How many of us made that same resolution each year? To loose the weight? Either we don't need to make it this year or we know we will be doing it and wont use it or if we do make the resolution, we know we will do it this time?
I did not make it. I am pretty much at goal. Depends on which height I go by, either 5'5" or 6" I should be 138 to 144, well I am 141 as of this morning. I want a couple more pounds, but I think I am pretty much at the medical weight I should be. Who would have thought I would do this.
I know when we all first got to this site we were afraid of failure. It isn't to say we havent worked hard at this. I know some of you are still working on things. But we all are going to get there. Most of us are happier than we have ever been with how we feel and look.
I am here to say that if you stay with the basics, you will get to goal. I, for some reason, was able to stay with basics all the time. Except for a day here and there I got all my protein and water in and always took my vit. I can't say why I was able to do this, just something in me clicked the day of surgery I guess. I wish I could pass this secret on, all I can pass on is determination to be fit and thin for the first time in my life that I remember. I have a carb now and then, but it is the third choice in my meal. I don't eat sugar. I still believe I dump, not worth it to me. Even at Christmas I didn't have anything but SF desserts. I lost weight durring Christmas even. I know some are still struggling, I wish I could do more than pass on what I did. I eat very little at a meal, no more than I did at 3 months out.
Now I still have problems. I eat too fast or one bite too much or something that doesn't sit well with me, then I throw up. I can't drink milk. I dump on sugar. I am also worried about loosing too much. I will have to live with the loose skin I have, although it isn't as bad as it could have been. I hurt when I sit for any lenght of time, and that interferes with my work. It isn't a cake walk. But it is a walk, which I couldn't even do before.
These are my thoughts this day. I wish you all success this coming year. Where will we all be in a year? So many have gone away over this last year, will any of us be here in a year?
Well Happy New Year everyone, to the new yous.
