then and now

March 2009 till July 2013
I think I need a new look.
The "pouty" one just doesn't apply any more!

Still love LoCarb Hight Fat!
Who could get tired of bacon and steaks and
Butter and Cream? 
Mmmmmmm!

March 2009 to 2013

Back in 1972 Dr Atkins
Had it all figured out!
It only took the rest of us some 40 years to catch on!

meet susan

This is Susan W before and after!
She has lost 217 pounds!
Check out her blog here! (link)

Susan is an awesome Low Carb Cruise buddy -
Seen here in Belize, where we went Cave Tubing

She is a real and true friend!
See here in Honduras, where we Zip Lined...

All dressed up for Formal Night -
That's me in the Kilt, eh?

Susan did it all with Low Carb and excersize!
"Is that bacon on your plate, Susan?"
"Why yes - it is, Anne!"

Susan - you set a great example for the rest of us to follow!
I hope you are loving your 15 minutes of fame - 
You deserve it!
Here's to many happy more years!

everything I ever needed to know, I learned from blogging

Got these guys in a row -
MY - how they love to wander!

The other night, the power went out.
Texas Summer Storms... It happens!
I learned what to do from Kelly the Happy Texan (link)
Got everyone in the truck with the AC on full -
While the PowerCompany fixed the problem!

Fried/grilled/ Sauerkraut and Beef Weenies

Tons of Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken
And Chopped Brisket

Lamb Burger with Fancy Cheese

Double CheeseBurger 
With Double Bacon and Double Cheese

Lunch With Friends is always the Best

I got to be on a sign for work!
I'll take that as a good sign.
That, and one of my patients called me "Honey Boo Boo!" 
Which I will also take as a good sign.

happy forth!

Combat Medic School
(and the last skirt I owned)
[PS: it was a size 16 even then]

Nursing School
Tanks for the memories!

Deployed to the War
at Fort Hood

This is what I did in the Gulf War

And lots of this

Not so much of this

Maybe just a little of this - lol!
This is the first time I realized
- at the not-so-tender age of 28 -
That I can not eat or drink anything I want,
And still get by!

I thought I was heavy - at 136!
Hmmph

My fave Army pic of me!

Thanks for reading!
Some times a Nurse just has to "Bragg!"

Happy July 4th to you and yours!
