Hoje é o dia dele! Um ano a mais pra ele / um ano a mais pra mim.
Sou muito grata por poder fazer parte de cada ano. Sou muito grata por presenciar as primeiras palavras, os primeiros passos, por tirar gargalhadas bem dadas, por ter gargalhadas roubadas. Sou mais grata ainda por ver o quanto cresceu, o quanto é esperto e o quanto é recheado de amor. 💛
So, I ran into this weight issue dilemma but first let me explain. I was done with my associate's degree/requirements to transfer to UCF in December. I didn't put in for graduation application because I didn't plan to walk in cap and gown until today after talking to my advisor. I didn't know that I still had to do the application to officially graduate until today. In the past 10 +yrs my life has had so many twist and turns and I felt silly at 37 finally walking the stage for only my associate's. Well I realise that it isn't just "my associate's". I worked extremely hard to maintain a very high GPA so that I wouldn't have any trouble getting accepted into whatever nursing school I choose and I deserve to walk down the isle. I also owe it to my children to see me graduate from college. This isn't the end of my education but the closure to a long battle towards my dreams and purpose. Ok so the dilemma is that now I have to do the application by January 26th for graduation in May and I have to pick my weight now😱. I have no clue what I will be in May but I know it will be Onederland and that is scary in itself. This is the first time in my life that I will be putting under 200 for my weight! Thanks for reading all this 😍. My dream of being a nurse was a huge part of me starting this wl journey. I don't want to be that overweight nurse that can't run for an emergency or who has to tell a person about their obesity related health issues and I am over weight etc. I believe in leading by example. That being said, my education is part of my journey. I still have one class left before I can actually apply for the nursing program but I have to pay out of pocket and plan to take it/microbiology in August. Dreams do come true if you never stop believing and working towards them even with troubles.

Soy persona de risa fácil... ¡y lloro también!"
