8 Months Out Update.

Jul 13, 2009

Life has been busy as usual. Soccer has ended, but baseball is another month or so yet.  Always on the move.
I finally got out on my new bike, and I really enjoyed it.  I think roller blades are next. I've always wanted to try it.
I'm also considering purchasing a WII Fit.  It seems all the rage, and everyone doing it seems to have lots of fun.

I've lost a total of 116 lbs, which is on target with my average 10 lbs a month I seem to be losing now.

I have no idea how many inches I've lost. I had my measurements taken at the gym 1 month before surgery, and I think maybe I'll have them redo them at 10 months.

My food hasn't been as strict as it should be, but my estimates are pretty accurate. When I do pull out my measuring cups and scale to verify, I'm pretty much right on target, and my pouch  is too. By that I mean that measured quantity fills me up. I don't feel the need for more.  So although I'm not always measuring, my pouch seems accurate. .... I do verify about every 10 days or so, just to be sure.

I tolerate most foods, and stay away from those I know bother me.  Bread is no longer my friend, but I have had the occasional grilled cheese or toasted tomato sandwich...... crust cut off.  I just have to be very careful. I never know which bite will bite me back so I take it very slow.

I'm still getting lots of comments about how good I look.  It can be rather embarrassing, but I try to stay positive and accept the compliment graciously.

Well, that's about all for now.
