Week 12

Well, I had a fantastic week (food-wise) and it definitely showed on the scale this morning. Weigh in was 232.1. That's a loss of 2.4 lbs from last week and 32.3 since surgery!! Finally at 30 pounds down! So excited. I've been eating things I would probably consider weird if I'd not had surgery--meals consisting of random lean lunch meats, string cheese...actually, that's about it, aside from green beans the other day and protein shakes for breakfast. Oh well. It paid off :)
And thanks to Ronnie and Trisha for their comments on my last post. I can definitely get down with some fruit and nuts.
I've had some weird food/body related thoughts lately. About a week or so ago, I was being cranky and told Ben that everyone hates me and blah blah blah, then I thought about "Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, guess I'll go eat worms." I don't know about everyone else, but I heard this from a young age. Granted, we don't actually see worms as "food", but does this perhaps teach us that it's okay to make food our friend? No, I'm not blaming this little tune for my out of control weight. That was my fault. Just something to think about.
Another thing I was thinking of today was umbrellas. It's been rainy here for the past couple days, and I just think it would be really nice to be able to fit my whole body under a standard sized umbrella. Does anyone else think about this kind of thing? I mean, it's really crappy to walk to class, sit down, and find out my butt's wet because it doesn't fit under the umbrella. Oh, the annoyances of being fat. Oh well, one of these days, it'll be different.
And speaking of walking to class, I'm off to be scholarly. Hope everyone has a great day!

I can't help it but I laughed at the butt being wet comment! LOL cause it happens to me to but I never realized that was the problem!! LOL

I think so many distorted weird off the wall things in my head DAILY about my weight and ESPECIALLY about food.

I got into a fight with a fun size snickers earlier today and unfortunately the snickers won. All 80 calories of it!

GREAT job on the loss!!!!!!!

It is weird what constitutes meals now as opposed to before, isn't it?! :)

Great job on the loss this week, sounds like you're doing fantastically.
