Wow, I didn't realize it's been over 6 weeks since I last blogged!
It's been a crazy, crazy busy time since then. Lots has happened, but I'm too exhausted to write it all down right now.
I did post a new pic, from a wedding I was in on October 10th. I'm now 60 lbs down! Just 50 lbs from my doctors goal weight for me!!! I've given myself until my 2 year Surgiversary to reach my ultimate goal of 130 lbs lost. That would put me right around 170.
At the beginning of this journey I never, EVER thought in a million years I'd be more than halfway to my Doctor's goal. And the fact, that even on a 'bad' day, I'm still achieving it, makes me want to just burst into tears of joy.
Losing this weight has helped me be easier on myself, and realize that all good things take time. I didn't gain 130 lbs in a year, so why on earth, even with my Band, would I expect to lose it in a year? Now, if I did dieting and stuff I would, but since I've committed to no longer dieting, I'm going to take my time. This is an entire Lifestyle change. I'm 'unlearning' 20 years of horrible eating and exercising habits. And the fact that I've made THIS much progress in 9 months makes me overjoyed!
I've also re-committed myself to blogging weekly. And keeping in touch with my surgery buddies. They are a phenomenal support system!
I hope everyone is doing well.
