That sugar is a demon! Good for you, kicking it to the curb!

Mine has definitely become thinner. In my case, I'm quite sure it's surgery related. Thank goodness I started with very thick hair, or I'd be in trouble! On the plus side it now takes no time at all to wash, dry, and style, whereas before it literally would take hours. It's a whole new world in so many ways!

Your dedication to your health and weight maintenance is so admirable, Karen! May I ask how tall you are?

I love that photo of the sunrise through the trees, and Lily, of course, is a doll!

2 days back off sugar.

Eating my normal stuff.

I'm glad I have a lab draw next week. I can feel the iron tanking. I wish that I absorbed it by mouth or patch.

Perfect weather.

Hey don't rush while the good drugs are going.

Immediate post op is about deep breaths,walking in the hallway, and sipping fluid.

Good luck.

I started out as a 3x men's (4 x in womans) 356 day of surgery 10/15/2002 and I now can wear kids clothes cause the smallest of the adult clothes are in some cases 1 to 2 sizes too large so I'll look in the kids dept w/out any shame. At Walfart I'll look at the clearance rack never know what I'll find for cheap ?.....

Happy happy joy joy!!!!

Morning weekenders! I've been MIA- you know, life and stuff. This weekend I've little to nothing going on though. On Thursday I went to a wls reunion that my surgeon's office held. It was nice, they had great food, and I learned more about my surgeon's background- the practice itself etc. it was nice to talk with everyone- but man I felt like one of the youngest people there. Most are retired. Otherwise I'm still working at all this. My weight was uncomfortably high, so I've got my act together eating wise and have dropped 3#'s- I want to lose at least 6 more to get back to my comfort zone. Exercise is still on point. I did a 10 mile race in the rain 2 weeks ago- it was miserable- but I did it.

my 4 year surgiversary was a few weeks back. I had/have no words of wisdom. It's work. Has been, will be.... be in it for the long haul.

218 today, 4 years out, 6.5 mile run this AM

m1: fairlife smart shake, boiled egg and cheese stick

m2: Greek yogurt, berries and protein bar

m3: crab cakes

Good morning, everybody. I have already been to two different Target's with Marilyn as she searches out the Vineyard Vines Target collection that is being released today. I think that she got everything that she wanted, so I am free for the rest of the day. Mainly gym, yard work and a haircut for me.

My hair is starting to thin, I think. But I can't tell how much is surgery vs. just aging.

Other than that I will probably watch the race this afternoon. I would love a nap but they never seem to happen.

74 Burpees, still have 30 left to go.

Breakfast: omlette

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Steak

Snack: Light and Fit

Dinner TBD.

Have a great weekend, all.
