When LIFE gets in the way

May 21, 2015

So I am coming up on my 9 month surgiversary and (unofficially) I've lost 70+ pounds. Yay! But that doesn't mean there haven't been bumps along the way and that it wasn't hard. I still have the rest of my life to go! And that's the part I have to keep reminding myself. This tool will be with me for the rest of my life - I have the choice to use it or lose it. My goal weight is 130 pounds and I'm 25 pounds from that. The farther out from surgery I get the hard it gets to lose. But I have to admit I have to take blame for some of that because I let LIFE get the best of me. I haven't been able to really commit to the gym like I really want to because being a new home owner has its own demands. And when you're busy - you also dont make the best meal decisions. We almost have our home projects complete so I'm hoping I can finish up my 1 year surgiversary with a bang! Last night I bought my first ever size 9 Jr jeans as an adult. Crazy. They were a little tight but the 11's were too lose....so time to get it in gear and get those pants loose like the 11s!
