Well, here I am, an official blogger. I don’t even know what that means! As I mentioned, I had the gastric bypass surgery in June of 2015. At the time of surgery, my weight was 220 pounds. In the gastric bypass world that is small. When I told certain people, they would say to me, “You don’t look overweight”. I think they were just being nice. I did qualify with my insurance company because I also had sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and i was pre-diabetic. Anyway, I have lost a total of 95 pounds and I have been holding steady at 125 for about one year. I am still fat you just can’t see it as easily.
I say that I am still fat because I think that weight, for the most part, is a mental thing. Obviously weight is something you see, but its not just about how fat you are physically, its about how fat you are mentally and MAN, I am I fat. I LOVE food. I think about food from the second I get up until the minute I go to bed. I would be lying if I said I didn’t dream about food. I crave food and if I let myself, I would eat constantly. I am seriously surprised I wasn’t 600 pounds pre-surgery. Food is and I believe always will be my main struggle and I am excited to share more about that with you.
Just for fun…here are two of my favorite pictures of me at my heaviest. I can honestly say, I never saw myself looking like that at the time.
