I really wanted to focus on writing on here at least once a week but it seems I am so busy. Not knowing when we move or where I am throwing things out & going through them. I am trying to find time to edit photos. I still have photos from last summer to edit & I took over 300 in London which I swear is the best country I have been to so far. Weather sucked but the people were the nicest I have ever run into. Anyways this is a weight loss blog so back to weight loss....

I am stuck like Chuck on the same number for what seems like FOREVER. I really would like to lose 10-15 pounds more & I think I would be good. I have decided that I will be having surgery to remove the extra skin & my husband & I decided that I need to maintain my weight stateside for a year before I do it. Germany is easier since the fast food choices are limited & not on every corner. Being in the states will be a true test.

Will everything I have learned from Oct. 2009 until now work for me in the states. I pray with everything. I refuse to need to buy a bigger size EVER AGAIN.

I need some help. I eat salads at lunch & well I love salads I need other ideas. I am getting a little tired of the same thing 5 days a week. What are some good lunches to eat at work? My dessert is fruit & soy pudding but I need help with lunch!!

I am leaving you with a photo from London.It was taken at Ripley's Believe it or Not!

I have become the person that I had managed to say good bye to for almost 2 years. I am letting the stress of my life get to me. I have not exercised, I have eaten more then I should & things that I should not. I stepped on the scale & I have gained 4 pounds. I need to nip this in the butt right now. I can not allow letting the stress of Army life get to me. Part of being a military family is never knowing anything & then expecting to change everything in a drop if the hat.

My husband just informed me that he can reenlist but we are needs of the Army. A nice way of saying you get to move where we tell you & you have no say... AT ALL. This scares me but I am thankful that they are allowing him to reenlist. That is a big weight off of our shoulders. We should now by the middle of next week.

So honestly I have done nothing but eat, work & watch TV. I need to get back to the grind but between life, this weather & the happenings of my birthday coming I am just not into it. Sad part is I know that these are excuses & I know that people have far worse things going on in there life but do not let it stop them. Unfortunately this is where I am & how I feel. I am proud of myself for at least realizing my mistakes & knowing that I need to change before it gets out of hand.

Now for a change....
