Feeling Good Today

I am feeling good today...some days that's quite a chore...but today is good. The weather has improved my mood greatly. It is so nice to be able to step outside and go for a walk in the fresh air and sunshine. I walked for 30 minutes today and it felt good. The bottoms of my soles hurt a bit. I am thinking maybe a new pair of shoes might help. Perhaps that could be my 50 pound reward. We'll see.

I have been reading a few other blogs lately and really thinking about what an effort it takes to change who you are. I know that wearing this fat suit for a good portion of my youth and all of my adult years so far has had a negative impact on me...more than I care to admit sometimes. I don't think I could ever have guessed the amount of head work I would have to do along with the body work. Surgery is such a small piece of the puzzle. I think only my fellow lap banders can understand that.


  1. You are so right about the head work.. once you get your head in the right place, the other stuff falls into place. But you are doing a great job down 48 lbs.. that is wonderful.. Glad you are getting out and getting your PE in.. keep on chippin away at it.. give your self a hug..

  2. Amen. But, I believe the head work is very possible. I worry about that piece... frequently. Today, my husband commented that he knows the band has helped, but he can see changes in my choices as well (aka the "head" work stuff).
