1 Year Yeah!
Nov 16, 2009Well I made it 1 year, and what a year it's been. I've lost 144 lbs (in total) 136 since surgery. A whole person!
I'm no longer in a size 28, but in a 14. I've been on a plane with no extender and on rollercoasters. I'm able to jump up the bleachers at the arenas rather then crawl up them. My life is wonderful.
I have so much confidence and self esteem. I'm still 30 lbs away from my goal, but I'm ok where I'm at today.
I'm definitly more social then I was before. My husband and I go out more and he and I have gotten closer. He doesn't say much about my weight loss. He says he's reserving judgment. He has always been a jealous person, and I know it's gotten worse, but he's hiding it well.
I'm looking forward to having plastic surgery sometime in the future. I want a tummy tuck, breast lift and aug, my arms, lower body lift and thighs. I've seen a surgeon and he said if I had the surgeries today, I'd be at my goal. Since I can't afford it right now, I continue working hard to get that last 30 lbs off.
I'm a little nervous. Next week we leave for Jamaica and I'm worried about being away from all my comfortable surroundings when it comes to my food. I know I'm going to do the best I can, but my GP advised me to stay way from salads which is a big part of my diet. I'm just afraid to come back up a few pounds. Scares the hell out of me.
This is me 3 days before my surgiversary at a Red Wing game.
All I can say is I really love living. I love getting up each day and trying something new. I'm really living for the very first time.
