Good morning menu peeps. Last night I had a session with my trainer at the gym which went very well, I can tell it's working since I feel it this morning. Yesterday was a crazy workday so hopefully today is a bit more relaxed. No plans tonight so I'l

Good morning foodies. Another beautiful weekend behind us and now it's back to the grind. Last night I got out for a nice walk after work and tonight I'm back to the gym for training session 3. This week should be fun with hour long sessions Tues,Wed

Happy new week everyone.

The weekend turned out nicer weather wise than expected, so I was outside for most of it just doing odds and ends in the yard. My friend and I enjoyed an evening out and the rest of the weekend was spent with my kids

It's Friday again... yippee!

I met with the fitness adviser at a local gym last night and told her my story and that I was looking to kick up the weight loss before my 1 yr surgery date so that I might be able to avoid a 2nd surgery which would

Happy Friday gang! Had a great walk last night and I'm anxious to keep adding distance each week. MY BFF and I are heading out tonight but hopefully I can convince her to squeeze a walk in with me. No big plans for the weekend but if it's sunny out I i

Good day everyone! Managed to get my walk in last night before it rained and this year I might even manage to get a tan since I'm outside everyday. Today looks rainy so it might end up being a stationary cycle and resistance band session indoors.

Happy Friday fabulous foodies. Well another crazy day in the office yesterday but today is a bit less hectic probably due to the rain. I don't have anything excited planned for the weekend except I do have to get some housework done. I have a celebr

Well hello all you supportive peep!

I had surgery on Nov 26th at St.Mikes - ended up with VSG which is what they anticipated. I honestly can't believe how great I felt even in the couple days after surgery while staying in the hospital. I wa

Happy Halloween Everyone

Today is my 3rd day (of 28 total) for Optifast. I don't mind the taste at all but the first day I felt soooo bloated and didn't think I was going to get all 4 shakes in but I did.

I spaced them out a

Hey all

They called yesterday and my surgery date is set for November 26!

That is fine by me because that will mean Optifast starts Oct 29th. No Halloween candy unless they make a caramel corn flavored SF syrup

Pre-op class is Aug 20th but that's all I know for now.
