And we're off...wait not so much on February 16, 2011 6:21 am
This week has been interesting, I was on my cycle, which I always gain 5 lbs during, and went to my 3 month follow-up, which was 2 weeks early, not sure why! So, because of my stupid period they had me at 234, which is not right, but oh well. Dr. Acosta still said I am doing great! I weighed this morning, well kids, I am at 224lbs! From my highest weight that is 50 lbs down! 45 down from surgery:) I am thrilled, thrilled, thrilled!
I haven't been going to roller derby, I am sad, but my muscles aren't recovering, I have done EVERYTHING, more protein, bananas, bengay, hot baths, stretching, and anything else I have heard to do, but i could hardly walk for nearly 5 days. I have decided I need to do this like I do anything else, ease into it. I am going to get some outdoor wheels for my skates and start skating outside, also will be doing exercises to build my leg muscles. At practice I was super irritated, there were girls who were much bigger than I am, that were able to do everything just fine, I was having problems just getting from the floor to my feet! Someone told me it is harder when you are tall, I am not gigantic, 5'7.5" but compared to the girls here I am monstrous! Guess it's back to the gym for me;) All in all, I am dissapointed...blah.
Last week we also had the flu, well I did, then the kids got it. Not the stomach flu thank God, but the chills, fever, sleeping for 20 hours straight kind of flu. I don't even want to imagine how the stomach flu would effect us RNY'ers. Thank you all for the constant support, you all amaze me!

YAY, I joined roller derby last night! I tried to in CO, but life got in the way, not this time baby, I am going to do everything I can to do this up right! I am going to get pads today or tomorrow, already have skates, which I have been wearing in the kitchen, yes I am lame. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get off the floor in skates though, I am just not that agile yet. My first practice is tomorrow, and I have a feeling I will be hurting a lot. I have flat feet, and so my feet ache after awhile on skates. Maybe I need to invest in some insoles.
It is so amazing how different I am on the inside, I am loving myself, and making sure I am doing things that make me happy. I am thrilled with the change, and so thankful! I can tell I think things through a lot more now, which sometimes leaves me with worry, but I suppose at least I am FEELING. I want to let you all know, I am thankful for you! OH is being a crab though, sometimes when I go to your pages, it closes Internet Explorer:( I am trying to be as active as possible and be a support to you all, like you are to me!
