...and I'm down 92 lbs. Wh00t!!!
So, I haven't been around much. I've been busy living and enjoying the new me. Volunteering, socializing, just being out & about. Living life. And not worrying too much about my surgery, my body, etc. Is that weird?
...it kinda is, isn't it. I mean, so much of my pre-surgery life was aboout my size. I am not ignoring my size, my surgery, taking care of myself or any of that. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't feel DAMN good for the focus to be off my weight and on who I am.
I am not, and was never just my size. My weight.
Ok, so since we're being honest - I'm also getting a lot of attention. People who knew me are stopping in their tracks. "You lost a LOT of weight". "OMG - you look so different". And some attention from the fellas...lol. But even in all that, it feels good to for my size to be an aside.
Ok, and in post-surgery land:
- eating is a process and is trial and error. Generally, carbs don't agree with me, fruit does so I keep it handy always. I eat all the time, just small portions, anything in small doses. Mayo, sugar, fats, and fried are still very much not my friends anymore, so I spend a lot of time with fruit, veggies, Thai, Chinese - my new friends.
- weight loss: has slowed down dramatically, so I started couch to 5 program. So far, my body doesn't hate it
That's it! I'm off to cross a few goals that I've achieved off my list
