Under 230

Well, I got on the scale this morning and I'm down to 227, which takes me to a loss of 80lbs in 3 months and 19 days. WOW! I finally seriously went through my clothes today and tossed out 13..THIRTEEN... pairs of pants that fell off of me! It was such a reality check. I will never EVER go back to that again. I'm officially down to a size 22. The 24, 26, 28s are all GONE! I need to go through my tops now, although that's a differen story because the ladies are still just as big as they were before surgery! It felt good to have so many things that didn't fit, although now my closet looks empty! I have a whole 4 pairs of pants in there! LOL...anyways, worked out today! Did .60 on the elliptical in 15:30 and did 125 sit-ups and some upper body weights. I still don't "look forward to" working out but I dont' seem to dread it as much as I once did. Plus for once in my life I'm proud of myself for exercising. It makes me feel so good to know that I've done it. Sounds corny, but I feel happy about myself when I exercise! :)

Worked out Another 2 Days

Well, I worked out yesterday and today! Yesterday (Thurs) I did .60 on the elliptical in 15:30. That's the most I've done on it and it felt so good! In addition I did 125 sit-ups with the rolling thing and did some upper body weights to start strengthening my muscles! Today (Fri) I walked 2 miles. I was going to do more at my dads but we didn't get over there. Anyways, when I got on the scale last night with my clothes on I was at 229 but I seem to jump around a few pounds every day, so not sure how true that was! I'll weigh in tomorrow morning without clothes to see what my official weight is. Hopefully it'll be under the 230 mark. How nice will that be!

Took A Break Today

Well, after 5 days in a row I figured today I deserved a break! I had to work all day, so I figured today was a good day to not work out. I'll be back to the normal routine tomorrow! The scale is almost below 230. The last two weeks I've had very minimal loss. Kinda bummed about that, but I know it's a slow process.

4 Days Down

Well, so far I've worked out 4 days in a row! Yeah for me! Let's see yesterday (Sunday) I did 15 minutes (1/2 mile) on the elliptical and 125 sit-ups. This morning we walked to school (2 miles round trip) and I plan on walking again this afternoon for a total of 4 miles. It's so nice not to be out of breath from walking.

Another Day of Working Out

Well, two days in a row! I did 15 minutes on the elliptical (.54 miles) thought I was going to die! I also did 125 situps and just a little lifting with my arms just to get them warmed up for future workouts! I was worn out but it felt good!

Did 4 miles

Well, I decided last night I had to start working out! It is 1 mile to my son's school, so I asked him if he wanted to start walking to school. He was thrilled! So, I know it's Friday, but we started today! We walked to and from school, totaling 4 miles I walked! My feet are killing me! I'm glad I did it though! I just have to keep it up!

Had to Go Shopping

Well, I finally had to break down and buy some new pants. Mine were literally falling off of me and I looked like a complete slob. I bought a size 22! Yea, considering I was in a "tight" 28 at the time of surgery! Only a couple more sizes before I'm out of the 20's! I haven't gotten on the scale in the last few days, so I'm not sure what my weight is down to. I will have to check tomorrow morning and post! I'm starting to see a difference now, so that is a nice change!

3 Months Post-Op

Well, today is my 3 month anniversary! Hard to believe it's been that long. I go to the doctors on Wednesday. I'm hoping for some direction on protein. I know I'm not getting enough but I dont' know what to do to get more. I'm hoping maybe I can just take a pill or something. Anyways, after 3 months, I'm down to 237.3, which makes my total weight loss 69.7lbs. Hard to believe I've lost that much in such a short time. I'm hoping that maybe over the next 6 months I can drop another 70lbs.

Under 240

Well, I got on the scale this morning and I'm down to 239.6. I'M UNDER 240.....WOW! That made me so happy. Next Monday is my 3 month post-op anniversary. My appointment is on Wednesday the 14th. I'm hoping to be down 70lbs for that, so I have like 2.6lbs to go before then! Yea me! What a feeling watching those numbers slowly go down and down. My goal(150) and my realistic goal(175) are starting to seem more realistic now!

Trying on Some Clothes

Well, I figured I'd try on some shorts that were too tight last summer and out of 9 pairs (3 size 22 & the rest 24) 6 fit. The 22s were snug but probably within the next 6 weeks they'll fit! I wasn't going to do it, but figured what the heck and now I'm glad I did.

Down to 241.8

Well, the scale is still going down down down. Less than 100lbs to my goal weight or my realistic weight. What a good feeling. Just the stupid clothes. I can see it when I look at myself but the sizes are going down enough for me to feel like it's really really true! Anyways, like I always say, time time time!
