Hey Jachut.. I have a favorite bra too and I wash clothes daily. 2 kids and a husband that loves to shower 2 times daily here in Sunny Florida. I know!

Hey Doc. Loved Dr. Rumbaut and loved how sesssi he was too. Gosh he was the first HOT doc I ever saw that worked on me.

I dont remember anything about the surgery other than the "Happy Pill" and recovery room. :)

Isn't that grande?

I need to add some resistance training to my running. And more stretching. Today I want to do some upper body weights - I need a weight bench.

Jacqui, I too would like a weight bench. My hubby has an inexpensive knock-off of the Bowflex in the garage but it's not in an ideal spot for me. I would like to do back exercises to strengthen my lower back.

In any event, here are my plans for today:

2.5 mile bike ride - 10mph, 130 pulse rate - didn't do this today but will do tomorrow

250 crunches

500 leg lifts

100 toe raises

100 bicep curls w/ 4lb. weight

100 tricep curls w/ 4lb. weight

100 lateral raises w/ 2lb. weight

It is just wonderful having gym equipment at home. I've always loved the gym but getting there was such a problem. My prime time of the day to exercise is about 4, 5pm, I have the most energy then and I have the time to do it. I could never go to the gym at that hour because of my kids. I've never been consistent like I have been since I started running and bought a treadmill. And I"ve never had results like I've had since then either!

Oh to have the space for a big weights station! But as it is the dining table has gone into a corner of the lounge room and the treadmill is taking pride of place in the eating nook in the family room, lol. We now have to sit down in the formal dining room to eat. I guess its away from the television so that's a good thing.

For the toe raises, I stand in front of the bar in my kitchen, rest my hands on top of the bar for balance, and then stand up on my tippy toes 100 (or more) times. You have to make sure that you're not using your hands to help you up so that you're only using your calf muscles.

I'm glad to hear that you're doing well on the leg lifts. I'm happy to have helped.

We're going to move soon as we need more bedrooms to accommodate our offspring, and we're going to have room for a complete home gym if its the last thing I do.

Unfortunately Australian houses dont have basements and attics. Very useful things, we get concrete slabs and brick veneer here.

I need some more running clothes. Well another sports bra at least. I'm waiting for them to finish in the dryer so I can do my 5km. I think I'll do an interval program today.
Jacqui, I found the greatest sports bra at Wal-mart, of all places. It's a Danskin racerback high impace underwire sports bra and was only $8.88, plus tax. They had several colors so I bought one in white and one in black.

Here are a few pictures...

Do they give much support? I have DD's :-( I've never tried anything like that, always stuck with a traditional underwire sports bra.

They have GREAT support. I made a point of jumping up and down in the dressing room to make sure they were securely in the bra. I barely bounced. I made it a point to buy a size smaller around so that they're very secure - I'm a 38D but bought a 36D.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      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!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        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.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        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.
