Well I thought I would check in today. It has been since Halloween since my face has been on my blog. Why you might ask??? Was I just too busy? Didn't care anymore?
I found myself getting too wrapped up in how many followers I had, why I didn't have as many as others. Along with comparing myself to everyone else. Why wasn't I losing as much weight, why wasn't I able to do as much exercise. Etc...etc...
So I just decided to step back for awhile.
I didn't stop exercising, or losing weight, or sticking to my eating plan.
In fact I have lost 71lbs today...I am about a week short of my 6 month post sugery mark.
I have made my rough transition from exercising outside to being in the dreaded gym for the winter season.
I am running again, after stepping away from it because it was not fun for awhile. It has been easier running now that I have additional weight off. I don't want to give up on that.
I am finally feeling very close to my green zone! That has been a long road...took me 5 months to feel ANY kind of "tightness", fullness, dare I even say "stuck". Not to the point of being sick, but yes very uncomfortable and painful. I'm very close to that very fine balance. That is a good feeling. I now have 8.5cc in my 14cc band.
It is amazing to look at the weight I have LEFT to lose. When I started this, I had over 100 lbs to lose. That was a SCARY NUMBER! That is a lot of weight to be staring in the face. I now have 40 left, that number seems so do-able at this point!
Bottom line: I am feeling good....and that is what it is all supposed to be about!
