Hey everyone!!! =)

HI EVERYONE!!! Remember me? Lol haven't been here in awhile....THIS is what I've been up to these past few months that has distracted me from my 365!!! I am not even really doing it anymore. Sad sad to say that! But I have too much going on right now I can't keep up! That and we are moving in two months!! Back to the USA it is! Anyway, I have been focusing a lot on myself lately. Working out 5 days a week, eating right. Taking care of me. Next up is making a dentist appt! Smile Went shopping today. Got me a new shirt that actually fits (everything is getting too big now except for a few tshirts that were too tight months ago), my one pair of jeans that fit are getting loose so I needed a new pair. And I wanted a sweater but got this coat. Something I've never owned before. I bought it at H&M. So yeah...a lot of my pictures in the past few months have been weight loss related. Lol I just wanted to share with everyone. I'm 5 pounds away from losing a total of 50 pounds! Can you believe that??? I have been keeping a blog over at sparkpeople. I do the BLC here on preg.org. I have been posting there mostly. Some of you are on my FB so you all know this already Wink I'll probably post a 50 pound loss comparison pic later anyway! I'm loving it so far! I still have about 30-35 more pounds to lose. So I'm already more than halfway there. Yeah!!!!

I haven't posted here in a long time or shared anything!! I*m sorry!!!!

I really do hope to get back with it sooner or later! I need to! Smile Photography IS after all one of my favorite hobbies!!! I hope to do something with it in the future! I think the new me will help a lot Wink Don't you think? I also have something else in mind that I'm going to end up doing but that will come at a later time! I'm very motivated! By the way.... I don't mind sharing pics of myself anymore. Weird Smile I feel so much better about myself. It's been a rough road so far but I have survived this long! Wink

Wow, congratulations to you on your weight loss! I lost 119 lbs. nine years ago and it was such a long journey, but I've kept most of it off (just a bit of gain in pregnancies, working on losing that right now) and it totally changed my life! Doesn't it feel awesome to shop and buy what you like and feel good in what you buy?! Keep it up, you look fantastic!

Can't wait to see more of your photos when you have time!

Thanks gals!! Smile

Tracy... 119? Really?? Wow! Smile that's awesome!!! I love posting my weight loss stuff because I never know who out there has gone through the same thing as I'm going through now. It's nice to know Smile It is hard but I'm doing it! And loving the changes! And the clothes too! Wow. So many doors have started to open when it comes to clothes. I am so intimidated when I walk into a store. I feel like nothing will fit me. I'm so self conscious when shopping. I still have the mindset that I'm bigger and am trying hard not to reach for the bigger sizes Smile

Wow! Congratulations on the weight loss. I think I'll touch your picture on the computer screen so the weight loss vibes flow my way! Smile Hope to see some new photos from you in the near future, too.

You already know I think you're awesome Wink

I need to write you back on FB, I figured out my problem. I'm so glad I started tracking my stuff. TOTALLY opens your eyes to what you're doing *wrong* (in my case).

Hope you get back in the swing of the photography world. Love seeing your shares and miss your ABC challenge (still love that cereal shot, BTW).

I wanted to chime in as well to tell you what an awesome job you are doing! The stress of a major move like that would be enough to send some people back in the opposite direction. I really admire you for making your body and health a priority. I need some of that mojo too.

**sending you some mojo** Wink Thanks. I've been doing good stress wise. I had to have my son go one extra day to daycare because I just couldn't handle him being home that extra day. I am really focusing on myself right now. I sometimes feel bad about it but then again this is good for all of us in the long run. Smile He's home on Wednesdays with me and that's good enough for me for now. I've never been so selfish before. lol It feels nice.

You look fantastic, well done you! I'm sure you will get right back into the swing of things photography wise when the time is right. Your move sounds exciting and should provide you with lots of photographic opportiunities?!
