Life now and then

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

well life sure has changed its hard for me to believe that that was really me. I am scared to death wondering when it will be over. I hear so many horror stories about gaining it all back. I still have all the bad habits of eating junk food. the truth is i can't hardly eat meat but I sure can polish off a bag of candy or cookies. So I still fight the same demons I always have i, its just for now I feel I am cheating him. I guess that's why I am back here because I know everyone here fights with the same demons and I will always need help cuz I cant do it alone. I need encouragement to eat healthy stay active and not to forget where I came from . It has been 2 years since my surgery I have lost 200 lbs. I feel great about it., though sometimes I have my pitty party about all the stuff I am missing out on that I can't eat like sandwiches i cant tolerate bread and it was my favorite..........but each morning I get dressed and have so much fun getting ready for the day wearing the clothes I've dreamed of ,fixing my hair putting on my makeup , deciding what jewelry I will wear and think this feels so much better than any sandwich I've ever ate! SO GET OVER IT .....Enjoy this is what it is about feeling good and being healthy and I am BLESSED....LIFE IS GOOD

    I just commented on your other blog from Jan. 14 (you know how sparkpeople posts the names of blog entries in the runner along the page edge). I had gastric bypass on 10/5/11.

    Congratulations on your weight loss and healthy lifestyle! Way to go! I'm trying to get myself to exercise more often, at the gym and also at home with my Wii. I want to buy a used wii fit board. my niece loaned me a just Dance 2 game also. Love it!

    I'm getting ready to head to bed but would love to share victories, encouragement or struggles about living after weight loss surgery.

    God bless you,
