Day 23: Being sick sucks!!!!

I was planning to post yesterday but was feeling under the weather. John and I both have been not feeling well this week. On the plus side I haven't eaten as much as I normally would if I hadn't been feeling bad. Yesterday was the weigh in day for the week. I think this is the week 3 mark. Almost a month and another posting of a picture.....I haven't changed that much. Anyway I did reach my goal and lost another pound this week. So down to 255lbs, but I think it had a lot to do with me not feeling well so I feel like I cheated.

This weekend is my nephew's first birthday party, so happy birthday to both Max and Jacob. How lucky am I? Two great nephews days apart! So exciting. I am looking forward to seeing my sister and everybody. I miss them so much.

Speaking of my sister I told her about trying the new medical weight loss thing and she was so supportive. It was good to know my family is behind me with this. My mother is also behind me with this. It was kinda eye opening when we talked because she was explaining how worried she was about me and I didn't realize she was that worried. We also talked about how I will never be back to my original size, which I knew that. I'm not crazy. Between my sister, my mom, and my husband we have all decided that for me to get back to about 145 to 150 would be wonderful. My original weight was between 120 and 125. I feel we have been very realistic. Also just for the fun of it and for me to reminisce I'm posting a picture at my original weight. I know I'll get a laugh out of it and possibly get some motivation.

The thing about losing weight is that I think most of us have a picture in our head of what we used to look like or what we would like to look like. A lot of us think that we need to get to that and if we don't, we give up or we give up before we've had the chance to really lose anything. With me going into this with the knowledge that I will never be what I once was and accepting that is a good thing. So, I'll be saying goodbye to this part of my life today by posting this picture.

Day 23.....Looking forward to the future and a better me.
