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!
