Hello, onederland! And struggles galore.

by AHLButterfly on 08-19-2014 at 08:29 PM
So today was the big day. I hit onederland and have officially lost 100 pounds. I never thought this day would come for me. I always thought I would fail.

I'm 6.5 months post op (I think). I did my first huge NSV goal about two weeks ago.. I went to a water park for the very first time with my nephews. I rode all the rides and the kids weren't embarrassed to be seen with me. It was fantastic.

I've struggled a lot with poor choices. I've eaten loads of Taco Bell, ice

Stuck and frustrated!

This is just a place for me to rant. Ugh.

I lost very quickly in week one. The past 2 weeks I've been dead stopped. No loss. No gain. No nothing. Two weeks. I don't get that.

I've lost more weight more quickly on my own. That's pretty discouraging.

I'm sure I'll get through this. I'm just frustrated that I've put myself through this and get stuck immediately one week out of the gate. I know there is the famous 3rd week stall, so I'm looking forward

It's almost time.

What a hectic journey it has been thus far! What I thought would be smooth (because I put in extra work to make it smooth) was very rough. Psh. At least I've made it!

One of my sisters will barely speak to me over this. The other is way more excited than I am, it seems. She can't wait to give me clothes and take me shopping towards the end of the year. It's making me even more excited. Also, my nephews are thrilled at the thought of taking me to a water park for the first time in

I never thought I'd be my own thinspiration!

Okay, so not quite. I was never a thin girl, but I was much smaller than I am now. It's weird. Then, I thought I was just as fat as I was at 280 pounds. I used to be down to 227. Looking back at those photos I'm thinking, "Man! I looked fabulous! Why'd I let that go?" I know why. I hit a plateau, and I didn't see any difference in myself because I didn't bother to take before/after photos. Looking back, ugh. I was so tiny compared to now!! I'm actually jealous of myself.
