I've forgotten how to have a goal
Monday, May 16, 2016      7 comments

I think I've forgotten how to have a goal. My goals were always weight related- losing related. I wanted to lose weight for so long and it was always the goal, and since I never could make progress, it became nothing. And then it was to liv... Read more
9 month progress photos
Tuesday, May 03, 2016      10 comments

I haven't felt much like blogging lately. I'm just sort of- doing life I suppose. I had this surgery 9 months ago so that I could potentially have back surgery to fix my spine, which is very damaged from years of being 350-400+ pounds and f... Read more
Reality Check
Wednesday, March 16, 2016      14 comments

It's been a rough couple months. I'm still having some issues with feeling...good. Which is something I have kind of stopped expecting but it still catches me by surprise when it goes on too long. It's still better compared to last year. I'... Read more
7 month progress update
Sunday, March 06, 2016      10 comments

I'm not sure a lot changed since last month, but I have seen some NSv progress that is worth sharing. 1. I went shopping in a brick store a week ago. 7 months ago I was in a 5 x everything. I purchased new stuff and if it's cotton pants ... Read more
Six Month Progress Photos
Thursday, February 04, 2016      16 comments

Wanted to quickly post photos of my the day before surgery- at 3 months out and at 6 months out (now). Sometimes when I'm discouraged it helps me to see there is progress. And I've moved. so the doorway is different. Loving my tiny house! ... Read more
Not the easy way
Sunday, January 31, 2016      17 comments

Despite what I used to think- or others might think- getting surgery for weight loss is NOT the 'easy way'. For one thing- it's like being forced into detox with an addiction- your emotional crutches all gone- I went into this with no real ... Read more
New beginning: New Year!

I wanted to share a moment of bliss I had today. (This is long- sorry) Sunday was my month 5 surgiversary. I didn't meet my goal of -100 on that day, but I have this week. I still have a long way to go though, and it's easy to feel like the effo... Read more
New beginnings: through my eyes
Wednesday, December 09, 2015      16 comments

I never see myself the way I am. I tend to see what I think I've always seen- someone who is overweight and, therefore, not attractive. I've had moments when I could 'see' someone different, but it's hard. Back when I joined SP in 2009 I wa... Read more
A new beginning: 4 month update

I'll be 4 months out from surgery on Friday, 12/4. It's been kind of a crazy, wild month! More then ever this month I've struggled with the los... Read more
New Beginnings: 3 month surgiversary
Wednesday, November 04, 2015      9 comments

It's been 3 months since I had what was probably life-saving surgery. When the Dr. opened me up I was diseased all over- he almost didn't do the surgery because of it. But he did- and gave me a chance at a life I would have never had a chance to... Read more
New Beginnings: October update
Monday, October 26, 2015      10 comments

It's hard to believe October is almost over. I don't feel like I've even had an October. Nothing exciting to report really. I am continuing to have issues eating food which my surgeon tells me is my damaged and diseased liver- not my stomac... Read more
New beginnings, through the looking glass
Thursday, October 01, 2015      10 comments

I'm almost 2 months post-surgery. I'm struggling a little with where I fit into this new life- and it shows. This morning I decided it's kind of like feeling like Alice felt- that I've fallen into a place I don't really recognize because no... Read more
New beginnings: ups and downs
Sunday, September 20, 2015      11 comments

I don't feel I have much to post but it's been awhile since an update so here goes. My roux-en-y was on August 4th. I lost the first two weeks after then stalled for a couple weeks, which I was not happy about. I finally got over myself and... Read more
New beginnings, getting real
Thursday, September 03, 2015      14 comments

Despite my best efforts to try and control the world- I have not been successful. I had researched weight loss surgery when I knew I needed mine. I knew what to expect from it. I knew some people lost quickly and some not so much. I knew ev... Read more
New beginnings- re-learning myself
Thursday, August 27, 2015      9 comments

I'm three weeks out from surgery and I'm certainly learning a lot about myself. Post-surgery I am never hungry. Most of the time I'd as soon skip eating as it just doesn't interest me at all. But I know my body needs the nutrients, so I eat... Read more
