in honor of all you lurkers!!!!
as of tuesday, i'm down a total of 250 pounds. still not sure where i'll stop, but i have another 9 months before losing gets really hard. it looks like i'll drop below 200 by then, which will make me VERY HAPPY!!!
and i'm doing fine. saw some friends the other night for the first time since before the surgery. they didn't recognize me! but once they got past that, we had a great time.
and i saw one of my nieces over the weekend, and we hadn't seen each other since christmas. she was a bit nervous and i had to PROVE to her that i was her auntie. and after that, the next words out of her mouth were: when she comes up at christmas, where are we going in NYC? i had to giggle. she wants to go to the metropolitan museum of art to look at the spanish painters. ya gotta love a kid like that!!!
being able to move and walk and laugh and shop and just live a normal life is an incredible gift.
i've eaten one piece of halloween candy, and that'll be about it. and a biscotti this week. still staying on the straight and narrow, other than that: 80 grams of protein [i've eaten steak, pork, chicken, sole stuffed with crabmeat, deli roast beef, deli turkey, brie, bleu cheese, jarlsberg, cottage cheese], some fruit [mostly pineapple], and some vegs [salad, tomato, raw carrots, cooked carrots, green beans, collards, onions], and a few crackers and a couple of bites of italian bread.
so, i'm not suffering.
and the 2X clothes i bought a couple of weeks ago are getting looser... oh well. good thing they were on sale and i didn't buy many!!!
but the next thing i have to focus on is UNDIES. they're now about 8 sizes too big. but they're COMFY!!!!!
hope all is well with you lurkers and nonposters.
