15 Months Out

July 17, 2009

I have been awful about updating my blog. However, I am now 15 months out. This journey has been amazing and it continues to be a learning experience. I'm learning who I am without all of the layers of fat to protect me. I am learning how to deal with getting attention from various people regarding the weight loss as well as from men. It still makes me a bit uncomfortable, but I am embracing this change and learning to love the new me.

My workouts are now more consistent. I must admit I wasn't very good at sticking to a routine. I now see that it is very important and I'm focusing on that. My protein intake has gotten better, but this is something that I continue to work on daily. Also, taking my supplements is something that I am working on daily to stay with a routine.

There have been bumps in the road, but I am not giving up. I do get cravings when I'm going through hormonal issues and I just want to eat twizzlers, but I am even working on finding a better alternative. The bottom line is, I am not perfect. However, I know that this RNY is a gift from God and I don't want to take it lightly and regain all of the weight that I lost.

My focus is changing my entire lifestyle. It is a work in progress. My next goal is to be in onederland. Exercise will help me to get there.

Many Blessings to all of you on this journey.
