6 Years out

Jul 09, 2017

Well, 6 years out!  I was down to 189 and put on a few extra pounds over the past few years.  I am now sitting at 214.6 as of this morning.  Last week I was 217.6 and started a low carb high fat diet.  I really enjoy the way I'm eating and the new foods I have created on my own and or friends and family have given me.  I can't wait to finally get back down to where I was and even lower.  

Here is to a new year and new plan!

8/3/2011 Thinking back to the past 8 months

Aug 02, 2011

I was thinking back to the past 8 months of weight loss.  I was getting really upset that I haven't lost anything over the past 3 months but then I started reading others posts on the website and found out I'm not the only one that is feeling this way and having the same issue. So I thought I would take the time to write down all the things that I have accomplished over the past 8 months since surgery.

1. had my surgery
2. hit 209 lbs
3. Got into a size 18
4. went to 6flags and fit on all the coasters...
5. Hit 80 lbs lost

There are so many more then this but they are little ones inbetween.  These are just a few of my big goals.  Anyway, we all will go through these same feelings and just have to push through it.
