100lbs Gone - Who Knew This Day Would Come True

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

March 2012 at 448lbs enough was enough! I had my consult with my surgeon and May 17, 2012 I was Sleeved! Fast forward 6 mths later and I have lost 100lbs. Now the real fun begins!

I have another 150lbs to lose to get to my goal of 250lbs. To some that may still be overweight but it's my goal. emoticon

At 6mths post-op I've noticed my bad habits are starting to sneak back in. The carbs are attacking me. I met with my nutritionist and she smacked me back in line.

When I sat down to write this blog my intentions were to cheer, jump and shout! (I'm still doing that of course!) However, I realize the seriousness of this second stage I'm entering. Don't get lazy keep it going! I no longer have the physical reminders that I had a Sleeve. My incisions are barely detectable, I don't get the slimies, I no longer vomit, I can eat whatever I want, I can drink whatever I want, I can eat more food. Now is the time to continue my protein drinks 80g a day, take my vitamins, exercise, drink my water, measure my food, stay away from food triggers, limit carbs in my life. Now is the time I make a definite lifestyle change forever.

Normalcy is the fuel that has always inspired me. My Sleeve is a tool! If abused it isn't useful at all.

I'M MARCHING FORWARD TO ANOTHER 6MTHS. MAYBE ANOTHER 100LBS! WOW! WOW!
6 MTHS AGO I WAS IN PAIN (READ MY OLD BLOGS). I WORE A SMILE ON MY FACE BUT SADLY WAS DYING INSIDE.

My journey is not over! It's just beginning!
