finally ate it again. Granted it was only 3-4 ounces but had zero issues. Still makes me pause before ordering, actually I think I prefer chicken now more than anything else.
like taking compliments for people who say: “wow you look great”.
my initial thought response lately: “thanks for noticing how fat I was before”. The whole thing makes me uncomfortable. Is it just me?
Today I weighed in at 246, that’s 100 pounds down from my max weight.
I love my decision to have this surgery. The only thing I would change is when I had it done. I went a number of years ago but just wasn’t ready mentally for it, plus I was listening to others when I should of been listening to myself.
I am and will always be a food addict. This surgery has given me such a better relationship with and better understanding of food; those insights make this so much easier. I know what I can and can’t eat, what my trigger foods are (things I want to eat endless amounts of), and how to best plan my day because we (WLS people) need to make choices about what we eat every meal of every day.
Also, that puts me 6 pounds ( ok, lets call it 10 to be safe) away from one of my ultimate goals. Lets go!
i needed to buy some new clothes, nothing was fitting again. I tempted fate and grabbed from the non Big-And-Tall section. Everything fit, and fit perfectly. I stood there a just started to cry. For almost all of my adult life I’ve never been able to shop “off-the-shelf” and when the realization hit that I never have to shop only at certain stores or pay more for the larger sizes, I broke down. Life is good.
