I have thought about closing this blog down. Things are going good for me now. I am looking for a job, still staying on track with eating right and exercising daily. I try not to get discouraged since many of my friends have had gastric and are losing weight like crazy. I know it is a journey I want to take to do this on my own.
I feel I have always been a good person, nice looking, with a good personality. But it is nice to know I am getting healthier and not because I have had surgery, but because I have worked so very hard to change everything about my life. My friend who has had surgery has had to change everything about how she eats too so she is going through a lot of the same things I am. The only difference is she has lost almost 50 pounds and I have lost 1/2 that amount. It can be disconcerting at times. I know I will get there, it will just take time.
In the meantime I am glad the kids are about to start school and I am really trying to find a job. I am ready to go back to work!
