Four Month Surgiversary!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Wow!!!! Where did four months go?!? At almost exactly this time, four months ago today I was being wheeled into a surgical suite for a surgery that would change my life!

Since the surgery the weight loss has been slow, but I've adopted the motto of one day at a time, one foot in front of the other. For the first time I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Although the weight loss has been slow there have been so many other added benefits - the back and knee pain are pretty much gone, I'm breathing easier, sleeping better (although I'd never been diagnosed with any sleeping conditions, I'm beginning to wonder now), have more energy than I've had in I don't know how many years and actually feel good about myself! This all leads to being able to keep going if I've got a down day because I know better days are ahead.

I'm now down four sizes in tops and 3 sizes in bottoms and am back to sizes that I haven't seen since High School about 20 years ago. It's actually fun to go shopping again - even at the thrift stores!

Now onto another day of this journey. Have a great day!
