Camp Olympia...

It's that time again!

My kids go to Camp Olympia in Trinity, Texas. Creyton has been going for 5 years and this will be Philip's 3rd year! Every summer, Term 3, rain or shine, 3 glorious weeks on Lake Livingston. We LOVE this place. It couldn't be more beautiful, more organized, or more fun for the kids!

This year they are going to Term 1. It's only 2 weeks long, but their regular term interferes with HIGH SCHOOL football practice! Yup, my first born will be in High School this year. I can hardly believe it!

Camp is about 5 hours from us. Those of you who aren't from Texas are probably thinking that's insane, but seriously, it's not even half the state away.

It's all very ceremonial and traditional. The counselors greet you at the gate whoopin' and hollerin' (more Texas talk for yelling and clapping), one of them actually hops in the car to direct you to your campers cluster. It's a very exciting time, even for me.

Our FAM {big puffy hearts} Camp O!

A new Milestone!

I am finally 60 pounds down. Can you believe it? 60 pounds seems like REAL weight loss to me. I have lost so many 50's in my life, but 60? Now that's LEGIT! I am so happy to be on this journey! I want to share it with everyone who has ever been in the bondage of fatness!

Come one..come all!

I'll tell you ALL the gory details, I'll loan you books, I'll create your fake exercise logs for the insurance company, I'll make you a spreadsheet of your weight loss progress, I'll buy you aloe infused socks for your hospital stay, I'll let you feel my port....heck, I'll drive you to your visits!


It's a medical miracle for those of us who suffer from the DISEASE of obesity!

Okay, my rant is done. Peace out.

Former Fatty,


Worth Repeating

I ran across this video again. I'm sure you have all seen it, but it brings validity to our common goal and will maybe rally us in again. Maybe it will refocus our thoughts on working together as a team for the greater good. I thought it was worth repeating...
