Wow! I just realized i am down 100 pounds.

Apr 10, 2009

I got on the scale this morning and it told me I was 176.4 pounds.  I didn't believe it...I got on it again and it told me the same thing.  So I went back an hour later and I weighed 178.0 pounds - I actually believe that.  I went to update my ticker and then I realized i am now down 100 pounds since my highest weight of 278.0.  Wow...who would have thought I could do that??   This is so unbelievalbe and it feels so good.  I am only 33 pounds away from my goal weight of 145.  I think I can actually get there.  Next week will be my 6 month surgiversary.  I am down 78 pounds since my pre op diet.  And today I am going to go out and buy myself a pair of 16 jeans!

I did find out last week that I am going to have to have both of my knees replaced but we will put that off as long as we can.  Just goes to show all the damage I did to myself over the years with all of that weight on me.   I started getting these injections into my knee which should give me some cushion and hopefully give me some relief.  the Dr seemed to feel that I would get additional relief by losing more weight.  So it is even more important to get to my personal goal of 145 or even less if I can.  Knowing I am 6 mo out and only have 33 pounds to go, I feel I can do it. 

I can definitely eat more than a 1/2 cup and probably 1 cup at a time.  My weight loss is slow on most weeks but then I always have a good loss on the week of my period.  Weird.

I have to admit that I have tried some sugars and haven't had any trouble with them.
Don't know why I felt the need to do that, but I did.  I did so good for the longest time and I am pretty disappointed with myself.
