About Me


Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    What I Am Listening To

    Taking It Back
    Sorry I have been missing for awhile. Work has kept me really busy. I have policy revisions that are due and I am trying frantically to get them fininshed today. Add that to two additional grants that I have to write and a grant revision due next week and I am one busy girl.
     
    If you have been around for awhile you may know that I struggle with my weight. Always have and probably always will. Five years ago next week I had gastric bypass surgery. I lost 150 pounds before I had my children. It was the hardest and best decision I have ever made for myself. Unfortunately, I have fallen back into all the old habits that made me 380+ pounds in the first place. And I have decided that it has to stop.
     
    I didn't go through everything that I went through to end up where I was 5 years ago. I haven't gained back all the weight but I have put on 50 pounds from where I was three or so years ago. Those old problems are coming back. I have no energy, my back hurts, my knee hurts when I walk up and down stairs and/or hills. Not to mention I hate the way I look. There is no one to blame but myself, and I am the only one that can do something about it.
     
    So, starting this past Monday I joined Weight Watchers. I contemplated joining other groups such as LA Weight Loss or Jenny Craig, but I think that this will be the best bet for me. I definately can't do it on my own, I need someone or something to hold me accountable. Although losing weight fast appeals to me for obvious reasons, I need something that will retrain this brain of mine and teach me once and for all how to lose it and keep it off.
     
    So, if I am a bit of a grouch for the next few weeks forgive me ok? I am wanting a Snickers and a Mountain Dew!

    I joined WW on Saturday. I lost 70 pounds doing their program about 13 years ago. Unfortunately I found all of them and they all brought a friend. I know the program works..I know I need the people support and the accountability of a weekly weigh in.

    That is great that you are doing that!

    I was under the impression that you didn't gain that much weight back on gastric bypass surgery - I knew you could gain some, but I thought it was a small amount...

    Anyhow - i'm joining weight watchers too!!!! Tuesday is my first meeting :)
