Things are good for me as well. I had my surgery March 17 and have lost a total of 76 lbs so far (that includes the 10 lost while on the liquid diet). I have 54 lbs to go before I reach my goal of 130. My mini goal was to be under 200 before I reached my 40th birthday. Well I definitely achieved that. My birthday was last week and I weighed 185 lbs! My weight loss is a little slow, but steady...around 2 lbs per week, but sometimes up to 3 if I'm being really super good (which I try to do all the time).
I have been tracking my food on daily plate. I didn't for the past week because I was on vacation and not near a computer. I also ate a few no-no things due to my bday and vacation. But I only had those few little things and then back on track. I actually feel good that I can have an occassional treat and then be able to stop!
I weigh myself daily. I know some people say that you shouldn't...and I do get depressed a bit when I dont' see the weight going down after a few days. But I feel it helps to keep me on track. If the weight were to go up, I could evaluate what I have been eating and see if there is anything I can change. So I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing.
I have been so much more comfortable this summer. I generally love the heat, even though I was usually uncomfortable and sweaty much of the time. But this summer has been awesome. I can be outside and in the heat more than before, my a/c is turned down in the house because I'm not as hot as before. The only bad thing is that I haven't been able to take care of my garden this year and it is so overgrown and yucky! I find that as soon as I start bending over and digging out weeds and stuff that I get super light headed and feel kind of sick. So while I have tried to do it a couple of times, I've had to quit. I also have to be careful when bending or crouching and then getting back up. My blood pressure is lower than it has ever been, but not below normal low. It runs about 110 / 70 give or take. So that is okay. so not sure about the light headedness, but if that is the only thing I have to worry about, then I'm good with that!
