I'm a little late with my 3 month update. The last month has been pretty busy for me. I've had some emotional issues with letting someone go out of my life that was long overdue. Surprisingly it wasn't a trigger to to eat like it has been in the past. But I found myself really needing distractions. I started making positive changes in my life- I took an internship that will hopefully get me a job one day in my field and give me some good experience. I also finally did something that was long over due- I got my permit and am taking driving lessons! I know at 24 not many people don't know how to drive lol, but living in NYC I never felt the need to- but now I want to learn to broaden my options in life. Just another thing I'm doing for ME.
As far as weight loss- I'm down to 302lbs so down 14lbs this month! Some times I think my weight loss has been slow but when I look at it like that, 14lbs in a month is A LOT. I'm SO close to the 200's I can taste it! I really wanted it for my 3 month surgiversay but that's okay! I'm down 57 from surgery and 77lbs all together from my heaviest (heaviest known anyway. I always stress that because I know I was definitly over 380 at my heaviest but it was never documented) I can't believe how close I am to being 100lbs down! The most I has ever lost in my life was 68lbs on my own when I was 18. The fact that I surpassed that now makes me SO happy! I'm just about 30lbs until I get to my lowest weight ever- 270lbs. When I see 269 on the scale, I swear I won't know what to do with myself! So excited to get there! As for sizes, I was in a 26/28 at 380+ and now I'm around a 22, though some smaller things fit me, and some larger also, depends on the cut, brand etc. But I'm going with a 22 lol.
I'm really happy with where I am! I know I'm still pretty big by most people's standards but I feel like I'm the hottest thing in the world most days LOL. I feel so good, I have a ton of energy and I can just LIVE now. Even if I never lost another pound I would be THRILLED to be where I am! So grateful to be able to live in the world again as a functioning member of society. This surgery was always about being able to live a life, not for vanity. I know I was pretty before, now I just feel amazing all over AND I'm able to shop for cuter clothes to show myself off! :D Hoping to drop 10 pounds this month- fingers crossed!
Here's a picture I dug up from last January- I was over 380lbs there- and the after is today at 302! :)
