    I'm excited about 2014. I accomplished a lot in 2013 and I can only imagine what god has planned for me in 2014. In 2013 I moved back to Texas, started a new job that is actually using the degrees I have, learned to relax and not to worry about everything, got back in church and got my momma to go with me. I bought a new car, went to Destin Fl, swam with dolphins, made the decision to have the lap band surgery and lost 58 pounds, several sizes and gained a lot of confidence. The clothes I'm wearing now are from 6 years ago back in my college day. My knee pain is pretty much gone. I no longer have the excuse of not being able to do something because of pain. I hoped that by having surgery I would be able to decrease my BP medicine but so far I haven't been able to do that but I'm okay with it. Even though it's not decreasing I feel great. 2013 was a great year for my church family. They started in March in the Holiday Inn conference room but by September we had a building and the congregation is continuing to grow. We have had several baptisms in Jesus' name. It's amazing how god works the church needs an accountant and guess who has a degree in accounting? That's right this girl. We need a music ministry and god provided it to us. 2014 is going to be full of a lot of learning and remodeling for the church. I normally don't do this but In 2014 I have the following goals: 1) Get down to 140 lbs. 2) Better my relationship with god. 3) Learn more about non profit accounting. 4) Grow professionally. 5) Grow emotionally. 6) Run a 5k.

  6. I have had a weight problem for over 10 years. It started out with just 20-30 pounds over weight but as I grew older and stressed I ate more and more. I would lose weight but I never maintained the loss. The biggest gain for me started about 3 years ago when I made the decision to move away from my family for my career. At first I was okay no weight gain but as I began missing my family the more I pulled away from the life I had created away from home and would dwell on how much I missed home. That's when I started eating more and more. Before I knew it I was 70 lbs heavier. I tried Zumba and walking to get the weight off but somehow I ended up with a cyst on my knee. Walking or even bending my knees have become painful. In Jan 2013 I made the decision to change careers and move back home. I started getting interviews quickly and was able to obtain a job doing exactly what I wanted for a great company. So that brings me to now. I'm happy again but now I have all this weight that is still here. My blood pressure is only maintained with medicine. I received a call from True Results to check to see if I qualified for insurance to cover it. (I had tried once before but didn't have a high enough BMI). On July 30th I went in to my appointment expecting to go home disappointed but I left with the goal of an early September surgery date. Insurance approved my surgery late August for September 19th. I am not sure my goal weight yet I would like to be down to 140 from 269 but I'm not sure if that's too much. I'm excited and nervous but ready. I still haven't told many people that I'm doing the surgery. I have some friends that I knew would support me that I told but I have others that are overweight and are content. They will not understand that for my health it's the right option. This is long winded. I started writing and I just couldn't stop.
