Back and better than ever

Hi Friends!  Long time no blog.  What a wild few months its been since I’ve last written. 

First, a word of wisdom.  Do not under any circumstances have bariatric surgery and then immediately go back to graduate school about 8 weeks after.  It will nearly kill you!

Lucky for me, and all of you fine people reading this, I survived.  It was the dumbest thing I ever did, but more on that some other day.

Second, I’m getting married.  HOLY SHHHHHHHHH…. you say?  Yah me too!  Got engaged at the end of October…and that has been a wild ride as well.

Third:  Started being able to eat…whatever I could put in my mouth.  Its  been scary at times, yet I feel so much more in control of food.  Its a catch-22 at this point.

Fourth:  Exercise.  Wow…its almost…dare I say fun at this point!  I just joined the gym, and it is going good so far.  I also invested in the Nike+ running system, and I really enjoy it. 

So as you can tell, I'll have a lot of updating to do.  Happy New Year to you all! 


  1. Good, Good and Good!
    Those are all terrific reason not to Blog. Hopefully you can squeeze in a few free moments to keep us up to date on all of these great developments.
    Have fun is sounds like 2010 is going to be a wild ride for you.

  2. It sure is going to be wild...but I'm ready!

  3. Congrats on the engagement! Married life rocks. Hmm I was thinking about the Nike running system- glad to hear a good review.

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…

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.
Hello my friends now from the other side. The sober side that is... This is going to be long. And in parts so I apologize now but I think it's important to get the whole story. I had wls in July 2009. My highest weight was 398 lbs and I remember praying that I wouldn't go over 400... That or maybe my scale didn't. Either way I could not see a 4. Or regardless of a moderately successful career, higher education, and steady boyfriend (now husband) I would have rather killed myself. Looking back at that statement I should have known then that troubles lie ahead. I weighed 180 lbs when I graduated from high school in 2000. I was well liked. Fairly smart. I was actually the fricken homecoming queen and not out of sympathy BC I was the fat girl that got picked on as a kid, but truly bc I was popular and well liked. To this day the hometown still likes me... But truth be told I never liked me. I went away to college and ate. A lot. I was introduced to Wegmans Pittsford. The …
