Attempting to blog…everyday.

Starting today I am going to blog everyday. 

Quit laughing…No seriously. 

I really enjoying blogging.  It helps me stay focused and keep me in check.  Plus I keep pimping this blog out at the support group meetings and then I never update so alas, here we go. 

Goals for October:

1.  Blog everyday (minus yesterday…I don’t count it because it was a Friday :) )

2.  Lose 10lbs by the end of the month

3.  Track my food via The Daily Plate (via Livestrong)

4.  Move my sweet arse a bit more than as of late (which really means, I haven’t done anything since May)

So we covered numero uno, no onto….

2.  I have instituted a weight loss challenge to the cult.  Who ever loses the most weight percentage wise by the end of the year wins a lemon drop martini.  I am going to try to do 10 lbs every month.  I am at a standstill weight wise (due to number 4 probably being non-existent), so time to get cracking. 

3.  For some reason, this has been just as difficult as blogging!  WTF!?  So this attempt may almost be as hard as….

4.  I have two gym memberships.  Seriously. 

So people…its time to get with it.  I don’t consider myself a failure with this whole WLS thing, because I have lost a crap load of weight, and fit into clothes that I haven’t seen in over 10 years.  Actually – longer.  Wow.  But I know the “bad” habits are creeping back in.  Bites of junk food here and there, sweets, chocolates, etc.  I need to cut this crappola out.  Oh and my good friend, Mr. Carbohydrate, well he is an ever present force that needs a swift kick in his butthole out of my life. 

So join me, in the re-education of Losing Libby.

  1. You make me smile, and it's not just because you're funny looking. I'm happy for us that we're (once again) using the tools we know we have (including our heads). Many hugs and much love. C

  2. You are inspiring me. How about a challenge of everyone who reads this walking everyday....just start out by once around the block everyday....I know I can sure use a walk a day. Thank you for being you, Libby!

  3. Katie, excellent idea. My doggie loves you for suggesting it.

  4. You look amazing Libby!! Congrats!!

    I'm totally up for a challenge! I did not have WLS but I am trying to lose weight and any push would help!

    PS: I'm adding you to my google reader so I can read your updates everyday!

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.
