Long Time No Blog

It's been almost two months since I've blogged. I've been a secret blog-stalker. I just haven't taken the time to blog. So here's the "skinny" on what's been happening in my life.
  • I had surgery on December 1st to remove my cyst. It was the size of a basketball and had wrapped around my uterus and right ovary 6 times!!! It killed the ovary so they doctor removed it and my right tube.
  • I got into a wreck the day before my surgery!!! It wasn't my fault - and I got my pink accents I've been wanting on my truck so it turned out well!!!
  • My scales have been stuck for as long as I can remember....but I did buy all new pants - size 16!!!
  • I finally got to go back to work on January 3rd. I missed all my kiddos and I think they might have missed me too!!!
  • I've changed my teaching style to the "old school" way I used to do is working and I couldn't be happier!!!
  • I went for a fill today....Dr. Speigel scolded me for not losing enough weight and wouldn't take my cyst as an excuse!! He can be tough sometimes!!! He gave me a fill - I'm at 7ccs now. I told him I am going to be a better bandster!!!
  • Today is the day I'm going to start walking again. No excuses!!!
That's pretty much it. I guess I haven't blogged because my progress had stopped. I am hoping this fill (and my lecture from my surgeon) will jump start my weight loss!!!!!
Oh yeah...looking back at my old medical records I have lost 96 pounds from my highest weight!!!! WOOT!!


  1. 96 LBS! That's AMAZING!!

    It sounds like you're already getting back on track. Good job!

    So glad you're recovering from the cyst and car accident. It sounds like it could have been much worse.
