Five months out tomorrow.
Apr 09, 2009I gotta get with the program and start posting regularly.
Tomorrow I'll be 5 months out, and so far I'm down 82lbs.
My weight loss slowed down while we were away in the Dominican Republic, but still came back with a loss.
My mom has mentioned she's really considering the surgery. She's struggled with her weight for as long as I can remember too, but not sure if she's ready for this. She will really have to come to terms with the fact that this a life change and there is not cheating. If she can't give up the food, she can't have the surgery. That's where she's at right now, deciding if she can give it up or not.
I've had some wow moments too.
Last weekend, I bought a jacket that was a size 18. I nearly cried. I haven't worn anything size 18 since I was 18. Now mind you, I can't wear anything else 18, but hey, it's a start.
I am finally able to see my weight loss. After all the weight I've lost in the past (90 & 104) this is the first time I can actually see it on me. I think I'm starting to lose some of my fat head too.
Well, I hope to be back to post a bit more... and more often too.
