Hello July buddies! My surgery was 07/29/2013, almost 6 months ago. SW 246 CW 188 Goal 150 My weight loss has really slowed the past 2 months, only losing about 5-7 pounds. I keep yo-yoing between 187 and 188 for the past few weeks. It's the smallest I have been in 14 years and feel good, but I would really like to get another 20 off at least. Very frustrating :(

I feel soooo sooo much better. thrilled that I can put on a size 14/16 and it fits . Going to mexico for spring break so I need to tone up and lose more weight. :)

Six month check yesterday went great!

So happy that I finally made my mind up to get with the program to get healthy and fit. You have to do it for yourself, and be honest with yourself about your previous situations. Saying you want something doesn't magically make it happen. You need to be in the mind set to make a plan, work at it, set goal and keep going day in and day out. It's not a diet it is a lifestyle that is forever.

You can lose weight with just the surgery alone but your results won't be rewarding. Adding activity to your daily life is a huge part of it and seeing your progress is amazing. Knowing before you were winded by walking to the corner, then you can walk a mile. Setting a goal of doing something you have NEVER done like a push up, just one please Lord, now you can do ten or more.

I made the huge financial commitment to start with a personal trainer one month after my surgery. I needed to have someone I was obligated to with appointment times. We started small and I could only do 5 minutes on the treadmill, @ 2 miles an hour and no incline. My trainer had to modify things because I couldn't hold my legs up in the air so I used bands to help hold them. I could not make it through my 30 minute workout without stopping many times and I got sick a few times. This was two days a week, and a very small walk a few more days each week.

Update

Surgery Date- July 23, 2013

HW-265

CW-178

Pounds lost 87

Clothing- Size 22 before, currently size 12

I have lost in excess of 50 inches total. I didn't start tracking my measurements until one month after surgery when I started with the trainer.

Current exercise routine

M-W-F

I workout with the trainer, 30 minutes on treadmill (I go in early and do this by myself So I can have all my time with her training). Then 45 minutes of circuit training and cardio.

T &Th

I go to a local gym (military gym free to me) and workout by myself, treadmill and then weights.

I engage my husband and teenage son to help me too. I have them help me with my medicine ball workout, they throw the ball to me while I do sit ups, or help count or time me while I do planks or other exercises ( I get lost counting, helps to have someone giving me updates on where I am at)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note- at the gym there was a contest from Halloween to Jan. 2 to not put on any weight during this tempting time. You paid $5.00 to join and the money went into the pot. I won the challenge with 17 pounds lost. I won $50.00! I was going to buy a new piece of clothes for myself, but that is short lived. So, instead I put the money towards a work out watch that tracks my heart rate, calories burned and target work out level. This is a long term gift for myself.

I am doing my first 5K this weekend at a Color Me Rad event. I will walk and do a little bit of jogging for the 3.1 miles and have fun throwing color bombs along the way.

Finally in 1-derland! Yay!!!!

All time high 335 pounds

Weight at Surgery 285 pounds

Current Weight 195 pounds

Down 90 pounds!

Getting under 200 was my #1 goal, #2 goal to 195 and I'm here so that rocks!

My ultimate goal of 185, now within 10 pounds and my nutritionist told me that she thought 195 was a good weight for me, and 185 may be too low? I know I don't need to lose more, but stomach needs some help - maybe surgical?

I am down 78 pounds and about 20 to go. My mind has not comprehended that I have lost weight. Most of the time I still see the morbidly obese girl in the mirror. Hopefully I will start to see what I really look like more soon.

I went from 225 to 150. 20w to 8-10. My arms and thighs are sagging. I'm 51 and think I'd like to loose another 20 and then get tucked, if insurance will pay.
