Thursday, February 04, 2016      14 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!

Wednesday, January 06, 2016      11 comments

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

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

New beginnings, some positives

Sunday, August 16, 2015      16 comments

Day 12 of my recovery and things are....better. I am not feeling as sore except for a couple little spots. I am still not sleeping well and my new tummy has not been happy trying new things, but I have had some great positives I needed to share... Read more

New beginnings, anger and loss

Tuesday, August 11, 2015      20 comments

I am not promising I'll win fans with this- but from the beginning I've cleared my thoughts by blogging so I am going to do that with no expectations this will make sense to anyone but me. Feel free to skip this one- it ain't pretty. 8/4/20... Read more

New beginnings, mind game

Tuesday, July 28, 2015      8 comments

I'm learning a lot of this is about what's in my head. I know it ends up being about what's in my mouth- but it starts in my head. I think I mi... Read more

This is how I've been feeling for the last hour: And all because I'm comparing myself to others in their journey- and thinking mine is lacking ... Read more
