I'm still alive! Ok, Ok, I'm being dramatic, but I'm really getting sick of having this viral whatchamacallit. YUCK! I'm hoping to be fantabulous over the weekend. I've got a lot of stuff going on, maybe taking my mind off of feeling crappy will help me to have a good weekend and feel better too!
So, one success would be that I am feeling better than I did on Monday. That's gotta count for something, right?
Another success, I'm still in onederland. Nope, I haven't moved much at all, but it's still fun to think that I'm less than 200 lbs! Let's just hope that is what the doctor sees on Monday. Yep. I have my 6 month appointment with the surgeon on Monday. I don't know why, but I'm nervous. I guess there's a part of me that thinks I haven't lost enough or that I'm not doing everything in my power to get my weight down. It's been a struggle all of my life and even with having a bypass, it's a struggle. I look forward to the days when I don't value my worth or my achievements by the scale. Sure, 70 lbs is a big deal, but is it enough? See what I suffer through?
And finally, I have to mention this success: I found the mexi-melt and it's a great meal for me. I was super excited to realize that I didn't even get the afternoon hunger/munchies which I normally do. I didn't even eat again until 6pm when I had some rotisserie chicken from Costco (YUM)! So, that was a good sign. I'm going to keep that in mind next time too!
This weekend we are having a big family get together. I'm really excited about it. I'm a little nervous too because when we get together, we typically make our events eat-fests. I, personally, have taken the "fun" or desperate need for food out of my life, but I'm interested to see how I handle a whole weekend of nothing but eating. I'm planning to get some exercise in too (since there are plenty of places to walk/ride/play). This will prove to be the ultimate "pouch test". Can I handle it without making myself ill? We'll see.
I hope to have some great stories come Monday! :-)
