Been sick with a sore throat,cough, stuffy head.  It wasn't COVID. after 3-4 days, am finally feeling a lot better. My eating hasn't been the best in the world as my husband and son brought home fast food.So, as off in the morning, it's back to cooking and eating like i'm supposed to

Weighed this morning and am down to 298.1 pounds.  I'll take it. My short term goal is to get back too 233 #, Which was my lowest post-op weight. Which I've only gotten 65.1 more pounds to go.  It may take me  several more months to get it off but, get it off I will.


Doing it again

Dec 05, 2021

How does the old song go...."I'm back in the saddle again...".  You'd think, after 14 years, I;d have the hang of things, at least as fr as WLS is concerened. But, no. I have to be hard headed and not pay anyone or thing any attention. And let old habits creep back in. I haven't weighed myself at home in awhile. But, was at my primary Dr back on 11/18/2021. I had lost down to 300ish pounds. I knew I had been over 300 pounds, 310 to be exact, at the end of October first of Novemebr. I've been eating more, and eating things I shouldn't.  Drinking Coke Zero and Beer, instead of water. Loading up on carbs. I haven't said anything to Don just yet but, I'm going to see about just cutting back on the amount I eat, eating protein first, then veggies and little carb.  In other words, eat how we're suppose to eat. 

I've got 67 pounds to lose to get to my lowest post surgery weight. I refuse to be a failure. It can be done. And as for Don, he's just gonna have to make -up his own mind, to get back on track. If he wants it bad enough, he'll do it

I'm back!!!  Again!! If ther is one thing that I have learned over the last 8 years is this: Can't nobody do this for me. I have to lose the weight, get my life back on track. And stop letting people mess with my head!! My weight had gotten up between 290 and 295. I am now down to 271.2 and re-learning, My husband is thinking about having WLS. So, I better get it in gear, if I want to help him

Here I am again.  I've gained roughly 47 pounds since I was last here.  How could I have let myself do this?!?!?  Enough is enough!! Lord, please help me.  You haven't let me come this far to fail.  Thank you for the success and slip ups I have along this journey. And thank you for the future success and slips.

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted here.  I had gained up to 267.  Not good at all.  Thankfully and not so thank full, Don has had to go on a lifestyle change as well, due to some medical problems.  The doctor has placed him on th New Atkins for a New You diet.  In the last three weeks I have gone from 267 to 255.  The weight is starting to come off.  Thinking this is what I/we needed.  Starting to feel a little better.  More to come later.

 Down to 244.2 as of this morning.  It's getting hard not to "snack" all day.  Will have to replace that habit with something else.

Weighed yesterday morning and this morning.  Both times I weighed 245.0.  Not bad Only 25 more pounds to get to 225.  I have given myself until November 30th.  With God in control, I will, or should say God and myself can and will do this.
