Keeping Score

For those of you keeping tabs on my progress...

I did in fact complete my 64 oz of water yesterday... and am halfway there for today! I also got my workout in this morning... even though it was freezing cold and I really wanted to stay in the nice warm bed!

I don't know what it is that has changed... but something is driving me up those stairs every morning, and I thank God for it! Maybe he's pushing me up there every morning, and holding my hand to get me going... whatever it is - it is making all the difference in the world.

As I sit here eating my lunch - I just was struck with something that seemed quite commical to me... my lunch is in a snack-sized container... and has room left over where more could fit in there. Just to think how a few months ago my lunch would have looked very different... and it doesn't even phase me now. Don't get me wrong - I've never been a big over-eater in terms of portions... they were bigger than they should have been, but it's not like I ever ate 4 hamburgers at one time or anything like that. It's just that now my meals are 1/2 a cup in size, and 4 months ago - that might have been the portion of one of my side dishes... or maybe even a little more than that!


  1. I went to eat dinner at Moe's last night (the burrito franchise) and had a moment where I realized what a difference it was too. I used to eat the BIGGEST meal I could order, and still not feel full. Last night I ate half of the inside of a smaller burrito, and I was perfectly satisfied! Yay surgery!

  2. I think that is wonderful!

    I gotta tell ya, I am pmsing and when that happens I always start to get really freaked out about having this surgery. The freak will be over by next week, but tonight, it is making me crazy!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
