seem to be gone! I went for my follow up last Monday and the doctor said I could start eating soups with small chunks. I had forgotten how good it feels to chew! He said if everything is still looking good come Monday that I will be able to do soft foods!!!! So excited to eat some scrambled eggs lol Other than that it's just going to take some time to really get the hang of everything. I had a small OMG what have I done the day after surgery, but that has subsided. I am soooo thankful I did this and I can't wait to really start using my tool. I've lost 18 pounds since surgery!!!
