50 + pounds GONE: plus/minus!

Sunday, September 27, 2009

holy crap. i have been officially 50 lbs lighter for a couple of weeks now, but i am still getting used to thinking about it!

i am incredibly proud of myself, happy, feeling great, and excited. . . but there ARE some negatives.

for example, ugggh dear god the loose skin. the puckered, loose skin around my belly button and on my thighs is just terrible! my boobs have pretty much disappeared, and where they once were are tiny little wrinkly....sacs. i still have horrible cellulite on my thighs and butt (SUCH a bummer)! my "new body" looks awesome clothed, but naked....ugh. now i'm kinda missing my fat body! as someone who has always been against plastic surgery, i am now completely not reluctant to say that i would TOTALLY get a tummytuck and a boob job! emoticon

BUT...those "negatives" (which are fairly vain and superficial, quite honestly) are far outweighed by how awesome i feel.

example: as someone who was always plagued by anxiety and depression, panic attacks, chronic colds, stomach/digestive problems, and migraines.....i am happy to say that i have had ZERO panic attacks, NO migraines, BARELY any gastric distress, ZILCH colds/illnesses, and MINIMAL anxiety/depression issues in the past few months! how's that for healthier living?

although this lifestyle change has been THE SINGLE MOST GREATEST exercise in self-discipline that i have ever gone through in my life....i am content, happy, energetic, getting healthier and healthier....and ready to create new goals for myself. another 15-20 pounds before i begin maintenance, and i can't wait for new journeys!

also, absolutely could not have done it without Sparkpeople. so thanks SP!

    Just keep on keepin on! The loose skin should shrink or you can always get a nip and a tuck!! You don't want to be fat again, you've worked hard to get where you are, so lay back, eat your veges and enjoy the ride!!
