So today is the actual day of Thanksgiving! I am going to the "inlaws" for dinner! It should be pretty healthy as they usually do the clean eating thing!

Today I started a new goal I had for myself, to do atleast 5 miles on my new excercise bike a day! I am happy to report that I did 5 miles while watching reg and kelly today! It felt good, my legs arn't as strong as they used to be as I've been laid up for a month. I'm still really tired and sore. I actually have a follow up ultrasound tomorrow to make sure everythings A-OKAY, which I am not looking forward to. The last ultrasound I had I was in tears because it was so painful! Why must they push down so hard and re-do it like a million time! I felt like it was TORTURE! I'm hoping that now my gallstones and gallbladder for that matter is gone, that it won't be as bad! I'm also hoping I start to feel 100% again! I hate being tired all the time! I want to go back to dance class and socialize while getting a work out!

Food has been okay, I feel that I don't eat as much now, so it's less time consuming thinking about food all the time. I used to think about food ALL the time, what am I going to eat next, when, what am I going to eat later. I looked forward to food way too much. I love food way too much. I still have struggles, but I don't want to be sick again, so this is the new way I have to go about it, which is great! I would love to lose another 10lbs by the beginning of November.

Thanksgiving today, so I thought I would say what I'm thankful for:

I'm thankful for my boyfriend, he is so wonderful and sweet and caring. I don't know what I would have done without him if he wasn't here after my surgery.

I'm thankful for my dad, he is the best dad anyone could ever ask for. I don't know what I would do without him.

I'm also thankful for my friends and family, who are a great support system and lovely.

I hope everyone has or has had a wonderful thanksgiving! xo


  1. My post op ultrasound was much easier and less painful - good luck to you! My outlook on food did change somewhat after the pains that it caused me, just dont fall into the trap that I did where I started to REALLY enjoy food again, like way too much! I gained all the weight that I had lost and some more before finally reaching my highest weight (it took almost a year! and I had a lot of other things going on that contributed). I am thankful that I am now on this journey to lose weight and that I have the support from the blogging community.

    Happy thanksgiving! :o)

  2. It was less painful, but still uncomfortable! Thanks for the tip, I will have to continue to watch what I eat! I love the support of the blog community and all the healthy tips!
