  • It's Time.

    12/21/2014 3:59:59 PM, by BLUEJAY1753

    Goal of the Day: Drink at least 100 fl oz of water today! 25 down. 75 to go. It's time. It's been time for awhile now. I need to start taking control of my life and letting this happen. I'm 25. I've been overweight my entire life. I'm over it. This is my time. I'm ready to do this for mysel... Read more

  • Where did I go????

    12/20/2014 7:44:47 PM, by SILLYGOOSE79

    Well the pain ended up being something that required surgery. I am about 4 weeks out (on Tuesday) & on day 2 without a boot. I was non weight bearing & then needed a boot. Well with the down in the dumps and loneliness and dependent feelings I lost control. I am praying for strength & g... Read more

  • Three Months Post-Op Gastric Sleeve

    12/20/2014 12:06:00 PM, by ANNABELLISABEL

    Happy Holidays! It is hard to believe it has already been 3 months since my gastric sleeve surgery. I am 47.8 pounds down since day of surgery (9/16/14) and now only 2.2 pounds away from getting to the 50 pounds down from surgery. I am pretty excited to get into the 230s so that I... Read more

  • Day 398 - 9 Pounds?!

    12/11/2014 12:57:52 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I am both confused and amazed at all of the great changes that are happening in my body. I'm beyond excited right now and it's a really great feeling! I got back on track last Sunday and I weighed roughly 170/171. I was at my highest weight and horribly depressed, miserable, and disgusted with ... Read more

  • 12 weeks Post-Op Gastric Sleeve!

    12/10/2014 10:00:25 AM, by ANNABELLISABEL

    These last 12 weeks have flown by. I am confident that this losing weight gig and I are going to have a long relationship until I meet another wonder, maintenance! Yesterday was official weigh in at home but I had to share, at my gym I weighed in and got to choose the "200" weight slide, I cannot re... Read more

  • Day 396 - Small Victories And A Concern

    12/9/2014 12:39:24 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Hey all! Today has been a day, to say the least. I've had a few ups and downs in my thoughts and emotions but overall I'm in a pretty good mood. I'll start with the good stuff. :) I have lost 3.8 pounds over the last 3 days from simply eating within my ranges, controlling my portions, and ... Read more

  • You Won't See it Until You See it

    12/8/2014 3:02:33 PM, by ANNABELLISABEL

    A year back I posted a blog about attending an Ugly Sweater Party, I was just under 300 pounds, pretty happy about it because being over 300 again scared the living daylights out of me. I felt confident since the scale was going in the direction I wanted. This year I am 51 pounds down from 300, I am... Read more

  • Day 392 - After All This Time, The First Step Is Still The Most Difficult

    12/5/2014 5:18:04 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I find it interesting that even thought I've been riding the SparkPeople train for over 5 years and I've been very successful at being thin, healthy, and active in the past, it never ceases to amaze me how difficult taking the first step is. Logically, I even know that once I get going and build mom... Read more

  • Day 391 - Well, Here I Am. Now To Move Forward.

    12/4/2014 12:34:33 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I weighed myself this morning to have an idea of what I'm working with. Admittedly, the number on the scale wasn't quite as high as I was expecting but it's certainly MUCH higher than it should be. I'm trying not to think about the physical stress my body is under right now carrying all the excess w... Read more

  • Day 390 - Who Am I?

    12/3/2014 2:27:58 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I've reached a point that I hadn't been to in a while. I'm so completely upset and angry with myself. I've let myself go completely and it brings me to tears. Why can't I be the girl who eats everything in sight and doesn't gain weight? Why can't I be the girl who personifies excellence in being act... Read more

  • 10 Weeks Post-Op Gastric Sleeve

    11/25/2014 9:20:21 AM, by ANNABELLISABEL

    Life has been very good to me these past 10 weeks. I am in a fitted size 18 pants, my shirts are all baggy, the next size down will be a non-plus size and I couldn't be more anxious for that. I fit comfortably in a 2x but can squeeze into a 1X. I have fit into a juniors stretch XL again, tight but ... Read more

  • Day 381 - I Can't Believe I Actually Went Rock Climbing!

    11/24/2014 11:02:14 AM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Hey y'all! I am so sore! My arms especially are particularly useless today but it feels great. My muscles haven't been this well used in a while. My friend had a groupon for indoor rock climbing at a local gym. It allowed us unlimited climbs for free. (Usually it costs about $10 for 3 climbs pl... Read more

  • Nine & A Half Weeks Post Op

    11/23/2014 9:14:37 AM, by ANNABELLISABEL

    Happy Thanksgiving Week! I know I have been slacking on posting blogs, I also have a youtube channel (annakaminski) that I haven't updated recently either. Work has been really demanding and then last week my Stepmom's dad passed unexpectedly. I drove to Pennsylvania last weekend (... Read more
