Still gaining. Back to basics
Friday, July 03, 2015
Since my surgeries have kept me down for 10 months now, and still keeping me down & blue, I have gained back 36 pounds. It sickens me because I worked so hard for that 60-pound loss.
But here's the reality, I will not live on salads every day of my life like I did the last time. I can't exercise for 2 hours every day like I did the last time. I also have a husband (common law, but he's mine) to cook for and he's not doing the salad thing with me. So I just have to eat healthy. My mother cooks with butter... Lots of it. I use olive oil instead.
I guess I'm just in a place where I've gained so much that I'm finding it hard to make plans to move ahead. I've bought larger clothes, dresses for the most part. I hate getting dressed, especially when I sit around all day in bed, getting up only when I have to go to the bathroom. I'm swelling up and I just know that when my custom-made wedding rings arrive, they won't fit. That's the big kick in the butt I need. Knowing my rings won't fit after MONTHS of waiting for them to be made.
But I have been getting out of the house... On the boat. I lay out while he fishes for sharks. Yummy dinners, they make!!
