Yesterday in New Kensington, PA officer Brian Shaw (25) was shot and killed during a “routine” traffic stop that escalated to foot chase when officer Shaw was fatally shot.. tonight my family was out to dinner & to do some final food shopping for Thanksgiving. As we sat at dinner a man and woman sat a table away from us and I glanced over to see the man wearing a Police department shirt. At that point I noticed his firearm and badge. My heart sank.. thinking these people just lost a brother. Maybe not a blood brother but a blue line brother never the less. I sat and watch as the waited for their food and the female office got the 1st call/Text she took and never blinked.. they chatted about its contents then the male officer got the 2nd and the 3rd the female officer the 4th then finally their food was ready.. as they ate the male officer received a 5th the female a 6th. As an older couple left the stoped to thank them and wished them Happy thanksgiving. As another call came to the male officer yes that’s #7 he made come notes as another patron stopped and put money on the table said dinners on me.. and rushed out as the female officer said politely Thank you Sir you are so kind but we can’t except that as the male officer was still on the phone.. during all this I had gotten up to use the ladies room and I apologized for an additional intrusion of their meal but wanted to let them know how sorry I was for the loss of their brother and that my family prays for them all every day!! You see not once did the make a face at any of the calls not once did they scowl at the Interruptions each time the were gracious and kind each time they said thank you. as we were leaving they must have gotten one last call as the both jumped up and hurried out.. to the car an off they went.. back to protecting the community. it’s a life I can’t imagine. but it’s a life they picked because they love the job they do!! Even on days when the hurt may be overwhelming they still are out there doing their jobs. the ladies and gentlemen in blue always need prayers as well do their family at home. So anytime you can toss one up there I would appreciate it as I am Sure so would they💙💙💙
Thigh high boots and too much makeup make for a head turner when everyone at the Christmas party is used to seeing you dirty in steel toe boots and a ball cap. Please excuse the crap on the floor, I was in a super rush and Sunday is laundry day.
I haven't posted here since I was in the hospital but I'm 12 days post op today and doing great! I started full liquids earlier this week and I've met my protein and water goals every day. My incisions are doing really well. I go back to work on Monday and I'm excited because I hate not working. I also tried on a pair of leggings that used to be tight and they fit comfortably and are even a little lose in my thighs! #rny#rnycommunity#wls#wlscommunity#rnyjourney#wlsjourney#wlsjournal#gastricbypass#rouxeny#nsv

"I started this journey because I was tired of feeling tired. I was tired of being described as the "chunky one". I was tired of being afraid of doing active events with my friends. So I decided to make a change and little by little I started seeing results. I started feeling better, more energized, and happier.
I started sharing my journey to help others and assure them that there is hope.Natural weight-loss is hard but not impossible. I train for results. Yes I could have dropped more weight by now, but this is life style not a race. So I give my body time to adjust, make modifications as needed and I train for strength not a number on the scale. A number on the scale won't make love your body or even love you. Don't let the scale define you. Let you define you. Body positivity is appreciating you for what you are, how far you've come and how beautiful you feel."

I threw out all of my 18/20 pants! They just don't fit, looked like I was wearing someone elses clothes. Got a new pair of sz 16 jeans at Old Navy and two pairs of 16 jeans at Goodwill. Woot!
Yay!! My @gettespo arrived. Just took the bariatric pod the taste didn't bother me at all. It has an orange kinda taste. Way better than doing chewable vitamins 😁 let's hope my nutritionist says it's okay. Side note either way it's better than not taking any like my current situation 🙈
