Changes In My Life

150lbs and almost 10 months after Gastricbypass Surgery my life is completely different.

You read peoples stories and hear them say how different things are for them after the surgery and you wonder if you'll be the same.

I can't believe the difference in the way I feel, the way I act, the things I do. Just the dumb little things that when I think about it I wouldn't have done before I lost the weight. Getting up and down on the floor to play with my kids is sometihng I don't even think twice about. I chase after my kids, I clean my house, I bend over to get stuff out of the cabinets, I run downstairs to get a bottle of water, I fold laundry and put it away all without a break.

Just the oddest things I can do now that before took a lot of effort. I love being this person I've become. I feel like the woman I was 10 years ago before I gained all the weight.

So far, I haven't felt that I've needed a therapist to talk to or counceling. I think a lot of it has to do with the blogging and reading others blogs. It allows me to express how I'm feeling and it lets me know I'm not alone with the things I'm feeling or going through.

Anyways, just had to get that out. I'm in such a different place in my life and wanted to share how I was feeling.

Back to cleaning! I know I can do it, but I HATE IT! Can't wait to get rid of the house in Vegas so I can get cleaning people again! LOL Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I'll post tomorrow about my first day of work!
