Weight loss continues to happen! 

I'm completely back on food and still losing weight! Woo Hoo! I'm now at 138.2lbs lost! Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo!

It's been kind of challenging losing weight a whole lot less dramtically than I was losing before. This last week I lost 2lbs and the week before 1lb. Now I'm very pleased and proud of those pounds lost, but when I used to average 6.5lbs a week when I was on Optifast, it's kind of different to get used to!

Now that I'm officially off Optifast, I'm in a group called STARS (I know it stands for something, but I'm not sure what) and we meet weekly. This past Friday we got a presentation from a plastic surgeon and it was really exciting! I'm still a long way from ready to have surgery as I still have a bit of weight to lose, but it's still good to know what options I have.

For those of you that may have never been really obese, you might not know that when you lose a large amount of weight, you have quite a bit of excess skin that used to hold your copious amounts of fat. So when you lose a lot of weight, for some cosmetic and some medical reasons, some choose to have that taken care of via plastic surgery.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I've been really challenged by work lately and consequently I haven't been making it to Water Aerobics. I was really wrestling with this and was asking myself, "If I'm working 25 hours a day 8 days a week, how am I going to get exercise in?" Well, I got my answer! A co-worker mentioned that a group of women are walking and asked if I wanted to join. I didn't hesistate one second when I answered, "Yes, please!" It's been really cool!

Here's hoping that your finding answers to your challenges in creative ways!

Peace Love & Happiness!
