My new form of counting days is from my Transplant day (July 1) being day 0, and July 2 as day 1, etc. That's the way they count it at the hospital, at least. It represents my new life without a ton of medical problems.
I lost albs this week! I am now at 243. I cannot remember the last time I weighed 243. After I write this, I am going to go try on my size 18s to see if they fit comfortably yet. Before, pre-transplant when I was 245, they fit, but they were tight. Even though I'm only 2lbs from where I was before, I feel like my muscles are toner now, and so maybe I will be smaller haha. Idk.
I am 6 lbs away from my "no longer severely obese" goal and 41 lbs away from my "no longer obese " goal.
-- That's honestly how I feel. If I tried on my size 24s I wore my senior year of HS and freshman year of college, they would probably fall off. Actually, I don't even have them anymore - I passes them on to my mom haha.
Another success - I am starting to eat my regular amount of food, and eat at least 5 freggies a day without really thinking about it
Now, instead of trying to find what won't make me go over my calories, I am trying to find foods soI can meet my minimum.
Also, I can see little progresses in the gym. For example, I have upped the difficulty on the treadmill. They have pre-set workouts I do, and I am now officially on the 2nd one. Also, I have been upping the amount of weights I'm using. For example, yesterday I went to use to hip abduction machine, and after the first set, I couldn't feel it, so I got to increase the weight
Here'a a non spark related success - I was re accepted into college this week, and I made my schedule. I have 18 credit hours scheduled, but I have done 18 successfully before, and it will mean I get to graduate in Music, and then hopefully start my human nutrition degree in the fall
These are the classes I am taking:
Written Theory 4
20th Century Music
Introduction to Human Nutrition
Families Across the Lifespan
AND, I've planned my classes so I can go to the gym on MWF, and get a good walk around campus on TR (R means Thursday)
