**i had to see it with my own eyes..finally i have proof**

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

well for many ,many years.and after about 8 surgeries.i didnt want to lose weight,b/c i was so afraid of hanging skin after wards.my stomach is just so ..uneven ,and scarred up.its an emotional subject for me.when i look at it,i feel so disgusted.and i wish i had a belly button.lol.so when i went to the dr. yesterday,he told me how proud he was of me.i said i have a question..am i going to be left with a bunch of excess skin on my stomach.he said let me ask u this..r u losing weight the right way? r u eating well,exercising at least 3-4 days a week,also r u strength training? i said yes ..all the above.
well then he told me how he lost over 200 lbs.! then he raised up his shirt(just enough for me to see his stomach),there it was ....NO EXCESS SKIN!i had to see it for myself to believe it.
he said people who have surgery to lose weight,or people who lose it really fast,and dont workout,or strength train..end up in the end having to have a tummy tuck.
so i am relieved.

tonight my husband calls me.he is hundreds of miles away.actually on his way to New York.so i say 'hello' i hear nothing..then i hear this song playing.it was called "in the eyes of the angels". emoticonoh i fell in love with him all over in that moment.he said he heard that song ,and it reminded him of me.i miss him so much.but soon i will get to see him,and he will be home for a whole week!! emoticonits so hard when he leaves out though.our boy just keeps saying"daddy..hoooome".ok i know i am soo cheesey.
well thats about it for tonight..god bless spark family..christina emoticon

    You ARE NOT cheesy! Cheese makes the world go round-or makes it a happier place!!! You go,Girl! And give your hublet an extra hug from your Spark friends when he gets home to you.
    Much love and good wishes from Maine! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yup, the skin thing is definitely something I was worried about in the past. Everything I have been told says is your skin still has electisity in it and you lose weight the right way and not really fast, then you won't have to worry about it. But you know what, even if I did have extra skin, it's not like it would be a deal breaker and make me gain weight just to fit into the skin! I am doing this to become healthier and look better. Even if I do have some excess skin, I can still be both of those!!!

    That's one romantic Hubby! You lucky gal! Glad he'll soon be home and you can enjoy him for a week! Doesn't it feel great when your doctor praises you? That's terrific, Christina! You have been doing such a great job, and he (your doctor) gave you even more motivation (just by lifting his shirt! LOL!) to continue on your healthier journey!

    That is so encouraging when your doctor is so supportive and helps you think positive about losing weight. I get a great relief and a smile on my face when I see success stories about ones who lost the weight (100 +) and look absolutely wonderful in swimsuits with no lose skin and never had anything done surgically.
    That is so sweet of your husband to play that song for you. Little things our husbands do for us really take us by suprise at times..lol and when it happens it makes you feel so warm and cozy inside.
    I hope you have a great day, and have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon
