Progress!

I have lost 43 pounds!  I truly cannot believe it.  I wanted to get a perspective on how much that really is so I found this chart (below).  I lost a whole border collie and 3 guinea pigs!  lol  When you put things in perspective like that, it's very interesting.  We went to the grocery store the other day and carried all the groceries up to our lovely 3rd floor apartment and as I was going up the steps, I thought "hmm I wonder how much this stuff weighs".  I started thinking how happy my body must be not to have to carry that weight anymore.

 
 
On another note, I truly believe that God puts different people in your life for a reason. And a lot of times, they come at just the perfect time.  If you don't think that way, you probably just bypass how awesome He really is.  But I was thinking yesterday... "wow....I really do serve an on time God". 
 
I went to my first counseling session yesterday.  I was so incredibly nervous.  I was so anxious that I even had a really weird dream on Monday night about the whole thing lol  Glad it didn't turn out that way!  So anyway.  We talked for about an hour and I felt really comfortable with her.  She's actually been through a lot of the same things that I've been through and has lost a huge amount of weight herself.  Again....truly a God thing because I could not have found a more perfect counselor.  It really makes me feel better about the world of counseling again.  I used to think I wanted to do that. But then I had my psych eval for my surgery and she made me feel judged and ashamed without even having to say anything negative.  Then I decided that maybe that wouldn't be the best thing for me.  After meeting with this counselor, my hope for counseling has been renewed.  Who knows.....maybe in the future.
 
Tonight is kickboxing.  When I did the kickboxing last week....it was rough!  I'm anticipating the same tonight lol  but thankfully I have a friend going with me this time so maybe it won't be as bad.  Monday, there wasn't an empty bag in the entire place.  That means there was 45 people in the class.  That's a lot of people.  I prefer when it's like half of that but oh well.
 
Oh.  So I'm having my hair colored tomorrow night and cut on Friday afternoon.  My friend KG is going to do some pictures for me on Saturday.  I figured I need a new facebook profile picture since the one I have up now, I was 43lbs heavier (hello huge face!).  I still haven't exactly announced on facebook that I had surgery and I don't know that I will unless someone asks and then I don't mind telling them.  I took my measurements the other day and I've lost a total of 21 inches.  Overall, I'm pleased with my progress so far.
 
k....I think that's all I've got for right now :)

  1. I love it when God has a plan for us and when it's revealed there is that lightbulb moment! I didn't announce my surgery on FB either. :)
