My Blog Entry, STARDATE: 67193

Ok, So I’m a bit too much into Star Trek to that I will always say ‘Guilty as Charged!’ LOL!....

But seriously, Today was a good day if you are a Chicago Sports Fan... White Sox Won, while that team on the North Side raised the ‘L’ Flag (Just a Friendly ‘White Sox’ fan jab to all ‘Cubs’ fans out there. No harm, just a little friendly Crosstown fun), DA BEARS won making them 3 – 0 and The Packers lost making them 1 – 2. (That I mean! LOL!) so you can see that today was a very good day for our sports teams.

As for me personally, I guess there wasn’t much going on over the week. I went to Comisky Park (Sox Park) this week and it made me realize what I don’t miss working at the ball park. Walking the entire park 3 or 4 times over. Granted I didn’t do as much moving around as I would if I was working, but it was a nice getaway and change of pace none the less. Plus with me losing 155 Pounds since I was there last it still was a bit easier moving around and such around the park as I remembered. Plus I was stuck taking Public Transportation to the park and since they are working on the ‘Red Line’ and had the 35th Street stop closed, there was extra few blocks to walk to the ‘Green Line’. But please don’t take this as if I’m complaining about anything, like I said all and all it was still easier to walk around the park than I remembered. I think it was more that I was a bit unprepared of what I was in for because I did honestly forget that the ‘Red Line’ was being worked on and such. I did get a pretty decent seat. Right now the first base line, 3 rows away from the field. A lot of balls were hit into my direction, just not anywhere near my ‘Area of Play’ (sorta speak).

At weigh in Sunday Morning my stats were....

Weight Lost for the Week: –4.2 Pounds or –1.25%
Weight Lost Since Last Clinic Visit (8/27/2013): –9.6 Pounds or –2.81%
Weight Lost Since my Surgery (4/24/2013): –84.65 or –20.29%
Total Weight Lost Since my First Visit to The Weight Clinic (9/13/2012): -154.9 Pounds or -31.77%

What I have been in awe lately is that I have lost –150.7 in one whole year, that is an Average of –2.9 Pounds a week. Yes a very conceivable number but I’ll be honest if you would have told me a year ago that in a year I was going to lose 151 Pounds, I would have looked at you and said “Sure, I have 2 questions for you... What are you on? And why aren’t you sharing?”

In the end all I’m saying that don’t think it can’t be done, because yes even though I did have Gastric Bypass Surgery seven months into the journey, Believe it or not as I look over my weight chart that I do in Excel there wasn’t much change in how quick I was losing the weight. The two points where I lost the most weight was two weeks before surgery (when all you can do is a liquid diet) and about one month after surgery when you are still mostly on a liquid diet trying to get use to what your system will and won’t tolerate.

    wow we,
    I read your entire blog. You have been through it all. I will say this you are a strong person. It is very apparent how much wight you have lost from your profile pic to your current pic, you look so much healthier. Your ex, yikes! Your lucky to have dumped her. For me I'm losing weight old school, weight watchers and this site. I screwed around and messed my health up to the point weight loss surgery would be to risky. I went through the pre opt. Health testing and didn't pass. That was a hard one to wrap my head around. Any hoo keep up the good work and I'm sure there is a decent woman out there for you aim higher this time around😳
    Take good care!
