So the story continues.......

So far so good weight loss peeps. I am fairing well after surgery (knock on wood) and I am feeling more like myself. Still down on my energy but I am hoping to get that back up soon. Each day that goes by, the better I feel.

The funny thing about weight loss surgery is even if you know what to expect…you really don’t have an idea until you experience it. A lesson learned. It has not been to bad…my weight loss is slow…it is frustrating, but then I remind myself that it has taken 30 years for my body to get how it is it will take some time for it to get down to a healthy weight. That is really all I want is a healthy weight! Also the stalls I have, I believe allow my body to catch up.

Today is a skinny day. Definition of skinny day is as follows…I actually feel smaller. I still have my fluffy days. But today I woke up wore a shirt that usually clings to my belly, and guess what…it flows over my belly and I have room on the sides! Amazing!

Is it funny to be a lil scared of being a healthy weight? I was thinking the other day about how I may have saggy skin. That has been one of my main concerns/fears with weight loss surgery (how vain, I know) But then I mentally kicked myself …I am doing this to be healthy. Period. I will deal with the extra skin if it happens or becomes an issue.

Only other thing that has been concerning me…is my EDS Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Since being back at work I have been using my hands a lot. My poor hands are not fairing well. They are extremely painful and more claw like. This is very disconcerting. I need to see my family doctor soon and see what they can do. Pain and work….something I am trying to do. Some days are better than others. Today is a not so great day for my hands.
