Perfection

I have to remind myself that I don’t have to be perfect at everything.

I don’t know about you, but I am a perfectionist at heart. So this is hard for me, but I have to let go of some things.

Are you putting energy and effort where you really don’t need to?

Blessings!

Knees

So after a 115 pound weight loss:

Apparently per my rheumatologist I am no longer bone on bone with my knees!  I am to take it easy with exercise, and to build up the muscle around my knees, but for the most part, I can start doing things I want to do as long as my body allows it.

Dancing, yoga, jogging—really anything I want to try.

2 Years ago yesterday…was my gastric sleeve surgery and while I am not at my lowest weight I am no where near my heaviest! I have had some regain but no guilt. I am so very grateful for my path here.

So…blessings today and always!

Bariatric Surgery Update

Today I had my 1 year and 10 month check up.  I shouldn’t be here today, but since I have had regain (13 pounds), they want to have a tighter check on me.

I know what is causing my regain, and for me not to lose…is wine and not exercising.  I need to cut back on the wine, and walk everyday (or at least 5 times a week).  These are two separate things of course.img_2818But I have to remind myself of where I have come from…and this is not the end.  2017-04-13 11.43.37Not happy with where I am at…but so happy from I was.  Will update later next week on my appointment and the path I will be headed.

Blessings.
