169.9 this morning on the scale. FINALLY lost 100lbs.
HOLY CRAP. I can't believe that. I am so greatful for this surgery. It has totally changed my life. It is by far and away the greatest thing I have ever done for myself.

Initially, your weight loss is 90% surgery and 10% you. Over time, it'll be 90% you and 10% surgery. The surgery will be a "tool" for continuing weight loss or maintenance.

That came from an email that went out to the people in my local support group. I have hit the 10%. I am 20lbs. from goal and I will work for every ounce of that.
Here are some of my post op reflections...
1. If something makes you sick when you eat it, don't eat it. Don't try to eat it a few months later to see if it will work now. Your body is telling you something. Listen to it.
2. Exercise will never be fun, but you have to do it. You have to get your significantly smaller butt off the couch and do something. Doesn't matter what- just move. Every day.
3. You have to follow the rules. That means vitamins and protein EVERY DAY. Forever. If you don't do it- the scale will show it. I am a full on believer of this now.
7 months out and about 100lbs. Not bad- not bad at all. But I know I can do better. I know that I can be eating better. I know I can be exercising more.

I've been seriously missing in action lately. Well I've been updating my ticker (3lbs left to the century club! Hope to be there by Christmas!!) I have run into some issssssues lately. Which I guess is partly why I haven't been blogging.
So I've been in a serious rut lately. A food rut, protein rut, vitamin rut, exercise rut...all of it. It's been kind of a bad scene. I've been able to tolerate more and more carbs lately. And like a true addict, the more I eat of them, the more I want of them. Bread, and pasta...I haven't really tried rice again. That seems to make me the most ill after eating it so I'm not as tempted to eat that. I can't explain why I got off the protein. I was really doing well with it and then just stopped. I'm slowly getting back on that wagon. Same with my vitamins. Just bailed on them. So that is the next thing- just gotta pick up and start over again.
I have been going back to the gym after a long haitus. My co-worker and I have made a deal and we've been meeting to lift weights twice a week. I've been doing cardio on my own (sometimes...) also. So I feel ok with that.
All in all- I've just felt kinda down. My weight loss has slowed down a ton, which is fine due to all of the above. But I guess I'm just almost a little ashamed of all the nonsense I've been doing or not doing lately. Just didn't really want to blog about it or hang out on the boards lately.
BUT- I'm out of it, I think. I've turned the corner and just let go of all that and now I'm just focusing on getting myself back together.
