I hit 199.8!
Sep 25, 2009I'm so excited. I'm not at my 4 month yet (although close) and I am in the 190's! It's so amazing! I truly am very happy with my decision to have the WLS. Last night I was actually dancing with my boys in the living room and didn't get tired! What a great feeling! I have upped my exercise and am doing the rail trail. Wed I did 3 miles! Although it took about an hour and I only have 1/2 for lunch, so I had to scale back. So, I do shorter, but more often. I love the rail trail, it has markers, so I know how far I have gone. I started by just doing small laps around the building, but now am doing full fledged walks. What a freeing feeling to not be trapped by my body! I still want sweet occasionally and will let myself have little bits, but it's not a daily thing, and definitely not much. At first I really missed the food. I now can eat most thing, but not much. I can even have pizza as long as it's thin crust and I get ham, or something with protein on top.
On a different note, my husband and I have been less cranky at each other. I think my overall attitude has changed. I never thought it was bad before, but I demanded allot from him (like housecleaning) because I couldn't do much of it for a long time without being tired. I am now doing allot more of it, just because I want to, and I think it's taking allot of the stress off us. I am a neat freak and want my house immaculate, although I've come to grips with my children being 2 and 4 and that not being realistic. Oh well. Another big change is me actually doing more with the kids. I venture out of the house with them by myself more. Part of it is because there older, but part is because they don't wear me down as quick. I should mention my husband works 5 ten hour days and 1/2 day on Sat, so he's not around much anyways. That means when he is here, he picks up the slack from me being tired. I couldn't imagine if both of us were big!
OK, that's it for now. I had a chance to spill my guts and also be happy! I plan on keep getting smaller and want to stay that way! What a better life!
