    Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

    After a week of not having a computer, I'm sort of back up and running. They were able to salvage the info off my hard drive and transferred it to my husband's ancient laptop. I don't know how long it will last, but at least I have something to work with for now. Damn I hate being broke all the time.
    I'm 8 days away from surgery, and the pre-op liquid diet is going sort of sideways. It's not the diet itself, but rather my hormone induced (read: intense pms) hunger and water retention. I'm constantly hungry, starving really and it feels like if someone were to prick my fingers, they would sprout fountains. 
    I've been hitting my 12000 steps per day most days, and getting close others (only missed on 2 days). I'm hopeful that I'll manage to lose the 3 pounds hanging over my head.

    👉🏼 One. Hundred. Pounds. Lost. !!!
    I was 235 lbs on Oct 10th, 2018.  Six and a half months later, I have shed the equivalent of my 13 year old daughter. 
    That's just CRAZY 😮!!!

    Yay me!  Today, I am officially no longer overweight (at least according to BMI scales).  I'm "normal" again! 😎

    Well, I didn't mean to be away for that long... Went into a bit of a funk due to some stuff going on that's not WLS related and it made me not really want to be communicative.
    But I'm feeling a bit better now and the countdown is a lot smaller than it was. 16 days and counting. Day after tomorrow I start phase 2 of my pre-op diet... 5-6 glucerna shakes and 200 calories veggies (no more fruit, no more 500 cal dinner). Hopefully that will get the scale moving again as I've been bouncing within a 3lb range for the past couple of weeks. 
    Did make a silly mistake. I donated almost all of my long sleeved t-shirts thinking that I wouldn't need them again until next fall and they'd all need to be replaced anyway. Then we got a spring snow storm and cold snap. 
    Need to refocus on my activity levels, get moving again. The last few days I've been a slug.

    Had a nice weekend with the family, but didn't get much accomplished. And on top of that I managed to gain a pound and a half over the weekend. Boo. I know that it is most likely water weight as AF is imminent, but it's still frustrating. Also wondering if the Gatorade Zero I had yesterday might be a contributing factor. 
    Today is a new day, and I've already walked 3km. Going to shoot for 3 more mini walks today. Need to up my activity. I've set a target of being at 237lb (or lower) on surgery day. That's the lowest I've been in the last 20 years.  
    And I'm going to take something for this wretched constipation.
