Its been 8 years since i gave Birth to my First born. I still remember that day like if it happen today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BAILEY

Well i am doing ok .Today and this weekend i don't know its been kinda of hard for me. I am missing my Dad alot . I don't know if its because of valentines or because he was never there to see my son born. I also think it has to do with my weight lost. IF he had taken care of his self better he would probably be here today. (though heart issues run in the corbello family ). I know he would be proud of me if he was alive with my weight lost choice. Some folks like to judge people who consider doing the Weight lost surgery ........ they say its the easy way out.........BUT ITS NOT. We struggle more now then when we were fat and barley moving.

I am doing well I had a very bad case of vomiting yesterday but i think it had to do with what i tried to eat. So yesterday i probably didn't even eat two bites all day .

But i am doing vitamins today, water and soup . I am loving the new me.

I am starting a contest. On March 20Th (the day i go to the doctor) if you can guess how much i weigh (doctors scale) you will get a 25.00 surprise in your mail.

SO be watching .

OK off to finish file cabinet cleaning (never knew it held that much stuff)

Thursday, February 12, 2009


That's the exact words i said this morning when i pulled out my mail from the ins company.

The hospital bill was 52925.00 YES YOU READ THAT right 52K YIKES
that didn't include the doctor's charge of 37k

so with all my prescreening stuff before surgery , and hospital , doctor

i am close to 95,000 for this surgery i had.

NOW before you think i am RI Ch and i can pay all that ..............NOT i only had to pay about 3,000 which is in payments for the new few months..........

WOW is still in my mouth lol.

So see sometimes makes me wonder why this world is starving when doctors, hospitals can charge for this crazy stuff like this.

OFF TO clean more house lol


Good Morning

Hi yall,

I am well and excited that Friday is just around the corner. Today Karley has her party at school and I have mine in my classroom. Bailey's has his tomorrow and he is excited that i get to go. Last few parties i had to miss because of the day it landed on . I think its very important to be with your child during these times and their events at school. Now days there are very few parents who are involved in their child's activities because of crazy reasons. I understand most parents have jobs they cant take off work but i think its important to show your kid you take the time for them for their school events. Bailey might be getting tested for GT(gifted and talented class) at the end of the year. I am still deciding if i want him to take this route. Gt class use to be known as a SMART KIDS CLASS but as it was explained to me yesterday ITS NOT. It's for children who need a boost of a challenge or a child who can do well in other areas beside (reading, math etc) . I have heard enough comments to make me sick from family and friends already . I don't know what i am going to do but i was shocked when three of the teachers said YES to him getting tested. They are with him every day so they know more then i do what he needs. This has nothing to do with him repeating first grade. He is still on a first grade level though he is repeating. He will be moving up to second grade no matter what he does this year. He will also be in his therapy class next year too and its really helping him alot.
Well that's enough on that just pray that we as a family and teachers make the right decisions when it comes closer to test him .

As far as weight i have lost another Pound (YIPPIE) so now i am total 41lbs lighter.

Well that's about it Have a great Thursday


Tuesday, February 10, 2009

IF i see one more holiday item i will

SCREAM................. Valentine's is so hard for me.

I am home today with karley who had 102 fever this morning but we got home and got meds down and you would never know she had fever arggg kids.

So i am spring cleaning i redid my stockpile stuff in the wash room , cleaned out the pantry .

Now in my room cleaning (GROSS LOL) i want to change it but living in this home is just about impossible .

I am just in a grumpy mood this week. I have a few things on my mind but sometimes it doesnt pay to express them nobody would understand.........and yes my wls has some what to do with it .

Well i am ok as for as the dieting and surgery stuff going. I still am never hungry i some times have to make my self eat. I get tired of eating the same things over.

Well thats about all off to write a friend and get the letter in the mail soon.

just me

NOt much to post. Just tired of choas etc. I just wish people would LISTEN to your concerns and not brush them off or make excusses. WHen you try to talk to someone about the issue ...... you wonder if they are even caring to listen the way they answer you back.. Guess i am not in the CLICK i am going to just stay to myself and hope for better things to come. . I am just in one of my moods i guess. Scale isnt moving ( its moving just not fast enough) , still having issues with foods and now i just dont want to eat i look at food and it just gags me. I pack my lunch i open it and i just get this sick feeling...............Gosh when will the mental thing ever stop .

Ok off to finish washing ....... think i am going to read some tonight and maybe it will put me in a better mood.........
