Back to Basics...

I want to preface this entry by saying, that I feel great. I feel though that I am not making the best choices when it comes to food, and of course, vitamins.

The best part of going back to school is that its time to get back on a schedule. Working and school will only force me to become more diligent about my vitamin regimen and eating. I need to get back into protein shakes/supplements, as I am constantly falling short of the goal. My calories are okay, not great, but okay. I need to call the nutritionist I think.

Today so far I have cleaned, and broken the coffee pot. Good thing we had an extra one in our storage unit.

Tuesday is my class night. I must pack and prepare snacks for the car ride (1 hour plus there, 1 hour back) and for during class too. Any ideas? :)

Hope your weekend was as nice as mine was!


  1. Hmm, snack ideas... can you eat peanut butter? What about PB and celery sticks? or PB and apples w/o the skin?
    Or fat-free yogurt, low-fat cottage cheese, or low-fat string cheese? Maybe some lean meat slices?
    I don't know exactly what you can/can't eat, but hopefully this helps!

  2. Thanks lady! I can eat PB - I have been sticking to the chunky natural stuff lately. All these suggestions were good! LF string cheese is one of the main staples of my diet too! Thanks!!!!

The ugly truth

The truth is...I'm in recovery. The other truth is emotionally, I'm a disaster.

I haven't written in here because the truth is, losing libby was originally about weight loss surgery and how much weight I've weight I lost. In the past few months, more emotionally damning crap has happened to me, my family, my parent(s), my brother, and many people in my ever shrinking circle.

I am an addict.
I am well educated.
I live in the suburbs.
I have a child.
I have serious mental health issues.

I tell you all of the ugly in an attempt to hold myself accountable for the things I have done, the things I have put my family through, and most important...what I have done to myself.

If you would have told me five years ago or so that I would be unemployed, filing for disability, and doing medication assisted treatment for addiction...I would have laughed in your face and said you were crazy.

The truth is, like many other Americans, I'm not the only one.

How did this…

the report is in

I had my six week check up yesterday, and everything looks good he said. The incision pain is best case, a small tear where the sewed me back up, the worst case, a hernia. He said it is too soon to tell, and chances are that it will just heal up on its own in about a month. I am down 32 lbs since surgery, for a grand total of 54 lbs. DA-UHM! I am feeling pretty good of course, just this occasional pain BLOWS.

In other news, I have to go back to work on Wednesday. Blargh! I am pretty much not looking forward to this, but alas, time to go back to working for the man. I wonder how much has changed? Should be entertaining no doubt.

My beautiful friend Jenn is getting married tomorrow, so I better straighten my 'fro out and get moving, cuz I am the official page turner for the pianist. Later kids ;)

Much a blog about nothing…

So I haven’t written in a while.  Losing Libby hasn’t lost in about a year now.  Haven’t really gained either, but regardless, life definitely happened.  I recently watched the beautiful Eggy on the Ricki Lake Show.  She embodies what most of us feel post gastric bypass.  That there is still this obese person even if your not as obese as you once were.  It was a good wake up call to me, proving that my job of losing weight is not over, nor will it ever be probably. I’m getting older and I can feel it.  I feel old sometimes.  Kind of like, who is this 75 year old woman kind of old.  I need to move my ass more.  So the next phase of Losing Libby is going to be about losing my bad attitude about exercise.  God help me.
