I am having difficulty getting myself to try new things. I have had some major 'dumps' (that is literal) LOL!!!
I had an episode this week on one of the 'balance' protein bars. I tried the chocolate peanut butter one (not sugar free) ... BAD BAD BAD!
I am stuck as far as the weight loss ... only two pounds in the last two weeks. However, physically, I feel great.
I haven't posted lately because - unfortunately - I am one of those people that are getting divorced after WLS. Husband left about a month ago --- apparently upset that I am not the woman he married! Go figure - I grew up! He did not and refuses to. I couldn't go through another, 'It's OK, and I forgive you' routine for the latest round of infidelity. Darn it I deserve better!
I think this WLS has given me the confidence to move on with my life --- me and the kids. I've supported all of them financially for a long time --- it was the emotional drain that kept me from challenging him. It amazes me to think of how I took the victim role for so long --- I was truly in denial for years. This ofcourse added to my weight and my low self esteem.
It's funny because at work .. I am the go-getter, the boss, the strong one - but in this area I was truly weak. I gave up the fight.
So ... send those hugs ... I need them.
