    Well, it has been a while since i posted a status update.. So long, I forgot how to do it LOL.. Well i just surpassed the 7 week mark. I am overall feeling great. Learning how to eat is ongoing. I am learning to take time between bites so i am not overly full by bite 3. I am down almost 50 pounds total. The scale stalled again but only for a few days. It was just this morning it moved a smidge, so hopefully i will be down 50 pounds by new year  Or at least by 2 months on Jan 8th. I am getting ready to join a gym.. I will go next week and see if i like the LA Fitness near the dance studio i go to. I would really like a personal trainer but will see what happens. I am excited for 2019 and all it has to offer and all that i can offer it! I have a family reunion coming up in Connecticut in June, and i have not told any of them i had the surgery. I also do not post pics on my facebook on purpose these days. I want next summer to be a super surprise to everybody there!  My main focus is to learn how to eat so that i can consume more each meal. My other main focus needs to be tracking calories. I am good at tracking water and somewhat protein, but not to the T.. That is going to be my biggest obstacle but i hope to have a handle on it by Feb1st is my goal time frame.

    Well today is a New Year and a New Me! I had a goal to lose 50 pounds by the end of the year and i woke up this morning at 51 pounds lost even! I am super excited. I am almost 8 weeks post op and will be 2 months post op in 7 days. I am excited to start 2019 at 252.6. I started this journey with a high weight of 340. When I decided this go around to get the surgery done, I was at 303.6 and day of surgery 284.2. Today just over 7 weeks later I am at 252.6. Over 30 pounds from the date of Surgery and 51 since i started the Pre Op diet. I am excited to see where 2019 is going to take me and where i end out the year! 2019 is my year, and this is the very first time in my 49 years of life that i can say something is mine and I am working on me for the new year!

    Well, Today is 3 weeks post op. I am down 38.4, and just about 20 since surgery. I have one more week of puree. The Dr. said i could move to soft, if i have mastered puree after a week, and then i could go back to dance once i master soft after a week. Yep! Not happening. After a week of puree, i am having a hard time getting everything in. Either i drink my protein shake too fast and it sits in my throat. Or i lose track of time and by the end of the night have too much liquid to still drink. I definitely have not mastered Puree. One more week and i should be ok with moving on to soft foods. 
    I am excited about how much weight i have lost so far. I really want to join a gym, but have a treadmill at home and take ballroom classes a few days a week. I am going to wait on the gym thing until i go back to classes and see how much time i will have to make it to the gym. The dance classes are actually exercise, but if i dont walk out of there sweating, then i will have to add the gym in so i can get in a great workout. I would also like to work with weights and do not have those at home, so it may be the  gym, and treadmill on the days i do not have classes as the closest gym is over by the dance studio.. some 40 min away( Thanks to Orlando traffic) or 15 miles LOL. 
     
    Anyways.. One more week of this stage and next Thursday i will be officially at one month Post op and will take a one month post op Pic so i can monitor progress.

    5 days Post op Update:
    Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
