    fluffy562 got a reaction from quana711 in 5 months and I hit goal!   
    Had surgery August 23 2017. Never thought I would of hit goal so fast. I mentally prepared for at least a year. I know that 70 pounds might not be much to some, but I too struggle and am an emotional eater. its been a whirlwind of fun and crazy emotions. I have decided to just tell people how I lost it, cause it has become so apparent and happened quickly and people were concerned I was sick. So far everyone has been positive ( at least to my face) and Its such a great feeling. I have been diligent on keeping to my diet. Mostly Protein, No sugar or Carbs. I take my supplements daily but struggle to remember the last Calcium of the night. Ive recently had my blood work done. waiting to hear. Hopefully everything is normal. ( keep fingers crossed) But I can say I haven't exercised at all! EEEK. it's been a mental thing. I HATE working out and I know that it needs to happen. my muscle mass is suffering and my skin is not pretty. i'm trying to jump start it. the weather hasn't helped. cold and raining and I'm freezing ( no body fat). I'm not perfect... I have had sips of soda here and there. I ate a couple chips on Super Bowl. I'm human and my problems aren't solved. I take it day by day and miss so many foods. This is all a learning curve and I'm happy to ride this journey.

    fluffy562 got a reaction from diabladepaz in My Journey 8 weeks   
    Today has hit 8 weeks for me and I wanted to share my journey. I can't believe that time has flown but in the beginning, it felt like eternity. My surgery itself was pretty smooth. Not much pain just mostly discomfort because of the incisions. My first four weeks were definitely a challenge mentally. 2 weeks of puree probably was the hardest. That and my Water intake. But when I hit that 4 week mark and I was given the green light from the doctor that I was on my own, it felt liberating in a way. I didn't feel so restricted and I became mentally more conscious about what I put in my mouth and I focused on Protein and water. My strength and mentality changed.
    I don't own a scale. Mentally it has always been depressing for me and I decided NOT to get one. I didn't want to let the numbers define my journey. Being that I have been on all kinds of diets and my weight has always YO-yo'd, I have a closet full of jeans in all different size ranges. I organized them by sizes in different slots and will let that tell me where I am at.
    At last weeks doctors visit ( 7 weeks) I was down 30 pounds. I couldn't be more proud!! I feel so good and full of energy. This probably has been one of the best decisions I have made to do this surgery. I haven't started exercising yet , I do walk my dogs 2x a day for about 20 mins each time and have since a week out from my surgery. I know that I need to get started. At least walking long periods. I make sure all meals are protein based and if I have room, I will eat a bite of veggies. I cook a lot at home for my family and make sure its in the diet and on the days it's not. I usually have left overs. I always have a protein bar/snack in my car and water at all times. My meals consist of about 3 oz of protein and usually can't eat much past that. I have about 4- 5 meals like this a day. Every morning I have collagen protein in my coffee so I know I start the day with 22 g of protein and then usually go from there. If by the end of the day I haven't hit my goal, I end it with a Premier Protein shake.
    For those of you that are just starting out, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I used to read all the posts on here daily and just kept saying to myself will this ever get easier and YES, it does. I've excepted my new lifestyle and hope that my journey continues to be as smooth as it has since week 4. I'm sure I will hit bumps here and there and I know it's always going to be mentally challenging when food has always been comfort for me. But I can say today I feel strong and I just take it day by day.
