40lbs and counting

November 12, 2012

Today I had my 6 week post op appointment and I have lost 42.6lbs since the day of my surgery. I cannot even begin to process that information. I look at my own body and I really don’t see any changes. Others look at me and tell me that they most certainly can and that feels good. However, I wonder when I am going to see the changes myself. I look at myself in the mirror every day and imagine what I will look like and what I will feel like when I finally hit my goal weight.

Until now, all I have really done is go about the business of healing from surgery. Starting tomorrow I am going to hit the gym and work on raising my metabolism so I can make the most of this second chance. My surgeon had nothing but good things to say about my progress today and ensured me that if I start to work out I will really see the difference in my body sooner rather than later.

The bad thing that came out of today’s appointment is that I have a lower abdominal hernia that needs to be corrected. My surgeon wants to hold off on doing that for a good 6 months if we can because of the adverse effects of having back to back surgeries and have anesthesia so close together.

I don’t go back for another check up until January and I really want to make some amazing progess in this time. I hope to go back weighing 190lbs or less which means that I am looking to lose 40lbs in 12 weeks. I think I can, I think I can. I just need to keep my eye on the prize and get moving. Look out world, the skinny girl is busting loose!
