As my mother always says to me “life marches on”, and so it does. I have continued my weight loss. I’m now at around 145 pounds lost overall. I don’t really recognize myself in the mirror, or in pictures for that matter. It’s a joy to be able to fit into clothes that I’ve never dreamed of wearing in my adult life.
BJ and I went to our first hockey game a few weeks ago. It was in an arena where we had been to a concert several years ago. At the time I was around 300, and I didn’t fit comfortably in the seat. As I sat down in my seat to watch the game I literally asked BJ, “are these the same chairs that were here when we went to the concert?” Indeed they were, and I had plenty of room on each side of me. It was a comfortable fit.
This is a never-ending journey. I still have a lot of work to do. I need to be working on my exercise and eating habits.
I went to a plastic surgeon a few weeks ago to inquire about getting the excess skin on my abdomen removed. Some of the surgery may be covered by insurance, but the part of my abdomen that bothers me the worst is not going to be covered. I am not sure when I will be able to get this surgery done, but I am going to do my dead-level best to make it happen. I already have so much more self-confidence that I’ve ever had in my whole life.
