September 4, 2010 post date by Megan So, been awhile again, I am getting so bad at this. sigh. But, I think it was because i was on a plateau(notice the word was?? hehe) Seems like I may be back on track. One week I gained 7.4 pounds, I think that was what i needed, motivated me to get back on track. The week after the big gain, I lost 6.6 pounds, the following week I lost 1.5 pounds, the week after that(last week) I didn’t lose anything, but I also didn’t gain 😀 Then this week, I lost 1.6. YAY! This is for a total of 75.1 pounds. 24.9 more pounds and I can say I lost 100! woot! I just want to say I am so glad I did it the old fashioned way and not had the weightloss surgery. I have a friend who did it, she has been helping me with errands and such, so I said I would buy her subway 🙂 So she has a 6 inch sub…no drink, no cookies.. JUST the 6 inch sub, she was barely done half of it and she was full! Eating the whole sub(which is not very much) she felt physically ill because “she ate too much”, and she has just had a lot of complications from having the surgery and she wishes she never had it. 🙁 The surgery may be right for some people, but it definately wouldn’t have been right for me as I have lost 75.1 pounds on my own and in 18 months! Saw my best friend today, she had a baby a week ago, he is sooooo cute! I want one!! Wanted one way before she was pregnant lol the whole motivation to start my weightloss journey, definately can’t have a baby at this size. Especially after the show I watched today. It was on TLC called “Obese and pregnant” saw it advertised sayin coming up next. I said to my friend, ohhhh i want to see this.. wow, made me definately want to lose more weight. They could barely hear the baby’s heart beat under “10 layers of fat” 🙁 she was about 362 close to giving birth. I definately don’t want to be 3 anything when i am giving birth! So I still have a ways to go before even considering it, and i am turning 36 next month 🙁 sigh. Hopefully I will have a baby before I turn 40! Plus I have to have a girl so my best friend’s son and my daughter can get married…lol Hope everyone is well, thanks for reading! Thank you everyone for all your support, it has meant soooo much.
