1 year out

Oct 20, 2009

My 1 year surgiversary passed on Oct 14th.  So much has changed for me in the past year.  The main thing being that I'm down 201 lbs!  I just went for my one year labs this morning so when I get the results, I'll have more to write about. 

The past few months, I've been slipping with my water intake as well as getting too lax when it comes to carbs.  Tsk tsk.  It shows in the scale. When I weighed today for the first time in a month, I was only down 2 lbs.  In many ways, it is a wake up call.  The honeymoon is over...time to start being more vigilent about what goes into my mouth and get back to my losing ways.

One major change I plan on making is actually...exercising.  Up to this point, I haven't been.  I am definitely more active but haven't exercised a bit since my physical therapy stopped back in early August.  (Twas to get back from being deconditioned from being in the hospital so long.)  Late last week I ordered resistance bands and a stationary bike.  While it may not be much, as a former 600 pounder, this is more exercise than I could have dreamed of a year ago.  I hope it gets me moving in the right direction.
