Finally out of the 200's!

Sep 30, 2009

Yep!  That is absolutely correct!  I officially weigh 199.5 lbs!  I had no idea how amazing under 200 would feel.  I haven't weighted under 200 since I was 18 years old.  Today I felt so confident and happy over my weight loss.  I still have a little ways to go, but it doesn't seem overwhelming anymore.  At my highest weight it felt like I would never get where I wanted to be.  Now that I only have 39.5 lbs to go, it totally feels like I can hit it.  It is so encouraging.  I am so much more mobile now and can do things that I couldn't do before.  Man it's wonderful!  This surgery has given me the tool I needed to get my weight under control.  I am so thankful to God for helping me through the first 6 1/2 months.  There is so much more to the surgery than just the physical aspects of it.  There are a lot of mental aspects you have to get under control.  Some of my problems with food was my choices.  We eat out a lot and I would always choose the unhealthy items.  Mostly fried foods and starchy fried foods.  My diet was so unhealthy!  Thinking back on how much fried yucky stuff I ate really amazes me.

My 6 month follow up was rescheduled until Oct. 12th.  This time of the month for me at work is crazy so I called and rescheduled, which worked out great because when I told them what I needed to do they were relieved...apparently this works out better for them too.  :)

Well for now that's it. 

God bless!!!
