What's different?

Thursday, December 08, 2016

Over the last last 7 months things have changed dramatically for my DH and myself. This change has literally changed who we are. I feel like a different person while my husband looks and feels like a different person. What makes this time different??

First, I believe that the gastric sleeve surgery my DH had has made a huge difference...Well of course it has, his stomach is now the size of a medium banana so he has to eat a lot less...
Secondly, my mindset has changed. I use to get so consumed with this or that that I would forget about the reason for my changing my lifestyle to begin with. This time around I incorporate my lifestyle change in everything...Even while I'm watching TV I'll stand for a bit in front of my chair and walk, march, or jog in place. Exercise has always been my pitfall, but this time I'm not stressing over it, I'm going with the flow and so far that flow is exactly where I want/need to be.

I've changed my attitude as well...I have such a positive outlook on everything, I think my family gets annoyed with me sometimes. emoticon

So, this week, my weight has dropped 4.2 lbs. This is HUGE for me at this stage of the game, normally I'd be losing like .5 lbs if that a week. That's how different things are now. I'm .8 lbs away from my December goal and 8.7 lbs away from hitting ONEderland...Oh the things I'm looking forward to.

Thank you for stopping by!
