It’s been awhile

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Yeah, I keep hearing that from my friends and family.  It’s been awhile…It sure has!  I have now lost 107 pounds.  Where in the world did it all go!?!?  I can now eat pretty much anything but sugar and bread – good thing too.  Because going on a cruise restricted would have been no fun!  Just a side note, but did you realize that you can get sugar free deserts and fruit even on a cruise?  I’ll have to give a shout out to Carnival Cruise Lines for their healthy choices.  I proved you can lose weight, even on a cruise.

Here is another interesting observation from someone formerly claiming to be, “Big boned.”.  I am now in an average sized man’s wardrobe – key here is average now days is still large!  So, I am not the big guy coming down the halls anymore.  Well, the problem is, I still see myself as a “big guy” – just that others don’t.  So when I go barreling down a crowded hallway now, people don’t move for me.  Now a 100 pounds ago, that was not a problem.  Today is a different story.  Not that I mind moving now, as it’s much easier to weave in and around the people that are just standing there or shuffling along.  They warned us at the bariatric center that things like this would happen, but who woulda thunk it?  Not me!  I have quite a few more stories I’ll be sharing in coming weeks.  Let me hear back from you on your observations.
