Week 20 - WOW
Thursday, November 24, 2016
This has been a rough week mentally for me. I have been having feelings that I am getting too skinny. My wife assures me that I'm not and I know she is right. You see, I have been over 300 pounds most of my life since the age of 12. I am now WAY below that and it feels strange! I almost feel as if a part of me has died, as weird as that might sound. I look at myself in the mirror and can't help but wonder who that person is. I don't know him, I don't know where he came from and I don't know where the person I used to see has gone. I know it's a phase I have to go through, it's just a little difficult right now. I will see my psychiatrist in January, and I know he can help me get past this.
I couldn't believe what I saw on the scale this morning! I lost another 5.2 pounds this week! That's almost 11 pounds in two weeks! I haven't changed anything, I'm still eating lots of protein and veggies, drinking my protein shake every mornings and taking all my supplements. Maybe my body is just so happy to be so much healthier that it's decided it wants to get the rest of the excess off quickly. I am now just 50 pounds away from my goal weight! ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!
None of this would have been possible without the greatest surgical team of n the planet, my beautiful,caring, supportive wife or without the help of my Heavenly Father Jehovah!
