15 months!

Its a bird, its a plane, its KEYSER!

Keyser and Zeus, best buds forever.

"Helping" me cook :)

28 lbs 6.5 oz.....32 1/4 inches.
He wants to grow up big and tall like his Daddy :)

~He has a touch of eczema, but not too bad. Mostly on his calves and back of his arms. Nothing a little Aveeno Baby cant fix (better fix at 8 bucks for a small tube! I kid, I kid.)

~Like to knock his big noggin on everything. Doors, TVs, and floors are his favorite. :)

~Climbs like a monkey. He is always trying to get on the table, counter, and out of his crib. Thankfully for the last one, he has only done this once!

~Loves to groove, to rap music specifically. If hes fussy in the car, all I have to do is tune the radio to rap, and hes a happy camper. Like father, like son I guess :)

~Is wearing 2T clothes and we are starting to buy 3T for summer. I mean, hes going to be in young men's by kindergarten at this pace! ;)

~Thinks hes a vegetarian. Mostly hates all meat except smoked sausage. Loves his fruits though. Hes on the fence about his veggies.

~Says a bazillion words, but only about 15 we understand. Daddy is his favorite. Momma ranks about 14 :)

We love him with all of our hearts...probably more. He is the best part of our day.

As far as I go, I have lost 14.8 lbs so far...still have 60 or so more to go. I hope it keeps falling off but I know I will stall for a bit, it has happened before. Working out 4 days a week on my Wii Active 2 game...which I need to write about...its Ah-Maz-ing! Its like having your own trainer! Anyway, I am fitting in clothes I havent fit into since before Kman was even a thought! Woo hoo! Only 5 more months until vacation!

Take care! :)

New Year, New Momma

Hey all! I am making some pretty big changes this year to myself. My monster is over a year now, and its time this momma decided to take herself back. Last year, I made all kinds of excuses not to diet and take care of myself...Keyser is breastfeeding, mommy guilt, I'm tired, etc. This year, I decided to cut the crap and really do something! I am going to have all kinds of mommy guilt if I didnt get my weight in check and leave Keyser without a momma! So a light switch went off, I woke up, and feel like a brand new woman!

This blog with still have ramblings of mommyhood, but it is going to slightly veer into my weight loss journey direction. Since January 1st, I have given up soda...completely. Starting January 10th, I decided to take a huge step. I am living a very "clean" food lifestyle. This means lean meats, veggies, water (tons and tons) and nuts. No more processed junk, and more importantly very low carb and sugar intake. I have to do this, or else. I have a strong family history of diabetes, and you can see my new way of eating as a diabetic diet. Its going to work, because it has to. I want to be there to see my grandkids grow up, and I have all the willpower to do so. I want my patients in my future nursing career to take me seriously...because I am not sure they would take the "fat nurse" serious when giving them medical advice. I also want to make my husband do double takes when I walk in the room. He loves me to pieces regardless, I just want to be one hot mama!

So progress so far? Since January 10th, 11 days, I have lost 12.4 lbs. My goal is 3 lbs per week. I still have 53 lbs to lose for my first goal (hopefully by June!), and an additional 30 to lose by next fall.

I know I can do this...I have to for this little man. I love him too much not to!
