Here I am

Jul 06, 2009

So here I am - 5 weeks out today.  It seems like it took so long for the surgery to get here, and now time is flying right by after the fact.  I'm still losing a little slower than I would like, but I'm losing so that's good.  I'm down about 13 lbs. since the day of surgery.  I am starting to see some differences in my body and have my before pics and one month pics to post.  So my clothes have been driving me crazy!  I got rid of almost all my bigger clothes so I don't have much to wear and my shorts are getting too big.  So I went to Lane Bryant and just didn't want to spend $30 on shorts I'd only wear for a month or so.  I ended up going to Wal-Mart and picked up a pair of 16s and 14s just in case.  I put on the 16s and they were quite big, I figured the 14s would be too tight...  But they were actually comfortable/loose!  I didn't push it and try 12s because I probably would have fainted on the spot if they  So I bought the 14s and a size L shirt - size L - not 2X, 1X, XL.  I was amazed.  I do think that they've changed the sizes in the last 10 to 20 years when I was last in a 14 though.  Now I'm at about 177 according to my scale at home and I used to be around 150/160ish for a 14 back in the day.  I think I'll go to Kohl's later and try on some clothes to see if it was a fluke or not!

Other than that I've been incredibly moody.  Yesterday I just kept crying over everything and nothing, it was terrible.  Other days I've just been a roaring bitch.  It's no fun for my family and friends, that's for sure.  I hope to get that under control soon before they lock me away and throw away the key.

Hope everyone is doing well!
