Nov 21, 2010It's been awhile since I have posted anything here.
I am now down almost 150 pounds since my surgery. It's been a long and bumpy road. A lot of my slow weight loss has been due to personal issues. It's hard to lose weight when someone is telling you that you don't look good and keeps trying to fatten you up.
Well I have finally gotten out that dysfunctional relationship. I think now my life will start to move forward in the right direction both for myself and my son.
I need to start to exercise more regularly. I haven't been able to. I just haven't gotten as much extra time on my hands as I would like. I do try to park farther away and walk more often. I take the stairs all the time instead of the elevator.
My son is now 5 pushing 6 and has joined hockey. He is loving it. I love that finally he is in a sport and is being active.
I do find now that I have hit the sweet spot so to speak that I don't have as many options for food that I can eat. So it has been kind of boring do eat. Takes me longer to get done my food and harder for me to fit in all my water in take. I am trying though so that's a good thing.
I haven't decided where I want my weight loss journey to end, if it's another 60 pounds or 40. I am now in a regular size 14 and some items a 12. I still see myself in the mirror a size 24. I am not sure when my brain will ever catch up with the weight that I have lost.
I think of this site often and I tell everyone to come check it out. I haven't forgotten the friends that I have made here. I am so happy that the site still exists.
Once I am finally done and at my goal weight for a least a year I am going to try to pursue plastic surgery. I have so much skin hanging out and I just feel so trapped. I think once I finally get rid of this I will be the whole person I want to be.
