Got on the scale and saw I was down 40lbs today! Hooray!
Everyday is still a challenge to getting enough fluid and protein into me. I can't complain though, because the weight keeps coming off and I am slowly shrinking down. I’m really excited about getting thinner, but there some things that I know are coming that I’m not really looking forward to. I went into this surgery aware of them and, to me, the “pros” definitely out-weighed the “cons.”
One of the things I am most afraid of down the road are “bat wings.” You all know what I’m talking about…that flabby, jiggling, arm fat/skin that hangs down and waves along with you as you wave goodbye to a friend. Extra skin around my thighs, butt, or stomach…I can hide. (honestly, thats why I plan on buying stock in SPANX) But arms? They’re right out there…BAM. Smacking you right in the face.
There is not much I think I can do to prevent the sagging skin. But I am sure as hell going to try my best! So, I made sure I got a personal trainer before my surgery and I made EXTRA sure she was aware of my arm fears. I’m really glad that I’m going to start working with her next week.
Despite my new positive attitude, I seem to be reminded of “bat wings” everywhere. So, here’s a clip from the show “Family Guy” that I think about while I’m at the gym to keep me motivated. Enjoy!
