I just made a HUGE realization!
As of this morning, I have lost exactly 200 pounds since I had my gastro-plasty surgery in 1997. So 21 years later, I have lost the amount of weight of a full grown man plus some.
I have lots more to go and from being sick, I am just hoping to keep this pound gone this week. I can work out when I’m not sick. I will get to where I want to be this year. I will just concentrate on one pound at a time.
You can see that my surgery is not performed anymore due to what they call better surgeries now. I am not sure I agree. If I had kept eating so much, I would have made my pouch huge and gained my weight back. I know plenty of people that did. I never did. I refuse to get that big ever again.
Today’s is women’s day and I’m proud to be a woman today and every day. I am a woman, a mom, a daughter, and a sister. I will get better and will not let this illness get me down or make me eat junk all day.
