I haven't written anything in this blog lately. I'll be honest. I overheard some negative things being said about me. I was angry and hurt at first, but I remembered why I was writing this blog and what was important. I write this blog for me and I am what is important. Maybe that sounds selfish, but that is how I really feel. If people aren't interested and don't want to read this then they are free to skip it. I write this blog as a form of therapy for me I am changing in so many ways.
I am so proud of myself!!! Today I got on the scale and realized that I have passed the 50 lb. mark! I have lost 51 lbs. That is as much as my 7 year old weighs. It is amazing, I look at my daughter and see exactly how much weight I have lost. I have lost an entire small person. I wrote in the questionnaire, prior to my surgery, that I wanted to lose 50 lbs. by 6 months post-op. That is so unbelievable! I have surpassed my 6 month goal in only 6 weeks.
My clothes are baggy and I look like I have baggy butt in my jeans, but I am so proud of myself. I am discovering that I have some old shirts that I grew out of. I am shrinking back into them. I can't wait to get out my summer clothes and see what I cannot wear this year.
