So I called my doctor's office yesterday and the nurse called me back a couple hours later. She assured me that they would call me as soon as they know. Irish Lassey and Amber, you both can imagine her telling me that with a sigh like "chill out woman". I felt silly but I know I couldn't have been the first to call and want to know. So I went to bed that night praying to God that they would call me today but no call. Well, tomorrow is friday. Boy wouldnt a call with an approval make my weekend so much better? If I dont get a call it will be ok. I have a busy weekend planned. My son wants me to take him and a couple of his friends to the mall in the evening (great excuse for me to see a movie) and Saturday I am going to an event at a local church. A speaker - Joanne Wallace and it is an 8-4 thing and of course church on sunday.
Something else I was contemplating and would like your feedback on. If you have had the surgery already did you go on a diet or I should say, did you start your new eating habits before the surgery (besides the pre-op diet)? I am just wondering if I should start working out again and start staying away from the bad foods, to get used to the idea. I actually weighed myself this morning and I lost 3 pounds. So I am 278 now, which is still a huge number.
I am actually dreading going back to the gym, not because I dont want to work out but because I have gained weight since I last went. I had to put a hold on my account last Oct cause we were really broke and as of this month it is back to charging my checking account. So yes, I am an idiot for not going yet this month but since Oct I have gained probably 20-30 pounds and I am soooo embarrassed. The person I hate the most to see is the personal trained I actually worked with a year ago. I feel like such a disappointment. The gym I go to is a womans gym but they do have men trainers, which i think is fine. I have a picture of what I looked like when I worked with him.....after 3 months I had only lost like 15 pounds but I know I gained muscle. In this picture I was dressed and ready to hit the gym when my son said "Mom, you look skinny, let me take a picture" I was happy that day. I put on a top I have for at least 10 years and never worn cause I didnt have the right arms. I didnt feel skinny cause I was still obese but man how I would like to look like that right now. Here is the picture....
A part of me wants to wait to lose some weight before I go back to the gym but that just sounds absurd! I hate caring what people think. It is my downfall.
I took some pictures the other day with just a sports bra and underwear on and I will eventually post them but I just cant right now. It is too painful for even me to see.
Thanks again for following me and again let me know if you think I should start some sort of diet. I do have protein powder already. Can you tell I am ready to go???
