So this post will serve as my 6 week update, though i'm 2 days from 7 weeks! I haven't had much time to post due to work travel but i had some amazing NSV's that i had to share here!
1. I flew comfortably for the first time in 8 years! i was in a row with 2 men ( which usually presents a space issue) and fit in my seat without overflowing into the next person's!! it was AWESOME. I know i've only lost 30lbs and still have a way to go but i'm so happy with the differences i've already noticed in that regard.
2. We were in NY for my partner's birthday this past weekend and i was able to comfortably walk around the city and keep up with her.. it was GREAT! She even noticed that i wasn't wheezing or needing to take many breaks. I even had energy to tour the city during the day and go out at night.. something else i haven't done in years..
3. My clothes FIT! I work in a professional environment so i have a few suits and skirts/dresses i used to wear. But because of weight gain and flab i haven't been able to wear them. As i was packing for my NY trip i realized i could pack whichever suits/skirts i wanted! i not only fit them but actually liked the way i looked. I'm getting excited again about dressing for the office.
Those are the major wins over the last few weeks but the scale has also creeped down an additional 3lbs, so that's great too. It's crazy to me that i haven't been overly worried about the scale these last 2 weeks and i hope that continues too. I can't express enough how happy i am that I chose to have RNY but it's so true that everyday just gets better and better!
I feel that emotionally i struggled my first few weeks and wondered if i'd made the right decision but now that i'm used to my diet and feeling healthier I'm able to appreciate everything in my life so much more! I'm more excited for what's to come and looking for opportunities to hang with friends and family!!
ing my RNY!!!
