Today I am overweight ~ yesterday I was obese. What a feeling to say I am overweight! Who would have ever thought that.
I can now cross my legs like a proper lady. I now have arm pits. I lost a shoe size somewhere a long the line. The car seat now needs to be moved up ... A lot. I've inspired two other people to join the bariatric journey. One being my husband! I am now have a place in "one"derland. I can sit in my six year olds kids recliner~that one is pretty cool. My pelvis makes a weird sound on a wooden chair like my best friends did in grade school. I am about the same weight as I was in grade nine. I have eo wear tape around my wedding rings to keep them on. I now have veins in my hands and feet I can see. I still feel tired a bit and trying to work out my iron and b12 levels. Medication is a thing of the past! Insulin needles.... Bye bye!!
Hope you have a great day today!
