Three Things You Didn't Know About Me - Blog Hop


This weeks theme:

Three Things You Didn't Know About Me!

I attended 13 schools and 2 colleges.

I was in the car with a 3 foot long cobra and watched it bite my Father on the leg and my little sister on the foot. (Because you asked lol My father was bit on his cowboy boot (which saved his life) The venom ate away at the varnish on his boot and missed his skin by a hair. My sister at the time was 18 months old. My mother had just taken her shoes off. The cobra slid between the seats and across my sisters lap and bit her right foot. She started turning blue. The doctors said she would not survive the night. Long story short the doctor wrote on the medical release "miracle". She had enough cobra venom in her to kill an adult male in 20 minutes. They are both alive and well.... (not the cobra. It was chased down by an entire group of people)

I spent 12 years overseas as a missionary kid. These years were so important to me. They have really shaped me into who I am today!

It sounds like you have had an amazing life. I am sure being a missionary kid for 12 years was very interesting. Isn't it great how all our adventures make us who we are :)

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
