Anniversaries

Tomorrow is my one year anniversary from weightloss surgery.  I had the sleeve surgery.

My highest weight was 396.

My surgery weight was 370.

My current weight is, as of this morning, 254.6, even though I saw 249 on the 2nd.  Stress eating and not enough water and protein (aka junk food and carbs!) will do that to you.

I haven’t seen 249 since I was 16.  I’m 30!

Non-scale victories:

  • No way would I have completed the three major races I did along with getting the 1086 miles I walked this year. That’s a feat in and of itself.
  • I can get into a Walmart size 20 pants. Before I couldn’t get into any pants and I was wearing one of their 5x shirts.  It was NOT baggy then.
  • Lane Bryant is the same: I can get into a 20/22 and an 18/20 shirt as long as it’s not clingy.
  • I put on a Torrid size 3 shirt; I didn’t think I’d see the day where that size shirt would be baggy.
  • I even dropped a shoe size!
  • TMI: I didn’t used to get my cycle.  Now, I’m every 45 days, like clockwork.

Choosing to have surgery was not easy.  The journey to get the numbers on scale to match what I feel I should be has not been easy at all and it’s still taking hard work.  But I’m almost to a “normal” size thanks to having the surgery done.

Now to find coffee!

Listening to:  Office chatter.

Reading:  between books right now.
