I'm down 41.8 lbs as of this morning and now weigh 174.8 - lower than my lowest ever lapband weight. Lower than my lowest ever Nutrisystem weight. I survived my first round, including Phase 3, and am back in Phase 2 for my second round. I'm sorry I've been out of touch but have been working my butt off. I posted this today in one of my FB groups, but it has been edited for my privacy.
It's the little things...Rated PG
Our shower got bigger! It used to be so small, and there's so much room in there that hubby and I were able to shower together for the first time in 3 years....and we used to shower/bathe together all the time...it was our "down time" as a couple and kept us close. He walked up to me tonight and wrapped his arms tight around me. It felt so wonderful. He said to me, "have I told you how amazing it is to be able to put my arms all the way around you?"
Each day, I'm finding ME again, not that woman who was eating herself into oblivion, and just waiting to die.
Perhaps on some level it might be fundamentally wrong to base so much of ME on how much I weigh. But I've never been a member of the club that says "I'm fat and that's how it is. You should love me as I am. Big is beautiful." No offense meant if anyone here thinks like that. It's just not me. As my weight went up, my self-esteem went down.
Anyway, just a moment in my busy mind :)
