12-9-15 Marked Five Years
Dec 14, 2015
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BEEN OVER FIVE YEARS NOW!! Time flies :).
Well, it's been a "minute" since I've written a blog or posted a picture. I doubt anyone will actually read this, but, I'll give a little background and stats on me. I'm 5'3" and my highest known weight was 236 pounds. On the date of my surgery, 12-9-10, I was about 229 pounds. The lowest weight I got to was 116 pounds; that didn't last very long. My lowest weight that I maintained for any length of time was 119 pounds. My body seems to like 125 pounds, because that is what it keeps going back to, and that's where I'm currently at. Well, today I was a little less, but like anyone, I fluctuate.
Here's what's been going on with me. In 2012, I lost my sister to obesity-related issues. I was absolutely devastated :(. I miss her every single day! In spring of 2014, my husband, kiddos, fur babies (dogs), and I moved across the country. In October 2014, after dealing with some random shoulder injury for a while, I had surgery. I had to have a rotator cuff repair, which has been a pain to recover from. At the beginning of 2015, I made the decision to further my education. I had actually been mulling it over (procrastinating) for years. I finally took the plunge. I am now pursuing my BS in Sports and Health Sciences. It's been interesting trying to strike a balance between home life, regular life, and full-time (and then some) school. Actually, it's been REALLY stressful! I know it'll be worth it in the end, even though right now I keep asking myself, "What did you get yourself into?!" I have to keep my eyes on the prize! Plus, I have little eyes watching me :).
I'll be posting a few pictures from this past year, to show a visual on progress/maintenance.
