Picture Post and some Ramblings

Okay friends...I found a starting picture.  It's not the best but here we go.

 This first one was taken mid December when I weighed 153 lbs.

These were all taken this morning weighing in at 144.4 lbs! 
I thought I would add a picture of what my full outfit was for the day!  Lol!  Not like it is anything special, as I have 2 little ones that spit up all over me all day long.  Yes I have a total of 3 shirts on.  BUT I am in Canada and it is -12 today.  So I am always putting on and taking off layers of clothes.

And here is my tattoo I got last week.  It's an M done as an open heart with Maddie's toe prints on top.  We did an ink imprint of her foot right before we took her to the vet.  I had to, it was crushing me that we weren't bringing her home to be buried.  And it was going to cost us $300 + to have her cremated on her own.  JD really didn't want that as he felt it would've been harder to get over losing her with her ashes in the house.  And I agreed at the time...but I do regret it...

 I'm trying to get myself on to a schedule with blogging.  I would love to start doing Friday Favorites, where you share some of your favorite things.  And I am going to try to do a weekly update with picture on the lifestyle change and it's progress.  Plus I have some posts I need to do on the girls.  And I swear there are pictures of them coming soon.  They are just too dang cute I tell you.  And thank god for them really.  Even though January was horrible (mainly because of them) I wouldn't have made it through if I hadn't had to keep it together for them.  I've also been a terrible commenter (for like ever) as I am always reading on my phone.  Well I am making a commitment to start leaving comments on at least 5 blogs that I read.  I appreciate you all sharing your thoughts with us and I want you to know it!
The girls are finally both napping, so I think I will cut this short today.  But I will leave you with one more picture of my sweet Mad Doggie.  I miss her so.  And I love looking at pictures of her.  I just wish I could snuggle her.

Much Love!

I love how much you love your dog. Beautiful.

I'm a long time lurker and I just wanted to say I'm so so so sorry about Maddie. When our first dog together died 2 years ago this month I was a miserable crying basket case. Our new little one is the light of my life. But I remember that pain like it was yesterday, and I'm just so sorry. She was beautiful.

I think you look great! But understand the desire to always improve for self-image and happiness with self. Beautiful tattoo and tribute to your Maddie. Hoping the ache will ease over time.
