I haven't posted much lately but have been lurking and reading and thought I would share. 

Six months ago I was really struggling.  I was having anxiety attacks at the though of food in general.  I was turning down and avoiding situations where

Another NSV of sorts - I was at the salon getting my hair cut last night and when I went to leave, I realized someone had inadvertently taken my new coat instead of theirs!  In the d

This weekend Mom decided she wanted to go to church - so we went.  I found that for the first time in YEARS I could actually kneel during mass!  I felt so normal :)

Hell isn't fire and brimstone. Hell is God showing you all the things in your life you missed because you were afraid to try.

Yeah.... It's happening.  Old habits are sneaking back in and they are destructive.  I'm sneaking food and hiding what I'm eating... 

 Weight loss tends to put you in the spot light, especially massive weight loss in a short period of time a

I have an appointment for my one year follow up with the surgeon and had my one year labs done last week.  Today the NUT called because two items were low.  Vitamin  D  and protein.  I track my food and know how much protein I get - at LEAST 60 and nor

This last weekend was our annual family reunion.  I missed last years because I had just gotten out of the hospital so I hadn't seen some of them for 2 years.  They were amazed and very complimentary but the best thing happened with my 11 yo niece who

When I was round, firm and fully packed like a kishka (polish sausage reference!) my dog would stand on my lap.  She's little... only 14 pounds of fluff.  Now that I'm not so firm and fully packed, when she stands on my lap she wobbles like a drunk sav

One year ago.... it seems like it went by in a flash!  Surgery was the best thing I have ever done for myself.  The amount of NSV's so out weigh the bad days in the beginning  :)

I'm a little bummed with myself because I missed my personal goal

I went to a bbq on Monday with family that I don't see as often as I would like to.  While I love and adore them, it helped reinforce the idea of becoming a hermit.  The questions about my weight loss (you really aren't planning on losing any more, are

Funny story--- I saw this bracelet online and loved the message. I wanted a reminder to myself of what I had accomplished so I bought it. I was telling mom about it a day later and she starts describing the bracelet to me. Seems mom also bought me the

So the women I went hiking with wanted to go bike riding on local trails.  I sorta stayed out of the conversation because in my still fat mind, I see myself as too fat to ride a bike (the visual image I have of me is having a hard time catching up to t

I survived my Smokey Mountain hiking trip! We walked about 18 miles in the 3-ish days (two days of 10 hour travel and two days of hiking) and here's what I learned: I can do anything I set my mind on. I didn't have to sit out and wait for the others be
