I'm back.....

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

So, I haven't blogged in ages, figured it was time. Finally back on the wagon after a horrible 2007. Crohn's flare-up, death in the family, car got smashed, doctors trying to rip 1/2 my colon out, breast cancer scare, you name it. Odd years just DON'T make me happy. Gotta try to break it in 2009! FAR, 2008 a little better. I was horrified to discover that my starting weight was in fact 7 pounds heavier than my highest estimate. I had thrown the scale away last year in disgust & was estimating that I had reached my previous high of 160. When I read my gastroenterologist's report for October 07 I was HORRIFIED to discover she was listing me as "a 43 year old woman who weighs 167 pounds". ACK ACK ACK! Good news is after 8 weeks back on Spark People I've now lost 10 pounds. 10 pounds is good! 25 or so more to go.....I'd settle for 20. I would have liked the 120's but I'll probably settle for seeing the 130's. IF I can get there. Can close my bras without an extender for the first time since last summer & can wear several things again that I'd given up. Feel much better, and feel like I LOOK much better though I don't know how noticeable it is to others. Guess it's all about self-image, huh??
