What a lovely sprinkling of pixie dust You should so apply for that part-time role! I totally would if there was a Disney store anywhere me! You're VERY lucky to have a Disney outlet so close although it could prove to be dangerous

Love your Mickey t-shirts - can't believe they're your first ones! I can see a bling trend happening with all your recent shopping

It really was.
I may do just that, we'll have to see if I can fit it in with family life. The store is just far enough away to not be too big of a danger for me.

I'm a bling girl, have been even before I lost the weight. I haven't worn much with bling in a while. I haven't splurged....sorry, splashed out much when it comes to the clothes I've gotten for myself while I'm transitioning. It feels good to buy things I love again and not just things to get by with.

Finally caught up here!

I'm so glad the stuff with Mackie and school worked out. Last I heard from you about that was that you might have to move the trip. WAHOO for an understanding principal and that she's excited for you too!

Love both the dresses you linked to! Macy's sometimes has some incredible sales, so keep watch! I have bought $200 dresses there for less than $20!

Your new Mickey shirts and tank tops are cute too. I'm so glad to see you've started to treat yourself with some new clothing, it will be so much fun to wear it all on the trip! I remember after my big weight loss a few years ago doing the same thing and being in awe of what I could wear. Now, I need to get rid of the 10 that has crept back on.

Nice Mickey shirts!

When you finally become a CM, can you hook me up with some discounts?

WTG making that family so happy!

Now STOP going to church or you will end up spending all your money in the Disney store.

At worst Mackenzie will have to make up the hours she's missed. I'm not worried about it. In fact she won't get to go on the OR trip that John and I are going on (just for a couple of days-for John's great uncle's 90 birthday party). As you know she missed two more days of school this last week due to the norovirus, poor baby. She woke me up in the middle of the night with her being sick most of the rest of the night, poor,baby girl. I hate it when my kiddos get sick.

Love both the dresses you linked to! Macy's sometimes has some incredible sales, so keep watch! I have bought $200 dresses there for less than $20!

Good to know! I'll be keeping my eye out for it, I'm certainly not paying full price for it. Waaaay too pricey for a dress, at least for me. Now if it were for some really fancy, dancy thing Mr. Incredible and I were going to then that would be different, but this will be for tea and to have on hand for other occasions. Come to think of it, it would make a great Easter dress for Church too. Hmmmmm.
This losing the weight thing has opened me up to wearing things I would have never even thought of in the past. When you are as overweight as I was, wearing dresses made you feel like a giant tent, it wasn't gonna happen.

Thank you!! It's certainly opened me up to all the fun I've been missing out on for the last 21 years or better. I'm having a lot of fun with this. It's a bit nerve wracking buying things you hope you'll fit into for a trip in three months!! I'm pretty safe in saying I'll lose at the very least another 15 lb., hopefully the full 25, but I'm trying to be realistic. If I don't make the big goal by the trip I'll still work on it once I'm back. I'm not quiting until I get where I want to be.

Thank you. Hopefully I'll find some more cute one's between now and the trip. Although to be honest.... I'm not much on wearing character shirts. They have to be pretty cute and special to even think about wearing them. We'll see.

Sure! If I can!

WTG making that family so happy!

More than anything I wanted the mom to be at ease about the trip. Between the wise CM lady and I, I think we helped her realize she could go on this trip and have peace of mind she would have a great time and not have to worry too much.

Now STOP going to church or you will end up spending all your money in the Disney store.
Yeaaaa, those are words to live by! Ummmm, I'm gonna tell God you said that.

God: Camille.....Why did you stop going to church?

Me: Weeeeeell......Tim made me do it!! Yea, that's it, it's Tim's fault!

First off, LOVE the shirts!

You have Mickey with bling. What's better than that, honestly?

And by the way.....yea for you on the eating healthy!! I probably would have started eating all kinds of junk to make me "feel better," back in the day.
So happy to hear you aren't.
Let me know what I can do for you while you heal, not sure what it could be, but let me know any way! Is there something here in Texas (that I could send to you) that would cheer you up?

Thank you for your kind words!!! I really appreciate it.

And I won't lie, I definitely ate some junk immediately following my surgery, but pretty shortly after I got back on diet. Being homebound has been great incentive for me to focus on myself and my physical health! I figure if I can lose the weight now, everyone will just think I look so fabulous when I finally re-emerge from the cocoon of my home. Never mind that I feel so much better getting closer to goal.

Hmm.

What could you send me from Texas? My goodness. I would not even know what to ask for!!! But the offer is lovely, and your kind words mean so much to me and put a smile on my face. And that's really the best gift you could ever give me.

I love love love your story SO much!!! This is so inspirational, you have no idea. My mom is over 60 and struggles so very hard to lose weight after having dealt with so many setbacks and surgeries. It's always been a dream of mine to go to DisneyWorld with her, but with her handicaps, it just seems really impossible that she would enjoy it the way she deserves to.

Once I get home from college for spring break, I will share this with her. Your story really touched me and even though I don't know you... through reading your story, I feel like I do. Congratulations on Disney with your daughter!! Keep the faith <3!!

Not much really. Hoping to find a few more.

You are more than welcome, I can't imagine how icky it is to be stuck at home not feeling your best. The best part is you getting better than you were before and looking amazing when you do it!! And you will!

Hmm.

What could you send me from Texas? My goodness. I would not even know what to ask for!!! But the offer is lovely, and your kind words mean so much to me and put a smile on my face. And that's really the best gift you could ever give me.
A smile on your face is a major bonus, especially knowing what you must be going through. I'll have to think of something.

Oooooh Thank you. You are so sweet to say this. This very thing is why I shared my story here, I knew someone would gain something from my story and hopefully take back their life. My mom too has been through many surgeries and has had many medical set backs so I totally understand what you are talking about. I don't think I'll ever get to go to Disney with her.

Once I get home from college for spring break, I will share this with her. Your story really touched me and even though I don't know you... through reading your story, I feel like I do. Congratulations on Disney with your daughter!! Keep the faith <3!!
Awww, this is so sweet. You must be about my son's age, he's 20 and is away at college too.
Bless your heart, I am keeping the faith and hoping to make it to my goals.

Oh! And.....
