6 Years Later..you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll live healthy.
Jun 20, 2009Yep, it's been 6 years. I ask myself "has it really been that long". And then I answer myself out loud which is kinda weird, lol, that "yes", it has been 6 years. It's been a long winding road, but it has gotten a lot less bumpy along the way. I've lost weight, I've gained weight, I've lost the same weight again, and lost new weight. I have learned so much about my body and my spirit. I went to my doctor about a month ago for blood work. It's been a couple years (I know, my bad) since I'd been there because the last time I was there I was already putting weight back on and I was so embarrassed about going back for everyone to see how I'd failed. Well, the doctor and nurses, and my nutritionist, everyone, was so excited that I had actually lost weight since I had been there last. My doctor said it was SO uncommon for someone to lose weight after surgery, gain some back, fall off the wagon and then get back on and not only lose the weight I had regained but to keep losing to get to my goal. He said it just doesn't happen that way. That it was a testament to how hard I am working at it and how badly I want it. I'll try to post again in a few months to keep my progress up to date. Toodles!!
