Hey everyone!

As of today, I am only 14 pounds away from my goal weight of 138 pounds.

This is an amazing thing for me since I have struggled through my journey for about 19 months now to get where I am at today. I haven't been this weight since college!

I am happy to report that I am getting better every day since I had surgery about 9 days ago. I had a hysterectomy and although I have been dealing with the pain for the last little bit, I feel that I have been dealing with the pain of losing my mom just as well.

It has been three weeks since she has passed away and I believe that she is truly watching out for all my family members...especially when we are ill or unwell. My sister Holly really needed her when she went into labour right when mom's funeral was happening! Yes, she ended up having a c-section and I believe that mom kept her back near Edmonton so that she would have been taken care of properly. I know mom wouldn't have wanted anything to happen to her.

Well, it was my turn with mom when I had surgery a over a week ago. I knew mom was with my for several days afterwards. And I knew when she decided to leave and be with dad.

My father still continues to go through a rough time and I think he will for a while. The only thing we can do is be there for him.

Myself? Well, I am healing and doing all right. Things in my personal life seem to be looking up somewhat and I am continuing to look forward and not backward.

I miss writing for the newspaper though. I miss working for the local newspaper and wish that I could continue to be employed there. However, the money isn't really the greatest so I have to resort to an office job where I can make a ton of money and make it on my own with my kids.

I believe I will get that job. For now, at least, it will do. Years from now though, I will make sure that I am writing and doing the things I truly want to do in life which is to write.

I miss it but I am making a new beginning starting today. I am going to continue to be positive and keep up with my outlook on life. It has never steered me wrong.
