He's HERE!

Our beautiful baby, Noah Aiden Borders, came into the world on August 25, 2013.  We adore him so much!  But how could we not?  Look at that little face!  Aimee did great during her LONG labor, and she was a real trooper.  I'm so proud of her.

Been Busy

We've been doing a lot of home improvements around here.  We're painting, and laying new floors in the hallways and the bathroom.  Takes a lot of time and work.  But we're getting there slowly but surely.  The weight loss has slowed a bit, but it's still coming off in tiny increments.  But I'm fine even if I stay how I look now.  I feel so much better than before.

I did it!!!

I hit the 100 pound weight loss mark. I've lost 102 pounds so far! Woo hoo! And still counting. I'd like to lose about 30 more. But this has been such a blessing!

I've lost about 93 pounds now!

I'm doing pretty well now. I had a bit of a setback a few weeks ago. I had what they call an internal hernia. It's when my intestines twisted up around each other and blocked all blood flow to the lower part of my intestines. It was beyond painful. Had to have emergency surgery. But I'm better now.

I've Lost 85 Pounds Now!

I can't believe it's actually true, but it is!  It's been almost six months since surgery and I've already.  I'm feeling really good and positive.

Four Months Later...

It's been a while since my last post.  Laziness.  No excuse.  So, to date, I've lost just about 70 pounds!  I've been stuck here for a couple of weeks.  But at least I weigh under 200 lbs. for the first time in many years!  Woo Hoo!  I'm happy at the success of the surgery.  
Then to throw a wrench in the whole thing, I went and had a hysterectomy performed last Monday.  Not fun.  This was much more painful than the gastric bypass surgery.  Much, MUCH more painful.  Weird.  But I'm on the mend, and I'll be back to normal in no time. 
I'm so glad for the summer to be fading.  I really hate the heat.  Bring on the COLD!

Two Month Check-up!

I went to my two month check up at my surgeon's office on Tuesday and he says I've lost about 50 lbs now!  I haven't been exercising that much lately and I've got to get back into it.  I'm slowing way down and I know that's why.
