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.

3 Months! I can't believe how fast the time has flown since my surgery. The changes have come fast, and furious (sometimes they didn't feel that way)!

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 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!

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!
