So I decided to try and eat under 1200 calories per day to see if I can do it. I have low expectations. :) I have no choice if I want the scale to go down. One of the "side effects" for me from the VSG. I have other side effects too... walking, having no physical restrictions I can't handle, more activity in my family life and a great respect and gratefulness for life in general. I'll take those side effects any day. :)
Pics of the day... My 3 year old and I at our local high school football game. My oldest daugher was playing with the high school band that night (her middle school was invited to play with them and go ont he field.:) and I had a ball taking part and enjoying myself with my family.
Last weekend we enjoyed our first fire of the season after putting up Halloween decorations. I was actually putting things up instead of telling my family what to do while sitting on the couch. :)
* I have to say... I am still at least 100 pounds overweight but my life is sooo different. As much as I am disappointed in the weird things that happened to my body after the VSG and sad that I need a revision in order to continue losing, I am sooooo happy I had it done. Soooo happy. I have my moments of being down, but how can I complain when my wish of being able to walk around has been fulfilled. I am working everyday on trying to focus on that fact and realize everything else is icing on the cake... Man, I cry just thinking about it... At the end of the day the pic above are the reasons I did it and are STILL the reasons why I'm glad I did.
