80 Days.. Can You Really Believe It????


I have been eating HEALTHY for eighty (80) days now. I am so happy for myself. I am so pleased with myself and I am so overjoyed with myself.

My former provider told me I would never be able to do it. A harsh cronie told me the same thing. I am down 88 pounds and 30 of them since surgery date of June 27, 2012!!!!

Last night my supper was a small yam baked in the microwave with a teensy amount of brown sugar sprinkled on top with a teensy amount of margarine. I was FULL after eating the cooked yam.

Tonight, for three hours straight, I stood with plastic gloves on my hands and helped serve a mammoth amount of fruit punch, coffee and water to all these great people who showed up to support the MATT PEED BENEFIT. I stood watching countless of folks go through the serving line of BBQ pork loin sandwiches, wavy chips and a slop of vodka spiked baked beans.

I was told I could eat something and I did take two bites out of a pork loin sandwich. And I drank my fair share of non-spiked Jim Jones kool-aid too.

I went home happy.

Happy that I helped out and volunteered my Saturday night to a wonderful and worthy cause. And that I didn’t need to graze on the smorgasbord of treats like the old Amy would have done. And I walked to and from the event. And I’m one of those people who is still scared of the dark. And the bogeyman. It was very very very dark out when I walked home too.

I am slowly but surely coming out of my hermit ways. Baby steps….
And come on folks… IT HAS BEEN 80 DAYS since my actual journey has begun!!!!

My 8-year quest of being BANDED finally happened on June 27, 2012!!! While it will be nice to shed some pounds, my number one goal is to get HEALTHY ... And to get off ALL my diabetic meds and not have to rely on my CPAP at night and for naps. A few years back I made a decision to only surround myself with positive people and I have never looked back. At times I may be snarky perhaps a little wonky and I will apologize right now if I offend anyone as I blog about my life as I know it. Peace & love to all of my wonderful supporters.
