Happy New Year 2011

Wow, can't believe we are finally here. Happy New Year to you all! I wish 2011 brings you everything you've ever wanted plus some.

I have so much to share with you since my last post. I know I promise to start getting better at posting pictures along with just entries. Let's see new things that have happened since my last post. Chloe now walks, Tristan is 2nd lead in his dance class, Steve and I went out on a date to a cocktail party, Ethan loves school and missed it while off, Brody plays soccer like a little star (he's only 1), I actually scrapbooked and I am still on Dr. Poon.

I still have to pick my word for this year. I have no idea what it will be but I do know I want to be at my 100 pounds off mark this year. I have Tristan's communion and it's a chance to get myself where I want to be and also get something special to wear for my first born's special day. I have so much planning for this event but I am so looking forward to it. It's going to be so special for our whole family. I am also going to work extra hard because it's our 10 year wedding anniversary in June. I can't believe I first married my best friend and have been happy with him and our beautiful children for 10 years married and we've lost count on how many together. lol No, I'm joking by June it will be 18.5 years together. Wow, that is a long time but it honestly feels like just yesterday when I fell in love with him.

I was actually able to scrapbook or rather I should say make some cards. Alexis came over New Year's Day and we sat and played for hours. Then bouncing with energy we decided to go out and watch Little Fockers, OMG!!!!! it was a really cute movie. I wanted more of a laugh but hey what do we expect when they've already done 3 of these movies. I just found that it all played the same old same old. I think they need to make that their last. Out of 5 stars I would give it a 3.

Now for the Dr. Poon update. As most of you who go to the clinic know Dr. Terry Poon has decided to leave and continue family practise on his own. I was so sad to hear this and also upset at the same time. He had been there since I first started and has continued to support me. I will as of this Friday be seeing Dr. Lau. I am nervous and excited all at the same time. I know I have gained a little over the holidays since I attended many parties and did have a couple of martini's hence the new 2011 banner. lol But like I say and write to many of you, pull up your socks and let's get right back to it. I know that during the holidays it's a hard time since everyone is stuffing something or other in your face but I can honestly say I still stuck to it as much as I could. But as of Jan 2 it was time to get re-connected with my life the way I now know it. I am hoping this is the same for you. I have enjoyed reading all your e-mails and posts. I continue to cheer you all on since hearing your success only helps me to reach mine. Let's make 2011 the year of success for all of us.

Hi Vern, so glad to hear that you are back on the wagon with the diet. I went to my first Dr. Poon visit today and know your recipes are going to help me a lot. I am to lose 40 pounds and I plan to do that by my 51st birthday at the end of July - completely doable, don't you think?

@ mammy2one - Doable...of course. I know you could totally do this.

@ bluerock - health is a great word because not only does it have a lot of meaning but there are two words in one. Heal is the other one. In order to have health you need to heal within. You will do find but must promise me to send me a picure once you finally hit where you want to be.
