Losing Fairly Steadily
Oct 11, 2011Its been about a month since I checked in. I am down 45.6lbs as of today. 15. 4 was pre-op so have lost 30.2 since the surgery 7+ weeks ago. I think I am on track now. The biggest issue I was having was that I was trying to go back to my old eating habits of fast food. I justified it by lack of time. REALLY, NOT. I have more time now that I am an empty nester than I ever have had. It was just habit and LAZY. I hate to cook and thought I would be fine just eating out. Not working well. I have an ulcer now and it is getting treated with pepsid and cavarafe (Sp). I have to take the pepsid every morning and the other stuff 30 minutes before I eat. Not an issue in the morning but you have to take it 2 hours after you last ate. Talk about having my life controlled by food. I thought it was before.
Anyway, I have been cooking things and freezing them in portion sizes. I only have 3 different things right now, but I will be doing more cooking this weekend. It is fall break for Alicia and she is also having her wisdom teeth out also on Thursday, so I will be at home.
Really stressed at work. Trying to learn how to deal with stress and not eat. Also dealing with the hormones of fast weight loss and I think that is not helping. Trying to just relax and listen to my music as I do my work. Our new person is here to help me, but needs to be trained. I just need to be patient until he can really do something, I think it will get better as time goes by. Charles leave in December and I will take over his cases and move into that slot 20 hours a week. Really looking forward to that. I will be glad when I do not have to work with the supervisor I am dealing with temporarily now. Who Hoo. Anyway I just need to sit back and relax and get sleep, eat well, exercise and take my vitamins and drink water.
I wanted to get on the dating websites but am not really ready. I need to lose at least 50 more lbs before that happens. I told myself after the holidays. I also had to bow out of the church musical as I am just too tired right now and have to focus on the weight loss and exercise. I guess I am learning to take care of myself more.
Money is tight but that is not new, just working on some solutions to that. It will happen, just not as soon as I would have hoped...agh. Need to get some of the medical bills paid and then will be in a much better place.
Doing well with the weight loss and just dealing with normal issues. So I think I am doing well.
