Has it really been over 4 yrs??

Has it really been 4 years and 9 months since I last posted??  I should have listened to myself, should have posted daily to keep myself in check with my weight. 

It has been 7 years and 3 months since my gastric bypass weight loss surgery.  The surgery helped me lose 108 lbs in 18 months.  In the last 5 yrs and 9 months I have regained 52 of those lbs, bringing my weight back up to 222 as of last week.  Why am I such a food junkie?  Why can't I just do as the thin people do and just say, "no thank you" when offered something, especially when I'm not hungry when the item is offered!

I've been an avid reader of other people's online journals and finally realized that I have lots to say, even if it's just to get it off my chest, even if no one else but me ever reads what I have to say.

It's late, almost 2 a.m., so going to get some sleep (I'm a night owl so this is my regular time to get to bed).  I will think of where to start writing tomorrow.



  1. I found you through Julie's blog. When I say Julie I mean midwestvintage.  Wow, you started blogging a  long time ago!  I guess you were one of the very, very first!  That is something else!  By the way, you shouldn't think that nobody wants to read you.  Perhaps people just don't know you well yet.  You should put your journal address on the bottom of your comments and people will be more likely to find their way over to your journal.  You can copy and paste it from your browser, or memorize it.  Put it under all your comments if you want to!  By the way, I am a night person also!  Night is the best time, isn't it!  Okay, nice to meet you and take care,

    Krissy :)  

  2.  Well, I am so glad to get the link to your journal.  I understand exactly what you mean about not being able to say no like normal people.  Why does it have to be so hard?    We just hang in there.


  3. I found some more things we have in common.... we are close to the same weight and struggling with that, and we're pretty close to the same age.   Please keep posting.
