2011 Wrap-Up



Wow, what a year 2011 has been!  I made the decision to take control of my health by having lap-band surgery and for me that was the best decision I could have made.

I started off 2011 really sick.  I got strep throat 3 times and was having a lot of headaches and feeling nauseated all the time.  Other than being really low on vitamin D, they couldn't find anything wrong.  I truly believe that a lot of the health problems that I was having were weight related and from not getting any exercise or proper nutrition.  Since losing weight I haven't been sick much at all!

In 2011 I was in 2 friends weddings and traveled to Florida (twice) and Honduras.  I had lots of fun and am looking forward to traveling even more now that my weight is not holding me back.

This was also a hard year for my family.  I lost my Aunt Joyce on my dad's side of the family and my Uncle Russ on my mom's side.  Through it all, I can say that God is still good and it makes me cherish my time with my family even more!

I got a new car, new roommates and braces.

All in all, 2011 was a good year!  But I am most happy about losing 60 pounds and feeling so much better!

Looking forward to what 2012 will bring!
