Here's a recent photo- my friend and photographer Kim Kwan had me goofing around:
I'm not digging the excess skin around my waist, on my tummy, under my arms, on my back.... but it's better than the alternative, which is skin stuffed with fat! Oh, then there's the saggy boobs and wrinkly neck. Oh well-nothing tastes as good as thin feels!
The loose skin is just a fact. That's what happens when you are fat for years and then experience a rapid weightloss. I fuss about it, but I welcome the skin with open arms! When the economy turns around, and the boys college fund is secure, I'll get my neck skin tightened up and my boobs lifted. Maybe.
Next month I'm going to a lecture sponsored by my surgeon called something like "Getting Back on Track". While I've been doing really well, I can see I'm making some poor food choices...Twizzlers instead of fruit, that kind of stuff. I'm also slacking of on my vitamins. I go through phases with them. Sometimes I get really tiered of chewing those chalky muti-vitamins and the gritty calcium tabs. I love my surgeon- you can have counseling for life!
This will be my second Thanksgiving that I am not worried about eating too much! It's a nice feeling.....
