I have been a total slacker with this blog. Too many reasons to list, but none of them really matter. LOL So here I am back in the saddle, so to speak.
I am 6 weeks out today. WOW! it has been an amazing ride! I have lost 38 lbs..I think..I am NOT obsessed with weighing myself 50 times a day. I may even skip a few days..weird! I am one of those women who will lose 2 weeks of the month and nothing for the other 2. Ok..now that I know that I am ok with it. I was 234-236 for all of the Christmas holidays. Was waiting for my period to start(a bit late) and WHAM..5 lbs down in a couple of days. HELLO..that was great! It wont be long before I I weigh less than my husband. I think he is a bit miffed too, he has been swiping my Premier Protein shakes. I asked him last night, "dude, why you drinkin' my shakes?" he got all puffed up and said "you think you're the only one who needs protein?' HAHAHA! I laughed, and said "ok..maybe try NOT eating a whole meal before you have a whole protein meal in that shake"
He has been quite grouchy with me lately and frankly I am losing patience. Just so you know this is not related to my surgery. He gets like this every holiday season. Not quite sure why, weather, stress or money..who knows?! I know he will cool out in a bit, but GRRR..LOL
I survived the holidays, didn't deprive myself too badly either. I had chocolate *gasp* and cookies too! I even had a bit of a pancake. OMG!..LOL I even told my parents the truth about my surgery. My mom stressed about it a bit, my dad knew better than to say anything to me. I think he was secretly happy I did this and DIDN'T tell my mom. He would have had to deal with her incessant questions..LOL My parents visited for 10 days and by the time they left my mom was more comfortable with my VSG and the amount of food I can eat. They noticed my weight loss right away and by the time they see me this summer they are gonna freak out. I am SURE I will get the "you should stop now, eat more" reaction. Oh well..can't please everyone and I didn't do it to please them anyways. I did this to be healthier so we can have more time together. I mean it's gotta be pretty bad when you 75yr old mother exhausts your 36yr old self!!
I am finally back to cleaning my kitchen and doing the laundry! YAY! Today I have already done 2 loads and will hopefully will vacuum the carpets, sweep the floor and wash it too. WHOOHOO! I also can't wait til I can start to work out. At the end of the month we get a profit sharing cheque from my hubbies employer. We will be using some of that to buy a used home gym. I am NOT a gym person! This is REALLY FUNNY...cuz I met my husband at the gym. I worked in a gym for 4 yrs..LOL with a free membership, and personal trainers as friends. I still got PHAT!..LMAO! Anyways, where we live now, it is not a smart move to join a gym, drive half an hour to work out, get a sitter..blah blah blah..it's not worth the added stress. So having a gym in our home is the BEST method for all of us. I have space for it and I have never failed to use the equipment I have had available to me. Except when I ruined my knee and couldn't use the bike, so we need a treadmill!
So getting my gym set up soon is perfect timing. I have pretty much recouped from the tired part of surgery. I was right to give myself 6 weeks, like post partum. I am glad for people who bounce back quicker, but I think this is the perfect pace for me and my family. We need time to get used to new things..LOL
Feeding the family has been somewhat of a chore. UGH! I have been liking just using the crock pot and cooking chickens. Also loving the meat loaf..YUM! I think today will be egg salad (sandwiches for them) So I better boil a dozen eggs..LOL There may even be some left over for tomorrow's breakkie! I can only hope.
Well my cute lil baby is sleeping, so I am going to get some work done. Poor girl got the BAD stomach flu last week and is still so weak and clingy. I LOVE HER!!
