My Goals:
I want to weight about 130-150 lbs, so I can keep up with my exercise obsessed DH. He rides his bike 50 miles every week end.

My Program:
I had gastric by pass on July 2, 2010. So, I'm following my doctor's orders for my Rue n Y bariatric surgery.

Right now that's 24 oz of food a day, with 2 protein shakes and supplements. I have lost about 140 lbs, my scale can never make up it's mind and I know I shouldn't but I weight my self every day, multiple times. I just know I will go up and down as much as a couple of pounds and not be discouraged about it.

Other Information:
I'm somewhat of a Geek, I have been using my iPhone for the last 2 years and came to find Spark People through the applications as I was looking for receipes. I have over 250 applications on my phone and wish I had more memory for storage!

I carried a Palm OS Zodiac 2 for the PIM's and such and probably had almost as many apps on it. I set up my earlier palm pilots to use my cell phone as a modem to let me browse the web. So slow, that was back about 2001 or so. Also my bag got heavy carrying around all the cables I had!

Hello, and thanks for your comments on my blog. I have my lipid profile done in 4-6 weeks, and I am hoping to see an improvement from six months ago. Your comments were a big encouragement. Hope your hubby catches on soon!

P.S. I will sparkmail you some links/info about the rhododendrons...
Have a great weekend.

Hello Dianna my new friend,

Welcome! Wow Girl! You have lost around 110lbs. That is an awesome achievement. Congratulations on your weight loss! Thanks for being a part of my journey! I'm looking forward to sharing continued success and good health with you! A couple of years ago I was heavier than I am now. I needed to leave the environment that I was in, so I did. That did help a lot. I have now lost about 40lbs. so far, so I now feel like I'm on the right path to making positive changes in my life and moving forward. It really is great to meet fellow Hoosierains here on SparkPeople. We can talk more at the meeting Saturday, I'm looking forward to it. I'm really excited to meet everybody! And about the exercise buddy; I don't mind the exercise part, but my funds will not allow me to do that right now... sorry. I am so proud of you! If you are still going to the meeting I will see you Saturday then. I am just starting here on SparkPeople, and Iím looking forward to getting to know my SparkFamily better along that path. I'm glad you're apart of my SparkFamily. I have already met a lot of warm, caring and supportive people; like yourself, and I've only been on here for a short time, and I already feel the "LOVE!" I wish you continued blessings and good health along this life journey we are taking together. You are an inspiration to all! Keep up the good work.

Always remember youíre beautiful and awesome! Spark On, my friend!!!
Judy
