Success of the week!

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! :-)

It sounds like you are doing better. I'm sorry you were sick. It seems that family & food always go together, but you will learn the balance of the two. Have a great time and make new memories.
