Talking about low carb meals out - when I have Mexican I get chicken or steak fajitas & not eat shells just meat & peppers/onions/salad/salsa.
Ha ha! That is what I went out to mexican and had tonight!

Paranoid- they had it at Wal Mart it is very tart so I add some splenda and then it is pretty darn good, but when you are out you know there is sugar in them!

Hey Amber.
Glad you sold a few pieces. Silver. Pretty!
I'm right there with you on a weekend backslide...We had friends over...sausage peppers onions burgers all on the grill. All low carb, No problem. But one friend brought me my favorite Sam Adams summer brew, and another brought corona. I was lured by hot sun and cold beer. So 216...at least it wasn't up!

I will have to work on filling everyone in on this one! Better than unemployed wonder woman, which I am for the time being, LOL
So girls settle in we are still on this crazy ride together!!!

So lets go back in time to me being fat my whole life, but after having Bobby and my marriage was falling apart things got really bad!! Like over 350 pounds bad, finally in 2005 I thought I would try Atkins after I was too fat to be weighed for my tubal ligation. Well Atkins worked I lost 70 pounds pretty quickly went on a trip to Mexico gained 18 pounds and never went back that was in 2005. In Sept 2010, I weighed in at 305 it was my son's 10th birthday, I said enough, Tony wanted to get married, I knew I had to beat these problems, so I set out to change my life before I entered another marriage! I learned to exercise, which has now become a huge part of my life! And finally 1/17/12 I quit smoking for good! That was a 28 year old habit that needed to be broken.

So about the tucking, losing 150 pounds leaves some residual so I had my arms done before the wedding that pushed me to work out harder, then this past Spring 3/2/12 I had a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin, it proved to be a hard surgery but the results are worth it. And finally after 30 years, I saw onederland!!!!

So here is where we keep on going, I lost my job last week, 5.5 years and sorry corporate downsizing, but you know looking back at these pictures and all the good things that 2011 had for me, how can I worry??? I am grateful to God for bringing me this far and a great group of friends to share the journey with, so just waiting for his next plan for me. So in the meantime I am going to get myself well, focus on working out and getting back to my exercise groove,and enjoy this time to be a good mom and wife to my two favorite men in my life!!!!
Amber I went to your gallery. You are so much a true Wonder Woman!


For a very long time I can always find words to say but this time you have caused me to be speechless!

Mary- No all the kids are not mine, LOL I have the oldest boy, Bobby the rest are my nieces and nephews, thank goodness!!!

Yes September will be 2 years that I have been at this, it is a life change for sure, I sure wish to get to like 175 but whatever, I am happy where I am at as long as I can kepp exercising!

I am far from Wonder Woman, the daily peeps know all my faults, just a real person trying to get along with this and all the curve balls that life throws at you!

I feel guilty I was doing the rain dance hoping the game would be cancelled, but it is on, ughghg

Oh my goodness Amber I just saw those pics! You look just like Barbie with your great hair! I just love the color . Even if you still want to lose some weight you still look totally HOT! Your face is so thin and your arms are so toned. Zero flab! I really hope I can get my arms to look that good!

Really I am OK if I stay this way but darn I really want to be under 200 pounds it just sounds bad, LOL But I feel good that is the main thing, now to get past this surgery, man anyday would be nice now, Friday is 3 months, still getting drained weekly, cant run, cant do lots of things yet, that is what is ticking me off the most, but Monday it is just my aunt and cousin and kids at the pool so the bikini is being worn.

Today is niece day, Riley the 1st grader is in a play at school the star of course, more interesting is her teacher is my old college roommate who just refuses to talk to me--- we met in 6th grade, went off to college together and roomed our freshman year, after we graduated and I was in CA I was always reaching out to her and she just sort of blew me off, so now today I will see her, wonder what that will be like, she knows I am coming. I found my old boss in CA, he called me yesterday and left a messege found him on Linked In, he was the greatest, he handed me the keys to a brand new Lexus and said go get accounts, we worked at the most beautiful building in La Jolla, that was the best job I ever had.
Then tonight my other niece graduated kindergarten I guess this is a big deal they have a ceremony and everything. So lots of stuff today.
Tony is in Phoenix now today he is driving to San Diego for another meeting, I could not sleep last night, its not like I was scared, just unsettled or something without him, I am always asleep in like 2 seconds and last night I was tossing and turning, maybe some of the job stress too getting to me.

It's just going to take time! As long as they are still draining I wouldn't expect too much weight to drop. When that stops we'll be seeing you post amazing numbers!!
The rest of this year is going to ROCK!
