Whoa! I’m the 200’s Bitches!!!!!!

I’ve seen so many milestones come and go…..and have neglected to update you all who are not my personal friends or family.

My journey has been a LONG SLOG through the psyche of a lifetime fatty and a transition into the world as a normal sized person. I’m still fat at 297lbs, but so is most of the world now. heh. You know that saying “By the time I’m thin, fat will be in”…yeah, I’m feeling it lol.

The way strangers treat me now is completely, radically different. It’s not a confidence issue at all. I’m less confident now as a cripple who uses a walking stick, walker, or wheelchair to get about, but the reaction to me now in social situations is one of respect and kindness. It’s weird. Straight up odd. However, the realisation that people DO treat me differently is validation to my former self that slight snubs were not in fact in my head but were real and intentional! ugh. Sometimes people suck!

Life is pretty good right now. It’s summer break from studying!!! I am now halfway through my degree. πŸ™‚ Lord knows what I’m going to do with it when I am finished as life keeps knocking me down. I am getting my first joint replacement at the end of summer. My lift hip did a runner! I do no have a hip! 😦 Instead, my thigh bone has mutated in an effort to compensate….and all this has done is shifted my pelvis on the left side UP…I have a nearly 2 inch difference now in length of my left leg and right leg.

Now if that wasn’t bummer enough! I am being tested for RA, PSA, and Lupus as something isn’t quite right. My toe joints, my finger joints and my elbows are inflamed and have issues…..I promise you I did not go walking around on my elbows…like ever lol. ugh. Gotta keep smiling though…everything happens for a reason…or some optimistic shit πŸ™‚

I saw my surgeon on Friday….and he was beyond proud of me! It validated so much of what I have gone through! People can say what they’d like about me, but my progress really speaks for itself. πŸ™‚ So neener, neener, I am a success! I’m only 17lbs away from his goal for me, but I have plans to blow that WAY out of the water πŸ˜‰ Just cos I can and I love pissing my haters off πŸ™‚

I have printed out a to-do style list of topics to write about in my blog as I really want to start updating more and talking about the tough shit that has gone on during my journey….so expect a little more haha. Just a little…..maybe monthly or bi-weekly updates. I also want to write a book so I need to decide what to share here and what parts of the journey to save for that πŸ™‚

Without further ado, here are some progress pics!
