  1. Down 60 pounds today! I was very happy to see the scale drop below the 100kg mark this morning - it's such a wonderful visual reminder that things are working (slowly but surely). Once I lose 10 more pounds I will be halfway to goal, which is almost unbelievable to me!

      Say what!?!? 60 already? Didn't you just have it done? Lol. Wow!!! Are you exercising? What types, if so? Doing any kind of specific diet for your lifestyle?

      Well, I lost just over 20 pounds during my 3-week pre-op (non-liquid) diet, and another 40 pounds since surgery. The only exercise I do is walk - I definitely get over 10,000 steps a day (closer to 15,000), but it seems that the scale really moves when I get over 20,000 steps a day. This Thursday will be my 3-month surgiversary, and I know I definitely need to start doing some weight training, which I hope to start this week. For now, I'll just use the weights I have at home, but as I get stronger I hope to go to a local pay-as-you-go gym once or twice a week (regular gyms are not a great option for me - the hours are absurd (they don't open till 10 a.m.) and very expensive (at least $150/month, when at best I could go twice a week).
