Sylvan Lake

We headed out to Sylvan Lake for the day and had fun. When we got there it was warm but windy, we thought it was going to be a crap day, but it soon heated up and we had tons of fun. Poor Jake almost lost his life as Tim chased him, thank God Jake is super fast. By the time Tim got him, the lifeguard said no rough housing!

The drive down was super eventful as you can see by pics. Jake and Nick were INSANE!


Scotty is going back to Arkansas for a few months so we decided to get together and go bowling. Scott is a bowling dude and has played since he was 3 years old. We also finally got ot meet his fiancee Sasha, she really really does exist!

My Mommie

My beautiful Mama passed away after a courageous struggle with cancer. She is one of the strongest woman I know.
There are so many lessons I learned from her and so many things I am today because of her. There were many times I felt growing up that I was robbed of a family but I realize now that still was taught many lessons though my life because of how I was raised.
I miss her and wonder how she felt in her last days. She was as impatient as ever in dying too though. Once she decided she was ok with dying, she could not figure out what was taking so long. She was unbelievable strong and I am so happy she is at peace and seeing her angels she loved so much!

35 LBS

35 Lbs

I am down 35 pounds. I can not believe it! It has been super hard but I must say feel great... sort of! I feel so much healthier, so much stronger and I love it but I still have a ways to go!

I have done things I never thought were possible. A friend reminded me of what I said in the beginning of this journey; we were doing sit ups and I found it so hard because I had this gut in the way. I remember saying that and it was so hard to sit up with the fat there. I can not do it ups with no problem, they do burn after a bit but I have no issue with space :0)

I am stronger mentally as well. I am just feeling great! Bigger Loser is over in 2 weeks and I may d the fall session still, depends on trainers. But whatever happens I will keep going!
