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!
- 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.
