Weight Loss and Surgery

I haven't posted about my weight loss journey in awhile. I gained a couple of pounds over Christmas then had surgery on January 3rd. The surgery helped me lose about 5 lbs. So I'm at -11.4 lbs total.

Weight loss is hard. :) And I love food, all food. I need to find a before picture but since I hardly ever took pictures of myself that may be hard.

Healing from surgery is a long process. I'm so eager to get back into my exercising but am limited by my healing process. I am walking on the treadmill again for about 30 minutes.

Surgery? You may ask, what surgery? Well, I had a reduction in the upper region of my body. hahahaha. Something I have wanted forever. I'm sure it will be worth it in the end, but the pain I'm going through is intense....unbelievable. I'm so tired of being in pain that it actually affects my mood. :( The doctor did warn me that recovery is bad and especially the first 3 weeks. She was NOT kidding!

So that's what's going on in my journey to a healthier me.

I am sooooo jealous of the surgery you had! I've wanted to do that since I was 16!! Maybe one day!

I had that same little reduction in May and yep- it was a lot more painful than I thought. Especially since I didn't really get a break from picking up kiddos. At week 4 I really started to notice that I felt a whole lot better. Way to go on all the weight loss! You rock!
