    Maintenance time for me. I'm done losing weight and on to the next part of my journey. I'm not quite sure what to expect but I know that it is a challenge I'm willing to take. 
    GAH! I've lost over 75 pounds. A few of those pounds are a result of removing my hormonal IUD. I'll take that loss. I'm going to continue to weigh every day to make sure I stay on track. One pound a month can turn into 12 in a year. I'm not willing to take the chance of relapsing into weight gain. 
    A month or so ago, I posted about making a new friend who has a sleeve. The other day she said "I love being thin but I also love nachos. You know what I mean?" Maybe it's because I'm a newbie but no, I don't know what she means. I hope I never know what she means. 
    My husband and I don't feed our daughter junk foods. We get teased by other parents that we make our daughter eat healthily. I usually blame a family history of diabetes. The reality is that I want to instill healthy eating patterns for my daughter so that she never has to face obesity and WLS. 
    I hadn't intended for this status update to be so long, but here we are. TTF is my confessional. A place where I can be as honest and work through my food related issues. At some point or another, we all lie to ourselves. I want people to call me out when I'm being unreasonable and a gold star when I've been a good girl. 
    NerdyLady out. *mic drop*

    It was my birthday on Friday! Forty. Six. I just can't believe it. I'm so happy to say I feel better now than I did at 26.  No cake for me, but I truly enjoyed my day all the same. Can you believe that? It's true!

    I can't believe how long it has been since I haved checked in! I am now 4.5 years post gastric bypass. I have had a pretty smooth ride. I have gained a few pounds (10-12) and want to get rid of it so I thought I read around for inspiration. I still feel great.
    My look has changed.  I no longer wear hijab. I needed to change some things to improve my feelings about myself and my marriage. Things are good now.
