AW post... Update on ME

on 4/12/11 5:59 am - Owings Mills, MD
I'm never around anymore. 

for that I am very very sorry.

Life is hectic.  LIFE has CHANGED a lot.

I've been around the same weight (150) since January and I am having the first stage of reconstructive surgery on June 23rd.  I will have a full tummy tuck and a breast lift.    After that is healed and I'm feeling ok I will also have my back thighs and buttocks done...  thankfully my arms and face are not so bad that I can't cope.  

Although lately I think of a face lift.... I feel so old.  I'm 51 but my boyfriend is only 37.

Yes that would be BOYFRIEND.  My husband and I are getting a divorce.  He moved out the beginning of March.   I just let him go.  I really did not feel I had much of a choice.  He knew about my BF and in the beginning he said FINE... then he could not deal any more and I did not want to give my friend up.... once  hubby moved out  my friend then emotionally moved in and within 6 weeks we were in a commited relationship. 

Currently it's long distance.  He lives 2 hours away in a suburb of Philly.  I'm up there pretty much every weekend... some weekends only one night every other weekend 3 nights...

He plans to move down here with me NEXT JUNE...

I've been slacking at the gym... gotta get back to that
Food ... eh  still doing protien shakes for breakfast and snacks as needed... eating way more carby things than I should.  Protein does not sit well on my pouch...

that's about it.... think of you guys... but with my focus on making an LDR with a younger man that was a part of the reason my marriage broke up I don't really have much to say here...
Ticker is from Day of Surgery.. weight goal is personal preference as I've MET my doctor's goal

Don't be sorry.... life happens!  It really sounds like you've gone through a lot of changes - and I wish you happiness with your new BF.  I hope your divorce goes as smoothly as those things can (mine was not friendly). 

Best wishes with your plastics!  June will be here before you know it!  I hear you on the face lift... I really want my thighs done... but keep thinking about some "filler" in my face.

Good luck -- pop in when you can,

Missed you Nessa and was wondering how you were doing. I'm so happy you are getting your plastics. I know how much you wanted them. Sounds like you've had a lot to sort out, but it is all working out for you and I'm glad you are happy. Hope the divorce goes smoothly and your BF sounds like he's a really great guy. Lucky to have you. Good luck with everything and keep in touch when you can!

All the best,

It's so good to see you back!  I've missed your posts and hearing about your progress.  You're doing great, holding steady at 150!!!  WOW, you've certainly been going through some serious life changes.  Wishing you all the best in your new life.  

BTW, you are NOT old and you certainly do NOT look 51!!!
