  7. A year ago I could barely shop for groceries without crying because my back, hips and knees hurt so bad. Today I cleaned my house, did all the laundry, and went shopping.. and I still have energy to spare. It has been amazing tonight, to sit back and appreciate what a blessing this surgery has been for me and most of all my family. I didn't realize how much of a burden it put on everyone by me being so overweight and sick. I really was sick.. I had horrible sleep apnea, diabetes, high blood pressure, and I hurt from head to toe every single day. And it was only getting worse every day. I
  8. Thanks guys! I am feeling better today. I am trying to take an inventory of all the things that I can do now that last year I couldnt.. and there are alot. That means more than what size clothes I wear. Plus every pound off is a step in the right direction... just have to be patient!
  9. Well, I haven't written in here for a while. I guess I haven't felt like I needed to but, right now I am feeling kind of defeated. My hair is falling out by the handfuls, my vitamins and iron are all screwy and half the time I feel like I am not making enough progress. I can't see the weight loss. 4 and half months since my surgery and I am at a place that most people start off at. I am finally under 300 pounds but that still means I am incredibly overweight. I shouldnt complain, I am over 100 pounds lighter than last year.. I feel like I am being greedy. I want people to see the weight
  10. Just started Zumba.. and it is amazing! Every day seems better than the last.. blessed!!

      Wow, that is wonderful and inspiring! Congratulations!!

  12. Trying hard not to lose faith in myself and my body.. need to get with the program!

  13. Ive been having the same sort of issues.. I feel like I should be losing more. One thing that has helped me in recent weeks is watching my protein. Making sure I get 80 grams a day has been a challenge since I cant eat chicken or beef too well yet, but I found some low sugar protein bars and that seems to help. The scale can be so discouraging, I keep having my husband hide it from me. 43 lbs is something to be proud of!!! Every pound counts!
  14. 50 lbs in 2 months exactly! Praise the Lord!
