So, lots of things have changed/happened since my last post....seems to be a common theme with me these days. I guess that's good. At least life isn't stagnant.
Where to start???
Okay, well, I had a tummy tuck in December. Yep, I did! And I'm healing well. I will upload pictures once I get my laptop here. And, I am also in Onederland. I am at 192! I have lost 98 pounds!!!! NINETY EIGHT POUNDS!
I cannot exercise vigourously yet...I probably could start walking, and I will this week. I am still tired.
Educationally....I withdrew from my PSW course. I decided the 'scope of practice' wasn't for me. Instead, I am going right to the nursing course for September. It just makes way more sense in so many ways for me. My final chemistry mark wass 85%, which I'm pleased with. And in February, biology starts. Also I have one more surgery, hopefully at the beginning of Feb. That will give me plenty of time to heal, and then take care of some things before my course starts in September.
Trying to still do the gluten-free/refined sugar-free thing. I'm not 100% strict on that yet, but I will get there again because I feel better eating that way. It's all in the mind. That's where the power comes from. If you believe you can do something, you will. If you doubt yourself, those doubts add up, and end up being counter-productive.
I'm the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Somewhere along the line, I lost myself, and now
I am on a journey of rediscovery, of health and happiness which includes losing the weight that is holding me back from really enjoying life. I found The Gabriel Method (www.gabrielmethod.com )back in March and have been working that since. I believe he's got the key. In addition, I am on a self-imposed refined-sugar-free/gluten-free eating lifestyle. Exercise has become something that I love, that I crave, that I truly enjoy, thanks to discovering P90X. P90X is challenging, and killer, and awesome! Going Primal Baby! Blogging about this journey is going to be interesting.
