    Issues Getting in fluids and Protein
    I am so off on my protein its crazy,  I am supposed to drink 3 shakes a day and I can barely get in 1 1/2 shakes a day primarily because I can't stand the taste of the protein and artificial sweeteners.  I am also lacking in the calories.  I find myself sipping water and G2 all day and not really wanting to eat because I am not hungry.  Then when I do get hungry I take in a little soup or broth and that's it.

    60 pounds in six months. I'm back to the gym (not as consistently as I would like) and i figured out that too many carbs = exhaustion and brain fog. It is pretty nice to find clothes and have them look good on me.

    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.

    Heading into week 3
    Head Hunger and stalling
    Because I was more of a foodie than an emotional eater, I was hoping that the head hunger would be minimum.  But boy did it hit me like a ton of bricks this weekend.  I felt depressed and my first (and hopefully only) sense of regret.  I knew that having my surgery right before the Christmas holiday would be rough, but man this is really rough.  I didn't even realize how much my life with my friends and family revolved around food.  Every event I attended, everyone's home I visited, every gathering centred around food, and I hated that I could not partake.  And don't get me started on TV and advertisements everywhere you turn, It was like I was living in HELL.   My best girlfriends and I have an annual ladies sleepover in which we exchange gifts and catch up on what's going on in each other's lives, and it centred around food and alcohol, which I can not partake. so as they had their Nacho's and various other finger foods, I was there snacking at my yoghurt, or sipping on my protein shake.   I really felt like the odd man out.  And the worst part is I know I only want these things because I can't have them!   
    I also know that around week 3 most people stall. I am 2 weeks and 4 days out and yes I hit the dreaded stall.  I haven't lost any weight in 3 days and actually gained a few oz's over 2 days.  which I know is temporary, but still gives a small blow to the ego.  I am however losing inches, I can definitely tell by the way my clothes are beginning to fall off of me. a pair of pants I purchased 3 days before Christmas, was very loose in the waist when I attempted to wear them again yesterday.  I know I am not the only person going through this, but it's nice to be able to just let it out.

    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!

    Hello again,
    I have lost a total of 72 lbs.  Feeling pretty frustrated with myself because I have been at the same weight for about 6 weeks.  BUT considering it has been through the holidays and there has been a lot of celebrating ... I am cutting myself some slack. 😕  At least I have not gained! 😬
