    October 2014 sleevers check in please!

    Friday was my 6 month (at 7 months? post op follow up visit. My BP was 110/57 HR was 76 Amy cholesterol 135 overall LDL 43 HDL 85 all other blood panels were in the normal range A1c was 4.1and my body fat is down to 20%! The Dr. was extatic about my results! He said that by far I am his most successful patient at the VA! My skin is healing well I have some loose skin but looks like it is still young and will probably not need to have any removed as it is not hanging and my muscle building will help for it to "go back to normal"! Another NSV is my energy level, my family and are are getting ready to move across country (for me to continue my education I was accepted to Colorado State University) and I have been loading the moving pods all weekend and have done most of the heavy-lifting myself. I am not tired or sore I worked all day both Saturday and yesterday and was like the energizer bunny, I just kept going and going.

    Man boobs?

    Push ups at different angles works well, bench press at different angles (incline30-40 degrees, flat and decline 30-40 degrees) both with barbell and bumbells. Cable crossovers high level and low. All focus on the chest. I figure if I fill the void left behind from the fat with muscle skin sag will be less. As others have said upper chest looks good, but the lower chest still needs work and is the hardest to target. You have to be at a funny angle to do bench work, but with the pushups you just need to put your feet up on a stair, stool, chair... to get the right angle. The P90X chest and back workout is awesome for learning new pushup variations.

    Kidney stones

    It probably is the extra protein. I have had one already too, they suck bad.

    moving.

    Talk to them before the move to see what you need to do. If you are having it done at the base hospital there might be things you can streamline.

    Confession

    Sweating in the gym is a badge of hard work paying off! I used to sweat all the time, my friends would joke saying " would sweat while eating Ice cream in a freezer" hahaha sad thing I I think they would have been right. Now I only sweat while being physically active, in the gym, working in the yard or around the house. Normally now if it is 70 or below I am wearing sweats bc I am cold all the time now!
