Yes the snow has stopped! You heard me right! Over the weekend we received two inches of the awful white stuff!! But it is all melted and I am happy once again. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and all is right with the world.
Had a great time in Gallup taking the prom dress pictures. If you haven't seen them...they are here. They had some pictures out of when the girls where little. Gosh how time flies!! But one thing hasn't changed. They always loved to play dress up and get their pictures taken!!! Wish I had digital images of them...that would be fun.
The second piece of paper dried despite the snow and rain. Very cool! And the color is fabulous! So I won't have to add any. Which is great! Now I can start assembling the sculpture. Woohoo!
Started walking as my exercise program. 45 minutes almost every day! I am impressed with myself! I have always hated exercise but I have actually been enjoying the walk. Up and down hills too!!! A few stray dogs to add interest. Haven't had to run yet...so it is all good!
I have been having trouble eating recently. With gastric bypass...your stomach becomes very small so you have to chew food ....really chew it!!! But lately, my food has become "stuck" and I can only get a couple of bites down. So therefore, my food consumption is low. Causing some icky side effects. HAIR LOSS!! Hair is coming out and at this rate...I will be bald!!!! So have a figure a way to get more food into me. Other than that...all is well!!
For the feint of heart...look away! No I did not animate this. This is just what my stomach looks like now. In case you were wondering. I started out at 365 lbs.!! I now weigh 225lbs. Do the math! I can move around now and take care of myself. I am only 5' 3" so it was hard to get myself around. I was considering getting a motorized cart. No kidding! Had a wheel chair for when we needed to go places that involved any kind of walking!!! No wheel chair now!! I walk my own self around. My goal is to loss at least 90 more lbs.
I know I took a drastic step...but I was in drastic shape. Just thought I would share a bit more detail about my weight loss. Hope I didn't gross you out?!
I best get myself out into my studio and get to work. It has been so nice visiting with you. Come back again. The coffee is always on.
Have a magical and blessed day!!
