1-year Surgiversary

I haven’t really posted about this in the past year. Little bits, here and there.

But I wanted to post it here to always remember this special day.

Feb 14th — 1-year Surgiversary — Gastric Sleeve
Here are my numbers
Started journey August 2016
Lost 78 lbs on my own
Since Feb 14, 2017 — I’ve lost 82 lbs
Total since August 2016 — 160 lbs

More impressed with how I feel health wise… feeling pretty good. Both physically and mentally.

It’s been a life style change, there have been some hard times, but totally worth it.

Looking forward to seeing what’s next.

Happy New Year

Make it a GREAT year.

Happy Birthday 

Today was my birthday and I had a very nice day with family and friends. 

I had many nice posts and texts all day that made me smile. 

Here’s a picture of me. I wanted to post it here so I can see how far I’ve come in a year. 

I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next. 

Love to all my family and friends. The best is yet to come. 

Happy Heavenly Birthday Mom

I want to wish my mom, Lydia M. Garza, a Happy Birthday in Heaven. 

This is the same post that I gave been using for a couple of years on my mom’s birthday. But my feelings have not changed one bit. 

I miss her every single day. 

I know she is heaven with my brother, Joe enjoying this day together. I miss her so much. After five years, I think of her everyday. I actually smile and laugh when I think of her. But there are those times when I miss her so much, it brings tears to my eyes.

But I know she is in heaven with Joe and her family having a grand old time! Till we meet in heaven… I love you.

Roses in Heaven…

Happy 30th Birthday, Brad

I want to wish a Happy 30th Birthday to my nephew, Brad Keesler! I have loved him since the moment I knew of him. I am the luckiest person in the world to be his Aunt. 
Brad, I hope you have a great day and the BEST is yet to come. I ❤️ you!

Happy Birthday, Joe

Today would have been my little brother, Joe’s 49th birthday. 

He will be celebrating in heaven with my mom. It’s almost been three years since Joe died. 

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of Joe. The good, bad and the ugly. 

I can picture him in heaven, celebrating his birthday with a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. Eating a box of cereal. Downloading all the movies and TV shows he can. Eating something our mom made just for him. Listening to “Free Bird.” And drinking a Lemon-lime slush with extra fruit from Sonic. 

So, Happy Birthday, Joe. I misd you and I love you, as much as one can love a pain-in-the ass little brother. 

I’ll have a Lemon-lime slush with extra fruit from Sonic. 

Tell mom I love her and miss her too!
