As I entered my 4th month post-op on November 8, 2014, I realized with the exception of a few updates on my Wednesday Weigh In page, I had not updated the blog in quite a while. There were many reasons for the absence, one being life continued. I won’t say it began, I will just say after the surgery it was just to be continued. With work, exercise and finding the right balance between active social life and active social media, life sometimes there aren’t enough hours in the day to complete every task. I do however keep up with others journeys as much as I can.
I had an amazing few months. I celebrated a birthday on Monday and turning 40 never felt so good. I completed a few 4ortyby4orty goals, and I’m preparing for a huge transition in my life, which may possibly consist of me making a move. I have my health. I feel good, and I’m looking forward to the next chapters of my life.
I am forever surprised by the sizes I drift in and out of rather quickly. Even when the scale doesn’t budge, the inches seem to drip away like water. My sleeves get looser, the belt goes down another loop, the thigh area fits loser, feet get smaller, and breast disappear. It’s all so fascinating.
For my birthday I was able to attend a dinner and was thankful I was able to share the day with close friends and family. One of my goals was once I lost 40 pounds I would purchase a LBD. Well, I actually purchased three. I decided in the end to wear the dress below because it was fitting like a bodycon dress.
- Vince Camuto dress: I also choose it because it had super stretch. The dress is a size small! I KNOW! I couldn’t believe it either.
- Nine West shoes: I went from a size 9 to a size 8 1/2 and now a size 8 in shoes.
- H&M: Blazer and it’s a size….. 12. I know, crazy.
