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

New beginnings, emotional eating

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      9 comments

I had a little test for myself today. I had a particularly upsetting day at work- not work related but with 'family' members that are less than sensitive and really hurt my feelings. It goes back to feelings of not belonging that are deep r... Read more

New beginnings, it's the "ME" show!

I tend to like to wear black a lot. The last few years I've made myself wear brighter tops- even prints! Why is this hard? I remember being right out of college, walking around downtown Seattle, and with the crowds it helped me feel 'invisi... Read more

I didn't mean to delete the last blog I'd made. I suppose it's hard for me to be real honest here. When I wrote about my back injury and how I'd not likely walk any more- how my life had changed so much since I fell down our stairs Decembe... Read more

Day 29: Warmth. I went with my DIL for a spa pedicure today- my first one. (I've had a pedicure but just once). It is sometimes hard for me to let people touch my legs/feet...I am so self conscious about how fat they are and I have lymphede... Read more
