Dear Scale,

I know over the span of our life together we have had a Love-Hate relationship. I remember how excited I was the days following my WLS when I saw your numbers going down. I was relieved to leave the 300's and I cried when I saw 199 pounds. Never in my adult life have I been anywhere in the 100's. Our surgeon set a goal for us and we flew right past it. I set a goal for us and with tons of hard work we made it but lately Ive been noticing a small problem.

Yes! We still have a problem. I don't know what I have been doing but you keep going down. Well I know what I am not doing. I know I'm not eating enough calories. See my stomach hurts when I eat so I guess I just forget to eat. I know this is a poor excuse and I know I need to do better. I need your help. Please stop moving down. I never thought I would ever want you to stop going down but I like where I'm at right now. I just went clothes shopping and bought some really cute stuff and it fits.

I am so sick and tired of people telling me I'm to thin. I'm not. I know I'm not but when people keep telling you stuff you start to believe it. I don't know what to say to people when they tell me this. I am just at a loss for words...and if you know me like I know you do that's a rare occasion.

So please lets work together on this :)



  1. I can't wait til people tell me im too Skinny.. people have asked how much more I want to loose.. and I say 40-50. Then they're like oh no that's too much. Psh please. The numbers say something different.
    Why does your tummy hurt when you eat? You look amazing. Don't let anyone tell you any different.
    And the brat side of me says to change the convo to their weight when people say your too small.. :) when I think of something not rude yo say, ill let u know but it may be awhile!

  2. I used to say that too! but now its getting on my nerveswhen people say I'm to thin! lol

    I have had pain for awhile now...long story short every test/scan/scope has been ran/done and they don't know what is wrong. The next step is to go in and look around. I have pain after I eat, well really anytime it has started waking me up at night and I have this crazy burning feeling most of the day/night but I still love my RNY :)
