Before my surgery I was 215. I gained 6 pounds that night! Now granted, some of that was from the gas they pumped inn me that didn't totally go away for almost 2 weeks. But it's gone! And I am back on track! I am working my butt off again and running five miles in 65 minutes. Now that's not fantastic, and it is on an elliptical....but it's still....5 MILES!
And I am finding myself being cautious of what I'm eating. It's not perfect. But i'm being cautious enough, I've actually lost enough weight to put me down to 213! 213!!! I dont' even know the last time I was below 215! I remember in high school, I used to tell myself, and I think my mom as well, "I'm okay with my weight as long as I'm under 200." I have never been small. But honestly, I don't remember when I passed 200, but shortly after that came 215, and by the time I was 22, I was 230.
I have lost 17 pounds. That's amazing!! Anytime I try, I can't lose weight. And in less than four months I have lost 17 pounds. I'm seriously just so excited and thrilled that I have actually started losing weight. I'm not comparing myself to my sister. I'm comparing myself to me. This is my goal. I'm going to lose weight. I'm going to have spark streaks working out and I am going to beat them! No one else but me. It's been a lot of hard work, and there's so much more to come...but I am so ready for it!
