It's Been A While

It's been over a month since I last posted a blog update. I guess I've been busy! My daughter has been out of school for a month already, and man, it sure did go by fast. At this rate, she'll be going back to school in no time.

I continue to lose more weight each day/week, although now that I'm able to eat more foods I find that the weight loss is a lot slower. It gets rather discouraging at times. I mean, when you go from losing 5 to 10 pounds a week and then you're at a stand still and lose MAYBE a pound a week, you can get frustrated.

But then again, I will fully admit to not making the best choices in when it comes to what to eat. Two weeks ago I took my kids out for ice cream after my daughter's last t-ball game. My son wanted a scoop of Superman ice cream and without even thinking, I was stealing bites of the ice cream as well. It didn't dawn on me until the bowl was empty what I had done. I thought I'd be so sick. I was shocked that I didn't physically get sick from all of the sugar, etc in it. I was so emotionally sick and disgusted with myself. I cannot believe I let myself do that. Mistakes happen, and I realize that, but I also know I need to be more conscious of what I put into my body. I did not go through all this just to end up the way I was.

I'm so glad summer is here though because there's always fresh fruits and veggies in the kitchen and I can tolerate a lot more food now. Well that, and we are constantly grilling some kind of meat. Still, there are temptations everywhere I go and I need to be careful to not fall into old habits.

Summer should provide loads of opportunities to be physical without actually exercising as well. We have a trampoline and a pool and I'm thinking we'll be spending a lot of time with both.

See! I'm on a trampoline! And I didn't even pee my pants, haha. 

The kids love the pool as much as I do, and as a bonus, I'm wearing the bathing suit that I last wore in 2008. It fits better now than it did then! 

I go later this week for my official 3 month post-OP check up, and I'm hoping the doctor says I'm doing as fabulous as I think I'm doing. I'll update after the appointment.
