Saturday, February 06, 2016      4 comments

I am down 100 pounds since my surgery almost 8 months ago. What a feeling to realize that! It has been tough, and the mental game is getting harder, not easier, but I keep plugging along. So proud of myself--have to admit that! To celebrat... Read more

On Monday, after basically staying the same weight for two weeks, I promised myself I wouldn't weigh again til Sunday. The last six days I have walked like crazy and I have been eating correctly--even though my brain wants me to eat a lot ... Read more

So, i got to a "tipping point" where the weeks and months of slow and steady weight loss are now visible to most people. and I have received a gift to be redeemed in six months: a gift that I desperately want to keep losing at the rate I'v... Read more

I'm so grateful I keep a weekly chart of my weight and non scale victories. Most days I feel so discouraged, many weeks I get mad at the scale, but each month I've been steadily lighter than the month before. Eating better and moving more... Read more

Lost 0

Sunday, September 20, 2015      2 comments

Well, I officially lost zero for the week. I'd be even more disappointed but yesterday was the first day someone who didn't know my story noticed I looked better. So there's that. Still trusting the process but admitting out loud weeks lik... Read more

Faster Weight Loss

Saturday, September 05, 2015      5 comments

Well, last week the weight finally starting coming off. I've lost ten pounds in two weeks--doing what I've been doing for months now; I guess my body was just ready to let it go. I'm still not "hungry" but I have started missing eating/che... Read more

Haven't weighed in five days

Friday, July 31, 2015      2 comments

Determined to only weigh once a week. It's Friday and I've avoided the scale since Sunday. BUT it's still in my brain and I think about it a lot AND if it isn't down (and lets face it a few pounds or more down) on Sunday I'm going to be seriousl... Read more

When is a stall not a stall?

Sunday, July 26, 2015      2 comments

So, my doctor says I'm not stalled. And according to his scale, I have lost 4 pounds in two weeks. And my blood pressure was "ideal." Still wanting to lose faster but trusting the program. Got up and walked 45 minutes this morning! K... Read more

Still stalled

Saturday, July 18, 2015      3 comments

and worse...I found a google thread where people stalled and never really lost any significant weight after that. Just keep doing the works! Trying to not let my mind mess me up. On an exercise note, I am trying to get b... Read more

So, I've been basically stalled for a week now. It's hard not to let it mess with my mind, but it's so common I found it online as "week three stall". Went back to work this week--although I've lost 30 pounds since everyone saw me, I'm so ... Read more

I'm down ten percent from my all time highest. WOO HOO. That said, I still have a longggg way to go. Still. Yesterday I moved out some shirts that were blousey to begin with (I like lots of fabric!) and while still wearable, I have o... Read more

Streak! three days in a row meeting my fitbit goal---yesterday, again took two times on treadmill and grocery shopping. But my endurance is increasing every day so I'll be able to walk faster and longer soon enough. Walking works! And I LOVE wat... Read more

I grew up on spaghetti, chili, and things that came out of a box: chicken, pot pies, etc. I credit Chipotle for making me LOVE black beans years ago. Yesterday, I made a quick Balck Bean soup for the first time. Puree one can ... Read more

Crushed pills

crushed pills are disgusting! I haven't found a way to take them yet that is palatable. Right now what is working is chocolate protein shake. Ugh! Yesterday, I hit my first fit bit goal of steps! Woo Hoo! I was so proud of myself when I f... Read more

I had gastric vertical sleeve surgery two weeks ago. I've had a fairly standard recovery. I'm basically free of pain now, but I have no stamina. I haven't really cried or regretted it since the surgery but my doubts are if it will work. If I sho... Read more
