So this year has been a rough one for me. At the beggining of the year I had a heart procedure which was a total failure. I then found out that I was pregnant. I then miscarried the baby which is still affecting me to this day. Then we found out in Februaury that Matt was goign to Iraq. I believe all these events were a wake up call to me. It made me realize that my honey was going to hae to go off to war and I needed to do everything I could to get back in shape. When Matt left March 24, 2007 I weighed 230.5 lbs. After workign my butt off and changing my eating habits. This change led me to be 198.5 by teh time Matt returned July 1 2007. Since that time and the time when matt left again I got down to 181. Since he left in late november I have gotten down to 176 pounds. My goal for when he gets home FOR his R & R is to be down to 145 pounds. My main Goal for he gets home in 200- is to be somewhere between 125-130 pounds.
Also this year I have dealt with the fact that matt was injured in Iraq. While it was only a concussion it is very scary because it makes u reliaze how precious life is and how dangerous Iraq still is.
This year I also started taking a full course load of social work classes and let me tell u it was hard but in the end I pulled out 2 a and 1 b. I am sure once I graudate life will be a little bit easier. I hope
While iI ma glad to see 207 gone I will be even happier to see 2008 in the rearview windown becaus eit means I am closer to Matt comign home and us getting out of the army. I will celebrate that day.
