Well, I haven't been the best about blogging so I am trying to redeem myself in case I don't get to blog over the holidays that are RAPIDLY approaching!
So, as of today, I have lost 83 lbs! I am very excited because every pound is a struggle to me. I panic at every 10 lb marker and think I can't possibly lose anymore. I continue to watch my sugar and try to get my protein and calories in for the day.
I went to a Southern Living at Home party yesterday and the consultant had her own RNY in January 2006. She has lost over 120lbs. I saw her and said, "OMG-you are ME someday!" She was very supportive and her surgeon was in my surgeon's practice so I know she had someone great. I was able to give her a Starbucks coffee tip since we can't do high sugar or caffeine anymore. I recommended the Sugar Free, FatFree Decaf Cinnamon Dolce Latte and the Decaf, Sugar Free Caramel Latte. She was so excited and I was glad to share my "Starbucks wisdom" with her! :)
Thus, I plow on to my goal which is closer than I realized. This is definitely a way of life for me and not just another "let's try this for a while" diet. It is my new life and each day is another step to a healthier me for myself but mostly for my family and friends-whose support I continue to lean on for the less positive days!
