I can't believe its been a minute since I last posted, life has a funny way of prioritizing daily routines, and while I do feel some sort of way about not being here to support those new in this journey and old friends, there is a sense of relief that life has normalized with this "new normal" way of life after Gastric Sleeve Surgery for me.
I have had a busy last busy last month to say the least, but my health and well being have had first priority, that's definitely a new normal for me!
So my fancy scale broke, and I was forced to live without the daily weigh-ins, but I knew my tool was and continues to work toward reaching a healthy weight. As of last week I'm a size 10. I feel as though I skipped size 12, and considering that I've had my moon twice since last weigh-in I feel ✨elated! ✨
I will be wrapping up my graduate school application this week, my contract is at UT is ending next week, traveling to Guatemala for most of December, and I'm in a weird place in my relationship and have consider moving back to California.
I hope all is well with everyone that i have come to know in this forum, and if you are new and perusing through blogs to help you makeup your mind please know this surgery was the best decision i have made in my life! It stopped the unchecked weight gain due to prediabetic and Type 2 diabetes conditions, i have now lost close to 70 lbs or more. It's isn't easy, but it's worth the sacrifices ive have made to be where I am today. At least i know that I am on my way to a leaner healthier me!
