Oh Laurel...

You are such a life-saver! I am so glad that you are on this website, I really am!

I think I am just getting really frustrated. I think that in the back of my mind, I was just sure that I would at least lose a few pounds for a FEW days while I was going through all this and when I didn't I thought, "Is there NOTHING I can do??".
Even though my weight has gone up and down a few times recently, I still haven't been able to get it below 160! Before this, 140 was the heaviest I ever was (that was when I had no muscle, btw.. I still don't, I just know that some people here are 140 and look GOOOOOD). Then, my lifestyle was so different.. I ate really crappy food, late at night, got no exercise, drank alcohol a lot, didn't get bad D.. and I never went about 140.
Now I don't eat junk food, especially not at like 2 am like I was before, I take m dog out for walks, I try to get in exercise when I can (I am so bad about it, though, I will admit it) and I STILL am 20 lbs more than what I was... Maybe it's getting older??

Anyway, to have a breast reduction you aren't supposed to be 'overweight'. I am more than certainly overweight. I don't even know how much I should lose. I mean, the woman at Fitness World said I should weigh between 108 (?!?!) and 124 according to their charts (I'm 5'4 with big boobs) so even if I lost the minimum there that's..more than 40 lbs to lose. I know 108 lbs is just ridiculous, but even 124 seems impossible right now.

I won't be able to have the surgery until I have lost, I imagine, at LEAST 20 lbs. I wouldn't want to have it before then! When I was in England and was like 130 lbs, I still had big boobs so I know I have a lot of breast tissue.. and that's what I want removed, not just fat tissue. Now that my mom has breast cancer, I have even more reason to want excessive breast tissue removed.

What do you think??? I hope this makes sense, I am really rambling..
