Just another day. I didn't get on the scale this morning. Thought about it after I was already dressed and had breakfast. Nothing new to report on this end. Someone is showing the house tomorrow, so I'm fixing to go and clean up the bathrooms and make sure all that stuff is done so all I have to do tomorrow is open the blinds.

Wow, kids are a lot of work! Not much going on today. Stayed home in my jammies all day long and did some laundry! Jacob has 2 friends over for a sleep over so it's been a crazy night. You don't realize how much energy feeding 2 extra kids and hollering at them takes. No more kids for me! They're watching a movie now, told them it was quiet time because the princess is down for the night! I'm going to surf for a while, nothing at all on TV. Might grab a movie or maybe Friends to watch.

Wow, today was a super busy day. My sister is moving so we were moving her furniture and boxes for about 3 hours today. After we got home and got the little one down for her nap I relaxed a bit and played some made up war game with Jacob. Then we had a class from 6-7 so we did that then stopped at Mc Donalds for dinner. I had a filet o fish sandwich with only the bottom bun. I ate about 1/3 of the sandwich and was done. It tasted OK but I would have rather had saltines and cheese with some dijon mustard. Anyways, going to watch Ice Age II. Will probably post again this weekend!

Well, I'm almost down 60lbs. I'm so happy but at the same time bummed because I'm still in a 22/24. I want to be a 16 now!! :) But I know time time time. It's only been 10 weeks and 2 days...so I keep reminding myself that. I could never have lost that much that quick without the surgery. I have less than 100 to go! My goal is 150 but realistically I'd be happy at 175. So, if I were to hit my goal I have 98.6lbs to go, but if I hit my realistic goal I have 73.6lbs to go. Keep your fingers crossed for me! I want to be a size 10/12.

Well, today Steven left for Missouri. It was so so hard. After being married almost 10 years, we've never been apart more than a week. I cried off and on all day but tried to stay busy. This is going to be so hard. I hope our house sales fast so we can get out there. I'm sure I'll be posting every day to give myself something to do. I just realized I didn't update my weight for my 2 month anniversary. I'm down to 254.3, so I've lost 52.7lbs since pre-op appointment on the 6th of December. Oddly enough, my size has only gone down one. That has me a little bummed. But the number keeps going down, so that's what I have to focus on. Going to start working out this weekend, now that Steven is gone I have NO excuse!

WOW, last night was terrible. I went to bed around 11 and about 12:30 I woke up in such pain and nautious. Needless to say I was up until about 6:30 this morning, throwing up and just miserable. I even took the luratab (sp) and got no relief. Luckily my husband let me sleep until about noon and I was feeling a little better, but was still nautious. Throughout the day I felt better and so far tonight I'm doing pretty good. Maybe that was the end of it. It was just the worst pain ever. Tomorrow is my 2 month "anniversary". Anxious to do measurements and get on the scale!

Well, let's see in 3 days I'll be 2 months post-op. I had a little problem Wednesday. I started having a really bad pain in my lower left side of my back. It was so bad it was causing me to throw up. (Basically throw up nothing because I couldn't eat). Anyways, after calling the doctor twice he had me go in to the ER. They did my vitals and said it sounded like kidney stones. Great! After a catscan (sp) and urin test they confirmed that is what it was. Thank goodness they were very generous with the pain medicine. Anyways I'm feeling a little better now. Just not sure how long it takes for them to pass. They told me to check when I go, but I'm not sure what I'm checking for.....oh well, hopefully they'll find their way out soon!

It amazes me how much I use to love to eat. Now-a-days I have to force meals down. Eating has become a chore. Things still sound so yummy but then when it comes down to eating I'm just like blah. One thing I've discovered is Wendy's plain baked potato with their chili and some shredded cheese. Seeing how it lasts me about 4 meals, it is soooooooo good! That is pretty much the only thing I actually enjoy eating. Oh, and stick cheese and saltines....OMG that is so sad. I use to look forward to eating a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, or a Whopper, or a Double cheeseburger from Sonic....boy have times changed. I look back and can't believe it's already been 7 weeks and 2 days. The time is just flying by. I'm so glad I went through with it though. I don't regret my decision at all. I'm looking forward to the day I can fit into a size without a W on the end! Anyways, off to bed!
