Have you lost more weight?

School is back in session.
Over the summer I got rid of all the big clothes I had.
Everything that looked boyish and big.
My friends helped me to realize that I don't wear size 14.
I'm actually a size 10.
It has taken some time to actually accept this fact.
But now when I put something on that is a little big
I don't want to wear it.
I'm actually ok with form fitting clothes now.

At school people keep stopping me in the hall
And saying, "Did you lose more weight?"
I'm not kidding...since Aug. 17 I think about 12 people have stopped me.
Over the summer I had no appetite!
I just didn't eat very much
Which I know is not healthy.
I wasn'ttrying to lose more weight on purpose.
One day over the summer someone commented on my weight
And I thought...hmm...have I lost weight?
So I stepped on the scale, which I hadn't done since March.
I lost about 20 lbs. over the summer.

I am now at my lowest weight post-surgery.
148 lbs.
My doctor said I would be able to get to 150.
I passed that.
If I lose 5 more pounds
I will be half the person I was on March 20, 2006.
