Staying the course
Military Holiday Function 12/09 Spouse and I.
Heavy and unhappy summer 2008
Hi, I'm a gastric bypass surgery patient I've loss 142 lbs so far my surgery was Nov 08. I'm focused on reaching and maintaining my goal weight. I currently workout 3 to 5 days a week. One of my main interest is continuing to get regular cardio, yoga, and weight resistence exercise. Up until now I have not really joined any groups except a surgery group that meets once a month. I look forward to getting inspiration and motivation from SparkPeople. I'm interested in any behavorial and mindfulness information available, and sharing info with others who have loss noted amounts of weight.
I'm working toward a life where weight and health are balanced. I want to live my life not be obsessed with food, calories, and body image. I want to be a runner, a do-er, and just be happy.
I follow my bariatric eating plan. I workout 3 to 5 days per week between 1 to 1.5 hours session. I do cardio, yoga, strenght training, walk/jog interval training. I keep a food journal, and a regular journal.
I'm from NJ but now live in Wilmington NC. Married 29 years, with 2 adult children, and one granddaughter. My spouse is always there for me and loved me fat or less fat.
I love to read mostly fiction, however since WLSurgery I've been reading alot of weight, nutrition, and mindfulness books and articals. I enjoy dancing, walking on the NC beaches, and spending time with my family and friends.

Before you can learn a new way of doing things, you have to unlearn the old way. ... So beginnings depend on endings.

Good morning, gorgeous!!!! You're almost to your goal, how awesome! Just keep doing what you're doing, following the rules, living the WLS lifestyle, and staying positive...that is all it takes Oh, and not giving up from little setbacks (like that 10-lbs i gained that got me to the 140-lb mark grr...) I'm tenacious though, it will go away again!
