I Have Missed You

Hopefully, I am back and this is not a false restart. I have missed my friends and I have been drowning in numbers. Here's a news flash! I admire people that can work with numbers all day long every day. I'll admit that seven days a week, day after day, has been an overdose for Nana Trish. All I have to do is tweak a few things and I should be all the way done.

My life has felt as though something was truly missing. It was my "blogging life". I kept wondering what everyone was doing, but I knew if I jumped in I would not be able to do what I had to do. Thank you guys for being patient with me.

My friend, Maree, at At Home, has inspired me to change my eating habits. She has lost a lot of weight and I kept reading about great suggestions for snacks, eating out, and hanging in there. I have a lot more to lose, but so far 18lbs. and counting. This is from a thick chick that has been on every diet known to man. It's all about the choices and thank the Lord I am loving feeling my clothes get big on me. I need to go to Seattle in June and I really want to have a significant amount gone by then. I want to be healthier and have more energy. This is a long process and I didn't get big all in one day. It will take a while and I just have to make the right choices.

I must not delay. I must hop on over to visit you guys. I have had withdrawals. I thank you for all the sweet comments in my absence and I can't wait to see what YOU are doing!

Hi Nana! Welcome back! We have missed you too.

18 pounds?! WOW!! Share the secret girlfriend. I would like to lose abt. 20 lbs give or take. :o)

Crunching numbers was my thing. I did it day after day, week after week, year after year. Loved it but am glad to be retired. ♥ ∞

Yea, your back! Please post more on your dietary changes. Eighteen pounds is a lot of weight to lose. Well done. I need to be doing the same. I know how. I just can't find the will. But I will...find it.

Love the new header -- what a view!

18 pounds is quite an accomplishment, Trish! Good for you. I'm always saying I need to lose weight and you're an inspiration --are you doing weight watchers or another special diet?

Nice hearing from you! You have been missed. Great job on the weight loss. I need to go get some inspiration from Maree.

We are missing Avery too, how is your little princess doing?

Maggie May said...

All that number work! You are a marvel being able to cope with it. I know I couldn't do it.

18lbs weight loss...... that is good. I must get back to a serious diet. The GI diet has always been effective for me, but you need to keep at it. Too much chocolate in the house from Christmas.

So glad you are back on line....... I missed you too!

Congrats...18#! Good job! Glad you're back blogging.

MuseSwings said...

I see you have a comment from the mysterious Fengye too. Can you say "Spam I Am?"

Anyway - I have missed you A LOT!
18 lbs is wonderful! And here I am offering you orange pie.

Numbers is not my thing - I daydream too much and would make disasterous mistakes. Hugs to you Trish!
