to account for the five pound weigh gain over the past month.
I'm not a dog, but yet, I'm constantly finding ways to reward myself with food. Once I hit the 100 pound lost mark, I felt okay. I can do so many things that I wasn't able to do a few months ago. At work, I can take the stairs from the ground floor to the 5th floor and can run up two flights of stairs without getting winded. These may sound trivial, but for me, it's huge.
I can cross my legs. I can wear a seat belt without an extender. My husband bought me my first Brewers baseball t-shirt yesterday, in a woman's cut style. That was huge for me! My 5x scrubs have been replaced by XLs. These are all fantastic, but it's not enough.
My motivation is slowly coming back. School starts back up in 2 weeks, and I will have a busy active life again. Thinking back a year ago, I was just starting the process of weight loss surgery, and so proud that I had lost 10 pounds. I have to find some sort of exercise that I like, because I really don't like to exercise.
I mean I REALLY don't like to exercise!
But in other news...I did get a fill today. I was at 6.5ccs and went up to 7ccs last month. The 7ccs was too much and I was so tight that I couldn't keep water down. I ended up going down to 6.25ccs. Today, I got a .5 fill and now I'm at 6.75. So far, all water and my protein shake I have been sipping on, has been going down fine.
I still really would like to get down to 250 by October 5th. I'm not sure how doable that is, but I'm going to do my best to get there!
