Remember me??????

Hello all!!!
OMIGOSH!!! It has been about 5- 6 weeks from my last post since I have blogged and I am soooo sorry to have been away so long! Life is crazy busy now and the girls are in full swing with softball & soccer. Every day is filled with work & then coming home to pick up or take someone somewhere. When may is over, I think I will be able to breathe again. Sorry for my absence.

On the weight loss front, things are looking up! I weighed in at 173.8 last Saturday...an all time low for me in I cant tell you how long!! I want to break into that 160s & am hoping my Memorial Day to make that happen. I will then take another photo. when I hit 169.5 that will take me to 50# lost. Its only 4.3# away!!! So close I can taste it!!! I am hanging in there. It feels so hard lately and my enthusiasm waxes & wanes but I refuse to throw in the towel until I see 150 on the scale. I need to start toning up though..I'm very "soft" & I don't like that. Cant stand that roll of fat under the boobs....what the heck is it with that???!!

An update on the taste buds....I got them back!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)!!!!! Happy Happy Happy!!!!! They came back all of a sudden about 1 week after Easter. My little Easter miracle. The ENT I saw said he thinks a virus settled in one of the nerves. I am thankful to have my taste buds back!!!

I am gonna get caught up on the blogs today. I have missed you all!! I promise I will stay in touch more.

Love to all~


  1. I was just thinking about you yesterday. How wonderful that you can taste your food again.
    Congrats on the weight loss and feeling better about yourself.
    Take Care Sherri

  2. Sherri, I've been mia myself lately. I just think it is sometimes hard to keep up with blogs and blogging! That's awesome that you're down to 173.8! Any tips on what you've been doing, because I'm stuck right now! I want to be 150 by summer too! Also THRILLED that you got your sense of taste back! What a relief I'm sure! So glad things are looking up for you these days!

  3. I am so glad to hear about your taste back. I was worried about that last week when I went to the dentist and told them about it and they said they never heard of that before.
    Great job on the weight - just keep doing what you are doing and you WILL reach that 150.
    Have a great day :-)

  4. Yah Sherrie! I thought they would come back with time!! And w00t w00t on the almost 160s! Cant wait for a new photo of you.

  5. Hey, You! It's good to hear from you again. I'm so glad to hear that your sense of taste has returned. I think most of us have been struggling some with our weight loss. I know I have. If you look back on my last couple of blog posts, you'll see the struggle I went through these past couple of weeks, and the great support that I received through it. Hang in there, you'll get there.

  6. I am so glad that your taste came back! That is such good news, I was worried about you:) I missed your humor and spunk! It does help that you think I am funny:)
    I am so excited for you with your weight loss. How great does that feel?
    I have forgotten how little time that I had when I had kids in sports. It was a crazy time, but a fun, fun, fun time. I had no identity when they were all done with sports! Now I get to watch my grandkids. I feel way less guilty missing their games!
    Keep on keepin on...as my friend Sherri would say!!!

  7. Sheri, thank you for the book suggestion! From what I could see online it looks very similar to the BFC but with low fat options and a few other twists. I see the book is available at my local library so I think I will check it out! It might be what I need to get kick started again. Thanks!

  8. So glad your taste is back! And that you are still on track. Way to go!

  9. How are you doing?
