About to head off to Sunny San Diego!

And mom still doesn't know!  I am so proud of myself for being able to keep this secret from her.  I have talked to dad several times and he seems excited about it too.  He is really excited that mom doesn't know.  I leave on Sunday and will be back on Monday a week later.  My dad is only off work on Sundays so if I am to spend any time with him I have to stay that extra Sunday.  I am really excited.  I know that this trip is going to be emotionally draining, but I think it will be an integral part of the healing process for all of us.

I hope that I can get my mom out of the house and walking and such.  She really needs the air, to meet people and I will go insane if I don't get my exercise.  I am still on a downward trek and am 1 pound away from a new decade.  I will be so excited to see that one.  I was putting some stuff away the other day and came across some of my medical records that I had when I got my insurance approval.  I officially weigh less than when I had my gall bladder surgery in 2001!  I was a skinny mini then.  That started my upward trek.  A 10 year odyssey!    I am so glad to be there.  I still want to lose about 15 more pounds.  I will get there, it just will take time...  Maybe the Spring Challenge will get me going! I need some motivation!
