Finally Past the 40 lb Mark!

Current Weight: 244.6
Total Lost: 42.1 lbs.

Yesterday we a rough day.
I got sick about three times.
That was every time I ate!
Blah...I have to get back to eating good things.

It's rough because everyone around can eat what they want.
I can now eat anything I want too...consistency wise.
The thing is...some foods just don't agree.
Or sometimes I just get too excited about eating
And then I eat too fast.
Not smart.

The two things I haven't had are bread and pop.
I have had a couple of sips of pop...but not a whole can or anything like that.
Pita bread and tortillas are ok with me.
Buns, rolls and regular bread gets stuck.

I think we are getting the bikes out of the shed today.

I look like a butterball on the left!!! I have now found dimples on my face that I never knew I had. All of my pants/shorts and bras are sagging! It was really cool to Photoshop these two pictures together. It really shows a difference! Looking at them gives me encouragment to keep going.

Bad nurse friend says my scar is infected. I better get that checked out.

Good note...I can eat a lot of different stuff now. Bread is still a no no because it gets stuck. Sugar is also evil.

Almost Down 40 lbs!

Current Weight: 247.2 lbs.
Total Lost: 39.5 lbs.

I'm almost at 40 lbs!
20 lbs a month isn't so bad.
I'm beginning to notice a difference in my face.
I can actually see some dimples that I never saw before.
And my clothes are all getting big for me...
Including my shoes!
Keep in mind I haven't even started exercising yet.
Soon I will take my 20 lb picture in the green shirt!

Prom 2006

Tammy and Me

Here is a picture of Tammy and Me at Lake Central's prom this past Friday. Ok...Tammy looks awesome. Now on to me....yes...the dress is a size 22...totally not what I normally wear. My arms look huge in this picture so I have to work on those. Other than that...I look pretty good.

Prom and Mother's Day

Current Weight: 249.8 lbs.
Total Lost: 36.9 lbs.

I'm almost at 40 lbs down!!
Almost time for new picture to compare!

Well, this Friday was Prom.
I squeezed into a size 22 dress that Tammy picked up for me.
I will have pictures of it as soon as my camera battery charges.
I was pretty excited to actually get that thing zipped!
My bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding is actually a size 22.
So, hopefully by wedding time we'll be taking IN the dress!

We had a good time at Prom.
BJ and Leslee came with and they enjoyed seeing everyone dressed up.
BJ also had a good time cutting a rug on the dance floor.

We went to Olive Garden on Saturday with my mom for Mother's Day.
We had to wait an hour for a table but it went by fast.
I had some salad and two bites of a breadstick.
I shared my mom's chicken and basil and tomato dinner with her.
It was really tasty, but I didn't eat a lot of it.

If I lose 3 more pounds by Saturday that means I have lost 20 lbs a month.

The "Lost My Mind" Dinner

Current Weight: 252.0 lbs.
Total Lost: 34.5 lbs.

Things are going pretty good.
I've switched to a regular women's vitamin instead of the Flinstones.
My scar is now bubbling up AGAIN at the bottom.
Annoying as all heck.
Wearing a pad on your stomach does nothing for your self esteem.
I am not paying any more co-pays to have them drain it.
I'll just do it myself. *gag!*

Take a guess at what I ate for dinner last night?
Yes...I think I might have lost my mind last night.
I had a slice of pepperoni stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut.
I tore off most of the pepperoni and didn't eat half of it.
I had 1/3 of a breadstick and then it started sticking.
I had one little cinnamin stick WITH frosting.
And a half a glass of Pepsi.
I prepared myself to barf 30 minutes after that feast of grease.
Surprisingly I didn't get sick!
But...I realized afterwards that...
A) It really didn't taste that great.
B) Pop burns as it goes down now.
C) Grease is gross.
D) Bread is sticky in my throat.
E) How in the heck did I used to eat so much before the surgery???

So, I don't think I will be eating like that again any time soon.

P.S. I think I'm having a bad spelling day. Sorry!

Someone Didn't Recognize Me!

Current Weight: 255.0
Total Lost: 32.6 lbs.

I'm going to see Dr. Vitello again tomorrow.
Just a check up.
Hopefully he'll have good things to say.

Yesterday we had our Journalism Banquet.
Nice buffet dinner.
Hell for me.
But I ate a little of a lot of things so it was good.
I didn't go overboard because I couldn't get sick because I was the emcee!

The owner of the hall where we have it didn't recognize me.
It was so great!
He was're not Wady!
He have lost a significant amount of weight then!
I was so excited!
Hopefully by the next banquet I will look totally hot.

I've been eating pretty good lately.
A lot of food just doesn't appeal to me anymore.
I will eat whatever Tammy makes but sometimes it is just gross going down.
I hate eating these days.
All my tastes are changing.

The only things that I still crave and love....pop and pizza.
Well...I crave think crust cheese pizza.
I can only eat like one little square of it but that's good enough for me.
Pop...I have only taken a couple of sips of Tammy's pop very seldomly.
Today it burned going down...too fizzy.
So...I think it's just the look of it that I crave and the coldness.
I have a weird obsession with water with A LOT of ice now.
No ice...can't drink it.
It has to be COLD.

Well....that's about all that's new with me.
My clothes are getting bigger on me!
And we bought shoes today for prom and my feet got smaller!
