From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah!

I had an AMAZING relaxing time on my vacation.

Ya know!

An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

leavin' on a jet plane...

I can say without a doubt that I can fit enough clothes for 7 days in one small carry on bag. After losing 200+ pounds your clothes are so much smaller.

Yep and doing laundry is a lot easier and a little more enjoyable now!

Now off to bed since my flight is an early one.

haters gonna hate...

I have caught myself doing some bad, bad things lately....

I have been concerned with what others think and or say about me. I don't know where this insecurity is coming from. I have always been a very outgoing, self-confident lady.

I was very fortunate to be surrounded by a ton of AMAZING plus size ladies when I was in my early 20's They inspired me and taught me to love me for me (I don't know if any of them realize how huge of an influence they were to me, I know I need to tell them one day) and I also grew up in a household where I was not defined by my weight. I was loved for the person I am on the inside.

I never let others opinions concern me. I have always been very outspoken and never ever afraid to tell someone What's up!

I have caught myself being so negative lately and that's so not me. I know I need to change this.

So today I had an WTF the moment What is wrong with me? I don't care what others think of me. If you think I'm too thin, don't eat properly, made the biggest mistake of my life, look like crap, am a bitch...oh well


I am a bitch and

This bitch is back...

so haters just hate...

I know who I am and I LOVE me and that is all that matters :)

If you don't like me remember it's mind over matter; I don't mind and you don't matter...

btw I know you read this

I am


The US needs help. This is just heartbreaking.

Obesity rates are on the rise

and YEP weight loss surgery....a life saving surgery is considering a cosmetic procedure.

I'm not a morning person...

Dear Creepy Guy at Starbucks,

Please stop trying to speak to me. You scare me a little bit.

Thank You,

What a pain in my tummy!!

Yep the pain, oh its still here or there for that matter..

Peace, Love, and Music

I needed to create a new workout play list. Music is my life and music helps me push myself even further whether I'm running or using the elliptical (aka the devil) or doing whatever insane workout routine I've dreamed of this week.

It's not personal, it's business...

So if you already follow me on twitter then you would know that I am going on vacation soon. I am so excited it's not even funny!

I think the reason I am so excited is the fact that I never ever take real vacations. See if you know me you would know that I am a total work-a-holic. Type A - yep me...I might be a little bit of a control freak.

First attempt at making protein ice cream

Details to follow :)


Oh let me count the ways I love you!

#1 I can hit 10,000 steps so easily. I think this is due to the fact that I am on my feet 10+ hours a day at work walking around in circles.

#2 You hold me accountable. If I am having a lazy day I know I have to go run or take the puppies on a long walk to hit my goal.

15 months post op rny

A little over 15 months post weight loss surgery and at goal :)

school school and more school

So as much as I have enjoyed having these past few weeks of summer off from school. I feel as if it is now time to return. Well that and my registration date is 07/21. I am torn. I don't know what classes to take. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up...but wait Liz you're almost 32?! Yeah but I'm still growing up :)

Last night I roll out of bed and stumble into the bathroom and I step in a huge puddle. Since the bathroom light was off I swore that I stepped in dog pee. I was pissed!!! My dog would never pee in the I'm thinking "oh no he is sick/something is wrong" but as I was making my way to the light I realized this was a lot of pee. After turning on the light I see water. Water every where. First thought "YAY I didn't step in dog pee". Second thought "Oh Crap!"

So today came the plumber if that's what you would call him. I will call him over worked and under-paid worker guy! I came home to this beauty.

Yep! He found a leak in the wall and fixed it. I hope it really is fixed. I don't want to deal with this crap over the weekend. Oh and the holes will be fixed after it dries out. Does anyone else find it really unsettling that there is only a thin wall separating me from creepy neighbor guy? ***eak*** think I need to cover the holes somehow!
My little man is going grey!

You are too thin!!

First off:

Shut up!

TMI con't

So the urgent care visit was 06/29. I went home pissed off and in pain. I don't like Dr Meanie and I never want to go back to that urgent care again. I can now say without a doubt that he just didn't understand the needs of a post op gastric bypass patient. I am finding that a large amount of people in the medical community don't understand up #WLS peeps. They need to start getting a clue because the #WLS community is only growing larger everyday.

the feeling of death.../TMI


and super super long venting included! And I still left out tons of details since I'm sick of typing :)
