lifestyle change

Me and my EssieKateBabyCakes.... Anne Pearce won't sit still long enough for a photo... This is the fountain down by our beautiful bay. I go to walk here everyday...
Me...walking with my babies.... happy.... happy at last.


I don't do diets..... I DO them for a week, and then I'm back to stuffing myself with cupcakes... I always have the excuse of my heart and dysautonomia if I'm tired and lazy... 2 weeks ago my dr. changed a medication... He changed ONE LITTLE medication, and it changed my life! I have had more energy over the last 2 weeks than I have had IN YEARS.... I'm exercising at least 5 days a week and just being more conscious of what I'm putting in my body. I'm not denying myself anything. If I did I would fall right off the healthy wagon. I am so thankful to have some of my spark back..... I felt like I had lost me. I had, but now I'm back!!!!!Everyday I go do something. It used to be that I could only muster up the energy to go places once a week or so. Not anymore! Now I load those babies up and just go.... Go to Hobby Lobby.... Go to Target.... Go for a stroll.... Go get a Fairhope Float (more about this miraculous goody in a later post). I've taken pride in my appearance again. I had been so down on myself that I didn't think I deserved anything..... You would be amazed how much better life is when you feel cute......This short hair I thought I hated??? Now I love it...... I will probably have hair this short for a long time... In general, my life is good again... even better than it was before. I prayed that God will help me, and He did through my general dr..... He listened to me and HEARD me..... Andrew wants to send the man flowers ;) I just can't wait to see him again and give him a big old hug..... People, Loulou's back.

I am SO happy for you. I haven't had your past health problems but I have watched Dmitry go through his...I had a stint two or three years ago where I lost all my energy and drive. I went to doctor after doctor and had test after test FINALLY a doctor listened to me and offered me a fix. I remember how much power was given back to me just by having someone listen and hear what I was saying.

I Love that your are giving yourself the care you deserve, I have always thought you were beautiful but it's what you feel that matters...

I am trying to find my ME again. I don't feel like I deserve to look nice but I am working on it too.

Keep it up!
