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…

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.
