If at first you don't succeed....

Getting another chance to do it right....

There's not a lot of fat old people. I want to be an old person, so I guess I need to eliminate fat from my future.

It's not going so well

A common goal in life is to find someone to share that life with. Someone who is going to love you on the bloated days, hold your stomach so the cramps go away, someone you can make you laugh and hold you when you cry.

I have that person. I also have that person who when they decide they aren't going to have dinner at dinnertime but rather at 10 p.m. and that includes a run to the border, well he's considerate enough to ask me what I want. And as I love him, well I order right along with him.

We've been married for almost 13 years, together for 14 1/2. Since marriage, he's gained over 100 pounds and I've gained and lost about 50. Our first 3 years of marriage (ie, before kids) we ate out every single night. We didn't like to cook, we wanted to go out and when we ate, oh boy did we eat.

So this is why when he tries to lose weight, I sabotage him and vice versa. The last few nights, it's been all his fault! Not really, I just don't say no. We've talked about it, we've said "I have to do this for myself, please support me" and we have every intention of doing just that and then...we don't. We agree to go out for dinner, then it turns into lunch the next day and so on and so on.

In between those glutoness moments, I haven't been exercising. On Monday I stepped off the curb and something cracked in my right knee. It hurt like an SOB. Then that night son wanted to learn to ride his bike with no training wheels which had me running next to him (hey, that's exercise) and the day after, my knee was so swollen. So I've not walked since Saturday. Add to that some other medical issues...and I don't know how long this 4th incarnation of this blog is going to last.
 
About the Author
Shannon (SNOWBIRDI)

There are few decisions in my life that I know, without a doubt, that I made the right choice: Marrying my husband, having my children, and moving to Iowa.


I'm a 37 year old mother of an 9 year old girl and a 6 year old boy. I was a Stay at Home Mom (SAHM) for 7 years which is 6 years longer than I wanted to be.

I finally got to go back to the working world only to be slapped down less than 2 years later. After taking time to lick my wounds, I realized this was a blessing in disguise and I took the opportunity to go back to school. I have a degree in History but don't do anything with it other than kick butt (unless it's against my husband) in quiz shows. So I went back for my Medical Assisting degree and have completed 2 semesters. This is my last summer as a SAHM.

This blog is now into it's 4th incarnation. First it was about my weight loss struggle, something that is lifelong for me. Then it was about parenting, which is also a lifelong struggle for me. Then it switched back to  being a stay at home parent again after being in the working world. And now we're full circle back to my weight loss struggle which can be life or death I'm learning.

Enjoy!
