Well again, it's been awhile. My computer was in the shop for a good month and something. A couple weeks ago I finally got my date! the surgery is set for May 12! I can't even believe it. Honestly I'm not sure it's hit me. I'm still losing weight....granted, I have fallen off the wagon a couple times but got back on and kept going.
It's definitly not easy to completely turn your lifestyle upside down and inside out. I did awesome for the first three weeks and then... yep...I had a whoops... well I've had a few. Considering overall since this process began, I am doing splended. I have a soda once a week along with one meal that is my reward for being good the rest of the week. This happens on the weekends. Usually a Saturday. I began going to the gym daily. I was thrilled on Tuesday when I walked a mile in 19 mins!! I was even more thrilled when I saw that the scale had still moved over the weekend!
I am down to 268.2 Just a little over a lb before I hit my first 10lb goal. I'm stoked that I have been able to lose on my own. However, I know though that it would be a constant forever battle if I were to continue on my own. I have been actively trying to lose since the first of Feb. 10lbs in 2 months, I suppose isn't bad. I'm going to kick it up a notch and add in my weights, just for toning. I would really like to drop 10 more pounds before my surgery. This would thrill me and the doctors!!
I'm getting prepared. I have my chewable vitamins, I'm going to pick up my chewable calicum and vitamin D on Pay day. I already take all three, but for the first 6 wks all of those have to be chewable. I will also stock up on my unflavored protien powder. I really perfer that to the flavored ones. I found a nice "Natural Soy" with 13 grams at GNC. It's awesome in soup.
Thats all I got.... For Now. I'm going to have Aaron take pics of me and get them up here. A few women have mentioned that they regret not taking more photos before the surgery. while I can't imagine ever wanting to look back on my old self, I can see how it would be nice to see the difference. I'm also going to pack away, a shirt and a pair of jeans, a bra and some panties. I want to be able to compare. Should be interesting!! Till next time!
