New Year, New Life

So much has happened since my last blog post!  Where do I start?  In July 2013 I decided to go back to college.  It was my reoccurring dream that I had classes and couldn't find them. I didn't know my locker combination, had papers due and all kinds of other school trauma!  It has been my regret that I didn't finish school.  So I went back.  With 19 hours or CU's I started on my journey to be a teacher.  In January 2015 I began student teaching.  Wow, that experience is for another blog! lol  The best of it was teaching second grade with a sweet friend.  I learned so much.  I was offered a job in August of 2014 to teach English Language Arts and Reading in 6th grade.  I love, love, love my job!  It's the best thing, besides my family, I've ever done!  

I will spend time talking about my kids, job and life but I really want to talk about my journey with weight loss.  In June 2014 I had weight loss surgery.  I received the gastric sleeve.  Since then I've lost 87 pounds.  I have a total weight loss of 112 pounds.  I still feel like I have a way to go but the reality is I will be happy with another 20 pounds but would like to loose 53 more.  

I go in January to see about a tummy tuck and having my arms done.  So this blog is going to be my journey with changing my body.  I will share my struggle and my joy!  I totally love the woman I am and want to grow every day into a stronger, better, more loving, laughing giving woman.
