    NerdyLady got a reaction from Trish13 for a status update, Maintenance time for me. I'm done losing weight and on to the next part of my journey   
    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*

    Just checking in to let you know I am still alive which is a good thing.
    I am not adjusting well to chronic pain. Hubby not so supportive.
    A corrective surgery( # 5 I think ) did not go well I may need #6.
    for those who don't know me the surgeries were all orthopedic related to work related injuries.
    will write more later
