Well so far I have lost about 5 of the pounds I gained. That’s a start and I am gradually working my way back. You know we can sit down and write what all we are going to do and have it all planned out but when a box of donuts roll by and you will forget your whole plan if you don’t have any willpower. I realize now why the nutrionist kept repeating and instructing us to not reintroduce thosre foods we love back into our systems. Because this could be the catalyst that restart weight gain. But when you taking classes to prepare for your surgery. That stuff just don’t stick until you are here were I am at right now. Exercising is so important and you have to do it. I don’t care if you are just sitting in a chair doing it. Just do it.

So I am encouraging anybody that is considering these surgery to pay attention in the classes and listen to what your nutritionist and doctors are teaching you. Because they are the experts and they really know more than we will ever know about this process.

Love peace and happiness! Have a blessed Christmas!

Blessing from Tracy

On a mission to get back on track.

Good morning person! I got some bad news this morning. I step on the scale this bitch had moved up 13 pounds. My knees gave out on me and I fell to the floor. I was so devastated and distraught that I passed out for a few moments.

Now let’s stop right here. Let’s marinated on this for a few minutes. Let’s think about what got me here. First of all I ran out of my protein and didn’t drink them for about 2 or 3 weeks. I endudge in some buffet meals, Thanksgiving, not exercising, stayed started drinking soda. The list go on, and on. My first sign that something was amissed was when I put on a pair of pants that was loose before but was now tight as hell!! I couldn’t even sit in the bad boys. 🤔 I knew I was going have to weight Myself the next morning.

Now here thing…..I am very aware how 10 pounds can turn into 10 more pounds and another 10 pounds. So I am on a mission to get back on course. Most people would just give up and not be able to regroup. But not me. I refuse to get caught up in my daily life duties and neglect my weight. Shoot I like looking sexy in my clothes and being able to stop traffic. 😉. Lol…but for real. I can’t go back to were I came from. I am on a mission to get back on track. Heck no it is not easy but it can be done. Keep me in your prayers as I regain my focus and drop these last 30 pounds that I have been trying to lose since I started this journey.

Love, peace and happiness!

When you are to busy to be busy.

Good morning beautiful people! I know I have been missing in action for about a month but things have really been hectic around here in my house. For starter my Mom’s house that she was renting had mold in it and she has been staying with me because she had severe Asthma and we are not taking a chance, Now let’s pause right there. When a woman reaches adulthood she usually moves away from her parents home. So now after 20 something years Mama and I are back in the same house. Now don’t get me wrong I love my Ma and enjoy all the time we have spend together. It just add more on you when someone else is in your home. Plus she is so old fashion. I mean take this for instant…one morning I am up getting ready for work and she gets up also…at the crack of dawn and had no where to go. She heads into the restroom were I am doing my makeup and hair. I notice as she is making small talk she is looking down and does not look in the mirror. Finally she said “Tracy do you remember when I told you it was bad luck for two people to look in the mirror.” I stop and pause and walkout of the bathroom. Then I turn around and go back and tell her to go to her room and finish replaiting her hair I got to go to the work and big boy got to get to school. Lol. She came in the bathroom with me and interrupted my process and about made me leave. Man I love my Mama!!

Second thing is preparing my son the boy/man ready for high school graduation and college. We are taking SAT/ACT and taking College tours, filing out the applications.

Third thing…I am having issues with my blood pressure. This sucker is staying around 160/100 something every morning when I check it. Plus I have been having these headaches also. I mean I don’t know what else to do. The doctor is closely monitoring it and I check it every morning but I am struggling big time. There are days when I don’t even want to get up and go to work. I am so tired every day around 3:00 and all I want to do it sleep.

Then there is my job…..shaking my head. I love my caseload and the work I do. However things have change since my eyes have been opened and I see more clearly. Let’s just say I am really working hard toward starting my own restaurant.

I am back in this and will be posting several updates in the next couple weeks. Be blessed and not stressed and until the next time!

Love, peace and Happiness!
