6 months today since my life changed
Mar 01, 2011I can't believe that it has been 6 months since my surgery, I have lost 95 pounds since the day of surgery (who would have thought that was possible). Sometimes I look at myself or do something that I couldn't do 6 months ago and I'm so amazed. I've never been this happy in my life. I feel like I'm living life for the first time instead of just existing. I've gone from a size 26/28 all over to a 18 top and 20 bottom, I sometimes look at my clothes and can't believe that I can fit into them. I love to walk and exercise now and that is something i never really liked before, lol.
To say that this has been an easy 6 months would be a total and complete untruth..........this has been one of the hardest things that I've ever done in my life but i would do it again in a heart beat. It has been an adjustment for me, I still can't drink plain water or eat ice but I'm too cold most of the time to really miss eating ice lol. Oh yes and i do miss my insulation, I'm freezing all the time. I now dress in layers everyday because I'm so cold. There are days when i get discouraged or I feel like I can't make it but then I look at how far I've already come and I can't wait to see where I'll be in another 6 months. I also need to give a big THANK YOU to my sisters who also had surgery ( 1 is a year out and the other is almost 7 months out) for all of their love and support. I really wouldn't have been able to make it without them. We are in this together and I will always be thankful that we decided to take the journey together.
