before and now!

Someone asked for a recent picture - the first is 1-1-11 at my daughter's wedding, 8 months before surgery, a week before I went to the orientation. The second is from this past Saturday, my younger daughter's 18th birthday 3-16-13

18 months today

I won't lie - seeing that +2 lbs this morning freaks me out. But I track everything and am completely honest about it so I know it is most likely fluids as I had alot of sodium this week.       SW 242 Height 4'11'' 6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6) Surgery date 8/8/11 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8) 7 months - 155.4 (-7) 8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 10 months - 139 (-4.4) 11 months - 132.6 (-6.4) 12 months - 126.8 (-5.8) 13 months - 121.4 (-5.4) Made goal!

17 months out today

I have been reflecting a lot recently about where I was a year ago, going through my leak and basically housebound. I am happy to report I enjoyed the holidays and even lost a little during them.

16 months post op - Merry Christmas!

Well the holidays are in full swing! So far, so good here! Still small trickle losses but most days I do get my calories in for maintenance. I am still trying to keep my walking up but darn the cold weather. I do a lot of trips to Walmart to wonder around for exercise. Have been taking advantage of some of the nice weather we have had as well. Have a great holiday, everyone! Be safe and enjoy your loved ones!   Start Weight 242 Height 4'11'' 6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6) Surgery date 8/8/11 weight 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8) 7 months - 155.4 (-7) 8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 10 months - 139 (-4.4) 11 months - 132.6 (-6.4) 12 months - 126.8 (-5.8) 13 months - 121.4 (-5.4) Made goal!

15 Months Post Op Today

I am not actively trying to lose anymore, I am fine if I do, sure would love to see 112.5 which would be smack dab in the middle of a normal BMI for me but I'm not trying to get there. Just working on maintenance and getting in my calories and such, in as healthy a way as possible. I made it through Halloween with minimal candy eating. I don't forbid myself anything these days and I think that helped. If I want candy, I will have it no matter the day - but I find knowing that, I don't want it at all. I am looking forward to continuing to maintain. I will log my food daily and weigh daily as well, to keep myself on track. For exercise, I walk as everything else I lose interest in eventually. Til next month!     SW 242 Height 4'11'' 6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6) Surgery date 8/8/11 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8) 7 months - 155.4 (-7) 8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 10 months - 139 (-4.4) 11 months - 132.6 (-6.4) 12 months - 126.8 (-5.8) 13 months - 121.4 (-5.4) Made goal!

14 Month Updated

I reached both of my mini goals this last month, weighing a normal BMI fully dressed as well as weighing in at 121 which is half of me.   No real info yet on the plastic surgeon consult - they have submtted to insurance and waiting to hear decision on that.   Still enjoying my Weight Watchers meeting and the accountability it gives me each week.   Started taking a mindful eating class through my program, it is kind of odd to go through it when at goal but I am learning a few things.   I didn't wear my black dress yet - too cold, it might have to wait til next summer.   SW 242 Height 4'11'' 6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6) Surgery date 8/8/11 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8) 7 months - 155.4 (-7) 8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 10 months - 139 (-4.4) 11 months - 132.6 (-6.4) 12 months - 126.8 (-5.8) 13 months - 121.4 (-5.4) Made goal!

13 Months Today - Lots Accomplished!

This last month I made my goal of 123.8 which put me in a normal BMI. I then made my goal of weighing that fully dressed My next mini goal is 121 which will be half of me. I want to get around 117 so I can be solidly in a normal BMI range. I am in no hurry for that.   I am loving the fall weather we are having and wearing jeans in a size 6!! Have never been this size in my life! I have a plastic surgery consult on September 11th. Most likely I won't have surgery for a while simply because working on paying off a credit card and my car before our big move to FL next year - would love to be debt free. But I want to know my options, costs, expectations, etc.   I wish I would have started blogging each month a long time ago so I could look back on the non scale things I accomlished each month. The journey really is about so much more than a number.   I went back to Weight Watchers meetings - I made lifetime with them in 2003 so now that I am back at (below) my lifetime weight, meetings are free. I like the extra support it gives me on a weekly basis. I attend my hospitals monthly support group also. Don't underestimate the support available to you - make use of all of it! It keeps you motivated and encouraged! I need all of that I can get!!   I bought myself my first little black dress a few weeks ago - I'll share the dressing room picture for now. Who knew that finding shoes would be the bigger challenge!   SW 242 Height 4'11'' 6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6) Surgery date 8/8/11 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8) 7 months - 155.4 (-7) 8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 10 months - 139 (-4.4) 11 months - 132.6 (-6.4) 12 months - 126.8 (-5.8) 13 months - 121.4 (-5.4) Made goal!

Happy Surgiversary To Me!

I'm one year today and just a few lbs from a normal BMI. I love my sleeve. It was a rough start with my complications but I would do it again in a heart beat. The picture is the start of my 6 month medically supervised weightloss, about 6 weeks before surgery then last Sunday.                   SW 242 Height 4'11'' 6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6) Surgery date 8/8/11 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8) 7 months - 155.4 (-7) 8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 10 months - 139 (-4.4) 11 months - 132.6 (-6.4) 12 months 126.8 (-5.8)

Monthly Weight Lost

I've been keeping track of my weight lost each month in my signature and it is getting too big, at 1 year I'll have to delete something so I have decided to go ahead and stop the monthly tracking there - I track on MFP and will maintain it here in a blog but not in my signature.   SW 242 Height 4'11''.......6 month Pre-op loss (-28.6).....Surgery date 8/8/11 213.4   1 month - 194.2 (- 19.2).......................................................7 months - 155.4 (-7) 2 months - 180 (- 14.2)........................................................8 months - 149.6 (-5.8) 3 months - 170.2 (- 9.8)......................................................9 months - 143.4 (-6.2) 4 months - 164.4 (- 5.8).....................................................10 months - 139 (-4.4) 5 months - 167.2 (+ 2.8) 6 months - 162.4 (-4.8)

Working On Working Out

I'm ready to start working out. I have done little bits of walking since being sleeved 8 months ago and that's about it. I currently struggle to get in 800 calories a day and I worry I don't get enough to sustain me through work outs. Excuse. I really want to walk my dogs - but I have 3 and can only walk one at a time...excuse, I know. Take each one for a short walk, right? I like riding my bike but not in the wind. Major excuse. My 24 hour gym is boring (is it supposed to be fun?). Excuse. HELP!! Encouragement and accountability needed, please apply within...
