Sometimes life gets hard... but it always gets better!

There has been so much change in my life over the last two years. Most of if changes in me. To be honest with you, I was starting to drown. Finally admitting to that was difficult, because I pride myself in making it through life without letting it affect my mental well being.

It's a Mental Game.... Everyday!!

I often talk about my food intake, my weight, my exercise, but I rarely talk about the mental part of this journey. My least favorite comment is the one made by someone who has either never considered the choices I have made, or cannot comprehend the fight I endured that led to my choice of surgery: "You are doing great, but it must be so much easier now."

Yes, the weight is coming off much easier than it ever did in the past. I don't have to worry about how much I'm eating because my stomach takes care of the for me (if I listen), and while it's still difficult to stay motivated, I am much more active than before. But, the battle is really in my mind now.

I had so many plans to write... but life!

I just realized that I am almost 4 weeks out of surgery, and I haven't updated. I had every intention to write a new blog every week about what had happened, how I felt, etc... but life happened! So here is a quick update on where I've been, where I am, and where I'm hoping to go!

Post-op Week 1: Let the adventure begin!

Wow! What a up and down week! So much happened so quickly, I hardly know how to put it all in words. Oh, I'll try.. that's what I do, but it feels like so much!
