    Six months post-op and 90 pounds lost! I'm so happy with the weight loss, but I still can't help wishing it was 100 pounds instead.  I still need to find time to do my measurements and take some photos though - I'm leaving for Hong Kong tomorrow morning, so am pretty busy cleaning and packing before I go.

    Sooo...I decided to keep a pair of brand new dress pants that I've never worn from the past two years (that I could also never wear due to them being way too small) for when I need a pair to wear. I decided to try them on this morning (for an important appointment this week) and they are now too big! Lol.

    So, I tried to save some money by working out at home and realize that I am not determined enough to do it.  I work out, but not nearly as much as I should be.  Doc wants me to do at least 3x a week, and I've been skimping.  My husband noticed too and asked me if I had thought to go back to the gym.  This is unlike me really.  I love to workout...just not at home, apparently.  I really did try though. So, back to the gym today.  I'll have to sign back up again.  That is my element of working out.  I'll take a monthly fee and stronger, better health, than trying to save that bit and slacking.

    Went to the movies with my hubby this morning. (We're taking advantage of a kid-less day) I did have some popcorn (no extra butter--never get that stuff anyway) and no, it wasn't the end of the world!! Lol. I enjoyed every little bite I had (obviously it wasn't much). I did not die. I did not gain a lb and I did not crave more either. It was good. 😁

    Had my sleeve on 5/15. I was probably a size smaller a week ago but didn't bother to check. I bought one size smaller in workout pants and decided to put them on. Happy to say, they slid on well. 😊

    Day 11 pre-op:
    Another busy day. My baby girl turned 4 today. Had her party today as well. Didn't want to do it on the weekend...way too busy at those kid pizza places. Anyway, forgot about water during the party, I'm parched. Will need to get better at that (being super busy and drinking water). I ate a salad with the most ridiculous amount of grilled chicken on it. I even questioned the oz. Hmm....? 
    Anyway, had appt with the surgeon yesterday and my post op directions. All is well. Labs were perfect. Took a mini test, he said I got a 100 and there was nothing to school me on. Nut went over post op directions. Main keys are:
    1) eat when you're hungry. 2) water, water, water  3) get protein in 
    no counting calories, etc  good! I have to learn to listen to my body, as I've always known that's the way for me. It's what I used to do at my healthy weight, so I know I can and will do it again. 
    Three more days of pre-op. The end is near to the beginning of another chapter.

    Last appt is next Wed.  The center won't schedule surgery until approval comes from insurance.  Booo!  Says it may take up to 10-15 business days.  Guess I'll be calling my insurance so often to make sure someone is doing his/her job.  Once received they schedule pretty fast...but if I have to have a pre-op of two weeks then it looks as if I have another two weeks after approval.  I'm guessimating mid May for my surgery; which would be just about 4 months from start.
