Change is good... Right?!?!

Well, if change isn't good then I am in a bad place. lol

We are finally settled in at my mother in law's house. I have completely changed my eating habits. We no longer are owners of a home. I have gone back to work... Well for 1/2 days last week... Tomorrow I will probably come straight home and go to bed. Who knew my energy level would take so long to get back up and running. Times they have been a changin'

I look back to August when I was finally getting close to starting this surgery adventure. I was just not happy at all with the way my life was going. My weight was not budging. A friend had me try the Advocare 10 day cleanse. I lose about 10 lbs. But at my weight at that time a 10 lbs loss was hard for me to see. Our house was not getting attention, we actually decided that it would come off the market as soon as the contract was up.

The months started flying by and before we knew it it was October. October was full of Dr. appointments and stress. Then in the course of a 2 week period, my surgery was here and our house was sold. CRAY!!!!

It has been 3 weeks and 3 days since surgery and I am down a total of 37 lbs. since August.
  • 10 lbs from the cleanse in August
  • 13 lbs during the 2 week liver shrink diet
  • 14 lbs since surgery
Friday, I realized my jeans (the ones that were tight a month or so ago) were TOO BIG!!! That would be 2 sizes since school started back in August. I am also down to the weight I was pre-fertility drugs and cray cray months of trying get preggo 4 years ago. 

On the other change, we closed on our house this past Wednesday. It was a tad sad to me since it was my first "big girl" purchase, but we are in the best situation possible shy of living with family for a little while. We have the opportunity to save some major cash for the next few months. We also have the opportunity to wait/look for the perfect house to come along. I am beyond blessed and am genuinely in a super happy place! 


  1. WOW!!! Look at you GO! Down 37 lbs ... CONGRATULATIONS!!! I know it has to be hard work. That is just great news and also the fact that you're feeling so great about all the changes that have happened / are happening. I can't wait to hear about the hunt for the perfect house when you find it!
