It's been a while...

Feb 28, 2008

Well, I seem to have taken some "time off" from this website - although, I had no idea it had been this long!  Shoot!!!  

Life has been really rough lately.  My boyfriend moved out, and is staying @ his dad's while he gets sober.  This has been really tough for me, and I'm afraid my body has taken the brunt (as usual) of the stress I've been feeling.  

He has an addiction to alcohol, and has for a long time.  The good news is that he is quitting now, but the bad news is that I miss him being home so much.  Plus, there are a lot of trust issues now that he's gone ...not trust issues in the way that I'm worried about him cheating on me, I'm having a hard time trusting he isn't drinking.  I also wonder if he is going to like living without me, and that worry is really taking a toll on me.  

But, I need to put things back into perspective.  I am doing no one any favors by eating myself into a stooper!!  

It feels nice to be back.  The differences in some of you since I was last on this site (10/07) is absolutely amazing!!!

A couple of weeks ago, Mary Lou told me the class for October was full.  I was so disappointed, but she ensured me if there were any cancellations - or if she was able to squeeze anyone else into the class - I was next on the list...
Well...I got a letter from her inviting me to the October class!  Yeah!  It just arrived yesterday!  The meeting is next Friday, the 19th!  Yes!!!  I am so excited!  
Some one must have cancelled....  Yippee for me!! 

A little disappointed....

So, a couple of weeks ago I got a hold of a gal in the Bariatric Dept. @ Kaiser - and she told me I would be getting a call soon to be asked to attend the October meeting.  

That was really exciting, as I felt  I was really getting the ball rolling!  

Well, being that it's the end of September and no phone calls from Kaiser, I started to wonder if I was going to be called??

As it just so happened, yesterday I got the number to Mary Lou's direct line, from one of the kind ladies on this site (thanks Karilynn  !!!!!).  I called her yesterday evening - and she informed me that the October class was full, and I wouldn't be asked to attend a meeting until November!  Bummer!!!  I guess I just missed it too!  Double bummer!!!  

I talked to her for a couple of minutes though, and told her I'm already taking the "Freedom from Diets" course, started excerising, and am close to losing almost 40lbs since my referral.  She of couse, told me to continue doing what I'm doing - and when I get to go to the class in November I should be "ahead of the game."  

So, we shall see....  Of course I will continue to "plug along..."

Looking forward to November now....!!!....

Hey Now!!!!

Okay, so after starting @ an unbelievable 398 (July 31st, 2007 last known highest weight), I'm down to 368 (09/07/07)!!!  I'm getting really excited about this!!!  

There's only one problem which is, my parents think if I'm able to lose this much weight so quickly - why do I need the surgery at all?  I understand where they're coming from, but I know better....  It just kinda sucks because I would LOVE to have their full support - but I don't.  

I'm still waiting to hear from Kaiser!!  I sent my packet in WEEKS ago!  I think I will call them this afternoon and see if I can get a hold of someone.  I need to know what's going on.


Not so great....

Well, this weekend was a little out of control....  

I ate really bad all weekend long!!!  I made very poor food choices all three days....    I don't know why I do that???  I know by now that I feel slugish, lathargic, and lazy when I eat those foods...???....  I guess I do it because it's more convenient and easier to eat CRAP than it is to prepare a healthy meal?  Hmmm....  It's one big circle, the more crap I eat - the lazier I am - therefore, the more I don't want to make anything healthy to eat because I feel like poop!!  Geeeeezzzzzee!!!

My weekly class @ Kaiser was cancelled for yesterday for the Holiday (Labor Day).  Since Mondays are my usual "weigh-in" day, I have to skip getting weighed this week.  We will see what next Monday has in store for me!  I have a feeling that if I DID weigh myself yesterday, I wouldn't bee too happy w/what I saw.  Hopefully by next week I will have gotten myself back on track and I will see another loss......  
Fingers crossed!!!

Woot - Woot!!!!

I am sooo flippin' excited!  

I weighed in @ my "Freedom from Diets" class last night, and was down an unbelieveable 7.5lbs!!!

That makes 22lbs lost so far!!!  Whoopie!! 

I realize that the weight won't always come off so quickly (I've lost 22lbs in 4 wks), but I am very thrilled nonetheless....!!!!....

Just thought I'd share!

Time to go update my BMI - I don't want to see a higher number on my profile than what is necessary!!!

Down 15!!!

Aug 23, 2007

I'm happy to say that I am down 15 from my heaviest weight (05/15/07).  I know 15 lbs isn't a whole lot to lose within 3 months, but I can honestly say I haven't been trying my hardest.  

I have been paying attention to what I eat mostly.  That has been a big help.  I've cut waaaaaaaaay back on eating out.  

The other day I sent out the 18 page questionnaire Kaiser had me fill out to get accepted into the Bariatric Program.  

I hope to hear back really soon!
