8 Weeks Today
Jan 11, 2011
Has it really been 2 months already? So hard to believe it is possible, it still seems like yesterday.
I am sticking to my plan of weighing just once a week - on my surgery day and today I am down 41 pounds from surgery weight. Do I wish it were more? Well sure but I will take a 5 pound weekly average loss and be happy about it. Still 28 pounds from that first goal of ONEderland. I cannot wait until my weight no longer starts with a 2!
I am feeling great. I am 8 weeks out and I am eating good, sleeping good, & pooping good. Not much else I can ask for at this point. I get my protein, fluids, & supplements in 5-6 days a week. At least one day over the weekend, time seems to get away from me and I usually fall a little short on one thing or another.
People are starting to notice and complement and that makes me feel good. However, I am also getting a regular comment from a co-worker about how tired and pale I look so I worry about that even though I know she has one of those caustic personalities that cloaks an insult with pretend concern but it still stings when I am feeling so good about my progress and success with foods. 8 weeks out and still not one occasion of foamies, nausea, or vomiting. Now there have been a few foods that by the second bite I know it is not for me and I push it away and put it on my "wait and see" list.
I am rocking my exercise the past few days. Sunday was an hour of dancing to an old Richard Simmons Sweatin' to the Oldies tapes, Monday was a zumba class and tonight I walked at 5k loop on the treadmill on an incline at a clip that is pretty quick for me. Since picking up my exercise, I sure sleep good at night.
On a down note, I have developed a "crush" on a guy in my motorcycle club and the past few weeks we had enjoyed several laughs and he has "managed" to always get a seat next to me. He has now become all gaga over the beautiful new rider who joined and I am back to being the invisible fat girl. I so cannot wait until I no longer qualify for that role.
