Happy Wednesday to all of you! I was pretty nervous about this morning's weigh in, but I'm happy to report that I'm down one pound this week. I'm thrilled that I lost the pound that I gained last week, so I'm where I was 2 weeks ago. 7 pounds to go!
I want to give some blog love today... first to my fellow MilSpouse blogger at Faith & Deployments. She just welcomed her husband home from overseas and it's been a trying wait for her - he kept calling her to tell her he was on his way, and then plans changed. I can't even imagine that kind of emotional roller coaster. Way to go, girl! And enjoy this unforgettable time with your soldier!
I also want to introduce you to a life-long friend of mine over at Lap-Band Momma. We've known each other all of our lives and I'm so proud of her journey to weight loss and health. If you've ever considered weight loss surgery or if you're just curious, please follow her story. She just started blogging last month, so it won't take long for you to catch up with her. So far she's chronicled her weight loss journey from when she started gaining weight back in high school until where she is today. I had so much fun with her when she came to visit me and my family last week. I hadn't seen her since she had the Lap-Band procedure 18 months ago. I have so much respect for her as I had no idea how much life changes once you have this type of surgery. She has a little boy who is just two weeks younger than my Autumn and she's an RN, so I think she offers a unique perspective.
I'm in the middle of writing the second part to my Home from War post. These have been so hard to write, but I've found it to be a therapeutic process. It'll be up tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that.
