I guess I'll get us started today! My weight is all over the place at the moment, but I was able to wear (and buy) an amazing bodice in an amazing size yesterday, so I'm not too concerned right now. Weighing the day after going to the Ren Faire does not give a good number :)
Next goal: 145 which is "normal" BMI. So close and yet so far.
How about you, weekly weigher?

Looking great in an "amazing size" is such a wonderful NSV. I think it's just as important as any number. I tried on some clothes from the back of my closet this week that I fully expected not to fit, and what do you know? They fit and fit well. Craziness.
I'm having a run of decent weight loss. The days of rapid loss are behind me. So seeing two lbs for the week is sweet!

I am 10 days post op and feeling so much better than last week. I am still navigating my new tool, I have started introducing purees, it is so nice to have savoury food after the sweet protein shakes.
I hope everyone has s fabulous week.

thanks for kicking us off Gwen!
im back from our weekend away. And the scale is much kinder than I was expecting, considering. It's funny how your perspective can change. I consider the apple, corn on the cob and popcorn I had over the weekend to be super indulgent. But seriously, my carbs still never broke 50.
im going to try and really buckle down this week. I'm so close to 200 pounds lost, and my one year surgiversary is on the 8th!
Goals: 178 (200 pounds lost)
hope everyone has a great week!

Hello weekly weighers
I've been MIA from these boards for awhile now... life has really piled on over the past few months, some good, some bad but I'm surviving. My weight loss has slowed significantly over the past month and I'm 100% ok with that, in fact I've been getting a lot of concerned comments from my family and I agree with some of their concerns. Yesterday I weighed in at 174.1 which officially puts me out of the obese category and into overweight for probably the first time in my life. I'm a regular at Value Village and I my closet is now full of medium and large size clothes (wtf!?!) a long way from the 5x I was in at this time last year. I've been asking my bf to point out women I look similar to just to try to wrap my brain around it all.... not a task he's thrilled about lol but it's helpful to have that little bit of added perspective.
So I keep plugging away...I've been by no means perfect and I've been reminded a few times when I tried to "be normal" or push the rules.
Goals: I've realized that the daily menu thing is too much for me right now but I have to commit to these weekly weigh ins until I have more time again.
Hmmm... I don't have any scale goals at the moment. Reaching 175 seemed like such a far off dream and now that I'm here I just can't fathom what comes next. The reality is that reaching a normal BMI of 145 kinda scares me. I don't think it would look good on me at all but now that the losses are happening slower maybe my body will balance out a little and I'll get closer to "normal" in a healthy way. Overwhelming to say the least....
Have a great week everyone!!

I had RNY on Friday. :)
Goal: not scale related yet; at this point, it's to continue to navigate the new eating, get through liquid stage, keep upping my protein until I'm getting 60-80g, and to heal.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.
