I am feeling amazing

                                             
It's been 3 weeks since I have written.  I have had 6 Physical Therapy appointments.  I am working on my back, my core, my arms and legs.  Isn't that pretty much every part of my body?  
I know that I leave there and feel like my legs and arms are noodles.  Today not only was my back sweating, but my butt was too!  Glamorous huh?  lol

As hard as I can work out my O2 saturation is still not going below 90 which is great.  

I honestly have not felt this good since I was in my 30's.  I am now a size 12, down from a 3x.  Needless to say I have had to buy all new clothes, bra's and undies and a coat.  It gives me that much more confidence that I won't allow myself to gain weight and to keep losing.  I would like to settle at a size 10 or 8, and lose another 20 pounds.  
I have lost several inches since surgery.  

I still have this blob in my stomach which pooches out from the Fibroid Tumor on my uterus.  I am hoping in January to have the surgery back in Portland to have it removed.  
It seems that Bill needs to have his knee replaced, so I will plan my surgery after his so I can take care of him.  Lord knows he took care of me long enough.  

As much as I am getting used to me living in a healthy body... Bill still hasn't.  I have to call and check in with him everywhere I go.  He constantly reminds me to take medication or to not forget my O2 at night.  When I go to Physical Therapy he tells me not to over do it.  I think we both need to watchfully realize that I am not the damaged person I was 2 months ago.  Still being careful and to listen to my body, but I am ready to live now.

I am finding my faith getting stronger, which makes my spirit just want to shine.  I am struggling and praying for Bill to make small changes like terrible cussing and drinking.  It's sometimes difficult to remain positive when he gets so negative.  I just keep on praying for him.  I can't get enough Church.  I would go every night if Bill wouldn't put his foot down.  Already I am going on Sunday's then twice a week to Bible Study.  

I will keep posting and letting you know how things are coming along.  I have a feeling I might put up the Christmas Tree this week.  I will have to talk Bill into putting the lights up outside before the snow sticks.  
I'll post pictures after it's all done.

I would really appreciate knowing what plan you followed to lose all the weight...was it Weight Watchers?
I know you struggled for a long time...thanks, Savannah

Savannah,

I used weight watchers for a while, but it seemed I was only losing maybe 3-5 pounds a week. Sometimes actually gaining. Finally I just got smart about what I ate. I watched my fat intake, was sensible about portions, ate lots of veggies and some fruit... Mostly apples and watermelon... the apples are loaded with fiber and the watermelon is mostly water. I also drank lots of water. I had to cut my calories way back in the end because I was just sitting around doing nothing physical. It took nearly 2 years but I lost 100+ pounds. I still have about 15-20 to lose, but I am in no hurry.

Thank you, Kellie! I think you got it right...I've started losing by just being "sensible"...I don't like sweet desserts, etc., so that was easy...just gotta watch the cheese and chips :) Started making my own croutons with healthy bread and olive oil, so when I want to "binge" a handful of those does the trick :). I am SO happy for you, you look fantastic and I know you feel better...enjoy your holidays! Savannah
