Christmas this year was pretty damned awesome. Also it was the first time my Christmas stocking wasn't FULL of chocolate and candy. And you know what? That was fine by me!
Aside from lots of lovely gifts from my friends and parents, I also got the best gift I could have ever imagined. I was getting out of the shower and looked at my nude body in the full length mirror. I then realized that, while I'm not happy with my body, I am no longer disgusted by it. I couldn't believe that I was looking at myself (and trust me, I'm still all lumpy and saggy and not at all good looking naked) and I wasn't cringing or thinking of how much I hated what I saw. I realized just how amazing our bodies really are. I weighed early this morning and found that I have lost 111 lbs!
And for tonight, I made a nice little Bariatric friendly dinner. It's a half of a chicken breast, rubbed with ranch dressing mix. Then wrapped with bacon and cheese and baked. Also made myself a small side of mushrooms sauteed in butter. Yep, I sure do suffer with my new diet. :)
