So pissed....

Once again I won't be spending Thanksgiving with my family and being this close it really sucks big time. But again, my mother was behind it.

Last year (our first year back in 6 years) I had asked if Thanksgiving dinner could be moved up or down a couple of hours so that me, Ty, and the kids could see some of the his family too. But my mom wouldn't even ask my other aunts if that was possible. It wasn't that I was asking to do this every year, just our first year back. I asked why and she said that they were the older people and they got to make the decisions. So we stayed home here in Charleston.

So tonight I get a call from my mother saying that Thanksgiving has been moved from 3 to 1. I was like okay, fine. Then I asked why? She told me that my cousin is doing something with her dad that evening, something like cooking dinner around 5 or 6. Then it hits me, that this is pure BS....that they wouldn't move Thanksgiving for me but they will for my cousin. I got pissed and pointed it out to her that it wasn't fair or right. She said that this was my aunt's decision. I get that, but when I asked my mom wouldn't even discuss it with anyone else....just flat out told me no. And that this was my problem. Fine, if its my problem, then I don't need to be there, no do I want to be around people who will do something for one person in the family but not someone else...which has been the story with my mom my whole life. 

I was really looking forward to going home to see family, enjoy Thanksgiving, celebrate my 10th Anniversary with my husband....but I guess I will figure something else out. At least when we were in Albuquerque, I had the excuse of being too far I just don't want to be around my mother. I wonder when she will see how differently she treats people in her family. 

Silver lining to this: killed my appetite and now won't over eat at dinner. Funny how emotions and stress will mess with your eating habits. 


  1. call your sister and see if you guys can do something together or just spend it with the hubbies family or just order Thanksgiving from publix and start your own tradition with your kids that will be passed along the older they get and when they have families...everything happens for reason!

  2. I think we are going to go back to what we have done in the past, spend it with our Air Force family....

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…

So, through out this whole process of me dropping this weight my one want, my one hope would be that my legs would slim down. When I was at my highest weight I carried my weight pretty much all over my body, though my stomach was very big, but so were my legs, arms, and face. And as I have dropped the weight I have lost the weight in my face, arms and stomach, but I feel that my legs are still as big as ever. When trying on pants I don't necessarily worry so much as if they will fit in the waist or being too long since I'm short I know I will always run into problems there, lol. No, my worry is if the pants are going to fit over my calves and thighs. My wish is to be able to wear calf length or even knee high boots this fall and with the size of my legs that wish isn't going to be coming true any time soon. Plus I've noticed that I'm either going to need to stick with floor length or above the knee dresses as anything that falls in between make my legs look stumpy …
