All Done With "The Pill"

I was going to post yesterday but just never got around to it! I took the last pill yesterday! What a day! I'm so glad I don't have to take those gallbladder pills again! Now to find a new multiple-vitamen because taking those flinstones twice a day are just terrible! I don't know how kids eat them! Anyways, have to work tomorrow so I'm turning in early tonight! Will try and post my weigh in Wednesday!

Down 3.2lbs this week

Well, since last Saturday I've droppend another 3.2lbs! That takes me to 192.3, only 42.3lbs to goal! If I continue losing 3lbs/week I should be at my goal within the next 14 weeks! Wow, that means if I lose 3lbs a week I can be 150 by September 22. How awesome if I hit goal by then. Who knows if it will happen and if it doesn't thats OK, I'm just a numbers person! Anyways, very excited about my loss this week! Will update when I weigh in Wednesday! Going out to eat for Father's day tomorrow. I hate going out because I never know what to order. At least I can always fall back on a salad! Gotta go fold sheets, will post Wednesday!

Doctor Appointment Today

Well, I had my 6 month doctor's appointment today. The doctor was very pleased with my progress so far. He told me as long as I follow the "3 Golden Rules" I will be successful. After reading so many blogs his rules made me laugh because I read what everyone eats/drinks and it's amazing how different doctors have different rules!
My Doctor's 3 Golden Rules:

1. Eat only 3 times a day absolutely NO snacking in between meals
2. Do NOT drink your calories
3. Portion control, no more than 4oz per meal

Luckily I pretty much abide by all of them with the exception of snacking to take my stupid gallbladder pill, which will be all gone in about 10 days!

Just thought I'd share the rules with everyone.

I asked about calcium supplements and he basically said it wasn't necessary but if it would give me peace of mind, I could take them. He said the Viactin (I think that's what they're called) the chocolate chews was OK. I figure get calcium and a chocolate fix all in one!

Will check in Saturday with my weight!

Weigh In Day

Well, I got on the scale this morning and it read 195.5....that's 2.someting pounds gone from the 30th. Only 45.5lbs to go to get to my happy goal! My legs are killing me from working out yesterday. Not sure if it was the running or the weights but OMG they hurt! Anyways, very excited that the numbers are slowly going down. Hopefully I'll be to my happy goal by my 1 year anniversary! I'll update Tuesday and put new pictures, as it'll be my 6 month anniversary. Hard to believe it's already been 6 months. I never expected the time and pounds to go by so quick! Officially down 111.5lbs since pre-op appointment on the 6th of December where I weighed in at 307lbs.

Home Sweet Home

As much fun as vacation always is, it is always nice to get back home and back into a routine! I'm happy to report that I did not gain one pound while on vacation. I weighed in this morning at 197.7. Still only 47.7 away from my happy goal! I swam a few days but did not work out while we were gone and I didn't eat the best either. You can go read my eating and exercising tracking blog if you're interested in what all I had while vacationing! Steven leaves tomorrow so I'll get back on track with exercising and eating. Anyways, nothing new to report on this end. I am going to return several things I bought for our trip that I didn't wear. Luckily I left the tags on just in case. I think I have one pair of shorts, one pair of capris, a swim suite and 2 tops. Probably about $85 in stuff, so I'm so happy that I kept the receipts and left the tags on until I wore things! Just think it's silly to keep them when hopefully by next month they won't fit! My 6 month anniversary is coming up next Tuesday, so I'll do measurements, weigh-in, and picture then! Will post again soon!
