One Year Anniversary Post Surgery

Sep 01, 2010

Its hard to believe that a year has past already since my GBS and I am truly blessed.  As of today I am 236 and is in best shape I have ever been in- ever...I remember when I first started this journey...I thought I would never get here and after months of determination and patience I am able to sit here and type my post surgery anniversary testimony.  I have to admit, I have had a lot of good days and a lot of bed emotional days after surgery.  I have been dealing with a lot of emotional issues head on that I used to bury away with food and facing it head on has been a big challenge....No one said it was going to be easy before or after surgery...I still have my cravings, mentally I still have these eating habits that I am trying to get away from...I am staying focus to working out (maybe a little to much)  and it has become apart of my everyday life....I can now fly up flights of stairs without being out of breath..I can sit down and have room in a normal chair, I can get on a plane and use the seatbelt without the extender, I can cross my legs, I canwrap a normal size towel around my body, clothes are falling off of me and not doing the opposite...I haven't yet tried going to Victoria Secret, but will soon...I have more energy than ever, do a lot more smiling and walking with my head held high..I actually have a waist..all I can say is YAHHHHH!!!!!!
I am still trying to get used to all the compliments coming from people that haven't seen me in a long time ...Yesterday, while I was at the grocery store, the cashier lady stopped and said " OH my goodness, what are you doing?" I looked at her all confused and said " what do you mean?"  She was like, " you look great! you have lost a lot weight!"  I find myself giggling and smiling like a school girl and said, " thanks, I am doing a lot of working  out"  She smiled and say,  " Well keep up the good work!!"  It feels good!!!  I wouldn't change a thing with this experience because it has shown me just how strong of a person that I am
