I'm still alive. After I was cleared by the surgeon all heck broke lose with Holiday stuff. Not counting birthdays and parties with friends, I have four houses to go to in December for Christmas. Did I mention they aren't all that local? So any way...Maintained - most important - and will be getting back on track this week as soon as I can make it to the store.
My goal, before December got all messed up, was to be down -100lbs by 01/01/12. If you see my tricker, I didn't meet that goal. However, I could have gained a bunch back which I avoided. Score one for me... or something. Im hoping to lose at least 11lbs by 01/28/12 when we will be throwing my son's first birthday. He'll be one before that, but there is a little one in the family that will be four on the dame day, and I think she should have first dibs on a party since she understand what they are. I think it would great to get well below that -100lbs mark and then only have 70 more to go.
When I first started this, I looked at the big picture and all those pounds. Bad idea. Knowing my history, I basically thought "yeah right! that would take forever." and gave up. One morning I woke up and decided it was time. Time to really get it off and stop playing games with my health. It has taken a while. Mostly because I took off two years. During that break I did something I never could before and that was keeping it off. Mastering that give you back control over your body and life. Now, though, I see the first 45 came off in four months. The next 50 came off, once restarted, in four months. I know the last 15 or so pounds will be hard to get off, but as I'm only taking one month vs two years off for maintenance, at least another 40-50 should drop off by late May before slowing down. In theory.

Its been awhile since I posted. Understandably so. I was busy making arrangements for surgery and someone to take care of my son on the day of surgery. PLus one more good house cleaning before I was not able to for awhile. Good thing too. The Hubby has been great with our son while I'm recovering, but he isn't use to taking care of him all day and running/cleaning the house. He doesn't have my system/routine. Therefore the house isn't getting cleaned. I felt better yesterday, day three of recovery, so I did the dishes. Today I am working on sweeping and mopping. I can't push the vacuum yet. I'll have to figure out how to watch my son, without picking him up, while the Hubby vacuums.
Overall, I am feeling great since the C02 seems to have worked its way out and isn't killing my shoulder any more. Incisions never really hurt. Went out to dinner with family last night and shopping the day before that. They said I could drive on the 3-4 day after. However they probably didn't take into account I drive a tall Jeep that requires pulling myself up into since I wanted to be careful not to pop a stitch. I promise you, I weigh more than 5-10lbs. LOL
I had a slight gain, well a large gain, due to the surgery. I assume that was also an issue with the Co2 and fluids used. That was gone away. I dont go for my follow up with surgeon for a week so no exercising until then at the earliest. I don't like that because I wanted to be down 100lbs by January 1st. I doubt I will be about to lose half a pound a day without exercise for at least the next week. Oh well. At least Im doing well.

As perdicted, after that last big drop in weight I have been maintaining. That is fine. It's good to step back now and then to maintain the loss a bit before losing more. I'm thankful for all my family and friends, this and other sites which have helped me lose weight, and many other things. I'm very thankful that my waist didn't expand after Thansgiving. I have an early Christmas family gathering today. Little more normal food though. Hopefully I can behave. It shouldn't be too hard since I had a gallbladder attack yesterday. That always puts me off food for a short time.
Speaking of gallbladder issues, because its more frequent now and because its questionable that I may have a stone that may have went out into the duct which is a bad health risk, I'm going to be scheduling surgery. Not sure when I'll get back on here.
