Another Update

I haven`t posted for a few days... why... I don`t really know. I`ve been feeling a little down and have no idea why. Mom went home a couple days ago, so I`ve been on my own. I`m finding it very hard getting enough protein, and sick of adding protein powder to everything. I`m finally allowed to have pureed food, so today I have to go shopping for some stuff. I can have poached eggs, and I`m going to make a lentil soup later today. It`s now become a chore to eat. I actually don`t feel like eating! I never thought I would ever say something like that.

I weighed myself this morning... I`m at 247lbs. It isn`t coming off as fast as I was expecting, but I guess every little bit I will take and enjoy. My problem now is trying to get out and start moving. My anxiety seems to be getting the better of me, and I have to seriously give it a kick in the ass. It will be a struggle to get ready today, but I`m determined to shower, straighten my hair and put make-up on. I`m losing weight and I should start feeling better about myself... so how come I don`t? When I get down to a normal weight... will I still feel fat and depressed? What`s wrong with my mind? When I have an UP day I`ll take it.

Bump up my post on Mom Blog Network


  1. Hi Kimberly! Just stopped by to say "Hi" and to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

    I've known a couple people who have had bypass surgery. It's pretty common to feel a little blue. One friend explained it to me that she felt as though she was in mourning for her old way of eating & living.

    Remember it gets different before it gets better. Hang in there!

  2. Aw it can take some time to lose weight, but you will be happier once you start to see the results.

  3. Hang in there girl...things will look better soon! Weightloss is tough on all of us whether we have had gbp or not. I am sure once you see the pounds start to drop you will get the umph you need! I tend to get really anxious myself and it's tough. I always tell myself deep breaths but so much easier said than done at times.

    Keep smiling and thanks for linking up with us today. :)

  4. Following you via Thursday Friends & Giveaways . Hope you will follow me too @

  5. Hey there. I hope you're having a better day today and know that it takes time but is worth it. At least I keep telling myself that - I'm workin' on losin' it too. :)

    Anyway, I'm following from the hop. Would love for you to stop by


  6. You're in my thoughts -- hang in there, girl!

  7. keep thinking positive thoughts....You can do it :)

  8. Your body and brain are going through withdrawal -- withdrawal from food, and especially from sugar and carbohydrates. Combine that with the physical shock and trauma of surgery, and you're really thrown for a loop.

    It took me a good three months to really feel like myself again, but I bounced back from feeling down and drippy about four weeks after surgery. I hope the same happens for you!

    P.S. I'm a year and a half out now, and I still rarely have the urge to eat. I don't get hunger pains, and coming up with high protein stuff can definitely be a hassle. My suggestion: stock up on eggs, cheese, and yogurt. :)
