Create A Life That You Love

Wow, what a HUGE difference 10 weeks makes! It’s been a few weeks since I have checked in with you but it is for a great reason!

I have made myself a priority! My health means more happiness and more joy not just for me but for those all around me.

I am 10 weeks post op and I have lost 43 pounds. I walk 3 to 5 miles every day. Those walks are my peace time. I live about a mile from the ocean so I walk down there and enjoy seeing the waves and sea creatures and I BREATHE!

I turn off the phone, I do not answer texts. That 60 minutes to 90 minutes belongs to ME and ME ALONE!

Because I have dedicated that time to me I have found more happiness. I don’t get so twisted up in everyday things that don’t really matter. I don’t let the news make me sick to my stomach. I love on my husband a little bit more. I go to bed at a decent time and wake up refreshed.

Exercise has allowed me to work more efficiently and it helps me to remember to take breaks for myself. No more sitting at a desk all day then cramming crap food down my throat and having sleepless nights.

I have actually even started Hoola Hooping! YES Hoola Hooping. My waist is taking on a nice little hourglass shape.

This surgery is not an easy fix, it’s not a quick fix. You have to put the work in! You have to want it, you have to be willing to let go of things that no longer serve you and you will be rewarded with things you have never imagined.

I meal plan! It’s key to your success. I think ahead of having something around me that I can eat in emergencies. I carry protein bars in my purse. I purchased a lunch box that has heated inserts so I can carry my food with me when I have to go out. It’s ALL a part of success!

I have not added junk back into my life. No cookies, sugar or things that would not serve my body. My tummy is tiny, she has no time or space to waste on food that will not fuel this new body.

I am happy
I am healthy
I am enjoying this journey
I am beautiful
I am … ME

I hope you take the time to enjoy this journey and you take it serious enough to make the changes needed. Come on in….the water is fine!
