Week 5 Post Op Report
What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!
I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!
I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!
I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!
I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.
I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!
I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.
I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!
I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!
I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

You got this sis! You totally do.
The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.
You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.
On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.
Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
@Krimsonbutterflies Checking in on you. How are you doing?
