Three Months Post Op and All is Good
Monday, December 08, 2008      7 comments

No weight change for me in the last few days. Today is the three month anniversary of my surgery. I am down a total of 52.5 pounds since the day of surgery. I am down 76 pounds since the end of July when I started the pre-op diet. Things are goi... Read more
Another night of fitness
Wednesday, December 03, 2008      4 comments

I had a good time at the gym last night. I didn't do as well as I did last week but I did the best I felt I could. The cold is playing havoc with the ole knees. I lasted only ten mins on the treadmill (vs 15 last week). I did 13 mins (two more t... Read more

I had an AMAZING holiday! The hubby and I spent it with my sister and her family, for the most part. We enjoyed a fantastic "dinner" prepared by my sister who took into account that there are things I just cannot eat and also that the hubby is a... Read more

My First Visit to the Gym
Saturday, November 22, 2008      7 comments

Okay ... So I walk into the gym and there were quite a few people there. Lynda told me they are never busy but today they were. I put my things in the locker room and came out. Lynda was on a treadmill so I figured what the heck! > ... Read more
Off to the gym
Saturday, November 22, 2008      3 comments

I just wanted to say good morning before I head off to the gym. Yes, I am going to the gym today. Lynda (a gal from my water aerobics class) invited me to be her guest so I'm going. I have on a pair of 5X capri pants cinched up at the waist with... Read more
Plans for Exercise
Tuesday, November 18, 2008      2 comments

The weight is still coming off. I'm now down to 344 today and am beginning to think I may make my 20 pound goal this month which right now means I need to lose about 9 more pounds before month's end. I think I can do this, especially since I'm g... Read more
Tracking is working
Monday, November 10, 2008      5 comments

Tracking my protein has been a great way to get me back on track. Before last week I was just eating and hoping I was getting what I needed. After a couple days, I realized I wasn't getting the protein I should have been and started to diligentl... Read more
Change in center of gravity ...
Saturday, November 08, 2008      3 comments

Talk about a change in my center of gravity due to losing weight ... well it has changed but no one has really talked about it. Following is one of the ways I know, however, this was probably not due to the gravity except that everything must fa... Read more
The Scale has Moved
Tuesday, November 04, 2008      3 comments

FINALLY, the scale moved today! In tracking since Sunday, I found I wasn't getting at least the protein I need. I'm supposed to be getting 70-90 grams post op. Once I adjusted that, the weight did come down 1.5 lbs overnight. Woo hoo! Now I'm ju... Read more
Water Aerobics
Friday, October 31, 2008      2 comments

I've gone to two water aerobics classes now and enjoyed both of them so much. I have two different instructors and they each work us so differently. I LOVE that! I've been able to keep up and even push myself to jog faster in the water. It's bee... Read more
Victories are MINE!
Monday, October 27, 2008      5 comments

It's back to water aerobics for me tonight. I don't want to go cuz I know the water is going to be COLD. Add to that the dropping temps here in northern IL and it spells doom. The hubby will make me go though, so no worries. I had a good no... Read more
Primary Doctor Appointment
Friday, October 24, 2008      6 comments

I went to my primary doc today. The nurse was amazed at how much weight I've lost. She asked the doctor if I had my surgery already and he said that I had. She said she could really see the weight loss. That was encouraging! The doc told me that... Read more
Better Day Today
Monday, October 20, 2008      2 comments

Today was a much better day. The dark cloud that surrounded me yesterday seems to have moved on (though it's pouring rain here right now). I honestly think I just get into funks. I did quite well with walking at the store. I did not go to t... Read more
Feeling Lost
Sunday, October 19, 2008      3 comments

For quite a while now, like over a year, I have bad days. Days where no matter what, the sun does not shine in my world. They are dark and desolate and I feel so alone. Sounds kind of silly saying that here, where I know I'm NEVER alone. I have ... Read more
