St. George Island, Florida

In random order, may I present to you some pictures taken on our trip to St. George Island in Florida to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. Without further adieu, here they are!

Both sunrises and sunstets were beautiful on the island.

Charlie really enjoyed fishing; so did Grandpa. 

The quantity of butterflies on the island was immense. It was kind of weird. 

This was the neighbor's deck. 

There were so many pelicans! They are such graceful birds! 

The pink and blue sky with the purple coulds was stunning. 

This was the back of the roadside store we got oysters and seafood from. 

Needle-nose fish are just a few of the creatures we encountered. We got up close and personal with sting rays (Kurt got stung and one whole day of his was used up dealing with that darn "sting"), jelly fish, and all kinds of other sea creatures. 

This pompano made for a nice little treat for supper. 

The sky was really like this! It was surreal! 

Grandma enjoyed her little birthday celebration.

The shoreline was full of shells. Where we go to the beach in SC doesn't have many shells so this was a treat for us to get to rummage through lots of different types of seashells.

Seaoats create a barrier between the shore and the houses. The sea turtles nest here. 

I'm not fond of seagulls... 

 Seeing a sundog never gets old!

This is an old trestle bridge in Albany, GA. We stopped there on our way.

Does it get much more peaceful than this?

Lastly, no trip is complete without a flower shot!

If you've made it this far, I hope you've enjoyed the pics! They were some of my favorite from the trip. I only wish my children wouldn't run from me every time I have the camera out! I'd love to have more pictures of them!

It's No Secret

I'm overweight. Like, big time overweight. Like, more than 100 pounds overweight. I've been thin (6-8), and I've been this size (22-24). I've lost and gained at least a few hundred pounds in this lifetime. This size is no fun at all. Nothing is easy or fun about being this size. Things that are easy for normal weight people are hard for people of my size. I've tried about every diet known to mankind and I'm pretty sick of being this overweight. People might wonder how in the heck I've let myself go like this. I wish I could tell you all of the reasons why, but that would end up being a novel instead of a blog post!

I just got home from the beach and saw a picture of myself and was literally shocked, with my mouth wide open, about just how big I've really gotten. It's not just unhealthy, but it's unsightly. :(

Because of this, I've decided to try the 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge sponsored by Creative Bioscience. I will be using the 30 Day Diet for three months. There were several products for me to choose from including a raspberry ketone product and African mango product that I've heard a lot about but haven't yet tried.  The 30 Day Diet includes both of these ingredients and much more to promote weight loss. Creative Bioscience has an "A-" rating with the Better Business Bureau and that's very important to me!

I'll keep you updated on my progress once every few weeks. :)

This is even my good side! I can't bear to show you the front view! Hopefully that will change soon!


P.S. This post is somewhat humiliating to me. I'm counting on people not to make nasty comments because if you've ever been this overweight, you'll realize that the last thing is a comment about what you already know. So, thank you in advance!

How Many TImes?

Ugh! How many times have I said, "It's been so long since I've blogged!". Too many times! But, I have to say it again. Apparently I'm a consistent blogger: consistently inconsistent!

Here are a few shots I've taken the in the last few days.

Hopefully I'll see you back here in a few days, rather than a few months!
