Let me start by apologising. I had gotten so busy, and didn’t have time to come and post updates, for anyone who cares *rolls eyes* LOL. This is more for me than anything or anyone else. I have been keeping up with my weight loss, as you can see from my title. I have weighed in every Saturday since I started. But it is for my own record as well. I feel horrible not updating, but I am happy I am keeping up with my diet.
I have had some struggles, some failures, and some triumphs, and today, I finally, even though it is 3 months later than I had planned, I reached my 100 lb milestone, one of two I hope to reach, I WILL reach.
This all has been a bit scary. When I was younger I ended up being diagnosed with an eating disorder. It got pretty serious, and I ended up going to one of those eating disorder treatment facilities to get help. I was very scared at first to be perfectly honest, but everyone was so kind and supporting, they pulled me out of it. Something about starting to watch my weight makes me feel like I’m touching that line again. I’m just a worrier is all. Many years have gone by and much has happened since then. Everything has and will be fine.
As a celebration, we went out to eat at Wendy’s yay, haven’t had a hamburger in over a year, and believe me, I won’t be having another one for another year. I already know how that would end if I continued eating them. I become a blow fish, if I do. So yeah, I ate it slowly, and enjoyed every bite. So I posted on my facebook, and this is what the post read.
So today marks the day I lost 100 pounds, ‘finally’, its crazy, and i feel so blessed that i was able to find the strength to be able to do this the natural way. My eyes opened up after i was hospitalised for another illness not related to my weight, but when they weighed me, I was shocked and at the same time not surprised. It takes a lot to not eat certain things you are so used to eating all your life, I had thought about gastric bypass and the numerous other surgeries, but honestly, i am one who would not be able to afford it, and i refused to put that burden on my wonderful honey William. I knew I had to find the strength and do it, he is one of my biggest supporters, i love him to the moon and back. So since it has been over a year since i had a real burger, i celebrated and had one, the only one i will have until i hit my next goal, which is another 75-80 pounds, yup I am still a chubba wubba, hehe. I won’t go on with this anymore, i’ll write it in my blog, but I am so happy and so proud of myself, I wish my mom was here to see me now. Anyway, I thought I’d share, this great news with those that may be interested Yay go me!
I am pretty happy about it, although I have to say I had planned on hitting my 100 in mid January, but i kept doing the whole yo-yo thing, was very upsetting, discouraging, disappointing, but I did not let it bring me down, and I continued to go forward, and I will do so from now on. I am where I am, and I am so happy to have my biggest supporter William, I love him to the moon and back! As I mentioned, my goal will be to lose another 100 lbs, and I will be at a weight I can live with. So wish me luck folks~
