Losing weight is great! I have reached my first two goals of fitting in my wedding dress and not having to shop in the plus size section. This has created a whole new shopping addiction. I try not to buy because I still have a lot more to lose. I am almost halfway! There is transition phase from wearing a plus size to being able to shop anywhere you want. Which is amazing to me!! Not having to look for the "Womens" or "Plus" sections. I still find myself looking for that section even though I don't need it. Habit I guess. A good friend told me to visualize a goal. A number. Maybe a goal weight or a size. I would love to be a size 6 but that even seems wierd to type. I guess being a size 8 would be great. Not sure what weight that would put me at. At least 60 lbs which is about where I want to be. I am so happy I decided to have the sleeve surgery. The only bad thing that I can say is that my hair has gotten sooooo thin. Most people I talk to have had the same and say it will grow back in. I sure hope so but if it means thin me thin hair. So be it. It has been worth it just to be where I am. I have so much more energy and feel so much better. I am doing a little yoga and pilates and I love it. Hopefully that will help with the plateaus I keep hitting. Losing weight sure is not easy....it is a neverending battle. I just keep going...what else can you do? Everyday is a new day!
