164/165 weeks post op

Jan 30, 2012

Hi OH Friends,

Week 164 post op
Somehow my blog from last Monday vanished, I guess I may have not saved correctly. I'm going include both weeks in the post. Last Monday 1/23 I weighed myself and was so excited to have weighed in at 271. That's a total of 26 lbs since I got back on track. I stuck with my eating plan, no more than 20 carbs a day. I did slack a bit on my water so my goal for last week was to make sure I got at least 64 oz of water a day. I managed to do that. My excercise wasn't that great, I only worked out Monday and then again Thursday, so I definitely need to make sure I stick with it this week.
Week 165 post op
I weighed in yesterday at 271 again, I'm hoping this doesn't end up being a plataeu point for me. My goal this week is to stick with the low carb again. I'm going to try to do a couple days with around 10 carbs to see how that goes.
I have been drinking water like crazy, I tried this water recipe I found online, and its so refreshing. Its a gallon of water, 1 cucumber sliced, 1 lemon sliced and a few mint leafs, let it sit in the fridge overnight and the next day it's great. It's so refreshing. I'm going to make this again, I have heard of people experimenting with other vegetables/fruits but I'm going to stick with this one for now.
My goal is to work out at least 3 days, no less but more if I feel up to it. I worked out yesterday so I already have 1 day down. I know I can do, I just have to get motivated. It's hard for me to get motivated to workout but once I start working out and finish I feel great. 
I do plan on measuring again next weekend, that will be 1 month from when I measured last just to see my progress. I feel like I'm losing inches, my clothes seem to be fitting differently which is always good. Thanks for reading!
