My question for you this week is:
What's the last thing that really surprised you about yourself?
Hmm... for me, I would have to say it's that my old habits die hard. I had gastric bypass surgery 13 months ago, and I've lost 166 pounds. I even posted here recently that I don't eat and don't miss all the "wrong" foods that I was eating before surgery. However, I am my older daughter's Girl Scout Cookie chair, and my house has been buried in cookies for the past month or so. It has been really hard for me, watching the yummy cookies come in and go out, and seeing my family members eating them - and I've found myself sneaking a cookie - or three - here and there, even though I know it will make me sick. So, it has served as a wake-up call to me that I really need to be vigilant about eating right for the rest of my life!!
