Julie's Journey

what a difference 4 weeks can make

It was picture day today!! Even though I still barely see it when I look in the mirror, I can see a big difference in the pictures since last month.

I went to my doctor Tuesday (she hadn't seen me since before the surgery) she was quite suprised (and pleased) with the difference. When some days are harder than others, I break out the pics and look at how far I have come. I would say without hesitation that I love my band, but every once in a while the whole enormity of what I have done comes back to me, and I have a second or two of uneasiness. The old "OMG, what have I done to myself?" I will admit....those days are coming less and less, but it can still be tough when you want to eat. (I still have mental pangs as I drive by fast food joints) I guess it is just a stumbling block on the way to a smaller, better me.

I have been doing pretty well weight-wise still. Kayleigh and I are heading to Michigan a week from today. I am looking forward to seeing my friends, as well as family. My sister, Sheila, my niece Amy and I are going to the Windsor Casino on Friday!!! That should be fun. My friend Coryliss also wants to go to MGM. We have a Halloween party on Saturday, I will probably get together with one of my moms groups one night for dinner (my friend Theresa and I have birthdays 2 days apart, we always celebrate at P.F. Changs)... and, of course, the evil trick-or-treating. I think Kayleigh is looking forward to it for the first time. I feel kind of bad... she gets all that candy, and we only let her have a piece or two (we are trying to teach her good nutrition, and keep her from having a weight problem) Mean, mean parents ;))

I guess that's all for now.... more soon...

Don't feel bad. Most parents do that. It just means you love your daughter. I'm so happy for you and your progress. You inspire me.
