I bought some shorts for the gym today. I haven't worn shorts since I was 8 years old. I have had body image issues since I was that young, even though I wasn't overweight til I was 21. I have a LOT of hanging skin now around my knees and inner thighs from the weight loss. I am kinda embarassed to wear them. =/ I want to overcome my embarrassment and just do it. It's gunna be really hard!

I was lifting weights the other day and was in front of a mirror and noticed my arms (which I plan on chopping in November) and now I am avoiding mirrors at the gym. Learning not to give a f**k is the hardest part of all this, for sure. For me anyways.

How about wearing capri leggings instead - something with a bit of hold to them?

I wear longer capri-length pants to the gym, but I do wear short-sleeve shirts, which show my bat wings. I think it's an age thing. I'm 54 so I don't care what people think anymore. I only care what I think about how I look and I'm okay with it.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
