New Olympic Sport…

Over the last couple of years I’ve lost way more then a hundred pounds.  I’ve blogged about it.  Now when I went and first started this journey I knew of things that were to come.  I knew there was going to be excess skin..

Not me.. but looks like it could be

They told me that I would have hair loss… and after they put on the table wrong and I couldn’t tolerate any food for the first month they said I’d loose most of my hair… and I did..  I have pictures of it but cannot locate it, but because of the way they put me on the table for the 4 1/2 hour surgery I had a spot approx 3-4 inches wide that lost every bit of hair on the back of my head.  Luckily it was underneath so it wasn’t visible unless you lifted the hair.  I also had badly thinning hair, so much so my boss called me Chemo girl.. yeah he’s a prick.

They told me that I would most likely loose my girls… and yeah I did…I use to have really nice tata’s… now..not so much…

see.. I use to have great boobies

What they did not tell me was I was going to have learn how to shave my body all over again… only this time I needed to be able to contort into gymnastic positions to be able to do so!  You see, because I’ve lost so much weight I have area’s that are sunk in, such as my under arms and behind my knee’s!  No matter what I do, I cannot seem to shave these area’s without help!  I’m twisting my body into positions that would make my husband excited to see!

If the Olympic committee is looking for a new sport.. I have it!  Shaving after loosing 100lbs!

  2. that’s amazing – i haven’t looked as far back to find out what it was that spurred your weight loss but i hope you’re proud of yourself/feeling amazing/better….whatever it is you hoped to achieve throughout this. – its good to see you making light of situation (no pun intended) i have stretch marks and a ‘grannies’ tummy from having my son and theres not much i can do about it so you do have to learn to accept your own mini flaws…its what makes us human and reminds us of what we have achieved. 🙂

    • Thank you.. I am proud.. I suffer from BDS so I still only see fat.. but I’m working on it. I had 2 c-sections and a hysterectomy before the Bypass surgery.. so I know all about that not being able to do much about it. One day, hopefully I’ll be able to see me and not what my brain thinks I am.

  3. I lost about 75 lbs after having my son almost 12 years ago. I slowly put back on about 50 of it after my hysterectomy. After trying a bunch of other stuff, I finally hit on the low carb thing a few months ago and am down about 30 lbs so far. I have lost at least 1 jean size, and would probably be down 2 if it wasn’t for the fact I need a fucking tummy tuck!! I can stand being a C cup instead of a D, but I want to get rid of this extra skin!! I feel ya girl!
